Hmm sounds plausible/sensible tongue.png

<- is a computer engineer. :P

 

 

<--- is not a computer engineer ;P

 

figured it would be something like that though.

 

On a different note, digital foundry did an extensive review of the chip (1800x) and did some interesting benchmarks with certain settings, in case people are still hungry for some extra information that has not been processed in this review.

Well, considering the extra load, compared to the 95W chip the temps aren't that much different, which is strange to me.
I am not an engineer, so I am probably wrong here, but ehh, if you have a 65W chip and a 95W chip, when both are overclocked, one would say the 65W chip would still run cooler than the 95W chip, but when i see the benchmarks online that include temps, the difference is not that much.

A 65W chip running at 4 GHz and 1.4 volts will generally run the same as a 95W chip at 4 GHz and 1.4 volts.

They're all the same silicon, and they won't vary by much. The only reason the 1700 is a "65 watt" chip is because it's clocked lower at lower voltages. Once you change that, it's going to use a LOT more power.

Hmm, based on the articles posted, a 60 degrees is a lot more tolerable than 80+.

Hopefully we get a decent and accurate temperature measurement tool this time around, bulldozer was all over the place and ususally ended up "not supported" in most temperature reading tools i have used (real temp didn't support it, and core-temp gave weird readings for example)

Well, looks like they may have rushed the launch and bumbled a bit. Performance in some tests (even heavily threaded tests) is up nearly 40% in the Creators Update to Windows 10, with gaming tests seeing around 10%.

Looking forward to see how this plays out, but I'm annoyed AMD may have screwed themselves over yet again.

 

Just wait for the "gen 2" chips (first i7 920 vs the glorious 2600K anyone?) an di am pretty sure the performance is going to be a lot better.

 

 

Or so i hope.

Wow, that is quite hot to be honest, especially for a 65W chip.

Overclocking makes it...not a 65W chip. ;)
