Upgrading my system


All in all, I’m satisfied with this upgrade, even if it isn’t Threadripper – it’s a shame it’s only launching on 3Q17, I would’ve loved jumping on that bandwagon. Now the next improvement is to get a Ryzen RX Vega when it launches, just to upgrade my trusty R9 290 – I’ve felt it’s not too slow, but running with a display resolution of 3440×1440, it just simply can’t keep up anymore.

On a sidenote, choosing to wait for Vega is a political and personal choice – I don’t like the green team at all, with all their proprietary functionality (G-Sync, PhysX and so on). At least I can support the more open team (Red team) this way 🙂
