    Enthusiast forums are for sharing information, making something better, looking for help, and solving things together.
    I was having the same issue as another member and explained what I saw, like enthusiasts' would.

    Its a place to elevate and help, not a personal stomping ground to tear down other people and their questions.


    Ah, your reputation for your attitude in this forum is well deserved.

    Also my machine is used for a dissertation, and since its mine, I can also play games on it all I want, that has nothing to do with you. Your comments are made at a personal level and you lack any background knowledge of what is or isn't its use.

    Lastly
    you are out of place and your comments are unwarranted.

    THX, its main purpose is for a dissertation on algorithms in aiding in a dedicated archive with training data. However, I have a few games on it and I do enjoy that aspect.

    People that care about reputations are pathetic and only exist to worry about what others think and plactate those others at the expense of themselves.

    Your issues are caused by building a machine completely unfit for the tasks you report issues about and not being "Enthusiast" enough to realize it.

    "Fit for Purpose" is a thing, learn it. live it.

    Get a clue, Scalable Xeons are not for gaming and nobody from microsoft, nvidia or amd will investigate your misuse.

    Still... I'd love to see how that would run with the latest Flight Simulator. Or games that require crazy CPU power with lots of AI activity on the screen such as Cities: Skylines.

    That trully is a crazy setup let alone all that SSD storage. :D

    Heck, he could even render 3D models/scenes/videos and play games at the same time.

    It wouldn't be any better than a 10900k with a single 3090 (and likely to be worse), the clock speed dives significantly beyond single core loads on those xeon scalables to keep them within the tdp budget and thermals under control.
    theres no sli support for dx11 / 9 / etc stuff on ampere and the game has very little scaling on cpu cores.

    Multisocket systems using NUMA are horrible for thread and memory pinning

    Make no mistake, the system is high spec, but its not an Enthusiast machine intended for Enthusiast usage and if you don't live and breathe windows internals its probably not even configured properly for the tasks it is being used for.

    A system like that I would imagine would benefit more on the Quadro family rather than two 3090s. It looks more geared towards, scientific stuff, 3DMAX/CAD/Maya etc, heavy video stuff like some of the movie industry would use.

    Second time in a week I've had to say this.

    People can do whatever they want with their hardware.

    Yes they can.

    And they can also be told the issues they are having are their own doing.
    It wouldn't be an "Enthusiast" forum if legitimate criticism and pointing out that a machine is completely outside its use-case isn't permitted just because it made them feel bad,
    as enthusiasts we should be spreading information, knowledge and that includes bringing up the fact NUMA has issues across many applications (and games).

    This isn't the first time Venturi has had performance issues on his Xeon Scalable system and one of those times he was even told clearly that his issues are unlikely to be looked into by Nvidia.

    Totally off topic, but... A C64 is all a person needs for their dissertation on algorithms. ;)

    Also off topic, but I actually did my dissertation on laser deposition of fractal surface coatings on an Atari Mega ST...

    Its great you pass on information but it could be presented a whole lot better sometimes.
    I dont mean bad saying this, but feel it needs saying.
    You have helped me on a number of occasions that have proven very useful. You are valued.
    Lets keep it nice though please, there are times it doesnt read well.

    Still have to disable MPO with latest KB or I will get flickering in chrome and VLC. Can I just run like this? Will I have any performance issues?

    I believe you're missing the Astyanax's point...

    Agree.

    @Astyanax

    I once told you about being right gracefully.
    It's fine to tell someone their issue is out of support's scope, not to start telling them they don't have a clue (venturi has clearly stated that rig is mainly not for gaming).

    Care about reputation or not, manners are manners and attitude is part of expertise.

    The thing is, his rig is not even suited for the tasks he built it for in the first place, so no he really did build a machine with very little clue on what he was doing and trying to use it as a general purpose setup is just the icing on the cake.

    For his workflow, Tesla or ML are the suitable parts, Nvidia optimizes the computational processing of Geforce for gaming allowing for less strictness in their cuda recompiler,

    Even if so it's his prerogative to use his hardware as he sees fit.
    Perhaps Geforce cards are enough for him and he wants to game as well.

    But seeing we have nearly one page worth of posts about one person's build I think let's return to business as usual.

    Its not that i don't understand your point, filtering is just exhausting for me (so i save it for customers)
    I'm not out to just insult and harass with the way i put things and all i mean to say by much of it is that he either doesn't know enough about his system to understand why these problems arise, or is being willfully obtuse and ignoring those problems whilst being fully aware of them, the latter is worse than the former. :confused:

    And thus revokes his right to support.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not in any disagreeance on that, lets move onto a next page.
