Out of the Blue

I joked about it yesterday, but this does seem to be more PC gaming news than the usual E3. I wonder if that has to do with being near the end of the current console cycle? Whatever the cause, I'm happy about it. The occasions when the show is mostly console games can be a little depressing. It's also funny how much of the news from the show has rolled out already since it still hasn't actually begun. E3 2019 officially kicks off today at 2:00 pm EDT. Enjoy.

I think what we're going to find out (err I hope, but I ain't buying nuttin until it's been tested in the wild by peeps I trust) is that the 3800x will run more cores at max boost for a longer period of time. Or, as CJ Parker said in another thread;/snip "The 3800X will allow a higher boost w/o manual OC over the 3700X. AMD aren't complete retards. AMD isn't arbitrarily putting these TDP limits as labels on their SKUs.." just for grins
/snippet

I, too, am waiting for reviews but I no longer OC these days. It doesn't bring me any benefit in light of the whole picture of what I do with my system. AMD's site doesn't say the 3800X is "up to" 105 TDP, it just flat out says it is 105 TDP part. So, until independent reviews come out and we get a broader picture, I can only go by what the manufacturer itself states.

Thanks y'all for the heads up on the RAM. I have had exactly one stick of Crucial memory go bad in all my years of computing and their customer service bent over backwards to advance replace the DIMM for me.

Kxmode's experience with G.SKILL doesn't inspire confidence. Six weeks is a loooong turn around time to get a replacement and having to harass them to keep on top of it would drive me insane.
That was jdreyers warranty issue with g.skill.
Once again that is just one data point out of an infinite number of data points.
Similar to the fact that Smoking causes cancer and responding with "but my great uncle smoked a pack of cigarettes everyday since he was 12 and he never got cancer."
A google search of of nearly anything will turn up unsatisfied customers.

As for waiting a long time for warranty on a $50 dollar stick of DDR3 that had 50,000 hours on it, I would have just ate it and bought some more if I'd really needed it. Life's too short.

Actually, my recall was faulty. It was my Corsair memory that went bad, not the G.Skill (this was 2 years ago). I went trolling through my email to locate the ticket. They both have similar brightly colored vented heat sinks on them, so I got compfused.

As for why it took so long for my new memory module, it appears that Corsair was purchased by EagleTree Capital a couple of years ago, and they fired a bunch of people, resulting in long turnarounds. Sad.
