Re: I bit the bullet. I pre-ordered the best RYZEN chip. [PICTURES INSIDE]

Been super busy at work so not a lot of time for benches. Also still tweaking the system and I think I wont be doing any game benching until VEGA arrives. I was able to get my Corsair LPX 3200mhx rated RAM to 3200 MHZ today. Settled for 16-16-16-32 timings. Had to go to 1.42 volts for that. It made ...

Re: I bit the bullet. I pre-ordered the best RYZEN chip.

I would also like to point out that if minimum frames per second are considered (which imo is just as important as averages, because thats the only time you see slow downs in performance), the chip more than holds its ground compared to 6900k. GamerNexus tested a ton of games and the results are awe...

Re: I bit the bullet. I pre-ordered the best RYZEN chip.

Still happy with the purchase? Less happy than seeing previous leaks but nonetheless happy and would choose same chip again. No plans on a return. Even when its 25% slower in some games compared to 6900k, gotta remember its half the cost. Hell even the worst case scenario when its 50% slower, cost ...

Re: Windows Sucks and more about Solus Operating System

I like Linux also but here again is my number one complaint, too many distros. Everybody thinks they will have the best, easiest, cleanest, most versatile, etc and it ends up being such a wading pool people just turn back to Windows. I like Linux Mint, except the stupid upgrading process where it i...

Windows Sucks and more about Solus Operating System

Just wanted to share this since I have pretty much no one to talk to IRL about linux. There is an awesome linux distribution called Solus that is being developed by Ikey Dougherty (this guy is an intel dev and a really really really smart guy). Its an independent distro, not based on anything else, ...

Re: what are we expecting from ZEN?

after seeing some of the leaks i am becoming optimistic about zen. I remember the phenom II days when we at least had an option between intel and amd when it came to cpus even if AMD did not have the fastest chip. Look forward to returning to that and will be building AMD only box if their hardware ...

what are we expecting from ZEN?

What are the current expectations for Zen? Been looking online a lot, very scarce info... Anyone got any insider rumors or general hearsay?

Looking for ballpark info... basically to figure out if this thing will be competitive or not.

Anyone running linux?

Just curious if any LR people run linux now that more games are available. I started a few years ago, haven't used windows for quite a while.

If so which flavor are you running?
