So how many Ryzen 2 and 400 series AM4 MB package deals are there currently being offered.

Also will there be more testing of Vega GPU's with Ryzen 2 and 400 series MBs at some point in time. I'd like to see if there is some better performance to be had with Vega 56/64 and Ryzen 2/400 series MBs compared to first generation Ryzen/300 series MBs.

DDR4 pricing is still the 800LB Fly in the soup at the moment for those looking to build any system.

Rufus is great for ISO's onto USB's. I use it to put ESXI on the internal USB connector on my R610/R710, boot the server, then install right back on top of the USB stick.

Wendell over at L1Techs likes StoreMI and he even likes Optane with StoreMI. And now Tiered Storage for the PC just like the enterprise folks use.
