hey, i want to build a mini itx and was looking at the 3950x to run 2x 8 core pc. 1x normal gaming rig and the other one to run a couple of server, but i was wondering if the second one had to have a gpu too or if i could control it without one. cause if it need one i need to give up either the 2 pc idea or the mini itx one :/

theres no such thing as a single cpu running two seperate machines , it's only a single socket chip thus it only goes in one board

Assuming you want to do all this with virtualization, yes. You "need" one graphics output per OS. 

You can get around this with headless software (Proxmox, Freenas, etc), but you need a graphics output to set it up. 


Fine you want the PSU tier list? Have the PSU tier list: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1116640-psu-tier-list-40-rev-103/

If you don't mind virtualizing the servers you can use it in one PC. The only downside would be being unable to turn it off. AKA if you run them as VMs then your idea would work.

Uh, That's what virtualization is.

I believe you can do this with unRaid. If you used UnRaid, you only need one VM, since UnRaid is server software.

 

LTT Actually has an excellent video on what you're trying to achieve, although you may want to pick up an NVIDIA GT710 to use for UnRaid, as the 3950X does not have an iGPU to push unRaid, and use another GPU to passthrough to windows.

 


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / Dell P2210 1680x1050 @ 70Hz (OC)

have you ever watched the 7 gamers 1 CPU video? That's what hes asking to do something similar with.

@gaua24 you can run a hypervisor on the bare metal and assign your graphics card to your main thing if you only need remote SSH access into the VMs.

@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

Virtualization isn't a single chip running two machines , it's a single chip on a single machine running two operating systems.

Sure you can stack as many os's on top of each other as you like but that isn't what they asked.

this config here is what they are asking about. and the chip can't be split like this from a hardware level between two machines.

You can do it as a single pc and just set affinity in software while emulating another pc but thats about it.

thanks, i didn't know what was a hypervisor :P
