Now, let's see how the number of BUFFERS affects the download speed... The card is manually set to what seems the optimal setting - 100 HD. 1 - seems to hang after transferring 8192 Bytes... 2 - seems to hang after transferring 40960 Bytes... 4 - 1703 KB/s 8 - 1703 KB/s 16 - 1721 KB/s 32 - 1715 KB/s …
