  1. Legendary Gamer liked IdiotInCharge's post in the thread Julian Assange Arrested.

    You have entirely ignored the point. These people dumped information. While some of it could construe actions that may be considered to be criminal, other parts absolutely cost the lives of people unrelated to the overall point that they were...

    Dreaming of sugarplums and a Ryzen 7 3700X.

    Yes but you make it out like it's a massive problem when it's not for most users here - the latency is as low or lower than intel where it counts in under 8 threads. This is the same discussion as the 16 core Zen thread but reversed. It has more...

  4. Legendary Gamer liked M76's post in the thread AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast.

    Memory bandwidth always had negligible impact on most real world applications so I wouldn't be worried about that. The biggest non-upgrade one can do is upgrading their memory bandwidth.

  5. Legendary Gamer liked kirbyrj's post in the thread New AMD Navi RX 3080 "XT"- "Pro" / 3070 Info.

    The only problem is that the Vega products never were available at a price point lower than the comparable Nvidia products until recently. Whether or not that's what AMD intended is another story.

  6. Legendary Gamer liked Snowdog's post in the thread New AMD Navi RX 3080 "XT"- "Pro" / 3070 Info.

    Corporations exist to maximize profits, not to give the world what it waiting for. AMD included. Look at Launch pricing of RX 480, RX 580, RX 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radeon VII. All were essentially NVidia performance levels, with NVidia...

  7. Legendary Gamer replied to the thread AMD X570 Chipset Blockdiagram Surfaces - Specs - PCIe 4.0 All The Way!.

    I had heard something about signaling issues, but I'm way out of my league on that one. What I do know is that the new 500 series chipsets were cooking the motherboards and they had to apply massive heatsinks and active cooling. Makes me...

  8. Legendary Gamer liked DanNeely's post in the thread AMD X570 Chipset Blockdiagram Surfaces - Specs - PCIe 4.0 All The Way!.

    It's probably going to be slightly worse than that. Due to shorter maximum signal lengths, it will probably only be the top x16 slot that can support PCIe4. Even if the second one is wired to the CPU it will be far enough away that to be in...

  9. Legendary Gamer liked Zarathustra[H]'s post in the thread AMD X570 Chipset Blockdiagram Surfaces - Specs - PCIe 4.0 All The Way!.

    My understanding is that you probably get Gen 4 support going to the "direct to CPU" lanes no matter what, but that the links to the chipset Will remain on gen3 on older chipsets. I could be wrong though.

    Interesting shakeup indeed. Of course most 'reviewers' and board shills will only post the old, pre-patch results now. And I'd guess many of the the 'muh windows updates save baby jesus' types won't want the updates all of a sudden..

  12. Legendary Gamer liked defaultluser's post in the thread AMD 64-core EPYC clock speeds leaked - The power of ROME.

    Using the 30% reduction in TDP at the same clocks as Zen+ a a guide, that means 8 cores Zen 2 at the same clocks as 2700x is approximately 80w TDP. That's 120w for 12 cores at the same clocks speeds, or 160w for 16 cores. If you bump it the...

    Not sure if you guys saw this article. I'm certain all the bandwidth isn't there, however, 4.0 is supposedly supported on 3 and 4 series AMD Motherboards. It's up to the individual board manufacturers if they want to support it or not:...

    Why is everyone always talking about m.2 slots? What about 10gig NICs, and other accessories? :p

    Nothing ;) . All of the peripherals need to be PCI-e 4.0 ;)

  18. Legendary Gamer liked Lakados's post in the thread BitDefender Researchers Discover "Terrifying" Security Vulnerability in Intel CPUs.

    We will see a hardware fix when Intel releases a new architecture, in the mean time there is no way to fix the issue at a hardware level for these chips as it seems to be inherently flawed. Software & microcode is about the only way to go about...
