Re: Another "Time to upgrade" - 12900 vs 5950 and motherboards

A few things if you go to Youtube look for a channel called Actually Hardcore Overclocking. He routinely discusses VRMs when  he breaks down motherboards. These days a 14 phase board is pretty low end but he'll also tell you it's likely overkill at even 14 phase. He is mainly breaking down motherboards from the overclocker view point so will write off many things that  a normal user might appreciate. He still talks about not even using NVME yet but an NVME drive will make your system not just faster but noticablly more useable.

Network speed isn't really about connecting to the internet. It's about connecting to your NAS or in general to your home network. Even with HDD approaching 20TB there are people that need to put a bunch into a raid not just for size but speed.  You don't want to slow yourself down trying to connect via USB or some of the now slower ethernet speeds.

You can put the video you're editing on to a 1 or 2 TB NVME but you can easily have tens of TBs of archival footage. This is only going to get worse with video resolution climbing.

I don't think very many people are using multiple GPUs in normal systems anymore.  Maybe some high end AI servers.
