Not on PC!
Huh, I was pretty sure that xInput games did.
Well, it's really not that crazy considering the power. Wonder how well it will be supported by the mobo vendors, so you can save on that.
You're right, considering the server/workstation power it's not that nuts. The time saving on rendering alone could make it worth the money. For us gamers though...
The mobo guys will love it tbough - a great excuse to put out new premium priced motherboards cos it's the high-end desktop market!
Though maybe the fact that Kaby Lake-X is just going to run dual-channel memory and not have so many cores will prompt them to make more affordable, cut-down X299 boards.
Heh, maybe. But my case doesn't have enough space for 4 ssd (both in terms of space for SATA SSDs that plug in into the drive bay and in terms of pci-e slots) and I need at least 1tb to be comfortable with all the shit I install/play.
Yeah, in that case it's going to have to be an old spinning platter then I'm afraid, unless you start saving. 1TB SSDs are still about £300/$300 :(
Most games auto pause when the controller goes dead, though with Multiplayer you are SOL.
As far as I'm aware there is no way to overclock the standard spinning platters of a hard drive. The 10,000RPM Western Digital Raptor drives are the speediest traditional HDD I've seen and even then is a long way behind even old SSDs.
Though Intel were working on storage overclocking that was only for SSDs.
If the bottleneck in your system is the storage your only option is to upgrade to an SSD I'm afraid.
I believe the attrition rate on modern solid state drives though is getting beyond HDDs now and while there is far less space for the cash 250GB SSDs are now quite affordable.
