    The threadripper’s single core score is better than my CPU’s multi core score ☹️

  11. At 11:10 your bugger is on the keyboard 🙂

  12. Intel should send you a pair of Xeon Platinum 9282s for you to drop.

  13. And they went out and released a "Pro" 😐 Talk about overkill

  14. Not sure how useful it is..a GPU is the real tool for rendering, and much cheaper, too. So whats this good for really? Compiling software i guess

  15. MisterK812 says:

    Artificial limitation of 256GB is pretty bad.

  16. The way they run crisis in software is how I run csgo on all low at 728p

    RIP, Intel.
    RIP, Nvidia.
    AMD, yes!

    Draw your bow in The Pathless and feel the DualSense controller's adaptive trigger vibrate with increasing intensity, then stop with a click when ready to fire with 100% accuracy. #PS5

  23. Juan Romero says:

    Me: I'll just wait 2 yrs and buy it on low price…

    Me: I'll wait another 2 yrs..

    Gotta say, I'm impressed at the lack of Mac fanboys in these comments going "Well, with Mac it is about the integration of the hardware and software, man. You like, got to run a program that Apple made that does 1/100th of it's Adobe counterpart and then compare the two knowing Adobe is going to be slower because it does more."

  26. Creative says:

    this dude is so fat, that he become Chinese xD no offence ofc

  27. Man I wonder what the threadripper zen3 threadripper will achieve….
