I´m very interested in the Gigabyte am4 boards this time around.
I’m really currious to see what the 16 phase infineon XDPE132G5C pwm,
on the X570 Master can do. :slight_smile:

pretty swanky seeing that pwm used on consumor grade boards.

Absolutely serious, me too.

The Linksys WRT54G is so deeply a part of how I identify “enthusiast routers”, I need it to have tenticles or spider legs to take it seriously.

Didn’t Antec make a case that allowes to put a 120mm fan behind the mainboard to prevent that odd ball Gigabyte board from burning?
No thanks on Gigabyte.

Which Gigabyte board do you mean?

The GA X79 UD7 and the Antec 302 has the fan mount behind the CPU socket:

Just on the IPC gains (re: end of last thread). I find it interesting that for a while people have been saying that all of the low hanging fruit for IPC has been picked.

For AMD to get +15% from Zen1 to Zen2 after getting the +50% or whatever over bulldozer… and NOT be vulnerable to RIDL/Meltdown/Zombieload/etc. due to performance “hacks” that intel have been doing, perhaps indicates that maybe intel have been sitting on arse. AMD with way smaller budget are showing them up.

I would have been happy with 4 more cores for same price at 10% higher clocks with zen2, but the IPC gains are gravy…

A yeah the X79 UD7 wasn´t their best board ever indeed.
Still a great idea from Antec actually.

Eh was hoping for more than just that

Yo @wendell, looks like the X570 Taichi will support Thunderbolt AIC cards. https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570%20Taichi/#Specification

No 10gbe fail

The 3900x for $499 is crazy. My will is being tested. Temptation is too strong.
