antinomy: So if you lack of sex, VIA's here to help you

antinomy: Nano has twice performance for same clocks against the older C7. But compatibility is a bitch. Bench(f**n)mate won't run on it, W10 didn't run too (maybe there is some build that will), some benchmarks are finicky about VIAs.

antinomy: The architecture has changed a few times. C3 is like the stone age. Superseeded by C7. Don't remember about IPC but the bus changed from P6 arch (Pentium 2/3) to quad-pumped (Pentium 4/Core2). Then it has been replaced by Isaiah architecture (VIA Nano).

austin86: yeah the c3 was a slow chip, some of the zhaoxin CPUs use VIA architecture too.

Macsbeach98: And dont go much better either

Mr.Scott: I have a few VIA's. Not much different than PIII's.

ShrimpBrime: No, haven't gotten into VIA processors actually. Figure try and recoup the spending on the board even though I really like it.

austin86: Have you ever played with VIA CPUs? they have some very low TDP. many are sub 20w

austin86: Cool idea. the b660 is a good chipset albeit a little simple. I do have a Asus csm board so my experience could be gimped.
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:06 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Try to build a sub 100w system. Then maybe sell it. Just a thought at this point. Bit have a B660-I it would work perfect with.

austin86: I almost got one of the faster Pentium's, what will you be using it for?
Aug 2, 2022 9:05:30 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I was thinking of building with a celeron or Pentium gold. Like 59 bucks for a dual core lga 1700
Aug 1, 2022 20:25:13 GMT -5
austin86: I got my 12100f on ebay for about 96 dolors before tax/shipping. its a lot of CPU for the price
Aug 1, 2022 8:09:56 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Celeron and Petium gold are both under 100 bucks. 12th gen.

george: my workshop 5600G been really rock solid, not one hick-up so far, pulls good. wife's old i3 still pulls good also, though I do not have experience of the newer i3's though.

ShrimpBrime: the kids 1st and 2nd get chips to 5000 series. APU for my Daughter I think and 5600X for my youngest son.
Jul 31, 2022 14:19:42 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: It's the fastest thing I've ever messed with. Haven't tried AMDs 3000 or 5000 series chips. I was underwhelmed by the 1st two generations that I couldn't bring myself to shell out another 350$ again. 2700X, maybe later this year, or Xmas gift I'll upgrade
Jul 31, 2022 14:19:09 GMT -5
austin86: The new 12th gens are some rather odd but good CPUs. I have a 12100f and wow is it fast for an i3.

ShrimpBrime: (continued sentencs.) By overclocking the cpu. I did manage to get decent latency as well. Totally stock system, AIDA reports nearly 100ns latency (ouch!!!) With some overclocking, get it under 60ns though. So that's good.
