    Zen3 or Rocketlake?

    Biggest problem with Intel is the lack of ECC support. If they haven't added it back on the 11th Gen they'll still be losing out on the home lab/server target group.

    Zen3 or Rocketlake?

    The 5800X is the worst value chip. There's a reason why it's been in stock for weeks now at MSRP everywhere. Wait for the 5900X. The price is only $50 more than the 3900X.

Home automation Currently I am running tasks 3-6 on a 2xE5-2670V2 server which was due an upgrade to V3/V4 a...

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    The i7-10700K was at $260 earlier. Is there really no good purpose for this crazy pricing other than a boring desktop gaming machine? I just realised that in the dual GPU setup there would most likely be an NVLink bridge which would cut down on the transfer going through the PCIe lanes.

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    By big GPUs does the RTX 3090 count? Because I will not be using any of the professional cards with 48GB+ memory. If anything I might get 2x3090s and NVLink them. So 2x x8 for GPU from the CPU and 2x x4 for NVMe from the chipset? Then again, no ECC means no chance for virtualization/ZFS...

    3080 ETH mining?

    I get quite a lot of captchas if I refresh the item page too much and it gets worse if you don't fill in the captchas. I did not add auto checkout because I didn't want to risk my account by logging in.

    3080 ETH mining?

    Lots on github. Wrote my own. Closed source sorry. Your bigger issue is evading Amazon's throttling/captcha triggers.

    RTX 3000 GPUs that are easy to disassemble?

    Asus and Gigabyte have blower 3090s. Last I heard there was also a 3080 in the works.

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    I was looking at it and definitely see the difference now. I just didn't expect an i9 to only have 16 lanes. I guess a Ryzen 5600X/5800X would be much better than the 10th Gen for server usage since they have ECC support and 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes. But unless you're doing 4x GPU gaming setups, 16...

    Amazon. But pretty useless these days with the tariffs and chip shortage.

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    I think at some point in time you have to weigh the hardware costs vs the power consumption. 10-core all-turbo on the older chips would consume a lot more power than the newer chips to get the same degree of performance? Are you running the 2689v4s on dual CPU? Otherwise, lane support should be...

    10 core i9-10900K now at 400USD. Getting really tempted to bite.

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    $1400 vs the $200-300 per 10th gen i7 seems pretty steep. Too bad they don't do dual CPU on the i7s.

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    Do you by any chance have any experience with Intel 10th Gen? The 8-core i7-10700F was recently going at 220USD and the i7-10700K with unlocked multiplier went for 280USD.

    For VMs? Can a single Ryzen can handle 24x 2-4 core VMs?

    LGA 2011-3 Upgrade Path?

    That's probably when I bought the most of my DDR3 at 11-13 per 16gb stick Does a single 8-core new CPU really outperform 4x12-core E5-2678V3? The single core turbo is definitely an important consideration for desktops. Is the jump from V3 to V4 really that significant? V3 is still compatible...

    3090 driver handicap?

    Occasional games. Currently use a standalone RX 580 but thinking of selling it with the premium people are offering for these cards.
