    I agree.

    I still can't understand how one could say this is "3 times faster than hard drives", when there are plenty of hard drives that are actually faster than 53 MB/s (sustained speed).

    Bob,

    I wasn't trying to say that the drives are slow, that the tech isn't interesting, or that it has no place in a carPC.

    Even if by "Mpbs" and "Mbps" they mean MB/s, I'd hardly say that it's much faster than "hard drives". More like it's on par with a typical low-end desktop drive.

    Turbocad is right. A shunt would be the best way to do it. With the shunt, you measure the volage drop at the shunt, and calculate the current. This means there is zero risk of overloading your...

    Don't know about ATI cards, I am most familiar with nVidia.

    With nVidia, to get 800x480, you must create a custom resolution. It's pretty simple though.

    WTF are you saying?

    300-800V at ~60KHz, is what the inverter is outputting to the lamp for normal operation. To start the lamp, it gives a spike of 1500-1800V.

    At least this is the info that...

    I am reading the documentation for a Linfinity inverter right now. It states lamp start voltage at 1500-1800V.

    I may be wrong, but I think that LCD is 4:3 aspect and 640x480 (though it might be able to accept 1024x768 and convert it to 640x480).
