    Re: Asus shares its Intel Z690 motherboard guide

    Well it is fine to be first out and all, but the thing is, there is no designed 5.0 GFX cards yet, and there is no proper optimization for DDR5 yet either.

    Scoped some differences with Intel and DDR4 vs 5, where 4 outperformed with up to 20%+ in some fields over 5.

    However, its nice the tech is already out, am looking forward to make my extreme 5.0 + DDR5 build... quite the leap for me gear wise and jumping 2 generations on the PCI-E front.

    Still, it must be nice for AMD to see Intel in the having to innovate (not sure that's the right word) position, having to throw spaghetti and dealing with the teething issues that come with new technology is always a bit of a gamble. More cache (3D V-Cache) is a pretty tried and true route to extra performance, PCIe 5 and DDR5 are so new there's no AIB that use the former and the latter will take time to match/beat some of the performance metrics of DDR4. And the big/little route could go either way IMO, it maybe a total flop or see people adopting it in droves.

    Waiting to be launched with the cheaper CPUs earlier next year after the early adopters get milked.

    Does it really make much difference? I'm running a PCI-e 4.0 card on 3.0 and haven't noticed any issues with doing so. Probably having more dedicated lanes would be more beneficial to some users.
