    AMD always screw these things up. I can't remember any of AMD's high-end CGN cards that didn't launch with the GPU pushed way above the sweet spot.

    Have to say, however, that I really like my...

    15% IPC uplift on an x64 core is excellent when you're not taking risky shortcuts (***cough...intel....cough***). Particularly when node shrinks are not the golden ticket they used to be. It's very...

    AMD are fine in VR, a lot of the 'lol AMD sucks for VR' nonsense came about because a bunch of early VR titles used UE4 which never runs well on AMD cards.

    Eight slots with normal unbuffered DDR4 on AM4 isn't going to happen, the speeds involved are just too high to support 4 dimms per channel.

    Thing is, they don't really produce any innovations on the architecture side. A 9900K is recognisably the same architecture as a 2600K, just with more cores and a bit higher clock. In 11 years from...

    It's like the old days; AMD continually adopting new technology, taking risks and pushing forward, while Intel sits on their arse and grinds out the minimum possible upgrade with each new generation....

    That IPC increase is a killer. The 4.4GHz R5 3600X should have about the same single-thread as a 5GHz 9900X, even before the latest round of Intel security patches.

    Yes, that does seem to be the case. It's likely the fan won't spin unless you plug in a PCIe 4.x device driven by the chipset's lanes, which in practice means a 4.x capable M.2 SSD.

    The GPU side has stagnated a bit because all the R&D money was spent on Ryzen. AMD came really close to going out of business not so long ago and GPU development was cut down to the bone, the only...

    Yeah, the game is p.much a waste of time right now. CVs just dominate, other ships are damage pinatas.

    Vega 56 and 64 are EOL now, and it seems like OCUK (and their parent, caseking.de) bought up a good chunk of the remaining stock. They do ship outside the UK, so you could probably just order one...

    AMD has less stability issues than NVidia these days, and I'm not relying on anecdotal evidence saying that. One section of the company I work for builds PCs with mid and high-end GPUs in them to...

    I think there's a good chance AMD will be content to let a stock of Navi dies slowly accumulate (given that 7nm production is limited, this may be necessary) while waiting for the point Polaris isn't...

    Anyone who has a bet on May being gone before the end of the year is probably feeling quite pleased right now. Raab was the keystone, with him gone there'll be more resignations and a no confidence...

    Anyone who uses a 9900K on a board with 4-phase VRMs is going to be filling out a RMA form in a few months, imho.

    Reality isn't quite that simple. You have to consider that power cycling a PC each day makes it more likely to fail than if it is left running 24/7. If it fails it needs to be replaced with a new one...

    It's an interesting story, on multiple layers. The technical side is absolutely feasible and not as hard as it might seem. The challenge is getting the IC they used (presumably a very basic...

    Yep. I recently ordered up some brand new 65C02 processors for a project. That design is 40 years old and stays in production because there are customers still buying them in viable quantities.

    Vega is dead, basically. They're doing a 7nm shrink because the first Navi parts are pure gaming GPUs and won't be much good for high end compute work, but that's it. No more development. Polaris is...

    Yep, the first 7nm GPU is Vega 20, which AMD has repeatedly said is only going to be released as a compute-only Radeon Instinct card. My guess is the yields on 7nm for such a big chip are utterly...

    Apart from the mediocre RX560, every gaming card AMD has on the market right now is strong. RX570/580 are every bit as good as the 1060s and a shade cheaper now. The only problem AMD has is that Vega...

    I suspect NVidia's raytracing hardware will end up like DX12; the first card to support it in hardware was the 7970, but by time actual games written to correctly exploit DX12 appeared those cards...
