    Intel "Raptor Lake" Core i9 Sample Powers Up, 8P+16E Configuration Confirmed

    tpu application bench suite is a mix of 1t and mt, we're talking strictly about mt here; it's mt that suffers from those lower PLs, so at 125w you're def seeing less than 86% of the perf from mt

    Intel "Raptor Lake" Core i9 Sample Powers Up, 8P+16E Configuration Confirmed

    intel 4 is 7nm tho (i believe? 7 is 10nm) the problem w/ the 12900k is just that its pushed way above its efficiency window like, if you were to chop it back to like 150w you'd still be at something like 80% of its performance, so yeah id imagine more E-cores being good for MT stuff

    Intel "Raptor Lake" Core i9 Sample Powers Up, 8P+16E Configuration Confirmed

    i wouldve been surprised if it actually wasnt faster than a 5950x - it better be, given the age of the 5950x now.

    Slow fan and gains from upgrading

    pointless. past a certain speed you're running into heavy diminishing returns. see this: https://www.igorslab.de/en/scythe-fuma-2-rev-b-im-test-2/3/ and this: https://www.igorslab.de/alphacool-eiswolf-2-trifft-im-test-auf-die-sapphire-rx-6950-xt-nitro-pure-ist-das-die-bessere-toxic/3/...

    Geothermal cooled 3080 power limit

    OP said it's 7 feet. that should be enough short of like, a nuclear blast or something

    Geothermal cooled 3080 power limit

    depends. looking at the op that's clearly a no, but w/ the aforementioned 1.1m or 4m, you actually might be able to heat up your surroundings enough for your cooling to fail

    Geothermal cooled 3080 power limit

    idt that'd work, at some point you'll heat up the earth enough for it to no longer be able to dissipate the heat you generate. thermal density matters. going for the highest thermal conductivity isnt necessarily always the right choice. also, copper tarnishes so yeah hf gl w/ that.

    Geothermal cooled 3080 power limit

    it's buried 7 feet underground for a reason.

    wow. been awhile since we saw you around. glad to see you're alive (and hopefully well)!

    Technical Issues - TPU Main Site & Forum (2022)

    huh, interesting i know of sites that use cloudfail but don't have dual stack enabled (and still do not), ig they removed that option at some point in time?

    Wouldn't it make sense to disable ipv6 on tpucdn.com too in that case? Because that seems to be the issue's root cause

    Technical Issues - TPU Main Site & Forum (2022)

    To elaborate on this, techpowerup.com itself is ipv4 only, but tpucdn.com has dualstack (cloudfail enables that per default; iirc you can config it down to ipv4 only but that doesnt seem to be the case here) so that would explain your observations, since if ipv6's partially borked it'd slow...

    SK hynix Platinum P41 2 TB

    what is the green curve for ... or rather, what is the red? looks like the green's for the controller then ... there's another thermal sensor for the NAND, or something? also, a power consumption test would be interesting, since the p31 was by far the most power-efficient drive out there...
