Sharikou you waste of space and gods work:
All the hot air that comes out of you lame mouth could be better used if we just send you to Iraq so you can teach AMD crap to the Mehdi Army. I would love to see you begging so they would not burn your lame ass using HOT AMD chips ..
Than again, they already know .. why would they waste a crappy CPU to teach your worthless ass something?
Can you come up with something original other than a bimbo showing off a mobo that she has no clue what it is?
Thats the first time I hear "AMD on AMD" system BUZZword.
You guys know what th ehell she is talking about? gang bang?

Wow Sharikou.... you managed to post a 1 month old video of products that nobody can buy!
Funniest part about the video: You can barely hear them talking because the fans are so loud!
Second Funniest Part: No actual benchmarks, no actual demo running, just a blond babe designed to make geeks look at her and not the system.
Third Funnies Part: 4 GPUs, I guess that is how many AMD needs to beat a single Nvidia card.

What a load of shit. There is not a single objective benchmark of K10 anywhere on the Internet and the damn thing is supposed to be out in 2 weeks. Meanwhile, Intel's chips that aren't even due out for 3 months have already been thoroughly tested. I can't wait for your alter-egos to start spouting shit Sharikou, I need a fucking laugh.

This is my favorite part of the movie... this and the dozen fans they have trying to keep it cooled.

Anyone can cherry pick a part out of 100,000 and show off a high clock on a future product. My question is: what is the yield of their 3GHz Phenom? Is it even 0.01%? Could they actually bring it to market?

Even overclocked HD 2900 XT from AMD with 1GB ram is fragged all over by Nvidia's forth fastest GPU - the 8800 GTS 320MB. Pathetic. This is the same kind of performance we will see from Barcelona.

AMD's mobile offering next year are still pathetically worthless. Still based on the old slow K8 architecture and 65nm, so barely any performance improvement.

I think this is AMD's new strategy: Launch products that are slower than your competitor's fourth fastest products, then claim that you never intended to compete with their fastest prodcut.

It could be as early as Q4'07 according to Sharikou!

Why are you so childish? Sharikou is not affiliated with AMD so anything he says is his opinion.

It's almost clinically impossible for AMD to go out of business.

Just pray that they don't get 2.5GHz+ CPUs out this year.

One idiot actually complained that only cherry-picked chips could run that high.

If it was demoed at 2.5GHz, then the complaint would have been that they couldn't get it higher.

The K8 is not worthless. Mobile doesn't need the fastest chip, only the most power efficient.

Griffin is for mainstream notebooks, not high perf. With tweaking a 2.6GHz Kuma should be able to run around 45W.

Why not have both? First benchmarks with desktop Penryns hint at rather good power usage, mobile-optimized CPUs should be even better.

Blogger Giant said...

The problem was always Sony batteries, they spends hundreds of millions of dollars recalling and replacing them. Or did they just do that for no reason at all?

Given AMD's strategy of releasing a product that is fragged by the competition's fourth fastest product this clearly indicates that AMD will try and compete with a 2Ghz Clovertown CPU. But their power hungry 95W 2GHz CPU will need 90% more power to run at the same frequency.

winning 2% of the benchmarks

Don't give AMD too much credit! The only thing they win in now is Sciencemark!

AMD is finished. Old news. Intel has a lead of ten months in quad core server CPUs, and a lead of a year in desktop quad core CPUs. AMD BK Q2'08.

Maybe they should read TGDaily more. According to them AMD has gained almost 20% in mobile since january and is at 62% of desktop revenue in retail. And also 42% revenue in mobile.

The ASPs are not much different so I'd say that they will more than likely lose less money this quarter as 65nm should start contributing more savings.

Of course that is dependent upon how many 90nm Turions they put out with the Opterons but since server is lower volume it should balance out.

You little kids really need to get lives. I wish Sharikou hadn't started with this BK crap. He's just feeding the trolls.

Who says you can't overclock the Q6600? I've got mine at 3Ghz easily. I do lots of video encoding, so I can easily use the full 8MB L2 cache and four 3Ghz cores. Or I can have my encoding run on three cores, leaving the last core free to play games or whatever.

For most people though, the powerful dual core Core 2 Duo is more than adequate.

AMD's 3GHz K10 to break 30,000 3DMark06

LAST WEEK in Leipzig my kit was nicked, but before that happened we asked AMD if it would let us run memory benchmark scores on a system there. The reps gave us the company line and declined, but can still disclose the benchmark scores of K10 here and now.
If you were wondering why AMD was hiding the scores of K10 so secretly, there were two reasons. The first might be that the CPU sucks badly and after AMD comes out, Intel's lads can start celebrating the death of AMD. On the other hand, there the was clear and present danger of the K10 significantly beating not just the current Conroe/Kentsfield generation, but easily out besting Wolfdale/Yorkfield. This statement warrants at least three hatemails from Intel's R&D lads, but all that we will disclose here are results we have in our possession. The pics are gone with my stolen laptop, though.

