Windows 8 RTC Bug Affects Intel Platform Benchmark Results

The folks at HWBOT have discovered a flaw in Windows 8 real-time clock (RTC) implementation that affect how the operating system’s sense of time. According to the site, “Microsoft made changes to how it measures time to be compatible with embedded or low cost PCs that do not have a fixed RTC clock.” How does this affect the benchmark results?

Due to the cost, Thunderbolt port only appears on high-end motherboards and laptops. As a result, we have not seen the market filled with devices equipped with such port. As you may recall, Thunderbolt is Intel’s solution to essentially unify every external I/O ports (display, graphics, storages, etc) to a single connector. With up to 10GB/s bi-directional bandwidth, it doubles the speed that USB 3.0 offers, and is backward compatible with USB 3.0 ports.

USB alliance finalizes USB 3.1 specifications, gives us speed up to 10Gbps

usb31

While USB 3.0 might not be as fast as Thunderbolt is has one huge advantage: it actually is rolled out and used by tons of computers and peripherals. Now the USB Alliance has finalized the specifications for the next update of USB: USB 3.1. As always the standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 but to get all the benefits of the new specification we will have to wait until it is implemented in computers and peripherals start using it.  No related posts.
