    Intel offered him a bigger check, who wouldn't follow the money?

    HP ENVY x360 15-bq101na Could be First "Raven Ridge" Implementation

    Dell is famous for this as well. Despite what majority thinks, there is a noticeable difference to this day moving from single to dual channel memory.

    Are you buying Intel Coffee Lake?

    I've been going back and forth about this for the longest. I'm going to wait and see what Ryzen does in Feb. If AMD doesn't deliver I'm going with the i7-8700k and 32gb of ram and calling it a day.

    Core i7-8700K Reviewed by Lab501

    Ryzen caused such a panic that they have Intel stepping on their own toes...gotta love it. Interestingly enough, might jump ship to Intel.

    Mesh network advice?

    If you don't want to go the mesh route, just get two Ubiquiti UAP-AC-Pros and connect them to your current router(turn wireless on the Netgear off). They will function together and hand off properly as long as they are on the same network. I've deployed over 100 of their APs in various...

    Keep your current router, disable wireless on it and install one of these http://a.co/6GwXQCC

    Linksys Announces the WRT32X AC3200 Gaming Router

    Intel NICs are superior, with enough bandwidth you dont need QOS. Separation allows the router's cpu/ram to focus on just routing. Separate switch allows for better switching (same reasons), a separate AP allows you to place it where ever for better coverage. All in ones work fine for most...

    Linksys Announces the WRT32X AC3200 Gaming Router

    Killer NICs have always been a joke. Networking wise, component systems are the way to go. Router/firewall, separate gigabit smart switch, separate wireless access point.

    AMD Defends MCM Approach for Building 32-core EPYC: Huge Cost Savings of ~41%

    Yeah...but at the end of the day, it still boils down to, Intel is charging 50% or more for CPUs that are only at best maybe 10% faster.....

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    Just always had an itch for another Intel based platform. I haven't made a firm decision yet, but whichever way I go its going to be my last build for quite sometime.

    New PC dreams / switching sides from Intel to AMD.

    Zbam, have you made a decision? After re-reading everything, sounds like an R7 1700 would fit you nicely.

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    I've ran AMD at home ever since 2014, looking at this, I may just end up with an i7-8700k, a geforce card and call it a day. Power consumption is going to be my driving factor as now a days my desktop mostly sits idle.

    New PC dreams / switching sides from Intel to AMD.

    I'm going to have to 2nd this. If gaming is your #1 all focus, pickup an i7-7700k and clock the piss out of it, my boy picked up one this weekend and hit 4.8ghz like it was nothing. Ryzen is within arms reach performance wise, but Intel is still the absolute best money can buy for a gaming...

    Intel Core i3-8300 Detailed - First Quad-Core i3

    I spent the last 6 years as a senior engineer for a managed services provider. When I ordered PCs for a client , my min spec for desktops was an i5 and 8gb(2x4gb) of ram. A few clients had custom built point of sale systems and those I replaced with i3s . All servers were of course xeons but the...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Overclocked to 4.1 GHz With Liquid Cooling

    Intel is at best 10% faster, charging 75% more for their CPUs. Id love to try an Intel platform out (its been years), but the way my mortgage is setup....nah I'll stick with Ryzen.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Overclocked to 4.1 GHz With Liquid Cooling

    That's not the point, clocking both at the same speeds gives the best comparison.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Overclocked to 4.1 GHz With Liquid Cooling

    https://www.techspot.com/review/1457-ryzen-7-vs-core-i7-octa-core/ Notice that when both sides of the argument are clocked at 4.0ghz with matching ram speeds, there really isn't that much of a difference, accept the astronomical price of the Intel chips

    Intel Core i3-8350K and Core i3-8100 "Coffee Lake" Detailed

    iPhone 8 or Galaxy Note 8 ?

    Side note, if you are set on an Android device, the new Asus ZenFone AR would be my choice over the S8, it has an headphone jack. https://www.asus.com/us/Phone/ZenFone-AR-ZS571KL/Features/ Its a Verizon exclusive in the US.

    iPhone 8 or Galaxy Note 8 ?

    I would say iPhone 8, here's why... At one point I was probably the biggest Android proponent you could find. I've had every Android phone starting with the Droid X, several galaxies, HTCs. The only Android phones I haven't experienced are the LGs and the Sony Xperia line. I've flashed roms...
