    Intel's Upcoming Sapphire Rapids Server Processors to Feature up to 56 Cores with HBM Memory

    It's that high because these are 99% two dies glued toghether with a DMI link/foveros. It's just unreasonable to put 40 fat x86 cores on a single die. So Intel's only option is to make smaller dies and link them. Since they don't have an energy efficient interconnect, you end up needing a ton of...

    Tried updating to the latest chipset drivers with no success. Don't have any AsRock utilities..

    AMD Updates StoreMI with Support for Threadripper Pro and SSD Partitions

    Did anyone actually manage to put this to good use? Even tho in the documentation it says that my B450 and 2400G board and cpu are supported, the installer thinks otherwise: Also didn't the original version also support ram drives to speed up SSDs? Did they remove this in the new version?

    Intel 14 nm Node Compared to TSMC's 7 nm Node Using Scanning Electron Microscope

    If the difference in node pitch is so tiny, this just means that AMD's desktop designs are just this much better than Intel's desktop (power and performance per area), and that Intel is still ahead in laptops and possibly servers once IceLake-SP is released.

    Seagate Giveaway: Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB

    I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I could sure use another ssd and 1 TB is a lot of storage!

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    Well darn, that explains it... The max for Raven Ridge is indeed 2133 with 4 SR sticks. I was looking at the manual from my phone when I was trying earlier and this is how the android reader displays it: Then I opened the exact same thing on the computer just now and the same table is...

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    @ThrashZone I'm using two kits of two memories, each is 2x8gb and they are suposedly the exact same brand and package. I know that's not ideal, I just thought that there might be a setting combination I'm missing. @Assimilator What I meant to say is, I tried 1.35V after you recommended it. I'll...

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    I didn't touch it, because I have no experience with this :D I just tried with 1.35V ddr voltage and +50mV NB voltage and everything else left on auto, and couldn't get it to post. It just gets stuck in a boot loop (memory training? ) and I powered it off after 3-4 minutes. I'll try re-seating...

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    I attached the complete html report as a zip. Here's what I get now in the Dram calculator: Should I be using the "Micron A-die" option? @theonek you're probably right, this could very well be the limit of the current setup. I was just hoping I could tweak the settings a bit and bring it...

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    @TheLostSwede this is what Thaiphoon Burner is showing me for all slots: The only thing that changes between them is the serial number and the manufacturing date, which seems logical. I see something about "8Gb A-Die (20nm) in there but not sure what's the equivalent in the dram calculator...

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    Hah, had the exact same problem when I originally set up the pc ~1.5 years ago with just two sticks - couldn't get it to boot reliably and be stable until I found some random reddit post that said to use slots A2 and B2 (also the mobo manual was absolutely horrendous). The problem now is that...

    [Solved] Can't get Asrock B450M Pro4 to post with all memory slots populated

    Hi, I can't seem to get the system to post at all using the stock settings. I'm using four sticks of 8gb, which are all the same brand and model (tho on closer inspection, the new pair has slightly different cooling case). The only way I managed to make the system boot is by reducing the ram...

    Any power efficiency test for RyZen

    Guru3d got about a 90W-ish delta between idle and and load, so if you add another 10W for base idle load, seems like it's really pulling around 95~100W max. https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-ryzen-7-1800x-processor-review,7.html

    AMD Briefly Shows Off Zen “Summit Ridge” Silicon

    Ugh you're right, I'm way off - note to self don't do math when low on caffeine. Let's try this again. We compare performance relative to a single Skylake core. The BD core has half the IPC. When we multiply that by 40%, we'd still be at 0.5 * 1.4, -> 0.7. That would mean that in the best case...
