    Shoulda bought amd a while ago before everyone was hyping them. Now the stock price already has all this built in.

    I'll have to take a look at this. I didn't think AMD would be able to compete on the high end.

    Half price, not half performance, good enough for me.

    So does AMD have anything that tops Intel at the high end?

    Intel i9-7980XE is clocked very low, we'll know more about threadripper in 2 days.

    Things are getting really exciting.

    Might be the perfect time to upgrade.

    All I see on Intel's spec sheet is a 18 core chip that has 44 pcie lanes vs 64 on Threadripper 1950x, 24.75mb cache vs 32mb on Threadripper 1950x, base clock of 2.6ghz vs 3.4ghz on Threadripper 1950x.

    The fact that Intel gimped all their cpu's below the 7900x with less than 44 pcie lanes is a joke. The media is killing Intel right now, for their sh*tshow i9 launch. Also AMD actually solders their chips, delid any i9 and the f*cking things has cheap thermal compound on them.

    Threadripper 1950x $999 vs i9 7900x $999 (7900x gets an ass wooping. Going to take the 16 or 18 core i9 to compete with those numbers.)

    Have you even see a Threadripper chip. The thing is the size of the palm of your hand. it is a beast.

    Ok, good post. Will this Threadripper top that Intel $2k processor though?

    Tough to call really. It better for $2k. But I see it only being slightly better. Even then lets say you want two 1080ti's in SLI. That is 32 pcie lanes right there. A couple NVME drives, thats another 8 lanes. So you up to 40 lanes. Only 4 left on the i9, but 24 on the Threadripper. Then you want to connect of sound card, more ssd's, captcher card, etc... You are f*cked on the i9. Current highend rigs are going to use the 64 pcie lanes.

    Ok I think I'm understanding this here that you will want more lanes regardless of the core count.

    This Threadripper is supposed to officially come out in a couple days. If it is as awesome as expected I think it may be time to ditch the laptop, well supplement it, with a triple monitor 4k setup.

    Should I be concerned about the electricity cost?

    We will know more in a couple days the NDA will lift on Threadripper and all specs, testing will be released. All these new cpu's from Intel and AMD are going to be power hungry. But I wouldn't worry about, not like you are running 10 mining rigs 1200watts each.

    I am thinking about a Threadripper 1950x, but going Intel for the GPU. 1080ti's are the ticket right now, new Vega 64 isn't going to top it.

    Vega 56 and Vega 64 is coming out soon. Suppose to compete with Nvidia GTX 1070 and 1080. The 1080ti is still pound for pound king.

    Volta...early 2018. Basically all speculation, no hard facts at moment. But its coming and it will outperform 1080ti, it is probably 6 months away though.
