    You have mountains of hardware and instead of doing a comparison in a separate test machine you rip out the server, change the hardware and only then do you do a comparison? Linus you're a retard.

    If the faster RAM is making such a difference, wouldn't a Ryzen system with much faster RAM be even better?

    if you use 264 coddecs the gpu can help a lot on it... also... but youre using codecs that need brute force from cpus.. in this cases is better an amd processor that dont use so many shortcuts...

    Wouldn't this be a perfect workload for a 2990wx? He tried 3 intel CPU's and didn't see THAT much of an improvement. For the price of that 9990XE he could do an 24c/32c EPYC build.

    Published July 10, so probably July 3 for Floatplane, meaning actual building, recording, and most importantly part selection was done in June. I bet most of the comments are going to be complaining about not using a 3700X or 3900X.

    XMP? hmmm - one intel 5820K; 3 motherboards and the 2800Mhz ram would not go past 2400MHz (64Gb off it). 18 months of Threadripper 1920X and its been running faultlessly @ 2800MHz and the CPU does 4.2GHz on its own... with a Notctua push/pull 140 fan arrangement... EK watercooling incomming!

    i had 5820k and veneance lpx 4x4gb 2666. i could never launch it with 2666 only 2400. once i did it with 125 bclk and got 2750 but the cpu voltage was 1.9v so i ruined it with a mobo. this very ram works now on 3466mhz paired with 2200g ryzen.

    i think the only thing worse than being linus would be watching his videos for intelligent information. he literally wasted 5000 bucks to try to get his server faster and all he managed to do was 1 fucking minute faster. i'd have fired his stupid ass a long time ago, what a sorry excuse for a technician.

    Yeah, right: "we could do that... but there are advantages to (spending more money)". Some aspects of video software isn't open to interpretation, meaning even with user-settings, the way it handles transcoding has a minimum duration - no matter what hardware you happen to use.

    How does Intel Quick Sync factor into this? Using an Intel CPU with a built-in GPU (e.g. the 9900K) would enable Quick Sync and make H.264 rendering much faster. It seems Quick Sync is not used for CineForm. Are there other benefits from CineForm worth the increased rendering time? (Full disclosure: I've spec'd out an Intel-based video editing machine, but haven't purchased any major parts yet; with Ryzen 9, I'm reconsidering. My current editing rig is too old to support Quick Sync and I'm using a ProRes workflow anyway).
