Expectations of Ryzen Threadripper 6000 Series
I've checked the CPU models of Threadripper 5000 Series, the base clock is still under 4.0 GHz 
https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/...eadripperCore Heard some rumor that the Threadripper 6000 Series will be clocked faster to impress the PC gamers. I believe these CPU will be able to finish the PRP tests of exponents such as M199,003,267 within 9 days. I'm waiting for the AMD RDNA 3 GPUs too.

Nvidia's rtx 3090 & 3080 were "released" mid September and AMD's rx 6900xt was "released" at the end of October and here, in March. they are still rare or downright unavailable. I could find none in stock at 3 big US retailers. ( please don't respond by saying soandso retailer had them available last week for 17 seconds before they sold out ) I would guess that RDNA should be available mid 2024 or maybe 2025.

Serious or casual, people mine whatever is profitable. ASICs have been made to mine certain algorithms applicable to certain coins. Ethereum has an algorithm designed to be somewhat ASICresistant and is ideally suited to GPUs thanks to scaling with memory bandwidth (there do exist Ethereum ASICs but they're not orders of magnitude better than GPU's and the ROI doesn't/didn't make sense unless bulk buying with other considerations like space limitations and hardware maintenance at scale). Ethereum is a popular coin with a lot of mining potential so there is high GPU demand to mine it. Miners are a common scapegoat, but not generally by GPU makers. If anything they're very quiet about selling directly to miners because it's bad press. It's possible that there's yield issues with Samsung's 8nm node but there's also just high demand, whatever the reason they aren't producing enough. There would be a shortage even without mining, Nvidia's MSRP is back to sensible territory now but there's been a few years of silly pricing (thanks partly to AMD not being competitive) so a demand for an affordable upgrade path has been building for years. TSMC's 7nm node is so constrained that AMD was never going to be a big part of the equation.

I hope that the DDR5 Memory modules will be available for the compatible motherboards and CPUs by mid year 2022. If the total memory capacities reaches 512 gigabytes per machine, the P1 factoring should be under 2 hours for most exponents under 200M.

Is that really true? Money permitting I could stuff 3 TB in my PC, but it has 384 GB RAM now. Can I actually; use that amount of RAM to speed things up? No, I'm not going to upgrade to beyond 384 GB. To go to 768 GB would be easy, but any more than that and I would have to use bigger DIMMs.

No. Or, say, partially. Having more RAM helps to run the Stage 2 of the P1 algorithm more efficient, but the approach we have here is that we prefer to keep the same time but increase the chance of finding a factor. The best tradeoff effort vs. factors found is when the two stages take about the same amount of time. If you can run stage 1 very fast, you go for a higher B1. If you can run stage 2 very fast, you go for a higher B2. At the end, having more memory will allow you to go for a higher B2, so you will have a higher chance to find a (larger) factor. But what this clown says is mostly vegetable market talk. He comes here with his loco predictions and expects us to do the work for him. Whatever math he talks, you can safely ignore.

Daytime P1/ECM stage 2 memory in GB (100.000000): Nighttime P1/ECM stage 2 memory in GB (100.000000): Max emergency memory in GB/worker (70.000000): Anyway, I can very safely increase the above to 170 GB, from 100 GB. I never gave it much thought before. Dave Last fiddled with by drkirkby on 20210505 at 08:22
