    Any chance the next I7 8700k will be a 6 core 12 thread chip?

    I didnt enjoy the barbecue stuff, the most decent way to say it is that it felt gross.

    I wish WAN show (by LTT) was more like this. This is real in-depth professional tech-talk. Enjoy it a lot!

    Why don't you just install Windows 10 on the Mac. It actually works very well on it.

    The performance you loose in gaming for Ryzen is nothing compared to the productivity performance you loose in Intel. I think the new Amd chips are the way to go. Not sure if i should get a 1600x over my 2600k @4.5 as all i do is game. Maybe wait for the second gen of Ryzen.

    Thunderbolt has its bandwidth limitations for an external gpu, but Alienware has a proprietary (4 x pcie 3.0) that does not have these limitations. You have to make sure you use an external monitor (or VR headset) plugged directly into the external gpu though. If you send the display signal back to the laptop display you will take a definite hit on bandwidth.

    You guys are great, I look forward to hearing your take on the week's development. Thanks for doing such a great job. I appreciate the tilt toward what normal hardware enthusiasts are actually able to buy.

  • March 22, 2017 at 4:59 pm

    Can we address the question of where the bandwith limit of the thunderbolt box is?

    I think the 1080 and 1080Ti are really bumping up against the limits and maybe don't make sense.
    Is the 1070 more appropriate?

    im not a peasant so i dont use it, but, if you have DVI @ 144 like Brad is saying, you HAVE TO HAVE a different adapter; an active one. The included one is passive.

    1080ti > sli 1070. come on. even in the games it supported they tie. and, 2 1070s cost more than a 1080ti as well.

    As far as the performance deficit of ryzen vs intel in gaming, personally I would rather buy the ryzen chip and invest the money saved from buying a comparable intel chip into other parts of the build, mostly a better video card. I feel that would more than offset the performance loss of the cpu. Also I believe over time as optimizations come along and what not, Ryzen performance will improve, making the investment even better.

    nobody is going to buy into ryzen at the current price points. I7 7700k all the way.

  • March 23, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    you guys cracked me up with the naming scheme comparisons. It really did come from bimmers I think!

    Gordon- where you about to blame the wife for the one game rule? 😀
    On battlefield- Last great one was Bad Company 2. Gustav king, right here. I was the first person to have the Platinum star on that thing lol.

    I live in the Netherlands, almost nobody uses an Apple laptop (<5%). For desktops the marketshare is even lower.

    "Every CPU should come with a stock cooler."
    Hell no! Why!? It has to be tiny, it can't be highend. It won't dissipate enough heat and it makes a lot of noise. Lower the price, let people choose their own cooler. That makes much more sense to me. 😉

    With regard to Ryzen's gaming performance, it has become clear that the speed of the RAM has a huge influence, much more than that is the case for Intel. Have some patience, the gaming performance is already ok and it will only get better.

    I usually buy the 80 series cards. I went from a GTX 580 to 680 to R9 390 to GTX 1060. I was jumping around but i like the 1060 good on power good for 1080p got a good deal so imma wait for Vega. And B350 for 100 dollrs is the best chipset still supports crossfire and has most of the features that the X370 boards have. These guys dont overclock too much so no need for all those extreme overclocker boards. Maybe Ryzen 2 will benefit from the X370 chipset but for these 1st generation chips. they just dont.

    With the Ryzen i have the R7 for me its 70 bucks less for 2 less cores and 4 less threads that makes a difference in some applications so i would still recommend Ryzen 7 over Ryzen 5 but thats just me 🙂 Also that Ryzen 4c 8t is like haswell performance. So its 4 year old arch now with more power efficiency ALSO i think Ryzen 5 4cores are only 1 CCX? They might not be but i think they are only 1 CCX it would be more cost effective for AMD to do it that way with 1 CCX/

    I just wanna inform this channel and talk show guys that, ryzen depends on RAM speed and, at 3600mhz ram sticks, ryzen is faster than intel in games. So with time, performance in games will change in AMD favor. And yes, there are some more problems with SMT clearly, everyone see it. You pretty much figure it out just looking at performance in different games and comparing with intel. The last windows 10 update gave AMD a performance bump.

    And about "hey AMD is third place, it's good" no, sorry isn't really good and no, it's not third place. It's mostly first. Because ryzen with the optimizations and ram speed is there in gaming counting gaming as "the game" alone. But gamers do a lot of stuff, not just streaming where a 1700 destroys a 7700k at any speed. But everything you have in background running nowdays as gamers do. And the productivity Ryzen gives, like twice the cores and performance in general apps than intel and what, you skip that because 5- 10 fps in some games? no, and not even that because ryzen will get better than intel at games too.

    should i upgrad GPU got i5 6600k 16 gb ram ddr4 an a R9 290x stile geting over 80 to 75 fps 2560/1440 on gta5

    These people spend so much time Gloating and drooling on the same old NVIDIA this and that and this and that. Truth is , anyone that bought a TITAN XP just got screwed over BIG TIME..

    CALL Spade a Spade. That is what happened.

    Nvidia is already moved on from 1080ti mark my words folks. By the time VEGA Rx is released you will see NVIDIA talking smack about VOLTA ! and how much better that will be and how everyone should buy that.

    Look at the last video and how much time they spend hyping up Nvidia, like 3/4 of the video and this one 40 mins of saem old TITAN X and 1080ti bs, ffs. LOL

    Anyways, Im smarter then most and not upgrading till I SEE VEGA RX reviews and specs + price.

    I will get a GTX 1080 Ti for my 2560 by 1440 ASUS monitor as it goes to 165Hz. I run my GTX 1080 and it whines up at 120Hz on some games.
