    Has AMD passed Intel or just pulled even or still slightly behind

    Stop mixing IPC and other metrics. It's all about latency to memory and core to core. Intel has better Latency with their Ringbus cpu's, Mesh has Worse. Meaning HCC chips like 7900x, 10900x, 10980xe etc have worse latency than their Coffee lake and even zen2. Amd beats intel in IPC across the...

    Intel Core i9 Cascade Lake-X thread

    Broadly speaking M2 is generally through chipset and at minimum 2 first are through chipset for first gen x299 due to Kabylake-X if they have 3 they may use cpu lanes and be non KBL-X exclusive. The m2's through chipset is a X299 specification On second gen motherboards we might assume this is...

    Intel Core i9 Cascade Lake-X thread

    absolutely not. unless you use AVX512 they will be slower than zen2, a 12 core zen2 will beat a higher clocked 14 core. Only arguments in My book is. X299 boards aren't that pricey. quite a lot of pci-e lanes (3.0 though) 4 channel memory for memory capacity. Avx512. My arguments against...

    Ryzen 3950X disappointment

    what's funny is that zen2 3800x matches coffee's 5ghz allcore 9900K in most cases, so you're getting 5ghz allcore intel performance from these and in games within short distance. appearantly the gap is gonna become somewhat smaller soon with new microcode (No miracles!) but it's already...

    YT: Jim Keller: Moore’s Law is Not Dead

    at amd he couldn't do more interesting stuff. he's designed some risc based cpu's there too which have not seen the light so amd could just BAM Arm chip out. So he probably left cause he couldn't picture what was required a decade ahead in time and don't blame him, but Zen is definitely not...

    Another Intel vulnerability!

    many doesn't.. no. Meltdown, foreshadow, spectre etc require code to run on the machine. websites can do that :) This one requires network access, not exactly physical :)

    Steam Library Beta Coming Sept 17th

    the UI is .. whatever, as long as the list on the left hand side is there I'm happy. If they remove it and create big ass images for us with 400 games library I'll be angry as hell :P !

    How long have you used your power supply?

    HX750, soon 11 years. 24/7, not a day without it powered on. Used hard for 10 years until I replaced it last year and gave my server it.

    Intel 18 core: disappointing early indications.

    Not really. they have half the write performance but per chiplet there is no difference. Read is same, you read more than write so it's a non issue, I was worried of this but there is only one place where you see it and that's in Aida64 and memory benchmarks which show total throughput. If you...

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    WHEA bug might be your issue, AGESA should fix it (Fps tanking) even at 4Ghz a 3700x should be killing 4790K in singlethread performance even at 4.8Ghz easily, if something is very latency sensetive it's different story but we see that is very rare in pretty much every test. So I'd...

    X570 mATX board availability?

    I have this, the vrm will need airflow with 3900X if pbo, but other than that I quite like it. Either have had more effecient vrm or better heatsink would go a long way.

    Paper Launch for AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

    I'm in europe, it's not impossible.... Know of many who's ordered even two weeks ago and got it from caseking already. AMD said in earnings call they sell 3.5 X as much as the "not paper launch" zen+ so I guess demand is up there.

    9900k or 3800x

    My 2 cent. Amd has better I/O, better multithread, security. At a cost of ever so slight reduction in singlethread. and higher latency. - This is masked 96% by huge L3 cache. I find the 9900K difficult to recommend as it's pricey for "little", the platform sucks in comparison with I/O etc, the...

    Same issue, I get 80mb/sec for file transfers over 10gbit. get 1100mb/sec ~ in linux to the same share. On my windows 7 VM I get 600-700 mb/sec, to my win 10VM fully updated I get 80mb sec... why??

    Confused and potential problems with 3900x overclocking and behavior

    don't get hung up on the boost, it's so hard to measure what matters is the performance. Do you get 3000 CB15 in multicore, 510+ in single ? PBO disabled, PB2 enabled no xmp 2133 mhz should be there.

    Your thoughts on upgrading to a 2080ti from a 1080ti

    Finally a 3800X review

    I'd do a different take. It's same ballpark but I chose to blame latency for most of it. Latencies, every industry see higher latencies as bandwidth and capability increase, may that be internet, the playing a song on a modern device, display standards like DVI, DP, Hdmi vs good ol d-sub.. even...

    Do you have to use another backplate than the original amd ? I've always used it and throw whatever comes with the cooler away o.0 Also access to the rear is quite standard too as you said :)

    Cat 7 or Cat 8 ethernet ?

    50 feet is apparently 15 meters. My 25 meter cat 5e link disagree cause it runs 10gbit without issues :) That just strengthen the claim that cat 5e is underrated, but if I'd lay cables I'd get cat6-8 where price being the factor for choosing. if cat 5e is in walls already I'd try before swapping.

    I looked into them. They're nearly identical but there is a big difference to me... Amd's just works, enable it and done, freestyle is not. It's not overly aggressive nor too soft to not show any difference, doesn't generate artifact, ignores mostly what should be ignored. In the end, it's not...

    Who's planning to buy 5700(?) GPU

    If I can manage to stack up to 40% rebate I might go nuts with a XT on water and see if I can push 2200 mhz. Hopefully we get a 5800 or so before november when my rebates run out - got a shit ton of rebate points for my etailer because of zen2 purchases.
