My music PC is shared with my Windows 10 PC, and I have to physically switch to the music SSD, which runs Server 19, AO Core, Jplay Femto, Minority Clean 28.
The PC uses an AMD Athlon 200 GE, which is a modern, low power CPU in the Ryzen range. By chance, it is the ideal music processor, with integrated graphics and 35w TDP. So it runs cool and costs around £40.
I have been planning a dedicated music PC for a while and would like to use the same processor again. Any views? Why does nobody use AMD?
The motherboard is a full size MSI 350 Gaming Pro. Would switching to a small form factor be beneficial?
I could simply follow the many recommendations of the Forum, and fit an intel mobo. But I am a long term, dedicated AMD fan. And I love the sound of my current setup.
