    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    Ya true that. Who knows though, Ryzen 3000 may not even get PCIE 4.0 on the mobos. I know Ryzen 3000 will have the first CPUs to support the new PCIE 4.0 standard but that doesn't necessarily mean we need 4.0 yet. Also, if Im remembering correctly, there was an article a while back that stated PCIE 4.0 was still a couple years out anyways and that even today we are not coming anywhere even close to maxing out PCIE 3.0 bandwith, we havent even maxed out 2.0 yet!

    Im now wondering if second gen sTR4 Socket Motherboards will finally arrive. I always found it wierd that second gen Threadripper was never followed by new motherboards.

    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    I wasnt referring to them being able to make an unlimited about of cores but rather that they could come up with any sort of weird number of cores such as even a 9-core or an 11-core. Its just that it wouldnt make any sense to do so as you would need to purposely combine a bunch of defective cores with an eneven amount of good cores on a die joined by infinity fabric, which would just cost way more than the profit would yield compared to products that are already on the market. To be honest though, massive core count isnt too far out of reach these days. Threadripper already has 32 cores, it wouldnt be too hard for them to build a 64-Core chip on 7nm. Is there a reason to even build such an expensive chip? Probably not, there isnt really going to be a need for such a CPU, but Im sure its possible. 128 Cores on a single CPU seems to be out of reach for awhile due to the 7nm barrier, but perhaps 10+ years in the future it will become a reality.

    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    Agreed, technically either AMD or Intel can make as many cores as they want, but it would pretty much make them not very viable on the market. Maybe Ill just build a 12-Core threadripper machine in 2020 and just bite the money bullet.

    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    True that but I am fairly certain AMD would not consider a 12-Core CPU for the Ryzen 7 batch. Pretty sure 12+ Core will remain as Threadripper SKUs for some time to come.

    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    Well thats a pain. I was unaware if this limitation. 10 cores would be perfect!

    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    Im hoping for a solid 10-Core/20-Thread option from Ryzen 7 this time around. Im thinking that with the 7nm transistors it shouldnt be too difficult to offer one.

    Ryzen 3000 Chiplet Socket

    Would make total sense, safe assumption Regardless if you ever wanted to build a craptastically overpowered AMD rig that will last for many years to come, it looks like the time is soon to be upon us I may still wait until 2020 and AMD releases a matured 7nm Chip where all the kinks and bugs are worked out and efficency is top-notch. In other words: 2020 should be when Zen 2+ refined and perfected 7nm tech comes out.
  9. If you do decide you want to water cool, I would suggest that you don't waste your time on an AIO. Tests have shown that nearly all 240mm AIOs can be beaten in cooling performance by a high-end twin-tower air cooler so long as said cooler has some decent, high static pressure fans and has access to lots of fresh, cool intake air. If you want to water cool properly, go full high-end custom loop with multiple rads and GPU cooling to boot. Its expensive, but in return you will have one of the coolest looking rigs on the planet and due to extreme cooling performance, you can load all your hardware to 100% using benchmarks and still have the rig next to silent. I have one of the most powerful air-cooled rigs out there (in terms of airflow and cooling performance, I do NOT have a mega CPU or GPU) so check out my build here for inspiration: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/900350-the-zen-of-huayra-tata-ultimate-air-cooling-build/

