Re: ASRock Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9 LGA 2066 - good choice?

I've only had it up and running since the weekend, but no issues or concerns thus far. I hesitated on choosing this board or its cousin the Taichi (same board minus 10G NIC) due to the inclusion of only a single 8 pin CPU power connector and the best information I found indicated that none of the o...

Re: ASRock Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9 LGA 2066 - good choice?

I bought this exact board and a 7900x last week. Just got it up and running over the weekend, replaced an Asrock X99 board which had served me very well (read: no issues) during its lifespan. I've also used several Asrock mainstream boards (Z77-Z97) with no issues and good overclocking potential. I...

Re: ASRock Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9 LGA 2066 - good choice?

My choice of this board is largely based on this review: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/8288/asrock-fatal1ty-x299-pro-gaming-i9-motherboard-review/index11.html They mention the VRM cooling is very good, and the board is the only one with a N-Base T 10g controller that can also go 2.5 and 5. I hadn...

ASRock Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9 LGA 2066 - good choice?

Hey all, I'm looking for an x299 board, and from what I can tell the Asrock seems like the one with the best features/price. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157775&ignorebbr=1 I haven't had great experiences with Asrock products in the past, which gives me pause, I want...

Re: 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T routers available when?

The router assigns the internal IP addresses, no? Doesn't all internal traffic pass through the router at some point? Wouldn't the slowest link in the chain constrict all traffic to that speed? Only internal traffic that needs to leave your local network is routed through your routers WAN port. Swi...

Re: 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T routers available when?

Dunno about routers, but the ASUS XG-C100C that launched is a ~$100 10Gbps NIC. It also specifically supports 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T links. Given ASUS already makes some 10GBASE-T switches I would tend to think that means ASUS will be launching some updated consumer routers within the year that pe...

Re: 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T routers available when?

2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps would actually be beneficial for me. My NAS can handle ~2 GB/s of writes (backups and whatnot) but instead, I have to wait *hours* for my desktop and my wife's desktop to back up due to the limitations of gigabit. That's my use case as well, I want to enable faster backups and f...

2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T routers available when?

I'm dying to replace my router, and would prefer to upgrade to the faster speed, anyone have any idea when we will start to see some actual products? It feels like a long time since this standard was announced.

Liking everything about it so far aside from a few niggles. Character creation is more limited.

I think this is great, it's the equivalent of upgrading your graphics card to play at higher settings.

It will also drive down the cost of the current...

Re: Leaked 42-Page Presentation about PlayStation 4 Neo

The faster than xbone ps4 gpu is 1.76 teras of single precision. The Scorpio is at least 6, and neo 4. Those are pretty damn significant improvements and 6 is possibly capable of 4k gaming, though frame rates will be somewhat limited. The neo, as stated by Sony, is not 4k capable, and never will be...
