     Mon, Jan 27 2020 | 2:27P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A mysterious Ryzen 5 1600 refresh made it to market late last year. Bizarrely, AMD has released a really cheap version of the Ryzen 5 2600, but just called it the Ryzen 5 1600.

Intel's Mitigation For CVE-2019-14615 Graphics Vulnerability Obliterates Gen7 i
     Sat, Jan 25 2020 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Yesterday we noted that the Linux kernel picked up a patch mitigating an Intel Gen9 graphics vulnerability. It didn't sound too bad at first but then seeing Ivy Bridge Gen7 and Haswell Gen7.5 graphics are also affected raised eyebrows especially with that requiring a much larger mitigation. Now in testing the performance impact, the current mitigation patches completely wreck the performance of Ivybridge/Haswell graphics performance."

TSMC 5nm process on track
     Tue, Jan 14 2020 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TSMC is expected to have another strong year in 2020, driven by demand for its advanced manufacturing processes, including the 5nm node that is on course to start volume production in the first half of the year. And the Taiwan-based foundry house has also obtained orders for making Intel's automotive AI chips, whose production will also involve KYEC's testing services. For the memory market, although it is heading towards recovery in 2020, a recent glitch - disrupted production at a Samsung plant due to a brief power outage earlier this week - has promised to destabilize short-term pricing and supply.

Windows 10 vs. Linux Performance On The AMD Ryzen Threadripper
     Fri, Dec 06 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X is performing faster on Linux than Microsoft Windows 10. When carrying out more than 80 different tests on Windows 10 compared to five Linux distributions, Windows 10 was beat out by the open-source competition. However, the performance loss for Windows isn't as dramatic as we have seen out of earlier generations of Ryzen Threadripper HEDT workstations. Here are those benchmarks of Windows 10 compared to Ubuntu 19.10, CentOS 8, Clear Linux, Fedora Workstation 31, and openSUSE Tumbleweed."

The latest 32-core and 24-core high-end desktop CPUs from AMD have now landed. And yes, we've benchmarked the heck out of them. The Threadripper 3970X is a 32-core, 64-thread chip with a massive 128MB L3 cache, runs at 3.7 GHz and it's priced at $2,000 making it AMD's most expensive desktop CPU ever. If that's too rich, maybe the 3960X costs $1,400 for 24 cores and 48 threads.
