    G.SKILL Releases Optimized DDR4-3800 CL14 Memory Kit for AMD Ryzen 3000 & X570 Platform

    Hmm, I read from AMD that it was 3733 that was the maximum 1:1 that infinity fabric could handle, and that AMD was just recommending 3600 out of caution. Anything above 3733 was stated to be a ratio. I'm just as surprised to see this 3800 1:1 claim, although the difference in benches or real...

    [SOLVED] How to enable UEFI GOP on my GTX 550 Ti GPU?

    Yeah I too am using SSD's ONLY these days, but ONLY on my main desktop PC's. The one I am working on here is mainly going to be a media server (and Guest PC), so it doesn't need an SSD (or a decent gpu for that matter), but it still has one anyway. I have a ton of old OCZ Vertex 2 SSD's, Samsung...

    [SOLVED] How to enable UEFI GOP on my GTX 550 Ti GPU?

    Well that "ultra fast boot" didn't quite work out as planned. Note to self: You should read the fine print before trying something new lol. It stops me from accessing the UEFI bios during bootup and it drastically slowed down the boot process, like three times longer. There is apparently an app...

    [SOLVED] How to enable UEFI GOP on my GTX 550 Ti GPU?

    OK, I updated it with the uefi gop. Now to test it and see if GPU-Z shows it has UEFI. Thanks again. Dang you are super fast with those screenshots bud. It was too simple. Nice that people create this stuff. I LOVE Fernando's site win raid, that place has been saving me for years now. I will...

    [SOLVED] How to enable UEFI GOP on my GTX 550 Ti GPU?

    @Hood, that is fraken nuts dude to only get a 3 second difference. What is Ultra about that? Haha, this might not be worth it then. @MrGenius, Thanks man for the perfect reply. But now that I look closer to the info, it is not the same bios.rom after all. I looked at only the date and ID's...

    [SOLVED] How to enable UEFI GOP on my GTX 550 Ti GPU?

    Hello again, I have a question for some of you experts here at TechPowerUp. I see that the 550 Ti was UEFI GOP enabled by Gigabyte in 2013 I also see that others have enabled UEFI on their identical GPU that I have simply by flashing this same UEFI BIOS rom. He/she flashed a Gigabyte BIOS...

    AMD to Begin Sampling 7nm "Zen 2" Processors Within 2018 for a 2019 Launch

    Zen 2 will be my second Ryzen chip (after Raven Ridge). I hope to push it all the way until the very last AM4 flagship which I hope will be Zen 3 on 7nm++, or even on 5nm perhaps (which I doubt will be any time soon). Then I will get the very last Zen 3 refresh iteration to replace the very...

    AMD Works on At Least Three Radeon RX Vega SKUs, Slowest Faster than GTX 1070?

    NVIDIA Beats AMD to Market On HBM2 - Announces Tesla P100

    Not one person here is capable of seeing the oxymoron in the title? AMD beat NVIDIA to HBM and HBM2 by Pioneering it. NVIDIA a company ten times larger than AMD feels the need to steal someone else's technology and then using their massive amounts of money to bring it to market first, even...

    AMD Ryzen Infinity Fabric Ticks at Memory Speed

    They are bringing out quad channel memory for their High-End Ryzen Desktop Platform which will have 12 core and 16 core Ryzen parts for the real PC Enthusiast crowd, assuming that crowd exists. This not yet announced platform will require a new chipset probably X399 (or something along those...

    AMD Ryzen XFR Frequencies Revealed

    Since your building a HTPC you could probably save even more power if you wait a bit longer for Raven Ridge with Vega on board. Even HBM2 will be used on that APU, which is very interesting to say the least. Depending on power consumption it could revolutionize the HTPC ITX market and possibly...

    Oh shit, than yeah I bet someone else's life that you would get at least double the performance... lol

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    Haha yeah agreed, it would be interesting to see for sure. Let us know what you find between the two. My guess is double the performance, but it's actually probably more than that...

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    Lol, your joking right? I will assume this is a joke, but if its not... 1. 14nm vs 45nm = REALLY? 2. 40+ IPC increase, and more like 43% over the previous generation = REALLY? 3. 65 watt vs 125 watt = REALLY? With what we already know Ryzen will destroy Phenom II. So again, you must be joking...

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    If not true, its still time for me to upgrade. Even 20% slower than a 6900K and I am buying it, just because I want to switch teams and support AMD until they are out of the danger zone of collapsing as a company. Once they have decent market share back, then I will go back to my usual best bang...

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Flagship Motherboard Detailed

    Haha, very good idea actually. I mean why not? AMD is building custom integrated GPU's for them, might as well ask Intel to build some decent chipsets for AMD in return. Hmm, really good idea I think. First we need to see if this partnership with Asmedia turns out OK. Maybe they can build decent...

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Flagship Motherboard Detailed

    I don't see how they can do an Rampage Extreme using the x370. The Extreme requires far more PCIe lanes then what AMD is currently giving us. Same with the Strix and Formula. Asus would need to add additional x370 chipsets to the motherboard, maybe side by side and I don't see how that could be...

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    Hitler's response to Ryzen WARNING: At the 3:10 mark make sure there is NO coffee, tea, milk, juices, water, beer, food, cigarettes, NO NOTHING obstructing your airways please. Again at the 3:10 mark. I almost swallowed my tongue by accident though.

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Flagship Motherboard Detailed

    Yeah Ryzen has 16 PCIe lanes dedicated to graphics, 4 for NVMe, and 4 for chipset communication, and the chipset itself adds another 8 max (for the X370 anyway). Total of 32 to work with. However, like you said its not clear how exactly they will be implemented. From what I can see most of the...

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    And you were saying? AMD's stock holders demanded years ago that AMD find a way to regain market share. Their first step was the re-hiring of Jim Keller, their second step was the promotion of Lisa Su, which by the way could have been their best decision to date, and third, to under cut Intel...

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Flagship Motherboard Detailed

    With Ryzen prices looking to be 70% cheaper then Intel, I would say Yes something VERY good is about to happen. People who spent $1100 on a 8C16T CPU from Intel recently will be angry, that's one thing that is about to happen, lmao. Another thing about to happen, is that the single biggest PC...

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Flagship Motherboard Detailed

    What I am hoping for is that either the board is intelligent enough to properly assign PCIe lanes, or at least allow you to assign them based on what you have installed in said slot, but I doubt it. For example I will only have one Vega card and one 960 Pro SSD in a PCIe x4 adapter. That way...

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    Yeah I'm just guessing that since Skylake-X will have 8, 10 and 12 core variants (I actually forgot the core count so correct me if I am wrong) that AMD will have to follow suit. I surely hope x370 is just the starting point where south bridges are concerned and that we get better versions to...

    AMD's Ryzen R7 8-core, 16-thread Processor Prices Outed for Europe

    As has been stated previously, these are not meant to take on Intel's absolute Enthusiast parts a.k.a X99, even though they touted it against the 6900K. These are meant to show you that you can have similar performance for a much lesser cost to play and thus everyone can enter the game. Its very...
