    Powerhouse for Blender.. Lots of cores

    Yeah.. BTW headache commend was Linus last word in that video! The system he built he actually tested blender and the 16c threadripper outpaced the 64c by a hearty margin! I think his comments avx and updated CPU is where it's important!

    Headache factor.. I like the idea of seeing if AMD would do a 16c AM4 Otherwise I might bite the bullet and go a 32c threadripper when 64c come out.. Price should drop

    Powerhouse for Blender.. Lots of cores

    Blender works magically with GPUs.. Especially with new compiler.. It uses all GPUs and all threads.. and set the tiles to 16x16 it frighten nuts.. Having a mega core rig would be insane.. as I actually see the CPU cores make a big difference!
  6. Hey all. I am looking for an inexpensive way at building a system for blender. Currently running Ryzen 1700 8c with 3x 780ti GPU I am looking at something with at least 2x the core count maybe 4x if possible. I'd still need the 3x PCIe slots. Does anyone have any recommendations into what would be a good buy? Like an old server perhaps? Inexpensive as possible as I forsee issues getting it to work properly... Or would a amd threadripper be the best choice.. tho I consider it expensive! Thanks for reading

    NEW Intel 660p 512GB lagging my laptop.

    The Thing is, this drive would be fine for the average joe.. play a game here or there, browse porn, etc... But being well I guess a power user.. not ideal for me.. having chrome open with 20 tabs is common as is running shit loads of apps. i am kind of shooting myself in the foot I seen the 970evo 500gb for $139 here in australia a week ago on ebay promo.. I got the stupid intel for $130 A little annoyed..

    NEW Intel 660p 512GB lagging my laptop.

    The laptop has 24GB of ram (8+16) 2400mhz used was around 4.8 went to about 7GB or so.. so maybe 2gb worth of cache ram caching to help the hdd going at full speed.. ive decided to get an evo.. I am absolutely seeing the performance drop just like linus seen with his test

    NEW Intel 660p 512GB lagging my laptop.

    thanks for the replies guys, Can I ask would a samsung evo fall into the same troubles or should I bite the bullet and spend bigger on a pro my option would be a 500GB 970 EVO or a 512GB 970 PRO.. if I go a 970PRO then the price for the 1TB 970 EVO is similar and would consider the 970evo. 1TB but like I said I have a tight budget

    Trying to pick 2TB of storage for new build

    I have helped a few clients by doing caching. maybe consider it? but a HIGH END 5+TB HDD and use something like primocache. first time use of data is slow until it's cached.. and having a large pool like 100-250GB of cache is pretty plenty!?! how many games and items can you play at the same time!?!
  12. Hi All, I am hoping to get some advise for my laptop, I have a i7 8750H 6core with gtx 1060, It has a seagate 2TB 2.5" HDD and a 512GB SSD (intel 660p) Intel SSD 6 Series 512GB Link The ssd is new, I just upgraded the laptop from using only a HDD and after reinstalling windows etc. I am just not satisfied with the performance. When I started copying the games from 2TB to the SSD, I noticed it would go at speed of the HDD's max (approx 100-130MB/s) after a while you see the windows memory start increasing slightly (cache hitting) SSD Write performance is below what the HDD can do! after a minute or two of writing, the system becomes laggy, mouse jerks, cannot open apps.. and ssd is struggling to do all this at the same time, I understand the ssd is mainstream, and thought performance would have to be better than this. task manager clocks the drive at constant write 48-52MB/s while this happens Area of concern is the device manager has a device called nvme storage controller, It's using a standard Microsoft driver. I tried to install the intel driver for the 760p and it didnt help.. so I am now wanting to buy a Samsung evo 970 500gb.. to avoid the performance woes i might even go PRO! Main reason is they have a nvme driver for the drive. can anyone shed some light here? would the intel 660p 512gb really not be able to sustain 100mb/s+ they advertise these nvme drives as 1000+MB/s What the hell! I just dont know if this is a waste of time... attached is 4 disk marks.. showing various performance with different test sizes.. seeing the 8gb file test drops perf considerably Eagerly await your responses, Thank-you, Shaun.
