    Ryzen

    Next gen Epyc will be out next year. They better be pretty deep into Zen 3.

    Sure, if my main use for the computer was burn-in testing and benchmarking the CPU....

    Search function is garbage.

    Hmmm. I have almost 900GB, the vast majority of which is FLAC. Do we need to switch user names? ;)

    Prison Break

    Isn't the easiest solution to just build a Faraday cage around the prison? ;) Unless there's a worry that the "users" may be able to tap into it, wired is the way to go. Any wireless solution would be unwieldy or nonstandard, or both.

    Ryzen

    I picked up a 3600 non-X. I'm running it stock on a B450 board with the stock cooler. It runs 100% load all day at 3.8GHz and pretty quiet. Intel has work to do.

    Ryzen

    TDP is, unfortunately, a load of baloney. Intel's seem more honest but considerably more useless; their TDPs are basically what the cooling solution needs to dissipate for the chip to only hit the base clock. AMD's TDPs are supposedly what the cooling solution needs to dissipate for the...

    Well, first and second gen Threadrippers and x399 boards should get real cheap soon....

    OAuth

    I'm guessing that you're dead already, then. You may want to check if Gmail will fetch the mail for you. I haven't set it to up with any other accounts since the days of POP, so I don't know what it supports now.

    Well, Intel isn't doing it with Ice Lake, either. Threadripper 1000 and 2000 chips have a much more compelling price/performance.

    Stop using it. Problem solved!

    Ryzen

    Doesn't AMD already offer more than 18 cores for less than $1000? This looks kind of like Intel trying to fight AMD's mainstream desktop with HEDT.

    So, what's the problem with "too many old ATT and Verixons emails?"

    Ryzen

    I get the (unfounded) feeling that Threadripper will get better chiplets. The AM4 parts with two chiplets have a good one and a not as good one. I think that Intel has spun out on HEDT. All they can do is push clocks at 14nm and hope that their 10nm chips can catch up. I don't think that...

    Why did you leave the messages on the telco servers? I've always downloaded my messages, so Thunderbird now manages about two decades' worth in email.

    The new iPhones are often cited. Their chip is also produced by TSMC on 7nm. Between Apple and AMD, that's a lot of silicon.
