About this book
內容介紹 一、幀數≠畫質 內顯≠超值 最強內顯 vs.入門獨顯 隨著時代的進步,在家用市場端,CPU的效能漸有過剩趨勢,即便是三千元以下的低階處理器,大多數場合尚能應付,不像早期還得靠超頻補足效能,才會有順暢 愉快的使用體驗。近年來,包括英特爾(Intel)與超微(AMD)兩家處理器大廠,莫不強調其內顯平臺火力強大,應付市面上多數遊戲綽綽有餘。但對於電 競實戰來說,往往還是得插上一張獨立顯示卡,方能確保遊戲流暢運行。因此,顯示卡挑選正確與否,則將決定性影響你的遊戲體驗是否痛快。由內顯晶片佔據 Die Size比例越來越大,便不難看出處理器大廠近年來對繪圖效能的重視程度。時值暑假,胖達本期進行了最強內顯與入門獨顯之間的對決評比,並從價格、規格及 效能三大面向,剖析兩者之間的優劣勝敗。同時,給你平臺組裝上的一些建議,讓你擁有一個刺激歡樂的電競假期。 二、量身打造 精挑細選 機殼選擇守則 機殼,是電腦的家,在自組電腦的過程中,機殼是少不了的,但許多首次嘗試組機的玩家挑了整套效能強勁的配備,卻在機殼的部分過於妥協或隨性,偏向於現場挑 順眼的,或是價格低廉的產品來壓縮預算,每每在一兩年進行部分零件更換或擴充時才怨嘆自己遇「殼」不淑,當然,價格高昂的機殼確實有著不錯的用料與多功能 性,但小編將告訴讀者,挑選機殼只要掌握幾個原則,也能有限的預算上發揮最佳的效果。 三、夏日大作戰 散熱不嫌煩 頂上對決!CPU散熱器極限考驗 隨著氣溫日漸攀升,又到了DIY玩家動手改裝CPU散熱器的時期,對於非超頻的使用者來說,更換CPU散熱器的必要性或許不如以往那麼迫切,但是好的 CPU散熱器,也能確保高負載時的穩定,更有助於機殼內部的熱隊流,使機殼內部不至於在夏日成為恐怖的三溫暖,而對於有在超頻的Z77使用者、甚至是 X79平台的重度玩家,CPU散熱器更是不可或缺的改裝周邊之一,就在今年底即將推出Ivy Bridge-E之前,編輯部特地以Sandy Bridge-E為平台,來進行一場高階CPU散熱器大對決,讓各位讀者一飽眼福。 四、風流上下左右 電腦散熱怎回事? 八月,正值盛夏的時節,這時候的天氣不但是人會覺得難熬,對電腦來說也很難熬;當你在房間裡熱到汗流浹背,身上脫到只剩一件小YG的時候,電腦此時卻可能 還穿著厚重的裝甲正在熱血燃燒,你可曾想過要讓他涼爽一點呢?在不改變機殼架構的情況下,我們要怎麼利用風扇來達到最好的散熱效果?本期就讓筆者來個土法 煉鋼的實驗為各位解謎吧! -- 目錄 012 靚品大觀 實現數位家庭雲端化 就從BUFFALO LinkStation LS400系列開始!

Works prefectly on my Xbox One, the difference between this and the wd passport is that with the passport your paying an additional fee for the wd backup software.

    "1.8 TB" actual, but expected.

    **XBOX ONE OWNERS**This is a nice, compact drive that is lightweight, and can safely be "stacked" on top of a console or PC with no threat of crushing or leaving indents after long periods of sitting. It can easily become inconspicuous, and even in view it is not much of an eye sore. As a matter of fact, it's black coloring goes just fine - sitting on top of my XBox One(top left - DO NOT PLACE THE DRIVE ON THE TOP RIGHT OF THE CONSOLE WHERE THE VENTILATION IS).XBox One owners who have reached their storage limits would appreciate this. It IS practically "PLUG & PLAY". Practically, because you must not plug the drive usb into the console until you have FIRST powered up your console. I plugged - then powered up the first attempt, and the XBox didn't even sense it. Power up the console(give it time to load your home screen), plug in the HD's usb(I plugged it in the "rear" of the console), go to "Settings", then "Storage"... 5/5 Apparition - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Dependable USB 3.0 Drive, New 3TB & 4TB Models, Faster Than Last Year's Model

