thats wild!  do you think the 16c/32t cpu's will work on these same boards or would they need newer boards with a higher power delivery?  Mine has 12 of those MOS things I think.

They are saying it will have a 13% IPC boost and 15%-20% overall performance boost over the previous generation and will also use less power than Intel's Core i9 9900k (133W vs 180W)!

Bold of you to provide that. As for your question, my answer to you would be Google. An Internet search is the best way to review the best options.

lol I mean for computer wireless internet connections, Doc.  We have so many dropouts, I'm not sure if there is some sort of interference but the connection drops 10-15 times per hour.  I also dont get AM radio stations for some reason......

I have wireless internet. it's pretty rock solid. My landline on the other hand was so unstable despite 10s of repairs it still couldn't sustain a dialup connection.  ADSL was a no go, couldn't even get it that it was so bad.  In the end even the phone stopped working so we canceled our service and run exclusively wireless and have been for a few years already.

It would be interesting to investigate and see what is disrupting your connection. Do you live near any industrial/military installations? On a related note, AM radio is generally more susceptible to interference then FM because of its modulation tone as it interacts with the environment.

I live on Long Island, There is a commercial airport here (JFK) nothing else of note so I wonder if that could be it?  Sometimes my radio turns on by itself and I can hear conversations- where from I have no idea!

For internet I have 200 mbps cable which is fine and it comes with free wifi but the free wifi is the thing that doesn't work lol

looks like you have indeed some powerful radio source around there causing your issues.
Such problems arise even in case of FM radio transmitters in proximity, those interferences can jam everything with something even remotely resembling an antenna.
In Italy there's a famous case with Vatican Radio, powerful transmitters designed to reach big part of our peninsula, so much that are pushing their signal in entry phones in Rome. You can literally hear prayers coming through doorbell speakers of condos along sidewalks.

It could be that your wifi network is overloaded because so many people are using it - especially if you live in the city. Try getting a private wifi?

Yes the public wifi is no good here, I did buy a router to create a private network connection- that has drop offs too- but not as bad (maybe 1 an hour?)

One of the powerful radio sources seems to be police radio, I get their transmissions on a regular basis and sometimes I can even pick them up on my cellphone!

That's always neat. I bet in NYC and Long Island there would be a bunch of interesting stuff in the police transmissions 8-).

I remember I tuned my TV into cellphone calls before they went to digital and was still analogue cell towers.  I still remember hearing a lady saying "how's your tomatoes going?"  haha

I use wireless and it never failed on me.
What do your setups and computers look like?
I knew I was an idiot in the past, I have toned down since then.
