  1. I guess you mean like really fast ram? The CPU will just run as fast as it could. Basically imagine you had the divine RAM that god himself made for you, that just writes the data instantly to the cache of the CPU as soon as it wants to have it. Then the data still has to be processed. So the CPU would just run as fast as it possibly could, but it still will be very slow. What happens if you put the best tires on a cheap car? it won't suddenly go very fast or accellerate much faster.
  2. The only things, that I could come up with, is if you are either programing on that hardware specifically, then it might work, but that's a bit far fetched. The other thing would be to set up VMs. You could split your CPU (if it has enough cores) and then have a dedicated GPU for two VMs. Basically turning your computer into two gaming PCs. But this only works if your CPU is powerful enough for this and if you'd need gaming PCs at the same time.
  3. I have not used robocopy that much, but wouldn't the /XX command do that?
  4. I think the confusion is about the generation the processors are from. AMD releases their newest processor generation as a CPU only. Like the Ryzen 5 3600 for example. Around the same time, they usually also announce their APU's (so processor with integrated graphics). But those will still use the old architecture! So a ryzen 5 3400G is still a zen+ CPU (like the 2000 series) instead of zen2 (like the 3000 series). It is a bit confusing, but you'll have to get used to it I guess. I hope you didn't buy the wrong CPU because of this.
  5. granted, but from now on, you body can only receive red blood cells from other humans (so you have become a vampire) I wish I was actually able to fully concentrate on and enjoy two things at once
  6. I also just thought that the engine is huge, but this is just an 200mm^2 chip, so I guess that's fine. Thank you for finding and posting it! Definitely. My main point about this was also just, that intel was proud of being able to include this functionality into thier server chips. They will in no way want to put anything powerful (i.e. big) onto them. So they would need the XE to be able to function at something like 1/8th of a tile. Which only works, if the architecture allows to be cut down like that. Well or they just spend a little bit adapting it, they are intel after all, they h
  7. That is all completly right. I just tried to make a joke (too lighten the mood a bit ._.), since you emphisized that there was actually zero change at all : D I guess I failed :c Also for laptops your frequencies might be correct, but i was looking at the desktop numbers (which aren't really important right now, but I haven't really looked into the intel 10th gen mobile CPUs, since the ryzen ones are just a way better choice). The desktop cpus can stay at 5.1 for a pretty long time and won't fall of that far (source: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3587-intel-core-i
  8. Not actually true ._. they did fix some of their security bugs (not that there aren't new ones incomming) as well as tweak their architecture within its limits. There is a reason, that current gen CPUs can hit 5.1GHz wile the first skylake CPUs could only go up to 4.2GHz. That is like a 20% increase in performance! Sadly their power consumtion also increased, which is the real problem. Also I think they did tweak cache layout and their scheduler as well.
  9. I don't belive you have used one of the new XPS machines. They are made out of actual carbon fibre, the rest of the chasis is made out of aluminum and the trackpad is made out of glass. So there is absolutely nothing there to flex. The XPS line has its problems, but flexing is really not one of them! I think you are generalizing way too much. It is not a given, that the razer products are developing hardware issues within 18 months. Their battery life is worse, since they have better hardware, that consumes more power. Also no one is even recommending the razer notebook.
  10. You are probably somewhat confused about all the discussion. Basically choosing the correct laptop is really hard and there is usually no right answer. Some people really don't like paying for looks, while other people place quite a bit of worth on it. Some people like one operating system more than another and are also willing to pay for that. You are usually best advised to stay away from the really cheap gaming laptops, as you will likely get a bad keyboard/screen/trackpad etc. (although this has gotten better in recent years). But those things aside, every choice is a compromise.
  11. Okai I worded that very wrong. They definitely do not take up a lot of space on the silicon in comparison to doing it with GP-units. But they do still take up space and are only useful for one task. I tried to find information on how much space exactly the FF-block on a current intel iGPU takes up, but sadly didn't find anything and I don't have that much time right now to look further. So what I though was correct, might have been wrong. But having fixed function hardware basically acts like 'negative' performance for all other tasks, that don't require the hardware (of course in the rig
  12. I know, but fixed function hardware takes up a lot of spcae on the silicon. If you follow the tweets from Raja Kodury: He sais something about holding peta-ops in his hand. That is not possible without something like the tensor cores from nvidia. And this is probably INT8 performance rather than FP32/64 or even TFP32/16. It was a joke, but the writer of the paper actually say, that porting games from one system to another would be a future usecase for this. I highly doubt, that what they have done is scalable enough for this, but who knows.
  13. I have only ever undervolted the GPU in my desktop PC. That worked very well actually, but you should not expect to get a lot out of it, if you are not also lowering clock speeds. Here is a guide, that I found. I can't testify for it, but it should be a good starting point. https://genexisx.blogspot.com/2019/09/laptop-undervolting-guide-intelnvidia.html Just a heads up, I think if you are using intel XTU, some of the settings are already applied while booting, so if your system becomes so unstable, that it is unable to boot, you'll have to reset your CMOS. Throttlesto
  14. Have you looked at the clockspeeds of the components. Your GPU is probably hitting its termal limit and throttling. It would be good to know, by how much. Same for you CPU. I would probably go for a repaste first, as it is fairly little work. Sometimes the thermal interface between the CPU/GPU and the cooler can just go bad after some time... I would advise against going liquid metal, as it can destroy your laptop. Just get some good, non conductive thermal compound.
