Ice Lake will work with LGA1151. In fact, LGA1151 support has so far lasted about 4 years going on 5 (Skylake to Ice Lake). The same can't be said for any AMD sockets (not counting AM3+, because the last CPU launched for it was in 2013).

I'm tempted to get this one because its so cheap but at the same time I want to be restrictive and save for a super specced out monitor. But I do want to see if 32" monitors are for me and I could just sell it afterwards when I upgrade since its a bad monitor in the long term (panel is underwhelming, no vesa support, not 4K, overall not the greatest monitor for media consumption).

Right now I have a 144hz TN 24" that I plan to keep.

Should I?

They are legit but the cables don't support 4K at 120hz.

You need a better graphics card more than a better CPU. If you want to play ARMA3 on max you'd probably need a heavy OC on your i5 or maybe even a 4770K with an OC, plus the new graphics card

>> No.65064882

Kohai, don't be retarded.

> M.2 drive (any will do, right?)
If you really want to use M.2 for file server (I don't see a point), then at least buy NVMe instead of SATA. The trick is that both flavours are available as M.2 and clueless retards buy SATA M.2 often. Then, if you really want it to provide any kind of benefit for your NAS, make sure to configure it as cache for your slow HDDs (not sure if that's possible in FreeNAS though, in plain Linux yes).

> PicoPSU
Not for HDDs! Go for regular PSU.

The point is to save space (no need for cables etc.) in a mini-itx case, senpai desu.

I only plan for it to be a NAS drive that is a 'slave' to my desktop PC for regular file backups.

Prices for NVMe M.2s are rather high, senpai, but if you think it will make the difference...

All of TCL's TVs are native 60Hz panels with optional frame interpolation, which is useless for gay men since it adds tons of input lag. You have to pay significantly more for a TV like the X900E to get a native 120Hz panel (all of which can only do 120Hz at 1080p or below).

> NVMe vs SATA in a fileserver
Kohai. Your bottleneck will be network bandwidth anyway (single 1GBit interface in that ASUS Prime).

When it comes to accessing block devices, Unix-likes are caching in RAM very aggressively.

So the question is whether you really want to see any improvement by installing SSD. If you want, then go for the best available, since limiting factor will be access time rather than bandwidth (that is limited by the network card anyway).

If you think of buying SSD just to install the OS, don't waste money, you might as well put it on the HDD (FreeNAS supports installation on the same device that is used to store the data, right?).

Alright, this shit needs to stop. Most creative or modeling software do not take advantage of more than 6 THREADS (not cores, you fuckwits). That means that your best option for multitasking is any CPU that has 6 threads with the highest IPC and clock speed possible. This means that Ryzen 1600 goes into the fucking garbage while the Core i5-8400 comes out on top of the shit heap.

I can say with 100% certainty that Ice lake will not be compatible with Z170, Z270 or Z370. Intel always aligns a socket change with a new uarch change, it's been over a decade since the last time you could have two different uarch's on the same board. It would be a monumental act of good will for Intel to make Ice Lake backwards compatible, which is just wishful thinking.

with less features, lower quality parts, and soon to be matched by H310/B360 motherboards which will undercut B350/B450 and still have more features (apart from overclocking, which almost none of the cheap B350 are adept at doing).
Also, you need to buy significantly more expensive RAM in order to make Ryzen even remotely competitive with Coffee Lake. DDR4-3200 is the bare minimum speed you need to come for a Ryzen 1600 at 3.9 on all cores to get 90% of a Core i5-8400's single threaded IPC. And of course there's this whole issue of most DDR4-2666+ memory kits not working at their advertised speed unless you bought a $100+ B350 or X370 motherboard...
>last untill 2020
And fuck over anyone who kept their old motherboard by locking out features in the newer CPUs (like XFR2.0 in Ryzen 2). Also, there is no guarantee that AM4 will support Zen 2. Remember what happened with AM1?
>unlocked cpu
You need an unlocked CPU for Zen just to catch up with a stock clock Coffee Lake, and even then it's not enough to compete.
>Even the benchmarks i saw seems to run smoother on 1600

Ok guys. I have quite of a big problem. I purchased a r3 2200g, asked for a bootkit and updated bios of my mobo and put inside r3.
My conf is:
R3 2200g
Asrock b350m pro4
8 gb random value ddr4 memory
Gtx 670.
As soon as i start the pc with the nvidia connected it will freeze after some time. The screen frezes, event viewer tell me nvdrivers crashed and anything apart from audio won't work.
So i tried the gpu in another pc and it works fine. I said, ok. Let's try with the APU only. Same freezes. Then i said let's move on the bootkit cpu. With the A8 9600 it will freeze only with gpu in the first slot of the mobo. Without dGPU it runs ok.
What the actual fuck?
The GPU is working fine.
The A8 APU only works with no dGPU
Ryzen 3 2200g is not working in any possible way.
At first i was pointing my finger at the mobo, but it shouldn't work with A8 too...