    This model is the 2015 generation of the many My Passport drives I've owned or purchased for clients. They have proven reliable and good performers. They have incrementally improved with each new generation.BOTTOM LINE (for the impatient):The new model is a little bit faster than last year's and adds a 3TB and 4TB model. This My Passport Ultra has a more attractive satiny finish and there is now a white model to fit in better for Mac users. Otherwise it's almost identical to the older model.If these differences are not important for you, you may want to get this or depending on which is least expensive. You'll have an excellent drive in either case.NOTE: As of Oct. 10th there is a... 5/5 Stephanie Sullivan (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews, May 31, 2015

    WD 1TB Black My Passport Ultra - worked flawlessly

    This is the first time I have ever used a portable (tiny) external hard drive. I currently use a Cavalry dual disk external drive in RAID configuration which is huge and not really portable.This new WD drive is fantastic in that it is quite small, doesn't require external power, and it is quite good looking. It is amazing how they fit 1 TB drive in such a small package. One bonus is that when I replace my computer in future with one that has USB 3.0 interface, this drive can handle that.

My only note on this is I would say it should be referred to as a "rigid" case and not a "hard" case. When I think of a "hard" case I think of something that does not flex much at all.

    Excellent Drive for the Price and Physical Size

    Great drive for the price, especially when you catch it on sale. Snagged my 3TB Silver Ultra Metal for $89.22. The only cons I can think of is the cable that comes with it is ridiculously short, around 12 to 14" tops and the top speeds could be higher but can't really knock it considering it is ~5800(can't remember exact RMP but it's close to 5800) RPM drive and not 7200 due to the physical size of the drive itself. With a new Z170 chipset motherboard and a USB 3.0 port it tops out at ~128-132 MegaBytes a second on sequential read and write. The 4K random speeds are horrible of course, just like any other mechanical drive but I will give it 4 stars since it is a very affordable and extremely tiny and light weight external drive.I put it through a 38 hour long read/write stress test over Christmas weekend and it came back with zero bad sectors or any other problems. I do this with all new HDD's/SSD's to make sure it isn't a lemon and I highly recommend everyone do... 4/5 Strat79 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: WD 1TB Silver My Passport Ultra Metal Edition Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBTYH0010BSL-NESN (Personal Computers) I purchased this based upon the WD name for reliable, quality products. I use it with my Mac using OS X El Capitan 10.11.3. To use with Mac, open the disk utility and reformat it. You can partition it to one partition or several partitions based upon how you plan to use it. The external hard drive comes formatted to work with a PC out of the box.I don't have to travel with my external hard drive but it's lightweight and small should I need to do so.I keep it on my desk in a stand that I purchased for my iPhone 6 Plus. I connect it to my MacBook Air when needed. It's a great source to use to backup using Time Machine or to load music, photos, and other files that you don't need to store on your computer which will leave more space on your computer.If you're a Mac user and hesitant about purchasing this external hard drive, then don't be!!

    WD Passport stops working!!

    2/5 Sam - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD 2TB Blue-Black My Passport Ultra Metal Edition Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBEZW0020BBA-NESN (Personal Computers) I purchased this in February 19th, 2015, as my previous 1 TB passport stopped working. I purchased a hard shell case as I would be storing important data and didn't want the drive the stop working as my previous one did. Every-time I used it, I would handle it with the utmost care as I felt my previous passport failed as I let it roll around in my knapsack. Three months later, when I was staring the drive up, it stopped working. I could hear and see the light functioning, but it was not opening up all the data I had stored on it. I tried multiple times over the next several weeks but no response from the drive. 70% of the items I had on this drive, I backed up to several USB drives, so I still have these files, the rest is gone. This is twice I purchased a WD Passport and it has failed, I will not be purchasing or recommending this product.

    Excellent Drive, Sequential Writes/Reads Faster Than 2015 Model, New Case NOT An Improvement

    This model is the latest generation of the many My Passport drives I've owned or purchased for clients for use on both PC and Mac computers. They have proven reliable and good performers and incrementally improved with each new generation.The ONLY difference between the Mac and PC versions is the initial formatting and pre-installed software suite (which can be downloaded from Western Digital). Getting the Mac version saves some time for the Mac user. That's about it.This 2016 model features a new case design which has sharp 90 degree corners and a shiny finish that shows fingerprints and scratches easily. In my case I get these drives for how they work much more than how they look, but recognize others may feel differently.BOTTOM LINE (for the impatient):The new model is a little bit faster than last year's and includes the 4TB model. A 4TB model to the previous generation My Passport Ultra for PC in early 2016, but the Mac specific version... 5/5 Stephanie Sullivan (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews, November 2, 2016
