I looked into the Intel ME controversy and it seems that AMD FX is the best option now. Newer than Core2Duo with no ME. AMD implemented a ME after 2013 similar to Intel, so it seems that Ryzen is no-go. Also, AMD FX general thread. And do't worry I won't buy the space heater one.

In reality it's pointless.

NSA/CIA/mossad has 100 other backdoors that aren't related to DRM chips that you haven't ever heard of before.

If you want a actually secure system you need a public facing node and a private node. Make sure every packet is tracked and accounted for coming in and out. Also install Gentoo and BSD.

Look at the way actual companies use to secure their private networks and data and implement your own version.

Yeah it's similar in that it's another processor but it doesn't nearly have the access and control
AMDs Secure tech mostly deals with key generation, validation and provides a TPM, the only data it has access to is data that you feed it
The ME on the other hand has unfettered access to everything in memory and has it's own TCP/IP stack so it can operate completely independent of the OS

That's the 9900K you're talking about. A $30 air cooler like the 212 or hyper T4 is overkill for an 8350 at stock, and it can be overclocked to 4.5 or 4.6.

The Platform Security Processor is an ARM core integrated in the main die of all contemporary AMD CPUs. Ostensibly its purpose is to secure the boot process and implement security extensions to segregate core instruction executions. In reality it is a black box capable of accessing the entire system memory space and hiding its own code executions. The PSP cannot be removed or disabled; if the PSP's signed firmware is not present, the processor will not be released from reset and fail to boot.

>> No.70765353

Obviously, even the G5 had a seperate CPU to initialize the main CPUs. It was already confirmed by 3rd parties that if it's disabled in the BIOS, any management features can't even be forced on and that's ONLY on the local system with administrator access.

It depends on your needs. It's strength lies in multicore performance. It will do very well for a budget CPU in any task that can utilise all of it's threads. If not, you're probably better off with a Ryzen 3.

Lots of intel fanboys in here. AMD FX CPUS are perfectly fine. I am an AMD fan boy. But I have been because I always go with bang for your buck. You get a 8 core CPU that will do anything you need unless you are rendering shit. If you are just a general PC user and gamer there is no issue with the FX CPUs.

>Single thread preformance
Fine get a fucking an older AMD six core like the 1090t. I was gaming on that until a few months ago when a lighting strike fried my Mother board. (RIP Sabertooth) Yeah I know I'm too broke right now for a UPS. I was gaming at 1080 with no issues. at 1080 and over your GPPU matters way more than your CPU.

>it's a heater
Umm no. I'm using the same WC loop I used in my 1090t and it reaches the same temps at the same CPU speed and the same voltage. Same GPU in the loop as well.

I'd like to add get a good board and add extra VRM cooling, if you plan to OC. Avoid Asus's 990fx except the sabertooth. The other 4 asus boards I've used in the 990fx and 970fx brackets have shit VRM cooling. They can work great if you add a 40mm fan to the Northbridge heat sink and VRM sinks.

The Asus Sabertooth AM3+ boards were really good, took Gigabyte until 2013 to make a UD3 that could overclock an 8350 without overheating the VRM, and the $279 Asus Formula-Z was kinda pointless because the price to performance of FX goes out the window and you may as well build a 3770 rig.

I honestly forgot about the crosshair formulas. They are good. The VRM is just as good as the sabertooth's. I used a crosshair fomula for my brother's PC Very cool board. I never got the chance to OC with it since my brother didn't want to bother and I gave him my old Xigmatek HDT cooler, which probably could not handle too much more than that stock voltage. It held the fx-8370 at 45C under load, though.

My thing is if the ME was that much of a threat it wouldn't be disabled or crippled so easily
At the same time if it can be crippled so easily than the ME must not be that big of a threat as schizos make it out to be

You know what the ME_Cleaner does? It REMOVES most modules in addition to setting the HAP bit, if you use it with the /S switch. Using the /s switch will only flip the HAP bit, and not using either switch will only result in the removal of those modules, and ME will fail to initialize after loading the CPU itself but without the 30 minute timebomb. If what you believe is true, i.e. the botnet is not easily removed, then most of the modules shouldn't be removable after all. Also, the HAP bit is undisclosed to the public(it was meant for government agencies after all) until Positive Technologies discovered it.

>> No.70787691

Honestly as outdated as the FX line is I can't actually think of anything consumer-grade that needs me to go past an 8350 (hell, my having that over a 6100 is mostly relevant for a handful of modern games), seems like it's graphics where all the demand is.

That's why the 8350 is easy to love when you look at it from a modern multicore aspect, the thing cost $195 and was throwing blows with a $330 locked i7 3770, and it matches an i7 4770 when you overclock it to 4.5.

I'd reccomend it.
I won the silicone lottery on the FX 8320 that I bought like 3 years ago. I have it overclocked to like 4.3 gigahertz, and it idles at something like 28 degrees Celsius. Under load, we're talking 50, max. And that's only with a 212 Evo. The thing's a beast, definetly the best tech purchase I've made. And it was unexpected too: I went to the small computer store nearby to buy Intel in particular, because I was doing a lot of emulation and wanted IPC. The guy TALKED me into buying AMD because that chip in particular dropped in price a bunch. He had to convince me.

The decoder issue was fixed in Steamroller for cheap, low power mobile chips and APUs. The highest end parts only had 2 modules (4 "cores"). There was never a high-end desktop or server version to replace the FX 8350.

4.3GHZ isn't particularly high for an fx8320. You didn't win the silicone lottery unless that's with an undervolt. Anyone can easily reach 4.4GHz with the minimum voltage step increase of 0.025V

People either got memory holed or just didn't care at the time but before all the snowden revelations in the early 2000's every backbone was having monitoring installed. Long before that the government had systems like Carnivore that would tag you based on key words said over the phone. It doesn't matter if you have a back door or not. Every bit and byte goes through multiple redundancies of monitoring hardware and is available at any time your government needs it.

Just sold my 8320. It was performing very well for its age, played lots of vidya, i've replaced it only because i had ~20fps in more demanding location in persona 5 on ps3 emu and because my vr motion controller tracking is extremely cpu-demanding (ps move, four cameras, imagine processing data from those four cameras at 60fps while also running a video game).

I was also drying sausages behind my PC, although my glorious @4.5GHz vishera was generating so much heat that you could call it 'cooking' at this point. Dead serious, it worked very well, two days behind my pc was equivalent of two weeks of ordinary drying in any other dry/warm place.

Yeah 1.45 is the line in the sand where FX starts to get stupid hot, mine does it stable at 1.4v, and I'd probably need 1.45v to do 4.6GHz, which would be do damn hot.

I would also like to know if it would be worth to get an FX-8350? I've seen some benchmarks and they perfom quite well despite the age. I'm also on a budget, and buying something like a Ryzen would mean having to buy not only a new mobo but DDR4 ram which is still expensive in my country.

What are you planning on using the computer for?

>> No.70801142

If the performance is fine for you, an 8350 for $75 with 16gb of ram and a brand new 970 motherboard for 80 dollars is not a bad deal, i'm not sure what hardware you already have, but if you already have an am3+ board or DDR3 laying around it's a good idea to put it to use since 8350 costs nothing now.

If you are not planning on ever upgrading the GPU, then the FX-8350 will be fine. I always see it on Newegg for $75 which is not a good deal in my eyes. The Ryzen 5 1600 has been going for $80 on microcenter.com for a few months now. And the Ryzen 3000 leaks have 6 core 12 thread Ryzens priced at the $100 range. It's not a good time to buy an FX chip. Never was in all honesty.
