I'm lead DevSecOps and SRE for an Amazon Partner. Was a VMware and Xen architect before that. Wrangled bare metal before that.
So I've seen waves come and go, and I'm not jumping in whatever the latest is. There will always be use cases to address appropriately.
Problem is that I've seen...
Cloud costs are directly in proportion to technical debt.
If I have a million invocations a month with short run functions, then I don't need to deploy code onto multiple servers or instances in and around application perimeters. Especially for triggered events or essential crud functions...
Your pt about server gear longevity is important here bc e3 and e5 chipsets run forever as either desktop workstations or dept servers.
Something to think about since off license gear will get dumped cheap.
We even got g6 HP rack gear in for experimental use bc we don't care about support...
You will remember the sound of datacenter hardware fired up outside of a datacenter.
Departmental boxes are basically desktops with validated hardware in them that often run in a different performance envelope than 24/7 gear.
What’s always been the case is that minding hardware isn’t much of a...
OP is late to the party.
There is a movement towards serverless for a reason.
If you must learn the minutiae of an underlying OS I’d suggest getting the RHCE book and about anything more resource capable than an x40 thinkpad.
LPIC1 is also an option, but Rhel is the standard.
GCP or AWS would...
Buying a gpu is only a concern when I find a game I really want to play all weekend, to the wire weekday nights, I find myself firing it up for 1 good match before I gotta clock in.
Otherwise it’s nothing that bothers me.
I was irked by the HWU FE thing bc “frames win games” and all that...
What keljian said re: nvme drive and Lancool 2 mesh or P500A
I wouldn't get Meshify C case, it's too tight a layout with respects to gpu length so you'll end up boxing yourself in.
Larger Meshify is basically R6 sized so air velocity can become a factor.
I took off my clocks bc Call of Duty...
I hate virtualized desktops, I won't work on that side.
We have had to build UIs as key value store pass thru to alleviate application pressure on desktops. Isolating puts and gets annoyed my partner Dev, but once he saw the stacking of latency on your average VDi solution he downshifted to...
Most of us Intel owners know we are on a dead platform within 1-2 cpu releases.
It isn’t much different with Ryzen but those builds have to chase IPC Improvement, I don’t.
Gaming performance is highly dependent on your ingame settings.
I’m cool at 180-220fps 1080p or 1440p 150fps with...
^ if you look to optimize components.
I think understanding when cpu & gpu boost tables apply to your workloads in effort to improve your enjoyment and productivity is a +.
No if the old school 300A/Duron "you're getting lots for nothing" ethic is what you're chasing.
Definitely no if blind...
This is compelling bc testing builds on device farms or doing pre-build device deployment checks has been underutilized.
I’ll point to simple bad cut and pastes on iOS and Android that screwed up audio & networking that should never have made sign off.
You can have a ball in a forensic...
I know a couple mom and pop chains that have gpus. I'm not going buy right now bc I really don't like the rumors of 2021 gpus with more vram.
It's not a need I have to feed right now since Cyberpunk is so broken. Everything else I play I'm at competitive settings.
I have this feeling...
His case can fit a 420
I guess buy both of them if thermal capacity & low noise is important at the get go.
Soft fittings are plentiful used and rebuildable...
Posts like this doesn’t help deter gpu mining in favor of ASICS:
The general public wants to get in on easy $, and reports of value props up notions of foot in the door somehow.
People will Google their way to buying miners first ethereum 2.0 rig or some bs.
They sent me a code for a replacement cable.
No free mouse skates if I jack 1 up.
So no, I wouldn't recommend their products bc their support has jerked me around for 6 months with ample examples of defective cables.
360 you have to check figment if you’re a tubes down stickler.
280 tends to be easier to install however you like.
240 hands down easiest install in the largest cross section of cases.
I’d be focusing on a tubes up or top mount running 8c+ & planning on dumping it at the end of 3 years.
Did you expect a $30 budget cooler to be appropriate compared to the 3700x/3800x included Wraith Prism?
They didn't bother with 5800x.
Assuming your 5800x will boost the same as the existing temp problem threads you look towards high end air or run of the mill aio as a start pt.
This starts to get into the temp range where I'd normally see 8c+ consumer cpus pegged from synthetic benchmarks.
Is AMD trying to close the IPC gap by keeping their cpus pegged on zen3?
OP I'd worry about fsilures when they happen.
Figure an aio goes 3 years, you got your $ out of it.
I'd go 280 or 360, depending on case clearance.
Arctic is all the rage right now.
Maybe look at ML fans on the rad if you can tolerate the vibration at the gaming end of the fan curve or Silent Wings 3 if noticing your pc with a headset on is an issue.
If the OP is adventurous piecing together...
Right, what distro / version / config / did you dick with your kernel / do you know how to allocate resources to the software you are using?
Simple is to run a Pi script with top open and see how many threads it's using.
Less simple is the Phoronic test suite tuned to your build.
I’m not saying Hedt isn’t a capable gaming platform.
I’m saying that component selection for a workstation that doesn’t perform under a persons ideal gaming settings would
Especially when I'm dealing with a commodity resource build for vm host.
I was running an x299 system to model VMware multi...
I'd separate workloads when your resource specs dilute your bullet pts.
Leave the HEDT platform as a standalone and build out a 6c gaming box.
We are starting to see this in AWS, where people are ordering Outposts to feed with datacenter gear.
Old ideas are new again.
I missed the free week when I tried to play it at 10:03am yesterday.
There was something comforting and familiar about sitting on Nuketown and Raid for an hour or 2.
I'm not paying $40 for BO1 and BO2 nostalgia. The new maps suck, SBMM sucks, Warzone < Blackout.
We may never see $50 Seasonic 750w Gold like we used to.
Cost of materials, scalpers, "desirable" tier gpus slowly needing more capacity than the 650w era.
If the next couple gens can push 3080 equivalent performance into the 2070 wattage area then something else hungry would have replaced it...
Ram speed won't matter for 4k, this is an Intel build.
Dumping an ass load of $ into a gpu matters.
This is an Intel build, your core speeds are independent.
Maybe you should take a breath and figure out what you're doing before you spray a ton of voltage at ram or cpu.
Threshold for thermal...
