    Intel Core i7-12700H Beats Ryzen 9 5900HX by 47% In Leaked Cinebench Scores

    12600k desktop processor scores about 6700 points in CB20, at 130W package power or so. This ”45W” mobile processor, with identical core configuration and manufacturing process, supposedly scores 7158 points in the same test. Something does not add up. :hmm: in TPU’s 12600k test, at 4.9GHz all...

    Qualcomm Says PC Transition to Arm-based Processors is Certain, to Launch High-Performance SoCs in 2023

    Win11 does not support mixed instruction sets (i.e x86-64 & arm). That is the reason why even avx512 has to be disabled in alder lake when E cores are in use (as E cores do not support it and it’s a big no-no to mix instruction sets). They will make more E core heavy products, but never mix arm...

    NVIDIA Launches Image Comparison & Analysis Tool (ICAT)

    The mention of what people should compare against is simply unnecessary saltiness, IMO. Especially when they first state that people should just trust their eyes.

    NVIDIA Launches Image Comparison & Analysis Tool (ICAT)

    Nvidia is so goddamn salty about amd having an ”ultra quality” scaler. Laughing my ass off here.

    Quick Look: Grandview Dynamique DY3 ALR Screen

    83 or 100 inch oleds are still pretty expensive. The picture quality is pretty similar in many aspects. edit: though ABL in OLED tv’s is cancer. So a bright projector likely gives a better experience in some HDR content. SDR content at 80-120 nits should look more or less the same on both. OLED...

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    Maybe the pump isn’t plugged in?

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    Tom’s hardware managed to get their ddr5 12600k to a max. of 135 Watts. - package power. Overcloked it can probably go to 500W with liquid helium. So this cooler is a dud.

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    But you wanted to subtract 78 Watts from that. :confused:

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    But where is the over 300W load?? I need to see it. Hehe 319 - 78 is less than 300!!! Though I guess counting isn’t your forté.

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    Let’s then do some napkin math, the difference was 78 watts to the anandtech measurements. If we take the same percentage offset (77% or so) to the TPU 12600k measurement, we get a power consumption of just 174W. Quite far from your ’over 300 Watts’. The actual figure is somewhat lower, as this...

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    This is very likely what they did. As throttling based on temperature alone gives worse performance.

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    They really are not. TPU measures system power from the wall plug. That means that the PSU efficiency and VRM efficiency need to be accounted for!

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    Here, is the 12900k power consumption, in your mind, what anands tests show it to be, or what tpus tests show it to be? There is a difference of at least 80W. And considering TPUs test methodology it is likely even more as TPU tests the steady state max power consumption and not the peak. The...

    Noctua Introduces NH-L9i Low-profile CPU Coolers for LGA1700 and NA-FD1 Fan Duct

    And this noctua cooler is meant to cool the entire system?