The particular piece of equipment that was briefly in our possession allowed us to run 3DMark06, the most important to overclockers worldwide, and Everest 4.0, our favourite memory benchmark.

The particular processor was none other than a single socket Barcelona or Agena FX, call it what you will. The reference motherboard containing RD790 chipset packed two HD 2900XT cards, and the memory installed was Corsair’s Dominator PC2-9136C5D, or the same ones we have been using ever since they came out. There was a Raptor hard drive, and that was about that. OCZ will like the fact that PP&C Quaddie CrossFire PSU was installed in the system.

Windows Me II (Vista) Ultimate was installed as the operating system of choice. For some odd reason, the 32-bit version was installed in a system with 4GB of memory, needless to say the system detected 3.24GB, and benchmarketing commenced.

When running at 2.5GHz, the 3DMark06 score ended at 23.768, so we were thrilled to see such a good score coming from two 512MB cards. This showed the clear potential of this four core processor marchitecture, but the helter skelter ride happened after we overclocked the processor to 3.0GHz.

When clocked at 3.0 GHz and equipped with two overclocked HD2900XT cards in CrossFire, Agena FX or single-core Barcelona smashed an index of 30,000 3DMarks 06. Yes, you’ve read it right - the barrier of 30,000 was passed to, barely, 30.031. We know that there are different systems floating around, and we have no doubt that leaks will start appearing after this article goes live. Knowing what was the overclock of Kentsfield processor, Intel Yorkfield has quite a big job to do. One thing is clear, though. Intel needs Nehalem, and it needs it badly.

To be clear with you, dear readers, two HD2900XT cards were overclocked to 830MHz for the core and 900MHz for the memory, but ominous Catalyst 7.7 drivers were used.

Memory wise, it is particularly interesting to see benchmark scores of DDR2-800 on AMD’s Athlon 64 X2 or now this Phenom FX something. When running in dual channel mode, a theoretical bandwidth of 12.8 GB/s can be reached, but that is a pipe dream - of course.

In the real world, our Intel Kentie 2.93GHz test bed will score around 7.5 GB/s, Athlon 64 X2 5000+ shoots around 8.3-8.8 GB/s, depending on the memory latency, and now Phenom scores even better – pretty close to a five figure range. But regardless of missing the 10 GB/s mark, it is still faster than any DDR3 memory on an Intel system, regardless of the clock achieved by the DDR3 memory. If you put the memory on 1066 MHz, 11GB/s bandwidth was smashed with read, write and copy tests and that was by quite some margin.

We expect the results to go officially live prior to Barcelona launch in September. µ

What are their similarities? Or more precisely, what exactly was reverse engineered?


"More importantly, he says, the Quad-Core Opteron (Barcelona) will offer 45-85% better performance than current dual-core Opteron processors at the same power consumption and thermal dissipation"

SImilar GPU speed, 4GHz Core2Quad and score of ~19k. How fast must that Barcelona be to rise the score by over 11k points?

Unfortunately I don't have the formulae but my guess would be >5x better IPC.

Blogger Giant said...

Two possibilities:

1) K10 has a 500% IPC advantage over Core 2

2) The Inquirer is BSing

11:23 AM, August 28, 2007  
Blogger Ho Ho said...

Actually unless Barcelona magically makes X2900 50% faster at same clock as Core2 then that score is impossible to reach with even infinitely fast CPU. With 8000/8600 for SM2/3 scores it ends up at around 24.4k and you cannot get over that in any possible way due to how the score is calculated.

With 50% faster GPU score Barcelona needs to be "only" twice as fast as 4GHz Core2Quad. Can anyone suggest how could Barcelona speed up R600 by 50% and still be twice as fast as Core2?

Thing is that I know the formulae that 3dmark uses to calculate its score. Assuming that the GPU clock speeds are correct and they achieve same score as others at those clocs then infinitely fast CPU would give a score of around 24.4k. With 1.5x higher GPU performance 3GHz K10 would need to be "only" 2x faster than 4GHz core2quad.

Now tell me if K10 makes R600 work 50% faster and is 2x faster than 4GHz Core2Quad or Inquirer smoked something a bit too much?

I don't think anyone would dispute that the Inq has gotten things wrong before, but it is usually in the vein of "a reliable source from AMD told us such and such" only to find out later that the source was wrong. In this situation they are claiming to have actual first-hand benchmark data for K10. So possible scenarios are:

1. The Inq is lying.
2. The Inq somehow screwed up the benchmarks - perhaps the computer really had 3 2900XTs in it, eh?

Blogger Ho Ho said...

Somehow I doubt that 3dmark supports >3GPUs. Also I could understand that they might have misread some numbers but misread the number of GPUs? Even Inq can't be that stupid.

