Swap from Intel 7980xe to 2990wx?
Thinking of switching from my Intel 7980xe to the 2990wx. I run a large farming setup in a video game and need to run as many clients as possible. When I got the 7980xe it was clearly the best choice.
I need cores, but I also need gpus, and I need stability. Crashing cost me money, I know these are consumer chips and it will happen eventually but once a month is acceptable, once a week is not.
Current setup is
7980xe was OCing to 4ghz all cores but crashing every 3-7 days caused me to reset it back to stock.
2x 1080ti SLI
I don't think I want to do a complete rebuild right now. So I was thinking of just replacing the CPU, MB, Video cards and whatever water cooling changes needed.
2990wx (I am not sure if I will OC or not, if I can keep it stable I would do something like 3.6ghz across all cores)
Gigabyte - X399 AORUS XTREME (I need this for the 4x crossfire support)
4x Vega 56 Crossfire
I am running 40-100 clients of this game, so multi gpu is important along with cpu cores. SLI works great, if I could I was 4x sli but nothing supports it anymore. Its why I am thinking of going the 4x crossfire route with cheaper cards.
