Amazon is the one that's up in contention, they have more reason than anyone to seek density on their servers, and EPYC offers that, the question is, just how dependant upon Intel are their system, for a company like that a change to a very different arch like EPYC could be problematic.
1&1 is another foundation partner, they're one of Europe's largest broadband companies and data hosts.

Pinned memory requires drivers and software just like HBCC. Hardware doesn't run on magic pixie dust. It runs on drivers and software.

DMA stands for Direct Memory Access brainlet.
That's what the hardware is. That's what HBCC is. Nvidia has DMA HARDWARE that can access main memory directly which is exactly what HBCC is.

HBCC is not transparent. A user must define how much main memory they want (pinned) for DMA to the GPU the same way you do it with PINNED MEMORY on an Nvidia card.

Repeat after me : DMA (Direct Memory Access)

Vulkan is a very low level language. Yes, to spur development for it, you have to recognize your development community and put in effort to abstract low level functionality to a level that developers are comfortable with. And yes, it performs better. Take 15min from shitposting on this thread and google it.

FP16 isn't a new phenomenon. It is implemented and exists in several cards. While RADEON marketed FP16 (HARD) w/ vega, since they're busy writing custom ROMs for miners, they have yet to enable it.

Pascal beats vega. I'm not a fanboy. I have AMD/Intel/Nvidia hardware, run windows/linux/macosx. Call a spade a spade and stop being a simpleton shill.


Radeon makes compelling hardware (on paper). When it comes to drivers/software/developer tools (where the rubber meets the road) they fall off a fucking cliff which is why OpenGL functions better than vulkan on their own dam cards.

Because Radeon group has clever marketing and ways of behaving like they're doing something new and exciting. Meanwhile, they're rewording/re-marketing/repackaging things that already exists...

Just about every feature you see Radeon boosting about exists on Nvidia cards already. The question is which one. Professional or consumer vidya. To that, someone asks : Well, does Radeon offer more to the consumer than nvidia? The reply is : No and not unless they have to.
Nvidia has had pinned memory and DMA for years. DMA is not transparent nor can it ever be because you're dealing with a shared memory resource. There are tons of drivers/software and it requires user specification (how much do you want allocated). This feature is even more pronounced on professional series cards just as it is w/ AMD. AMD pulls the same shit as Nvidia : They gimp the fuck out of consumer cards and put all of the interesting features in their pro-line cards. DMA (HBCC) is gimped on Vega cards. The real significant uses of HBCC (the ones that got demoed and the ones that drove 8K video production) are restricted to their workstation/pro cards... Just like nvidia.
RDMA (remote dma) is disabled on consumer cards by both Nvidia/AMD. All of those exciting Radeon demos were on professional/workstation cards... Yet brainlets think it will be accessible on Vega RX.

Young summer fags and their shilling. Both companies pull this shit w.r.t to pro/workstation vs consumer. I have no clue why people love shilling for Radeon when they pull the same crap as Nvidia. My hunch is that most people have no clue wtf they're talking about.

Do yourself a favor and ask AMD if they're going to expose FP16 to compute flows....
For gaming flows, you're going to be disappointed by how small a bump in performance it produces... FP16 might be x2 faster than FP32 on paper, but there is a shit town of hardware/firmware in the pipeline that matters w.r.t real-world performance.

A dma controller is implemented in hardware. Pinned memory, firepro GMA, and hbcc are memory management schemes that take advantage of dma. And like the other anon said it's transparent and acts in the same way as paging in an OS.

>> No.62052309

Yes they did give them the seed code for Vulkan and yet there obviously has been years and years of development beyond that point to mature it.

Maturation is what gets wide spread adoption... If mantle was mature enough for developers, it wouldn't take years and years of extended development.

Why I highlighted Nvidia's involved at Khronos was to define whose contributing to polishing/maturing it. The Radeon group has issues w/ polished drivers/software/dev tools. It's the major thing they struggle with.

