    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

    Well you do have a section for overclocking so how is memory any different especially when the platform is pretty memory agnostic. Glad to see you are working on a memory scaling article though. As for what is realistic for people buying; that heavily relies on recommendations from experts like...

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

    With AMD highly recommending using higher end memory I suggest testing higher clocked dimms and see what that does to performance, especially gaming. Zen in general is very memory sensitive so low latency high speed ram will go a long way

    NVIDIA Readies New GeForce RTX 30-series SKU Positioned Between RTX 3070 and RTX 3080

    They could price it this way and beat Nvidia in every segment with the exception of raytracing. However Nvidia has the big marketing engine and a much bigger userbase/fanbase. I think all for sudden ray tracing is going to become the most important thing for people and reviewers alike, simply...

    NVIDIA Reportedly Moving Ampere to 7 nm TSMC in 2021

    AMD has been beating skyake since zen1. Winning is more than just IPC. The MCM approach is what allowed AMD to win. Each generation for the past 3 years has pushed intel for more and more desperate measures way outside of their historic trends. 4 to 6 to 8 and then to 10 core flagships back to...

    AMD Launches AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors: The Fastest Gaming CPUs in the World

    This is why I said rtx3000 vs rtx2000. Cards that have the same features should be compared accordingly. Also it's for scientific purposes. I'm curious as to how much ray tracing improved and how it effects frame rates. How much ray tracing harware is required before it works parallel to...

    AMD Big Navi Performance Claims Compared to TPU's Own Benchmark Numbers of Comparable GPUs

    I have checked online and noticed that Techpowerup has higher fps averages on some of the games compared to other websites, and I couldn't understand why that was the case until today. Most use the internal benchmark suites that come with the games and that's most likely what AMD did. If you...

    AMD Launches AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors: The Fastest Gaming CPUs in the World

    So there's something that has been bothering me that I never paid attention to, and could be a big mess when big navi comes out, and that is Ray Tracing performance. In the techpowerup review for the rtx 3080, ray tracing was disabled for "neutrality purposes". How long will this be the case? I...

    AMD Launches AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors: The Fastest Gaming CPUs in the World

    AMD does not need to beat a 3080 to be a win. 3080 and 3090 are power hogs, so if amd is about 10% slower but can do it at a 250w TDP for example, then that's a huge win. If anything I really hope AMD does not go way above the power performance sweet spot.

    AMD Big Navi GPU Features Infinity Cache?

    Yeah they been saying this for months now.

    NVIDIA Could Launch GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB in December

    AMD Big Navi GPU Features Infinity Cache?

    It only burned people who for some reason think AMD need to have the fastest single GPU card on the market to compete. Reality is, most people will buy GPUs that cost less than 500. If I was AMD right now I'd take advantage of nvidia's desperate attempts to have that artificial fastest card in...

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU-Z Bench Score Leaks, 27% Higher 1T Performance Over 3700X

    At this rate you start to run into limits such as memory bandwidth and throttling of clocks. Ipc doesn't translate the same to multicore because the cores aren't even loaded near 100% to even benefit from the ipc. Zen 1 to zen 2 seems bigger because sustained multicore clocks increased...

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    I wonder if a new boost algorithm is in place to clock that high. Perhaps more like bursts or something. As for the side memory thing; I don't believe they will use both configs at the same time, rather it is believed to have 2 memory controllers, one for HBM and one for gddr6 RedGamingTech...

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    And here's a leak. Apparently it's data extracted from the kernel so who knows. It is in line with my guesstimation, with the exception of that one part with 2500mhz. We will see soon enough

    RTX 3080 Crash to Desktop Problems Likely Connected to AIB-Designed Capacitor Choice

    With all the bad press and hiccups with the rtx3000 series, AMD has the red carpet rolling for it to make a grand entrance. It's impressive how lucky they have been in the past few years. Sure they did great work, but their competition also weren't at their best.

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    Reasonable enough, it's only speculation so nothing is concrete. I just personally think it's doable. Lets lay down some of the actual facts or published info that we can relate to: RX5700 has the same number of cores as the ps5 (2304) RX5700 has a TDP of 225W RDNA2 is 50% more efficient than...

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    Oh I understood what you said, I was just pointing out that power rating and TDP are related but not the same thing. And I linked the ps4 to show the correlation that TDP rating being 50% of the complete system power rating is pretty normal. And yes we are speculating that's what most of these...

    AMD "Lucienne" Silicon to Power Certain Ryzen 5000 Series APUs

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    350w power supply /= TDP Remember power supplies don't run on 100% efficiency. also here's a link from techpowerup https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/playstation-5-gpu.c3480 And in case you believe that one isn't confirmed then take a long at this link with ps4 pro...

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    Ps5 has 36CU not 44. And since you mentioned ps5 think of this, ps5 tdp is 175w while also including 8 zen2 cores and gpu being clocked at 2250mhz in top. I think RDNA2 is looking pretty good in terms of efficiency

    AMD Radeon "Navy Flounder" Features 40CU, 192-bit GDDR6 Memory

    I highly doubt this is a successor for 5500xt. This is most likely the 6700xt and will maybe have a cut down 6600xt version. 2560 cores that's 5700xt level. Add to it the 50% efficiency improvement then you get to either clock it up or drive power down. Most likely amd will clock it up to 2300+...

    AMD "Vermeer" Zen 3 Processors Branded Under Ryzen 5000 Series?

    I kept reading Rembrandt as Rebrand lol. I urge AMD to reconsider it's naming, unless it is actually a rebrand of cezanne lol I can already imagine my youtube auto caption during AMDs presentation going like "we present to you our brand new high end rebranded processor" Makes no sense unless...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition

    Actually you are incorrect my friend. 54% the performance of 1080ti means it performs about half as fast. It's 100/54 not 100 - 54

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition

    Here you go. 1080ti came out at 700 dollars and performed almost twice as fast as a 980ti that also was 700 dollars. Then 20series came out and almost doubled prices with 2080ti at like 1200 dollars. Everyone is impressed, but in reality Nvidia just shifted back to normal pricing because they...
