i thought ED said something like he might have enough sample 2GB ram chips to not even have to order a batch. but if that's the case, it would make sense to shut down the 2GB preorders at some point (i.e., the cutoff of the sample quantities...)
ED needs to make benefits as fast as possible, because of the Pyra he owes money to investors, so it's not a good thing to do.true. what i was meaning was from say this point forward no more 2gb orders taken and only those guys that ordered the 2gb pyras get the upgrade for free. should have worded it better
Every time a lot of bandwidth is used you would notice (loading big files into RAM for example). I would assume you would notice the missing 2GB more as this is hard limit, less bandwidth slows stuff down but eventually it works (so you might not even notice).Stupid question: what sort of effect on day to day usage would this have? Would a 4GB feel faster?
That's the key question IMHO.Stupid question: what sort of effect on day to day usage would this have? Would a 4GB feel faster?
I don't play Minecraft myself but it's a fair point, and one which makes me kinda reconsider a bit about this whole dilemma I'm facing..
Ehh... Hardware-wise I'm kinda split since it's "upgradable", and weather or not the model happens to be standard or rare would just be a very small extra plus to me.Well, do you want a standard model or an extremely rare one, or do you even care?
Well, while that's true and a solid statement in it's own right you also have to remember that in order for me to upgrade; I'd need to contact ED and look into changing my order and that in itself makes more sense to wait with until the release is closer rather than stressing out over right now..I really don't think there will be much benefit to having a rare unit other than to you.
