    What CPU Next (personal machine)?

    4K gaming well you can run any CPU really its not going to show much of a difference in FPS, its all GPU bound at that Res. Question is do you care how much you spend? Adobe loves Clock speed so one of the Intel CPU's would be a better choice then the AMD. Z370/390 is a dead socket, what you...

    AMD Zen 2 Offers a 13% IPC Gain over Zen+, 16% over Zen 1

    Wow thats alot bigger IPC gain then I was expecting this would put AMD infront of intel for pure IPC performance as they are only now around 3% difference, that is very impressive! Lers hope it does indeed turn out this way.

    5400rpm SSHD vs 7200rpm HDD

    Yes it is a big difference, I have experienced this multiple times with many many Clients and my own computers, 10 is very slow on a Mechanical HDD compared to 7. No not failure rate but the percentage is less and thats what they are showing, a percentage. More HDD's the less the percentage...

    5400rpm SSHD vs 7200rpm HDD

    SSHD would be faster yes, but again no where near as fast as a SSD. Windows 7? then you should be fine honestly, any 7200RPM drive will run it fine and at a descent speed, doesnt really require and SSD it be just a bonus really.

    5400rpm SSHD vs 7200rpm HDD

    Question is what OS are you going to be running? Windows 10? if so you need the fastest drive possible as its a dog of an OS when its run on a 5400 or even any type of Mechanical Hard Drive, but between the two id go 7200 for sure. If its Windows 7 you can get away with running it on ether 5400...

    In Wake of Controversy, Intel-Paid Principled Technologies Retesting AMD Ryzen Processors

    Its good to see that they are going to retest and then should see different results. The sad part is intel originally agreed with there results by saying that is what we get in our labs as well, and they told PT to use Ryzenmaster on the 2700X....... So intel you going to retest as well then...
