I'm hardly a newbie, but the latest rounds of processor announcements seem to have left me in the dust. I was raised on MIPS (KIPS, actually - I'm kinda grey at the edges!) so I was right up to speed on specs quoted in MHz and GHz, which is almost the same thing. I have a nice 2-year old Pentium processor running at 2.8Ghz and would lust for more sometime, since I do a lot of photo and video work. But suddenly once the 3 GHz barrier was broken, allovasudden I don't see this spec any more. Instead there is dual Dual-core, or 64 bit ultra processors, or whatever - presumably are better and more powerful, but how much?
Could somebody point me to the idiots guide to current processor performance specs, that links to the older GHz metric?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
