Nu vet vi vad han hade, tack vare en intervju, och mer!

"My 'allmodconfig' test builds are now three times faster than they used to be, which doesn't matter so much right now during the calming down period, but I will most definitely notice the upgrade during the next merge window"

"I typically build all my own machines. Usually they are frankenboxes -- I'll re-use the case or the SSD from the previous machine or something like that. This time it was an all-new build"

"I don't like having others build my machine, partly because I have my own specs I care most about, but partly I get self-conscious about getting donations that I no longer really need,"

Ok, så han har byggt upp den själv. Och...

"Before this latest build, his box was an i9-9900k. Normally, Torvalds would just pop into the local Fry's to pick up some of the more basic stuff directly, but with the virus, this time it was all from Amazon."

Han har nog köpt den. Men, det hade var alltså en i9-9900K som var för långsam. Läs hela artikeln för flera detaljer.


Skall läsas.
Då var ju inte heller hans tidigare CPU kattskit den heller, Threadripper är ett monster.
edit Lite märkligt att han inte hittade ECC-minnen, hade räckt med att fråga mig.
