#1201937 Nvidia - Turing/Volta

Posted by Dasa on 09 May 2018 - 03:06 PM

16g vram seems a little nuts given the current price but maybe die shrinks and newer tech have allowed them to use the same number of chips for 16g ending up with a price not much higher than they currently pay for 8g

and if true im very happy that they are moving forward in this area making room for higher quality textures

Added ryzen 7 as a option which obviously helps when rendering\streaming but for current games your better of putting cash towards the gpu unless your just looking for something to tide you over till next gen

by tweaking there ram they were able to get latency down to 60ns which has given the 2700x a nice boost

Ryzen 2 Pre-Test: X370 & X470 Memory Scaling on R7 2700X, 1700X


20% performance difference in age of singularity between two 3200 ram kits on x470 but only 10% slower on x370 so at least half is due to early bios

it seems sub timings make a fair difference to ryzen

you know i had a dream the other night that amd had stuck a 128m l4 cache on the 2700x and i was all excited drooling over the die pics and to be getting a amd cpu to replace my 6700k

but then i woke up all depressed to realize it was just a dream and went back to playing nwn (2002 version) on my overclocked beasti at least until the vic nordoc server went down...

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Accidentally Listed on Amazon

Amazon Germany accidentally listed the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 2600X six-core processor. According to the listing availability of the chip is scheduled for 19th April. The chip is priced at 248.93€ including taxes, which is in line with the launch SEP prices we saw in the leaked AMD press-deck posted earlier this month. The listing also mentions a handful specifications, such as the chip being based on 12 nm silicon fabrication process, and featuring clock speeds of 3.60 GHz, with 4.25 GHz turbo. Unlike with some of the higher end first-generation Ryzen retail packages, AMD will be including cooling solutions with all models of the 2nd generation Ryzen series. The Ryzen 5 2600X will include a Wraith Spire cooler, characterized by its RGB LED ring, and having a design focus on low-noise operation.

you can dial back the cost a fair bit without really losing any gaming performance

CPU: Intel Core i5 8600K $358
Mobo: ASRock Z370 Extreme 4 $219
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) 3600c16 $345
SSD: Crucial MX500 1TB $355
GPU: 11GB Geforce GTX 1080 Ti $1249
PSU: Corsair RM650x Gold $155
Case: Fractal Design Define C $135
CPU HSF: Noctua NH-D15 $115



or if you want to cut back even harder
Gigabyte Z370XP-SLI $199
2x8g 3200c16 $259
Corsair TX650M $129
SilverStone KL07B $99
Noctua NH-U14S $89


you could probably save a bit more by buying a few small things from newegg like cpu\ssd\ram or waiting for one of those 20% of ebay sales


what do you know there is one on now

Crucial MX500 Series 1TB $319.2

#1200510 Build Time: Firebreather

for gaming 8600k will spank that cpu or go 8700k if you also want to do some rendering or something with video

more cores higher ipc and lower price



Corsair H60 120mm Liquid

this would be hot and loud

a big hsf like nh-d15 would be much better

for aio to compete on a performance per db ratio you need to spend over $200


as for ram i would suggest this as 3600 15-15-15 is faster than 4000 19-23-23



or if you wanted to run dual rank ram and maybe a ram cache

this 3200c14 kit should oc fairly well if you spend some time giving it the love and vdimm it needs



as for the best tim to use ontop of the ihs

GELID Solutions GC-Extreme
Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

and if you wish to delid the cpu for a 5GHz+ oc this is what you would use under the ihs

Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut


if budget is no problem go with a 1tb 960 evo or intel 760 or 2tb and get rid of the old spinner altogether

optane wont provide a noticeable benefit to these ssd so you can drop it


maybe look at a liquid cooled 1080ti

Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce Xtreme Edition <just make sure its the aio version unless you want to build a custom loop


oh and as you would need a z370 mb to go with those cpu

ASUS Z370 ROG Maximus X Apex $479 will probably get you the highest memory oc

but ASRock Z370-EXTREME4 is exceptional value


as for a monitor upgrade you may want to wait for these hdr10 panels

i just followed a guide which could have been leading me up shit creek for all i knew



its possible there is other gpu coins to mine that may be more valuable or code that processes quicker on amd hardware its a bloody minefield full of scams and thieves


anyway this is where i ended up

2200G 2400G review



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


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

like you say there has been a lot of updates that were supposed to fix a lot of these issues so that link i provided may not be relevant anymore but his scores do seem to be in the ballpark of where you are and where you should be
