Here's me rocking;

i7-5820K, MSI X99A SLI Krait, 64GB (8x8GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4-2400 (XMP at 2666), twin GTX 980Ti's as my main rig

i7-6700, MSI Z170A, 32GB (4x8GB) G.Skill Ripjaws 4 F4-2800C16Q, GTX 960 & a Elgato HD60 Pro as my console capture box

C2Q Q9505, Gigabyte GA-EP41-UD3L-B3 (Rev 1.2), 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair DDR2-667, GTX 760 as my WinXP Retro Rig (dual-boot with Win7 to get stuff running on Steam & GOG on it, updated with XP USP4 and a 64-bit aware patch so can access up to 64GB of RAM in 32-bit XP)

 

Oh, and then there's;

i7-5820K, MSI X99S Krait, 32GB (4x8) G.Skill Ripjaws F4-2800C16Q (was originally 2 sets of the stuff, but half went to the i7-6700 rig after the 4x16GB kit in it that went to dad's new R5-3600, Z570, GTX 1660Ti rig), that was my dad's previous rig that just needs a new GPU & PSU and it's back up and running... might drop a RTX 3070 in it some time next year when can afford one as I know the 5820K is still a fairly solid gaming chip today.

C2D P8600 2.4GHz, 8GB (2x4GB, coulda gone 2x8GB), GeForce 320M Mid-2010 MacBook A1342

C2D E7600 3.06 GHz, 16GB (4x4GB), GeForce 9400M late-2009 21.5" iMac A1311

 

Man, I'm rocking a LOT of hardware that's easily 5-12 years old between all my different systems, and they're doing their jobs just fine for me.

The poll should have allowed multiple votes, because some of us have both newer gen cpus as well as old ones. My desktop is running on 4th gen Haswell-E, while my laptop is using Intel 8th gen Kaby Lake-R.

My intent in this poll is simply to look at how new stuff is, not how performant it is. Maybe I should add some wording to the effect "hardware that you use at all" but then it'll start getting too complicated in small print that no one will read anyway.

 

In other words, this is working as intended. It's not list everything you have, just what is the newest you have.

and read the OP for the full explanation

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

My main system has an R7 3800X with an RTX 2080 Super. Then my HTPC has an i7 4790K with a GTX 1080. I also have few other CPUs and motherboards laying around including an R7 2700 and an i7 7700K. I've never had an AMD GPU but I have nVidia stuff from every major generation going all the way back to FX series cards except Maxwell/900 series (I might even still have a GeForce 2 MX or GeForce 4 MX somewhere).

The poll has closed, and the results are... interesting.

 

Let's start with the CPUs. There's an obvious trend here. We see increasing numbers of users on newer AMG generations, and the opposite on Intel with a decline on the newer generations. For this forum's audience, AMD has certainly swung many over.

 

It is also interesting that a fair proportion of people have at least one of each from Intel and AMD. Roughly 40%. I wonder if this is in part from having a current AMD system, while retaining older Intel systems?

 

Onto the GPUs, here the last two generations of nvidia take a clear lead. Since I intentionally made this poll just a single choice for each category, it doesn't count the numbers who also still have older gen devices, but it does seem like AMD is struggling here. Can the impending Navi cards change this situation, or will Ampere continue nvidia's run?

 

I hope people found this interesting. Maybe I should repeat this perhaps early next year, once there has been some time for next gen to be relased and people to get them into builds.

I didn't get to vote, can you open the poll again? 

It was meant to capture a snapshot at the time, so I don't intend to reopen it. What I might do is re-run it from time to time and see what's changed. There's a lot of new hardware expected by end of year so it'll be interesting to compare then.