Holy shit, did you seriously think you could get away with blatantly lying? You just compared B350 (a midrange AMD chipset) with Z370 (a high end Intel chipset). X370 supports 8 SATA devices, with NONE from the CPU. It only kills one SATA port if you have a SATA m.2 device. If you have an NVMe m.2 device, no SATA ports are lost.

>AM4 has pins on the CPU package, making it prone to breaking
You can lap AMD CPU's easily without pins breaking. Also you can fix PGA pins, whereas fixing an LGA mobo is nigh impossible.

This thread is full of Intel shills blatantly lying. One tried to claim that Intel have given people nearly five years of support with LGA 1151 earlier (despite the socket coming to market in late 2015 and getting an incompatible revision last year).

Wrong again, SATA M.2s take up TWO PCIe lanes. Which means that a single M.2 SATA device will disable TWO SATA ports from the CPU.

>Cheaper mobos with less features, lower quality parts, and soon to be matched by H310/B360 motherboards which will undercut B350/B450 and still have more features (apart from overclocking, which almost none of the cheap B350 are adept at doing)
Overclocking is one of the main features of a B350. All B350s can supply a moderate OC which is all anyone sane is doing anyway. The rest of the "points" (features, undercut, etc) in your comment are also obviously wrong.

It's a good time to buy processors, but you'll have to get an 8600K, 8700, or 8700K to have any single-thread benefit. If you want a Ryzen chip that performs better all-around, wait a couple months for the 12nm release.

CPU, RAM, and motherboard all need to be bought at the same time. SSDs are a staple of modern builds, but your old PC doesn't support SATA 3 or M.2 so there isn't a point in getting one before that.
PSU and case probably need an upgrade, but you don't necessarily need to buy them at the same time.

I'm planning on buying an SSD and I've narrowed it down to the two best candidates but there's one thing I'm not sure how to evaluate.

Samsung Evo 850 vs Crucial MX500

They are about the same in specs with the EVO being a bit more expensive. My only problem is that the EVO is nearing 4 years of age and I'm not sure of two things:

1. The MX500 can turn out to have some faults since it's been out for just two months.

2. The Evo 850 is old, so it surely will be reliable but I'm afraid I'll be sold a unit that has been laying on the shelf for a long time. Does inactive time affect the disks?

I don’t know how big and complicated the CUDA parts that fakeapp uses are – if it’s not much and you’re on Linux ready to do a bit of work, you can try AMD’s HIP-project. It’s basically a CUDA-clone that can compile to both the normal CUDA backend and some novel AMD GPU compute backend called "HCC".


There’s a script included ("hipify") which can do most of the CUDA->HIP porting work automatically. The whole thing is still far from perfect, but I successfully ported a CUDA crypto miner with this. Maybe you can find some more guys interested in this and maintain an open source HIP port. (Seems to be a pretty popular project, after all.)

If you run into issues, it’s often best to file a bug directly with the ROCm repo (umbrella for everything related to AMD’s "HCC" open source compute push), because devs are most responsive there.

Actually there seems to be guide for running deepfakes on AMD here, though it uses OpenCL-tensorflow: https://www.deepfakes.club/deepfakes-with-amd-graphics-card/

If it’s really only about tensorflow, there is also a HIP-port available here:

Trying to figure a replacement monitor since mine is dying, but I'm a complete dunce when it comes to this kind of stuff.

I game quite a bit (mostly indie stuff/emulators), but I also watch many videos + edit (both photos and video). I feel like TN would harm my editing endeavors more than it would benefit my gaming, so I'm pretty much settled on IPS.

While researching lightly around, I seem to see people mostly recommending Dell Ultrasharp monitors, and specifically the U2415 (16:10, 1200p, 1.3k BRL) and the U2717D (16:9, 1440p, 2.3k BRL). Would those be decent choices or am I better off with something else?

Not much point in stating my budget since prices are inflated as fuck over here in Hueland, but it would be 2.5k BRL at most. I also have a 550 TI. Yes, I know I need to upgrade, but I need to get a new monitor as soon as possible.

Exactly what I was saying. I did my best to come close and couldn't even touch it price wise. My builds all had 1050Ti's or 1060 3GB cards in them and they still came out to almost $1400. And that was with really cutting corners.

Ram price drops when? I can deal with cards being expensive because the fucking miners are at fault. But why is ram so much fucking money now? I got my 32GB kit of low latency ddr4 for $130. That same kit is now $320.

So I've been having some stuttering issues with my new RX580, checked the GPU vrm voltage IN via hwinfo and noticed that while in idle it sits at around 11.8V, which is within reasonable tolerance, under load it dropped all the way down to 11.05V at times. I read that a 5% offset is reasonable but this dip is way beyond that, should I get a new one? The one I have is 4 years old and chink but it served ok until now except for some heavy coil whine under load (louder than the GPU). Considering the RX580 is more power hungry than my old card I wouldn't want to fry it but at the same time I'm not sure that will solve the issue.
