Pros: My Company bought one for a new workstation build. Ir runs plenty fast... I ran a benchmark on it and purely from a graphics rating prospective, it's faster than a GTX 680. That means that it's about double as expensive as gaming cards for the raw computing power you get... But this is Workstation graphics.
Cons: Drivers are still being updated constantly... Nvidia has a reputation for better drivers than AMD.
Other Thoughts: In terms of raw power, this card is great, better than the quadro 5000 (not sure about the k5000 yet). The problem you could run into is drivers and support for your application. As the drivers are optimized, the hardware will be able to utilize its full potential.. As I said before, the power in the GPU Passmark benchmark that I ran is faster than GTX 680. In actual applications it depends on what you're doing... Also it's hard to say where the W8000 will ultimately end up; even then though, you still have to look at your application. It's not easy to just say buy this since there are so many variables on the driver/software end of things. As for hardware, AMD has a reputation for giving you more for your money than Nvidia.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA S102 Pro 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AS102P-16G-RBL
Pros: This flash drive is very fast and a great choice for all-around compatibility. I've made different kinds of bootable images on here and it works fine; also, the speed of doing all this is amazingly fast. It's probably about 10 times faster vs. installing from DVD. you can use it to save files or to boot or as a hard drive/encrypted volume.... whatever
Cons: It says "no more lost caps" as an advertisement but it has a cap... Any cap is easy to loose even if you can snap it on the back;; I still have to get used to doing this, almost lost the cap a couple times.
Other Thoughts: It was a great value when I bought it for the price paid. I have to say that this is one of the best USB 3.0 16GB flash drives I've owned. The only major con is that it has a cap. I like the design of the patriot xporter rage the best.. bit it's usb2.0. Overall a great drive and a great value; the case is very nice metal and plastic but it does have a cap which (contrary to advertising) can be lost rather easily. For the ten dollar price though, you can't beat it!READ FULL REVIEW
