      Yes, kernel compile speed on EPYC will be EPIC!

          Oh no. And even Threadrippers use different socket!
          But at what price and at what power consumption? Some Threadripper motherboards seem to have 2x8pin CPU power connectors.

          Oh. And also: Hi. \o

            As with several of the new X299 mbs from Intel, it seems related to the number of PCI-e slots, if more than 5 then its 2 x 8 pin.

              The 5 Ghz mark, well we will see if it materializes, Ryzen so far hasn't done that and the early reports indicated that this would be possible..

              Kind regards.

                Best I've seen is 5.3GHz or so on LN2; on water cooling about 1GHz less.

                With regard to compiling on Ryzen, people on the Gentoo forums have been complaining a bit about weird/random segfaults (that I also ran across a few times while building my own kernel), see here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-...start-150.html

                  Using a MSI board? Try this driver:

                      You'll end up getting one of these and complain about how bad gaming performance is
