    Anyone tried 2990WX with Windows 7 x64?

    From AMD: *OS Support Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition RHEL x86 64-Bit Ubuntu x86 64-Bit *Operating System (OS) support will vary by manufacturer. I have a 2990wx running Ubuntu. I could test Windows 7 for you, but you need to give me a good reason. What is the use case for Windows 7?

    Do you mind if I ask why anyone would run a 2990wx using windows 7?

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    I went ahead and got one. Looking pretty solid on my linux gpu passthrough config (within 5% of native from what I can tell).

    Radeon VII Gets Pro Driver Support

    Right now GPU Passthrough is a bit easier (or at least it feels that way). We're getting damn close, though!

    Radeon VII Gets Pro Driver Support

    I'm running Ubuntu as my primary OS with a windows VM for gaming / webex. We will see how this does. Super excited about sr-iov possibilities.

    Four days after launch, AMD's Radeon VII is still not widely available

    I went ahead and bought one this afternoon from AMD. Although, I am waiting for the final order details and shipping notice still. Anyone have any idea how fast/slow AMD is at processing orders? (email said up to 48 hours to process. oof.)

    Sounds like it will have enterprise virtualization / sr-iov... Curious to hear what your rep says.

    Just pulled the trigger for this reason. If I don't like it I probably still get a +ROI anyway.

    MSI RTX 2070 $444.99

    Should be for this link: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814137363 It's a good deal if we didn't have to worry about the defective RTX problem. I still think there is something majorly wrong with RTX cards. I was going to bite on this, but I am going to pass this gen...

    Radeon VII: Buy first, read reviews later

    Yeah same thoughts on my end. I really, really wanted this card to be amazing but it is disappointing right now. Apparently the media drivers were a disaster as well. Oof.

    [H]ard doing a Radeon 7 review?

    I hope someone can run this in GPU passthrough on a VM to see if they fixed the Vega reset bug. I doubt Kyle has time, but it would be nice to know...

    Malfunctioning Networking Card Led to Huge CenturyLink Outage

    From what I understand, a lot of the ISPs use their own home grown monitoring solutions. Sounds like a major SRE team fail.

    Looking for a bare minimum GPU for Ubuntu

    Check out the used market. I got a used 1050ti for $100 and it is smooth as butter on my Ubuntu workstation. They might even be going for sub $100 now.

    Current 43" 4K options?

    So far I have had no issues (bought it at the end of June) and I use it 8+ hours a day. I've used both DP and HDMI inputs. Not a bad deal for the $290 I paid. Obviously if you look at refurb reviews you can see it is sometimes a crap shoot, but for the price you can't really complain.

    This is what not buying an RTX 2070 can do

    I'm enjoying my new workstation 2990wx build. Using my old GTX 980 just fine. Woo boy!

    Anyone tried 2990WX with Windows 7 x64?

    For giggles I threw in my old windows 8.1 SSD on my 2990wx, and it bawed at me about not being supported.

    Anyone order Threadripper 2 yet? User feedback is highly valuable.

    yeah der8auer's youtube video on overclocking the 2990wx seemed to suggest a 3.7-3.8ghz across all cores is the sweet spot for stability. Also from Kyle's review, power draw becomes insane when you push towards 4ghz. If I can keep it under 80c (ideally under 75c) at full prime95 load I think I'd...

    Started testing my OC this weekend on my water cooled 2990wx. Stable so far at 3.6ghz. Going to push higher as I have some thermal overhead.

    Cryptocurrency's Big Winner & Big Loser

    Which is why we have juries who assign percent blame (in most states). I'd say its mostly a company's fault for serving scalding hot coffee. If the coffee were at normal temperatures, what would have been the result of the spill? Probably not nearly as severe. Furthermore, I think, given that...

    Cryptocurrency's Big Winner & Big Loser

    I would bet that most people don't even know what 2fa is, let alone that it is not secure. Then you figure companies like AT&T are still offering it giving the illusion of security.

    It isn't reasonable for consumers to have expert knowledge of all of the exploits for cell phones.

    If you don't mind, when and from where did you order your 2990wx? Also, care to specify whats up with MSI boards (was looking at them vs Gigabyte)?

    Anyone order Threadripper 2 yet? User feedback is highly valuable.

    I considered driving 3 hours to the nearest microcenter to get one, but decided to just order it from Amazon. It's only $1800 and it sounds like you need all the threads you can get! Do it!

    Anyone order Threadripper 2 yet? User feedback is highly valuable.

    That might be true in regards to more people using it with Windows Server or *nix, but it seems like they marketed this to the creative users who are using applications that run (from what I can tell) best on Windows. /shrug

    GPU Passthrough and Performance

    +1 Doing the same thing when I get my 2990xw. It seems like all of the research I have done so far suggests up to 95% performance in a VM with GPU passthrough. Also, check out the looking glass project. If you don't mind a minimal amount of latency you can run the VM in windowed mode on your...
