Hello, meltdown.addicted, you wrote: MA> Was going to update the computer, but was not in time that like even it is good with the registration of the latest news. On what now that to look? To go over in camp AMD from them Threadripper? How it generally, tried who? Or not so it is terrible Meltdown as synthetics paints also a horse-radish with it and ? Looking with what to compare Threadripper. productivity from meltdown goes in a specific juz-case - context switching. Considering that processors from Intel in an one-flow faster AMD if not to look at the price, the Intel will be better. If to look, AMD and to Meltdown were better in a budgetary segment, as far as I know. MA> the computer is necessary for programming, and operations from a photo (1-2 Gb of a photo in the Photoshop). It is a lot of kernels more shortly (well 6 at least), it is a lot of storage (well 32 at least) and that it is not so noisy. On - you is ideally suited 8700K, if hunting to be confused, the dispersed. Judging by the description of your tasks, kernels at you will stand idle 99 % of time, productivity in the remained 1 % of time therefore is important and much bigger productivity of Intel here will be by the way. ThreadRipper it is ideal for those whom to eat than load all kernels for a long time, thus it would be desirable to take the effective decision at the price either to receive ECC or to receive many PCI-lines. Still a variant - to wait for following generation of Intel (I think half a year-year a maximum), there promise the 8-nuclear processor which will work most likely on the same 5GHz, as well as current leaders. Noise depends on cooling system, instead of from the processor. At me is more silent, than , though power incomparable.> under the budget for 4 without the monitor to get out not hunting. The computer did not collect years 10 as well as after Meltdown learned about modern lines a lot of the new. It is possible to collect much more cheaply, I think.
