    If they could get the latency low enough sure.

    AMD RX Vega announcement.

    7 is a lucky number for the Asians so it will sell well for that alone.

    It would probably be better for games and programs like photoshop if that space was used for a l4 cache rather than extra cores but that wont happen.

    I guess for me because it's ~6 months away but still it's looking like being a great chip and I have enjoyed re4ading through the info you provided.

    There is cheaper mac than that... You better link us to what there looking at so we can compare. And if you could tell us exactly what kind of office work they are doing would help for example is it just web browsing and word docs or is there photoshop and video editing involved. Mac vs PC will largely come down to what the user is familiar with using in the past.

    Efficiency will have been improved a bit with the new process and MB VRM are often not as bad as some make out provided they have some direct airflow like the stock HSF provides. The time when you will have serious problems with a lot of MB is on a test bench using AIO with no fans moving air over the VRM. While in a case with a HSF the temperature will usually be acceptable if your not pushing for a high V OC. This will make for a tempting upgrade\new toy it's just a shame that what I really need is a new GPU and nvidia is milking the market due to a lack of competition
  7. Overclocking CPU and Ram are your best option for those games at 1080p. IPC of new CPU hasn't changed much. A faster GPU would allow you to run higher res and aa. Looks like a recent patch has added DX12 and a little multithreading support to wow which should improve your performance a little. But it doubt its good enough to see a improvement from a CPU with more than 4 cores.
  8. Probably wont be here till Monday now at which point I will be flying to Cairns so hopefully My pc will survive the journey and I can finally play with the new toys. I have been helping someone here who recently upgraded form a 2666 kit at 3200c17 to a 3200c14 kit only to find there CPU was slower. Even overclocking to 3800c16 wasn't enough but after tweaking the sub timings they are now out in front but it's looking like a large part of the performance gap is due to the new kits being single rank. https://www.overclock.net/forum/18051-memory/1715114-getting-lower-scores-benchmarks-higher-speed-ram.html Edit: It has arrived. To my surprise not only did it post at my previous OC it ran timespy and the performance increase on my 6700k was 3.5% with 4 sticks vs two at 3733c16. https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/5308339/spy/5285465 FF XIV benchmark is ~8% faster both in FPS and load times.

    There fanless to 40% load and virtually silent with the fan operating under 800RPM up to about 70% load.
  10. For any 2x8gb kits basically anything that calculates out to over 210 when you divide the frequency by the cas is probably b die as other chips just cant reach that speed reliably. With 2x16gb kits b die is more common at lower speeds. Although there may be some 3466 c16 kits that are d die or something. I believe anything 220+ is definitely b die and 240+ is a high bin of b die I don't follow any lists but google brings up a bunch that may show some lower binned kits. Trouble with lists is the likes of Corsair releases several revisions of the same model RAM each with a different model chip.

    I have updated some of the Whirlpool wiki a bit more recently if you want a look over whats changed. https://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/rmp_sg_whirlpoolpcs
  12. Here is another of there reviews where there running 4 sticks vs two sticks https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/adata-xpg-spectrix-d80-liquid-cool-ddr4-3600-kit,5663.html If somebody here has a standard 3200c16 or 3000c15 kit that could take a screenshot with ASRock Timing Configurator ver:4.0.3 https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z170 OC Formula/index.us.asp#Download Then I could run a test at that speed with correct sub timings for comparison.
  13. Curiosity got the better of me when newegg sent me a $30 discount ontop of there black Friday sale and so I have picked up a second kit of Samsung b die (3200c14 Flare X $244) 4 single rank kits should provide the same performance benefits as a 2x16GB dual rank kit but with a good MB 4x8GB can hit higher clock speeds. I was also tempted to play with a ITX 2600 system but wised up in time as all in all it would have cost as much as a RTX 2080 or a G-Sync monitor which would help my gaming rig much more than anything else. Back on topic so when the new kit arrives I will be running a bunch of detailed tests to see what effect it has since nobody else out there has done a good job of it yet as far as I can see. Toms hardware had a crack but its a bit short on details like what sub timings each kit had

    AMD RX Vega announcement.

    There about as power hungry as my GTX480 which I tossed in along side the GTX1070 the other day to test as a physics card.

    AMD RX Vega announcement.

    15% increase in clock speed 20% increase in power use so it now uses more than 1080ti and twice as much as the 1060 10% increase in performance Making it tied with fury x for the worst performance per watt card currently available sure seems like the new 12 nm FinFET process is a bit of a turd other than the 20% increase in clock speed. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/XFX/Radeon_RX_590_Fatboy/33.html
