    AMD Launches EPYC Enterprise CPUs Available Today @ [H]

    You might want to say that GF 7LP is a turd without any proof but I think GF has improved its execution vastly over the 14nm node where they had to license Samsung 14LPP node after they failed to deliver their in-house 14XM node. The IBM semiconductor acquisition has provided GF the talent and...

    AMD Launches EPYC Enterprise CPUs Available Today @ [H]

    AMD is off to a decent start in their goal to re-enter the datacenter and high performance computing market. I think AMD will have moderate success with Zen and EPYC. AMD has said they expect to get to 10% server market share in 2019. My opinion is thats a conservative estimate and feel AMD...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 & 1400 CPU Review @ [H]

    Nothing will stop juanrga from posting the non stop nonsense he has been spamming all the internet forums with. He will ignore any benchmark which does not suit his narrative. We are already seeing high speed DDR4 3200 allow Ryzen to reduce the gap vs 7700k in games. But he will still post...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 & 1400 CPU Review @ [H]

    You have to have something constant to compare two different graphs. In the pcper bench 7700k at 3.5 Ghz shows itself to be 10% faster than the Ryzen at 3.5 Ghz. In the anandtech bench the 6700k which uses the same Skylake core and is pretty much the same chip is 22% faster than 2600k Sandy at 3...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 & 1400 CPU Review @ [H]

    very true. lesser said about that person. the better it is. AMD needs a better process to hit higher clocks. Its disappointing that the first gen Zen max out at 4 - 4.1 Ghz. I think we will see some custom tweaks to 14LPP to allow much higher frequency. I am thinking Zen 2 based Pinnacle Ridge...

    AMD Zen Shrinks x86 Area and Power

    Dude don't spread misinformation. The Skylake 4C with GT2 is 122 sq mm . http://www.anandtech.com/show/9505/skylake-cpu-package-analysis AMD's experience with dense designs like Carrizo has proved very useful. Keller said Zen is a high frequency design and dense design. Both of which have...

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING 6G Review @ [H]

    GTX 1060 is no more unequivocally faster in DX11 as recent reviews point out http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/73945-gtx-1060-vs-rx-480-updated-review-23.html Recent AAA games like COD Infinite Warfare , Titanfall2 have allowed Rx 480 to pretty much close the gap...

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING 6G Review @ [H]

    I quoted GameGPU too in my earlier post. I also did post two other reviews. Joker's 2016 games and Hardwareunboxed. What we can conclude from these reviews is the GTX 1060 and Rx 480 are dead close and well within 1-2% avg . Joker's and hardwareunboxed showed the Rx 480 edging ahead while...

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING 6G Review @ [H]

    dude there is no Gameworks like black box code in AMD Gaming Evolved titles specifically designed to harm the competition. DX12 by nature puts a lot more control in the hands of the developer and it surely makes their work more challenging if I might say. Nvidia and AMD with their DX11 drivers...

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING 6G Review @ [H]

    Oh if thats the issue then 4 out of the 7 games tested by hardocp are Gameworks titles. Lets not get into those silly arguments. Nvidia TWIMTBP and Gameworks is considered one of its strengths and here you are arguing about AMD pushing for more Gaming Evolved titles. a 1.5% lead. dude thats...

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 GAMING 6G Review @ [H]

    I think hardocp needs to keep their game suite updated with the latest games to keep their reviews relevant. Games like Fallout 4 and Witcher are way too old and newer games like Hitman, Division , Rise of the Tomb Raider have been removed from your suite while retaining older and less...

    ASUS ROG STRIX RX 480 O8G GAMING Video Card Review @ [H]

    Kyle and Brent Why do newer games like The Division get removed from your game test suite while older and less graphically impressive ones like Fallout 4 still continue to remain. btw Division also saw a DX12 patch which shows a nice bump in performance for a few cards like GTX...

    AMD Radeon RX 460 Official Specification Information @ [H]

    I think AMD's Polaris product stack is hurting because of a poor GF 14LPP implementation of Samsung's 14LPP. The fact that AMD is pumping a lot more voltage to qualify as many Rx 480 chips as possible is a good indicator. Undervolting ref Rx 480 cards leads to better performance as there is...

    Official NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Announcement @ [H]

    Your analogy is horrible. AMD implements tesselation according to DX11 spec. AMD cards perform well with tesselation unless you go for obscene tesselation with zero or negligible image quality gain. Remember Crysis 2 Crysis 2 tessellation: too much of a good thing? or the Witcher 3 Hairworks...

    Official NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Announcement @ [H]

    I think you are completely wrong here. AMD cards consistently gain perf when comparing DX12 vs DX11 perf in all games which support DX12. In the price segment that Rx 480 launched AMD wins the majority of the DX12 games currently released by a significant margin. Its a thrashing to current...

    RX 480 post mortem - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Good - DX12 performance and perf/$. Bad - Power consumption and perf/watt. Ugly - crappy reference cooler, loud noise even at stock clocks, PCI-E power overdraw, significant variance among even review samples with few unable to hit advertised 1266 Mhz boost clock in games, power usage rocketing...

    AMD in Trouble? RX 480 Powergate

    Exactly. But they ended up looking downright stupid. AMD find new ways to mess up a new product launch. I have never seen a company screw up so many times and in so many different ways.

    AMD Radeon RX 480 Video Card Review @ [H]

    AMD have a serious problem as the 6 pin Rx 480 could be deemed as non PCI-E compliant which would rule it out of any OEM system.

    AMD Radeon RX 480 Video Card Review @ [H]

    The bigger risk is that AMD cannot stop bleeding money due to uncompetitive products and end up filing for bankruptcy. I hope that does not happen but given the current state of their products it could happen. I think with Pascal and Polaris we are beginning to see the effects of a dominant cash...

    AMD Radeon RX 480 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Polaris is a massive perf/watt failure. Mid-range Pascal GP106 will run all over Polaris in efficiency. My apologies to Kyle for being rude towards his earlier statements on Polaris inefficiency. AMD has got into the habit of overhyping and underdelivering. Nvidia already had the architectural...

    How Much Does Kyle Hate AMD?

    We will see in time if Polaris 10 is a 48CU chip. btw nobody releases a board with just enough power for a GPU. 8 pin + 6 pin + PCI-E = 300w HD 7970 / HD 7970 Ghz R9 290X / R9 290 GTX Titan / GTX 780Ti GTX Titan X / GTX 980 Ti 6 pin + 6 pin + PCI-E = 225w HD 7950 / R9 280 R9 380X GTX 980 /...

    How Much Does Kyle Hate AMD?

    Sorry I would not applaud any opinions on actual hardware without real world testing and factual data even if it was a Nvidia GPU. Why don't you wait for Rx 480 perf and perf/watt comparisons from various sites before judging the card. Secondly we don't know for sure if Rx 480 is the full...

    How Much Does Kyle Hate AMD?

    Kyle is just bluffing without any facts to back his statements. Where did he get that 8000 number from ? He surely did not get it from AMD.

    GeForce GTX 1080: Most Bizarre Secret Paper Launch Ever @ [H]
