  1. The Chinese MacBook Killer - TEN HOUR BATTERY – Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro

    That's the cleanest notebook interior I've seen in a Windows machine. Looks like Xiaomi copied Apple's internal scheme as well, and it paid off. That battery is quite the presence, and the addition of that free M.2 slot is awesome (are both NVMe by the way or is one NVMe and the other one SATA or are both SATA?). EDIT on the last, seeing the notebook on Gearbest, Xiaomi says it themselves, the standard one is PCIe (NVMe), the other one is SATA based. Now, Xiaomi. Build one with a Raven Ridge APU. The 2700U would be nice.
  2. Please look at the last reply date before you post. You will see that the last reply date is August 1st, 2016 so anything you say or quote here is probably irrelevant at this point.
  3. So apparently, the Intel/Radeon marriage is a thing that's happening

    AMD's Raven Ridge is competing in the ULV-powered space, not the higher-power laptop chips. AMD doesn't have anything in that space yet, getting a GPU in there with a fast CPU will get them some well needed money.
  4. So apparently, the Intel/Radeon marriage is a thing that's happening

    sauce: https://newsroom.intel.com/editorials/new-intel-core-processor-combine-high-performance-cpu-discrete-graphics-sleek-thin-devices/ So this was the semi-custom design AMD talked about a while back. But it has happened. Here's Intel's video: So yeah. We now have an Intel CPU with an AMD RTG GPU in the 35-55W TDP range. Here's how they did that: That's a single HBM2 stack so we're likely limited to 4GB of video RAM. The details of the AMD GPU are unknown at this point, likely to be a Vega-based GPU, but things as SP count and clock speeds are not known yet.
  5. PCIe riser issue with Phanteks Evolv Shift?

    So, after running my system with no issues on the motherboard box for a while (Ryzen 5 1600@ stock, 16GB LPX3000@2133 ASRock AB350 Gaming ITX/ac, Vega 56 UV to 1050 mV@ 1530MHz) while waiting on the case I got my system finally installed in my new Phanteks Evolv Shift and I ran into problems the moment I turned it on. First it wouldn't boot at all. Then it would sometimes boot but the screen looked like a dia show with massive tearing left and right, even in the BIOS and finally it would sometimes take ages to even get to the post screen, even though the monitor was showing a green light (aka GPU is sending data of some sort). Took the system out of the case again, plugged my V56 directly in the motherboard and whaddayaknow, no issues at all. Put it back in the system, it works for a couple of boots, but as I'm typing I can definitely feel the system being sluggish, and booting up PUBG (which ran at a solid 100+ fps most of the time on stock CPU, 2133 RAM and UV GPU) it was barely braking 40 fps average, jumping up and down between 20 and 60 multiple times per second. Running Unigine Superposition (which also run fine before case installation commenced) and GPUZI can see the GPU clock jumping up and down between 1530 and 1300-ish and power usage jumps between ~200W (normal for UV Vega) and 130W, indicating some form of power delivery issue, and that's with 50% extra power limit. I checked the riser cable with a multimeter and every connection gives that highly annoying beep when you touch the contacts of the multimeter, so no cable breaks or shorts are present to my knowledge So I can currently think of two things here that could be wrong, both have to do with the cable Panteks ships with the Evolv Shift. Either it's something in the data transfer from the CPU to the GPU making the whole thing feel sluggish or the GPU isn't getting enough power over the PCIe slot due to bigger-than-expected power losses in the cable causing severe power throttles. Is there something else I forgot here that coule be it? Browsing the Phanteks forums I can see more people with other cases that have a Phanteks riser cable with issues, which is why I think this is a similar issue.
  6. OnePlus won't ditch the Jack port (for now)

    Don't ditch the jack. Then build in an amazong DAC with the best amp in the business to drive some quality high impedence headphones too to show who's boss.
  7. Morgan Stanley tries to slam AMD with ridiculous claims in new report

    150% guaranteed he has shares in the blue and green team.
  8. Ryzen beating intel with Very low latency ram?

    Yes, IF clockspeed is directly tied to the RAM speed aka RAM at 3000 MT/s runs at 1500 mHz memory, so the IF runs at 1500 mHz.
  9. Because they can, and because it's still a bazillion times faster than, lets say, a Red Rocket, which also costs $7000. So it's not even that "expensive".
  10. PUBG is now using Azure for multiplayer rather than AWS

    This means diddly jack if it's still running with a tickrate of less than 20 for most of the time.

  13. HP Envy x360 with AMD Ryzen & VEGA M graphics

    Single channel RAM

    No headphone jack, no thanks.
  15. RX Vega 64 Crossfire... not working AT ALL

    One word. Undervolt.
  16. Can't wait for my SSD to return from RMA so I can install the thing again.
  17. This is Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer

    It's not like you could update the older game with these new features rather than have it all in a new game with a new-game price tag.
  18. I Knew It. Intel Doesn't Want To Support Kaby Lake On Z370

  19. Intel is planning to release a 2 core i3 for x299, i3-7360X

    At this point they might as well re-release the 8084 on LGA2011 and nobody would be surprised.
  20. Basically this: And don't try to scroll over to get the handles, it'll just make you stuck on the image selector and scroll that in and out.
  21. So I DDU'd some AMD drivers because of an audio-over-HDMI issue, went to reinstall the drivers but it blackscreened halfway trough and never came back. Hit the reset switch, was put into the BIOS immediately. Saved changes and exit, booted into BIOS again. Saved changes and exit, but now it doesn't boot into anything. I've cleared the CMOS, went as far as disconnecting the CMOS battery (to truly reset it to stock) but no dice. If I remove the 960 Evo from the M.2 slot the PC boots into the BIOS just fine. If I plug my W10 boot USB into the back, it boots into that just fine. But as soon as I connect the M.2 960 Evo the PC posts only to the initial motherboard manufacturer logo and that's it. It doesn't respond to any key presses to get into the BIOS or boot menu or anything, it just sits there unresponsive. I don't have an external NVMe drive enclosure to put the 960 Evo into to wipe it via my laptop, so there's that. What are my options here? Have some way to reset it while it's in the PC? Or at least a way to get my motherboard past the logo so I can reformat the drive and start a fresh W10 install?? Motherboard is the ASRock AB350M Gaming-ITX/ac with a Ryzen 5 1600 @ stock, 16GB of Vengeance RAM running at 2133 for the time being and a reference Vega 56. EDIT ok so now I have another W10 Pro install onto an USB hard drive working. Thought I could maybe boot from that and have the NVMe SSD as a secondary storage options so I can have it at least boot and show up in Windows, but it's the same situation as before where the system won't go past the ASRock logo when the 960 Evo is installed.
  22. My 960 Evo is bricked, can't even get past the motherboard logo screen

    Well thanks for that. RMA it is. Backups are nice but I didn't expect a 3-week-old SSD to become corrupted after a driver install. Will do.
  23. My 960 Evo is bricked, can't even get past the motherboard logo screen

    Yeah I'd rather not if there's a way to at least get it to go past any BIOS post stuff and visible in Windows so I can at least get some data off of it before reformatting it for a fresh install.
