Behold, my latest creation

>> No.76382079

Are the figures directly comparable?

>> No.76382087

Well, for one, intel tends to have more advanced instruction sets, like tsx, which are usually good for emulation. And I thought they usually had better single core performance, and that is also most important with emulation. I don't think it's that clear cut.

Thanks for the tip.

Anyway, does anybody know what the cheapest chipset mobos for 10th gen intel are? The ones we got here, at least for now, are really expensive.

cpus are boring until ddr5 platforms, becuase if you want high hz gaymin you go intel but then you get cucked outta pcie4 (until 11th gen ok) and if you go ayymd you lose 30% cpu limited perf

Wtf is it with this cancerous rgb control software? I had no idea the whole thing was such a humongous clusterfuck, and that's an understatement, that I have to wonder how anyone manages with it at all.
The most egregious of the lot also happens to have the most comprehensive system. What a joke.

$999 for something 40% faster than the 2080Ti sounds ok to me if brainlets are still paying $1500 for those. That's nearly 2x the performance per dollar.
And if people pay $1000 more for the 5-10% faster RTX Titan, that's their prerogative.

Just as long as the 6700 (presumably PS5 equivalent) is still $350 or less.

2023 will be the point it is actually worth buying for consumer desktops.

I've never had a motherboard with M.2. I was hoping to be able to run 2 NVMe drives. Most motherboards only seem to have 1 4x M.2.

Forgot to mention. I had a secondhand Asus Xonar DG in the build, and it fried the slot after about a year. That may or may not have spread to the processor, but it absolutely demolished the motherboard. The closed loop cooler I was using on my i9 clouded over, and removal of the heatsink yielded the same strong burning smell I got from the sound card except with no charring.

This is my middle of the road boring ass budget gaming build.

>Also, liquid cooling is objectively better at lowering the temperature. If you don't understand why, I can explain.
Practically every resource I've seen and the AIOs I've tried over the past 15 years has shown otherwise, so yeah explain

Rocket Lake (11th gen) leaks look bad so far. Supposedly up to a 20% IPC increase, but clock speeds are lower, and IPC doesn't actually look increased as much as Intel claimed.
So it's not going to be until 12th gen Alder Lake before Intel might compete.
Also Ryzen 5000 series is early 2021, not late 2020. Alder Lake is probably around the same.

>> No.76389840

you meant early 2022 not late 2021?

>> No.76389841

I'm pretty sure *60/*600 and *50/*500 are not coming until Q1 next year.

> plus cant wait for cyberbunk.
Don't you really want to wait for the RX 6600 or 3060 so you can play it with raytracing anyway?

so just get Ryzen 4000 series and ride that for 5+ years

Who gives a fuck about ray tracing?

I saw the first gen ryzen aged so badly after just 3 years, I hope it won't be the case with the 4000 series

Newest vulnerability was published literally last week. They're better than they were, but that's not saying much.

>he won't have ray tracing in his Keanu Reeves sex scenes
lol ok

... it didn't age badly. zen2 was just such a huge improvement.
Holy fuck your perspective is retarded. You think progress equates to retroactive regression. You're actually this brainwashed by intcel retards and how they only had 3-5% gains a year for 6 years that you think a company doing massive improvements every 1.5-3 years is bad now, and it makes you think you should just never upgrade because there will always be something better when before with Intel ruling there never was?

Wait for motherboard supply to stabilize. Now isn't a good time to upgrade when your current CPU is decent.

>> No.76389991

falling for the letter meme

>> No.76389997

Well, X570 availability at least was never really a problem where I live.
Might just forgo a CPU upgrade just yet, though, and still eventually buy a motherboard upgrade for a future CPU upgrade.

This model worth the money?

>> No.76390064

>worth it
are you insane? Why would that be worth it for a 2 year old GPU that's supposed to be $280, with a new much better generation of GPUs coming in mere months?
How have you done so little research to even think that's a question worth asking?

idk i don't like Gigabyte.
Get the one that has the features which fits your needs.

>will need a new board to upgrade to zen4
Sure. But it should last until the next console generation in 7 years.

I mean if it lasts atleast 5 years just like my 6700 did in the past 5 years then I'm more than happy desu.

I'm searching for a new case for my home server. I want to cool my 2200g passively, I need at least room for 2 3.5" HDD and it should also be quiet. Any recommendations?

what do you think of pic related? I put a 2070s as a placeholder for the new 3070x. this is the maximum budget I have at the moment, considering that I also have a shitty 220B4LPYCB as my monitor since my actual monitor died this year and I'm waiting to find a cheap IPS 4k one.

Is it dangerous not to replace my water cooler? it's an all-in-one i100 Corsair liquid cooler that came with a pre-built PC that I bought from 2012 and I've been using it on my other builds ever since.

>> No.76390122

because I'm not little busy bee googler and dont want to get hung up on tech and specs,price,driver support and everything else, I just want to pay and be on my marry way. the last time I did this was in summer 2015 for that POS r9 390 which I had to weasel to get it at $280 but even with all that research I did it didnt matter, I should have just listened to some /g/ fag.

>> No.76390174

I kind of do want RGB for a meme, and was looking at getting the P300A since it has the features I want and is inexpensive.
They also have a version that's $30 (AUD) more expensive that has the 2 front fans as well as the pre-included rear fan, all 3 of which are RGB.
I know "worth" is subjective, but would you anons say it's dumb to pay the extra $30 AUD for 2 extra pre-included fans? Cheapest RGB fan from this same website (trying to cut down on postage cost) is $20 each.

How important actually is the VRM heatsink on a B550 board?
I'll assume Jigabyte are just overcompensating or something, or overpreparing for a higher power draw CPU?
Like, no other board that I'm seeing have proper finned heatsinks, just the big aluminium chunk...
It makes me want to buy a 3900x instead of the 3700x that I was originally looking at getting

>> No.76390319

5700 works on PCIe3, dummy.
Maybe though it's not that big of an upgrade over the 290 outside of power consumption.

new CPUs won't be higher power draw.

make a NAS.

Typically on a consumer mobo the VRM section is overbuilt because it's expected to get zero airflow. I wouldn't run a 3700X on a 3-phase 50A like the B450 Pro4 but, by the same token, 14-phase 70A like on the B550 Steel Legend is probably enough for an overclocked 3990X.
