How many hours to go before nda lifted? cheers!
two more hours, bro
Damn!....more popcorn needed.
Imagine if HH got the bios update early this morning
I imagine HH&team having a very stressful weekend.
HH, no need to hurry, we all know that you'll deliver the best review.
I am sure that we can do with one at the time.
3pm CEST or what time is it? Looking forward to Hilbert's reviews and a ton of videos by Tom Logan!
low resolutions may have different driver and rendering path optimisations. 1080p is the most common resolution today so it is a perfectly reasonable choice.
You gave me only bla, bla argument. Why i should replace my 9900k for something from AMD? Can i get better money for performance from AMD yeah? Can i get something better for gaming from AMD, so far i see no.. Is Intel bad company, of course, are AMD products better in every way, no!
And there are some AMD specific problems (i dont care too much about that, there are probably more of them, if you will dig you will find more):
- i dont thing that AMD boards have same maturity levels as intel chipset
- AMD hyperthreading equivalent is now fixed? So far i see results with old gen, it sucks.. for some apps it was slower than without it, with Intel it justs works and give me 10-20% of performance
- would be IOMM groups now fixed to proper KVM support? Vendel has some video about it, i want to use Unraid without issues..
- what about Dosbox performance its still much slower than on Intel, because nobody will optimalize it for Ryzen?
- RPC3 and other emulators are still much slower and problematic with AMD cpus..
- with Z370 /Z390.. i can still run XP and Win7 fine, for some retro stuff, AMD is supporting only Win 10, yes i know virtualization - but there not good 3D XP virtualization drivers for Win XP, it suck with Vmware, Virtualbox and QEMU, For AMD APus there is only Win10 videocard driver, Win7 are still fine for office, so i had to upgrade it, only because AMD.
- they are promising better RAM speed compatibility, but who know..
- i bough Ryzen G2200 for my mother office machine / nephews visit gaming rig.. WIn10 are fine, but Linux experience still sucks, videocard its still not properly supported by vanilla Linux Mint, i took a half a year to fix G2400 and there is not much care about G2200..
- real power consumation is bigger than with Intel TDP equivalent, so more noise
720p comparison with much stronger GPU from reputable site shows smaller difference than this YT video does on 1080p / 1440p.
So you expect that nVidia did some special driver "optimization" for 720p just to make AMD's CPUs look better than they actually are on resolutions that people use?
I think you are mistaken.
I except that games rendering paths and drivers may behave different at low resolutions (eg: tiling screen computation are usually related to screen resolution, which means a high number of tiles in high resolution may scale better in a high threaded environment than lower resolution if those computation are done by the CPU.... ). If you want IPC benchmarks then go to optimised synthetic benchmarks (and even on those, a 12-core or a 16-core Intel or AMD CPU may not scale, faking IPC performance).
But again, this is a video, so like any other video there is additional overhead due screen capture, faking results, this is why I am not a fan of video reviews and video benchmarks at all.
Pretty sure 3700X will be the chip for me.
For those that are well-versed what results from these benchmarks should I be looking at that would be relevant to programs such as Photoshop/Lightroom?
That person did not show any proof of capture on either configuration. Nor does it even show fps in real time. Those footages may have as well be stolen from other YT videos.
Considering rate at which this person produces videos, best case scenario looks like that vidoes in background are just for show and values are taken from some tech site.
But they can as well be completely made up.
...we'll know in 50min
I hope they've got their launch codes ready. Missile away!
Only thing I care about with the reviews are OC results and Memory compatibility. I’m more interested to see the Navi results.
Cant wait to read HH review.
Got my 3700x on order from Newegg
Large( £200!!) Threadripper price drops from scan.co.uk...
"The largest price decrease, as noted on Scan UK, is shown with AMD's 12-core Threadripper 2920X, which has dropped in price from £569 to £369, a £200 price decrease."
