    music files breaking up sometimes (SSD)

    If you want even better Tube based audio, find some vintage kit, replace the capacitors, OpAmps and Google the model being modified and see what applications might need different Tubes, etc. I have 3 x Bellari RP562’s modified by the guy that Builds amps for famous players, wasn’t too...

    AMD 5650G for me. But not until 2022 when they’re not the latest greatest.

    Make Intel great again? Intel Rocket lake i7-11700 processor review!

    Intel and AMD fighting it out is nice, but Intel is too damn hot, and AMD too many Watts and no APU 5000 yet. Good news is the W480/W 1250P combo is cheap now and has everything I need so maybe I’ll get a 5000 APU sometime in 2022. Wish these guys would just give us a fast bad ass quad @ 65-95...

    I7 10700 build

    Non K CPUs still overclock. No such thing as “locked” unless you believe those telling you that. My old i7 S went from 3.6 to 4GHz with no sweat. Never needed more than 4GHz but it’s been running 24/7/365 for 6 years. I wanted a 10th gen CPU too but the temps are just too high for a 1U...

    Intel Core i9-11900K "Rocket Lake" Boosts Up To 5.30 GHz, Say Rumored Specs

    They’re all choking for plain old desktop chips. I got 3700X and 3 x i7 4790k’s that work fine. But always got enough time to build the best 1U. Even ASRock Rack is behind schedule. I waited 3 months last summer for the 570 board, and it’s a PITA still, BIOS updates are numerous though. cheers

    Intel Core i9-11900K "Rocket Lake" Boosts Up To 5.30 GHz, Say Rumored Specs

    Tiger Lake Desktop please. Otherwise Zen3 5000 desktop w/ APU gets my money you dummies.

    New ryzen 3 boards

    I’m happy with my ASRock X570D4U and 3700X. Small mobile chassis w/ dual 2TB Sabrent M.2’s. 3600 Samsung B Die RAM. Waiting for the 5600X, maybe go with 8 core after seeing the Cezanne 5000’s.

    Department of Justice Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

    Staples and Office Depot were being destroyed by WalMart & Amazon. Eric Holder/Obama said no Merger you greedy capitalistic businesses. Google wanted YouTube, Facebook wanted problem you wealthy authoritarians, just censor our adversaries domestically and fund our campaigns.

    Department of Justice Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

    Google helps control the people of China for it’s wealthy communist leaders. Like it or not their tradecraft is being perfected there in the giant AI Facility. They’re not going anywhere. They buy politicians then protect their investments. Its the American way...

    New four bangers unavailable?

    I so want a fast Quad CPU with lots of cache. That type of design offers the lowest latency as well as fastest recovery from IPC leakage. (Misses) AMD seems to be addressing the 3000’s which crapped out @ 80% especially 12/16 core designs by redesigning CCX and a unified cache. That’s exciting...

    Zen 3 is rumored to be flaunting monumental IPC gains in early testing

    I have 2 x 4790k’s, i7 5775C, i7 8086k and a 3700X. All built for audio. Cache is king on the new Tiger Lake 8 Cores, and Cezanne. I’ll take one of each as long as 4GHz is the base. Sure glad Matisse put Intel on their heels. 8086k was only a small step better than my 4700’s. Matisse too much...

    Did I make a mistake buying the i7-8700?

    I don’t need big overclocks but I always buy the S or non-K COUs and gladly accept the free 400MHz with a pinch of voltage. I’m still running a couple 4790ks and a 4790. Thought by now the non k would be showing signs of aging by higher heat disappation or faster throttling. Nothing. I don’t...

    Specialized Processors are Seemingly Overtaking General Purpose Chips

    I use a general purpose CPU to run 18 x 400MHz DSP Chips From Analog Devices. Only in the last 10 years have I started using the CPU for similar audio chores. I need 50% of 4 Cores @ 4GHz to do what 15% of one ADSP-21369 Chip does. Nice having both to share workloads. If I didn’t have to use...

    Are there any reasons you WOULDN'T buy a high Core Count i9(12c+) discounting Money?

