AMD has gone on record saying it's "betting big on 7 nanometers" and the innovations that come with it. One of its upcoming 7nm products is "Rome," a next-generation Epyc processor that will be the world's first 7nm datacenter CPU, with increased instructions per clock (IPC) throughput and a big overall performance lift. Part of that performance lift will apparently come from having twice as much L3 cache as current-generation Epyc processors. How do we know this? AMD didn't offer up any specific details about Rome, at least not on a fine grain level. However, with a launch being imminent and with silicon already out in the wild, leaks are bound to happen. That brings us to a database entry for... Read more...
Earlier this week, we reported that there will initially be three processors launched in the upcoming 9th generation Intel Core family, which is being called the Coffee Lake Refresh. Interestingly enough, the latest rumors have suggested that only the top-end SKU – the Core i9-9900K– will have HyperThreading enabled, giving it 8 physical cores capable of executing 16 threads. We’re now getting confirmation of this news with the appearance of the middle child Core i7-9700K, which you can see in the SiSoft SANDRA graphic below. The screen grab confirms that the processor has HyperThreading disabled, which means that it has 8 physical cores along with 8 threads.... Read more...
When it comes to upcoming hot hardware, we love leaks. Thankfully for us, one of Intel's upcoming mobile gaming chips -- the Core i7-8850H -- is making its presence known early via the SiSoft SANDRA benchmarking suite. The Core i7-8850H is based on Intel's 8th generation 14nm++ Coffee Lake architecture, has a base clock of 2.6GHz, and contains 9MB of L3 cache. The chip has six physical cores and is HyperThreading-enabled, meaning that it can execute a total of 12 threads. On the SANDRA processor arithmetic benchmark, the Core i7-8850H was able to spit out a score of 159.21GOPS, while the processor multimedia score was pegged at 373.98Mpix/s. For comparison, the 4-core/8-thread Core i7-7820HQ... Read more...
