*That's "Koala's Store" for you...
Amazon's decision to deliberately maximise the Amazon branding and minimise the marketplace participant's.
They can live with the bad press.
No next day Prime delivery, no deal.
5950X at Umart, if anyone feels like paying a markup at $1399 https://www.umart.com.au/AMD-Ryzen-9-5950X-16-Core-AM4-4-9GHz-CPU-Processor_57287G.html
not a bad price if its in stock !
My 5800x just arrived today... Couldn't get a 5600 so gave in and went up a notch...
Got a gigabyte b550 itx board and an EK 240mm AIO... all to fit into the NR200p.
Should be fun, upgrading from my 3570k.
Do you think it will be a performance increase?
Night and day beyond anything that lowly Ivy Birdge CPU could ever imagine
Put that 3570k in a home
Put linux on it and turn it into a server. I'm waiting on some parts for my 5900x system, and that's what I am doing with my 3770k
Still waiting for my 5900x to arrive.
Upgrading from a 6700K to a 5900x should be masive i hope lol.
even CentreCom have updated their 5600x price to $550, sub 500 seems unlikely in the near term.
5950X back again at Umart:
EDIT: Aaaaaaand gone.
Seeing there is a lot of debate about this topic in these parts, a good video wrt processors and 7nm vs 14nm, I have also posted this in the Intel Rocket Lake thread:
i posted this vid 6 months ago and didnt get a bite
they look at L3 cache which is known to be unoptimised and not really screwed down.
so i kinda wonder if their analysis is even relevant ???
Size of the transistors is most likely still relevant, as cache is generally packed a bit tighter than the logic part of the die, but still using the same lithography process...I have anyway seen more technical videos of these different processes, alluding to the same as what Derbauer did.
Still an interesting video anyway, and the scale of those tiny structures is just off the charts..
Which is why TSMC never uses '7nm' or '5nm' to describe their processes. They use 'N7' and 'N5' as their process branding. I posted a couple of articles on this a while back over at the TSMC Roadmap and Status thread;
https://www.gwern.net/docs/cs/2020-moore.pdf - efforts to standardise 'process node numbers' to something more realistic and relevant to the actual atomic distances
^^ Yep, fully agreed, but the way fanboys both sides of the divide argues these topics, well....
Still baffles my mind how people can get that defensive about bits of hardware, I am simply a fanboy of technology. Whatever provides the fastest stable gaming performance for me in iRacing, is the cpu I would go for, irrespective the logo on its box. For the moment, it is a toss-up between what Rocket Lake will realistically bring to the table, vs an already impressive Ryzen 5.
Hopefully the former would drop sooner rather than later, so we can get real-world feedback, hopefully the later will be available to buy in the 5900x format #soon too.
‘I will check your links, cheers Mate.
Did Azzan send you over here or is this your thinly veiled attemp at trolling the AMD thread. You have a clear Intel biased track record on these forums so we know quite well where you stand mate.
Lols, don’t be a spaz
‘My wife’s gaming-rig is a nice little AMD 3700x box, if I could have bought a 5900x anywhere in Oz at a decent price, I would have had an AMD system for iRacing use already a while back. I competed very well during the FX55 and FX57 days on the global scene, but since then AMD has been nowhere.
Hence my use of Intel in the intervening years. Now AMD has made very good strides and I am fully inclined to give it a decent go to see how it will work as an iRacing rig. I need max single-core performance.
So your myopic views and comments, well, you can stick them you know where, doubt they can get in because your head’s up there.
Now now, no need for insults, or so I have been told by the admins. Judging by your response, I hit the nail on the head.
