That review is BS, how can a BR 4.2 score less than a FX 4.2 in CB ST..?..Benchmarks!
seemingly DDR4 is @ 2133
Bristol Ridge's cache setup is more like the old Core 2 Quad. The Q6600 had 2x4MB of L2 and no L3, for example.Core has had 256KB L2 since Nehalem. Just thought I'd point that out. Carrizo/BR's L2 cache performance is actually quite good. Its the lack of an L3 cache that's holding it back, not the size of the L2.
That was one of the nice things about the C2Q's, especially Yorkfield (2x6MB), a massive L2 cache (for the time). It also masked the memory latency very well.Bristol Ridge's cache setup is more like the old Core 2 Quad. The Q6600 had 2x4MB of L2 and no L3, for example.
The ProBook 455 G4 is the only model to feature a processor made by AMD, being powered by a 7th generation APU with Radeon R4 or Radeon R6 graphics (three processor choices available). HP promises up to 16 hours of autonomy for these new machines

If the corean site has at least his CPUZ shot right then it should be anything in the 1.5-1.55V range.1.6v on air ??
It's about what we expected though. BR is just Carrizo with some minor tweaks.2 x 1MB L2?? this is getting worse and worse
The reason to do it is to save money. They didn't want to do any kind of redesign on an XV-based core when all their eggs are in the Zen basket. AMD still has limited resources. It was easiest for them to take the work they had done on Carrizo and drag-drop it into Bristol Ridge to serve as a stopgap until they can launch Raven Ridge. There's no way a 2x2Mb l2 cache would cause Bristol Ridge to cannibalize Summit Ridge sales.The only reason I can see them doing that is so as not to cannibalize Zen sales.
Don't expect DDR4 speeds above 2400 MHz out of BR unless bclk OC is easy and convenient on AM4.Wait to see more about different DRAM config comparison in game, since DDR4 could vary from 2133 to 3600Mhz......
I would like to know more about that setup. Like his memory speed/timings and some other things. Looks pretty good, though. For anything that doesn't need the extra l2, that 4.8 GHz BR ought to smash Kaveri.
Well most of the gaming comparisons weren't "normalized" to the same mhz.Carrizo/Bristol Ridge have significantly faster L2, and in a majority of non-gaming benchmarks, the XV-based CPUs whip the SR-based CPUs soundly. In a fair number of games, the opposite is true.
