Quadro Pascal differences except brute force power

Q: Quadro Pascal differences except brute force power

I am about to configure P72, and I don't know which GPU I should go. I searched everywhere, and I canot find datasheets of mobile GPUs (yeah thank you nVidia to have the same product names for mobile and desktop cards). None of my work is GPU accelerated. I am using 3 FHD 10 bit external displays via docking (EIZO CG range) which should work... But is there any functional differences between lets say P600 and P2000? Less monitors, 8 vs 10 bit outputs, nView, or anything? Or is it only about brute force power? I am always having only discrete graphics enabled and I am turning CPU-GPU off in BIOS. Other thing I can think of is power consumption, of course less is better, but I cannot find this info on these two cards. I also don't game. Basically I think P600 should be enough, but I am afraid it will be crippled somehow or cannot do 3xFHD @ 60 fps at 10 bit at ease. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Quadro Pascal differences except brute force power

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Mates,For those shopping for a powerful workstation card, the Pascal-based Quadros- P5000 (16GB)($2,500) and P6000 (24GB, $5,000) GPUs will shortly be joined by the P4000 (8GB). This appears to be an important  step from the M4000 performance (8GB).Release is said to be "Q4 2016". If true, this must be quite soon as Q4 2106 only has a couple of weeks left.I've added what information is available- there are a couple of gaps- to the Wikipedia Quadro article.>and here is the NVIDIA notice about the P4000.The GPU is the GP104GL, shared with the Quadro P5000. The P6000 uses the GP102GL, which is used in the GTX 1080Ti. The GTX1070 uses GP104-200 and GTX1080 uses GP104-400, having 2048 CUDA core, the P4000 is sort of in between GTX 1070 (1920 CUDA) and 1080 (2560) CUDA cores. Core clock 1544. Memory clock is listed as 1901 whereas the P5000 is 1607 and P6000 as 1417. Power use is not quoted, but I'm guessing 130-150W. The P5000 uses 180W and the P6000, 250W.The P4000 has not been benchmarked as far as I can find, but the Quadro M4000 is rated at 192 GB/s and it appears to perform above the Quadro M5000 (8GB) as the P4000's memory bandwidth is 243.3 GB/s to the M5000's 211GB/s.No price has been mentioned, but given the sequence of Quadro 4000 to K4000 to K4200 to M4000- perhaps somewhere $900 to$1,100 - but that is strictly a guess.As the M4000 costs about $800 and the performance will better the ~$1,800 M5000, the P4000, similar to the recent Pascal GTX's, is likely to be a...

Well in an attempt to reformat my (dell) computer, things got a little out of hand and basically what I have right now is 3 installed OSs and none of them work. The repair function does not work, and the computer does not boot from CD rom despite having set the BIOS to do so.
There is no floppy drive.
None of the system recovery/repair things will work.

I'm clueless as to what is next.
If I manage to get it to boot from a CD like it should, what utility should i be packin on that CD to reformat and re-partition the drive with as little hassle and BS as possible?

A:Brute force format

Doesn't sound like you ever formatted correctly if you now have 3 operating system choices.

Try pressing the DEL or F2 key to get to the system setup. From there you can change the boot order so it boots from the CD before the hard drive.

Then you would insert your XP or Windows2000 CD, boot from it and start the install. Early on you will given the option to format the drive.

This question has been asked multiple times in this forum, but there are no answers.
ATA is giving us indications that there are brute force attacks on several accounts. We have received this notification several times over the last few weeks.
In all cases, when we try to research where these attacks are coming from, we find that there is NO correlating information on our domain to track down these "attacks".
When I parse our domain security event log, there are no login attempts, there is no other information to show where these attacks are coming from.

A:Brute Force on a Website login?

Do you mean, force everybody to use a username/password if they want access,
or do you mean, is it possible to BREAK INto your website.
The answer is yes to the first, maybe to the second.
You need a secure server to keep others out.
Forced entrance is very difficult but not impossible. Security such as in online-banks is almost impenetrable, definitely for us normal earthlings.
But if you have a hacker's mind and enough computing power, you might find entry eventually.

