    It's a great machine, probably the best 8-bit. My Master is still in regular use as it's such a good platform for hardware development.

    Foveros exemplifies Intel's current problems. It is very late to the game and appears to little concrete evidence that it actually exists beyond marketing slides. If they actually start deploying it...

    In general money doesn't save tech companies that have lost their mojo, it just enables them to die slower.

    Yep. I've no doubt almost every single 3600 chiplet has 8 functioning codes, AMD is just binning them by leakage. The 3600 gets chiplets from the bottom end of the grade, which, is has to be said, is...

    RISC-V is going to be huge. It's still running under the radar for most people involved in IT, but 5 years from now it'll be pushing ARM out of the microcontroller market and probably making inroads...

    I should point out that you're making the mistake of talking about the UK and then quoting data that applies only to England. I'm not sure of the situation in NI and Wales, but in Scotland tenants...

    He's really only stating the obvious; the MAX boards are newer and will get BIOS support for longer. The small flash chip on the non-MAX boards also means possible inconvenience in future, becuase...

    Yeah, it's too far away and Star Citizen cured me of crowdfunding. They've raised over $300,000 in a day so it'll do okay anyway.

    For pure gaming I don't see any point in going beyond the 3600. You get at least 90% of the performance of a 3900X or 9900K for less than half the price.

    And the point where a fast 6C/12T chip no...

    One thought; that MSI mobo doesn't have BIOS flashback, so if you don't have an older Ryzen to hand you'll have to get the retailer to flash it with a Ryzen 3000 compatible BIOS.

    tbh, the 660p is only worth considering if you're on a really tight budget. Time hasn't been kind to it. You can get newer drives for about $20 more that beat it in every metric, sometimes by a...

    Yep, Ryzen's powre management is a lot more advanced than these tools are written to expect. In my case Ryzen Master is showing 1.37v at idle, so there's definitely a BIOS issue.

    AMD has cheaped out a bit. The stock 3600 cooler is pretty bad, it's just a lump of aluminium without the copper core that older ones had. My 3600 will hit about 85C under load on the stock cooler -...
