So AMD already said they're not going to add a GPU (Vega nor Navi) into Matisse's chiplet/CPU package, but haven't denied anything else. So, there's still hope for some of my large cache wishful thinking!

Cheers! :p

Hey guy's,

In Adored's latest vid he say's "infinity fabric speeds will be de-coupled from the memory clock" What are the implications for this... Does this mean it can be ran faster than the memory ?

Ye but only in "Matisse" they have claimed this.
This would not include a Raven Ridge / Pinnacle Ridge successor... technically speaking that is.

It means they can run infinity fabric as fast as they can, and memory speed and latency will not have much affect on performance, similar to Intel.

That's great news. Happy Day's.

Yeah, so your memory speed will have a lesser impact on overall performance moving forward. Which means running maxed out XMP profiles on Ryzen will pay less dividends for people trying to save a few bucks here and there. The return on investment should likely only be a few percentage points instead of double digit gains in performance across the board.

If the Infinity fabric can use the stacked memory before ram i can see that improving performance too. Overall would this act like a massive L4 cache?
Yup. Looks like the "closer to home" memory I was thinking about they could use was in the plans. I wonder how they'll integrate it though... I haven't read more details or found more either.

Cheers!
