Given that the new GDDR6X — or G6X — memory standard was developed by Micron in partnership with Nvidia, it will be an exclusive to the RTX 3080 and 3090. This means that AMD will have to rely on the G6 non-X GDDR6 memory format for its upcoming RDNA 2 card. Though you’re not getting as wide a bandwidth here, the new RDNA 2 cards could potentially come with even more video RAM — up to 16GB — which could offset some of the speed gains Nvidia is boasting with its 10GB of RAM on the RTX 3080. For reference, the GDDR6X memory can perform up to 760GB per second, while the 8GB GDDR6 memory on the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition supports a maximum memory bandwidth of 448GB per second. … [Read more...] about AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: News, rumors, and everything we know so far
Based on AMD’s optimized 7nm node and utilizing the Zen 2 processor architecture, the new Ryzen 3000XT series starts at $249 with the Ryzen 5 3600XT. The family includes upgraded configurations like the $399 Ryzen 7 3800XT and the premium $499 Ryzen 9 3900XT. Unlike the standard non-XT Ryzen 3000 processors, the XT chips gain up to a 200 MHz boost in clock speeds thanks to refinements to the 7nm node to squeeze out more performance, AMD claims. … [Read more...] about AMD’s 12-core Ryzen 3900XT claims a 47% performance boost over Intel’s best

Ubuntu also showed similar improvements with a roughly four to five second faster boot time and vastly improved restart times. … [Read more...] about Which PC Boots Up and Shuts Down Faster: AMD or Intel?
As per the information inside the document, Zen 3 features two unified memory controllers (UMC), one per channel. Each channel supports up to two DIMMs. There is also mention of the scalable data fabric with the capacity to handle up to 512GB for each DRAM channel. In regards to memory speeds, Zen 3 processors arrive with native support for DDR4-3200, in the same vein as Zen 2. … [Read more...] about Ryzen 4000 Detailed: Purported AMD Confidential Documents Outline Zen 3’s Inner Workings
