Vlada011Look how some guy build Monoblock for EVGA X299 Dark.I don't know how someone who have this board could even to think on AMD.Next stage would be measure of plastic shield and I/O Port shield and building same thing from aluminum and powdercoating. RGB circus need to die. Only with this kind of work that could be reached. Because 500+ watts of heat. Slower in rendering workloads than Ryzen due to tiny cache. Slower in games than mainstream core i9 and ryzen 7nm due to mesh architecture. Way lower idle power consumption than 14nm. Security exploits. AVX bugs in the microcode. Gimped raid support without Vroc. Gimped PCI-E Bifurcation This thread is about x299s future as a competitor though not a custom waterblock someone has made or existing customers. Every point made by Wendell in that video is valid. When threadripper 7nm comes out with 64pcie gen 4 lanes x299 will have nothing to fire back with. My 3900x uses less than half the power of my 7960x @ 4.8ghz and is faster in blender due to the massive cache and faster in games. There is no place x299 can remain competitive. The x299 dark is a fantastic board one of the most stable boards i have ever owned but the cpus are absolute power hogs and there is no fix for that on 14nm, combined with the other issues it makes no sense. Content professionals will take the faster and more power efficient 7nm ryzen chips with 64pcie lanes and huge cache and gamers will either buy ryzen or 9900k i9 EVGA needs to make an AM4 and Threadripper board as intel is out of the game for a while.

Vlada011Yes, yes Ryzen iz 2 years newer so what.Maybe is better choice then i9-9900K and better choice if someone have really old platformbut no reason to owners of X299 processors upgrade to Ryzen.Bigger problem is because Intel now fish fools and not educated people who pay 3 times higher price for same performance then AMD.That's bigger problem for me, because i9 processors don't need discount, they need cut price on half or more.Who knows how many i9 will be destroyed because sellers didn't sold them and never will. I think Intel should donate to us, his fans.
zerocool101Well.....this is Awesome newz!!!! Intel cut prices in half for the new 10 series: Core i9-10980XE 18/36 $979 USDhttps://videocardz.com/82105/intel-10th-gen-core-x-series-cascade-lake-x-final-specs-and-pricing-leaked

Vlada011AMD throw in shadow X99 and X299. Without Ryzen they would dominate.Now suddenly become obvious that Intel didn't make real improvements long time.But X299 could serve until DDR5. No any reason to upgrade on Ryzen.If price of 12 and 14 cores Intel drop situation is completely different.Imagine if i9-9920X and i9-9940X drop on Ryzen price. On X299 Dark I would rather stay on Intel until real improvement with DDR5, USB 4.0 is finished, and PCI-E 5.0 is even possible. i9-9900X, i9-9820X and better models or i9-7940X, i9-7960X are competitive processors only price is unreal with performance.OK now AMD dominate but race will last forever. Excellent performance of AMD are not reason just like that to dissamble good performing computer and invest in their platforms. That could be done in any moment. If Intel continue to struggle with problems and AMD adopt DDR5 first but Intel continue to stay silent about new features then is really time to switch to AMD. Now it's not, at least for people with X99 who can't afford to upgrade fast and special owners of X299. AMD Ryzen R9-3900X is compare with Intel i9-9900K with much less number of cores and Intel i9-9900X.Stronger models with similar number of cores overclocked are competitive. AMD is much newer and it's logic little advantage.But i9-9940X overclocked 200-300MHz it's different situation. Price force a lot of people to upgrade to AMD.But if i9-9940X drop to 500$ and i9-9980XE on 750$ then a lot of people would think twice.Intel should done that instantly after presentation of R9-3900X.
Cool GTXIt is still a Great MB & already ready for 10th gen CPUs https://www.evga.com/arti...369/intel-x299-update/
FROSTYBE3RCool GTXIt is still a Great MB & already ready for 10th gen CPUs https://www.evga.com/arti...369/intel-x299-update/Every single X299 board is 'ready' for cascade lake x, it's basically the same processor as before.Intel can't fool us with these names.
