After I could finally put the Workstation Graphics Card Charts 2020 online with far more than 200 hours of pure testing time, I now have to work on the rest, which, I honestly admit, I always put off a bit. Because the boundaries between what you can consider a classic workstation scenario and what [...]
Workstation & Creator
Update from 26.05.2020 I have added eight current consumer graphics cards to the range of tested cards, which should also be well suited for the creation sector. In addition, the power consumption was added and renewed measurements of older cards with the current equipment were added. In addition [...]
But I live in the here and now and there it has become (as so often) a bit tight with time, but of course something will be finished. Actually, there was a little bit more planned, but there was the sampling god and a more complex motherboard conversion planned, which almost cost me an extra day [...]
After the launch of the current Navi-Consumer and Workstation graphics cards, the Radeon VII has long been quiet in the Radeon VII, but now the Radeon Pro VII is a new edition for the professional sector. It is aimed primarily at broadcast and technology professionals and targets demanding [...]
NVIDIA joins the shareholders of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and sees the engagement as another step in the long-standing successful collaboration between NVIDIA and DFKI in the field of machine learning and deep learning. Ian Buck, Vice President and General [...]
I have already tried to explain the rough course of a development with an article. I also touched the circuit diagram and the PCB layout very superficially. Afterwards, Igor had addressed several details in the article "Why the performance increase of Nvidia's Ampere could be quite [...]
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 [...]
Who measures a lot measures crap. This rule applies as long as one does not actively deal with the circumstances and requirements and is not prepared to invest a lot – mostly private – time in its exploration. I started working more intensively on the power consumption of graphics cards [...]
Distributed network attacks are often performed as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, which almost always use bot networks, i.e. "zombie PCs" of careless users taken over by malware. This makes a lot of things more difficult, as it is often no longer possible to make a [...]
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 [...]
Industry analysts Newzoo expect the video game industry to generate sales of 149 billion dollars in 2019, a figure that compares with cinema and video revenue. Streaming, which IbisWorld has reported at 103 billion dollars, impresses.
FOR the first time, KIOXIA is accepting a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD into its product portfolio. The PCI Express 4.0 standard doubles the performance of client, server, and storage systems, increases speed to up to 16.0 GT/s (gigatransfers per second per lane), and helps cloud and enterprise applications [...]
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 [...]
AMD expands EPYC 2 portfolio with two new CPUs: The 7662 and 7532 models are installed in selected DELL and Supermicro servers. With the market launch, AMD is also celebrating a milestone in processor history, as the new 64-core offers particularly high performance at a comparatively low price with [...]
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 [...]
