    Question Best router for my household

    I'm looking to replace my router since we just lost the 2.4GHz band wireless. I'm looking for a high bandwidth/capacity router since I have multiple people using the network for video calls daily. I have no solid budget, just nothing industrial and expensive, ie 500 dollars.

    [SOLVED] m.2 port running at x2 instead of x4

    Hi, I just picked up a new Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500gb NVMe drive and all benchmark tests are running at roughly half speed. According to the Samsung Magician software, I'm running on PCIe Gen 3x2, but the motherboard (GA-Z170x-UD5 TH) manual says that the m.2 shares bandwidth with the PCIe x4...

    Question Does limiting download speed make my pc use less bandwidth?

    I am downloading something on my pc and i have the option to limit the download speed to a certain amount (900 kbs, 800kbs, etc). Will doing this make my pc use less bandwidth/internet? OR will my pc hoard bandwidth but just not use all of it? Btw, im using utorrent to download

    [SOLVED] Would 2 routers provide higher bandwidth/reduce bandwidth-related problems?

    Hi guys. I currently have rather poor internet speeds (7Mbps down, 1Mbps up), and due to the mostly large number of devices connected to our router (+ bandwidth-hogging devices, e.g. streaming devices), the internet becomes essentially unusable besides general internet browsing. I am currently...

    [SOLVED] Can a really bad Download/Upload speed affect latency (ping) ?

    What i've understood is that latency is the time it takes for a signal to travel from point A to point B and to come back from point B to point A. Download/Upload speed would be the amount of data that is Received or Sent in 1 "trip", so, in theory, they should be unrelated. My question is...

    Question Bandwidth DDR4 vs. DDR3.

    Though DDR4 came with higher frequencies, it also came with higher CAS Latencies (CL), resulting in a pretty small improvement regarding responsiveness, over DDR3. How is the bandwidth of DDR4 compared to DDR3? Are there any improvements? (as it is between single channel vs. dual channel; or...

    [SOLVED] Performance with 3 sticks of ram

    So I've heard you can use 3 sticks of ram on your motherboard, but I've also heard it could decrease performance because you have to use one stick in single channel mode. My question is, if ram usage stays under 8gb (assuming there are 2x4gb sticks running in dual channel and one 4gb stick...

    [SOLVED] Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a highspeed interconnect between computers in a cluster?

    Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a high speed interconnect between computers in a cluster? You could get the lower latency than PCIe and a decent amount of bandwidth (according to kanewolf, latency is WAY more important than bandwidth). So would that work?
