AMD seems to be willing to grant more freedom to its buyers because it wants more buyers and markets anyway. The current Radeon 6900 XT seems to be a bit slower than the very top end, I expect the next generation 7900 XT will fulfill all the expectations including the mining.

[/CODE]Be aware that server grade CPUs will most likely require ECC RAM, and that is significantly more expensive than RAM without error correction. Dell want just over £500 ($709 USD) for a single 32 GB stick of DDR4 ECC RAM for this Dell 7920 tower workstation. Even third party (Kingston) RAM is about £180 for 32 GB from a reseller. A distributor is a bit cheaper, but they can't currently get any 32 GB RDIMMs from Kingston.

I hope I can get the DDR5 memories by the time I purchase my next PC if possible. Nvidia Geforce RTX 4090 will be available at that time.

AMD Threadripper 5970X should be able to finish 1 PRP test of M168,xxx,xxx every 4 and a half day, so good enough to me.
