Windows 10: 2017 Hardware Thread
2017 Hardware Thread
Well it's that time of year where we have some interesting new Hardware choices
So Kaby-Lake has been released but honestly no need for it because Skylake performs pretty much the same or better at the same speed given Kaby-Lake can OC higher
Also we have The New Z270 Platform
Bunch of Intel refresh ......
Now we are on to AMD they have Ryzen that can compete with a 6900k CPU @3.6 Ghz with a Turbo that goes to 4.0 with more room to push
Also Vega GPU's
So what are your thoughts.............
Im falling behind a few generations now. May take the plunge this year for Z270/7770K
All my systems are AMD and looking forward to the Ryzen and new motherboards and see what the new specs they have.
I upgraded to Skylake in December and I'm loving my hardware. I don't see the need to immediately go out and get Kaby Lake. I will probably stay with this setup for 3 years or so.
I like the "overclock higher" part. I'm also anxious to see what the 1080 TI is really like, if it is ever released. So far everything about it has been rumors.
1080 TI will be glorious
AMD should be able to compete now
I heard they can reach 5Ghz with ease ,I thought about it but i am happy at 4.7 Ghz stable with less voltage on a offset mode
I'll be building a Ryzen rig, just for the sake of doing it, but.....I don't really hold much hope that they'll compete with the IPC of Skylake / Broadwell E. 8 cores / 16 threads in a good AMD CPU will be a welcome addition to my collection, though, for sure.
I did the same just this month. From what I understand with a BIOS update a Kaby Lake will drop in our motherboards but I think there are other benefits the Z170 chipset would not take advantage of. I'm really loving this system as well and considering I ran an i7 920 for the last seven years I doubt an upgrade will be necessary anytime soon. Companies need to keep innovating or watch their stock value drop, but I don't need to drop coin every time they bring their latest to market.
I wanted to be quiet about it but i have the money for Ryzen but not sure if i am going to swap out a system or just go all new
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members, dedicated moderators and our admin team for all your continued support. We wish you all a Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year!
