Daily Tech News 27 September 2022

Top Story

  • The reviews of AMD's Ryzen 7000 are in and it looks pretty darn good. (AnandTech)

    The first PassMark scores are in too.

    The 7950X is 25% faster than the 5950X single-threaded, and 44% faster multi-threaded. (CPUBenchmark.net)

    The 7900X is 35% faster than the 5900X on multi-threaded tests, confirming that the 5950X was indeed limited by power / thermals, and the increase to 170W has fixed that.

    And finally, while Intel's upcoming 13900K has a small advantage on single-threaded tasks - around 8% - the 7950X beats it by 21% on multi-threaded work.

    Which means - if you read through all 20 pages of that AnandTech review and get to the experiment at the end - that if you turn the power down on the 7950X all the way from 170W to 65W, it is still slightly faster than the 13900K, because that only reduced multi-threaded performance by 18%.

    And that means two things: First, AMD's upcoming Dragon Range laptop chip will deliver true desktop-class performance to high-end laptops. And second, if they could jam in the chiplets somehow, AMD could deliver 32 cores in Socket AM5 without any real bottlenecks.

  • Bae case quite notably has not moved from the depot. I called again and they put in a redelivery request again. And this time gave me a case number to refer to when I call again tomorrow.

    Their web site is still broken.
