Ryzen uses an adaptive algorithm for prefetch and speculative execution, so it tends to get slightly faster after doing something a couple times.A shot in the dark, but doesn't cache play a role in this?
Here's a "CPUmark99 scores" thread from 1998:
Interesting comparing them to today's single-thread overclocked scores.
This is a single threaded benchmark, so only IPC and clockspeed matters, both of which have been increasing rather slowly in the past decade.I want!
That said, since this thread began 7 years ago, only a ~50% increase over 7 years really sucks! Granted, of course, there are other worthwhile measures and benchmarks to cpu progress, but d@mn.
Got 622 on my i7 6700HQ (Max Turbo 3.5GHz). IE, with multiple tabs running in the background.This is a single threaded benchmark, so only IPC and clockspeed matters, both of which have been increasing rather slowly in the past decade.
FWIW, just downloaded it myself and got 569 on my i5 7300HQ (3.5GHz max turbo)
Hmmm. I get your drift, haha. As long as soldering is not involved, I'd go the extra mile to break a few records on HWBOT hehe. My laptop (Y700 UHD Touch-15ISK has an Insyde H20 bios. Early in the year, I dumped my bios and took a slew of tools (mostly UEFI variable editing tools) to it, but came up short.Easiest way is to to get the 6820HK, at least you don't have to pay over USD1000 for an unlocked mobile as was the case with Haswell.
I would think something similar could be done to the way non-k Skylake DT CPU's were overclocked with bclk but you'd probably want to set DRAM manually and deal with the loss of AVX, DTS and PM. Might want to leave the battery disconnected.
I'd give it a go myself but am still stuck with Haswell and the way things are progressing with CPU's it's probably going to stay that way for some time. As much as I'd like to play with the newer tech I cannot really justify it.
