decent volts too
Buy vega for the discount, buy your other gear, then flog it off to a miner for more than you paid when the stock dries up. Hell even if you sell the card at a small loss you'll still profit from the discount.
(if they're a decent mining card, the power draw may make them non viable).
Newegg are listing the X399 motherboard prices. They appear to be slightly more expensive than the X299 counterpart, but not by that much.
So no ITX threadrippers?
That would be an interesting and rather cramped board...
Paul's Hardware just confirmed that Threadripper will include a Torx screwdriver. So you're safe dude.
Video is worth a watch, probably the best summary out of all the review sites.
EDIT2: Full specs on Zenith Extreme now up on Asus.com website https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-ZENITH-EXTREME/
Where is this discount at?
Sweet mother of god. Its been a while since a consumer (non-server) AMD motherboard has commanded $700 AUD (from a US seller, I imagine locally it will be more).
Compare to the Asus kcma-dl dual c32 8x ddr3 which you can pick up for <$300
The tachi, the gigabyte and the MSI all seem like reasonable value and decent options.
I like the tachi because it doesn't have gaming written all over it. Because when your specing a workstation, I don't want a MeGA GameMax board.
Every other board has gaming in the title, even though Threadripper is not about gaming.
If you're talking about the Zenith, it's exactly what I paid for my 2x Rampage V Extreme mobos and since AMD now have a HEDT offering, I was expecting the price to be the same.
Just wait till the Rampage VI Extreme (X299) lands here in Australia, it will be over $1000AUD.
The £189 Ryzen 5 1600 now occupies the first spot on Amazon UK’s best sellers list for CPUs. The chip displaced Intel’s widely popular £312 Core i7-7700K from its top spot to lead the list.
can i now take a dump on intel?
You sure can. Go ahead and take that glorious moment.
Excuse me good scorptec sir, will TR be available for pre-order today?
Time to celebrate by building a new desktop me thinks
Not without Court Jester around
PCCG have Threadripper pricing up. I know it's PCCG the price gouging kents but it looks a little ridiculous.
Serious gouging https://www.pccasegear.com/products/39913/asus-rog-zenith-extreme-motherboard
So pccg are trying to ask a wopping 1049 AUD for a asus board you can get on newegg for 550usd (690aud)
Thats some shitty over charging right there
there are several items ill be getting from u.s. to be sure
g card and ram atm
They always do it the scumbags. But yes at it stage it looks like newegg is the way to go. I'm all for supporting local business, but not if they are going to bend me over and break out the strap-on.