This morning, when I turned on my monitor, my login screen was up. XP would not accept my password for my user account or my administrator account. After I ran a utility to reset the administrator password, I was able to log in. Once I did, I found Advanced Mass Sender on my computer. It appears that the hackers got in by brute force through Remote Desktop (RDP). 
Am I correct that RDP has no defense against a brute force attack? There are options for servers, but this is a standalone machine running XP Pro. (The machine is scheduled for retire, but it's not there yet.) 
Based on what I can see, they got in at 6:20AM. I discovered the problem before 7:00AM. Since I had to leave for the office, I didn't get to spend much time investigating, but it looks like there are not any logs for Advanced Mass Sender. I don't care if it sent emails. My concern is what other information might have been stolen from the computer. Where would they get passwords?
The machine is off line until I can do more investigation. RDP will be disabled. I still need a way to access the machine from the office. TeamViewer is great, but I cannot install it on my office machine. That's why I used RDP. Is there a way to limit RDP to a certain IP address? What would you suggest?

A:Remote Desktop and Brute Force

Set an account lockout policy
By setting your computer to lock an account for a period of time after a number of incorrect guesses, you will help prevent hackers from using automated password guessing tools from gaining access to your system (this is known as a "brute-force" attack). To set an account lockout policy:
    Go to Start-->Programs-->Administrative Tools-->Local Security Policy
    Under Account Policies-->Account Lockout Policies, set values for all three options. 3 invalid attempts with 3 minute lockout durations are reasonable choices.

I've just joined the site because I have a problem that I can't figure out or I'm stuck. I'm also not sure if I should post this here or in the general security part.
We have a domain with a user who randomly locks out every couple weeks or so. When it locks out it, it keeps locking out for an hour or so and she has to call helpdesk a couple times to have her account unlocked. We are a school and unfortunately our Network is wide open. If I need to close something, I need to do it on her computer. At first I thought it was something running on her computer that was causing the problem, but after checking through everything, couldn't find anything cached, etc.
At that time the security log wasn't big enough and by the time I got to her computer it was overwritten for the time when the account locked. Now, I finally got the security log and see that the source network address is not from our network. I traced it to china. It's always the same 2 ip addresses that try. They use different source ports. In the system at the same time, terminal services is saying that a remote session from client name a exceeded maximum allowed failed logon attempts. I've attached the system and a couple security logs. Always the same IP, but the source port does change.

It just became harder to distinguish bot behavior from human behavior.
Ask just about anyone the question ?What distinguishes an automated (bot) session from a human-driven session?? and you'll almost always get the same first answer: ?Speed.? And no wonder - it's our first intuition. Computers are just faster.

If you focus the question on credential brute-forcing, then it's even more intuitive. After all, the whole purpose of a brute-force attack is to cover as many options as possible, in the shortest possible time. Working quickly is just elementary, right?

Well, it turns out that this is not always the case. Most defenders, if not all, are already looking at speed and have created volumetric detections that are nothing more than time-based signatures. And that works, most of the time. But the attackers are getting smarter every day, and changing their attack methods. Suddenly, checking speed is no longer enough.

On the first week of October, we detected a credentials brute-force attack on one of our customers that commenced around 03:30am UTC. The attack, which lasted a few minutes shy of 34 hours, spanned a whopping 366,000 login attempts. Sounds like an easy case - 366K over 34 hours is over 10,000 attempts per hour.

But an easy catch? Not by existing volumetric detections, because the attack did not originate from one single IP address. In fact, we discovered that well over 1,000 different IP addresses participated in this attack. Let's... Read more

Scammers are exploiting a two-year-old security hole in Yahoo's network that gives them unlimited opportunities to guess login credentials for Yahoo Mail accounts, a researcher said.
The vulnerability resides in a web application that automates the process of logging in to the widely used webmail service. Because it fails to carry out a variety of security checks followed by the login page Yahoo! Mail users typically use, it's providing criminals with a backdoor through which user accounts can be breached, said Ryan Barnett, director of application security research at Breach Security

RDP brute force attacks: 5 tips to keep your business safe

The world?s workforce is becoming increasingly decentralized. The rise of remote working, outsourcing and cloud-based technologies continues to blur geographical boundaries while enabling small and medium-sized enterprises to tap into a deep and diverse talent pool.

