For desktop systems to get the benefits of Resizable BAR, you will need a graphics card, motherboard and graphics driver that support the feature. New GeForce RTX graphics cards starting with the GeForce RTX 3060 will have support for Resizable BAR. NVIDIA and our GPU partners are also readying VBIOS updates for existing GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards starting in March.

We have to wait on AIBs to release new VBIOS for this to work? Ugghh...

That's exactly what happened in 1999-2005.

AMD was dominating Individual sales, but individual sales were a tiny fraction of the market. Since Intel prevented them from making inroads to the OEM's they essentially never gained enough market share to remain relevant.

AMD is and has been nothing but a novelty for fan boys for a while. Unless you're doing heavy OC work or doing some niche computational stuff the CPUs are still behind even the 9th gens for gaming.

Also, with no GPUs on-chip, the clear leader for business will always be Intel.

Same with AMD vs Nvidia - Nvidia has way more R&D capital and AMD will never catch up on drivers or features with their current open source driver system.

Nice :troll:

Last I heard is intel needs a dual socket to keep up with a single Epyc.

One thing I do like about AMD is that they went super hardcore into threading after they kept getting destroyed by the threading by Intel

It's not over by all means

It's never over, but your opinion CPUs is out of touch with current reality a bit. If Ryzen has proven anything, it's that R&D capital doesn't mean shit. It's the talent you hire and the decisions you make along the way.

Talent is great but brute forced R&D will always beat out trying to utilize tricky new technology.

Multiple-chip design may get better because AMD has signaled that they have tech to quickly communicate between chiplettes but that's not going to automatically make the technology viable.

Having multiple chip designs signals that they don't have the engineering capability to make single chip designs fast enough to compete or the yields on top of that. It seems like a crutch.

Intel has proven that by trying to implement too many "tricky new technologies" in their 10nm. We all know how that turned out. Agreed.

2 Xeons == 1 Epyc
Domination of the Desktop market
Seems viable to me.

Infinity Fabric + Chiplets, what an eloquent way to increase yields and efficiency. If AMD can beat Intel at the server level and the deskop level with essentially the same CPU design iterated over and over - i believe intel is the one coming up short. Some crutch. I'll take that "crutch" any day.

Intel offerings for the last decade have been a snooze of minimal improvements, changing sockets, and lazy cash grabs. The only things interesting they have done is create a lot of hardware vulnrabilities (specter, meltdown) and that laughable monster of a cooler.
