    Zen 2 Review Summary

    I think it's AMD redefining HEDT with more emphasis on platform than core count. If somebody needs a CPU with 16 cores but doesn't need quad channel memory, there's now a part for them, with relatively low platform costs (flagship X570 motherboards aside). Just like how Threadripper has (or...

    what happened to the 3850X

    Really? Try not to pity yourself so hard, it's making you write stupid things.

    Very Excited About Upcoming 7nm Ryzen, but...

    I've been having trouble finding the link, but over on r/AMD, somebody posted a tweet from CanardPC leaking (or whatever) a special edition 5.0ghz all core boost 8-core. I think it was a 20th anniversary Athlon or some such, to be released next year. A quick wiki check shows the Athlon was...

    Engadget: Apple finally reveals the new Mac Pro

    Can you power a standard GPU though? From Apple's site, the extra slot is rated for 475 watts, and I don't see any standard power connectors.

    Very Excited About Upcoming 7nm Ryzen, but...

    Every single tech youtuber (that I've seen) at computex has claimed that there's a 16-core being unofficially demoed. If it's such an open secret, it's probably also just about ready for launch. Dunno exactly what they're waiting for; could be motherboards, could be yields, could be they're...

    From the Intel side...

    I mean, we already know that Intel is superior because in December they'll be selling a few ultra-binned 9900ksf(?) at 5ghz. You don't need an internet strongman to tell you that!

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    My X370 Taichi has just been begging for a more power-hungry chip than my 1600, and that 12-core looks like just the ticket. $499 is a bit rich for me ATM, so I'll give it a few months to save up some dough, and hope that prices drop a bit. Also want to see what memory speeds are like; what...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    200% this is a mentally ill person who was into or had a job involving computers 15 years ago. Participating in this thread is the text version of talking to someone with schizophrenia. Entertaining as hell, though.

    AdoredTV reflection (AMD benchmarks) on Zen2

    Have you hung around this, or any other, tech forum, around the time of a major product launch? Even alleged 'enthusiasts' seem to need a healthy dose of the "rather obvious".

    Corsair SF450 (2018) 450W SFX Power Supply Review @ [H]

    Nothing against Seasonic, but they don't even make a PSU at this size and power level. The Corsair SFX series seem to be about the best SFX units available (judging from reviews here and Silverstone has more powerful units, but IIRC they're mostly SFX-L, and don't perform quite...

    What do you look for in a gaming mouse?

    The G603 and G305 might work. They're pretty plain, but the sensor is great and they have amazing battery life (my 305 got ~3 months out of one AA battery). They use AA batteries, which i like because I can use my pile of rechargeables, but you can use lithium batteries for lighter weight.

    Noctua AMD Threadripper Air Cooler Roundup @ [H]

    Maybe they figured that most people who needed significantly better cooling than the -U14S would probably go for water anyway? Who knows, but I bet they'll do it eventually, since it seems that Threadripper is going to be around a while. Would also be interesting to see what the upper...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    It's a bit of an odd config, but the trackball is more useful than it looks- there's another set of buttons on the top edge, right where my fingers rest when my thumb is on the trackball. Also, the smaller button works as a sort of 'hold button' for the one next to it, so you don't have to keep...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Unicomp Classic Trackball with Dvorak layout, for gaming I switch to a cheapo blue switch Geezer brand or black switch Drevo Tyrfing (setting up key layout for Dvorak in every game is a PITA). Logitech G305 mouse, turns out that a wireless mouse can be really awesome! Love it.

    Did the crazy, out with Titan Xp, in with Vega 64 Liquid...

    That is a silly desire, but I'm gonna give it a shot! Gotta rationalize this card somehow... (besides mining of course)
