A new type of O/S is inbound.

by on Jun.13, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

I thought I would share the building of Ultimate Edition 6.9 Minimal Server running Ultimate Edition 6.9 Developer (also un-released currently). Based on Groovy Gorilla base. No GUI (Graphical User Interface) here, less resource hungry. I will not release it until it is installed on a server in the basement. Which one? It is not definitive yet.


JackHammer (main rig) is:
Operating System: Ultimate Edition Developer (6.9)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16 Core (32 Thread) – 360MM Liquid Cooled
Motherboard: Asus Hero VIII X570 (PCIE 4.0)
Memory: 16GB GSkill RGB Series 3200
Video: AMD X570 Gaming (8GB), 2 X LG 43″ Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitors
Storage: 1 X 1TB Inland PCIE 4.0 NVME, 3 X 1TB Sabrent Rocket PCIE 4.0 NVMES on a ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 PCIe 4.0 X4 Expansion Card
1 X USB 3.1 (Gen2) 6TB X 2 Seagate drives in Raid Enclosure (SilverStone SST-TS231U-C) Raid 0
1 X USB 3.1 (Gen2) 8TB X 2 Seagate drives in Raid Enclosure (SilverStone SST-TS231U-C) Raid 0
Network: 2 X 10 Gigabit SFP+ (Fibre optic), 2.5 Gigabit Onboard, 1 Gigabit Onboard
PSU: 850 Watt Rosewell Modular

Storage (server) is:
Operating System (will be): Ultimate Edition 6.9 Minimal Server
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Core (24 Thread)
Motherboard: ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS
Memory: 16GB GSkill RGB Series 3200
Video: Garbage (don’t care – this is a server)
Storage: 2 X 512GB Samsung 960 EVO’s, 5 X 8TB Seagates Raid 0, 2 X 10TB Western Digitals Raid 0
Network: 2 X 10 Gigabit SFP+ (Only using one currently), Gigabit Ethernet, 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO support, Bluetooth 5.0, TUF LANGuard and TurboLAN technology
PSU: 1,000 Watt (can not remember who made it)

Server #2: 32 Core AMD Opteron shutdown currently

Server #3: 32 Core AMD Opteron shutdown currently

Did you know shutting down Server #2 & #3 my electric bill went down substantially. Like running a microwave 24/7 & they are nasty loud (5 X 10,000 RPM fans each), the reason I threw them in the basement to begin with.

Wifey won’t let me buy more RAM (Random Access Memory) currently, in case you wonder why I am struggling in the memory department. I have been dumping money into the house. Server #3 has 128GB of ram if ram becomes a real issue. I will fire it up and put it to work. Took me 22 seconds to build the actual O/S & while benchmarking a drive, jamming out, and recording the video itself . That is nasty fast. How do you like my animated wallpapers? I wrote a package for that as well. Big things are coming.

WOW! That is a fast computer! No, a AMD Threadripper (didn’t the godfather of Linux just buy one of them) would make that look like a joke, same with an AMD Epic. A new ERA in computers is also inbound. The big difference and also why Linux has been gaining ground? Linux will use 128 Cores, thousands to be honest with you. Intel has corrupted you into thinking a quad core is enough for 10 years. I wonder why I am an AMD man. Call me a fanboy all you want. NVidia is next. Did you know I bought shares in AMD at $6.97 a share, how are they doing today as the rest of the market crashes thanks to COVID-19? Wait until the Playstation 5 drops & the new XBOX drops sporting AMD hardware, Your cellphone is also on the chopping block. NVidia will soon look like a pathetic joke. I do have a Genius I.Q. Even if I am drinking. I drink to dumb it down. Did you know next year I have been writing software for 40 Years? Building Operating Systems since 2006. If you are new to gaming I recommend you not spending so much money, a cheap gaming headset and a cheap computer can be enough.

The server side of AMD is $51 Billion dollars a year. Intel has nothing a Thread Ripper can take down from the fastest Intel Server. I have not told you how fast an AMD Epyc is at 128 Cores. They are taking Market share from Intel in large scale & big money. 3 or 4 years ago, Intel Fanboys gave me crap, welcome to reality. Nvidia a new pill is coming & it is called reality it will be hard to swallow.

Facts are facts.

Fun facts,
