HBM can have equal or even lower latencies than DDR though. It all depends on how you configure it.
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.goldstone77 :jaymc :Hey guy's,
How are yis all doing... hope all is well.
AMD miss on Rev an still up 10% after hours...
Shares of AMD shot up by as much as 10 percent in after-hours trading this afternoon after 4Q earnings were announced.wccftech.com
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 ?
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.
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.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?
Depends if the performance is there. Can't imagine the yields on such a part would be any good though.Hard to confirm anything like that, since until AMD doesn't announce anything officially it's still something "to be confirmed" anyway.
Now, that is interesting information on its own. I don't like the idea of a $900 part (not even a 16C/32T at 5.2Ghz) as it sounds too out of touch, but looks like AMD may take Intel by surprise, again.
Uhm... Considering the die area of Ryzen is a fraction of whatever nVidia is cooking in TSMC's furnaces, I'd be willing to say yields won't be a massive problem for AMD and their CPUs.Depends if the performance is there. Can't imagine the yields on such a part would be any good though.