If there had been three GPUs and they would scale linearly then it still means that K10 is twice as fast as core2quad@4GHz. In what parallel universum can that happen?

I wonder what Intel will do to its X38 if the 4 PCIe slots they have on it don’t work with SLI or either Crossfire...
Nvidia won’t be dumb enough to cut its Intel chipset sales (especially high-end) by giving SLI for free to X38. Nor AMD is interested in running Crossfire with Intel chipset (at least quad will not work for sure).

Yeah.. I admit my english language is too bad. In fact if you say my english language failed to pass the 9th grade I will accept it as well.. FYI, english is my 2nd language.. ;-)


FUCK YOU AMD FANBOIS AND YOUR BS!!!!

Wow.. is the above sentence part of the good english language? or maybe you failed the 10th grade of the attitude skill? Ekeke..

In fact, Intel's stock is now trading at double that of AMDs.

This clearly shows that none of the major investor banks think that Barcelona will have any discernible impact on the war against Intel.


No, what this shows is your ignorance concerning the stock market. Maybe a kinder soul will explain it to you.

13ringinheat will die if phenom will be better, now I'm sure of it.

Here 13ringinheat,
The high-end RD790 has motherboard makers eagerly awaiting its launch, and they have listed the new chipset as one of their major product focuses for the fourth quarter, the sources added.

According to AMD's product planning, the 65nm RD790 made at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is the vendor's first quad-graphics platform that supports the next-generation Phenom processors and HyperTransport 3.0. It will also introduce PCI Express 2.0 and Triple CrossFire support.

Asustek and Gigabyte to be first to launch AMD RD790 mobos in September, say sources

Does Intel have chipsets manufactured at 65nm?

aguia, did you miss my previous post that said why is that score impossible with infinitely fast CPU and two R600's in CF?

Aguia, you missed this part:

is the vendor's first quad-graphics platform

Quad GPU graphics platforms are not a new thing. The Voodoo 5 6000 (unreleased) had 4 GPUs on the one card. Quad SLI also used four GPUs.

Does Intel have chipsets manufactured at 65nm?

Why yes, of course. The P35 chipset is produced on Intel's 65nm process.

No ho ho in fact I had a reply for you, but because of some stupid browser error I lost the reply and I didn’t bother to write it again.

But very resuming the post I had for you:

Somehow I doubt that 3dmark supports >3GPUs. Also I could understand that they might have misread some numbers but misread the number of GPUs? Even Inq can't be that stupid.

If there had been three GPUs and they would scale linearly then it still means that K10 is twice as fast as core2quad@4GHz. In what parallel universum can that happen?


The 3dmark doesn’t support 3 GPUs like you said, it’s the GPU drivers that have to support the 3 GPUs, after that requirement the only think it’s needed for working with more GPUs its more PCIe slots on the mother board.
ATI have already talked of 2 cards + 1 psychics card in the past and now its 3 cards + 1 psychics card, so I’m pretty sure it was one RD790 (since they are already done) with 3 GPUs (like in the AMD demo).

Even with some quad FX motherboard using two quad core AMD cpus at 3.0Ghz its certainly impossible to achieve those results for sure with only two HD 2900XT.

Correct giant.
But some details:
Voodoo 5 6000 was one single card with 4 GPUs so not exactly the same thing.

Quad SLI exists only on Quad FX AMD platform if I'm not mistaken.

And RD790 is the first to have four PCIe slots all coming from the same north bridge chip, simplifying the board design and cutting costs.

The PCIe 2.0 is also a good add.

" I’m pretty sure it was one RD790 (since they are already done) with 3 GPUs (like in the AMD demo)."

Had the score been around 25k with three GPUs I would have agreed. 30k is simply way out of this world. Have you got any idea how massive IPC lead would Barcelona need to have to achieve this kind of score?

Did anyone else notice that raising the CPU by 500MHz raised the score by 8k points according to the "benchmarkers"? How can anyone explain this? Did they remove one GPU and downclocked the others with that test run?


"Voodoo 5 6000 was one single card with 4 GPUs so not exactly the same thing."

Those four VPUs used the same Scaling Link Interface aka SLI as VooDoo2.


"Quad SLI exists only on Quad FX AMD platform if I'm not mistaken."

You are. QuadSLI works on every SLI motherboard. All you need to use are two dualGPU video cards.

Not true. Any SLI chipset works with quad SLI.

You are correct of course. We've gone back quite a while now, the Voodoo 5 wasn't a GPU at all. The Voodoo 5 5500 used two VPUs with internal SLI, the 6000 used four.

As memory serves, they rushed to add SLI support to the VSA-100 after they saw how fast the Geforce was (the VSA-100 chip they were using was originally intended to compete with the TNT2).

The world really needs a united police force to track down internet users using "ekekeke" in seriousness on the internet.

And then deliver a deadly shot to the back of their heads.

Now thats how to save the planet one idiot at the time.

OneXpert please don't spam.
