    Considering you're running this on SERVER CPUs from like 2011/12 on socket 2011 with DDR3 ECC.. And the AMD machine is what, 2019? I don't think it did that bad really, i was surprised myself, but this isn't exactly a great comparison.. If the surprisingly stable motherboard could have let you overclock, plus assuming the VRMs could handle that, and it was something newer than Ivy Bridge, would kick more arse but probably not for the same price. I'm still amazed what my much older Xeon machines can still do though.. The main problem in the industry is still (de)optimization of code and routines really.. Isn't just Apple doing that with their OSes! 😛 Game engines, thread management, drivers… As far as things have come, software has to catch up again!

  6. Why are all their gpu brackets always bent and deformed? Damn

  20. Linus has finally hit puberty!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. He went from squealing lesbian to stoner dude bro to apple presenter in 3 cuts

  22. Too bad he didn't watercool it, else I could've said his voice reached Equilibrium

  23. Trust me Linus, no one is gonna buy your shirt over a new pc.
