    Yep, you read that right... we're running AMD SYSTEMS in our employee lounge. But the only thing that really matters is: how do they stack up against our previous testbench in gaming?

      Hey @
      Linus Tech Tips , im thinking since the crazy stuff such as i9 9900k and RTX Titan are out there now. Is there a chance you guys want to do a "the most expensive gaming setup in 2019" vid ? just curious. much love.

    I don't know why I clicked this video. I really despise these people. I remember why I hate them now however. Blatant abuse of money and privilege, for the sake of showing off to people that sheepishly worship them. I wish there was a "block channel" feature on TheXvid.

    I guess a few benefits to consider going AMD:
    1) You've said they'll be "stream ready", and AMD will give you better results when streaming.
    2) Both next gen consoles are likely to have AMD CPUs (Sony confirmed Zen 2, MS almost certainly too), so developers are going to be focused on AMD and, in general, AMD should have better support on PC too as a result.
    3) A lot more PC gamers going AMD in the last few years too (because of budgets and streaming benefits), so AMD support has been improving already.

    Maybe someone wrote it already (don't want to scroll a milion comments) you can use AMD StoreMi with the boot drive or a 2.5" SSD instead of Optane. Optane would be sweet but for that u need X470 and a second M.2 :) You would know that if you would build more AMD systems Linus :P

    Initially, I took a dim view of your gaming setup when I heard that you were using Ryzen, but then I spotted the £1000+ worth of RGB, and... Everything is fine. Everyone knows that RGB adds instructions to the clock, so it is win, win. on a side note, I need to start my own business, so that I can create an uber LAN gaming setup like this.

    You forget to set the XMP Linus? Although 2666... Ryzen would probably be happier with 3200, I hear it's pretty sensitive to RAM speed. Not saying it would beat the Intel, but maybe less distance.

      I will be doing my own build video to add to my channel, but for now, rendering will just take me 2 hours. For most of my work... I’m a total noob to editing, but not such a noob to getting my hands dirty

    • kiloneie
      kiloneie Day ago

      +The Weekend That's a good idea yes, currently i am using my Ryzen 2700x i bought last summer for gaming and video editing, and will be buying THE best Zen 2+(or Zen 3 ?) processor when it comes out so by the time i FINALLY get optic fiber i will be able to render long ass streams quickly, it will cost me about half a year of savings xD. Good luck.

    • The Weekend
      The Weekend Day ago

      kiloneie video editing and gaming and because I can afford it. I’ll be waiting for zen 2 to come out. But as the price changes I might just got for the new AMD 3000 series

    • kiloneie
      kiloneie Day ago

      What in the world will you be using a Threadripper for ? Check the cheapest mobo for a threadripper and the cheapest Zen+ Threadripper and consider that very carefully. Also Zen 2 is around the corner, few months tops probably.
