    (Rumor) AMD's Upcoming Flagship GPU to feature 8192 RDNA stream processors

    Are iphones on 7nm? What about most Snapdragon CPUs?

    (Rumor) AMD's Upcoming Flagship GPU to feature 8192 RDNA stream processors

    Yeah that sounds more likely, targeting enterprise market instead of consumer.

    (Rumor) AMD's Upcoming Flagship GPU to feature 8192 RDNA stream processors

    Choo choo, looks like another round of hype train of AMD flagship GPU coming up again. From the original post translated: "AMD's 7nm Navi family already has two series of RX 5700 and RX 5500. It is mainly positioned in the market of 3,000 yuan or less. High-end graphics cards lack the power...

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    Dude that explains quite a lot! I am nowhere near the math foundation of a pure computer science specialist. I was wondering how the heck did a lot of my tools suddenly run faster on Intel system with avx512. I guess all those linux updates and patches made improvements at the close-to-metal level?

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    TR system was way cheaper per workstation, which is why I helped build so many TR systems. At that time buying Skylake-X with those stupid pricing is just big fking no. Problem is, Intel has slashed price on current gen CascadeLike-X almost in half. This makes these new Intel HEDT ones very...

    If thinking like that makes you happy then sure~

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    I see you got a custom loop. The 1950X I am using is cooled by NZXT X62. Maybe that is why your AVX2 boost can go higher? Do you max out all 32 threads?

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    I just observed quite a large CPU frequency drop when I specify AVX2 during my pipelines. From ~3.7GHz all core turbo down to 3.35GHz all core turbo when I max out all 32 threads

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    Threadripper's AVX2 also has internal AVX offset. Would love to test TR3 versus CascadeLake-X. At the same time I am not spending my own dime doing the comparison. I will wait for some richer labs to investigate first. :D At the same time Intel's Deep Learning Boost on CascadeLake-X seems to...

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    Faster than AVX2 enabled CPUs despite clocks or offset. I am talking about all stock settings. OC is strictly prohibited on lab HEDT computer. Purely Skylake-X 16 core versus 2950X or 1950X.

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    I would not say it is niche in HPC. At my university more than half of the nodes are saturated with varies form of bioinformatics job: biomedical imaging data analysis and intergration; DNA/RNA/Protein sequencing; Protein modeling; Population genetics; neural network based multiomics cancer...

    Blizzard's Account Deletion Mechanism Conveniently Breaks Down

    Man you gotta handed it to the propaganda machine for being so powerful these days. You can figuratively track the social consensus on a matter of subject based on how government wants you to think. I am 100% sure the Chinese government are doing the exact same thing as well though since the...

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    If the workloads utilize any form of AVX512, Intel nodes runs circles around TR system with same core config. Not sure what field you work in. In my area we are starting to see wide spread adoption of AVX512 in codes which gives AVX512 capable Intel system a huge boost in performance. The same...