To maintain the networks that support this type of working arrangement, many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) rely on off-site tech support teams using remote desktop protocol (RDP) to diagnose and repair network problems. RDP allows for secure network communications between a terminal server and a terminal server client. It is commonly used by network administrators to remotely access virtual desktops and applications.

Using RDP does carry a certain level of risk, particularly because unguarded remote desktops are quickly becoming the favored point of entry amongst hackers. Sadly, many companies are leaving themselves exposed by not following a few simple security measures.

I have a ThinkPad L480 running Windows 10 1803 with the latest update (KB4489894). It has the latest BIOS (1.31) and is in "OS Optimized" mode (i.e. Secure Boot enabled, etc.) When I power it on from a shut down state, the power and Fn key lights light up but nothing appears on the screen. The power and Fn key lights remain illuminated for 38 seconds and then turn off again. If I press and release the power button, press and hold the power button until the lights go off, then press and release again, then the computer starts up normally. I've tried re-loading the BIOS defaults but that didn't help. Any suggestions for other things to try?

A:ThinkPad L480 will not power on without a force power off

When you say you power up from a "shut down state:, are you referring to resuming from sleep (closing the lid, or pressing the power button (if power button is configured to put system to sleep), or had you previously done a complete shutdown using the Start Menu >>Shutdown method?     I ask because what you describe sound similar to what happens when a system fails to properly enter sleep mode, and thus requires a full reboot.     That is usually caused by a devices failing to enter a low power state and causing a BSOD, so if you think it might be sleep mode related, update all your drivers, including VPN software if installed, to the latest versions. The latest version of Windows 10 is also version 1809  build 17763.379, so are you running Windows 10 Pro, and not allowing Windows updates, or are you running Windows 10 Home and Windows Updates are failing. Best of luck,

I'm little apprehensive about recurrent force power shutdown I had to do during past one week in my lappy. First, I had to do it while the whole system got stuck up following Prime95 stability scan when I customised blend settings for CPU 100% load along with 92% memory usage. Next time it was when the system freezed following CoreTemp startup (when I researched it through forums i could notice that the freezing issue is a bug in their latest version still persisting while running on win 8.1 OS). The last one was when I had to do when while shutting down normally I unplugged the usb connection from the port and system remained 'on' for unusually long time while screen had already turned off.
This all happened in the past week. I had bought this system just 2 months back. Could anyone tell me if there is anything to worry about or give some advice regarding it?

We have several of this model experiencing this problem. Symptoms are the unit just powers down as if all power is removed. Nothing in eventviewer other than "system experienced and unexpected shut down". The only report I can find on this problem is in BIOS - Power logs "Power off - ASF2 force off" I have even had this happen whilst looking in the BIOS, so it's not an OS issue.
My understanding is the ASF stands for Alert Standard Format, which is built inot the firmware of (usually) network interfaces for business class machines. It is use for the OS absent remote control of machines by th IT deparment.
What I'd like to know is... What can be done to prevent this from happening? and What is happening to trigger the power off response in the ASF2 firmware? Any help would be gratefully recieved as I'd prefer to have some answers before going down any hardware swap out route.

Here's a puzzler... at least for me.

Can I force a G3/S6 power state from the Windows 7 OS?

Here is why...
When I shut down my laptop I want NOTHING to re-wake it,
except the mechanical on-button to boot..
It makes me nervous when it can wake itself.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (fully updated SP1)
On a Dell Vostro 3550, with the A12 BIOS.
(i3-2310, 8gb, Samsung 830 series ssd as boot drive - my own upgrade, not original)
This is a laptop used for personal use, at home.

I seem to have proven that
the Windows shut-down is to s5/g2,
allowing LAN (for example) to cause it to reboot.

AND, using the power-button (mechanical off) at the log-in screen
causes a "Windows did not shut down properly" on next boot.

When I leave LAN unplugged it seems not to reboot,
but when I leave it, it will always reboot, in a matter of seconds, to a matter of hours later.

