    Ryzen 9 config for gstreamer

    The only remaining thing would be to find some PCI 4 ssd with crazy read speed like the one @brob posted but with less than 1TB and at less than 250$ price

    Very well, thank you very much.

    Nothing at the moment, actually. They are probably closed for holydays so they did not stock anything with x570. They only list ASUS and MSI motherboards. Don't ask me why, they used to have quite everything. I think that they will probably restock in a couple of weeks so it will be better if I understand how to select a proper motherboard by specs.

    Ryzen 9 config for gstreamer

    Ok thanks. I've got a couple of questions. My preferred supplier is restocking and they have limited selection of motherboards and RAM. That will probably change in a couple of weeks or I could use another supplier, but heh, would be nice to have alternatives. For the motherboard, would any X570 equipped model with SLI support be reasonably ok? Same for the RAM. Would, say, 8GB XPG GAMMIX D10 DDR4 3000MHZ be fine? Thanks again.

    Well, I might need any extra speed I can get in case of some crazy resolution raw or prores video, so...

    Ryzen 9 config for gstreamer

    I need to build a powerful pc dedicated to very high resolution video playback and realtime manipulation via gstreamer. Most of these tasks should benefit from high core count so I'm oriented to Ryzen, specifically Ryzen 9 3900x since it's quite cheaper than threadripper 2 and I don't think I really need 32c/64t at the moment. Problem is that I don't know jack about AMD current ecosystem. I need to select a motherboard, a compatible and decent type of RAM (16 gb with option to add 16 more at least) and a proper cooler. Overclocking is entirely off the table and the thing should be easy and fast to build, so no liquid cooler. I need a decent air cooling solution. The machine will need to be moved around, so if it's not the heaviest heatsink on the market it's better (since I'm afraid it might break the mounting). I don't need the fanciest motherboard, because no overclock, and I don't need RGB of course. Thunderbolt would be appreciated. The machine will be equipped with a couple of quadro cards in the future, so multiple pcix slots and SLI/NVLINK support is needed on the motherboard, plus a beefy enough psu. I don't need to include a video card in the build (I already have some quadros around). I need fast storage, but not much of it. I was thinking about Samsung 970 EVO PLUS, 250GB. If there's faster storage available, I will consider it. I actually only need 120GB top. (optane is a bit overkill i think). If someone knows about a spacious case that has good airflow but is LIGHT, it would be appreciated. I don't care how it looks. (actually, it's better if it is ugly, since it means that the thing will be less likely to be stolen...) I have a warehouse full of monitors, keyboards, mice etc so no other peripherals are needed. Budget limit should be around 2000$, but of course the less it costs the better it is. Thanks to anyone for the help.

    Apple is misundertanding the "pro" market

    Or, as I just said, my mind didn't consider the apple discount relevant because it's negligible. So I didn't mention it and when someone pointed to it later, I explained it. Again, your point?
  8. Riccardo Cagnasso

    Apple is misundertanding the "pro" market

    Yeah. Meaning that apple won't do 25-30-35-40% discounts on their hardware. The sentence was ambiguous and then i corrected it. Your point?

    Apple is misundertanding the "pro" market

    I'm comparing to the LOWEST mac pro. A Lenovo Thinkstation with a Xeon W-2133, 32 GB ECC, 512 GB SSD, Quadro P4000 8GB (which should be quote more powerful that the Radeon Pro 580X) is 2500$. Le'ts throw in 500$ for the new, same level xeon of the mac pro (which will probably come at the same price, but whatever). It's 3000$ for the same machine! From the lenovo site. Even if I'm lying about the fact that lenovo workstation have better discount wholesale, it's still 2000$+ less that the identically specced macpro.

    Lol no. I have said that apple corporate discount are neglibile. That means that I acknowledged they exists. You are here accusing me of lying and yeat you don't really seem to have read what i'm saying.

    Apple is misundertanding the "pro" market

    I never said that third-party suppliers don't sell apple. Two of my three suppliers sell apple stuff and I have bought some in the past. I never said that Apple doesn't do corporate discount. I've said that for what I can see, discount on Apple hardware is "negligible", < 10%, up to tens of units. Don't know about hundreds. And if you know how the whole wholesale business work, you know perfectly well that I cannot just take a screenshot of the listing prices and post it here. So, convenient or not, this is the truth.

    Fine, believe what you want. I'm here lying about the fact that workstation grade computers have ~25% discount from list pricing from wholesale suppliers. I think that it would be the most boring trolling ever, but fine. I cannot prove it of course because these are somewhat relatively confidential information. So, whatever.

    No it's not. It's kinda part of my job, you know?

    Why do I have to repeat the same answer again and again and again? I have three huge wholesale distributor price lists in front of me right now. Trust me.

    And what time (or even real time) abilities will the mac pro have compared to a windows workstation with identical hardware that costs half the price? Also, I'm comparing the lower end one.
