    Flip! Who has time to go through all that lot!?

    thats because Bulldozer was a pile of snot.

    Well Gamble, hopefully by working with Microsoft to fix the windows scheduler in Win10 1903, the need for the chiplet to request data from the other will be greatly reduced as one chiplet will get entirely saturated before the other comes into play. (That's if I'm understanding it correctly) In other news, the I/O die is 12nm, not 14nm as originally planned. Nothing of importance here just FYI. The slides in the link are an interesting read though.

    What will be favourable to AMD is that because they power the next consoles, game devs are going to optimize the engines for Zen2

    Is that latency acceptable though Dasa? Don't you just love the dig at Jen Hsun "It Just Works"

    You after that SO-DIMM.2 setup hey mate?

    Were you looking at the ASrock PG ITX?

    AMD is calling this mainstream... but until the prices reflect that, I'm not convinced. It does reflect however that the mobo manu's believe that the 3000 series are worthy of such high level boards. I would always go B series chipsets anyway as that's my price bracket and it's more than capable

    Actually I'm not so sure now. With a few different configurations it can range from high 70's to 120's. No idea what's happening here. Will have to wait and see when the parts come out I guess.

    Then again... Maybe not

    Let's see what happens when we get proper bench tests. Geek bench might still be a bit behind. And this is being tested on an x470 board. These leaks usually come out from system integrators running tests for low cost builds.
  12. During the earnings call, AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, confirmed that Navi GPU will launch this year, with launches in Q2 2019. AMD announced a great Q4 2018 and FY 2018 report earlier, showing that the company has started to gain ground and reap the benefits of its strong Ryzen lineup. While client GPU side of the business has been suffering, its Ryzen sales, datacenter GPU sales, as well as the strong roadmap, is showing that the company is definitely on the right track. While it has just launched the Radeon VII, based on 7nm Vega GPU and HBM2 memory, AMD big GPU break could be the upcoming Navi GPU architecture, with promises of scalability and next-gen memory, the only thing that we got from AMD's official roadmap. Back in October, we already wrote that AMD has 7nm Navi-based graphics card running in its lab and while it was too early to get any precise details, the rumor was that the 7nm GPU looks better than expected, whether in terms of 7nm yields or the actual performance/power is still left to be seen. We already wrote that the upcoming 7nm Navi architecture could first target the mid-range graphics market, becoming a successor to the Polaris GPU, as that is where the bread and butter is. High-end graphics cards are great for marketing but mid-range is what mostly matters. Replying to a question from Deutsche Bank's Ross Seymore, Lisa Su said that the company expects a Q1 2019 drop in GPU sales, but things should get better in Q2 when the company is expecting the retail channel to improve. Lisa Su was keen to note that the gaming growth in 2019 will be driven by Radeon VII but did also threw a curve ball by mentioning Navi launches on the gaming side. Dr. Lisa Su also mentioned the softness in the high-end gaming GPU market, and if you take into the account that her answer put Radeon VII in the same basket as the Navi for 2019, this bodes well for the possibility that Navi will target the mid-range market while Radeon VII will remain the high-end offer for this year. "We're also as we see the GPU business right now, we see the first quarter as the low point in the business with the channel getting improving as we go into the second quarter. And we have additional product launches there as well. So that's the way we would see the portfolio. And semi custom, although it's lower on a year-over-year basis, we would expect it to also increase as we go from second quarter into third quarter as well". "I think on the gaming side from what we are seeing, we did see sell out increase in Q4 versus Q3. So gamers are still buying GPUs. They may be more discerning about price points. And so I can imagine that there might be a bit more softness at the high end versus in the mid range. But we believe that we have a good understanding of what's happening in the gaming side of the business, and it will be driven. Our gaming growth will be driven by new products. We would see that as we go through this year and with our Radeon 7 launch, as well as our Navi launches on the gaming side." You can check out the full call transcript over at Seekingalpha.com.

    Interesting though Gamble. I think Jerusalem mentioned something earlier in the thread about AMD might do a low clocked chiplet and high clocked chiplet. Which, if they felt threatened by Intel, they certainly could pit one high binned chiplet as chiplet 0 where priority goes to for operations, and then populates chiplet 1 as well under full load with a lower clock speed. There are so many advantages to this chiplet design. AMD is well ahead of the game. That's why we've seen Intel snap all this industry talent. It might take 4-5 years to make something revolutionary so they know they need to get started on it now. But as the roadmap shows... won't be here till 2022.

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    Why the 1650 or DLSS?

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    AMD and Samsung team up to give Exynos a kick in the graphics Ummm.... wow!

    We won't know until reviewers get their hands on them if Zen 2 has more overclocking headroom.

    Whoops... fixed. Still wins though. Just can't wait to see proper testing!

    Look how much better the 3600 is to the 2600X AMD

    Ryzen has always been soldered so far, makes sense not to change the recipe

    A ryzen 5 3600 looks pretty tasty to me.
  21. Ice Lake performance over Whiskey Lake Yet to see how this translates. The IPC is up... but the clocks are nowhere near Whiskey Lake.
  22. So Coffee Lake gets revealed on the 21st. This will be the thread to post all the low down on it. But in addition to that... subsequent announced Lakes that Intel has confirmed. So unless you have been living under a rock.. you might have seen Coffee Lake leaks. These will be 6 core 12 thread mainstream flagships descending to fill the lineup and eliminate the dual core.. as rumoured. This will again be 14nm... but '14nm++' because it can do two roundhouse kicks... but also because the 14nm process has been further "refined" and along with the architecture (Kaby Lake being '14nm+'). In addition to this we have the just announced "Ice Lake" architecture... the 9th Core generation. This will be 10nm+ almost a double jump from Coffee Lake. Cannon Lake to be the first step to 10nm to iron out the bugs before Ice Lake. This is slated to be launched in 2018! Yes... 2018. It's apparently already taped out according to sources from Intel. In contrast... AMD has sent Zen for 7nm taping, though there is some conjecture over correct node naming.. check out the Icy Lake link. So Intel seem to be throwing everything they have at AMD. Time will tell if they drown them in releases again. Now we can post.. talk... postulate, and generally just bulldust about what is on the horizon for PC tech. Continually updated article about Coffee Lake and everything 8th Gen

    I'd be inclined to get a new one anyway. A320 are not great boards.

    You think you'll get a Ryzen Dasa?
