I'm truly sorry if this upsets you but as I also explained in the same PM the AVS forum is a hobby for me that I do because I enjoy it but my time is limited and better spent in other areas. I do like talking about the tech, but a lot less so talking about semantics between you and I. If you can't understand or see how faster ram speed and lower CAS and higher quality ram can't improve CPU and iGPU performance then I'd point you towards google to find that answer. It's not hard to find that answer. How about instead of my wasting my time trying to convince you that instead you prove to me otherwise? It seems like it's more important to you than it is to me, which is odd considering I'm right about this. I'm not wasting my time arguing with you for no reason anymore if there is nothing to be gained. Your posting style in general isn't respectful, or kind, or even cordial so therefore you are unworthy of the effort of a proper response.
Fixed that for you.
Actually you explained that you rarely read everything anyone
says and you basically just skim posts "to get the gist." I'm guessing I'm not the only one that finds that insulting.
I think if you'll look at the majority of my posts here I treat most people with a great deal of respect. I do my best to start off treating everyone with respect, but some people go out of their way (such as yourself) to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that they don't deserve my respect. First and foremost, you disrespect hundreds if not thousands of people on here every time (which is often) you make your condescending, elitist comments, putting down the people that don't do things the way you think they should be done.
Furthermore, you continue, despite being called out on it by several people around here on several occasions to spout off your opinion as if it is a fact. Which is further compounded by the fact that your opinions are often categorically wrong
. Sure you're entitled to your opinion, and to a degree, even entitled to share it, but what you're not entitled to do is to share it as if it is fact. This is a science forum. Your opinion means nothing
when the evidence
is to the contrary.
As far as faster ram goes, once again the difference between you and I is I actually have an understanding of how PC's work. You have some superficial knowledge, and you try and extrapolate from that in ways that aren't correct. I know
how a PC works. I know
what memory is, how it works, and how it is accessed. More importantly to this conversation I know how it interacts with other components of a PC, and I know what things will be affected by memory and what won't.
What you know
is that PC2400 is faster than PC1600 memory. You think that since memory can
impact system performance that faster memory will
make any/every PC faster. And what you think
is wrong. Increasing the speed of the memory is only going to have a meaningful
impact on tasks that are doing heavy reads or writes to system memory. It will only have a really significant
impact on applications that are actually memory-bound and limited by the speed of the memory. Very few things you are likely to do on an HTPC are going to be heavily reading or writing from memory. And nothing I can think of on an HTPC is going to actually be memory bound. The limiting factor on almost all PC applications will be either CPU, Disk or User bound. I'd use an analogy to make it easier to understand, but I know that you won't read it, and even if you did, you'd just claim you didn't understand anyway. But if you had bothered to read what I've actually written and address what I've actually said, you'd know that I agree that faster RAM can
make a difference in some systems. No doubt about that. What I'm saying is that it won't make a meaningful difference on HTPC systems, and I'm confident about that because frankly I know more about this stuff than you do. I have more experience with it. I've been doing it longer. I've had more exposure to it, and I actually have a working knowledge of it. I didn't just do something a couple of times, and then try and pass myself off as an expert.
And as I stated earlier in my response to your PM, if you're not going to go to the trouble of reading my posts thoroughly, then don't comment on them. If you're not willing to even listen to what I have to say, then don't bother to respond. I don't need the internet equivalent of some guy standing there while I'm talking saying "uh huh." just waiting for his turn to talk again. No matter how far off base the things are that you write, I still take the time to read them all and address them. If you're not willing to do the same in return, then you've proven beyond the shadow of a doubt you don't deserve my respect.
There are plenty of people on this forum with whom I disagree with often, and sometimes vehemently. But I still have respect for most of them as they always make an honest attempt to engage in a discussion, and are open minded enough to at least read the information put in front of them, and to provide inofmration of their own to back up their assertions when called upon to do so. I respect those people a great deal.
But your insistence on spreading misinformation is a plague on this board, and I can only hope one day you learn to see the error of your ways. This is the A/V Science
forums. Opinions are welcome, but only when presented as such.
