So #Ryzen3000 series are out. We're seeing +15 % IPC and clocks up to 4.6 GHz.
A massive hit with the Ryzen 9 3900X and its 12c/24t beating out Intel's i9-9920X (also 12c/24t) HEDT CPU for less than half the price ($500 against $1200).
And those are consumer-grade CPUs !
Got myself a nice X58 #motherboard with a #Xeon X5650 coupled with 24 GB of #DDR3 #RAM. #Amazing #deal !
Despite its age, the X58 platform still kicks it with its triple channel memory as well as incredibly good #overclocking capabilities (from 2.66 GHz base 3.06 GHz boost to a whopping 4.5 GHz all the time with decent cooling).
I'll be using it as a secondary rig.
Do you guys also love old but gold platforms like the X58 from #Intel ?
Hello fellow #FOSS and #PC #hardware fans and brothers,
Let's share our main rigs specs (#cpu, #ram, #gpu, #os) here ! Say what you mostly do with it as well :)
#AMD #Ryzen #Threadripper 1950X @4.0 GHz
#Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32 GB DDR4 @3466 MT/s running in quad-channel
#MSI Aero #NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti @2000 MHz
OS: #Arch #Linux
Your turn !
For all of you #programmers out there: what is(are) your preferred programming language(s) and what do you do the most with it(them) ?
For me, it's a tough choice, but I'll say Python, C/C++ and Fortran. #Python for maximum productivity, image processing and data visualization. #C or #C++ and #Fortran for raw compute speed.
Free software implementation of counter strike, called #freecs, is being developed using the #fteqw engine
As the title says, a free software implementation fo counter strike is on the way thanks to #eukara. I’ve been testing it on a #ppc64le machine and it works without issues (source compilation is necessary, though).
Even though freecs is on a playable state, there are a lack of servers and players.
They have an IRC channel on freenode (#freecs).
Please, consider giving your support to the project:
Thank you so much for reading and spread the word! :-)
#Mastodon is to social networking what #Linux is to modern OS. Free, useful, and alive. The open-source community is truly powerful and friendly, communications are true and honest.
I deeply believe that #libre and #opensource software will take over the whole market in the future. Hiding your #code is no longer a strength in this modern world.
Long live the #free and #opensource software and community.
