    MMKing got a reaction from LienusLateTips in Intel CPU and cooling recommendation   
    If you're in the High End desktop segment. Your latest and greatest from Intel is the 18 core 9980XE, at an MSRP of 1700USD. If you want to go above this, you're in the server segment on the LGA3647 socket, with the Xeon W-3175X 28 core option for about 3000USD MSRP. The 9980 support 128GB, 2666mhz memory. The Xeon supports 512GB 2666mhz memory. You can likely clock it higher, though not much higher if you max out the memory capacity.
     
    Alternatively, you can get a 32 core 2990WX from AMD for about 1800 USD. Supporting 128GB memory at 2966MHZ. Note that the 2990WX consist of two CPUs on the same die. In certain applications, this is not a problem and Intel is left in a ditch. In other applications, the latency between the CPUs can cause somewhat reduced performance.
     
    If 32 cores is not enough, AMD does offer the 7742 Epyc 64 core for about 7500USD. If your applications can even make use of 64 cores, this is as good as it gets right now unless you're buying on behalf of Google, Facebook or other giant companies. The CPU supports up to 4TB memory, at 3200mhz. But i don't think there are motherboards supporting this memory capacity AND frequency.
     
    You can also take a look at the 16 core AMD 3950x launching in september for about 750USD. I got the 12 core variant myself and i'm very happy with it, even though you seem to need the cores much more than i do. It supports 3200mhz memory, up to 128GB i believe.
     
     
    Basically, Intel attempted an extremely ambitious jump from 14nm to 10nm all the way back in 2014. Slated for release in 2016/2017. As of 2019, they have yet to deliver and the rumor mill has it that even after 2-3 years of delays they are not close to full 10nm production. What they have produced have been lower power mobile chips, at best, performing marginally better than their 14nm CPUs.
     
    At best they will lose some market through 2019 and 2020. At worst, they won't be competitive in the extremely lucrative server segment for several years. Resulting in a downward spiral of revenue loss and mounting debt affecting them for the better part of a decade to come. This doom-saying have yet to materialize however, even though AMD started competing again in 2017. Intel still increased it's yearly revenue in 2017 and 2018.

    MMKing got a reaction from BelgianNoise in Cooling my 3900X   
    Custom fan settings
     
    I have my 3900x in a Corsair 500D, which is a mediocre case when it comes to thermals but i didn't get it for the thermal performance. I use a Corsair H150i with 6*120mm fans. With another 120mm fan in the back and two 140mm fans at the top of the case. My PSU draws power from the case, though i can only do this because my PSU is total overkill for my system.
     
    At 4.3GHZ all core, 1.4125 volt.
    Max fan speed, about 1750rpm on the 120mm fans and about 1400rpm on the 140mm fans. My CPU sits at around 78-80 degrees C. For workloads requiring fewer cores, such as gaming. I get away with the ''quiet'' setting. Lowering fan RPM to about 700, barely audible.

    ''For the most part, the 14nm++++++++++++ parts seem to be better than the 10nm parts, they consume less power, have more cores and clock higher.''
     
    That is a fancy way of saying
     
    The 10nm is worse than the 14nm++, 10nm consumes more power, have fewer cores and clocks lower.

    Double Data Rate
     
    Your bios shows the bit rate, which is 2 times the frequency with double data rate. I.e two bits gets transferred per cycle. While the CPU-Z shows the actual cycle rate.

    MMKing got a reaction from Schnoz in Is Intel in 2019 = AMD in the early 2010s?   
    It's difficult to say, but i would say AMD was in a worse situation. And it will take at least a couple more years for Intel to start losing, but here is the thing. Due to Intel owning all of their own equipment, factories, fabrications, labs and all the other infrastructure. There is no painless way for Intel to scale back, huge parts of the company is integrated. You can't close down 10% of it, not in a week or half a year.
     
    Then again, revenue for 2018 is still up compared to revenue for 2017. Intel is not losing money, they are as profitable as ever. But Intel did report a debt of 25.09 billion USD per June 2019, representing about 1/3 the company's equity. Right now, this is a tolerable situation for Intel. They have debt, but they have more than enough money to pay off said debt.
     
    Meanwhile, AMD has a total debt of 1.9 billion USD. Representing about 54% of their equity.
     
    This whole situation, beginning with Ryzen in the first quarter of 2017. Could be the very first signs of Intel catastrophically collapsing, akin to how giants such Kodak collapsed in the 1980s onward. Where sales fail, parts of the company is sold off or closed while debt continues to mount.
     
    More likely, Intel will have a few years of lower profitability and at worst a slight loss in revenue a year or two. But it's unlikely Intel will go in the negative, and be forced to borrow money to maintain their company.

    MMKing got a reaction from Lurick in Ryzen threadripper 1920x for gaming and future proofing?   
    My 12 core 3900x is easily beating the 16 core 1950x in cinebench 20. Checking out some reviews, the 8 core 3700x is not significantly behind the 1920x.
     
