    So if you have been following yesterdays' announcement, you will have noticed that AMD has talked about Zen2 and actually announced a new processor based on it. Last week Intel announced a 48-core pr...

    Let us hope that from now on these "hardware" exploits have and are taken care of by now.

    Still holding off on a new build over here.....

    Yeah, it's a datacenter CPU, and I've never paid attention to those since developments there were so remote from the desktop. That's why I had quad-cores for ten years - under Intel.

    Now with Ryzen, and even more so Threadripper, AMD is demonstrating a real-world connection. They are pushing the technology from top to bottom, and pushing Intel. That's an incredible achievement; but they can only keep it up if we support them in return.

    I'll buy AMD whenever I possibly can. I don't care if some game runs 5 fps slower at 720p. I also don't care if only six of the eight cores on my 1800X ever get much use - today. There's a lot of tomorrows and they're a lot brighter now.

    That's why this datacenter chip is actually exciting for a desktop guy. Thank you AMD.

    i love it.
    more compute, less electricity and waste heat.
    allows for a quantum level smaller data center with higher throughput and a "greener" footprint.

    curious to how Intel is going to sell datacenter cpu's in EU now with the climate change legislation cracking down across the board.

    datacenter operators can change out the whole hardware, use less power (fewer emissions), less heat, save money and earn very hard to get bureaucratic brownie points with EU administrators.

    :eek: forgot my pointo_O:rolleyes:;)

    ah yes...Infinity Fabric II

    i've been touting this big time...but the ramifications are huge. and when i say huge, i mean huge for gaming.

    a simple, small extrapolation with existing technology - Polaris (GCN4):
    each Bundled compute unit is chiplet with the I.F. II connection to the centralized render...you could easily fit 4-6 Polaris CU bundles (36 in each bundle)...for a minimum of 144 Polaris CU's vs 36 (at 7nm) on a single gpu...which would give it 331,776 stream processors.

    this isn't pie-in-the-sky guys.
    there are existing ES's (but with Vega architecture). as you can imagine, most of the work remaining is with the renderer IC

    By the looks of it, it looks like the cores are half the size of the old generation, so a 16 core AM4 CPU should be possible, if the extra chip is connected without memory controller, like the top Threadripper is now.

    I'm guessing it wasn't built in a day.

    It is just hardware porn though, isn't it? Could be me I suppose..... :p

    Really, really hoping AMD gives us x470/x399 owners an upgrade path to Zen 2

    That central HUB is Diabolically big. And those CCXes are so cute. I can't wait for transistor count numbers for each.

    Which frequency per core are we looking at for this new architecture?

    Not made public yet nor is actual power draw albeit AMD hinted at it. Its early silicone so that's pretty normal. Personally, im not to interested in frequencies until we see some lower core variants as those will be a lot less limited by thermals.
