:love:

Found a macthing pair of 5675's to pair with 24GB ram. For shits and giggles.
:love:. It gets difficult to put more than 24gb in on some of these boards.

18 slots. I will find more, now I know where to get some.

Not sure yet where its going, but might go AIO if it will work. Need to play a bit more to see what will work and what wont.

Nice!
AIO on 2011? It is possible, that would be epic, with some OC for the frequency and 2x 2080TI's. 😂 :eek:

It is 1366 still, next step is to test both sockets and ram and see how i can modify a cheapo tower cooler. Want to pair a 1050 in there unless i can get the power supply situation sorted out.

Edit, motherbard cannot OC, but the chips can go quite high.

LMAO that's cos IOS and OSX is crap don't bring that piece of garbage into this discussion thanks :p
So it's just stupidity that people are prepared to pay over 1000$ for an iPhone and over 3000$ for a Mac?😂😂
The system works, it's at least more secure than Huawei!

haha, its honestly the best mobile computer I have ever had. I travel so much that it makes sense, I can gladly forget my charger at home and work all day on battery. Or better, forgot it in my home country and buy another one at pretty much any airport or mall :)

I had the Lenovo P50 with a charger so large it got confiscated at the airport lol. Never again, that thing never got past 5 hours without.

This was posted as joke but it's still honestly a concern. If I hang onto my system for 5+ years who is to say the gap is still just 3 FPS in very demanding games?
Who is to say they're so close once the 1440P GPU bottlneck goes away?

It’s not about results. It’s about feelings and opinions.

The AMD hype train is in full swing and people are getting onboard because Intel no longer has an outright and clear advantage.

Give AMD some BIOS and driver updates and watch them make up that 3 FPS.

I went from having 4x 4930k render setups to 4x 1950X Threadrippers and it has been the best decision I have made. The equivalent Intel setup would give me half the power at double the cost.

For gaming - Choose whatever tickles your fancy.
For Work - I would highly recommend AMD.

I'm considering grabbing some of those 3990WX (Rumered to have 124 Cores) when they eventually get released.

And Windows/Game optimisations to allow related workloads to execute on the same chiplet, preventing that extra round-robin via the infinity fabric.

Exactly. AMD has a very buggy product out that’s still sticking it to Intel yet some updates later, I reckon AMD will be really good.

Meanwhile, Intel keeps refining 14nm and trying to tell people that their “new” products are entirely worthwhile and justify the huge overhead.

And Intel fanboys, don’t tell me they cost the same, AMD provides a cooler with their processors, and we all know how stupid the TDP ratings are on Intels products so you can’t not spend at least R950 to cool a 9700K/9900K.

That last part I'd actually be excited to see.

Gaming benchmark changes was a bit more varied in terms of results, particularly because we saw some larger degradations. The main reason here is that some titles while being multi-threaded, have only a limited number of threads. In these titles and situations where we’re not just purely bound by performance of a single large thread, it’s likely that we’re seeing the CPU clock slightly lower in the new release BIOS compared to what we tested originally. Our results were also consistent across multiple runs in this regard, so this isn't an artifact of normal run-to-run variation.
A little bit of an overclock to get the ghz back up and a WIndows patch or two and you'll see 5% gains across the board I reckon

Hmm. The prospect of getting something once B540 hits (or whatever the cheap version of X570 will be) is starting to look juicier.
100% completely agree. AMD 3700X on a B550 board could be a well priced wet dream. Save up for decent RAM though!

3800X with 3600Mhz RAM (what I'd rather aim for) will destroy the well-priced part a little though haha.
