>> No.59052439

great googling there. you find those two words in conjunction with each other and stuff.

there's still no such thing as a CPU driver. the CPU exposes an instruction set (in this case x86). the kernel's job is to what machine code the CPU executes, and when. instruction set support is at the assembler/compiler level. any optimization must also be done there, or in the software itself.

what AMD can release is microcode patches and chipset drivers. by not supporting win7, they will simply not supply packages by which those microcode or chipset driver patches can be deployed via win7. Ryzen should be stable on win7 and run at peak performance despite this. only, certain chipset or uarch features might not work.

for example, win7 can run on Skylake chips but their ultra-low-power modes are only available on 10.

lastly, regardless of this, you're still a fucking moron for suggesting this somehow translates to vidya performance. fuck off to /v/ please.

Imagine a world where paying Intel extortion fees and being told "4 cores is plenty" ceased to exist?

Imagine a future of computing that finally gives you freedom to choose what's important for your computing needs, versus being told only one fits in your price range.

No more annual socket updates for 5% IPC gains.

No more 1000 dollar desktop performance CPUs and cheap, power efficient, home servers and NAS boxes.

Intels stranglehold on the CPU market is largely over.

75% single core IPC performance. With superefficient similtaneous multi-threading, for 150-200 USD less than an Intel counterpart means AMD pulled off a miracle.

> I don't know why.
Some people on here aren't teenagers and remember when AMD were fucking gods.
Knowing the old AMD, it's easy to understand how this isn't bullshit like Bulldozer.

The two old gods, Jim Keller and Raja are back at AMD. And the new god, Su, has joined them.
They're going to wreck Intel's shit.
Then they're going to wreck Nvidia's shit.
Then they're going to wreck all the shit in the mobile space.

No one is safe, except the consumer. AMD was always an extremely oddly consumer friendly company even when they were massive.

Literally the only reason Intel is still alive today is because illegal anti-competitive anti-trust business tactics. Intel would only sell to OEMs at reasonable prices and were giving huge kickbacks to buyers as long as they didn't buy AMD at all (despite AMD chips being better performance for cheaper and that they didn't light your house on fire) and they had a lot of marketing might.

AMD was the first to bring in DDR2 RAM while Intel was trying to push some overpriced piece of shit weird named RAM.
AMD created most of this SIMD vector shit that is standard to use in games today. "3DNow" or whatever basically became SSE. It's a good deal of why the 1.33Ghz Thunderbird ran 30% better in many games than the 1.5Ghz Pentium 4.
AMD created x86-64. Before that there was a 4GB memory limit. And Intel REALLY REALLY didn't want 64bit to happen as it cost more money short term for no short term benefit but AMD was just "fuck you, people want it".
AMD created dual core while Intel had its dumpster fire 1core hyperthreaded Pentium 4.
The list goes on forever. Intel hasn't done shit but force things down people's throats with marketing, overprice, and get lucky that Hector was retarded and okay'd Bulldozer after Jim Keller wasn't there to call everyone retards.

That's some desperate fanboyism. AMD hasn't been able to compete since dual core reached consumers.

AMD hasn't been a player for 10 years with several failed generations. Intel totally dominated the market with faster and more efficient CPU's. Now, AMD is back in the game with 14nm chips that have hyperthreading, while also doubling the amount of physical cores and threads. To top it off they are going to sell them at much lower prices than Intel.

Intel has gotten complacent after all these years. They figured AMD was finished. They will lose big on this, but since they're so big they'll be able to take the hit and learn from it. AMD definitely needs Ryzen to wipe the floor with the current Intel stock, to show that they're still capable of competing at the highest level (they were about to go under).

I firmly believe the hype is real, and the benchmarks are real. Look at how many motherboard manufacterers jumped on the Ryzen bandwagon by releasing a wide variety of boards, much more than any previous AMD generations. They were clearly very impressed. They smelled money and they wanted in.

lmao you have no clue.

Intel didn't actually beat AMD until 2011 with Sandy Bridge.
It was only in 2007-2010 that AMD was no longer straight shitting on Intel and things were more even.
Processors like the Phenom II X4 for $275 or whatever was just as good as the Q9450 or whatever at at $325 and so on.

