    Scientists May Have Discovered Universal Memory, DRAM Replacement

    Universal Memory? I need that. I know I go to the Memory subforum and go, "Why am I here?"

    Man Busted for Playing 'Apex Legends' on Airport Screen

    This speaks to an unserved market. To increase foot traffic in a venue you need a draw. Would be nice to have a "Gamer's Dungeon" in a bar let's say. Edit: And yes, I claim (open) copyright for the name. It goes along with my plan for a place called "Day Traders $VIXN". The lawsuit would be free...

    Ryzen R5-1600 AF

    Since BIOS identifies via microcode it wouldn't matter. Better perf with newer BIOS probably.

    China-Based Zhaoxin Targets 2021 for 7nm CPUs With PCIe 4.0, DDR5 Support

    This is not AMD tech. This is the remnants of VIA which used Centaur designs and was bought by a China company. Not sure if these can be sold out of China. HYGON is the AMD joint venture which uses Zen1 tech and Radeon tech for graphics, not sure if Zen2+ or other has been licensed.

    3950x Overclocking guide needed!!

    The only way to rule the CPU out is try another board if you have one.

    Anyone else eagerly awaiting Threadripper 3960x results?

    So, no backward compatibility was my point. This was the issue for the incremental upgrader. Edit: This issue has not been spoken to, am I correct?

    Anyone else eagerly awaiting Threadripper 3960x results?

    My point was to buy the platform for the future. Hell if you could throw in a 1900X and wait it would be worth it.

    AMDs 2nd “golden age” has arrived

    It's demand for all of the newer products including EPYC which uses the high bin chiplets. The production ramp takes time with this kind of demand. That's why they delayed til next week. High margin parts selling high around black Friday. 3900X supply caught up within weeks. Supply chain is what...

    3rd gen Threadripper, big fail and missed opportunity for AMD.

    The memory controller is on the processor. DDR5 is a different pinout and a different animal. Edit: AM3 processors had a DDR2 and DDR3 controller on the die for backwards compatibility.

    3900x lowers its clock speeds?

    Maybe lap the heatsink on the AIO. I've seen some warped castings before and even a small burr.

    US Navy just patented a very compact fusion reactor.

    Liquid salt Thorium reactors can actually burn through the backlog of nuclear waste. Waste products from LST reactors are removed, which have much shorter half lives, and fissile materials returned to the salt matrix. A idea abandoned because the fuel is much harder to weaponize? You be the...

    Ryzen 3950X Build Help

    Have to agree that SA is mearly speculating. Demand is so high for EPYC that they need all the 8 core chiplets they can get apparently. I still think there is a process improvement coming. Possibly see a second stepping. There always is a second stepping.

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    Mav451 was referring to the content of the article posted involving process improvement. While NKD was talking about next year's 7nm+ improvement. The subject is on the current node and I believe 3950x and Threadripper. Edit. And I believe TSMC talked about lead times being extended, not turn...

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    Since the process improvement was already available at the end of July, time for the decision to be made, employing the EOL enhancements and 2 months for production, November sounds about right.

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    Since we are only seeing stepping 0 one has to figure newer stepping are in the offing. May be that newer chiplets for the 3950x could have moved to a new stepping or employed something like this...

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    Shouldn't have a problem getting six out of 8 cores for the 3900x models. Epic is on a tear too. I think it's demand.

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    I doubt it is Fab capacity as it is high demand and spinning out lower binned dies to increase yields as the up binned dies are cherrypicked for the higher margin parts.

    Goes back to Pentium 4 as Intel speak was "Mhz matters", yeah, with a 10 stage pipeline and poor performance. Clock speed touting is ignorant. I thought computer nerds were smarter than that.

    AMD Announces RX 5000 Series Graphics processors at Computex - Demos RX 5700

    It's not nonsense. Fabrication of stacked chip with TSVs is difficult and expensive but has less latency and can pack more in less space. HBM is still in it's infancy and will be around on package for a long time.
