If true, i will say hello... Now let's be cautious...Lets guess FO4bjt2 comes and say hello...
I expect that it would draw too much power at those clocks to be sensible to use when running a single thread. However, this is very promising for the single-core turbo when running poorly threading software.http://library.madeinpresse.fr/samples/MPqY2Vg2I71P-f
The binary along the top of the image on the last page translates to "ZenOC@Air=5G".
Well, anyone around here with the printed magazine? It's an easy check on that page for the binary string.Hey, hype train goers, don't you find it a tad bit weird that the "source" only goes until that page, and the "message" destroys entire layout of the last page? I'll let you figure out the rest.
Excavator 65W can overclock at 4.9 GHz on air on the 28nm BULK and HDL library.I don't see it happening. Not without power jumping through the roof, or more likely I think, with cores disabled.
That's my question too, because the imgur album was posted by someone who certainly listed through magazine at least once. Not to notice a layout of entire page being so viciously destroyed? I don't buy that just yet.Well, anyone around here with the printed magazine? It's an easy check on that page for the binary string.
Many users, especially more mainstream gamers who are aware of this but aren't tech savvy to know the details believe that zen is a chip for the masses. It's still not been made abundantly clear that this is not a consumer chip going up against the 4 core 8 thread cpus Intel has. As a result go over to neogaf, most users there think this will be super cheap with 8 core 16 thread chips around 400 and other options around 200-300. Not great for amd when users already believe your highend chips are budget gaming chips and not server alternatives.Yea, lost in all this enthusiasm, is the fact that 8 core Zen with no IGP is only going to compete in a very small portion of the consumer market. So I dont really see much threat to the mainstream cpu market until Zen APUs come out in around a year or so. Like I said earlier in this thread, the major threat right now will be to the 6900k, which is clearly overpriced, and maybe to the 6700k and 6800k, depending on pricing and final performance, including overclocking.
Me too. I think that there will be zen quad core models for consumers to run at 4.35GHz max @95W (which i think it never reaches, more like 70 to 80 watt). My hunches now tell me i need to eat...8 core Zen is not going to rock 5Ghz "on air" @ ~BW IPC ... I am trusting *that* when/if I see it 3 months from now.
Wait. 6700k is like a $330 processor right now. Why would AMD have to charge $200 to get you to buy theirs? Does that even make any sense?Meh, both camps can price their HEDT to the moon for all I care. Mainstream Zen has to go really low to get me remotely interested, something like a 6600K/6700K equivalent for ~$100/200, and I'm saying that even if I'm still using my 6 year old OC 2500K. This is not remotely close to a C2D moment where 3GHz Conroe slaughtered everything prior in every single app back in 2006.
So why would they bother to encode that in binary, when they could have published all the screenshots instead?It's true. It's in the printed magazine.
