Intel Core i9-9900KS 5GHz (8C16T) CPU Review
     Wed, Oct 30 2019 | 2:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a clear effort to stamp its clock frequency and gaming performance authority over AMD, Intel has released a ‘Special Edition’ version of the Core i9-9900K. Clocked at 5GHz out of the box on all eight cores, only the best of the Core i9-9900K silicon can become the Core i9-9900KS. As will be a surprise to nobody, the TDP is increased to deal with the 5GHz clock speed. Perhaps more surprisingly, however, is that Intel is charging a reasonable $14-25 price premium for the i9-9900KS versus the i9-9900K. That seems to be a pretty reasonable mark-up for a 300MHz clock speed boost and the allure of a ‘limited edition’ piece of hardware.

Intel Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake
     Mon, Oct 28 2019 | 5:51P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Following this week's Intel Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake Linux benchmarks there was some questions and speculations about the per-clock performance of this long-awaited Intel microarchitecture update. Here is some additional data shedding light on the clock frequencies under load and ultimately how the per-clock performance compares to the common Intel previous-generation mobile CPUs."

Mitigation Impact Difference On AMD Ryzen 9 3900X vs. Intel Core i9 9900K
     Sun, Oct 20 2019 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last week I shared benchmark results of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X vs. Intel Core i9 9900K in 400+ benchmarks in the largest comparison ever for these two competing ~$500 USD processors. If that wasn't enough, I repeated the hundreds of CPU/system benchmarks again but without any of the recent CPU security mitigations in place to see how the situation would have played out pre-2018."

Intel Core i7-10710U Benchmarked: 14nm+++ Comet Lake
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time to get back into some CPU benchmarking, and we're not looking at any old CPU, but the first of Intel's 10th-generation processors. Seeing Intel reach the limits of their 14nm process, we genuinely weren't expecting the Core i7-10710U to be this good.

AMD EPYC vs. Intel Xeon Cascadelake With Facebook's RocksDB
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Following the benchmarks earlier this month looking at PostgreSQL 12.0 on AMD EPYC Rome versus Intel Xeon Cascade Lake there was interest from Phoronix readers in wondering how well Rome is doing for other modern enterprise database workloads. One of those workloads that was recently added to the Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org is Facebook's RocksDB, the company's embedded database that is forked from Google LevelDB. With RocksDB being designed to exploit many CPU cores and modern SSD storage, here are some benchmarks looking at how the Xeon Platinum 8280 stacks up against various new AMD EPYC 7002 series processors."

The Killer AMD Threadripper Build You'll Love To Hate
     Thu, Oct 10 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently had the chance to spend some time with the folks at Maingear HQ and built a beautiful, water-cooled AMD Rzyen 3000-based rig. That system was destined for Dave’s lab and has become his daily workhorse – in fact, that rig produced the video you’ll see below. Not long after we took that trip to Maingear though, my personal rig started acting up. I have been rocking an Ivy Bridge-based system for about 7 years now that has made it through multiple OS upgrades and served me quite well. I had been planning to build a new rig for many months, but my current rig had been so reliable, and my personal and professional workloads so intense, I just couldn’t pull the trigger. Well, my old rig decided to start randomly crashing and making some funky sounds (I think some caps need replacing on the mobo), and I’ve got a severe case of Maingear-envy, so the time for a new system was now...

AMD Ryzen 5 3400G APU Review
     Tue, Oct 08 2019 | 7:30P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Processors with built-in graphics have been something in the past that most desktop PC users really did not take seriously. When it came to graphics performance you really could not play much and the overall experience was not that good at all. AMD has been at the forefront of these type of products with their line of APUs (Accelerated Processing Unit). Today we will be taking a look at their Ryzen 5 3400G APU, which is a 4-core, 8-thread part that features Radeon RX Vega 11 built-in graphics. The processor is clocked at 3.7 GHz and has a max boost clock of 4.2 GHz, while the Vega 11 graphics are clocked at 1400 MHz. This is the first time we’ve had a chance to take a look at an APU from AMD so we cannot speak on their previous APUs, but will the Ryzen 5 3400G be able to change our mind about processors with built-in graphics? Read on to find out!"

PC vendors brace for Intel CPU shortages again
     Tue, Oct 08 2019 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC vendors are bracing for a repeat of Intel's CPU shortages that had plagued the market for several quarters since mid 2018. Supply might have been improving earlier in the third quarter, but the latest news coming from the supply chain is that Intel 14nm CPU manufacturing capacity is falling short of demand again. But PC vendors may have alternative CPU supplies from China. At least one China-based CPU developer is ready to volume-ship its ARM processors for the doemstic desktop market.

The Xeon vs. EPYC Performance With Intel's oneAPI Embree
     Sun, Oct 06 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With Intel seemingly ramping up work on their open-source OSPray portable ray-tracing engine now that they have pulled it under their oneAPI umbrella as part of a forthcoming rendering tool-kit, I figured it would be the latest interesting candidate for benchmarking of AMD EPYC 7742 vs. Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 performance. In addition, the Embree ray-tracing kernels are also being benchmarked as part of this performance comparison."

AMD Ryzen processor delay blamed on unsatisfactory clock speeds
     Wed, Oct 02 2019 | 8:17P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week's news about TSMC extending 7nm chip production lead time because of strong demand provoked knee-jerk speculation that it was the cause of AMD delaying the launch of its Ryzen 9 3950X. It has turned out that unsatisfactory clock speed - rather than foundry support - has prompted AMD to adjust the design of 16-core processor, according to sources from the motherboard suppy chain. TSMC may be indisputably the leader in the foundry sector, but China-based peers are keen to expand 12-inch fab capacity to better serve the domestic market. And China-based chip vendors are also eyeing the 5G mobile SoC market. The entry-level to mid-tier 5G mobile SoC market segment will see particularly intense competition.

"Given the recent AMD "ABBA" Ryzen 3000 boost fix, the upcoming release of Ubuntu 19.10 powered by Linux 5.3, here is a fresh round of AMD Ryzen 9 3900X vs. Intel Core i9 9900K benchmarks in a side-by-side matchup . It's just not any comparison but our largest i9-9900K vs. 3900X comparison ever: 112 gaming benchmarks and 321 system/CPU benchmarks carried out for our most extensive look yet at how these ~$500 CPUs are competing in this fierce race."
