Why is NG only installing on machines with SSD Drives? :)

+1.

NG was supposed to succeed Deepscreen so now what for normal HDD users?

What's happening with Dyna-Gen?

Since NG is gone for HDD users and Dyna-Gen is not known yet... what has avast! 2015 improved on in terms of detection and zero day malware?

HTTPs scanning won't make much of a difference.

To be honest to a content, I don't see much of a difference.

Agreed!! So what's the catch with NG here?? Why only for SSD's?? We will be loosing fair amount of protection without it.So is dyna-gen going to be as effective or better than NG.Hopefully,we will have these technologies in place.

Is this only going to be this way only in the RC 2?? Hope it is as if not we need dyna-gen to be as effective or better with or without NG.

Seriously, WTF!? NG only for SSD systems? From limited range of virtualization and powerful enough systems you have narrowed it down to only systems with SSD drives which means a tiny % out of 200 million users will be even able to use it. This will be yet another useless release by avast!. Well done... ::)

I have a system with friggin 18GB of RAM where i can run 4 virtualized systems in real-time with each having 4GB of dedicated memory and yet i can't use NG at all because i don't have SSD. You guys make absolutely no sense.

Hi gyus.

NG won't be just for SSD, still working on better determination system requirements. We just don't want end up in situation, that after avast installation your computer is unusable ;-)

Browser Cleanup issues will be fixed during October.

Windows 10 support will be added in upcoming versions, definitely not in V2015 R1.

So this yet again means we won't get NG on a avast! 2015 release day. Do you ever actually release anything new on the actual relase day or do you just always release just a new GUI and add new stuff that actually matters half a year later? Not cool and just confirms the problem yet again that i've stated in the RC2 thread...

For good performance of NG, it is critical to have a system disk with good random read performance. In final version, there will be no hard SSD condition, but rather a 16kB random read performance requirement (2 MB/s for example). Also it will be possible to install NG through installer even if disk performance condition isn't met.

It is possible to check the performance of system volume by "winsat disk -ran -read -drive c" command.

3,84 MB/s with my HDD (WD Caviar Black 2TB).

Good to hear it won't be blocked entirely, because that would be really stupid.

- you will get NG on avast! 2015 release day
- new release contains more improvements Home Network Securit, SecureDNS, https scanning
- your complains in another thread are under investigation

I know i sound totally negative lately and all, but every such news really drags me straight down to the bottom, that's why i express my concerns so "harshly". I just wish a 2015 release will be a properly punchy one, so people get more faith into avast! capabilities. That's all.

1.03 MBs on my 500 GB Hitachi HTS545050A7E380 HDD Drive.

Now we know whats going on with NG.

But what about Dyna-Gen, is it ready yet, and when will it come in? :)

I must point out that there a problem when you run intelligent scanning !! basically says that there are problems inside the network and then running a scan on the targeted network ok

To reply to your questions regarding the improved detection capabilities, all of these are supposed to be enabled till the end of this week.
That is, starting early next week, you should see a significant pop in detection rates from Avast (namely Avast 2015).


DynaGen is just one of the things that will get enabled. There is at least two more similar things that have been in the pipeline for a while but were not enabled until A2015.

And regarding NG, I think it's been communicated very poorly here so far. Let me try to fix that. In a nutshell, NG is an underlying technology that you shouldn't really have to worry about. It replaces the old DeepScreen sandbox on machines that can handle it. On other machines, it doesn't -- but that's not a huge issue because all the DeepScreen results are now stored in the cloud in real time, so even if your machine is not NG-capable, chances are that some other Avast user, with a NG-capable machine, has already seen your file before. The SSD requirement will not be there in the final version, but we've put it there for now to get some additional telemetry data.

The NG browsers were there as a test. To be honest with you, we saw that the technology is not quite ready yet to be completely rolled out in such a mode (e.g. for general purpose browsing) and we still have quite some work to get there. This will be our goal for the upcoming months.

Thanks

what about systems which have multiple HDD and SSD ?
can't you simply determine/ask for the volume usable for the NG operations ?
