    "Captain Marvel" Trolled the Trolls with a $455M Global Launch

    I'd say it was a solid 7/10 (Where 5/10 is average), it was worth a watch and had some funny moments. Samuel L Jackson played the part well. Does not hold up to the best in the franchise (ragnarok was a lot better) but origins are always tricky. Criticise Tom Cruise too much and a certain...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Rumored with 1536 CUDA Cores

    Nvidia's clocking is held back by the process, not by heat so these will clock the same.

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup

    There will be times with the edge of NVME type performance where it will suffer but no where near as much as that intel chip did for sure in terms of memory latencies.

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup It's an io die and a CPU die basically. Yes it's different of course, never designed for more cores to be attached but it's not a million miles away.

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup

    If they refresh the cores to go with the ddr5 transition they could also refresh this platform with the modular design by keeping this I/O chip. It gives a lot of flexibility and should allow them to keep the apu side bang up to date. AMD are still way smaller than Intel and even best case...

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup

    We also know for sure 8 core is not what they are topping out at and that means that a second chipset is an option making 16 cores the max possible.

    AMD Previews 7nm Ryzen CPUs at CES

    2700+ would have melted through the motherboard with a fan less little block. Had an slk-800 on my 2500+ Barton core ;)

    I got CrossFire to work on 2200g

    The APU has 8x lanes IIRC? The second 16x slot is running off the chipset. So you 8xCPU/4x chipset which is a pretty well known crossfire configuration with known downsides in games.

    Intel Allegedly Readying 10-Core Comet Lake-S Processors

    To those saying this would be glued silicon, this is talking about 2 ring buses, not dies. Like the X299 chips on the HCC die.

    First AMD Navi GPU, "Navi 12," Will Have 40 CUs

    You don't turn around a deficit like they have so quickly. If they can compete in the 1070/2070 space with a GDDR6 based card to keep costs reasonable then they could get a foot hold in.

    AMD EPYC Rome 64-Core Server Versus Intel Dual Socket Xeon Platinum Benchmark

    I am interested how everything is interconnected. Do each pair of chips communicate together? Do they each have access to a pair of DDR channels as a priority? A deep dive is going to be very interesting.

    AMD Unveils World's First 7nm Datacenter GPUs with PCIe 4.02 Interconnect

    That thing will have NOTHING on the Intel chip in terms of size though, that package is going to be HUGE with 1400mm^2 silicon on it.

    NVIDIA's Secret GPU: TU106-400A vs. TU106-400 Benchmark

    The cards do have a different VRM and power limit causing the biggest difference however. With appropriate cooling it would be interesting to examine unlocked vs unlocked and how artificial the current limits are. I would guess around 20-30mhz with decent cooling would be the actual difference.

    RTX 2080 Ti RMA Rate "Under 0.01%," GTX 1080 Ti Stock Almost Gone

    As they said in the report, 0.01% because we are so early on. It's too soon to judge that number.

    AMD’s Navi Will Be a Traditional Monolithic GPU

    The issue you have are effects that are temporal in nature. For the original scan line interleave times were simpler, now you have effects that rely on the data from neighbouring pixels which make this impractical. After this you have effects that rely on data from the previous frame (the...

    Intel X299 Chipset and Intel Core i7-7740K Spotted in the Wild [Rumor]

    It's the same die wired on an X package. Dual channel memory, 16x to slots, 4x to chipset, dual channel memory. Just more power pads and package tweaks with a soldered IHS. Any changes to the die and it may as well be true Kaby-x they wont go to the expense of developing a truly new core for...
