    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    Yes, it runs on my Intel systems just fine (ran it for two days). Additionally, if I disable opcache on my primary RIG (Taichi), can't disable it on my secondary right (no UEFI option) - looks like I gain some stability but I'm not sure if it'll eventually fail if I run it continuously for...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    Yes, and so did a couple of people on the amd community forums. I actually wrote the procedure above (LiveUSB) to make it easier for Windows guys to see if they have the same problem on their systems. A bunch of guys tried it and ran into the problem, the problem may be more widespread but...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    Half of the instructions are to write the ISO image into a USB Flash drive, and boot with the USB Flash drive. Much easier than trying to install Linux on the HDD and learning all the commands. A bunch of people tried it on reddit and ran into this issue. My two ryzen systems are...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    AMD Threadripper Socket TR4 Up Close and Personal

    Kyle, would it be possible for you to run Linux GCC Compile Stress tests after you perform your benchmarks? Would be nice if the Linux community can find out if TR is having the same problems as the RYZEN chips segfaulting during heavy compile load. No need to install it on the HDD, LiveUSB...

    AMD Threadripper Prices Undercut Intel's Core i9 by as Much as $1,000

    Why? Doesn't Ryzen 7 already do that? And much cheaper to boot platform wise? If people want more I/O and more mem bandwidth and can afford X399, pretty sure you can afford a CPU at < 999$ Threadripper will officially support ECC RAM (buffered too?), something X299 can't - should be selling...

    K, it's nice to know that the problem may be isolated to specific systems - only thing I haven't replaced so far is the CPU. Will try getting a Warranty Replacement with AMD.

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    Tried this test 10 times (this past hour), alternating in between SMT ON and SMT OFF (only thing changed in the BIOS) - rebooting in-between each time then running the bench 2 minutes in after login. Just tried mutiple back to back runs on the DX12 bench with SMT off and that works fine as...

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

    Ashes of Singularity - Escalation (v2.3 latest) - when SMT mode is enabled in the BIOS, the DX12 benchmark crashes to the desktop (after running for a bit), DX11 mode is unaffected. If I disable SMT mode on the BIOS, the DX12 benchmark completes just fine without issues. System...

    Some Ryzen Linux Users Are Facing Issues With Heavy Compilation Loads

    The problem I'm running into and the compile bug may be related.. When I enable SMT on my System (RYZEN 1700X, Taichi, X370 with 2.40 BIOS, 32GB of RAM) - nothing overclocked, just default settings, I'm unable to run the "Ashes of Singularity - Escalation DX12 benchmark" - it basically crashes...

    Project Cars 2 Game is Stunning in New Porsche Passion Trailer

    A new game being released in 2017, 2018 should be supporting DX12 or Vulkan - especially one like this which has a pretty good budget. The game already has performance issues when it rains in the game and favors NVIDIA (DX12, or Vulkan should level that playing field - can't blame it on the...

    Are you dissapointed by DX12?

    DX12 is more relevant and easier to port to than Vulkan for game developers targeting XBONE. Vulkan would probably get more support if SONY decides to use it as a the main API for building games in the PS4 (just don't see them moving away from their proprietary stuff). The only platform going...

    WTF? - Sapphire / RMA and handling of broken fans on Nitro+ RX470/RX480 - need to return card.

    I wanted a replacement but Jet.COM doesn't do that, so I asked for a refund through the site and selected the reason as a problem with the card. I'm down several dollars for the return shipping but I hope I don't get hit with the 5% fee - either way, FAIL on Sapphire for prominently...

    XFX Hard Swap fans - any solid info?

    Well, at least XFX actually have replacement fans. Sapphire on the other hand is complete FAIL with their end-user replaceable fans on the Nitro+ RX470, RX480 cards.. The RX470 I got had a bad fan (one of them is making noises, maybe bad bearings) and they want me to send the whole card in...
