Hi guys! got a question that's been ganwing at me these past days:

Coming from an i7-4790K setup from 5 years ago, I've gathered these parts in a new Ryzen-based rig:

- Aorus X570 Master mobo
- HyperX Predator DDR4 3200 2*16GB RAM
- Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super v/c
- Lian-li Lancool II Mesh
- Samsung 970 EVO 512GB NVMe M.2


Basically complete, and now all I need is a processor. I was initially thinking of getting a 3700X or 3800XT, but with the upcoming Zen 3 release about to drop very soon, I'm now considering just getting an R5 3600 for the time time being, just to get this rig up and running, then get a newer Zen 3-based part once it drops.

Does that sound sensible enough? I'm factoring in here the unavoidable upgrade itch here.

Don't buy a gpu now. Wait for release of rtx 3000 in a couple of weeks and amd's response to drive down prices of older cards.


Crucial Ballistix DDR3600 C16 memory is fast and cheap, unless those HyperX are known good overclocking chips.

Ryzen 5 3600 is hard to find these days. A few weeks ago, it was 8000php+shipping from Amazon.

It was available locally with a B550 Gigabyte motherboard package for 17,000php. Now that's gone.

Samsung 970 EVO 512GB NVMe M.2 is very pricey. I decided to buy an Adata SX8200 Pro 1TB instead for the same price.

It's been a long time since I used my dremel...

I have a slim case, and normal GPU with any external power don't fit, so I just cut a hole a few years ago.

but with my current setup, that cable is a liability

so tried to buy a Vertical GPU bracket, didn't occur to me that it will not fit my case without some modifications
well, it's a 6year old case, so the dremel it is. -- removing *all* of the expansion slots


but now it has a hole in it. :(



this is my Haswell rig (fitted with an RTX2060 super), and will try to hang onto it as long as it can last

Repurposed my old Galaxy Note 5 as a system monitor for my desktop using Remote System Monitor.

AMD is back in the high end GPU game with a vengeance. The new Radeon cards are efficiency monsters. The RX6800XT and RX6800 absolutely destroy the 3080 and 3070 in perf-per-watt metrics. Approximately 100W less power while delivering the same level of performance. Hopefully the launch drivers will be solid this time around.

I sometimes wonder if Nvidia going with Samsung 8N instead of TSMC 7nm was the wrong move for this generation. The only thing Ampere still has going for it is DXR performance which still puts it ahead of RDNA2 by a sizable margin.

^ Intentional choice by Nvidia to use all their TSMC allocation for A100. Given a finite amount of orders you can book at TSMC would you rather sell a $40k A100 or a $800 RTX 3080 or even a $1500 RTX 3090?

No surprise really that gamers (and lower-end compute cards) get deported to Samsungland. If AMD's MI100 business takes off to the same degree you can bet that Big Navi production is going to a complete halt as they transfer their capacity to CDNA.


A100 order price

The thing is Nvidia's supercomputer hits keep coming. They announced 6 back in May, I've heard of at least 3 or 4 since then, and now they're launching an upgraded A100 so we can only assume the orders are still coming.
