    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    Not. if. The. Time. It. Takes. To. Complete. The. Tasks. Is. Shorter. If the chip wakes from idle state, completes the task, and goes back to idle in under half the time of the lower power chip it has consumed less power. Welcome to 20 years of CPU clock gating! This is the most basic...

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    There's no reason to believe it won't contain architectural changes. You didn't design it, and neither did I. So you know zero and I know zilch. You can't make any statement for or against the architecture of M1X. The Mac Mini isn't a laptop now is it? The M1 in the Air peaks around 11W. But...

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    Right. Because clock increases don't add performance. Architectural improvements don't add performance. Your focus is much too narrow. And we're still talking about 25W from your own made up numbers so we're well within the power budget limitations for a mobile device targeting 12HR battery...

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    I sense the smarmy sarcasm but no, bigger isn't necessarily faster. Maxwell vs Kepler. Navi 10 vs Vega 20. Architecture means as much or more than just stapling units together. Zen is also in the mobile and embedded space, and doing quite well might I add. Targeting down to 10W typical power...

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    The GPU doesn't need to get bigger it just needs to get faster. No, probably not. Efficiency scaling is more than just power draw from the wall. If the chip doubles in power but quadruples in performance than efficiency went up, not down. Plus Apple has a lot of wiggle room in this regard...

    Cougar Introduces MX440-G RGB Mid-tower Case

    I wasn't the only one, good. I was going to post "SDR or DDR?"

    "Old"Xeon 2697 V2 and Xeon 2650 V2"Overclocked"and Benchmarked!!!

    Very nice! In place of the 2650 V2 you can also find the 1680 V2 which is 8C/16T with an unlocked multiplier up to 57x. You can generally see those get to 4.3-4.5GHz without too much trouble, or 4.7GHz under significantly better cooling. The strap OC is definitely a hard one to get working on...

    wanna upgrade my cpu and ram? depends on asrock 970 Pro3 motherboard limits

    Important to note Bulldozer's IMC supports DDR3-1866 without overclocking. JEDEC has an SPD table for both 1600 and 1866 without XMP. Example: https://www.kingston.com/datasheets/hx318c10fb_4.pdf

    B350 motherboard with AMD 5900

    If somebody hacks an AGESA to make it happen maybe. Otherwise no. There is no plan to support Zen 3 on X370, B350 or A320 motherboards.

    AMD to Produce Reference Design RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 Only Until "Early 2021"

    R9 Fury and Fury X reference designs were unimproved by AIBs, the reference was already as good as it could be. R9 295X2 reference design was cooled better and clocked higher than the unofficial dual 290X card. Just some examples. Obviously go further back and reference is all you got.

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

    Oh no, the tens of thousands of anime/furry adult visual novels puked up in RPG maker aren't optimized for AMD! What ever will they do?! They've only got the AAA release games built for them, how terrible!

    Jonsbo Intros the UMX6 All-Aluminium Case

    Since when is a comparison to one of the best air cooling chassis ever made a "cheap shot"? Yikes. Take it easy over there.

    AMD Announces CDNA Architecture. Radeon MI100 is the World's Fastest HPC Accelerator

    No. Just like nVidia's A100 these have no render pipeline. Anything that fails out of top bin can't be sold as a dGPU, it'll just be a lower tier HPC GPGPU. There is a chance these could be sold as individual accelerators for headless compute boxes. It's not so much about how much power it...
