  • Gigabyte publishes R9 3950X overclocking guide and benchmarks

    TL;DR
    • Gigabyte achieved a 4.3GHz all core OC 1 hour P95 stable @ 1.4v (4.4ghz R15 stable)
      • This suggests that those juicy 3800X dies are in fact being set aside for the 3950X... or Gigabyte was using a well binned chip.
    • They cooled this using an EK "EK-KIT" P360 and maxed out around 100c.
      • The EK-KIT is basically a custom CPU only 360mm loop.
      • The Tom's article somehow interprets this as "the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X is as easy to cool as an 8-core part." somehow. It's still a very hot chip.
    • The 3950X scored 3932 stock CB R15, 4384 points at 4.3GHz w/ XMP, and 4475 at 4.4GHz
      • Fast scores, but a short benchmark that favors AMD. Still, these scores are in the ballpark of the 2990WX and 7980XE (and refreshes).

     




    Personally I'm curious as to if this is NDA'd, Tom's historically isn't the kind of place to break NDA. Motherboard manufactures like to leak things but not usually like this. I'm also a bit skeptical about this information being posted without third party reviews. Although it was much different, I'm reminded of the AMD PBO video that alluded to 4.75GHz core speeds. This is obviously much more direct, but I wonder if it was intentional. To grab attention away from Intel's two stage paper launch of the HDET price cut chips perhaps?


    November here we come.

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      Quote





      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.

      The admission comes following rumors that the company had been breached. It first emerged that NordVPN had an expired internal private key exposed, potentially allowing anyone to spin out their own servers imitating NordVPN.
