Trim? - from Chad:
"Hello, I'm going to be picking up a Crucial MX100 512gig SSD to replace the boot drive for my desktop. I'll be doing a clean install on my system when this goes in and heard that it's best to change something in the BIOS to "TRIM". Does this sound right and could you clarify if there is an additional step when installing an SSD? Thanks and love the show."
H.265 - from Dysthymia:
"A quick google on the h.265 spec shows that it was finalized sometime last year. Do you think we'll finally see hardware accelerated encoding and decoding of h.265 video with the Nvidia 800 series and AMD 300 series?"
