    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    This guy is using 4x32GB RAM on this board, but can't get it to run at XMP speeds. Says that should be fine for "creators" (users of Adobe products).

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    The logic is correct, but the calculation should be based on threads, not cores. The i9 has 32 threads, of which 16 are P and 16 are E. So 50% chance of randomly choosing a P core for single-threaded work.

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    The two slots are labled "PCIEX16(G5)_1" and "PCIEX16(G5)_2", so it seems so. Slot 2 doesn't have the PCIe Slot Q-Release found on slot 1, though, so maybe they are not identical.

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    So, by "Thunderbolt bus", you just mean "Extended mode" as described in the link above? Also, is this summary correct: None of the Z690 or B660 motherboards with onboard Thunderbolt work in Extended mode except (so far) the Asus boards and this is in Big Sur only. (This is because they are all...

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    What does the term "no Thunderbolt bus" mean and what are its implications?

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    PCMag is testing with Crucial DDR5-4800, which is certainly Micron chips. (Crucial is owned by Micron, I believe.) You wouldn't want this. The Corsair DDR5-6000, quoted above, or similar sticks , on the other hand, are almost certainly SK-Hynix. This would have been a better test, likely with a...

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    These are pretty likely to be SK-Hynix, which is what you want.

    Gigabyte Z690 Aero G + i5-12600K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    Will they post at above the JEDEC rate but below the XMP, at 5600, for example?

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    This kit is very likely to be SK-Hynix chips, which are the best according to Buildzoid. Edit: Again, according to BuildZoid, Asus boards will run SK-Hynix memory sticks at 6000 in 4x16GB configuration. Likely that this memory will run at XMP.

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    For DDR5, the chip manufacturer seems to matter as much as the quoted speed, with SKHynix>Samsung>>>Micron. If you buy 4800, you're likely to be getting Micron, so avoid it. Also, you must get dual rank above single rank. The primary and secondary timings (CAS latency, et al) don't matter as...

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    Have you tested anything with just 2 sticks? or other types of memory? BuildZoid made some comments on tuning DDR5 memory on Asus motherboards. Maybe you can get some ideas here:

    Gigabyte Z690 Aero G + i5-12600K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    Used RX 5700XTs going for around the $275 level.

    Z690 Chipset and Alder Lake CPUs

    Apparently AVX-512 runs faster and cooler than AVX-2, so perhaps worth considering for workloads that support it?

    Gigabyte Z690 Aero G + i5-12600K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    B+H has the Aero G, DDR4 variant, in stock now for $280.

    Z690 Chipset and Alder Lake CPUs

    The MSI Z690 Torpedo EK X board has Thunderbolt header that looks like this (image from the manual) (Carbon is similar): Which Thunderbolt AICs would be compatible with this board? This connector doesn't look at all like the cable provided with the MCI ThunderboltM3 AIC (manual) Thanks!

    Asus Z690 ProArt Creator WiFi (Thunderbolt 4) + i7-12700K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    It would be great to see this kind of comparison analysis of a i9 12900k + RX 6900 XT & DDR5 using Premier Pro, Da Vinci and Final Cut in both Win11(w iGPU) and macOS (no iGPU). Anyone keen?

    Z690 Chipset and Alder Lake CPUs

    It would be nice if you or @StefanAM could write up a guide on how to do this in Hackintool. Seems important for Alder Lake, with certain MBs, at least.

    Gigabyte Z690 Aero G + i5-12600K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    Is this something we need to configure?: Ring bus frequency is lowered to match the efficiency cores (3.6 vs 5.0), which slowdowns the overall performance.

    Gigabyte Z690 Aero G + i5-12600K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    But only only 2 sticks of DDR5. I understand many are having problems with 4, i.e., can't hold XMP speeds.

    Gigabyte Z690 Aero G + i5-12600K + AMD RX 6800 XT

    Should be exactly same EFI, etc, right?
