With Good Reviews Can AMD’s Threadriper Challenge Intel

AMD has lifted the review NDA veil from its first Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, the Threadripper 1950X and the Threadripper 1920X, which offer impressive multi-threaded performance and finally bringing some competition to this part of the market. According to plenty of reviews from the usual suspects treated to special Threadripper samples, the cherry-picked Ryzen CPU dies, multi-die solution, a high number of cores with Simultaneous MultiThreading (SMT) and plenty of PCIe lanes to go around, AMD has...

Intel’s Core i3 8th Generation Processors Are Forthcoming

While we have already seen some details for the upcoming Core i3-8300, a couple of recent leaks show a bit more information regarding two other Coffee Lake Core i3 SKUs, the Core i3-8350K and the Core i3-8100. Spotted originally at Anandtech Forums and later further detailed over at Videocardz.com, it is now clear that Intel will push for the higher core count with its upcoming 8th generation Coffe Lake CPUs. Unlike the Core i5 lineup, which will supposedly consist of quad- and six-core CPUs, with...

IBM Improves Deep Learning

Big Blue Boffins claim to have developed technology that dramatically cuts the time it takes to crunch massive amounts of data and then come up with useful insights. If it is all true then it could mean that deep learning, the technique used by IBM, is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that mimics how the human brain works could be set to take off. IBM wanted to reduce the time it takes for deep learning systems to digest data from days to hours. The improvements could help radiologists get...

Intel Gives More Details On Its Core X Processors

Intel has announced the availability of its Core X-series processor family, which will compete with AMD’s Threadripper high-end desktop (HEDT) CPUs. The devices, which will be marketed as Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9 models, have a higher than usual TDP, enabling Intel to boost their base clock speed. They also offer what Intel calls Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, pushing clock speeds on at least one of the multiple cores to 4.5GHz, in the case of the $999 Core i9-7900X.   That 10-core, 10-thread...

Is AMD’s Ryzen A Good Fit For Linux

AMD has admitted that it has reports of segmentation faults from its Linux Ryzen customers. Apparently when it fires off too many compilation processes, the machine suffers from what AMD calls a “performance marginality problem”. It appears to only be affecting some Ryzen customers and only those on Linux. It is not an issue with Threadripper and Epyc processors are unaffected. The numbers are so small that they will be dealing with the problem on a customer-by-customer basis, and its...

Microsoft’s Surface Tablets Not So Reliable, Says Consumer Reports

The breakage rate for Microsoft Corp’s Surface devices significantly outpaces that of other manufacturers’ laptops and tablets, Consumer Reports said, adding that it was removing its “recommended” designation for Surface products. The non-profit publication surveyed 90,000 tablet and laptop owners and found that an estimated 25 percent of those with Microsoft Surface devices would be presented with “problems by the end of the second year of ownership,” according to a study...

Will Desktop Computers Grow Next Quarter?

While desktop demand was rubbish in the first half of 2017, it expected to start growing in the third quarter driven by new products from AMD and Intel for the gaming and high-end desktop markets. Digitimes researchers, talking to suppliers, said that AMD and Intel will kick off a surge in buying. AMD’s new top-end 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 12-core 1920X will hit the shops on August 10, while its 8-core 1900X is scheduled to be released at the end of August. Several vendors have...

Are Tougher Security Standards For IoT Forthcoming

US Senators are planning to introduce draft legislation next week that would require makers of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to ensure that their products are patchable and conform to industry standards for security. The legislation is a bi-partisan effort led by Democratic Party senators Mark Warner and Ron Wyden, and Republicans Steve Daines and Cory Gardner. Although relatively modest in scope, the legislation represents a first step to requiring device makers to start taking responsibility...

Does Intel’s Coffee Lake Need A New Motherboard

ASRock tweeted from its official account that Intel’s forthcoming Coffee Lake processors will not work with existing 200-series motherboards. Toms Hardware  has confirmed that the tweet was true and it wasn’t just a Donald Trump-like exec on the Twitter account. This means that if you want Intel’s Coffee Lake you will have to shell out for a new motherboard too and probably a new cooler.   Intel’s forthcoming Coffee Lake processors are built on the 14nm++ process and this will...

Did AMD Delay Its Vega GPU For Volume

It appears that AMD has previously delayed the launch of its Vega GPU in order to have good volumes at launch. According to HardOCP’s interview with AMD’s Senior Director of Global Marketing and Public Relations at RTG, Chris Hook, AMD has intentionally delayed the Vega launch in order to make sure that it  launchea with good volume. The recent popularity in cryptocurrency mining has affected AMD significantly and it was almost impossible to find some graphics cards, like the RX 580...

AMD’s Threadripper 1950X Hits 5.2 GHz

During its Capsaicin event at the Siggraph 2017 show, AMD brought a well-known overclocker Alva Jonathan, who managed to push the new Threadripper 1950X up to almost 5.2GHz on LN2.  It appears that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper will be quite popular among overclockers, at least judging from the score that Alva managed to get at the Capsaicin event at Siggraph 2017. Now known under his Lucky_Noob call-sign, Alva managed to hit 5,187MHz and get a Cinebench R15 score of 4122 points. This is also currently...
