After 10 workstation graphics cards tested, I prepared a whopping 64 different chart graphics and invested almost 200 hours of pure benchmark time without assemling and software configuration. Of course, various cards are still missing, especially since AMD unfortunately does not show too much zeal [...]

In the meantime, the number of corona infected people worldwide (2019-nCoV) has risen to over 100,000 cases. Across borders, work is being done at full speed to find a quick and sustainable solution. One of the research teams has now achieved several breakthroughs in which a first 3D model of the [...]
Everybody can cool with air and honestly: the adrenaline rush when you take apart and rebuild a card that costs several thousand euros is not to be despised. But the basic idea behind the whole water action is actually quite simple. How much more clocks and thus also performance can be squeezed out [...]
Apple has finally launched the Mac Pro after a far-flinimist announcement, providing some laughs, some head shakes and some creative thoughts. In addition, some wondered how to release a Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics card exclusively for the Mac and ignore the open Windows market. But creative [...]
Such a new graphics card, such as the recently introduced W5500, rarely comes without a suitable update and AMD did not disappoint us at the exclusive press web event. With 4K content on the rise, the industry is slowly preparing for 8K, and virtual reality is more in demand in business and [...]
AMD's professional division has seen stable growth in market spread over the past few months and wants to retain the market even further. An updated version of the Radeon Pro software as well as the new Radeon Pro W5500 will help.
HP Enterprise has spoken to colleagues at The Register about the current market situation and has also addressed the availability of Xeon processors based on the Cascade Lake architecture. The IT service provider gives customers who want to use such a processor in their HP system the hot tip: [...]
AMD has gained more and more market share with the Epyc CPUs over the past few years, pushing back intel. The competitor is now forced to lay off both employees and outsource the server division from the previous Data Center Group.
According to corporate circles, Intel is to produce its Xe graphics architecture, which is based on the DG2 GPU, on TSMC's 7 nm process node. While Intel has already introduced its Xe Low Power "DG1 GPU" and the Xe HPC "Ponte Vecchio GPU", only the Xe High-Performance GPU is [...]
Actually these are two articles in one, but since one needs the other as a basic requirement, I simply put water cooling modification and overclocking in a review. You can do the one and leave the other. Because even if AMD has given the Radeon Pro W5700 the power reins in terms of performance, at [...]
Back in June 2018, when the first Threadrippers were launched, there were some reports in the rumor kitchen that Intel was working on a new 22-core "Skylake-X" chip that would be positioned between the 18-core HCC (High Core-Count) chip and the 28-core XCC (Extreme Core-Count) model. The [...]
What brings, or could really bring PCI Express 4.0? Because there is not too much useful to read or see as a video about what can be really useful with graphics cards, especially not from everyday practice (outside the usual games). I tested for 5 hours with quite interesting insights. Guck command!
With the Radeon Pro W5700, Navi has finally arrived in the affordable workstation area. The Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000 has been picked out as an opponent. But is performance and driver quality enough for a class victory of the cards up to 1000 Euros? I test full versions of many standard programs [...]
Yesterday I had already put the new Radeon Pro W5700 through its paces in the launch article “AMD Radeon Pro W5700 Review – price and performance are right, but it’s enough for the Quadro RTX 4000?“, but I was still unclear where the advantage of the new test platform with [...]
With the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 introduced today, Navi has finally arrived in the affordable workstation sector. Why one uses only the smaller chip with 36 Compute Units (CU) and thus 2304 shaders instead of the full 40 CUs, probably only AMD knows. After all one can offer such a card with 150 watts [...]
I am currently sitting on the review of the Radeon Pro W5700, AMD's new workstation graphics card with the smaller Navi 10 chip, as you can also find on the radeon RX 5700 consumer version. So far, so unexcited. Nevertheless, I have considered how the possible backlog to the Quadro RTX 4000 [...]
This article is intended to give a rough overview of how an electronics development is going. Since a development as a whole is something very complicated, the article here is only to explain the process of a development in the electronics sector in a very simplified way. Anything else would [...]
After many measurement series and invested hours, the article about the power consumption of the Ryzen 9 3950X was (just) finished. The CPU, which AMD collected again this morning by courier for the rotation between the editorial staffs, was even somewhat warm, because I had to break off the tests [...]
Between all the workstation benchmarks, which are really real hour eaters every time, I thought what would happen if you let go of these bolides on Crysis from 2007. Is there finally something going on in Ultra-HD? Well, the whole thing is a little decadent, of course, but why not? DirectX10 is [...]
