    PassMark Software Previews DDR5 Support in MemTest86

    These numbers are VERY low. My TGL cpu with 2x8Gb 3200 R8Gb has 1680/444/189/42 for the caches and mem, this is probably due to very low clock speeds.

    3DMark Updated with New CPU Benchmarks for Gamers and Overclockers

    Reference Liquid-Cooled Radeon RX 6900 XT Listed, Possibly the RX 6900 XTX, with Faster Memory

    No its a different die and sold only on selected cards. Its not random, they can OC core past 3Ghz given the new clockgen and memory past 2150. And many people tried to bios flash from 6900xt to 6900xtx and bricked the card, hard to flash back the previous bios

    Intel Announces 10 nm Third Gen Xeon Scalable Processors "Ice Lake"

    They have so few cores that they create 1 SKU for each 2 shaved cores, none of them is better than the Millan counterpart(pricewise) in any non AVX512 benchmark. If you dont belive me, just check anandtech or ServeTheHome.

    Intel to Launch 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Portfolio on April 6

    PCI 4 in 2021. These will probably beat rome in some workloads. A bit late to the party Intel, they will probably fare better with SR, IF they are on time.

    First Comprehensive Review of the Core i7-11700K (ES) Surfaces

    7nm way denser, so, way harder to cool, even conuming that much less power. You can OC an FX-8350 to the moon conuming 300W and yet is very easy to cool. But a r5 3600 at 4.4ghz consuming 80w is VERY hard to cool, you need to lap the ihs and put very good thermal paste / lm to keep it cool.

    Intel Rocket Lake-S Processors European Pricing Leaked

    Intel is releasing a 550 usd cpu that makes a 5800x look a good deal, 100 dollars more and is only better at gamming by a very low margin. I wont see a reason to go back intel for a while.