What else have I done?

a. Bios... there is no "Wake on LAN" to disable.,
though that seems to be what usually triggers it
(I have not proven it is the only trigger, but... When the LAN cable is connected it is likely to restart itself)
Wake from USB has been disabled - No effect.

b. Device Manager -> Properties ->Power Management (all devices checked individually)
Check "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
unCheck " Allow this device to wake the computer".

A:ACPI Power states - Force G3/S6 from Windows. (vs mechanical)

You don't much mention having poked around in the bios, which is where most power settings originate. It remains an awful fact that MS power saving settings always have been, are now, and probably always will be, a total and utter mess. Especially on portables.

It is possibly understandable (I don't say forgivable) because the functionality is fundamentally split between the OS and the bios (which MS has no control over). Although there are supposed to be standards - you mention G5 and S6 yourself - the fact is those standards do not get finalised until long after manufacturers have been churning out kit corresponding to their own idea of what the standard might end up being. Only point 3 below solves that one - sometimes.

In short, you may never get fully compliant action on power settings, but........some sensible suggestions are:
(1) Create a new, personal power policy, and give it a personal name. Do this while logged in as your major user, and if you have more than one normal user, create a new one for each user. This often works, but only until the next major MS update.
(2) If the above fails to work for you, you can do no better than full shut down each time from the screen start button, and will have to live with that. It's very easy to add a desktop icon to make this simple
(3) FOR EXPERTS ONLY. Update the motherboard bios to the latest available. Never attempt this without complete knowledge as it is very easy to end up with an expensive door-stop.

I was in a rush to shut down my laptop so while windows was shutting down i held the power button for 5 secs to shut it down faster (I know, I'm so stupid!). But now programs that were still active at time of shutdown refuse to work. Some of these are office 2010 starter & Windows Installer (). Is there a fix for this?

A:Programs active after force close (hold power for 5 secs) won't work!

You should always close all programs before restarting or shutting down your pc. Sleep is the only mode where it is fine to leave your programs running.

You are going to need to do a repair on the programs in question, or uninstall and reinstall them.

For office:



For windows installer:

So... Before anyone tells me to send it to Logitech for repairs, I should mention that there are none that I know of in my area, and I'm not willing to pay R300 (ZAR) postage to send a big box 600km away to get my wheel 'checked'. Other than that, it's already nearly 3 years old and way out of warranty...

Now, onto the finer details. The force feedback suddenly stopped working one day a few months back. There was no funny smell or smoke or unusual amount of heat, etc.. Anyways, long story short: I suspect the motor is the culprit here, I can't see any damage or burn marks on the IC boards..

A Google search for the details on the side of the motor returns nothing even remotely related to Logitech or electronics in general, so I'm hoping someone can help point me in the right direction here.

Markings on the side:
* Made in China

The * above is a symbol, almost like a logo, but I don't recognise it... I've redrawn it in Paint (see attached), perhaps someone else knows it...? Other than that, I've also attached a photo of the motor with a CD beneath it for a size reference.

I don't play racing games enough to warrant buying a new wheel, and everything else on the wheel still works, I simply don't have any force feedback and the wheel obviously doesn't center itself anymore (no springs, all done with the motor). If anybody can help point me in the right direction with looking for a way to either test / repair / replace this motor, I would be eter... Read more

A:Logitech Driving Force EX - Force Feedback Motor Query

Hello, I am also facing the same problem as faced by you. The wheel is working fine but there is no ff. I dont know whether the fault lies with adapter or with motor or it is a circuit problem. Could you please tell me how did you manage to solve your problem??

Hello everyone!

I am looking for information on a issue I have when I open Delta Force Task Force Dagger.

The game will actually open two instances of itself, I will be able to play in the one that pops up but when I click on the Exit button there is still a instance on the start bar. I have to maximize that then it goes back into the game which at that point I have to click the exit button again and then the program is closed.

I checked on Novalogic's web site support and even emailed them but no resolve either way.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hey ppl,

I know that its possible to edit Windows Registry by MS-dos with the reg command, like change/add velues, keys, etc.
What i would like to know is if it is possible to do this by a pascal program, like a program that when executed add a velue or any thing i want to add/change/delete in Registry. I'm doing a project with pascal and i need this.
P.s. Sorry about my bad Englidh, if it is bad...