    In case nobody else knows of the information we are referring to, we are of course talking in regards to AMD's official announcement of Ryzen 3000 at CES: https://youtu.be/Jc7lqFaTvPo Now I fully believe this benchmark could in fact be a midrange Ryzen 3000 that is going up against one of Intels strongest desktop chips. But how is this possible? 7nm vs 14nm, its that simple. AMD CEO Lisa Su clearly states in the video that the new Ryzen 3000 chips are 7nm-based. This means twice the transistor capacity per square mm than the Intel counterpart, and we all know that more transistors (of course amongst other things) leads to more performance. I also fully believe the released market chips will be just as fast, if not faster. Remember the original Ryzen 1000 launch? The demo clock speeds were actually slightly lower than the final product, simply because AMD had the time to finalize the design before the official launch. Whats even more interesting, however, is that this launch marks the beginning of the end. Computer Scientists are still struggling to find a physically possible way to create 5nm-based CPUs that actually functions and can dissapate heat ina realistic fashion, even right now. It has been previously stated by said scientists that after 7nm, we will be forced to fundamentally rethink the CPU and technologies behind computers all together before CPUs can get any faster. Some reports say that other than classified military technologies, we will be stuck in stagnation where we are for the next 5-10 years while a solution is found. Some people even say 20+ years or until software catches up and most everyday programs and games can actually take full advantage of a 16+ thread CPUs performance, because as most of you are probably aware, most people dont even use half of a modern high-performance CPU's potential, ever in their lives. You might find that some applications load all threads but not to 100% while others will load threads to 100% but not all of them at once. This is of course excluding synthetic benchmarks. The most logical next step is quantum computing but if you have seen Linus's video where he visits a quantum computing facility, Star Trek is more likely to become a reality than getting this kind of technology small and affordable enough to get into our homes and everyday lives. This 7nm release is actually quite alot earlier than I first predicted in my thread that discussed the "7nm barrier". I always imagined it would not happen until late 2020 - early 2021. Thread here:

    Need a solution to shorting charging cables

    Ive seen Anker products. While they do seem genuinely high quality, they dont really offer what I am looking for. Besides apparently dash charge only works with the OnePlus official cable ^ so that kinda ruins the whole idea for me lol.

    Need a solution to shorting charging cables

    Oh man really? Thats a pain lol. Strange that I can't just replace the cable with a cable capable of 4 amps or more and have it work. Well I may have to just deal with 2.4 Amps charge rate then because OnePlus official cables are far too expensive for what they are.

    The State of Affairs Concerning Display Output from Android

    Well the thing is that you sort of answered your own question already: Currently there is no standard for who impliments what features on a phone, so you kinda just have to pick the right phone to get the features you want. - Qualcomm and other SOC manufacturers are the ones who make these features possible. It doesnt matter if Sony or Samsung wants to make a device with display output modes if the SOC is incapable of it. - From there, you have the manufacturer (so Sony or Samsung itself) that chooses whether or not these features will be implimented. Hey man, Chromecast is awesome, I would be happy to receive one for holiday. Also, if you want a more extravagant gift capable of using the feature then go for a new TV for holiday. My Samsung MU6500 50" Curved Glass, Smart, 4K TV has Chromecast built in and it is an amazing TV.

    The State of Affairs Concerning Display Output from Android

    Not only do these problems exist but if you need to replace your cable you have to be quite careful in when choosing an aftermarket cable. These days cables have different amperage ratings, different USB generation ratings, and some are designed for display adaptation while others simply cannot do the job. To be honest, I have given up on the idea of a display cable adapter for mobile devices all together. Besides, USB to HDMI cables are rediculously expensive and there are far better solutions such as simply ensuring you buy a smart type TV or simply use Google Cast
  15. So Im a truck driver and every day when I am done driving I have to unplug my cables and fold them up and put them away so my partner can hook up his cables to the truck. Unsurprisingly, I am having to replace cables every 6-8 weeks due to shorting and failure of the cables. I own the OnePlus 6, a Triple-18650 Box Mod Electronic cigarette, and a hands-free buetooth headset that all have to be charged on the go, plus I need and aux 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable to plug my phone into the stereo so I can listen to music. I need a set of charging cables that can withstand the punishment if being stepped on, accidentally being ripped out, and being folded up and stuffed into a small pocket daily. Here is the summary of all the cables I need: 1 X 3-4 foot Type A to Type C Cable, USB 3.1 capable, 5.0V/4.0A/20W Oneplus Dash Charge Capable 1 X 3-4 foot Type A to Micro USB Cable, highest data transfer rate and highest amp delivery possible 1 X 5-6 foot Type A to Micro USB Cable, highest data transfer rate and highest amp delivery possible 1 X 3-4 foot Auxiliary 3.5mm to 3.5mm (headphone jack) cable, highest audio quality possible I have heard rumors of a company that has recently started designing kevlar-reinforced charging cables that sound awesome, however my attempts to search for it on the internet have been unsuccessful. If anyone has any trusted super tough cables they swear on, I would appreciate the suggestion. Thanks guys, hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!