Except there wasn't. The Nvidia chairman called mantle the basis for vulkan. And yes, it was years in development by EA DICE until AMD partnered up with Johan anderrson. Johan had stated everyone but AMD rejected the idea of a low level API and it wasn't until after they brought it to market that others tool an interest
Hell, the xbox1 used a neutered version of dx11 until just before mantle was released to the public. You're literally making up pure fantasy history

Thus nullifying any extended praising of one implementation vs the other. All are gimped on consumer cards from Nvidia to Radeon group. Pro line cards : the shit they demoed have these features fully enabled in all of their glory. So, there is no reason to be giving extended lip service to HBCC while ignoring that it's existed for years as pinned memory on Nvidia (Consumer cards).. Btw, do yourself a favor and look up the respective latency of the various memory management schemes. Yet again, you see Radeon's software/firmware/drivers rear its ugly head and shit on performance. So, as far as I'm concerned, HBCC is yet to be detailed and proven on consumer cards. It's just another bullet item marketing uses to wow brainlets that is a gimped handmedown from pro cards

I'm literally not making up a single thing. Vulkan has been through how many years of development from how many industry partners? You comment about frameworks for customized hardware (embedded closed systems) as if you can copy/pasta it to general purpose computing... You can't which is why the Khronos group was given the task to make this a reality with tons of industry partners and contributors over multiple years. Name dropping of talking heads and all-stars doesn't change the fact of what happens in the trenches to get these platforms to a level of maturation to be an open standard. Xbox1 isn't open nor was mantle :
> The Mantle API is only available as part of AMD Catalyst, only for Microsoft Windows, but not for other operating systems such as Linux.

So, cut the bullshit. People who do real software development know exactly how consortium work as well as seed code. If mantle was open, polished, and ready for primetime, it would have went to market that way years ago.

Radeon can't even write functioning drivers for their flagship vidya cards and you want me to believe they could have made a broad industry standard language that work across all vidya/operating systems/platforms? Nigga please

Mantle literally was not open and only worked on specific architectures and thus had no ability to become an open standard which is why AMD (hoping to steer) an open standard pushed it to Khronos hoping it would give them an advantage in steering the industry just like all consortium groups that have a dominant and founding member(s).

Please stop acting like a wet behind the ears star eyed brainlet who doesn't know how the industry functions or how down companies try to make their way back in via seeding consortiums w/ unpolished code they're familiar with that gives them a leg up over their competitors if it becomes a standard.

Even if this occurred, which it didn't they'd only do so in hopes that Nvidia's superior software team polished it just like Khronos has been doing for years. Google pulls the same shit w/ tensorflow and any company led (open framework). If you have half a brain, you'll see that they do so to gain advantage over and sway the market towards something they control.

This open bullshit is a meme. No one opens anything that is highly valuable. AMD locks down their consumer cards just like Nvidia. They do demos with pro-line cards, use marketing speak to get you hyped about the feature being on consumer cards and then they take a shit on the drivers/software stake if not outright disable it.

Vulkan is nowhere near primetime and that's after 4 years of cross industry contribution. This just goes to show you what the state of mantle was.

What Radeon can do right now is be clear on what features will be on the Radeon RX vega cards and when they'll actually write the fuckn drivers to be able to use it.

Once they manage to write proper software/drivers for their cards, then talk to me about Vulkan support. They're chasing too many things too far out w/ too little a budget.

Are you implying they have this shit available to compute workflows on consumer grade cards? Are you that dumb? If so, do you really think this is anything different than pinned memory?

So yeah, I am pointing out (on consumer cards) for which developers have written in support that its shit. It's shit because the hardware pipeline, firmware, drivers, and software have been over promised w.r.t real world performance.

As the typical idiot posting here knows fuck all about comp. arch, PCI-E latency is significant as is memory access time. Now multiply this by two and account for the interrupt/latency of getting the data into the portion of the pipe it belongs in on the return side of the transaction.

Meanwhile, you're stalled out on the video card waiting for memory. Memory starved. There's a reason why you simply add more onboard memory to the GPU if you have memory issues.

For compute flows, the same principal applies. PCIE latency and DMA access are brutal compared to GPU local memory access. Meanwhile brainlets think HBCC is the second coming...
