x79 systems worth it? tinkertry.com’s Paul Braren joins us in the discussion and tells us about a few of his builds and his VPN using Hamachi on this weeks BYOB Podcast.
x79 is in…but leaves nothing for the powers users
Underwhelmed by the massive processing power along with heat & power consumption. LGA2011 chips while useful for very high end workstations. Leave nothing for the average power user / gamer. x79 chipsets offer little of it original promise. No USB 3, SAS, only a few Sata III ports, no improvement of SSD caching. Our recommendation is to pass on this unless you make a living waiting for multi-threaded apps to crunch data.
