    I doubt it will even be measurable/perceptible.

    iRacing. Quest is selling like hotcakes. 2nd gen headsets are launching. I'd say it's following the typical Gartner' curve.

    I've played around a bunch with different systems/specs, and the answer is "it depends." Are you ok with outside in tracking? Does screen door bother you? Does ghosting bother you? Are black levels important? Fov? Reprojection? Etc.etc. I...

    Except pcie 4 is a big fat meh. Maybe in a few years it'll matter at which point mobos will be way cheaper, but right now nothing can use it except nvme drives doing large file transfers. If I cared much about that I could nvme raid on existing...

    1920x (12c/24t) is $352 on Amazon - but it frequently drops to $299. I picked one up a month ago with the asrock x399m for under $600. Or you could wait and pay $500 for the 3900x by itself. I figured grab the 1920x now and get whatever the...

  8. bobzdar replied to the thread what happened to the 3850X.

    And WAY more power delivery when the inevitable zen2 refresh comes. Even the matx x399m can push a 2990wx to 4.1 with active vrm cooling - meaning it can push 400-500w. I'm just hoping they release a 16c version, tr has traditionally had higher...

    Horses for courses. If you need GPU acceleration or its the difference between processing in the field and processing when you get home and potentially finding out too late that you need more footage or capture, and the conditions no longer...

  10. bobzdar replied to the thread Cost Being Equal - Threadripper 1950X or Ryzen 7 3700X?.

    Unless you do something that is single core limited, the 1950x wil be much faster. I went 1920x at $299, it wasn't worth waiting 3 months and paying more for higher single core speeds if I waited for the 3900x, and tr4 will get an update to...

    Having both, the big laptop is way more convenient. No carrying a keyboard and mouse around, no finding a monitor or tv etc. Just need a plug and wifi and you're good.
