        Honestly what kind of scrotebrain buys these motherboards? Even 200 dollars is way overkill unless you have a very niche need.

          depends on the chipset, but intel HEDT chipsets generally START around $200-250 for the motherboards.

          X59, X79, X99, X299.

            Of course you’d expect higher prices for HEDT but for mainstream desktop boards like LGA1200 or AM4, above $500 is when you really start to get into straight placebo territory

          I wonder this too. As soon as the solid state capacitors became mainstream on mobos maybe 10-15 years ago its been a colossal waste of money buying a high end motherboard.

          Overclocking is dead. The sound chips reached "good enough" years ago. SLI and Crossfire are dead and were never all that popular anyway. All that shit on the highend board goes obsolete at the same time as a $60 board.

          I think it’s just idiots that see big price tag and flashy light so they buy it. idk.

            i bought a first revision x299 motherboard without vrm fans and it can handle a high wattage overclock. the idea that overclocking is dead is just for boomer-tier normies who want to press a button for free performance, i guarantee my computer is faster and quieter than most people’s in this board but normies dont want that they only care about pointing to a model number

          High end CPUs and Intel housefires need decently high end mobos (around $200ish) or they thermal throttle under all core workloads. I usually get the cheapest non Gigashyte board that has the VRM i need for my CPU.

            What? They won’t even get close due to many cheap motherboards not being able to supply the high end CPUs with enough power due to shitty cheap VRMs

              It was bought by Intel and turned into a brand name only. It used to be a NIC that actually was a PPC SoC with it’s own memory and ran Linux and could also offload far more than most ARM or MIPS woke af ethernet controllers of the time, yet they pushed it as a miracle latency reducer, which it under benchmark condition was not, but it did reduce CPU overhead more than even most enterprise NICs of that day and would also let you do things like VoIP without stressing the hosts network drivers and CPU and also do things like download torrents with the client running on the NIC even when the PC was sleeping.

                    That’s pretty neat.

                    Is that a TV tuner/capture card or what? That’s what it looks like going by the ports but I remember those usually having a shielding can for the RF shit.

                        Yes, dipshit, that’s the point I’m making. The posted card uses an SDR chipset. The "shielded RF shit" the other guy referred to is what we had *before* SDR chipsets, which is why he could not immediately ID the card as a TV card.

                Having a router with good QoS is a good way to help with latency if you share a connection with a lot of devices.

                Intel NICs are known for their lower CPU usage, but in the day and age, even the crab NICs are lightweight.

                my motherboard has a killer NIC in it, and its an x299 board from 2017. but i have no clue what it is or how to utilize it because there were no driver packages for it. my ethernet cable is plugged into the killer port instead of the regular one. but i guess by that point its just name only, huh?

                  The KillerNIC on your mobo is just a Atheros or Intel NIC renbraded. They don’t make the actual KillerNIC hardware anymore, Intel owns the brand and just uses the name and bundles bloatware with it.

            Because it wasn’t anything special brainlet. It was a server-tier NIC marketed itself towards gayming crowd.
            Networking-scrotes laughed at obvious facade and knew that gayming-scrotes were getting fleeced. They knew that they would never use the NIC for its useful purposes. The problem from networking-side is that for the same cost, you can get a real entry-level server-tier NIC with better support.
            Killer NIC was simply a problem looking for a solution.

                  The output will likely work with generic usb drivers, but you won’t get advanced settings and modes like asio or wasapi. Not sure about input at all.

      Motherboard usually don’t have the connectors you would need for external devices like MIDI keyboards, so in those situations you would actually need one. It’s niche as hell, but they still have a use.
      Also if your sound chip on the mobo gets bonked up (it happens – don’t ask me how, but my friend has a mobo like that) you don’t really have a choice.

      quality opamps aren’t snakeoil and in some soundblasters you can actually exchange them

        You also need need a decent amount of amplification power and capacitance (related to power in a round about way) for headphones at least.

        I have a Sound Blaster AE-5, and although my 300 Ω headphones sound pretty good on it with it’s dedicated headphones amp, it sound nothing like a dedicated headphone amp and dac that combined cost $500+

          To add, at 300 Ω, the AE-5 is like 87 mW. With a decent headphone amp that costs over $250 or so, at 300 Ω, they put out over 150 mW. More impactful sound, etc. However, I don’t have decent mid to low impedance headphones to really try it out.

      Of course I’m going to buy the sound card used for 25€ instead of the external USB DAC for 200€ if I just want to run monitors off them.

        An EUR200 dac should have an external power supply, especially if it’s used for desktop purposes tbh.

        Daily reminder that if you have any analog source other than your dac an integrated amp or preamp+(power amp/headamp) is recommended over powerd speakers tbh.

        Daily reminder that an internal sound card must tolerate all noise emanating from the computer, and thus they will always be inferior to an usb sound card with the same components unless the card is in a Faraday cage to reject all high frequency EM and have a half decent noise filter on both data (PCIe lanes) and power tbh.

          Funny how my cheap 25€ card is literally shielded with a DC to DC power stage.

          Why don’t even many higher end USB DACs have this? It’s annoying when I buy a $250 USB DAC and I can hear every time I move my mouse since they are both connected to the same USB controller and power source

            Because they are competing goals. You can’t throw a ton of filtering on a high speed link and expect it to work.

            He’s wrong though… the power supply is only part of the issue.

      I hate how modern sound design, especially in games, is complete garbage. Why is it that dark engine games like Thief and System Shock 2 still have far superior sound-staging even compared to games made 20+ years later? In those games you can close you eyes and still visualize your surroundings woke af on the sound. Meanwhile in all modern games everything sounds flat.

        Not really true, I’m still amazed sometimes by modern games and their soundstage. It’s rare but plenty of modern games have great sound stages and yes, I played Thief and System Shock 2 for days on end ~20 years ago.

              Sure, but those are built to be application specific, while the KillerNIC actually just ran Linux on it and was set up to use the RAM as system memory for the PowerPC chip and the Linux on it, while the Linux ran and was loaded very similarly how Sonnet PCI PPC cards ran software and interfaced to the host.

        Recording (unironically).
        Don’t get me wrong, if you have a decently fast CPU, USB interfaces are fantastic for small to mid sized projects, but if you work with larger projects, tons of resource hungry plugins, and rendering/freezing tracks annoys the shit out of you, and/or you’re running a large operation and need a shit ton of I/O, few things on this earth are better than the RME hDSPe family of cards. Or a Pro Tools HDX card if you’re an Avid paypig
