fair enough. I wasn't too informed with that release, because I was still happily crushing noobs with my Athlon 64 SD chip for at least a year at that point, completely oblivious to whatever else was going on, because I didn't care.2006. You wouldn't believe the number of people who claimed that Conroe's huge-for-the-time L2 cache was somehow cheating.
Ha! Conroe is my faultfair enough. I wasn't too informed with that release, because I was still happily crushing noobs with my Athlon 64 SD chip for at least a year at that point, completely oblivious to whatever else was going on, because I didn't care.
I still run an Antec 430W "earthwatts" PS, (2009), took it out about a month ago, did a complete cleaning and inspection, no bulging caps or other issues. Still using an E5450@3.9Ghz but I think the Ryzen 5 1600 at a stupid price of $100 is going to finally have me upgrade.Ha! Conroe is my fault
I literally just saved up and built :
Nforce s939 (Epox?)
Athlon X2 4400+ (Toledo I think)
Thermalright Copper HSF etc9500
4x1GB DDR400 CL2
DVDRW (wooohoooo lol)
SB Audigy something with front panel
Lian Li aluminum case
Antec 500W PSU (this lasted like 15 years!)
Some SATA HDD and a couple of IDE drives, don't recall details
Windows XP of course
And blammo, Conroe made it look kind of dumpy shortly thereafter. It was my shop PC though, so it was pretty easy to resell, it looked awesome for the time.
Depends on the definition of "they". A blanket suggestion of PCIe 4 working on older boards was never going to work. As we can see with the ASUS Strix boards any use of PCIe 3 switches will prevent PCIe 4 to work. By AMD withdrawing the promise for PCIe 4 compatibility for older boards but keeping open the possibility for board manufacturers the latter now can give detailed lists what works where if they want, like ASUS just did. Gigabyte indicated that's going to happen even before the launch.Guess that they needed some time to tests the MBs that could do it, hence why they back tracked on the compatibilty..
it is somewhere here, we already discussed it
Wow,and you seriously are a moderator on this forum?You just can't admit that AMD has a good product, excuses, excuses....You need to wake up and smell the roses, or in this case, the Ryzens.
the tests with DDR4 2666 for Intel lineup/ryzen 2 lineup should be negated at once
Fallout 76 is the newest game that uses the Creation engine.Is anyone aware of benchmarks done with regards to Fallout 4 or even Skyrim (or SE)? I'm guessing all major reviewers have likely all dropped them by now and it may need to be even just user sources.
Would be interesting to see a revisit of the testing data done by users on these forums from this series - https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/part-3-measuring-cpu-draw-call-performance-in-fallout-4.2548618/
It's a nice thought, but it isn't likely to happen. Summit Ridge got tested with DDR4-2133 many times, and some of those results are STILL out there. Only update is that re-testing done when the 2700x came out often had Summit Ridge with faster RAM (usually DDR4-2933).the tests with DDR4 2666 for Intel lineup/ryzen 2 lineup should be negated at once
Fallout 4 still likely has more people playing it.Fallout 76 is the newest game that uses the Creation engine.
I am the author. I cannot hit that 4800~4900 range without ASUS' MultiCore Enhancement, which as far as I'm aware goes outside of Intel's spec to overclock the CPU.it is somewhere here, we already discussed it
good selection of test, the only thing that seems not right is the 9900K scores- because even the cinebench r20 is too low in 4300 level not in 4800-4900 level
I have similar charts I've made myself. Not as comprehensive, though.
