  1. 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

    AMD Zen

    Yeah I feel a bit ripped off by AMD. Was hoping my B450 would get me through to the 4000 series.
  3. Yeah they changed their weighting system to quad core scoring higher than anything with more cores.
  4. The power draw will be disgusting. Intel has nothing here until 10nm desktop, and even that won't help when Zen 3 comes and adds improved IPC and even higher clocks.

    Increase in R&D

    Nvidia - Turing/Volta

    Yeah I shouldn't have generalized. Ars Technica ran it on a 1060, and it the GPU was at 3% utilization. So I'd say the CUDA cores do the lifting.

    Nvidia - Turing/Volta

    Yeah apparently nVidia tries to lock it out to just RTX cards, but it works perfectly fine on GTX. Probably would on AMD cards too, it's just an algorithm, nothing unique to the hardware.

    AMD fix for Ryzen chipset issues reportedly causes new more worrying problems

    AMD Zen

    I dunno. They have great yields so... maybe they just needed the faulty ones to pile up

    Zen 2 quad-core skus possibly incoming. Could have interesting gaming performance https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/ryzen-3-zen2-based-quad-core-processors-from-amd-in-the-works.html

    I want to see something like a PS5 chip on the AM4 or AM5 socket. Now we're talkin'

    Similar encoding performance with a 140W HEDT part from three years ago. That's mind blowing!
  13. 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.

    Sorry Jerusalem... But it's all good news for AMD AMD is coming for Intel's lunch.

    Ryzen 3000 seems like just the challenge for you mate.

    Any benchmarking data dasa?

    That's a bit of a bother. i bet nVidia already has it.

    AMD Zen

    Well I think they'd have a fix for it if they knew. Same with Intel. These vulnerabilities genuinely come out of the blue for these companies which is why they try and stall while they come up with patches and hardware revisions. Yikes... Intel funding the AMD vulnerability research

    AMD Zen

    8 years of AMD processors discovered to have side channel attacks Not as serious as meltdown and zombieload apparently, but still concerning. AMD hasn't said anything about it yet.
  22. SceptreCore

    AMD Zen

    Or if you like technology
  23. Yeah well.. anyone with a chip older than 5 years old is likely a candidate for replacement anyway. Though not necessarily. I wouldn't be surprised if chips older than that are also affected.
  24. Another huge security vulnerability Affects all Intel CPUs before 10th gen.
