    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Samsung 950 PRO; Plextor m6e and m8pE. Those boot from the drive. All the others require magic like modding uefi bios or booting from a usb uefi hack

    Navi 5700 die size, and implications.

    You mean like NVIDIA did with their "successful" 10xx series?:ROFLMAO: AMD was at less than 0.01% of the server CPU market. It will end the decade above 10%. Consumer CPU market? Already ahead of Intel on sales. GPU market has competition from $100 to $700. Navi will just guarantee that...

    GTX 1080 ti / AMD Radeon 7

    No matter how tech savvy a [H] member is, truth is sometimes we forget the basics. This is what i do every time i get a new video card or a new display: - go to and run the full suit of tests, wuth double care to gamma, contrast, black level and white...

    AMD announces Radeon Pro Vega II Duo, a dual Vega 20 graphics card

    You are absolutely correct. The "real" machine learn cards are Google's TPU's, an ASIC. Tensor cores are just the best we have on consumer hardware to run neural net code. This links explains a bit how neural nets work, which in turn makes one understand why tensor cores are much better than...

    AMD announces Radeon Pro Vega II Duo, a dual Vega 20 graphics card

    I am sorry, but real life projects like Leela Chess Zero experienced exponential perfomance increases on machine learning results after tensor cores were introduced. Lc0 is a perfect project to compare machine learning performance among GPUs because: -Fully open source -Runs on Linux and...

    Navi 5700 die size, and implications.

    Until very recently AMD has sold every card they built. What AMD really needs is a card that the market wants to buy, for mining, for machine learning or for gaming. AMD built a card that is more or less competition to the RTX 2080. Every one of them was sold hours after went on sale. Tell...

    AMD announces Radeon Pro Vega II Duo, a dual Vega 20 graphics card

    Give us a machine learning GPUs and then we call it a real competition. there was a time when i purchased GPus looking at a FPS graph. Now i only look at how fast it runs Leela Chess Zero.

    Very Excited About Upcoming 7nm Ryzen, but...

    And that is what a rumor mill does. be patient and wait for real life benchmarks. there is a rumor of up to 15% better IPC, which would cause all of your complains moot.

    Very Excited About Upcoming 7nm Ryzen, but...

    This is talking about the end of Moore's law. Most likely TSMC will milk 5nm adding + signs to the end of the node name until Intel catches up. And Intel won't have 7nm until at least 2021. The TSMC node that i believe we will see a lot is 6nm, which can be used as a direct replacement for...

    Julian Assange Arrested

    Name one. :angelic: Oh, you can't :rolleyes:, because its "classified" :brb:. This lie goes to the same place the lie "Assange is a rapist" has gone: to the Huge pile of crap mehrikans believe as defense of liberty.

    AdoredTV pre Computex roundup Zen 2 leaked information

    Clock, not feautures, will decide how much the gaming market wants those CPUs. I don't give a damm about NVMe RAID. But 16c/32t boosting at 5.1Hz it an instant [H]ard on.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Stonehearth. Its a kind like a 3d version of Dwarf fortress; On hard, it is an exercise on watching how your settlers are going to be butchered.

    Anandtech: Intel Details Manufacturing through 2023: 7nm, 7+, 7++, with Next Gen Packaging

    AMD will be on 5nm long before that comes to pass . TSMc is already on risk production at that node:

    gave up on turbo, memory latency is off the charts. it is slower for main usage scenario (chess engines), but quite a bit faster for gaming.
