You're welcome. Good luck on getting anything close to 4.8GHz on anything other than Intel. Poor gaming performance relative to what? The 1800x fared worse in almost every metric compared to the 7820x but didn't stop a lot of enthusiasts on this forum from gobbling them up at $500 a pop. Crazy, isn't it? And where's the 1800x now, one year after it's debut?Apart from very few samples can do 5ghz, 4.6-4.8 seems the typical maximum and that's consuming 250-400W and I don't want to use
liquid Nitrogen every day to cool it. As said above the platform is overly expensive and it's gaming performance isn't where I need it. Oh and it's neutered with 28PCIe lanes so hobbled. Intel's market segmentation, the need to always buy a new mobo when upgrading, the lack of PCIe lanes, cheaping out with TIM not solder are all reasons why I want AMD not Intel next. Apart from all
the glaringly obvious differences which amount to being not at all what I'm after you're right I could have got something quite different a year ago.
Thanks for the heads up!
