  • Mood:

Performance: How-Tos and Wherefores

Could someone kindly point me to some reliable information about:

  • the shelf life of magnetic vs. optical media (esp. SATA HDs vs. DVD-Rs & Blu-Ray)?

  • 64-bit OSes and software: is there a performance edge? If so, for what applications, and what benchmarks were used to assess performance?

  • how to make it so when Windows claims that "this device can perform faster"?


Thanks!
