Why is this thing so big?

And why isn't AyyyyMD focusing on single core performance and creating more efficient CPU's instead of super-gluing 4 dies together?

>> No.66612626

>Why is this thing so big?
Because it has so many cores.

>And why isn't AyyyyMD focusing on single core performance and creating more efficient CPU's instead of super-gluing 4 dies together?
They're just about neck and neck with Intel on single core now with Ryzen 2. You been living under a rock, or are you getting half a rupee for this thread?

>> No.66612631

>single core performance
Because at 4 GHz computers a single thread is already insanely fast. And most workloads are multithreaded these days. Example
- Word
- UI rendering
- disk access
- browser in background
- playing music
- network stack

All that happening at once. So more cores is would be better then faster cores.

Single core performance is hard. Ever since Sandy Bridge, Intel has only been making small incremental improvements in SC. AMD's moar cores approach has carved them a very nice niche in the server and workstation market. Only in gaming is Intel still at the top, but not even by a huge margin.

Performance might be irrelevant for you, but that's not the same for everyone.

Its power efficiency is better than of intel, and along with those extra cores & threads it's very competitive in workstation loads.
Today's programs use threads too, I myself have an i5 with an aftermarket cooler and it's still keeping up well

Well, there's only so many compromises you can make to security before the performance benefit offset diminishes.

The processor real estate is very small. It's 213mm2, meaning 600ish per 450mm wafer (this is Ryzen 1 also). The interposer is what occupies so much space; in practice it isn't necessary for it to be so big as it is passive, but it allows more pins to be allocated (4094 of them) which allow TR to accommodate the memory channels, PCIe lanes, etc.. Really only half of them need to be occupied as the same interposer is used in EPYC/SP3, the others are NC.

From a technology standpoint, it's scalability. The industry is moving towards scalable solutions, increased parallelism whenever possible (HPC, content creation, and even gaming and PLM/CAD). Infinity Fabric is going to be key to building a NUMA, highly scalable, high bandwidth both core to core and also core to DRAM and core to coprocessor (likely through xGMI or PCIe) infrastructure.

Gaming and the diy market is not very big although still profitable especially since gamers are so gullible from a technological standpoint; AMD understands that they don't need to be the apex of the gaming market to command a significant share back and that their design scalability is one of the major advantages towards high impact market penetration using what is practically a single design. So no, AMD at the moment does not have the "gaming" advantage, but with 7nm (feature sizes on par with 10nm), Zen 2 will very likely be well ahead in every single performance metric; it would likely flip the script completely on Intel.

Multicore is even more advantageous on Linux, where the OS is dozens of small processes communicating, the kernel is multithreaded, and many applications go full multiprocess. My FX-8350 is crap at single threaded, but I'm only now starting to feel the pinch on performance because those eight cores share the load so well.

The real problem is that x86 just isn't capable of going superduperscalar (4+ IPC) like VLIW or other more modern architectures. That would send performance through the roof and keep TDP sane. The Mill CPU or a new architecture Microsoft is working on seem to be the way forward.

People still don't understand the IPC is on par now. Even Zen 1 IPC was higher than Haswell. The only thing that lacks is clock, but it will increase further on 7nm. 4.3 GHz are already possible, 700 MHz to go.

Eh, Ryzen has a huge disadvantage in avx2, but even that is a relatively niche use case. In the tests the Stilt used, once you factor out avx2+ performance there's only a 6% difference between pinnacle ridge and coffee lake.

fuck this idiots

>> No.66619770

Nice quads, but Ryzen's got absolutely massive caches. The L3 literally takes up about a 3rd of the die space on each CCX. You could double the size of a Ryzen die and still have pretty great yields on 14/12nm processes. Zen was at 80% top-bin (1800x) yield 6 months into production IIRC. Throwing more SRAM at the problem won't be an issue.

>> No.66619775

I actually went and did the math on this: assuming equal defect density and based off of AMD's 80% stated full fat yields, AMD would be able to get about 200 fully functional dies from each wafer. Intel would get 36 at the same yields.

Assuming all AMD dies are put to Epyc, thats about 50 or so full 32c CPUs (at about $4k each) per wafer, netting about $200k total. To match this, intel would have to sell each of the 28c dies for a minimum of $5700 USD.

Keep in mind, this doesnt take into account the fact AMD can use the other not-fully-working dies for other things depending on what's fucked. These fuckhuge 28c dies? Meant for Xeons only, so if they come off the line bad, into the bin they go.

>> No.66623066

I guess Intel is still making a profit, even if tiny, with their processors, so if AMD sells an equally capable product at the same price or slightly lower, that's a yuge margin for AMD, so probably a bit of the two. At this rate, EBYN will fuck Intel in the ass, unless they develop something similar to infinity fabric. Intel had something kinda like that, but can't remember its name. It also wasn't so mature.

How's about single core performance in older games? What's the use in upgrading if the new processor can't deliver smooth gameplay experience. or like FX, older games ran like shit compared to Phenom II. Older games here refers to 1996 - 2k4 titles. Single core only. Modern hardware should be able to deliver 100+ fps on older games w/everything jacked to the max and @ high resolutions w/butter smooth experience without breaking a sweat. If not, then something is wrong. Not everyone plays latest gen games. Nor does everyone use strictly multi core programs. I still use older programs cause they "just work". Why fuck up a good thing?.

Because you’re retarded! Don’t you know that no single threaded application needs high single core preformance? If it does and it’s still single core than the developers are shit!
