I question if even THQ is running the show as far as the servers. Normally with a takeover you move your stuff to what you have your stuff. This never happened. I would guess it is still novalogic that is running the server. Just any new titles that come out will be THQ doing. If...............

Still waiting on Microsoft to finish Server 2019. Microsoft pulled 2019 the same time they pulled the Windows 10 fall update. Hardware is already put together but waiting for a bios update as well prior to deployment.

Any reason you ask?

P.S. this isn't just one server. The same specs will also replace website/TS3/Mail Server as well.

Well.... still waiting on microsoft to release server 2019. If you have the assurance program you can download it again. However I don't see the main stream selling the server software yet.

AMD is releasing new products around the CES time frame. January 8 through the 11th. This means I will upgrade the processors to the latest version which will be AMD 3600G.

I currently have 2400g in the servers which is a 4 processor 8 cores total. The 3600g has 8 processors 16 cores. That is a nice bump ;-).

That means as far as Microsoft server license goes would max out the standard 16 core license.

Update....
P.S. well not sure when the graphics version will be released. Some say at CES others are saying not till the 3rd quarter. GRRRR gotta love the who knows when leaked information lmao.

Getting closer to making this reality. Ran into some odd issues with video and black screens. Who ever thought it was a great idea to display a black screen when a monitor isn't hooked up to a dvi/hdmi connector should be shot. I didn't have to do that with the last servers 4 years ago. I swear sometimes we go backwards. Anywho they make dummy dvi and hdmi plugs to trick the os/video card drivers to think there is a monitor plugged in.

So glad I didn't make an 80 mile trip to the datacenter to find out when I login with remote software all I get is a black screen!