    The first generation threadripper is simply outdated, unless they are
    a) cheap (very)
    b) you require a large amount of pci-e lanes at a low cost.
    or c) You need to install allot of memory.
     
    For pure processing performance, they are not a good buy in 2019.

    MMKing got a reaction from Tequila628 in Ryzen 3700x vs i7 9700 for gaming?   
    ''This is the final rig for my friend, what do you think? 1477 $USD. Engineering work and gaming for 5+ years.''
     
    I was gonna say the 9700K will be superior to the 3700x in most games. But now that you added unspecified ''Engineering work'', i could easily imagine your friend benefiting from the superior multi-core performance of the 3700x over that of the 9700k for his profession.
     
    A 9900K will yield the best of both worlds, the gaming performance of the 9700k with the multi-core performance of the 3700x. But with the price point of the 3900x, which in turn is far superior in multi-core performance. It depends on what is important for your friend. But at current budget, the 3700x is my choice.

    MMKing got a reaction from Hemmen in Choosing ram for the first time build   
    I went with a G.skill 3200mhz CL14 (F4-3200C14D-16GTZR) for my 3900x build. I wish i could tell you more about it, but not unlike other people, my 3900x has yet to arrive. I plan on pushing them to 3800mhz, then setting the timings as tight as possible.
     
    Searching around, it seems G.skill is introducing a 3800mhz CL14-16-16-36 8gb * 2 in the near future.
    https://www.anandtech.com/show/14696/gskill-reveals-trident-z-neo-ddr43800-cl14-kit-for-amd-ryzen-3000
     
    I would not bet on this kit of RAM going for cheap. 3600mhz CL16 is already quite expensive.
     
    If there was any confusion as to what G.skill product letter suffixes actually mean.

    Cooling solution makes 0 difference unless the heat is moved out of the room. In fact, a more powerful cooler may allow the CPU to boost higher, consuming more power and generating more heat.

    Turbo boost: No
    Instruction set: 32 bit
     
    My guess regarding the issue with 32 and 64 bit. Is that Windows 7 64 bit, has the ability to handle 64 bit data, but does not actually require a 64 bit capable CPU to run itself. While windows 8 and up, actually requires a 64 bit capable CPU in order to even run. I'm not even sure why you would want to install 64 bit windows 10, as it serves no actual purpose. You cannot exceed 4GB of RAM, and your 32 bit CPU would not be able to process other 64 bit software.

    MMKing got a reaction from huilun02 in doordash pockets tips meant for employees   
    Would you prefer it
     
    option 1
    Doordash gives 1 dollar, 7 dollars tip = 8 dollar
     
    Option 2
    Doordash gives 10 dollars, 7 dollars tip = 10 dollars
     
    option 3, the fantasy option
    Doordash gives 10 dollars, 7 dollars tip = 17 dollars
     
    Everyone should just stop tipping entirely. So that Doordash will have to pay the full 10 dollar on every delivery. Then we can get what everyone wanted in the first place, a company which pays 100% of the salary with 0% dependence on tips.

    People seemingly believe google has full control over what gets advertised on which videos. When in reality, if you operate a youtube channel dealing with ''risque topics'', chances are companies will explicitly tell youtube that your category, or even your channel in particular is no-no.
    If Coca Cola doesn't want their ads shown on your channel, thats it. There is no argument or plea. Coca Cola said no, and that is final.
     
     
    ''Give clear explanations for individual decisions — for example, if a video is demonetized, which parts of the video violated which criteria in the Advertiser-Friendly Content Guidelines?''
     
    If this comes true, what i imagine we will be seeing is allot of messages saying ''Our advertisers, who shall remain unnamed, want nothing to do with your channel''. Alternatively if Google is for some odd reason forced to disclose internal communication between Google and it's customers, because that is what they are, customers. I imagine even more companies will be pulling their ads off of Youtube. Now Coca Cola cannot quietly distance itself from certain channels or videos, now they risk public backlash for doing so... or public backlash for failing to do so.
     
    On TV, no one has to know Coca Cola pulled their ad from a time slot, one particular show or from the channel entirely. It's not the public's business, it's a private business transaction. But on youtube, now every single ''content creator'' (whatever that will mean legally) is privy to information and communication between themselves, youtube and the companies buying advertisement.
     
    ''Advertiser-Friendly Content Guidelines''
     
    They are called guidelines for a reason. It's not a set rule, ''don't do this specifically''. It's a list of suggestions. Even if you are well within the guidelines, certain companies may still find their content objectionable. Which they are free to do, for any reason, or even no reason at all.
     
    Example 1: Maybe you colored your hair and some company doesn't like that? Too bad, they don't want anything to do with your channel.
     
    Example 2: You drink Pepsi in your video? Too bad if Coca Cola doesn't like that.
     
    Both of these examples may be within the guidelines. However, for one reason or another someone could decide that your channel is not a good place for their advertisements.
