The majority of the time, these won't be running that hot or consuming that much power (unless an overclocker decides to run them at turbo speeds relentlessly always)
Is that under full load or gaming?
I also have the d15 and have had it since the 4770k, the minute the cpu power hits 175-180w it starts to run out of steam. Yes, it has been fine for everything up to the present, but power budgets have gone up and up… a good modern aio is also quieter..
Now that I actually have time to reply properly..
Games and software aren’t coded for “cores” they are coded for threads. Threads can be time critical(Main game loop for example) or not time critical (sound loop for example).
If you have a processor core and you run a non time critical and a...
Based on that, if you can afford it, I would suggest a similar setup to SHAB rather than going AMD.
It'll boot quicker
It'll be able to handle a lot more memory (I'd probably start at 64gig and consider double that, with what you're talking about)
It's a more stable platform...
Your requirements aren’t clear so I am not going to recommend anything yet.
In terms of actual hours over a normal 1-2 week period of using a computer, what do you actually do?
I use my pc for approximately 30 hours a week
Of that 30 hours
Most of the time (20 hours) the...
My understanding of thread director comes from a number of sources, but the info is most easily understood from here: https://www.anandtech.com/show/16881/a-deep-dive-into-intels-alder-lake-microarchitectures/2
...it continues on
What this means is that without the SMT threads, it will...
You’re welcome, for reference a lot of graphics cards use about 280-350w under load. Substantially more than a processor when gaming.
One other point.. all of the CPUs you listed come with integrated graphics and video encoding, even AV1 encoding. There is nothing stopping you using this while...
To answer what I know:
1. Hynix M-Die seems to be the pick for ram at the moment
2. If ram timings/speed are the thing that is going to make or break the build, there's a problem
3. I run a 13600k w/ DDR4 , the first boot after changing a memory clock takes time, but so long as you have XMP...
I have spent a fair bit of time researching this.
If you need to save every single watt, intel is better at idle, provided you enable core parking, sleep states etc etc this isn’t an inconsiderable amount of effort but with a bit of knowledge, quick cpu (software) can get you there.
"Usually, mechanical switches have a lifespan ranging up to 50-80 million keystrokes, with Cherry MX switches offering a guarantee of 100 million keystrokes" - optical will probably be double this, depending on how long it is left on as the optics are on constantly.. but realistically, you'll be...
Oh wow.. this thread is real interesting.
1gbit wired, symmetrical is more than enough for a home network, heck 1gbps backplane is probably enough for the majority of home users
For the home user, even 100mbps wired networks will be fast enough for gaming (and streaming)
Mint is exceptionally nice as an OS. Caveat is that you know a bit about linux, if you don't it's a bit of a learning curve.
Linux on the desktop is still very much a "Free costs time, linux costs what your time is worth to learn it"
It’s more that I think you should get what you pay for. Eg if I buy an intel KF model processor, I expect that I won’t be able to use the graphics module on the processor, but will be able to overclock it.
I expect a discount cause I can’t use the graphics.
If I buy a processor that has...
I don’t know how much politics and the position of the companies factors into your buying equation.
Intel is slowly moving to a pay for features model.
I believe this is bad for pc builders, and vote with my dollars...
I think you got the main ones. Avx512 is present on Ryzen. More “full fat” cores on Ryzen too.
Ryzen will probably perform better for 3d modelling and video work than the intel equivalent, due to AVX512, more cores, and the architecture
Frankly, I'm done with intel at the moment. I have a i9-9900K but I vote with my money, I don't agree with intel's segmentation of the server market. So my next upgrade will be AMD.
Think carefully about which company you support.
I bought from a friend who did mine with it, but the history of the card is that even though he mined, he kept temperatures down (by undervolting) and dust out, it was babied. He even changed the thermal pads on the memory to take care of it (and I trust him).
Per my sig, it is the gigabyte...
