  1. Is AMD potentially risky? (Threadripper)

    Same rig, pretty stable on Linux and Windows. Very happy
  2. Is AMD potentially risky? (Threadripper)

    Is the openCL issue on recent Intel CPUs is fixed on Linux. Is there a patch or a workflow. Thanks

    I am using it on ASRock X399, quiet happy, make sure cables are firmly seated, otherwise user may experience cold sweats (speaking from experience)

    Yes but htop looks much nşcer with HT on

    No 8700 for general use
  7. Is AMD potentially risky? (Threadripper)

    I think i7 8700 is a better option than ryzen now, that's what I have been advicing people

    64 with logicals

    My point is instead of buying a 7960 and complete the rest of the system and end up spending 3K , I would definitely build two 1950Xs one with cheap components and one as main machine possibly for 3K if not a little more, which in the end I would end up having 64 3+ GHz cores( drooling) But this becomes a heavy simulation lifter in the end, for rendering I would spend that money only on GPUs so it's always up to the user

    I am not saying TR is the fastest processor because it's not, but for sub 1K range IMHO it is the logical choice. As for the second PC part, it doesn't need high speed disks or SSDs since rendering a frame or a big simulation caching will definitely going to take more than a few minutes per frame, a slow disk will suffice.

    Not necessarily, u can make a second TR with much cheaper components, can use it for distributed simulations etc or renders. Second box doesn't need a fancy video card or a case monitor or other additional costs. Also I always find it very strange to do a comparison for a couple that costs 900 to another one that costs 2000. If the performance difference is not %200 better , there is a clear winner for me

    You can buy 2X 1950X with the price of one i9 7960, 7960 is not even the competitor because it costs more than double the prize of a 1950

    you can always tell a software to use n amount of cores, just leave at least one or two free
  14. Is AMD potentially risky? (Threadripper)

    Honestly, I couldn't been happier with my TR choice. It was obviously a huge leap from 2600K which is a glorified file server and render manager now. But with my TR I can render and do comp at the same time whooaaat. It's not the fastest CPU out there but for it's price range it's the damn best IMHO. For an fx td

    Mine worked straight out of box on Ubuntu 17.04, well kubuntu tbh, with CPU flag, so I ak guessing this is OS related
