Nice to see the price dropping a tad bit on the Ryzen 3000 series.. Amazon is selling it at the same price right now, as well.. $469 (3900X). I might hold off just a bit and wait for the Ryzen 4000 series coming in the later this year.. see how that effects the pricing, or jump on the Zen 3 bandwagon when the time comes. Hope Intel can stay competitive. :cool:

I don't think Intel is competitive at all anymore, with all the security issues and the like that keeps coming out, it's just not happening.

I've been trying to get around to building my 3900X rig for nearly 2 weeks, it's been in the box that long and I've still not got anywhere with it :laugh: :wtf::kookoo::banghead::rolleyes: Still tonight, I might actually get the damn thing turned on..... Here's hoping....

I'll say it again Phill, SACRILEGE! :p Poor thing has to be getting cramps in that box. You might need to start off with some easy stretching exercises, you don't want it to pull a hamstring. Just kidding of course.

I really love that you guys do this kind of stuff, but I am just curious is there even one breakthrough in the medical or astronomical fields that was achieved through this CPU intensive stuff that can directly be tied to not have happening thanks to this effort?

I asked the same thing at Folding@Home and I got a lot of vague studies but nothing concrete. Just curious honestly. If we had some stuff to point to, and things in the pipeline perhaps we could rally more people to do join the cause?

I really love that you guys do this kind of stuff, but I am just curious is there even one breakthrough in the medical or astronomical fields that was achieved through this CPU intensive stuff that can directly be tied to not have happening thanks to this effort?

I asked the same thing at Folding@Home and I got a lot of vague studies but nothing concrete. Just curious honestly. If we had some stuff to point to, and things in the pipeline perhaps we could rally more people to do join the cause?
I couldn't say either way if anything concrete has come from WCG/BOINC or folding@home.. BUT! If there is a chance that there would be help to finding a cure by way of using WCG/Folding@home, or the other research that BOINC is doing, then you bet your ass I'm going to give it my attention and effort. I have my reasons for getting involved with this.. I mean, if there is a chance that research from doing WU's from WCG and folding@home could help, why would you not get involved?? Maybe that's a good question to ask yourself, as well.. :cool::peace:

The WCG website gives good updates regarding what comes from the research and what past and current projects have accomplished. The projects here would probably all get done with or without the distributed computing efforts, we are all just making things easier, less costly, etc for the researchers.

What's to stop a post-grad student at one of these research projects from converting your CPU power into Monero coin mining, then just telling you there was a breakthrough? Is there any oversight to verify?

Just curious, I have a major lack of trust in other humans, so don't mind me hahahaha

F@H is run by Stanford.
WCG is a project run by IBM on BOINC "The BOINC project is located at the University of California, Berkeley. It has existed since 2002, with funding primarily from the National Science Foundation."

I think it's a pretty safe bet that we're not being hoodwinked.

@lynx29 Look through the posts on my thread, in my signature. Lot's of good happens because of our Crunching for WCG. It's the best thing I do, every day.
