Releasing new colour designs is irrelevant when it comes to available volume. The limiting factor isn't cooler shrouds, there will be just as much silicon on store shelves as without an extra design.

I hope they break the cycle of hardcore memory overclockers buying prebuilts for Renoir's memory controller and actually sell these.

Yes, those are great for throughput - but do nothing for single fetch latency. I'm mostly concerned about desktop & gaming performance, which traditionally scale best with latency. It'll be...

There's no indication that it'll outperform DDR4 latency wise. Throughput and capacity, sure.

Not as bad as you might think, since a functional GPU isn't required for successful booting and if the process fails you can retry, as long as you don't reboot. You can also back up the current vbios...

If history is going to repeat itself, it's going to take a while for DDR5 to catch up in de facto latency, despite higher clocks.
But yeah not planning to actually buy these since I got another...

There seems to be plenty available in Finland currently, at MSRP. Which is a strange sight nowadays.
But seeing how Intel has their own fabs, not entirely unexpected.


Thanks for the reviews!...

Well, 11600K looks fairly solid for gaming, if power efficiency isn't important. Looks to be as far as the architecture scales reasonably, more cores is pretty awkward thermals wise.


In fact...

I wonder what the voltage response will be, many DDR4 kits suffer regression from too high voltages.

I mean, the list of people they call, not the spoofed number. I am aware that spoofing is trivial.

Right off the bat, I wouldn't worry about CPU deaths, at all. Unless you're running really high voltage, pretty much any other component is more prone to failure.

I don't see how we'd reach 1TB usage in consumer space ever, VRAM usage will likely keep climbing, but not to such levels. In server space, sure, we're already there. Disk caches, databases ran in...

It's somewhat irritating when a work phone which I'm obligated to answer is also within Indian scammers' scope... And they're spoofing numbers so they look legit as well.

Depends on what that brushed aluminium look-a-like surface is made of. Plastic replicas of it tend to look fairly awful in person, and same goes for some junk grades of metal.

I don't think Meteor is an ideal branding when their market share has come crashing down in consumer space.

Well if the device is DLSS capable, developers can dictate how to use the tech for their use case. Maybe more aggressive presets could be enabled on demand as a battery life extender.
