    H.266/VVC Officially Revealed, Same Quality As H.265/HEVC At Half The Bit-Rate

    Unless they make the royalty situation way more easy, i don't see any chance that this will be relevant any time soon. It is kind of sad to see nice tech behind a complex paywall. Especially since it is funded by tax money for the universities that develop it.

    Core i9-10900K vs. Ryzen 9 3950X Cinebench R15 Comparison Leaked

    All stock, no OC. But i would says the 9900K is overclocked since the Z390 mainboards ignore the Intel guidlines. So it runs 4700GHz all the time on all cores. AMD cpus ran within the power limits, no PBO. All systems were running for quite some time, even under heavy load. So they were all...

    Gigabyte Says Intel Z490 Chipset Motherboards Will Support 11th Gen "Rocket Lake-S"

    I don't get it. First Intel releases a new socket for the 10th gen CPUs. Ok, normal behavior for intel, every 2 generations a new socket. But now they really try to point out, that it can be uses for 11th gen. Could it be that they do not plan, for the first time, not to go with a chipset...

    Core i9-10900K vs. Ryzen 9 3950X Cinebench R15 Comparison Leaked

    For your entertainment. 9900k --- 3900X --- 3950X Just some quick runs. Not the best thermal environment. AMD CPUs are on Air, 9900K is on 360mm Corsair AIO. Addition: The 9900K had Discord (app) open, and the 3900X has 2 browser windows with 400+ tabs (combined) open

    Intel 10th Generation Core Desktop Series Presentation Leaked

    Just check how well silicon conducts heat compared to copper. Copper is over twice as efficient in transferring heat. So a thinner CPU-die is better, and the copper does not cause a big issue. The 9900K was bad, because the heat was trapped inside the CPU-die and could not get out. Der 8auer...

    Intel Core i9-10900K and i7-10700K Allegedly Pictured

    Have you looked at the 9900K or 9900 KFprices lately. They are rising. It costs more go get a 9900K today when i got mine over a year ago. Intel has cut prices for Xeons or the x299 chips. But you hardly can get these X299 chips. Since you need a new mainboard for these LGA 1200 CPUs, a lot of...

    Rumor: NVIDIA's Next Generation GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 "Ampere" Graphics Cards Detailed

    320bit memory bus. I really hope we get more details how that bus is connected to what memory controller. I just want to rule out a mess like the GTX 970 was. @64K You skipped a few generations. The GTX 480, and GTX 680 are missing. ;)

    NVIDIA's Next-Generation Ampere GPUs to be 50% Faster than Turing at Half the Power

    I can imagine a 50% speed uplift in a best case scenario, or a 50% less power draw in such a scenario. But not both at the same time. We probably don't see this in the consumer market soon, since it will be most likely focused on the AI and Datacenter markets. And for the competition from AMD...

    Core i9-10900K up to 30% Faster than i9-9900K: Intel

    My biggest issue with the 10th gen CPUs for LGA 1200 is, that they don't offer any advantage over the 9th gen in PCI-E lanes or PCI-E version. They have Wifi 6 included, but to use that you have to upgrade your Wifi router at least. If they would release the 10 core CPU on LGA 1151 that would be...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    I would say if you run the 3d mark pcie-test, and you get above 8GB/s then your board is truely running at PCI-E 3.0 16x :) And how is this not a valid test? It is made to be comparable when you run it on different hardware :P

    Intel DG1 Discrete GPU Shows Up with 96 Execution Units

    I am a little confused now. I've checke the computational power on the AMD and Intel intigrated GPUs. it is in the 1Tflop to 2Tflop range. And that is something you can get now. Then we have the RX 570 / 5500 which have around 5Tflop. It seems to me that the 2 - 3 Tflop range will get smaller...

    Intel DG1 Discrete GPU Shows Up with 96 Execution Units

    Ok, but we still don't have any idea what we can expect out of these 768 /1536 shading units. And why is it called DG1 (Discrete Graphics 1?) intel had the i740 some time ago as a discrete GPU. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel740

    Intel LGA1200 Socket Sketched, Appears Cooler-compatible with LGA115x

    The LGA 1156 and 1155 were pretty good. They had enough mass of aluminium and even had a cooper core :)

    Intel LGA1200 Socket Sketched, Appears Cooler-compatible with LGA115x

    Looks like the LGA 1200 CPUs would fit into LGA 1151 Sockets. Now we need a pinout to see the differences between LGA 1151 and LGA 1200. If these new pins are only for the Wifi 6 which was added with LGA 1200, we could theoretically run LGA 1200 CPUs on LGA 1151 boards. LGA 1200 should have the...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    I have run the tests myself. Here you have PCI-E 3.0 16X vs PCI-E 3.0 8X. I get 12.6 Gigabyte a second compared to 6.7 Gigabyte a second. You should get around 6.7GB/s when you run at PCI-E 2.0 16X :) https://www.3dmark.com/compare/pcie/50014/pcie/50011

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    Naki, you can try to run 3dmark. Especially the PCI-E test. and you can see the real speed you get :) You should get around the speed as shown in the graph. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#History_and_revisions

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    You should be able to check that with HWinfo. Just uncheck the "sensors only" box. But there is a lot of info, have to find the right one. I think i found it.

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    I ment the Z68 Pro 3 board you should check. The Asus one shows up as intented. :) And memory does not matter for the PCI-E specs. The i9 9900K has PCI-E 3.0 and run on DDR4

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    Ok we have a disagreement then. :P And my comparison with the AM4 boards is only because you have boards that officially support gen 3, but the ryzen 3000 CPUs support gen 4. The same applies to yourZ68 board, but the board has gen 2 and the cpu has gen3. So there is one gen difference betwenn...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    Switches are in this case parts on the mainboard which can allow to run 2 PCI-E 16x slots at 8x link speed, instead of 1 PCI-E slot to run at 16x link speed. They switch 8 lanes from the first PCI-E slot to the second one. But on your board there are no switches, since you only have one 16x slot...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    Ok, i think we can agree that the Asus H81 mainbaord works correctly. Intel has just cut down the H81 platform so much that the Haswell CPUs only allow PCI-E 2.0 on that chipset. For the Z68 board, are we talking about the AsRock Z68 Pro3? https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z68...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    I still have to disagree. The last Intel platform where the PCI-E root complex was in the chipset was X58 (LGA 1366). For AMD it was AM3+ (9xx chipset). Since then the PCI-E controller has been inside the CPU. Usually running most lanes to the PCI-E slots, with 4 lanes going towards the chipset...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    I am still a little confused about the ASUS H81M2 board. It says in the specifications that it supports PCI-E 2.0. But it runs a Haswell processor, so it still should have PCI-E 3.0. At least on the lanes directly coming from the CPU. It even supports the 4790K cpu. How can a mainboard...

    GPUZ reports wrong PCI-E version on X58 Mainboard

    Ok, let's see what W1zzard says. But keep in mind, since LGA 1156 the PCI-E controller is in the CPU and has 16 lanes. From Ivy Bridge onwards these controllers support PCI-E 3.0. Before that it was 2.0.
