    i7-8086K

    I wonder what the i7-9XXXK series CPUs will do with all core overclocking? Probably not much different until the die shrink.

    Steam Summer Sale 2018 June 21-July 6

    So far I haven't seen any games on sale that makes me go, "I have to get that for that price!" Everything that's on sale that I'd want is something I already have. I'm sure as more games go on sale I'll find something to get. I did see Voice Warrior on sale. Its a program that uses voice commands to execute key bindings and macros in games. It almost seems worth trying for the $3.99 sale price.
  3. Where is your Star Wars Galactic Empire edition Titan XP to complete the look? Is that case skin from Slick Wraps or somewhere else?

    AMD is offering a 16 core Threadripper to a few of Intel's 40th Anniversary winners https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-amd-sweepstakes-8086k-threadripper-1950x,37320.html If I won an i7-8086K I'd take the Threadripper swap deal, then resell the Threadripper to buy other hardware.

  7. Some asshole from argentina named immergefickt989809 spent the entire battle following me around and trying to push me out into enemy fire in my heavy tank and shot me with his TYpe 4. I have no idea who the player is. They weren't in any of my previous battles today. I have no idea why this asshole singled me out and had a hard on for me for the entire battle. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/immergefickt989809 Filing a ticket with Wargaming support will be 100% useless I'm sure.
  8. I was in the same situation. I was waiting for the white TG R6 or the white PC-011 Dynamic. I thought both would look good with my Asus motherboard which is white and grey digi camo. Then Newegg put the black TG R6 on sale for $119.99 with free shipping. The glass is so dark on my R6 that having a white case wouldn't matter unless I added a more lights than what comes with the AIO cooler and graphics card.

    i7-8086K

    I haven't see anything on the various hardware forums I go to mentioning this. What is the sample size? People I've seen on the forums who recently bought 8700K's are getting good overclocking results. No different than before.

    Depending on what source you go by, 80-85% of 8700K's can hit 5.0 GHz on all cores. I'm not sure if binning is required for a 1 or 2 core 5.0 GHz overclock.
  11. The i7-8086K is now on sale. Its an 8700K that has a 5 GHz single core bosot speed. MSRP is about $425 US. However for less than $425 US you can buy a delidded and binned i7-8700K that does 5 GHz on all cores. https://ark.intel.com/products/148263/Intel-Core-i7-8086K-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-5_00-GHz https://www.anandtech.com/show/12940/intels-core-i78086k-cpu-now-on-sale 8700K delidded and guaranteed tod o 5 GHz: https://siliconlottery.com/collections/all/products/8700k50g I'd like to see how well the 8086K overclocks on all cores. A representative from Intel claimed its not a binned 8700K.
  12. I'd say its a lot more than a minimal number of users. Depending on who's sales stats you believe, Premiere has 50-75% of the professional and semi pro video editing market. Premiere also is the most pirated video editing programs on torrent sites. So its going to have a major effect on many people. The update also probably made the 8700K one of the best bang for the buck CPUs when it comes to video editing.
  13. I've been keeping track of tank and battle stats since 1.01.  So far 75% of my tier 8 tank battles have been tier 10(bottom tier) 3/5/7 battles.  Tier 8 really is getting fucked over by the low server population.

      is it because of frontline?

      It started before frontline mode was available.

      I don't know, I've seen more top tier games in tier 8s since Frontline was introduced. 

      Tier 10 3-5-7 games are a lot more tier 8 demanding than Tier 8 top tier games and with the absence of many Tier 8s they can only really make Tier 8 top tier games.

  14. I get it for $40/year through a vendor on reddit /r/microsoftsoftwareswap/ Its not the clock speed that is giving Intel CPUs the big increase in performance with the latest update.
  15. ...with Adobe Premiere after the latest update that uses the iGPU on the processor for hardware acceleration. I wonder if other video encoding software will get a similar update? I updated Premiere CC today to the latest version, but I don't have any big projects to test with and without the iGPU hardware acceleration yet. I'd like to see an 8700K vs a 12700x.
