Desktops are pretty much dead.

I too know this feel

I'm still on a Phenom 2 and HD4870

Save me from this feel.

staying at this level is probably why the market has stagnated

also because of dipshits like intel figuring out retards will pay for 0-5% performance increases even if it's a 30% increase in price just for the ability to overkek

>>51533025

Can a Phenom 2 seriously encode 3 movies at a time without hiccuping when doing other shit? Serious questiin. I been on my 8350 fir a couple years and forgot what it's like to have a shit cpu.

Probably because you've never known what it's like to have a decent CPU.

I've been sitting on Ivy Bridge ever since it came out, I literally see no reason at all to upgrade, same with my Kepler Nvidia cards.

>win 10 buttnet, no games, so fuck dx 12
>therefore no reason for Maxwell

Gonna sit on my Win 7 Pro, i7 3770, and GTX 680 4GB for a bit longer.

desktops arent dead and never will be
just because normies are dumb I dont see why this "Desktops are dead" has to be a meme
>>
>>51534145

>probably because

What are you talking about? My 8350 can do that without a problem. Not sure what you read that you didn't comprehend that.

This is literally my exact config. I've been considering upgrading everything so I can go from my current 150 constant fps in CS:GO to like 400.
>>
>>51534368

To have the perspective of what it's like to have a shit CPU you first must have had a shit CPU and then upgrade to a decent CPU so you can formalise what is a shit CPU.

The FX 8350 is beaten by the Phenom series in single threaded performance while having higher gigahertz per core.
>>
>>51534505

So you're saying if I drop my fx-8350 for a Phenom i would be upgrading?

I wasn't asking about benchmarks either. I could google that instead if asking 4chan.
I did anyways and your phenom > fx-8350 statement seems incorrect.
>>
Die shrinks and increased core counts have reached the point of minimum returns. We can't raise clock speeds anymore because of heat. The only thing left until we have some other substrate is architectural improvements. I don't think desktops will ever die though. If anything, we'll get more players making CPUs SoCs and GPUs now that more people can compete.
>>
>>51534719
Why don't we move on to multi-cpus in mainstream devices?
>>
>>51534461
Why would anyone need 400fps in anything? Are there even any 400Hz monitors?
>>
How would you rate the i5-4440 in the standards of today?

I don't plan on upgrading soon but it does have me wondering.

Speaking of which what's currently the most powerful PowerPC cpu on the market? Inclusive of the ps3 cell as well.

I upgraded to 980 Ti and i7 6600k right now.

desktops are going the way of linux

not dead, just finding a niche

>>51535236

it's fine for me. i'm tempted to upgrade to the 4790k but is anybody really gonna buy my used 4440 for a decent price?
>>
>>51532836
>>even laptops are seen as cumbersome and only necessary for work needs
you can blame the manlets for that
if you can't carry a 15" 5 pound laptop in a bag then please kill yourself

preach!
>>
>>51534218
That's not really a bad thing. Upgrade when you feel comfortable and ready to part with your machine parts.
>>
I've been thinking about moving to an i7 from my 4670k, but can't decide.
>>
>>51533212
it's exactly why the consumer market has stagnated

we passed a baseline usability threshold nearly a decade ago, and most people will happily run on core 2 chips until Jews somehow manage to bloat facebook out to the point that they need to upgrade to a used Nehalem system instead, and it's killing the industry

lots of /g/ for some reason believe phones and tablets are killing the desktop, but the reality is that declining sales doesn't really mean declining interest, there's just simply no reason to upgrade anymore for a basic home use case
>>
>>51535213
because it's uselessly expensive and a waste of power
