    New: Epyc 7F - higher clocks and lower core counts

    Many of you were asking about the lack of a higher clock, lower core count Epyc when Rome launched for certain professional applications where cores are not important but I/O was, or where clocks and large ram pool/ECC could be useful, I was sure it was coming later and said so - sure enough...

    New AMD ES GPU beats 2080Ti by 17% on OpenVR GPU Benchmark leaderboard

    A small crumb none the less but one to stoke the fires of speculation. This is in line with many [H]'rs predictions of speed ballpark for big Navi. Note that this benchmark can only be compared res to res. ES is usually for characterisation by OEMs so at best 2-3 months or more before launch...

    Reliable phones that don't bootloop, have a good DAC and a headphones jack..

    LG V10 decided to finally boot stick/loop. Pondering hot air solder repair or just get another phone. Sick of replacing phones every few years and other than the shitty solder issue on these it's a great phone and does everything I need. Any suggestions? Heard Motorola typically tops...

    HDMI 2.1 120Hz Adaptive 4K OLED goodness: LG 2019 updates C&D models!

    This might be what many of you are waiting for, input lag seems very low in gaming mode to boot. Their 2018 models were already great delivering 120Hz 1440 action which many here have had high praise for, I was content with waiting a little longer. But of course it took a damn TV manufacturer...

    GTFO - Best new 4 player co-op in a long time?

    https://steamcommunity.com/app/493520/ Early Access, indie devs, small 10 person team. Anyone here played it? I love watching gameplay; it looks like about the only online MP game that has interested me in a very long time, along with re3 resistance (similar basis). They want to fund it entirely...

    Rome doubles cache size as expected in Si-Soft ES leak

    https://www.techpowerup.com/249952/amd-doubles-l3-cache-per-ccx-with-zen-2-rome Sisoft leak of an ES shows 16mb x 16 per socket for a 2P system, which should mean that it's 2x 16mb cache per chiplet, meaning 4 core CCX is still sadly likely. Or perhaps it counts the IO chip mirroring cache...

Same chip as the CL16/3200 which sold out for $2 less (was such a...

    10Gbe fibre @ ~1Km/3,000ft - how would you do it?

    Hey [H], I'm a laser guy but don't often work with fibre, curious as to how you would go about sending data 1-2km even up to 5-10km if it's possible with similar gear as 1-2km, without wireless, as that seems to be still quite expensive and uses licensed frequencies subject to weather...

    32 Core Threadripper causes Intel to remove 28 core cpu off displays at CTEX.

    I find this interesting if true, it means Intel has had a loss of face after seeing what AMD bought to the table and decided to pull a 'shut it down' move. AMD fired the 32 core barrel quickly. Many of us were right that TR is epyc, the 'blanks' are dies (this was confirmed last year) and that...

    Possible Kitguru leak - Ryzen 2 Feb launch, 12 cores and 4.6Ghz?

    Saw this slide on Reddigg and surprised to not see it discussed here. Frequency range is close to what I expected, however think 5Ghz is BS without serious OC, single core perhaps? Doubt it. Speeds approaching 4.5Ghz should be no problem with a small process change, moving away from their...

    [H] Suggestions wanted - older 'flagship' droid WTB ASAP (NZ)

    Hello [H] The reasonably faithful SGS2 w/omega24 finally bit the dust tonight. So want to buy a used phone and as you have noticed, if that's fast enough for me (SGS2 - outside of snapchat), I don't really care about having the latest and greatest, nor do I keep up to date with latest trends in...

    New Enermax Platimax D.F. series added (1200-750W) dust cleaning mode etc

    http://www.enermax.com/home.php?fn=eng/product_a1_1_1&lv0=1&lv1=90&no=376 New 1200W, 1050W, 850W, 750W to strengthen the existing line-up of 600W and 500W models. Some really neat features, a reduced dust mode/self cleaning mode is very attractive to me, I hate pulling PSUs apart to clean...

    Navi 'nexgen' memory is SSG? Roadmap hints..

    With the SSG release today, is this what Navi will bring to dGPU? http://semiaccurate.com/2016/07/25/amd-puts-massive-ssds-gpus-calls-ssg/ To me, this seems to be the most likely as we have heard nothing else about a next gen memory from AMD side. SSG brings huge scalability and 'next gen'...

    Video showing Doom looks better on RX480 than a 970/780 initially

    Any other cards getting this than the 970/780? LOD? Id texture streaming implementation? Card limits? FPS Cheating? What? Bet it would help FPS if one was running through a level in a test. Would love to see [H] testing for this. Allegedly reported on RoTR also. More on reddig here Doom looks...

    Pascal and the Finfet wall

    After touting dual fets on the flounder edition, then releasing it with single fet design (false advertising..?), I am wondering if this was done for a reason beyond cheaping out or protecting it from idiots on the crappy thermals blower. Have we seen 2.5GHz clocks yet? Has anyone broken 2.1GHz...

    Interest in a 0db, high capacity, dust free passive solution, for top end CPU/GPUs?

    As per the title - is there any interest in this? I have been pursuing building the perfect, passive, silent system for over ten years. After considering a build with a custom fully CNC case over the last few months, plus as quiet of an h2o system as possible, after a brainwave, I finally...

    Any more Fury X2 news?

    Hello, Have managed to put off my new build for a few months, so now approaching Fury X2 launch bracket. Does anyone have any new information regarding this card? Been keeping an eye out for it but seems like total silence since June. Cheers

    Fury unlocked cores/volts and LN2'd to 1450/1000 (100% HBM OC!!)

    Finally it has happened. Can't wait to see air/water results and if people manage to get the Fury-X scooting along to. The HBM clocks are off the wagon.. http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=142320 With so much negativity around these cards from a certain camp, it's good to see...

    CFX Fury X PCI-E lane requirements

    Was weighing up Skylake or Halswell-E, for a 4k productivity/gaming rig, aim to build in the next month or so, when I decided it would probably help to hear it from the horses' mouth. Grabbed the Fury X user guide, noticed that AMD recommends the following; Interestingly, that's the very...
