    To be honest, I was reading about how the new AMD chips can be decoupled from the memory frequency and are very dependant on memory performance.

    This takes me straight back to NF2 boards and...

    Nice thread!
    I'm starting to want to sway and give these chips a go!

    I tend to agree. Back in the day, the performance was really conservative in stock hardware and the stock cooling was generally small.
    People couple actually go mad with adding cooling to get their...

    True, AMD is very much throwing up some good results at the moment!
    Maybe my next update will be to AMD again, I'm half hoping that they can beat out intel even more dominantly in games and i'll be...

    i'll be interested to see how these compete single thread. I'm big on my games, so interested to know if they will over take intel now in those applications.

    Still, the cost of the product isn't something I care about as a consumer, if the cost has gone up, that's not my fault. It's something that NV has to handle, not necessarily pass onto the customer....

    As a consumer, I don't really care about the size of the chip though. I care about what I'm paying and how good the device is at its job, that price just does not justify what you get from the...

    The problem that i have with this card is that the non-RTX performance jump just isn't big enough to warrant that ludicrous pricing. With a 1080ti already, that pricing is just not justifiable. If I...

    I think the change to core counts and the use of multi core in software has caused a change too. It used to be that your OC on your single threaded CPU meant a lot more than it does today.

    I also...

    Your memory is better than mine it seems!
    I didn't think about the older gens too much.

    That said, more cores might be nice, but I'm still not convinced that this will provide Average Joe with...

    The information seems weird to me.

    I thought that the i7's had hyperthreading and that the i9's were the quad chanel mega core counts?
    seems weird that you have to go i9 now to get the top GHZ...

    The difference does seem to be quite close to that of the 980ti against the 1070.

    But it seems very strange to see talk about the mid level card when we usually see a titan followed by an **80...

    This is a surprise, I thought that most UK houses had some kind of high speed internet already, If not all.

    I guess it depends what 'high speed' is classes as, surely that depends on the year,...

    This doesn't really excite me very much regardless.

    I mostly use the machine for games, so all this Moar Threads! trends not really doing it for me!

    I've found that Picture and file viewer has disappeared from my work laptop as well and the replacement app just crashes out on me!

    The way i view this one is by the last option.

    You can then just market to the highest single clock and everything else can just middle above base clock if need be.

    I'm not really surprised about this at all either.

    50% more cores, lower clocks, nearly 50% more performance.

    I wish that there would be more focus on single or low threaded performance. I'm...

    I tend to agree as well, i mostly use my machine for games and this trend of 'throw in more cores' isn't really giving much reason to consider any upgrades.

    I struggle to see the value of Optane at the moment. I realise that its a good value way to get 'sort of' SSD performance, but the price at the moment that i see in stores, you can get a much higher...
