    AMD Zen Rumours Point to Earlier Than Expected Release

    i don't think there is any indication that amd is intending zen to compete with broadwell-e/skywell-e. Socket AM4 is an analogue of s1151, i.e. a single platform that covers the £45-£270 price range.

    HSA in the 14nm generation - summit ridge with [some] shaders, or, HSA from AI dGPU?

    the only thing that is gibberish is the value of HSA to AMD if it forms no part of the high-value / high-margin products.

    HSA in the 14nm generation - summit ridge with [some] shaders, or, HSA from AI dGPU?

    thank you, i do know that. my question is whether/how forms any function of their high-end/high-margin products.

    AMD Zen Rumours Point to Earlier Than Expected Release

    agreed. bristol ridge is our launch cpu for AM4. it exists already, it's called carizzo with its DDR4 controller enabled and a more generous TDP.

    HSA in the 14nm generation - summit ridge with [some] shaders, or, HSA from AI dGPU?

    What am I expecting? I am expecting to find out whether HSA is [actually] the future of AMD as they have claimed. If it is the future then we [must] presume it will one day function on their high-end/high-margin products, and not just the $300 Best-Buy boxes from which they scrape a few...

    HSA in the 14nm generation - summit ridge with [some] shaders, or, HSA from AI dGPU?

    To whom is that addressed? I have a pretty good idea of what HSA is. It appears to be widely accepted that HSA does not deliver on its promise (at least under current architecture) if there is not a tight coupling of the CPU and GPU with a shared memory allocation, and also affected by latency...

    HSA in the 14nm generation - summit ridge with [some] shaders, or, HSA from AI dGPU?

    Is HSA still AMD's future? If so, how does this work with high-end Summit Ridge CPU's? To me there are only two possible choices: 1. Everything is an APU, i.e. Summit-Ridge will come with around 256 shaders to permit HSA operation. 2. PCIe latency is overcome allowing Summit Ridge to work with...

    This 2600k is still lingering!!! :)

    the folks are still running my old Q6700 after all these years.

    AMD Zen Rumours Point to Earlier Than Expected Release

    my guess is bristol ridge to launch AM4 in Q2, with Zen to follow Q4. i seem to remember they did the same with 890FX and Thuban, platform was available before the high-end processor for it. bristol ridge won't be the most exciting thing in the world, presumably its Carrizo+, i.e. a wider...

    Acer XR341CK Freesync owners thread

    does the new AMD Crimson Freesync feature work on this monitor? It should, as i think it is a 30Hz to 75Hz Freesync range.

    Crimson Freesync option limited to 35 to 60hz only

    does the acer predator x34 monitor work with this feature?