It was only when Sandy Bridge came out that there was the i5-2500k that was 2/3rds the price of the Q9450, 50% higher clocks, 15% higher IPC. So more than double the performance/$ all of a sudden.

And that's why Ryzen is so clearly a game changer, because people that aren't teenagers like you also remember Sandy Bridge's release. It's as big as Sandy Lake was; more than double the performance for the price again.

Only if we talk about AMD CPUs. The performance is literally the same or a bit lower against Intel, if you own Kaby or Skylake there is no actual reason to lose money by swapping to Ryzen. It's just that the performance per dollar is going to be incre-fucking-dible, assuming those charts are real. Still Intel isn't dead by any means, the current market share of AMD in CPU departament is non-existent so they need at least 2-3 of future domination in order to also get all those folks who already own Broadwell/Sky/Kaby.

>Only if we talk about AMD CPUs
I was comparing double the performance/$ compared to Nehalem. I skipped Westmere because Westmere was a more in-between transitional architecture that only lasted 1 year, and Sandy Bridge was shown a year earlier as what Intel was working toward from the start.

In a modern system both memory and the CPU require kernel mode code — as do devices — to function.

Memory requires management of virtual memory tables. The CPU requires maintenance of process control structures.

In the business, such code is not called a "driver".

Generally, one thinks of a device driver as being kernel mode code that responds to devices through the interrupt vector.

That said, on some systems there are "printer drivers" that do not fit that definition of driver.

In short, do memory and CPU have something called a "driver"? No. Do they have something analogous to a driver? Yes.

Your main point about price is the fact that it simply isn't worth the upgrade.

As I previously stated, if I bought a 7600K, I'd be paying around the same I did for the 3570K, and get NO performance improvement at all unless I overclocked it. It's not a surprise people are hanging on to these systems, who wants to pay that much for a 0-15% performance gain depending on how you did in the silicon lottery? Not to mention you might actually LOSE performance if you opt for a non K CPU, if you had an older OC K SKU.

Back when intel was doubling their performance year on year, this wasn't an issue. The slowest C2D's were faster that the fastest P4's, the slowest i7's faster than the C2Q extreme CPU's. It was WORTH the upgrade, it isn't anymore.

That is, until now. (Hopefully)

Many people were rightly skeptical of Bulldozer's architecture before release. People knew that it was going to have to hit insane clocks to compete with intel on single threaded tasks. The only people that were surprised when it failed weren't paying attention.

The Zen architecture, at least what we know and that's a lot already, isn't nearly as lofty in its goals as Bulldozer was. Bulldozer needed a lot of things in the industry to go its way. AMD overestimated the rest of the industry.

Ryzen is different. It's going to be good because it's too simple to suck.

"And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, so the LORD gave them into the hand of the Philistines for forty years"
Judges always was a favorite of mine. I decided to take inspiration from this and apply it to the high level architecture. Zen wasn't just something to be released and produce ho-hum performance. What I decided to do is show those greasy kikes the wrath of God. I am their new God.""

Looked like they were legitimate bundles from Amazon, too; In the bundle price breakdown, 1800x (WOF) was 499 and 1700x (WOF) was 399, available March 2nd.

Without fan, though... How much will the variant with the high-end Wraith cooler cost, then? I was thinking of spending a bit more over the 1700 to get the 1700x for both the potentially better lottery results and the high-end Wraith, but at 400+ USD, it's difficult to justify over the 1700 with the Spire, which hopefully will be around 319-329 as leaked previously.

Even outside of that, I'm debating if I should try for 1600x (if it comes with high-end Wraith) with a X370 motherboard instead of my planned 1700 with B350 motherboard. The former will bring me an effortless overclock that should last for 3-4 years when I would buy the highest end, potentially final Zen release WOF to pop into a powerful mobo, but the latter feels like a 2600k situation that, maybe not maxed out GHz wize, will be plenty for 4-5 years and be the only Zen I need; I can always buy a better cooler later.

I'm sitting snug with a 6700k/Z170 build but I am seriously considering buying an 1800X and top ROG/sabertooth board at launch. I already have the 32GB ddr4 from my current build so at most, I'd be looking at a $750 bill. 8c/16t AND motherboard for less than $1k? And similar if not better single core performance than intel's offering? What's the catch? Is Ryzen going to missing a bunch of instructions or something?

