The only thing it feels comparable to me is when they released Big Kepler (TITAN). In terms of performance leap.

But won't truly know u til I get a card in hand and see real benches.

I have a 9900k right now and want to switch to AMD. Do I:

A) get new X570 mobo and Zen 3

B) Wait for AM5/DDR5 mobos before making the switch to AMD CPU?


Why would you switch? the 9900k is gonna be an elite gaming CPU for years

Even with the Zen 3 IPC boost, not sure why you would switch over if you already have a beast 9900k system

Am I gonna need a new mobo for a 30 series card? I’ve got a B450 Tomahawk and I thought I heard someone on YouTube say that the new cards have a new PCI express plug.

I’m not as well versed as you guys in this hobby so I’m not sure.

No, the RTX 30 series cards will come with the power adapter cables required that connect to your PCIe power cables to your power supply.

People that spend $1700 on a GPU don't want to stay on 5+ year old CPU tech.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Depends, my old 4390K OC'd to 4.5 went nearly 5yrs.

Believe it seen the following GPUs:

2xTITANS SLi (2013)
2x780Ti SLi (2013)
2x980Ti SLi (2015)
2xTITAN X (Pascal) SLi (2016)

I upgraded from the Ivy-E 4930K to Broadwell-E 6850K during Pascal only because my X79 MOBO began giving me weird errors.

I agree, for the most part, but a lot of ppl will sit on CPU/MOBO combos for a few years unless crazy leaps in IPC come with a truly new architecture. Intel, I believe, hasn't had a truly new architecture since Haswell (not counting node).

All depends what games (engines) you play etc, and if it makes use of more cores, IPC or even single core IPC.

I'm happy with my 3900X, but, I can feel that lower single core IPC effecting me at times. What I hate about it is how aggressive it thermal throttles. I'm under water and the cpu rarely going over 55C, but when it approaches 60C it seems to pull back power/clocks a little too hard, which leads to not really stutters but funky frame time issues.

Back then sure, didn't really have choice. Today? Whole different ballgame with options and prices.

Don't wait on tech as you always say, if he wants to get the new Ryzen, then get it. Especially if you're going to spend that much on GPU/Monitor etc, just do the whole system at that point while you're in there. Hell he can probably sell the 9900K and get Zen 3 for free with the price differences or damn close.

I may do the same, need to see what 8700K's go for and how much a Zen 3 12 core costs. I keep the first ever builds fx8350 and mobo for emergencies.

I'm sure I'm in the minority on this one, but my typical pattern is spend a shitload of time building one and then not want to frick with it for 4-6 years

On my current build, I didn't even turn on the 1TB HDD in the bios until my SSD got full months later.

I guess that's one mentality, it's called consoles.

Before the build I just did, I kept my last 1 for 5 years. Same CPU/GPU combo. Just did small upgrades, like SSD, memory, better fans/cooling to lower noise, new monitor, etc..

Well played.

So nvidia pushed back the embargo lift to Wednesday because of shipping delays getting review samples out to other regions.

Also 3rd party card reviews are embargoed until Thursday when the founders card launches.

Can already see what's going to happen to 3080 and 3090, nvidia will have forced scarcity to drive prices up. Probably forget about getting them at $699 or $1499, was watching something last night about most 3080 cards going to be $800+ that you can actually get right away.

Here to report the Pixel 4A and Android 11 are a nightmare and more problems pop up daily.

Anyone else experience Android 11 issues? My Pixel 2 seems to have no issues, but also only use it for pictures. However, the GFs new 4A has new issues that pop up daily. Also requires several restarts a day. Will spend a little time with it tonight. Might reload android 11.
