  1. Again, CPUs arent everything - the spinning rust in this machine takes forever to boot - replacing with a SATA SSD would be an option, but i'd much prefer to throw an NVMe at it - I'd also like to put more than 8 GB of single-channel RAM in it (the shitty Dell mobo only has one memory slot). Oh, and a socket that I wont have to replace when I upgrade CPUs again in a few years will be nice (it seems intel keeps redesigning sockets - BAD for upgrades). It's the features that come in a new computer that i'm looking for - I dont want to bandaid a 4 year old pre-built dell PoS.
  2. Work Machine does not equal "budget gaming rig" - I'd do it for the NVMe boot drive that I could put in it as well as the 16GB of fast RAM. Neither this future machine i'm talking about nor the Dell OptiPlex that currently sits under my desk will ever have a game on them. ...but I forgot this is the LTT forum and all we care about are frame rates and K-SKUs
  3. I am absolutely going to build myself a work machine with a 2400G. itll be a HUGE upgrade from my i7-4790 + Intel HD Graphics 4600
  4. InB4 @LinusTech compares it to an incomparable (and overpriced) intel chip and then recommends you buy the intel part. Really though, these will be awesome for people who want a budget gaming build - the specs people are listing out really put this thing as a one-stop-shop for games that arent hyper-demanding and even have the makings of a great basic workplace CPU (APU) Post sponsored by Intel
  5. @LinusTech I need a new CPU with as many cores/threads as I can get in my desktop for my multiple VMs as well as DaVinci Resolve, but I want my best bang for my buck... What proc would you suggest?
  6. Linus and Luke are just flaming about the threadripper mining affecting gamers - any gamer who buys a threadripper has more money than sense and will never use all of the power in that chip. That being said, to the people who say this will "trickle down and make the Ryzen 7,5,3 chips more expensive" - they wont be profitable, so miners wont buy them like crazy.
  7. 2 cents here: I agree that Intel or AMD *can* buy a video from LTT, but I think its kind of shitty for LTT to accept that offer... I know business is business, but I can't be the only one here or on the youtube channel who follows LTT for their unbiased or accurate reviews. These videos distort those opinions, reviews, and accuracy and I just don't like it. LTT does this too often now to be a trustworthy source of information. I know there's going to be a hundred "ok bye" or "Dont let the door hit you on the way out" comments, but i'm done with LTT. I sincerely hope they either go back to reviewing things in an unbiased manner so they can be trustworthy again or they fail miserably. /rant /subscription
  8. I'm assuming you're looking at this through a gamer's eyes... this is an enterprise product, and those top three names on that slide own a VERY substantial majority of the enterprise compute market share. so it may be unimpressive to you, a gamer, but when a SysAdmin or CIO sees that AMD has partnered with these companies (which, for many years shuttered their AMD business or at least put it on the back burner), their ears perk up.
  9. No - Just like not all rectangles are squares, not all USB-C is thunderbolt.
  10. agreed - too much obviously scripted humor. apart from that, it's pretty damn good. as Jeremy Clarkson said, its TopGear in witness protection.
  11. Built my gaming rig for Overwatch - daily driver is still (though not for long) a MacBook Pro.
  12. @Blake is right - Support is 99% of the reason enterprise/businesses don't build their own machines/solutions. It is a better investment than building your own and hoping it doesn't crash.
  13. I'd go Sophos UTM - it's L7 (unlike pfSense) and I've had some bad experiences with pfSense as an enterprise solution (I'm assuming you're an enterprise considering you're running ESXi and a SonicWall)
  14. I'm just going to assume that since he's talking about this in the LTT forum and not his hypervisor/sonicwall forum/support that he doesn't have the money for NSX or any other vSphere licensing...let alone XenServer XAXD licensing or HyperV enterprise licensing hahaha
