Is the X570 Tomahawk enough?

Because GPUs are scarce, you are wondering about a motherboard?

 

I don't understand.

I am building my pc and have ordered a decent amount of the parts, however since the GPU's are scarce i was wondering if the MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard can run 144Hz or even 240Hx on my Odyssey G7.

 

Thanks

the motherboard doesn't have a gpu, it is some cpus and motherboards have ports that connect that gpu in a cpu to a monitor, and the x570 tomahawk is a great board, and no a cpu gpu, namely an igpu, is too weak to even run 1080p properly

"I know a lot about a little, but a little about a lot"

Note that I am a student so what I say is based on what I read, and may not be the case for everyone.

I am not the best technician, so don't make fun

I don't understand.

I am going to wait for a GPU and use the integrated graphics (IG) instead, but after some more research I realise that IG is on the CPU. In that case I am getting a 6800X, does that have IG and if so is it good enough?

 

Please bear with me if I sound dumb, i just want to understand what I can run on until I can get my hands on a GPU

Ahh, i see. I'm planning to get the 6800X, does its igpu have enough power to run 144+ Hz displays?

no, and only the 3400g has a decent vega 11 igpu, the 5600x doesn't the 3300x doesn't only g amd cpus, also it is max 1080p 60hz

so my monitor is capped at 60Hz till i get a GPU?

It doesn't have an iGPU. For graphics on AMD without a dedicated GPU you need to have one of the APUs.

not capped, it will only get 60 fps max at low settings, looking stuttery at high refresh rate, lowering the refresh rate doesn't increase performance, just looks better on lower fps

I'm not sure I understand, so high refresh rate on low fps = bad quality?

 

Maybe an example would help

What is the 6800X?

If you don't have adaptive sync, a capped FPS can make the experience more consistent. But if I recall, the odyssey G7 does have freesync or something so you wouldn't have to worry about it.

 

Either way if you're planning on getting a baller graphics card like an RX 6800 XT you are probably getting some kind of high end CPU that does not have integrated graphics so you can't use the motherboard video ports for anything, they'll be totally inactive.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The 6800 XT is a GPU, not a CPU. It does not have an iGPU, it is a GPU.

 

You seem to be very confused about this process. You should probably just give us the standard information and let us put together a part list for you, please fill this out to the best of you ability:

Country: 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):

Yes, because the refresh rate is too fast for the fps, the screen refreshes the same frame multiple times, causing longer and inconsistent frame times.

Got it, thanks man

oh and not all cpu have a gpu, only the g series processors from amd, so it won't work unless you get a 3400g, so you'll need to wait for the 6800 xt if you want that. Do some research if you are still confused

Oh, sorry i did get a bit confused. The CPU im getting is the 5900X, sorry for the confusion
