    Way to go plonk420 = 5,000,000 points accomplished...





    Challenge me, or correct me, but don't ask me to die quietly.

    ugh, if the cryptocurrency craze hadn't hit, i probably could get a decent cheap, power sipping GPU like the RX470 or 570 for $120 or so

    Some articles in the news say it's declining, so maybe later this year or the next prices will come down to an affordable value.
    On the other hand I can't wait for 7nm GPUs and CPUs to be launched

    Oh yes, I saw that too... that is going to be a BEAST! 32 cores, 64 threads, and 250W TDP

    There will be a motherboard/chipset refresh but the CPU is socket compatible, it does not require a new motherboard if you already have a 1st Gen ThreadRipper, the only thing is those 250W ones may just run at spec or have limited overclocking on older motherboards because of the amount of power draw.

    Those that invested in MSI (10+3 powerphases) or Asrock (11 powerphases) TR4 motherboards are in luck, it seems...
    Asus and Gigabyte (with their 8+2 powerphases) might be more of a problem when tied to a 250 Watt tdp CPU.
