    Hey, everyone. We are working on some follow-up Switch hardware-level analysis (should be fun!), a few case reviews, and some 1080 Ti follow-ups this week. Stay tuned. The 1700X review is written and will go live on the site. We might make that an article only, due to the video schedule.

    The last big corp to do it was MS with their Win8/10 bs...
    Now we are doing it with mobos/cpus?
    I'm just gonna sit on the sidelines for a few years, this whole thing is QA NULL....

      I think every launch is like this. X99 Intel was not smooth from everyone else says, AM3+ had issues with the 8 core CPUs catching cheaper motherboards on fire (actually that's not a firmware thing, so it can still happen with boards with bad VRMs). At least they are improving things (unlike Windows which gets progressively worse since 7 and they force updates which often brick devices). This is more like an optional game patch, not a break everything mod like the garbage Windows seems to force push out.
      I would wait it out if you haven't bought a chip yet and that's something that bothers you. I'm not going to be one of those insane people that says "what are you waiting for, just upgrade to windows 10, its so much better". The only thing "better" about it is DX 12 for AMD GPUs. That's not worth loosing 90% of your hair in a year or two. I'm going to be an engineer, I'll be bald before I'm 40 anyways. (Ok, I may be exaggerating slightly, but I usually have to wipe or blow off my keyboard from all the hair I've pulled off because windows found another way to screw up for the day).

    can you confirm that if you overclock Ryzen to 4.2 or 4.5 it will survive or something else can happen 🤔 a RUclip video showed his CPU is not working after he overclocked it to 4.5 GHz

    • Gamers Nexus
      Gamers Nexus  2 года назад +3

      Depends more on the voltage than the frequency. 4.5 is pretty ambitious.

    Honestly I think the RX500 series it's not the best move for AMD, specially when Vega is going to be called RX Vega and not 5xx. They should be a 485/475... so that people doesn't think they are rebranding

    • Roikhan Ulya Hamidan

      As long as it not more expensive usually most people are okay with rebranding.

      +CryBeat Exactly, and when they did the rebrands people wasn't happy. I see this more as an incremental upgrade than a new generation

    • Yulus Leonard
      Yulus Leonard 2 года назад

      They did this every year. Rebranding+minor update? The next major update will be RXI or they return to R11. OFC the next year Ryzen will be Ryzen Rx 2xxx

      Sometimes it's a good idea to check the Taiwan Asus websites, etc, they can have versions out before the US website gets it. I did this with my LG BluRay Drive, the Firmware from Asia allowed me to also read HD DVD discs along with BluRay but LG website in the USA was not offering that version of Firmware as a Download.

    • Jolinator

      That is typical asus, they have no regards for existing customers best examples are the x79 rampage black which was left with a host of issues yet was their top of the line board, they then did the same thing with the r5e and then released the rampage anniversary .

    what if it's just a rx 450. but also it could be an apu gpu being featured. but thares still the unaddressed apu king rumors featuring 4 ryzen cores with L3 cache and 12 Polaris units putting the new apu king just under the rx460 and more than dubble the performance of a10-7890.

      I didn't do that to bait, especially on a small channel like this. I commented to, uhh, I don't know, show other people to not set XMP profiles on a Ryzen board. Shut the fuck up Nopiw.

    • SergeantPope - Komada Computer Repair
      SergeantPope - Komada Computer Repair 2 года назад

      I reset the BIOS both ways (battery and jumper) and neither worked. The BIOS was done for. So no, that didn't fix the problem buddy.

    • Eduard Calota

      FlowerBedMonster btw intel do same thing for the cpu-s with very high count of cores, the diference of latency come from the memory controller

    • Eduard Calota
      Eduard Calota 2 года назад

      FlowerBedMonster technically the cores are in the same house, but what you dont understand is cashe is fastest memory we have atm, but is vey limited in amount due to costs, each compute unit don't communicate between each other by ram because is very slow compared to cache and inefective

    • col. hapablap
      col. hapablap 2 года назад +5

      Eduard Calota unlike prior CPUs, R7 performance is heavily dependent on memory speed.

    • FlowerBedMonster
      FlowerBedMonster 2 года назад +1

      This isn't a normal CPU. think of it as SLI or Crossfire where each processing unit must speak with each other but because they are not under the same housing there must be some kind of lag. As for the cache, there isn't enough L2 and L3 is still too small and just barely fast enough. Not only that the cache is shared between the 2 making going from one CCX to another frequently even worse or in simple terms, cache isn't advanced enough and ram is still growing in terms of speed which why we need it.

    • Eduard Calota
      Eduard Calota 2 года назад

      FlowerBedMonster the latency between cores are not afected by ram, but cash speed
