Also waiting for the Ryzen3/4000 chips.
I need fastest single core with low heat low latency. Which is why I’ve been using i7 4790k’s, just popped in my last NOS/NIB chip last summer.
6700/7700/8700/9700k’s all great CPU’s but in single core use not much better than my 47’s.
Same old 14nm with more cores, more heat more latency.
Not good for 1U builds.
3700X is a decent chip, runs cool @65 watts, but unsynced DRAM for anything under 3733 MHz. Again adding heat for the sweet spot.
Dr. Lisa says IF will be tweaked and a unified cache will come in Ryzen3.
That’s worth waiting for.
Tiger Lake will be fighting Ryzen 3.
This is going to be good for us.
I’m not gaming, but real-time audio number crunching at lowest possible latency.
Software is still reliant on single core mostly.
Great though that the software has to catch up.
Been doing this since CPUs we’re behind, and 10k SCSI Cheetahs were the rulers.
Poor software guys struggling to address 32 threads these days....
Exciting times for us.
