What are your thoughts about the Ryzen Sr3 1200X? It's gonna be the i5 killer... or the i3 7350k counterpart

No, it's gonna be the i5 executioner if the newest leaks are correct.

I don't see the point in paying for any of the "X" CPUs for the auto overclocking. Why not just increase the turbo and end up with a better result? Basically the X CPUs are for tards unless I'm missing something

You've got it right. The X cpus are basically for dumb people who want e-penis points.

All CPUs are binned, ledditor. TDP could be higher because it overclocks automatically over 4GHz.

XFR is not auto overclocking.
It gives you free frequency at any power level, no matter what your base clocks and turbo pstates are set too.

You overclock your Ryzen chip to 4.5ghz.
XFR will push frequency even higher than 4.5ghz whenever possible.

The chip knows the characteristics of the transistors its made from. It knows how they behave at a given temp, level of leakage, etc. It is monitoring these metrics in real time. The chip internally adjusts settings to squeeze out a tiny bit more frequency so long as it has the thermal headroom necessary to exploit these characteristics. Its free frequency at any level.

Good change, but what about the quad-channel in the ryzen, they're gonna put that feature right?

>> No.59061656

Ryzen will be dual channel, but the bandwidth change from quad channel DDR3-1600 to dual channel DDR4-3200 should be negligible.

>> No.59061674

I will be honest.
I don't think the Ryzen 3 1200X or Ryzen 5 1400X will even beat the i3 or i5 from Intel.
The only CPUs from Ryzen that are worth to buy and look into is the Ryzen 5 1600X, Ryzen 7 1700X

>> No.59061711

That would be an interesting one, since the peak theoretical bandwidth of each is an identical 51.2GB/s. Real world performance always comes down to the memory controller itself though. Still somewhat of an unknown quantity for Zen.

>> No.59061838

There's no auto-overclocking system in existence that can detect and correct instability in real time with zero performance hit. If XFR cranks frequency beyond what you find is your max stable overclock, it'll just cause instability. There's no free frequency to be had beyond the max that your chip can handle, and if you're any sort of overclocker, you'll be pushing fairly close to that limit anyway.

I'd imagine it'll either be automatically disabled or highly recommended to be disabled when you overclock manually. I remember having to disable Turbo Core when I cranked my 1090T up to 4GHz, as it'd take things even further and the chip couldn't handle it, even on a single core.

>> No.59061851

Those are awfully nice fallacious assumptions you're making.

>> No.59061860

That's an awfully nice way of saying "I'm tech-illiterate and can't refute anything you say, but I strongly disagree."

Do feel free to actually argue any point I raised. Be sure to provide actual facts in the process.

>> No.59061867

I think the real advantage will be in 'unexpected' workloads when there's still plenty of thermals left to crank beyond what a normal overclock would be at. Normally your overclock is set to what you can operate at 100% for a extended period of time. To accomplish this you can't just set to +500Mhz, because the thermals overhead may not be there. But XFR can boost past your preset for 100% for the amount of time it takes to warm the heatsink before the effects of diminishing thermals come into play.

>> No.59061912

You didn't make a point, you asserted something as factual when you know literally nothing about the topic. You're talking out of your ass, and now you're instantly defensive because you know you don't have a leg to stand on. Its what all shitposters do.
XFR is not auto overclocking which is something you don't understand. It adjusts metrics that the motherboard and BIOS do not expose to the end user. It is exploiting material characteristics of the transistors themselves within a certain temperature range to squeeze out small frequency gains. In fact the end user has no control over it whatsoever, and the chip does in fact check if its target XFR frequency will be stable, in real time.

>> No.59062270

XFR, if delivered as advertised, will be a highly dynamic resource scheduler. The resources in question being voltage and clockspeed potential.

AMD claims it can sense when a workload is biased towards certain cores and clock them higher independent of others on the fly to the maximum your cooling solution and the chip's voltage handling ability can provide. Thus the chip doesn't sacrifice single core speed for multicore or vice versa.

Considering cpus and gpus can already downclock and reduce voltage when idling, I imagine XFR will expand upon that as well, coming as close to "switching off" unutilized cores as possible while delivering maximum resources to the cores being taxed hardest.

This is also done on a HARDWARE level. There's a considerable portion of diespace dedicated to this feature, and for good reason.

Beyond being a major selling point, it allows AMD to easily and quickly test each chip to know its actual potential. Thus far, it would be necessary to test each chip in a number of configurations, determine how viable these targets are, then set product tiers based on limited data points and leave the rest to chance. This is the basis of the "silicon lottery." It's why we sometimes get exceptional overclocks and sometimes get total turds. It's in the manufacture's best intrest to account for all chips and price accordingly, but extensive testing adds significantly to cost.

What I see XFR as is a simple method to automate the binning process. AMD can instead gather datapoints from all chips produced and determine which ones are best, which ones are worse, and everything between.
That said, it doesn't mean non x and lower tier chips cant benefit from manual overclocks. AMD could have a target like "x clockspeed at x frequency for x amount of chips" and lower binned offerings could be lacking in just one area. We don't know those targets, however, so the lottery continues.

First NDA for prices expired

>> No.59062305

My question about XFR though is if the end-user can alter the TDP target for the chip and have XFR work within the new power range.

>> No.59062316

Fuck meant to say "x clockspeed at x voltage on x ammount of cores."

I fucked that all up

>> No.59062358

Tha we don't know yet, but I'm sure it will be at least touched on in reviews next week.

If we're lucky we'l get options in oversride to set thresholds and mabe even quick toggles for things like "cool and quiet mode" and "high performance mode."

If we're not lucky the specifications are also on a hardware level and cannot be bypassed without manual overclocking.

>> No.59062409

>I don't think the Ryzen 3 1200X or Ryzen 5 1400X will even beat the i3
Um... the 1200X has twice the cores of an i3-, and the 1400X has 2-4x the threads.

And the i3s are mostly clocked pretty low except for the i3-7350k which is a 4.2Ghz dual core that costs $30 more than the dual core 1200X.

Hyperthreading is simply not better than twice the cores unless the per core performance is significantly higher.
But since the 1200X will probably overclock to well over 4Ghz, and the IPC is within 5-10%, the per core performance of the i3-7350k is not "significantly higher".

The only point of buying intel at the moment is for the G4560. But there are some games that have been coming out that pretty much don't support dual core anymore.

Also overclock also includes your idle wattage and temps.

It's yet to be seen how well XFR works, though.

>> No.59062450

In the video it says the XFR will only bring the 1800X that is 3.6ghz-4.0ghz to 4.1ghz. That's fucking nothing.

The lower tier stuff is coming later, like how new processor releases are supposed to go.

Release the best stuff first to get the most profit out of those wanting to get the new tech, then release lower level versions, cashing on the success of the higher ones.

Releasing lower tier stuff first is a sign that the higher-tier stuff is garbage.

There will be 4c/4t Ryzen CPU's. (Not sure if they are APU's as well)

If it played within TDP range then it should go to 4.5Ghz-5.0Ghz with a custom loop, not only 4.1Ghz.

i5 killer

>> No.59062756

I mean the 95W limit specified by AMD. a better cooling like a custom loop would increase the TDP headroom considerably but like you say it doesn't seem to be auto boosting to take advantage of that, pretty useless if it's not configurable

>> No.59063018

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 1400x 3.5-3.9+XFR? that would put it next to i5 7500 in my opinion.
