Re: Coffee Lake 6 core, this August with z370 chipsets?

Ryzen's IPC is within 2-5% of Kaby Lake CPUs at the same or even slightly higher clocks. Untrue and it clocks quite poorly. I don't think Intel's upcoming 6-core Skylake/Kaby Lake x CPUs will go beyond 4.2-4.5GHz, it's a nice boost yes, but there's no way Intel will sell them for anything under $50...

Did you forget to take your daily pills? Someone needs help pronto... WOW Ryzen's IPC is within 2-5% of Kaby Lake CPUs at the same or even slightly higher clocks. It's true Most Ryzen 5 CPUs don't go beyond 4GHz, but that's fine, Intel's 1st gen 14nm didn't overclock much beyond 4GHz either. In mult...

Re: 7700k, wow!

I think R7 1700 is a much better deal, it's both cheaper and future proof. In applications with HTT/SMT support, the 8-core R7 1700 blitzes i7 7700K completely. i7 7700K has 30% higher clock speeds, but I think core-count and more threads make the 1700 a much better deal. Also, you can overclock the...

Re: Choosing High End Windows Laptop

Re: HDD to SSD trouble +

12GB of DDR3 @1600 - such frequency, much capacity. You're a real trooper. OT: Should've just formatted the SSD and done a fresh install of Win 10. Your Son doesn't need all that clutter on his new SSD system. It's either Win 10 is not happy with the new SSD not being properly unloaded onto it and/o...
