    Question Is putting in RAM with a higher speed different to overclocking the processor or the same thing?

    I was suggested to put into my potential build 3600 ram instead of 3200 ram on a Threadripper 3960x system to lower latency but is this overclocking or would it force it as opposed to changing the voltage settings on the processor? Can you overclock with 3200 ram in the system? Can you not be...

    Question For the following content creation would a AMD 3950x and Quadro RX 5000 be better than a AMD TR3 3960x with Quadro 4000x or Gforce 11gb 2080 ti?

    Question Is there a way to get Thunderbolt working on an AMD motherboard?

    I am very interested in building a workstation with these new Threadrippers AMD announced today, but we use thunderbolt a lot in our current Mac setups, and I had heard Intel did not license Thuderbolt to AMD (despite claiming they would make Thunderbolt open source 2 years ago), so you can't...
