Windows 8.1 not for gamers?

This is bad news for gamers who use Logitech (all) mouse on Windows 8.1. It doesn’t metter what settings you choose, it is not possible to increase the USB polling rate via software or hardware over 180 Hz! In most cases, this is incompatible driver issue. I hope Logitech will fix this, or is this another Windows 8.1 bug?

It will be really hard to get to the Top 20 Resultshwbot.org

Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit operating system.

Browser Wars 2013 Part 1 (January)

Browser Wars is a metaphorical term that refers to competitions for dominance in usage share in the web browser marketplace. The term is often used to denote two specific rivalries: the competition that saw Microsoft’s Internet Explorer replace Netscape’s Navigator as the dominant browser during the late 1990’s and the erosion of Internet Explorer’s market share since 2003 by a collection of emerging browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

ReFS vs NTFS Benchmark

ReFS (Resilient File System, originally codenamed Protogon) is a new file system initially intended for file servers that improves on NTFS in Windows Server 2012. The project originally started out as Monolithic NTFS (MNTFS) and then ended up codenamed Protogon before the final ReFS naming was chosen.

Microsoft claims ReFS has been built from the ground up, to meet the demands of the storage requirements needed by Windows users. It offers the ability to handle large storage volumes (maximum volume size of 1 Yobibyte), shared storage pools across multiple machines and enhanced resiliency to corruption.

Surendra Verma, the development manager for the Storage and File System team wrote:

“ReFS inherits the features and semantics from NTFS including BitLocker encryption, access-control lists for security, USN journal, change notifications, symbolic links, junction points, mount points, reparse points, volume snapshots, file IDs, and oplocks.”
