    Threadripper or i9?

    there have been 128GB DDR4 modules for awhile, not ECC either just standard DDR4. I think the issue of nobody throwing together enough into a gaming PC to get to 1TB is just that they aren't sold in kits so performance would take a HUGE hit, not to mention the ridiculous price of doing so, it would cost more than the whole rest of the PC.

    it is a pretty nice looking board, though I like the Aorus lineup personally.

    Threadripper or i9?

    yeah but with overclocking the i9 comes such little performance gain that it isn't worth it, I wouldn't be overclocking an i9 anyways if I got it since 9980XE overclocking is not worth the extra 100 dollars I would have to spend on a PSU to make it work. (also there is an example of my inexperience, forgot about intel's TDP being like that)

    Threadripper or i9?

    so I have noticed something for awhile and never really looked into the specifics of it but, here I am. So, why in the world should I get a 2000 dollar i9 9980XE when the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX is 300 dollars less and has similar or ever so slightly worse single core speed and nearly TWICE the multi core speed. Now, the reason I never looked into this before is because I think both are overkill for anything and theres no reason I would ever need one ever since my workstation needs can be handle by something as weak as an A10. On top of this theres the issue of the near 2000 dollar price tag on both of these which doesnt seem worth it when the now 500 dollar 9900k has plenty of cores/threads and pretty good performance all around with little sacrifice to single core or multicore speed so I don't have to choose. But that was about a year ago, now I have enough money to put into something a stupid as a TR 2990WX so why the hell not. To my knowledge, heres the differences between the two processors (i made a little chart cause why not) I am very well aware that there is alot I missed here but thats why i'm here, cause I don't take everything into account or just lack the experience to comment on certain things Here are a few extra things. Since the threadripper is such a high watt CPU, more money needs to be put into a better PSU. Oh yes, i forgot PCIE lanes. 2990WX has 60 and 9980XE has 44 both have 4 memory channels (if only the threadripper had 8, AMD y u do dis ;-;) my reasoning for wanting 8 is pretty self explanatory, it would be much easier/cheaper to reach that 1TB of ram it "supports". (maybe with zen2 this will happen on a possible threadripper 3?) (actually on that note, has anybody even gotten 1TB of ram into a threadripper system?) getting off topic. (gross) okay so which should I get for the best workstation performance? which should I get for gaming? and what should I get for best all around? should I wait for zen2 to (probably) disappoint me just as the radeon VII did? And which do you think is a favorite among the pc enthusiast community? I know that the 9980XE was labeled as a rebrand of the 7980XE so its got some flak simply just because of that and the pants splitte- I mean threadripper is much more popular as far as marketshare goes, even when compared to the 7980XE, but there have to be some other opinions out ther and I would definitely like to hear it. (i'll probably do another post later today/tomorrow to talk about zen2 and what it may have in store for the threadripper and EPYC series of AMD CPUs) Sources: (mostly so I don't make myself look like an idiot) (also made it a spoiler since its got 4 youtube videos in it)

    also there shouldn't be any malware or anything on here, the hdd failed and I replaced it with and ssd about a month ago. Got a fresh copy of windows and redownloaded all my stuff. Only thing thats a bit sketch on here it some CPU management software like cpu core parking manager

    i was using my mouse at the time and then tried using the trackpad when the mouse wasn't working, neither did anything even when I unplugged the mouse.

    i already fully restored the laptop a little over a year and a half ago, been using it every since. I also already checked the ribbon cable and its seated properly
  12. so? the radiation is still there and still being emitted from the phone, doesn't matter where it come from just that it's there and it is at the manufacturers fault. exactly, i call people on my laptop of my desktop on discord most of the time and when i do call on my phone its video calls and not by my ear XD

    Lenovo g70-80 being weird

    I have a lenovo g70-80 that I got for uber cheap, screen was broken and it had no ram or HDD. I replaced it all and here it is nearly two years later working just fine until yesterday. Yesterday I was working on some of my college course stuff and I suddenly lost control of my cursor, it started moving around on its own and clicking seemingly random things.then It closed out of google chrome and then opened task manager so I immediately killed the power to the laptop by ejecting the battery since i haven't replaced the broken power button yet. I went and did a bit of research on what was happening but it was already about 1 AM and I had found nothing. So now i'm here trying to see if anybody knows what the hell is going on. I'm taking a look at the drivers I have installed to see if its that but so far I have come up with literally zero leads on whats happening. (typed this on the laptop by the way, keyboard doesn't seem to be effected and mouse isn't freaking out for now)
