AMD 3900x 12 core 24 thread 7nm CPU is in my hands today! Happiness is.

@dasgeek that is going to be a rendering beast! I can’t wait to see a video about it.

@dasgeek I just wanted to let you know that you can get PIA working on openSUSE Tumbleweed. I can't remember the exact steps that I took to get it working but I think this reddit post might have been what I needed.

@dasgeek I remember when 90 nm was the limit of humanity's technological expertise. We were in the future, man.

7 nm is just unfathomable. 70 angstrom?? Get outta here!

I think it was 14 or 20 nm. They are pushing it further by stacking cores vertically. Like an two storey building.

Sweet! I read on Phoronix that it might not work in new Linux / systemd. So you might need Ubuntu LTS or similar. Have you installed it yet?

@dasgeek What distro are you using? I've been reading that a lot of the recent distro releases have been having major problems with the new Ryzens. AMD are releasing new patches for motherboard BIOSes to remedy the issue.

@DirtyDean I use Arch and openSUSE Tumbleweed. I will be waiting for the BIOS update that’s supposed to come in a few days.
