    it all comes down to who answers first. JK Smiki knows this crap! Dont know why he said I think so.

    Of course it is 16 threads! That is why it is $900! lol That and the massive L3 cache.

    Surely I know, I just said "I think so" because I wasn't sure if 16 threads are same or almost the same as 16 cores (is almost the same for sure), but the big advantage is that for only $900 we can have a 8 cores (16 threads w/HT), beast with very similar performances as +$2000 16 cores server CPU.

    We all know what HT means (Home Theater) .

    OK.

    Well "same and almost the same" reminds me of the saying:

    "Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades."

    There is certainly a BIG difference between CORES and THREADS.

    Again we are all aware of this. Smiki is screwing with you. Dont let him in your head!

    Btw I think it is time for me to update my system specs. I haven't had that rig listed for a long time now. Ignore it for now. So so much better now

    i'd rather see a higher speed with just 8 simple cores.
    i watch my processor's functions and diagnostics religiously
    it is ultra rare for all 8 cores to be stressed to capacity
    but the extra speed would be awsem

    i just can not see 16 cores HT/or what ever you want to call it all to be used efficiantly
    for that much money i would want it to be used ASTOUNDINGLY well

    You got that right. This X99 setup was not cheap. The worse part is I dont notice much performance over the 4770 system. It is more of a bragging platform for gamers and overclockers. Professionals will see the advantages because of the type of software they are running.

    Yeah the ONLY reason to get into this platform is if you plan on using those CPU cores (along with some GPU acceleration) to render video or music content. If I were to make a recommendation for someone who just wants to GAME on this platform, I would recommend getting either one of the mATX boards or just sticking with the MSI X99 SLI board due to it's excellent price and no frills feature set. Even then though the mainstream platforms (including AM3+) are consistently performing just as well in games, if not better in some instances.

    Think of it like trying to game on a Tesla or FirePro card... your frame rates are going to blow HARD using it there, but in heavy compute loads in a workstation environment or with REALLY heavy rendering being done the cards shine.
