24 Cores, 48 Threads for $360: Dual-X99 Jingsha Motherboard vs. AMD R9 3900X

2 Просмотры
We're reviewing the Jingsha X99 "Two-Way" motherboard today, featuring 2x 12-core Intel Xeon CPUs for 48 total threads. 2x CPUs and the board cost less than one 3900X. Benchmarks within.
GN Wireframe Mousemats will be back in stock soon! Guarantee you're on the list here: We sold through fast last time, so we're taking back orders early so that you don't have to keep checking back for the restock date. The Wireframe Mouse Mat is a high-quality, durable mat with high print resolution and custom features, and quickly became our fastest-selling item on the store. (Also, if you've got a Gold Foil shirt on order, those will finish production in November!)

We previously built a dual-CPU X79 system here:

We really enjoy working with old hardware, especially when it's been reworked into a new product. A lot of these motherboards are uniquely made by ripping old chipsets from e-waste motherboards (like ones that stopped working), then gluing all the salvaged parts together into a new product. This one is the Jing4sha1 Shuang1lu4 motherboard, or the "Two-Way" dual-X99 Jingsha board. We combined it with two Xeon CPUs, but also bought a third Xeon at 14C for $70. The total cost to get the two 12C CPUs (about $100 each) and the motherboard was around $360, making this one of the cheapest ways to get so many threads. Although scavenging for retired hardware is a lot of fun, modern CPU advancements have threatened the viability of solutions like this. As such, we'll be testing it against far cheaper solutions for gaming -- like the R3 3100 and 3300X -- and more expensive solutions for work (like the 3900X).
