An Initial Look At Spectre V4 "Speculative Store Bypass" With AMD
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:33P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Yesterday the latest Spectre vulnerability was disclosed as Spectre Variant 4 also known as "Speculative Store Bypass" as well as the less talked about Spectre Variant 3A "Rogue System Register Read". Here are my initial tests of a patched Linux kernel on AMD hardware for Spectre V4."

AMD Ryzen 7 2700 8-Core 65W Processor
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:24P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we published reviews on the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X processors and found AMD's second-generation Zen models to be off to a great start. Both the models we looked at last month support AMD's XFR 2 technology though and we weren't able to look at the non-XFR (eXtended Frequency Range) models of the same processors. Today, we'll be taking a look at the AMD Ryzen 7 2700 8-core, 16-thread processor that is basically the same thing as the Ryzen 2700X albeit with XFR technology disabled and lower clock speeds. Read on to see how the Ryzen 7 2700 performs when we put it to the test!

Review: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 (65W)
     Wed, May 23 2018 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is time to have a look at the non-X model Ryzen 7 2700. This eight-core processor is 30 bucks cheaper compared to the 2700X model. The essence, heck even the hardware is the same, however, the 2700 is clocked substantially lower and the X models are better binned and has better default clock frequencies. If you are willing to tweak a bit yourself, you can save cash and retrieve the very same performance. The Ryzen 7 2700 has eight-cores and sixteen threads priced pretty at just 299 USD.

Posted by: STAFF
The Ryzen 7 2700 is the cheaper, sub-$300 sibling of the flagship 2700X, and has nothing disabled on-die. It even comes with an unlocked multiplier, and nearly half the TDP rating, which makes it the most energy-efficient processor we ever tested in multi-threaded workloads.

DDR4 Memory Scaling Performance with Ryzen 7 2700X
     Mon, May 21 2018 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD announced the new Ryzen 2000 Series processors along with the new X470 platform on April 19th, 2018 many might have missed that G.Skill released new Trident Z RGB and Sniper X DDR4 memory kits custom tailored for this platform. We test a kit with the same timings at 2400, 2666, 3000, 3200, 3466, 3600 and 3733MHz to see of the performance scales on a Ryzen 7 2700X CPU.

Intel Core i5-8500 3.0 GHz
     Fri, May 18 2018 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's $200 Core i5-8500 is part of the second wave of Coffee Lake CPUs, released earlier this year. The processor comes with six cores and six threads, and will boost up to 4.1 GHz. Our testing shows that even at higher thread counts it won't ever go below 3.9 GHz, which will make life difficult for the Ryzen 5 2600 - its main competitor.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz
     Thu, May 17 2018 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ryzen 5 2600 is AMD's most affordable 12 nm processor you can buy, and fills the shoes of the popular Ryzen 5 1600. Thanks to its twelve threads it will breeze through multi-threaded workloads, and its gaming performance has been improved a lot too, beating last generation's Ryzen 7 1800X flagship.

UWaterloo - Moore’s Law extended with the use of light
     Mon, May 14 2018 | 2:09P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
University of Waterloo chemists have found a much faster and more efficient way to store and process information by expanding the limitations of how the flow of electricity can be used and managed.

In a recently released study, the chemists discovered that light can induce magnetization in certain semiconductors – the standard class of materials at the heart of all computing devices today. “These results could allow for a fundamentally new way to process, transfer, and store information by electronic devices, that is much faster and more efficient than conventional electronics.”

For decades, computer chips have been shrinking thanks to a steady stream of technological improvements in processing density. Experts have, however, been warning that we’ll soon reach the end of the trend known as Moore’s Law, in which the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits double every year.

“Simply put, there’s a physical limit to the performance of conventional semiconductors as well as how dense you can build a chip,” said Pavle Radovanovic, a professor of chemistry and a member of the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology. “In order to continue improving chip performance, you would either need to change the material transistors are made of - from silicon, say to carbon nanotubes or graphene - or change how our current materials store and process information.”

Radovanovic’s finding is made possible by magnetism and a field called spintronics, which proposes to store binary information within an electron’s spin direction, in addition to its charge and plasmonics, which studies collective oscillations of elements in a material.

“We’ve basically magnetized individual semiconducting nanocrystals (tiny particles nearly 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair) with light at room temperature,” said Radovanovic. “It’s the first time someone’s been able to use collective motion of electrons, known as plasmon, to induce a stable magnetization within such a non-magnetic semiconductor material.

In manipulating plasmon in doped indium oxide nanocrystals Radovanovic’s findings proves that the magnetic and semiconducting properties can indeed be coupled, all without needing ultra-low temperatures (cryogens) to operate a device.

He anticipates the findings could initially lead to highly sensitive magneto-optical sensors for thermal imaging and chemical sensing. In the future, he hopes to extend this approach to quantum sensing, data storage, and quantum information processing.

The project was funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Canada First Excellence Research Fund in Transformative Quantum Technologies.

The findings of the research appeared recently in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Review

Posted by: STAFF
The launch of AMDs Ryzen 1st Gen chips went down a storm with the PC market last year, but outright clock speeds were somewhat lacking when compared to the blue corner. That’s where the Ryzen 5 2600X hopes to make up some ground, with a boost clock of 4.2GHz and base clocks of 3.6GHz.
