I'd recommend at least getting a Maxwell chip if you're gonna buy in right now
which one? well, that comes down to price
despite being someone who's traditionally on the Red Team (AMD), I have to recommend the Maxwell architecture as the most cost and power-efficient (and also fastest, in most gaming benchmarks and at least a few compute benchmarks too) GPU architecture right now.
funny how the different applications of GPU technology have different leaders for each sector
Intel's IGPs, strangely enough, are the fastest at fixed-function video encoding. Go figure. And the quality is awesome, too.
Nvidia is best at gaming, and quite good at compute, but their consumer cards just can't keep up with AMD on compute, so AMD is technically the compute winner. Especially since I don't think there's a Maxwell Tesla out yet.
and Nvidia is dead last in terms of fixed function encoding speed.
What steps can be taken when a user gives endless, long-winded, and bellicose comments expressing opinionated answers almost every time you post a question?

@JourneymanGeek Well there's a fair amount of information that could indicate a file difference. Trouble is, some of it, I am yet to find a way to compare. For example - one of the main issues we have is an immediate difference in file name (to an extent). Eg. "Drawing1**#A**.dgn" and "Drawing1**#B**.dgn". There may be a difference in file type too, just to make things more complex. Eg. "Drawing1#A.**dgn**" and "Drawing1#A.**dwg**"
Then there's a difference in Date Modified (once you have identified the files you want to compare), possibly the file size.
File verification is the process of using an algorithm for verifying the integrity or authenticity of a computer file. This can be done by comparing two files bit-by-bit, but requires two copies of the same file, and may miss systematic corruptions which might occur to both files. A more popular approach is to also store checksums (hashes) (message digests) of files for later comparison.
== Integrity verification ==
File integrity can be compromised, usually referred to as the file becoming corrupted. A file can become corrupted by a variety of ways: faulty storage media, errors in transmission...
I am searching for a software that will compare all files from two archives.
Mark the files that are different (have modification) between them.
Mark *New for files that are not in second archive (or in one and not the other)
When you open one of the files modified to show difference...
I'm trying to find a program that will compare two directories full of these drawing and image files.
What this will be used for, is to update a full directory of drawings on a periodic basis. The directory will contain many folders, sub-folders, and sub-sub-folders and so on.
I want to be abl...
