I was all set to get the 2700x but the (comprehensive) benchmarks from Scan on using it for audio DAW work were poor so I am now back to favouring the 8700K

It works fine in windows 8.1 so why did they cripple windows 10 this way?


The Cubase double threading issue?

Yes.

Speak to Steinberg, they have a tweak to make the system see the extra cores, they just can't publish it as it's a spec specific change.

Rest of the sequencers ore fine as far as I'm aware.

I suspect Kaine not in a hurry to review it because 2990wx won't be worth it for DAW use (four separate dies interconnected).

this particular configuration isn't as trippy as it is with separate physical cpus, so hopefully not tooooooooooo bad,eh?

Unfortunatelly Ableton (and probably all DAWs for that matter) is limited by single-core performance. A single master bus with Ozone 8 plugins is more tasking for CPU than 30 parallel instrument tracks.

However, I'm looking forward to new Ryzen next year, hopefully with significantly higher clocks.

I don't deny it can, but it is limited by longest chain performance. You can't process heavy chain of subsequent plugins on multiple cores.

Because the general public doesn't really produce anything with that hardware. They (mostly) surf/chat, and play low-end video games. Many people still need powerful hardware for DAWs, DVWs, (digital video workstations), gaming, compiling code, etc., so there will always be a need for more powerful hardware.

The desktop/laptop market is grossly underestimated because they don't upgrade every 6 months to the latest model like the phablet crowd, but they will spend $3,000 building a new pc when they do.


I made this argument to an investor a decade ago when they were talking about consumer computers getting more powerful forever .. I was like, yeah ... but at the same time computers for consumers may have mostly filled their niche. Yes, there is more computers can do, but if you separate robots and related things from actual consume desktop style computers, the desktop computer is mostly doing what it's going to do .. music production, video production, games, etc, etc ... it isn't like it is going to go outside and dig an area for your garden, or wash dishes or something. Just like a vacuum cleaner has a use, a t-shirt has a use, a bottle of shampoo has a use, computers do have a use. Yes, very versatile, but there's only so much information processing most people give a &^%$ about.

Well, that and they released it whilst I was on leave (damn inconsiderate if you ask me...) and we'd already sold out our allocation on pre-order.

My original sample was shipped off to one of the review sites in my absence by my video editing guy, so I'm just waiting on another one. I'm under the impression it should land with me today, so it'll be a few days whilst I test and write it up I imagine.

True dis. Misread your post :D A little management goes a long way once you know how, but it does fizzle creativity alot

BTW - everyone should be listening to John Coltrane's "My Favorite Things" or Summertime". I don't feel like my brain has eaten until i hear these things at least once a week