I was hype for Vega cards as well but AMD support on Linux is TRASH. Unless that's changed as of late.

What should I do with my 6700k/z170? Poverty build for my little sister? idk

Sell it and buy an SSD or the best cooler available and overclock the 1800x to 5GHz.

I have 3 SSDs (sata based, non M.2 so maybe a 1TB 960 pro?) and my cooler is a single tower affair similar to hyper 212 EVO. But I do have a 360mm and 240mm radiators in my closet. Alphacool UT60's. Also have an EK all copper AMD block. is AM4 supposed to be similar to AM3 in terms of holes?

At 5ghz (with some guesstimation of the voltage curve) you'd need a custom loop to cool such a beast. A 6900k at 4.3ghz will be pulling around 200w as a point of reference.

>> No.59060593

The difference between the 1700X and 1800X bothers me a bit.

The 1800X is 28% more expensive, but only has a 6% higher base clock and is otherwise identical. I wish they would be upfront about why; if the binning is significantly better or if it comes with a high performance cooler etc.

Does anyone know?

>> No.59060606

it's probably higher binning. Better overclock chances etc. Think the FX-9590 boosting to 5.0ghz out of the box compared to the bone stock fx-8350 which if you were lucky would hit 4.8ghz with a fuck ton of voltage.

>> No.59060607

It's not just Keller, both their management and Radeon group became surprisingly competent. In the year of 2017 AMD drivers are better than NVIDIA ones. What a weird time we live in.

>> No.59060627

I'm waiting for reviews to find out myself. I can't see any reason other than binning but how extreme it is can't be known yet.

Personally the 1800X had better consistently OC at least 300+ MHz higher than the 1700x for me to consider shelling out the extra $110 for it.

Valve employees are working on AMD Linux drivers.
AMD has open sourced much of its software.

You fucked up, but whatever if you've got the money its a huge deal. Hope that your 6700 is still worth more than $150 used after Ryzen drops.

Even factoring in the $300-$400 loss from selling that CPU and motherboard, you still end up with good value because Ryzen is so cheap lmao

>> No.59060789

XFR changes the binning game a lot. I'll use GPU's as an example as it makes things easier to put into perspective.

With a GPU, AMD can fab chips and determine what a reasonable clockspeed, voltage, and TDP will be at minimum, and do some preliminary testing to find the absolute best and those that are simply "good enough" and leave anything in between as chance. This is to maximize yields and minimize production costs as seconds lost on additional testing per chip can up to millions in overall cost. A third party then orders the chips in bulk and is free to do further testing as they see fit. They decide how worth it it is to further filter out the best performers for their top tier cards and define further steps between.

With XFR, the testing process is automated by design. AMD can let the chip decide what it can run at and just define minimum goals.
So the really high priced chips are proven superior from the get go. What we don't know are the defined goals. It's possible lower tier chips will clock just as well, but at a higher voltage and TDP threshold. XFR thus doesn't just offer a robust auto overclocking utility for consumers, it also automates the selection process on the manufacturing side.

ehh, selling off my old intel stuff isn't a priority for me. I have the money to buy the new AMD stuff without pause. Shit if I REALLY wanted to, I could've gotten that i7-6950X 10c/20t and awesome x99 set but fuck that $2k tag and intel's price gouging.

Yea nah. I get what you're saying, but it doesn't apply to everyone. I bought the 6700k because I needed the threads for editing work, but also wanted good single core for gaming. Plus the locked 6700 and comparable xeon were all more expensive than the 6700K at microcenter.

>> No.59060835

Oh that's the same place I was at.

The cost doesn't matter, but Intel offered super shitty value the past few years.

Hopefully the 7nm die shrink and 30%+ gains in 2 years are still AM4. I just hate upgrading motherboard and liked the days where I could just put a new CPU in for improvements.

But some advanced functionality may require driver for the CPU to function correctly.
Reminder that any AMD multicore (since Athlon X2) requires a driver on Windows XP pre SP1, otherwise it would fucking desync the fucking cores with very frequent bsods and literally negative ping values (most obvious giveaway of that issue)
Who knows what kind of engineering oversight and/or planned obsolescence trigger will be in Ryzen
