Noticed the base clock speed on those is only around 2.x Ghz

That's standard. The i7 8550U and 8650U is 1.8 and 1.9 respectively.

 

 

I guess it's to keep power consumption per core down.

Yeah... well it has to fit in that 15W envelope. But they can ramp single core performance right up. Unfortunately these aren't the 12nm refresh so they won't be able to turbo as high or competitively.

From this - my i7 7700HQ vs those new Intels. They have done well to lower power consumption, but my i7 7700HQ won't be obsolete for a while.

This is AMD and GloFo's estimation of how far behind they are now in process competitiveness.

AMD is deploying a patch for the second Spectre CPU vulnerability

 

While Intel is at the center of the Spectre/Meltdown fiasco, AMD's chips are also affected by the CPU vulnerabilities. The company previously said that the risk of exploit using variant 2 was near zero due to its chips' architecture. But in its latest announcement, it said that because both variants are still "applicable to AMD processors," it also plans to release patches for the second variant to be absolutely safe. AMD already provided PC manufacturers its fix for the first Spectre version, and Microsoft has begun rolling it out. The chipmaker also said it's working with Redmond to address a problem that delayed the distribution of patches for its older processors.

 

Since the second version of Spectre needs a different fix, AMD will provide its customers and partners for Ryzen and EPYC processors with a patch for its chips starting this week. Firmware updates for its older chips will follow in the coming weeks. If you use Linux, you might get it sooner than you think, since Linux vendors have already started releasing OS patches for the second variant. You might have to wait a bit if you're a Windows user, though, since AMD is still working out distribution timing with Microsoft.

 

Despite deciding to release a patch for version 2, the company reiterated that its chips' architecture will make it very difficult for attackers to use the exploit. It also maintained that Meltdown isn't applicable to AMD chips at all. AMD's processors aren't "susceptible" to Meltdown, the chipmaker wrote, "due to [the company's] use of privilege level protections within paging architecture." Since "no mitigation is required" for variant 3, it won't be creating a patch for the vulnerability.

 

Update: AMD clarified that it never said its chips were not susceptible to variant 2.

 

AMD slips after Microsoft stops ‘Meltdown’ patches for PCs with its chips

 

Idiots at Microsoft are patching CPU's that don't need patching.. and sending them out to users without lab testing them first.

To be fair, Microsoft wasn't expecting that many people with those old Athlons out there. I got rid of mine ages ago.

AMD's next-gen Starship, Mattise CPUs teased in HWINFO

Read more: https://www.tweaktow...info/index.html

 

AMD will be having a huge year this year, at least in their CPU department, with the release of their refreshed Ryzen CPUs and new 400-series chipsets in a couple of months. But now news is breaking of their upcoming Starship/Mattise CPUs that will be released late this year and early 2019.

 

HWINFO is now recognizing a bunch of new CPUs, AMD's upcoming 400-series chipset, and even Intel's upcoming Ice Lake-SP platform. AMD's next-gen Starship CPU is going to be a monster, offering a huge 48C/96T of CPU power rocking the refreshed Zen+ or Zen 2 architecture.

 

Yes that's right. Zen 2 chips are seeing initial software support before sampling to partners later this year. AMD on track for 2019 release.

There is actually! They sent them out with Gigabyte B350 ITX motherboards. 2 CPUs, 1 cup motherboard.


AMD's Athlon processors making a comeback as ultra-budget Raven Ridge APUs

 

With the current first generation Ryzen chips lowest price somewhere around $100, AMD could be bring the Athlon name back to fill in the sub-$100 market and compete with Intel’s Pentium and Celeron processors. As such, you shouldn’t expect any particularly capable performance from the integrated graphics, which will likely be capable of smooth video playback and little else more visually-intensive.

 

For AMD, a cheaper Athlon offering could mark a complete product stack alongside their Ryzen CPUs and Raven Ridge APUs. It makes sense now that AMD's processors are a little more established at the high-end for AMD to attempt to pull away some market share from Intel’s dominant low-end processors - which have been left largely unchallenged for some time thanks to the stunted launch of AMD’s Bristol Ridge.

2200G 2400G review

https://translate.go...MhcTO2bP-ZCeNNQ

 

looks like they oc to 3.9GHz ok at which point 2200G is a tad slower than the 1200 and 2400G is a bit slower than the 1500x

igp performance is below the nvidia 1030gt in most games but not all

 

2200G $139au

2400G $235au

 

for its price the 2200G does fairly well once overclocked assuming your happy to game at 720p

http://www.tomshardw...gpu,5467-8.html

Overclocking with AMD's Ryzen Master utility is simple. The execution cores responded readily to our efforts, and the Ryzen 5 2400G floated up to 4 GHz with a 1.4V vCore setting. We also adjusted the VDDCR SoC voltage, which is a single rail that feeds the uncore and graphics domains, to 1.25V. That allowed us to dial in an easy 1555 MHz graphics clock rate and push the memory up to DDR4-3200 with 14-14-14-34 timings.

A Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 cooler helped us circumvent thermal challenges (we measured 75°C under the AIDA CPU/GPU stress test).

 

unfortunately the people looking to get a cheap cpu\igp like this probably wont be looking to spend the extra cash on expensive ram and cooling so in a typical usage scenario it will be much slower
