Updates to the Logical Increments Site

We’ve made some small updates to the style of Logical Increments.

If the site looks weird, like if the menu at the top is taking up a ton of space, try clearing your cache and reloading the page.

Hopefully it should be easier to navigate now, especially for new people, and should be easier to use on mobile devices.

We’re also working on more substantial upgrades. We know the site needs to be more mobile friendly, and the main parts table needs some love. (prices automatically up to date, more info displayed, finally??) Coming soon!™

Please email any problems, suggestions, or rants about the new site to contact@logicalincrements.com, or comment below. Thanks!

The Threadripper 2 Launch (a.k.a. AMD Flexes its Muscles)

TR 2990WX

AMD launched two CPUs today. The first is the 2990WX, a gargantuan 32-core/64-thread CPU $1800 ubermonster that will give every Intel board-member nightmares for the next ~2 years. Yes, you read that right: Thirty-two cores! Barely 2 years ago, a quad-core was the standard, recommended CPU for most people, and this 2990WX behemoth does not double or triple or even quadruple that: It octuples it! Maybe “octuples” is not a proper verb, but this is not a proper launch either.

The second CPU is the 2950X, a more modest 16-cores/32-threads $900 affair, but make no mistake: That makes it on par with Intel’s best consumer CPU, for half the price. In fact, if you took the time to read the reviews linked below, you will find that most reviewers enjoyed the 2950X more than the 2990WX.
