lazlo.vii Posted October 27, 2019 Report Share Posted October 27, 2019 After several months of illness, doctors, and other sorts of bother I finally got a chance to spend some money on the new hardware I have been wanting. I upgraded my desktop from an Intel Haswell i7-4790S to an AMD Ryzen 3700X. The memory went from DDR3-1600 to DDR4-3200 and the SSD from a Samsung Evo 850 SATA to a Samsung 970 Evo+ NVMe. I felt as though I had been transported back in time to 2004 when I went to build Firefox and it took less than 11 minutes to compile. Next month I hope to upgrade my home server to some similar CPU, RAM, and NVMe storage configuration. I have no idea what I will do with all of the computing power. It is exceeds my needs, but since my old systems are Intel based and will never get the BIOS updates they need to 100% free of L1FT and Spectre bugs I feel compelled to upgrade. When was the last time all of you were amazed at when new hardware could do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
