    Because we hit a plateau of "feels faster" for daily tasks around 2012.
     
    If you do any compute intensive work, there have been pretty massive increases in performance.
     
    Games do not really count as intense work for a CPU anymore.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from paddy-stone in Is the Pi 4 Worth it?   
    The Pi3 is anemic.  Not just because of the CPU/RAM, but because of the Ethernet and USB limitations.
     
    The USB3 and GbE are 100% worth it in any kind of use case that hits the HDD/storage/network with any kind of intensity.

    I came from a Gigabyte 990FX-UD7, a $300 board when it was new.  The CPU choked with SLI/Crossfire so bad it wasnt even funny.  FX would have been fine if Intel had just released a clock boosted Core 2 type of chip, but by the time FX launched 2nd gen i7s were available.  It was two years too late for what it was.
     
    If FX launched in place of the Phenom II x6, it wouldnt look so bad.  But that is not what happened.

    Same multicore, 50% better single core.  For the price, the risk is acceptable.  $50 E3 Xeon CPU and $35 H61 motherboard, stole the ram from the FX rig and mothballed it.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Quadriplegic in What does an out-dated CPU Exactly mean?   
    I have yet to run into anyone with an FX that is still happy with it.  I mean, it reduces the performance of my RX 560 in many, if not most, cases.  Even clocked up to 5.1ghz.  A used Sandy Bridge Xeon is a significant upgrade at ~$125 total upgrade cost, and you dont even need to overclock it.
     
    Granted, FX was obsolete when it launched.
     
    The problem with FX now is that you are going to have a hard time getting a MB that wont catch fire under full load.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Turtle Rig in 4k with i6 6700k   
    CPU doesnt matter nearly as much if you are pushing 4k.  A 2600k would be sufficient in most cases because much of the load is on the GPU.
     
    But if you have 2080 Ti money, you are going to have a better CPU, so...

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Mister Woof in What does an out-dated CPU Exactly mean?   
    More like 25-50 FPS.  The minimums are a real problem with FX.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from gbergeron in Is gtx1070 mini a good choice for 2600k?   
    1070 is a bit overpowered for a 2600k.  Running an RX 470 on a 4.5ghz 2600k and still run into CPU limitations in quite a few cases.
     
    If you are using 2560x1440 or above it would be a decent fit.

    By being a cheapass, and doing work for people that are cheapasses. ?
     
    In 2016 I picked up a then current model i5+1050 ti laptop for like $650, it was a return because the original buyer wasnt happy with a 256gb SSD.  Just put time and effort into actually looking through products available.  With the advent of Amazon and other similar places this is much easier than scouring through used computers at pawn shops and PC repair shops.

    This has to be the most strange phenomenon. This issue for me started Early December of 2018, but it seems to occur randomly. Sadly once it starts, it’s impossible to get rid of. Let me bust a few facts real quick, though.
     
     
    -Buying a new computer WON’T fix it. Every computer I got since it started has had the issue. Although, don’t let this trick you into thinking “Maybe it’s been there this whole time, and I’m just realizing it.” Trust me, it hasn’t. You’re just like the rest of us, it happened overnight. Don’t let ANYONE tell you it’s in your head.
     
     
    -It seems to spread through electricity, somehow. For example, this occurred while I was living at my University. Even though it’s the summer and I’m home, it’s still here.
     
     
     
    -Updating your graphics driver/rolling them back will NOT fix it. Don’t let anyone try to suggest that either. It’s just a waste of time. This issue is a lot more complex then we know and needs PROFESSIONAL attention if we wanna HOPE that it gets solved.
     
     
    We need to gain the attention of people. So spread this forum on as many big tech youtubers as possible. It’s completely unfair that we pay hundreds to thousands of dollars for these devices to have to go through this, because to me, at least, it makes them unplayable!

    KarathKasun reacted to Mister Woof in Faster CPU but FPS stayed the same? GTX 1080 bottleneck?   
    probably comparing them to 4/4 i5's or 4/8 i7's.
     
    in those cases, their resources are being maxed out.
     
    you can still have a CPU bottleneck on your 1700x at 30% - not all games are able to utilize all of your cores, but the cores they do use are getting hammered.
     
    My 8700k rarely sees over 30% usage either in gaming, and yet even so, it can absolutely be a bottleneck in some games even at 25%.

    Wow awesome thank you!!! I'm gonna look around a bit too just to make sure there's nothing extra I need/want but thats definitely a solid choice and it'll give me some extra room in my budget!

    If you are not getting a CPU strictly for gaming, get the same priced AMD chip.  Tiny bit behind in gaming, way ahead in other things... especially on the video side of things.
     
    CPU compatibility issues havent been an issue with a new CPU for a decade or more, unless you count first gen Ryzen being kinda picky about memory if going above ~2400 at launch.
     
    If you count feature checkboxes, Ryzen is ahead currently as it supports PCIe 4.0.  5GB/s SSD transfers are possible because of this, up from 2.5GB/s.

    If you dont need anything extra built into the MB, thats about as good as it gets.  Strong VRM, no frills.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Mikensan in Poor Performance to Samba share with Windows Server 2016 Essentials   
    Wired ethernet does not work that way by default.  With minimal QoS, which is pretty universally supported, when both PCs access the network over GbE their speed will be 500mbit.
     
    No guesswork, you connect media, IoT, and other low bandwidth devices like printers, tablets, and phones up to one AP and computers or high bandwidth devices to the other.  Because both AP's share the same wired back end network, all devices behave as if they are on the same network.  Think of multiple dumb APs as having multiple hubs connected to the same network.  All devices on one hub/AP share the same bandwidth pool.
     
    In an ideal world, your in home server connection will not share any common route that leads to the internet.  That way if one device is doing heavy lifting on the server, you dont crap out the other connections.  This would mean that the AP used for the server connection should be on its own port of your primary switch.  OR, you can connect the server directly to the switch integrated with that AP.  In which case you could bang away at the server and no other connection would ever know about it.
     
    I would have to MSPaint some example topologies to really make what I am saying clear I think.
