The chips I was promoting are in this class-

The video certainly makes a good pitch for Ryzen, though I really doubt my friend will spring for dual 1080s or Titan Xs.
This guy is probably running one of the early Intel quads- does 6600 sound likely? I don't remember his current graphics arrangement. My thought, and words were that a Broadwell hex core with 4 channel memory would "blow your socks off.'
Last exchange is attached.
To thread moderator: Sorry again for the digression. Move this to the Ryzen thread, maybe.
I guess I am just now leery of AMD. I ran with them for a long time. But they disappointed me a lot over the years following Athlon and Athlon64.

SWBO's Q6600 is on its last legs and we started searching for a replacement today. If it wasn't for its unfortunate tendency to lock up and/or refuse to boot she would continue to be very pleased with its performance.

What do you believe the issue is? I have a spare Q6600 that was recently retired. I don't know what was causing my issues with it before it died. I suspect that a recent power supply failure had damaged the motherboard.
You are welcome to try the motherboard(P5K-VM) or cpu (Q6600 G0 stepping).

The system probably is just getting too old to keep fussing around with it though.

I have four. They are presently powered down because something has broke. The USB interface on the Parallella boards has never worked reliably. Check out the forum for many, many complaints about this.

Added in edit: the Epiphany is really intended for DSP workloads. It is 32-bit only and has neither division instructions nor good support for multiple precision arithmetic.

$3K is a low end motherboard, cpu & cooler, adequate ram, open frame chassis with complement of fans, power supply, set of fan guards to protect the owner's fingers and the cat's nose and paws, 4 Radeon VII gpus, OS license, and some left over for the power bill.

That recipe sounds vaguely familiar, though I have a measly 3 R7s, the maximum I could accommodate without expanding the footprint (really, 18"L x 12"W x 7"H 3D bounding box) of said build and allowing plenty of airflow to the GPUs.

I notice you mention fan guards - I've been looking for R7-suitable (or specific) ones, w/o success. Can you provide link(s)?
