Naples destroys Broadwell E5 2699A
AMD has launched its most exciting product in over a decade and chose an appropriate name - EPYC. We do know that you love Ryzen and Radeon too much, but EPYC is the single most important product generation from the house of AMD. It is, without a doubt, a big disruptive product on the cloud/server market.
Don’t hope to get one soon
Miners of the modern world are using the Radeon and Geforce cards to dig the ore called Ethereum.
Sounds about right
A few days ago, Videocards had an update on the engineering samples that got leaked.
A few sources have confirmed that Nvidia is working on a new driver that might improve mining performance. This seems to be the hot topic in the last few weeks.
Too early for this memory
Volta is out for artificial intelligence, machine learning applications and it will be shipping in DGX 1 systems, mainly for deep learning and AI. The next Geforce will be a completely separate chip.
Down to three months
It looks like the GPU industry as we know is in the middle of a metamorphosis. Multiple sources from the channel, all the way to the AIB partners and chip manufacturers, have confirmed that GPUs used for mining will get shorter warranties.
Ethereum to blame
Last week at Computex quite a few of our contacts mentioned that RX 580, 570 and older 480 and 470 cards are extremely hard to find. It turns out, that our contacts confirmed that the Ethereum crypto currency network is to blame.
To be offered to other notebook manufacturers
Fudzilla has already mentioned the existence of an Intel based CPU with Radeon graphics. Our sources are very confident that Apple is the company behind this order.
Will take some time
Fudzilla has already mentioned Jim Keller, the hardware engineer that was one of the key people for finishing what was considered to be the overambitious AMD Zen CPU project. Keller now works for Tesla, and our well-informed friends confirmed that he is building a self-driving platform for the company.
Four to five times better than some Intel
Qualcomm talked a bit here at the Computex show about Snapdragon 835 running Windows, and we had a chance to see a demo and chat with Qualcomm’s Don McGuire VP of product marketing and Pete Bernard, a Principal Group Program Manager partner and customer engagement R&D chap at Microsoft.
