    ryzen 3 isn't 3 core, ryzen 5 isn't 5 and 7 is not 7 core. SO hey....These people like using numbers that don't give away anything about core number XD

    He says i9 start at 10 cores. But the i9 9900k has 8 cores, 16 threads. And is priced at 480$ not the 1000$ minimum he says for i9... interesting..

      Why only 512 gb RAM bump it upto 1500 GB. Even servers with multiple cores work with 1tb RAM minimum.

    I really think there aren't many real world cases that would benefit from 18 cores, unless you'd host vpses or something, but than you'd probably use Xeon... So, fewer cores that are way faster for me plz...

  • winkyshy2
    winkyshy2 Month ago

    ok so im probably knowledgeable enough about cpus to ask this question, buuut im gunna. since moores law is almost certainly void(or soon will be since we cant really get any smaller without opening some sort of time loop on a quantum lvl( and ppl are afraid we might end up back in the disco days) why dont they just take 2, I-9's with w/e cores and threads, and put 2 in series or w/e and make 1 big chip with 40 cores and 80 threads. i know they cant be stacked on top of each other due to heat. they already make extra large motherboards, and just think 8 titans in a row. again forgive me if im missing something important, there just has to be a way to do this. 10 nm? give intel their fucking trophy, and lets make some really epic computers.

    An extremely powerful budget minded single core clocked at crazy speeds like 5ghrz. Maybe even an extreme version with 2 threads at 6ghrz. Maybe not for gaming, but office work.

    All of you crying about being too poor to afford this, you DON'T NEED THIS. You clearly don't have a high paying job that requires these kind of workloads so yeah you can't afford it but you also don't need it. You gaming nerds don't need 18 cores lmao, most video games still do not take advantage of even quad cores.

    The rule is not literal but phonetic. Americans and Canadians should say, "a historic". As Brits accents evolved and they forgot how to pronounce the letter H, (much to the dismay of Henry Higgins), they are correct in saying, "an (h)istoric"
    American media started saying it a few years ago and everyone followed suit. I'm nobody but you can reach the people. Lead them to freedom. Thanks for all the awesome vids!
