  1. CPU arrived earlier, it was a bit better than I thought it was when I wrote the thread, being a 10600k (I thought it was going to be the non-k). Ordered the Elite to house it, especially as Amazon UK just knocked another £10 off it compared to the last time I was looking.
  2. It comes down to how much you trust the CPU to be accurate at reporting itself. It'll probably be good enough for enthusiast uses.
  3. These wafer scale devices are designed to be really good at a type of workload. The supercomputer they compared with might be differently optimised. Traditionally the Top500 list ranks based on fp64 performance, something I doubt the wafer scale device is much good at because it was designed to be good at AI stuff.
  4. Wonder if there is any new info in the paper. I hear they're well on the way to 2nd gen version.
  5. CPU TDP is not and should not be used to indicate power draw, on Intel or AMD CPUs. CPUs will use what they use on a given workload, subject to limits set in CPU or system. If you get a power monitor for socket, that would also include losses (efficiency) of the power supply, and other components using power. Some PSUs can also do some monitoring and reporting.
  6. I was curious about the numbers since many on the forum parrot stuff about bad yields yet I've yet to see even a sliver of anything to confirm that. I'd prefer a credible source, but these must be some large mining organisations to design and build their own cards, or they outsource it to existing AIBs or similar. I was assuming retail value since that's about the only figure we have. Chances are any large scale buyer would not be paying retail rates in some way or other. Depends on the specific crypto. During the original boom, Ethereum was meant
  7. ECC registered requires specific support to work at all, and you're not going to find that on consumer level boards.
  8. If true, then disappointing from a gamer perspective. I do wonder, in what form do these sales take place. Presuming nvidia are selling the 30 series FE to miners, since if AIBs were involved we might hear more separately. I'd guess more likely 3070 and 3080 since the high VRAM and cost of the 3090 is unlikely to make that attractive, unless the miners get different much pricing. Will the miners have to pay over retail rates to get up the queue? Or is there essentially some discount for a bulk buy? It could go either way. You might say, why would nividia discount a card they know t
  9. Seems suspect the SSD would apparently write an order of magnitude more data to flash than received from host. I think this might be a misreading of a value somewhere. In terms of wear on the NAND I think the more interesting values are max erase count, and wear leveling count. The normalised values I think scale from 100 (new) to 0 (worn out), so you're not even half way through its wear life yet.
  10. That article is pretty badly written and it is unclear to me what the extent of the support is. Regardless, without official AMD support I'm not going to expect it to go anywhere fast.
  11. Lucky you. I've not seen any 3070 or 3080 on general sale from a reputable place (non-scalper) since launch. I have seen 3090's though.
  12. 4th gen consumer was Haswell. There are Haswell CPUs supporting DDR4, but you need to go X99 chipset, and beware the CPUs have a 5000 model number.
  13. This is what got my attention. There is software I'm interested in that already runs on both nvidia and AMD hardware but not Intel. If this gives a way for the nvidia code to run on Intel, it could open up use cases on iGPUs, not that I'm expecting much performance from them compared to dGPUs.
  14. Apparently this project translates CUDA to oneAPI Level 0, which I think only Intel are supporting for now at least. I'm not fully up to speed with oneAPI but my understanding is that it is a significantly Intel created open standard. Unless AMD also starts to support oneAPI, I don't think this software will be any use on AMD. What state and performance is that in? Got a name so I can look it up?
