Top 5 CPUs for Gaming
     Wed, Jun 20 2018 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We're looking at CPU offerings once again but this time we're focusing solely on gaming, so we'll be picking each CPU based on almost nothing other than it's gaming performance. For the close fought battles we'll take the platform into account but for the most part it's all about those glorious frames per second.

A Look At How The AMD EPYC Linux Performance
     Wed, Jun 20 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This month marks one year since AMD returned to delivering high-performance server CPUs with the debut of their EPYC 7000 series processor line-up. It's been a triumphant period for AMD with the successes over the past year of their EPYC family. Over the past year, the Linux support has continued to improve with several EPYC/Zen CPU optimizations, ongoing Zen compiler tuning, CPU temperature monitoring support within the k10temp driver, and general improvements to the Linux kernel that have also helped out EPYC. In this article is a comparison of a "2017" Linux software stack as was common last year to the performance now possible if using the bleeding-edge software components. These Linux benchmarks were done with the EPYC 7351P, 7401P, and 7601 processors."

VROC as a CPU-attached RAID technology
     Sun, Jun 17 2018 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we are familiar with VROC as a CPU-attached RAID technology for NVMe devices on the Intel X299 and Xeon Scalable platforms, it has never been mentioned as an available option for the enthusiast grade Z-series chipsets. Could this be a preview of a feature that Intel has planned to come for the upcoming Z390 chipset?

AMD Ryzen 7 2700 And Ryzen 5 2600 Review: Great Value
     Sun, Jun 17 2018 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD launched its 2nd Generation Ryzen processors, we initially examined to the two top-end “X” variants -- the current flagship 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X and its 6-core cousin, the Ryzen 5 2600X. Of course, we love looking at the latest and greatest high-end hardware around here, but as is often the case, scaled-down versions of a particular product commonly offer significant value, without sacrificing much in terms of performance or features. With that in mind, we were eager to see what the lower-priced Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 could do. These processor are virtually identical to their X-branded counterparts after all, and because they’re unlocked, tweaking a few settings could offer some big performance gains...

Core i7-8086K

Posted by: STAFF
My Core i7-8086K arrives today, and I'm going to waste no time getting it out of its commemorative packaging and into a motherboard so we can see how it performs. It'd be a crime not to share that experience with the rest of the TR community, so I'm going to be benchmarking the chip live on YouTube starting somewhere between noon ET and 1 PM ET.

AMD StoreMI @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jun 08 2018 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So with the latest Ryzen launch, AMD slipped in another feature that fell under the radar with everything else going on. They call it StoreMI and at first glance, you might dismiss it but after playing around with it more I think all Ryzen owners should rethink that and at least check out my performance testing later in this article. Officially StoreMI is a free version of the Enmotus FuzeDrive and it may look like a caching tech like Intel’s Optane but it isn’t. It is a Tier setup like run on enterprise hardware allowing you to experience SSD speeds on your slower spinning storage with a hands-off approach that is especially good for non-enthusiasts who don’t think about which drive they install programs on.
