Seems dumb when we'll have DDR5 late this year.

Aww.. love it.

I'm driving to Dallas right now and had to tell my pup goodbye for 3weeks.

Crazy how they become your children.

I'm hoping he likes water, too early to tell. He fell in our pool chasing the skimmer though and swam well. Was hilarious.

Get him in early.

Never spray with water and never force into water.

The only thing you can't condition a dog to in my experience is drive and gun shy.

Everything else it usually comes around with work.

What are you guys thought on Navi RX 5700 XT and RX 5700.

Overall hard to dislike supposed performance, however pricing leaves a bit to be desired, especially on 5700 at $379. That's a RTX 2060 competitor and it's $30 more? Doesn't seem like much of a value. 5700 XT is $449 undercutting $499 RTX 2070 which is nice but my question is this:

What happens when 2060ti and 2070ti come out later this year? I would imagine Nvidia's stack would look like this then for starting price for each of their cards using microcenter pricing:

1650: $149 (current) -> $129 (new)
1660: $219 (current) -> $199 (new)
1660 ti: $269 (current) -> $249 (new)
2060: $349 (current) -> $299-$329 (new)
2060 ti: $349-$399 (new)
2070: $499 (current) -> $449 (new)
2070 ti: $499-$549 (new)
2080: $699 (current) -> $649 (new)...maybe just keep it at $699 too?

the 2060 and 2070 ti's are certainly going to drop the 2060 and 2070 pricing some, and then the AMD cards look a little, well, not great.

Also, blower style cooler on the reference card, they never learn

Solid mid range cards.

I'll wait for full Navi with their Ray tracing high end offering in Q1 though.

Love their implementation of Ray tracing using cloud compute to help power the new tech.

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats $2,000 Intel Core i9-9980XE In Geekbench Test

quote:

Perhaps the craziest part about this is that Intel’s 18-core CPU sells for about $2,000, while AMD’s 3950X will be less than half of that at $750.

The results show the AMD chip besting the Intel one in single-core score (5,868 vs. 5,395). But it's the 3950X's multi-core score that's especially impressive, with a 31% advantage over the i9-9980XE, which scores (on average) only 46,618 points, according to Geekbench.

Geekbench shows the chip as having a 3.3 GHz base clock speed and a 4.3 GHz turbo clock speed, which may point to this chip being an engineering sample. That means that the Ryzen 9 3950X could show even better performance in the fall, as AMD advertised a 3.5-GHz base clock speed and a 4.7-GHz boosted clock speed for the chip.

Pretty sure I recently threw out an 1151 stock cooler when I did some cleaning. I'll check when I get home

tbh, i'm just getting involved in PCs. i've made a fairly hefty investment thus far, so i feel like mine would be the 1 out of 10000 that would leak.
