    My favorite was the Celeron 533A that I had. It was a new Coppermine based model. It overclocked from 533 MHz to about 920 MHz, and this was at a time before we had any commercially available...

    If you think those days were fun, you'd have loved the late 90s. Sandy Bridge overclocking is pretty boring in comparison.

    Ok, I think I understand the confusion now. Take note that the slide is showing multiple comparisons. The numbers on the left aren't referring to the Cinebench results on the right. The Cinebench...

    Maybe you misread some model numbers? I'm not finding what you are referring to.

    For once I think I'm completely okay with it so long as Chinese companies start vomiting cheap DRAM all over the world market.

    I doubt he made that comment with serious intent. 12 nm Zeppelin dies can do 6 GHz or better under cryogenic conditions, but none of that really matters for us on a daily basis.

    That isn't the panacea that you might think it is. Instructions are often sequence dependent. The ones that aren't already do what you're talking about. The combination of superscalar design and...

    Parallel execution is the main way we're going to see a continuation of better-than-linear computational capacity growth. You can try to resist it if you want to, but you'd just be trying to resist...
  11. If the title is going to make a point of saying...

    If the title is going to make a point of saying 5.0 GHz is a first, it needs to be qualified. "First 5.0 GHz processor from Intel" is accurate. If talking about x86 at large, AMD released a 4.7 GHz...

    Small correction in the quoted material: The effect the author described is image persistence, not burn-in.

    Are you seeing a bigger impact on performance with memory frequency or timings? I'm wondering if 3200 at CL14 is a better bet than say 3600 at CL16. G.Skill doesn't advertise any AMD friendly kits...

    Nothing yet. I'm trying to get a feel for which speed grade I should look into buying for the 2700X system I'm building. I want to purchase memory that will allow me to get to the edge of what the...

    How high can you go with 2 sticks without overvolting? 3200?
  16. I can't say I understand your point. It would...

    I can't say I understand your point. It would seem to essentially boil down to "Yeah, but maybe in the future it won't be as useful as it is today if everything changes in a way that isn't favorable...

    Anyone who couldn't sell a Vega graphics card today with this mining nonsense going on couldn't sell a glass of water to a man dying of thirst in the desert.
  18. I still don't get why any of this is considered...

    I still don't get why any of this is considered to be a new and significant discovery. It's not shocking that a computer executes whatever is in its ROM nor is malware persistence via firmware new. ...

    Entry level SSDs are basically free at this point. Typical end users are going to benefit a lot more from a $50 250/256 GB SSD than from a 2 TB magnetic disk. It's disappointing that computers are...

    It's worth noting that within the United States a manufacturer has no legal authority to compel retailers to follow a particular price structure. As such, "we will continue to allow" is sort of...

    It's worth pointing out that that is what intrinsic means. Your shares of stocks are just a few bytes in a database. They have no intrinsic value. That isn't to say they have no extrinsic value. ...

    Cost, time, and production scale issues limit the adoption of many of the things we hear about. If it increases drain current by 50% but costs ten times as much to produce a wafer, you're probably...

    Not exactly. We already know that Epyc, Threadripper, and Ryzen are built from the same die. AMD has talked about that across various avenues. The die is called Zeppelin and then each of those...

    It's hard to imagine anyone having a good time in PUBG with this thing. That game needs something like a GTX 1070 or Vega 56 to be smooth enough for good aiming when the game is set to minimum...
