    Will Zen 4 be the real deal and a worthy upgrade from Zen 3

    Overall power use of newer puter gen CPU along with a new gen PGU seems problematic.

    I am starting to do research on using an RK3588 based SBC for D.C. and other uses. Example here: I have an Odroid N2, and a N2+ that work well and have a fairly decent software...

    Ryzen 9 5950X = $499.00 @ Newegg

    5950x is starting to look real good. For all core work is it much better than a 3950x?
