@Solarion that's not my quote!

So we are going from memory latency, to de-lidding? rolleyes.gif Gotta find some reason to hate Intel.

Switching to NUMA mode isn't hard, but makes you question why you bought Threadripper in the first place if you need to throw a switch to disable/enbable things you really shouldn't have to in the first place.

No it doesn't! We aren't some teenager with a Macbook Air, needing it to work because we don't know tech. This is a high end platform!

Like other people have posted most people came from intel to x399. x58,x79,x99,x299 owner here. So yeah it aint about hating on intel. It's about enough crap is enough. I've been compromising with the damn 40 lanes for a while now. Now they want me to pay like 100% more for the top end extreme? No thanks.

That's because we have to many posers here who buy hardware just to show they have money even though they have no idea how to actually use it to it's full potential. Typical mindset is most likely it's new and has more cores so it must be better in every way!

We are already at the 1%. -_- More lanes does not, magically, make something better when only a handful of known people will use them to their full capacity.

"More lanes; the better"

This is false. Just like the old adage "The more cores; the better". Remember that fun phrase that got spouted ages ago? :V

(it's pretty clear you go X299 if you need the per core performance, and the inceeased memory bandwidth/latency, and X399 if you have some strange need for those extra lanes.)

*raises hands*

Intel 750, Samsung 950 Pro and Samsung XP941, and 10 Sata Drives in my x399,

I am not you, and you are not me in deciding what I want or need.

I usually buy top of the line hardware, I know I will realistically never leverage it on a general daily basis. I am personally building a threadripper PC, simply for having a new toy to play with. My main use of the my PC is gaming and multi-media. I by no means need this level of hardware and realistically with 4k gaming the cpu is virtually not a factor.

I dont know if you realize this or not, but this is and always has been an enthusiasts forum. Most of us here have historically been enthusiasts more so than professional use consumers. Realistically most of us that actually invest a good bit of money in our PCs do not leverage the hardware in them in meaningful ways.

I buy what I want to buy as I view my PC as an entertainment expense and a hobby. It has nothing to do with me 'showing' how much money I have or flaunting my success (or lack there of) in any way shape or form.

I honestly dont think you realize where you are at or what this forum represents. This is an enthusiasts forum, not a professional use forum. Its also important to note that the older enthusiasts here are considerably more knowledgeable than you seem to be aware of, regardless this is not the forum to expect for people to craft their build solely around intended use (otherwise most of us would very rarely rebuild our PCs).

Some serious projection going on here....kookoo.gif

I would *hope* I am not you, I would *hope* you are an adult, and I would *hope* you can make your own, completely rational, decisions based on what *you as a person* require from your computer.

A good chunk of the internet buying in to HEDT isn't, in some form, though.

(And, yes, I understand the enthusiast point. :V)
