AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X And 1920X Review
     Thu, Aug 10 2017 | 1:22P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD’s unrelenting attack on the desktop CPU market continues today, with the official launch of the company's beastly Ryzen Threadripper processors. If, by some cruel joke, you are unfamiliar with Threadripper, it is AMD’s premium, high-end, many-core desktop processor, that leverages the same Zen microarchitecture that debuted with the Ryzen 7 series a few months back. The flagship chip in the initial AMD Ryzen Threadripper line-up packs 16 physical processor cores and supports 32 threads through the use of SMT (Simultaneous Multithreading).

Today we’ll be looking at the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16-core and AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X 12-core processors. These processors are the the tip of the spear for AMD and are aimed at the high-end desktop market. This completes the AMD Ryzen processor lineup for the desktop and more importantly marks AMD’s move back into the high-end desktop market after having to abandon it years ago...

Posted by: STAFF
In direct continuation of yesterday's article about easily causing segmentation faults on AMD Zen CPUs, I have carried out another battery of tests for 24 hours and have more information to report today on the ability to trivially cause segmentation faults and in some cases system lock-ups with Ryzen CPUs."

Exclusive: Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Performance
     Tue, Aug 08 2017 | 3:34P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Ryzen helped propel AMD back to essentially performance parity with Intel Core series processors, Ryzen Threadripper offers the hope of surpassing even Intel's latest Core i9 Skylake-X family, with more core resources and PCIe connectivity at its disposal. As it turns out, however, our first hands-on experience with AMD Ryzen Threadripper wasn't afforded to us by the usual manufacturer press kit, but rather an OEM desktop system from Dell's Alienware Gaming PC division. And today we're able to give you an early preview look at the performance of AMD's 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X processor, courtesy of the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition beastly gaming desktop PC...

Simulating AMD Ryzen 3 1200, 1300 Performance

Posted by: STAFF
Today we're taking a glimpse into the future to see how Ryzen 3 will perform when it's released next week. We did the same with Ryzen 5 and those results turned out to be 100% accurate. This is because Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 are the same physical chips as Ryzen 7, just with a certain degree of resources disabled.

Core i7-7800X vs. 7700K, 6 or 4 Cores for Gaming?
     Mon, Jul 31 2017 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although we consider the Ryzen 5 1600 to be the sweet spot for building a new high-end gaming rig, many of you interested in going Intel want to know whether it makes more sense to buy the Core i7-7700K or the new 7800X? There's just a ~$70 difference between the two, but the older chip is higher clocked, and the newer CPU gets you two extra cores and access to Intel's latest desktop platform.

Intel Core i9 7900X & Core i7 7740X
     Thu, Jul 27 2017 | 4:41P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”That being said, I only had a couple other performance problems on the Core i9 7900X. In AIDA64, the FPU Mandel test would not bump up all the cores into action while running at stock speeds. The only way to get a true result in the test was to manually bump the CPU cores up to the Turbo Boost speed in the BIOS. In one of the game tests, the Skylake X i9 7900X delivered a lower level of FPS when compared to the Broadwell-E and Haswell-E processors. Throw in the other few odd results and we can chalk it up to an immature processor. Overall, the Core i9 7900X delivers significant performance margins over just about anything on the market right now. Now, when I looked at the overall performance of the Kaby Lake X Core i7 7740X, I got just what I expected, with some performance outliers that did not resolve out with even more benchmark cycles. I saw some results that should have seen it outperform the socket 1151 Core i7 7700K during both the stock and overclocked testing, but it still fell a little bit short. Overall, with the larger socket and dual channel DDR4 2666MHz support, it can get the job done”

The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X, which is priced at $129, comes with a 3.4 GHz base clock and 3.7 GHz Boost. It offers four real cores that manage to beat the dual-core Intel Core i3-7300 with HyperThreading, which is significantly more expensive at the same time.

AMD Ryzen 3 1200 3.1 GHz
     Thu, Jul 27 2017 | 4:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Ryzen 3 1200 is aggressively priced at $110, which makes it the most affordable Ryzen available. With clock frequencies ranging from 3.1 GHz Base to 3.4 GHz Boost, it is clocked not much different than the Ryzen 5 1400, which also has four physical cores, but includes the SMT technology on top.

AMD Ryzen 3 1300X And 1200 Processor Review: More Affordable Zen
     Thu, Jul 27 2017 | 4:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is officially launching its latest series of Ryzen processors today, the affordably priced Ryzen 3. As the branding suggests, Ryzen 3 will complement the previously launched Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 series of desktop processors, but will target lower-cost, entry-level price points. Ryzen 3 isn’t your typical, entry-level processor, however. Ryzen 3 actually features the same die as its higher-end siblings, but has fewer active cores and symmetrical multi-threading (SMT) has been disabled. Ryzen 3 processors feature quad-core configurations, however, they leverage the same socket and packaging, have the same features, and are fully unlocked for easy overclocking...

AMD Ryzen 3 Series Review
     Thu, Jul 27 2017 | 4:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on their latest Zen architecture, AMD is proposing a low-end to mainstream segment with their Ryzen 3 SKUs; we are not discussing about a 2-core part but a real 4-core processor (SMT disabled) with dual CCXes, where each CCX module sports two active units. The processors do feature an 8MB L3 cache and are aimed to compete against the Pentium G4560, the Core i3-7100 but also the Core i3-7300 from Intel. Given the technical specifications and stock clocks, these CPUs are recommended to be paired with mainstream video cards in order to make smooth 1080P gaming possible."
