After many years of service it died? What's my choices for a new computer. Well, new motherboard etc?
I'm thinking this bit of used cheap and cheerful from ebay.
AMD EPYC Supermicro H11SSL-i + 7551P 32cores 64threads 2.0 GHz motherboard+ CPUhttps://www.ebay.com.au/itm/134125357702What you think?
You know what I think of CorelDRAW and anything AMD.
Need to do more things than Corel Draw. Ignoring that and the AMD headspace...It's $700US for 32 cores 16 threads + motherboard. The negative in the clock speed of 2.2 GHz.$4,000+ for a new 32 core, 5 GHz max.
Sounds like a lot of bang for the buck.
I agree but it's 50/50 pot luck for Drsw performance.
It's odd as hell but my wife has an AMD laptop for email/web, shopping and general BS. It runs Draw just fine even though it's AMD and not robust. I can't figure it out.
OK then we agree this is an OK experiment. It lacks processor speed but has 8 way RAM.
Yes a bang for the buck but a 50/50 chance for Draw!
