    That’s actually better performance than i had expected. Now to see what a delidded one does on a rog rampage vi apex board 😛

    Pointless CPU. 1950x all the way. Done with Intel and this confusing CPU market strategy. Perf x price is ridiculous. Only a bunch of rich richie will buy it, so they can say “look i have a freaking 7980xe”.

  • CNFUZD

    which is a perfectly legit reason to buy a cpu, some people get a wife just for that reason 😉

    It’s too fast! Not fair! We will attack them using our paid shills to troll the social media!

    Apex’s a disaster, it has only 4 DiMM slots, look for Extreme.

  • Asle Bie Andersen

    You don’t know what Apex is! LOL

    Is there a different Apex?

  • Eduardo Henrique

    you dont know why it exists and why it has 4 dimm slots…you’re out of the game bro

    @Eduardo : try to educate your slightly-behind-the-times techloving compadres then 😉

    @Bryan : the Apex, just like the (STILL upcoming) EVGA Dark x299 board, has only 4 dimm slots because they opted not to go with expanded memory slots, what you get is the actual quad-channel memory slots. This improves the performance of the memory, and also lowers demand on the cpu’s memory controllers. This in turn allows for both higher memory speeds (up to 4266Mhz and possibly even higher) and better cpu performance. The Apex is a board for those who want to squeeze the last drop out of their system, with better memory management, better and cleaner power delivery, and all the bells and whistles a finetuning overclocker could wish for. It’s also ridiculously overpriced, but that was to be expected.

    Apex is like a cutdown version of the rampage Six Extreme

    How are you getting so low powerconsumption with this beast?
