    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    In for another one.. I already have two of these drives on my Ryzen desktop (which I bought for 149$ each from Amazon so 133$ + coupon is an awesome deal IMO). Will replace the one on my Hackintosh with this one - crossing my fingers, no issues. Opted for this one instead of the Inland...

    Star Citizen Discounts Game Packages after Making Over $7,000,000 in Nine Days

    We'll never reach space in our lifetime, and there's nothing to look forward to ( space program sucks ), this game + virtual reality scratches that itch - specially if you are a space fan. If one has the disposable income (and not go overboard), why not? Can't bring money with you when you...

    Vive Confirms Ryzen Compatibility Issues With Wireless Adapter

    Maybe related to the Linux GCC-Segfault issues on the first gen chips?

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    I received both my RMA'd chips from AMD (R7-1700X, R7-1700 - both had the SEGV issue). The R7-1700X is UA1727SUS, and the R7-1700 is UA1730SUS. So far - the 1700X passed testing, but the 1700 is still running (got 12 more hours to go). Same Stepping - Same Microcode (from AGESA 1.0.0.6a)...

    Ryzen - SMT enabled - Problem running Ashes of Singularity - Escalation DX12 benchmark - CTD.

    Loaded BIOS defaults (nothing changed - RAM is running at 2133 MT/s). My main system has 2 x 16 GB Sticks (Dual Rank Chips) My secondary system has 2 x 8 GB Stick (Dual Rank Chips as well)

    Ryzen - SMT enabled - Problem running Ashes of Singularity - Escalation DX12 benchmark - CTD.

    Update - I got the replacement R7-1700X with a build date of UA1728SUS from RMA. I installed it, set the BIOS to defaults and ran the benchmark - also CTD'd. Currently testing the CPU under Linux. Was chatting back and forth with the AOTS devel and they released a hotfix. From their...

    Ryzen - SMT enabled - Problem running Ashes of Singularity - Escalation DX12 benchmark - CTD.

    The R7-1700 (which I'm sending back as soon as I get the RMA # is UA 1714PGT - so week 14 of 2017. I haven't looked at my R7-1700X yet but it's one of the OG's (purchased it release day) so it'll have an even older MFG date.

    Ryzen - SMT enabled - Problem running Ashes of Singularity - Escalation DX12 benchmark - CTD.

    Both my machines have two sticks each - this issue happens on both of them (BIOS Defaults, nothing overclocked, XMP disabled) Machine 1 AMD R7-1700X Taichi (v3.0 BIOS) Corsair H110i 32 gigs of 2800 MT/s (Patriot Viper Elite - 2 x 16) Corsair RM650i GTX1080Ti Machine 2 AMD R7-1700 Gigabyte...

    Ryzen - SMT enabled - Problem running Ashes of Singularity - Escalation DX12 benchmark - CTD.

    I tried the new v2.4 update for AOTS:Singularity that adds VULKAN support as well. Also crashes to the desktop when SMT is enabled (Vulkan Mode). I personally believe this issue is related to the LInux Ryzen SEGV issue. Still waiting for AMD to send me an RMA number for the CPU and will test...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    The EPYC running the phoronix test suite may have to do with a specific php build conftest and may not actually be an issue. The link you posted above though from raydude is a totally different test, just basically compiling GCC (one instance with -j $NUM_LOGICAL_PROCCESORS) in a build loop so...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    Well, it's bigger than that - looks like the segfaults are also being reproduced on EPYC. And the number of "Linux" boxes in the datacenters is quite large these days. ESX for example runs the Linux kernel and tools, the googles, the facebooks - they run Linux servers. People running the...

    Ryzen Linux Users Are Still Facing Issues with Heavy Compilation Loads

    On my tests (building GCC 7.1) running on a build loop - I get Internal Compiler Errors, or one of make's utils failing and etc on both my ryzen boxes which never happens on my Intel box. Given that these tools have been around for a really long time and developers on general come to rely on...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    Prime95 is not a "general' use case from a processor use perspective, concurrent code compiles are actually doing "real" work ( lots more context switching going on, usage and flushing of caches).

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    High system CPU usage, playing that game, streaming it too as well, some windows background processes running - a program just crashes randomly and you'll blame it on the OS, or the Game as a bug.
