My 5950x can sustainably make plots in under 1250 seconds in Ubuntu, using 128GB Ram and a single Rocket Sabrent 4 2TB.
But!! My motherboard uses a Realtek R8125 chipset for the 2.5Gbe Ethernet and this is not supported in Ubuntu! I spent days (literally) trying to install drivers to get Ubuntu to read this device but couldn’t get it to work. I once managed to get it to show up in Network settings as 2500MB/s but it never worked for actual transfers.
This is a real blocker because at 1200ish seconds I produce plots faster than I can offload them to my farmer machine, 2 feet away.
Did anyone else encounter this and solve it ?
I am using the Aorus Master x570 motherboard.
