Newegg High capacity 64gb (32x2) 3200mhz DDR4 on sale for $224.99.
(Timings are 16-18-18 which are the best available so far at this capacity)
Best price I've seen for these. Would allow you to store up to 256gb of DDR4 on a threadripper 8 dimm system, 128gb on a mainstream 4 dimm system, or...
I'm a bit out of my depth here, but I remember X99 had unofficial support for RDIMMS. Depends on a case by case basis though. I remember some posts here of users getting some 64gb dimms and I believe even 128gb dimms working on Asrock boards.
I bet there are some boards that do support greater...
Wanted to post one of Asrock's new ITX X570 boards that have been announced. Seems like the perfect fit for some interesting bifurcation builds. (Link)
4 sodimms (ecc support)
Dual 10gbe intel ports
Up to 8 sata 3 ports (via a breakout cable)
X570 chipset w/ pcie 4.0x16 slot (overclockable?)
True and CPU frequency too which makes it hard for apple to apple comparisons.
On another note, I think an interesting use case for such fast DDR4 would be if it were in quad channel on a threadripper setup. That would be some insane read write bandwidth. Wouldn't do much if any good for games...
In this particular case, I believe the decrease in infinity fabric speed (for 5000mhz) is a primary argument for 3200/3600 cl14 having perhaps better latencies on Ryzen 3000
Also, here is a video of a similar gigabyte kit @5000mhz. In the video, Derbauer pits it against such kits and I believe...
I am curious if lowering node size offers either a linear or exponential increase in perfomance or some other metric (such as power consumption, etc..) If it is exponential, I'd imagine even these small node shrinks could offer significant advantages even as we reach the practical limit of what...
I was curious if any others were anticipating Seagate's MACH.2 launch? SSDs may be all the rage, but there's something [H]ard about all those moving parts. (Probably for the same reasons I get excited over old vacuum tube gear).
It sounds as though they are pretty focused on releasing these...
You'll be good. You could try tightening the timings/OCing if you wanted for the RAM, but honestly you'd probably be just as well leaving it at XMP. RAM OCs tend to be a bit more tricky to test for stability. 16-19-19 @3600 is great ram anyway so enjoy
You might look for an A6-9500. It is AM4 compatible and dirt cheap. Only concern being check your motherboard bios if it is supported as I believe some company's started cutting out support for them on newer boards.
Here is a used one shipped for $25. Ebay
Love mine so far. Just what I needed for the games I play. Perfect for turn based strategy games. Probably pretty good for real time strategy as well, but that would take a fine tuned profile to make it work. Been great for Civ6 so far. I can navigate just about as well as I can with a mouse for...
To your original question: I would add this video as I too am curious how they would compare.
It is a Hardware Unboxed gaming comparison of the 9900ks vs 3950X when overclocking RAM speeds and lowering timings. It made a bigger difference than I expected and allowed AMD to really close in on...
Guru3d does IPC comparisons of CPUs locked at 3.5ghz for single core cinebench runs.
There is a marginal difference between the 1800X and 2700X, but a much improved score with the 3800X.
I'm in the same boat with a 7 liter ML09 silverstone case. Its a 2200G HTPC build where the best GPU upgrade is currently a 1650. Hopefully 7nm and beyond brings some better options with some die shrinks
