Yup and they'd probably grab kabby print them on SKY-X line, and package them to produce 4 core CPUs on socket 2066. I'm not sure if they would weld them, or we would have thermal paste on Kabby-X.
I really liked that MB. It took me 3 months to decide between 6600K and 5820K. It was only 1 month+ delivery time for higher end MB that prevented me. (And then refrigerator broke, and I kinda use the money difference to buy new one and 3 year extended warranty.) I wanted X99-M WS/SE, but shop said they must theirs supplier to ask him to place order, and it would take at least month before he would get it.
But X-99M has great fins, and I wonder if Asus would create some thing as cheap, yet durable, reliable, and WS certified for SKY-X. And cheaper, nearly identical just without WiFi, version is a nice bonus.

Majority of simulations.
(I know Rome 2 works awesomely on G3583, but there are other strategies that requires quite a bit of cores.)
BTW what are new requirements for PS3 emulator? While I changed paste on my second hand PS3, it will go down, and I'd like to be able to play atelier games on PC. Or Tales of Xila, or Demon's Souls.
A lot of games require a lot of CPU power. It was just older games where developers cheated and didn't activate environment until player arrived, then added stuff to feel right even when it wasn't entirely simulated. The problem is it should be simulated in a lot of cases. (For example in GTA V, there is really no point in not simulating the traffic in the whole city. It's just Rockstar that can't do stuff I programmed when I was high school dropout for health reasons.)Edited by Raghar - 8/30/16 at 6:01pm
