The need for hex-channel has entered the mainstream mindset?! Uwotm8?


Imho, not even quad-channel is anywhere near the mainstream market. By mainstream I'm referring to the usual gamer like me, who likes high FPS and doesn't do video editing. But even with streaming and doing video stuff, is quad-channel really offering any real performance increase?

It depends on your interpretation of mainstream. In this case, I mean a processor that sits inside Intel's "desktop" product ecosystem. IE, not intended as a server product.

For example, one could say that the RTX 2080 Ti is a mainstream version of the Quadro RTX 6000.

Perhaps things could have been worded better, but mainstream doesn't necessarily need to be equated to affordable or gaming when it comes to the PC market.

As for potential performance increases, it depends on how much your workloads enjoy memory bandwidth.

Okay, if you put it this way, it makes much more sense. For me, Xeons will always be for workstations and servers, argh.