    Like my apps. I need the low latency of a Dual Core but a Quad is what I use. 6 Cores is where latency starts to take its toll in real time usage. This is why I just bought 2 more ASRock Z97m WS/i7 4790k combos and Modded them for Supermicro CSE 500f-441B 1U Chassis. Once I see “new” cores...

    California Officially Becomes First in Nation Mandating Solar Power for New Homes

    Smart as us putting us thousands of the giant turbines in migratory paths. We subsidize them sitting idle during the windy season. German Brown Lignite is the nastiest Coal on Earth.

    Intel Kills off the 10nm Process

    Yes but your explanation of the process enlightened me. Nice to have a place where I can learn without having to research. Something that isn’t of major concern being explained succinctly saves me from reading 50 different lengthy explanations. Cheerz

    Intel Kills off the 10nm Process

    Thanks for explaining. The 7nm I cited that AMD had was a misunderstanding, seems that was a GPU. But isn’t that kind of like prepping for your CPU? Seems logical to develope something like a GPU before going all in? Exciting stuff though. Since Intel made record revenue in Q3 I won’t feel bad...

    Intel Kills off the 10nm Process

    I misunderstood AMDs Presentation obviously. OTOH I’m enjoying the competition AMD has caused. I’m running a small recording facility and building stage worthy 1U PCs. I remember when Tyan Tiger mainboards with Dual Athlon MPs ruled. Glad to have them back. I still have to use the fastest...

    Intel Kills off the 10nm Process

    As the dumbest person in this thread I’m curious about something. If you keep dropping the ball on 10nm, why is Intel acting like 7nm is some sort of relief? Wouldn’t 7nm add more problems. And how is it that AMD can have 7nm already. Did they make Ryzen so different it can leapfrog over Intel?

    Facebook Estimates That Only 30 Million Accounts Compromised by Hackers

    I think they’re just saying they were hacked so they could share data with others who want said data. Power is intoxicating when you know the law is so far behind you. Even if Legislators regulate them, it’s a win win for them. Who could ever survive the regulations as a start up, then try and...

    Tech Corporations to Testify Before the US Senate About Data Privacy Practices

    I’m convinced Silicon Valley Tech folks knew what they were doing long time ago. Surprised thy didn’t cancel Trumps account during the primaries when it was obvious he was going to win.

    WPI Develops Autonomous Fish Hunting Robot

    That’s awesome. We could get about 20,000,000 of them for the flying Asian Carp in the Ohio River Basin. Those suckers fly into your boat. If our hits you in the face going 50mph it’s like Mike Tyson tagging you.

    Sorry, cdabc123, my Wool got caught. Back on topic. Games I’m not sure about. But do you remember the video showing a nuclear explosion with DC as the backdrop? Seriously low quality. I can say with confidence that the Piano in the recording was pre Soundblaster PCI. Cheerz

    Does a multichannel digital to analog converter exist?

    Look at a Behringer FCA1616 for USB also. I use an XITE-1 DSP Rack, an expensive recording studio for PC. Nobody uses them except for film scoring guys or live performers. But any old Soundblaster would accept the ADA8200 @ 44.1/48k or SMUX @ 96k halving the channels. MiniDSP has neat stuff...

    Does a multichannel digital to analog converter exist?

    I’d suggest buying a Behringer ADA8200. 200 bucks. It’s very capable. But turn that into an Audio Interface costing around 2k by sending your unit to Black Lion Audio. Get the Premium modification, or even the Standard mod. Now you’ll have 8 x Analog Ins, TS or XLR as the inputs are multi...

    Intel Rumored to Launch 9th-Generation Processors on October 1st

    Not with apps I use inside of 1U Chassis. More Cores is more latency. I’d take a Dual Core @ 6GHz over an i7 8086k in a heartbeat. From my experience Intel is full of crap on watts of low power aternatives. I had an i7 4770S. They said lower watts and @ 400 MHz slower who could deny that. 15...

    Intel Rumored to Launch 9th-Generation Processors on October 1st

    It’s whats kept me away from AMDs. Intels chips with 95 Watts or less are as high as I want to get. I want AMD or Intel to have a base of 4.5-5GHz and 4 Cores @ 65 Watts. After the Core Wars perhaps.

    Swastikas Will No Longer Automatically be Banned in German Video Games
