With 2022 at a close, we wanted to look back at the sales trends we saw for CPU, GPU, storage, and OS.
Windows 11 has officially been out for 8 months, and most applications now have official support for the new operating system. When it initially launched, we saw measurable performance issues with Windows 11 in content creation applications, but have those gone away now that the OS has had time to mature?
Due to the new hybrid architecture used on the 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors (code-named “Alder Lake”), Windows 11 is recommended in order for the Thread Director to be fully operational. But does this actually make a difference in the real world, or are their other issues that would actually make Windows 10 the better option?
Windows 11 is the latest version of Microsoft’s consumer and professional operating system. Debuting in October 2021, it includes many user interface updates as well as various improvements under the hood. We’ve had a lot of questions from both new and existing customers about Windows 11, so we have compiled this FAQ to answer the most commonly asked queries.
When the performance of AMD’s Threadripper processors is brought up, the discussion can often turn toward some of the oddities of this CPU’s architecture and how it interacts with thread scheduling in Windows 10. That is something which AMD has attempted to improve with their Ryzen Master software, and which has been partially addressed by Microsoft as well (via Windows updates). Some folks in the wider AMD enthusiast community have tried to tackle this issue too.
Linux is often considered the operating system of choice for power users, but does DaVinci Resolve actually perform any better in it than in Windows? Even if it does, is it enough to compensate for Linux’s much higher learning curve?
Regardless of why you are considering moving from Mac to PC, we understand that you probably have a host of questions and concerns. In this article, we want to address a number of questions we get asked over and over from people looking to make the move to PC.
We’ve been hearing from a regular stream of customers who are making the move from Mac OS X to Windows, and they often have questions about how to perform basic tasks on their new Puget Systems PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. So we created this Start Guide to help them around their new desktop.
The End Of Support deadline for Windows XP quickly approaching, and many users do not have a very good understanding of what exactly this means. In this Q&A article, we want to answer what “end of support” actually means for all the computers out there that are still running Windows XP.
When Windows 8 launched, there were many users who mourned the loss of the Start button, and many others who claimed that the new Start screen was much more useful than the Start button ever was. As tends to happen on the internet, this caused many heated discussions. With Windows 8.1, Microsoft has (sort of) brought back the Start button in response to the many complaints.
