    That very last headline is Muensterous.

      It looks more like a space ravioli.

    [quote<]CPU bottleneck? GeForce GTX 1080 Ti tested on AMD Ryzen versus Intel Kaby Lake @ Legit Reviews[/quote<] A very interesting article that shows even 1440p gaming is certainly affected by the CPU. The addendum at the end of the article pointing out how even the 7700K is often not running at 100% utilization also shows that there's no magical fix that will "turn on" some latent performance boost in RyZen.

      Maybe this is why AMD pushed ahead the Ryzen launch to March 2. Get it out the door (and reviews up) before exposing a hole in their logic with high-res gaming being graphics-card-bound.

      I found it interesting that he only overclocked the AMD chip. And the stock 7700K was still way out ahead lol.

        • chuckula
        • 3 years ago

        Yeah, people should remember that at all 8 cores 4GHz, that Rx 1700 is ahead of a stock-clocked 1800X.

          I discovered last week how much fun it is to watch 16 threads bounce around in Task Manager.

          I wonder if VMWare will one day be aware of its surroundings enough to give a single CCX to a VM if I choose to give a VM 8 threads.

            • chuckula

            Lookup core pinning [AKA “cpu affinity”] and see if it’s possible to use with your software.
            It’s actually considered a degenerate throwback to the old days, but it might be helpful in some circumstances.

            It looks like if your VMs are very busy, it could be worth doing for Ryzen. My testing isn’t a VM workload or anything, but I think I’ve established that all other things being equal, there is a penalty for going across CCXes, either because a thread gets bounced around or because the application gets spread around.

            Funny, I discovered last week that having with 32 cores and 64 threads, the DNS Server service won’t start on a Server 2008 R2 server! (thankfully there’s a hotfix).

            Viewing 64 threads in task manager requires a “zoom” button.

            As to giving a VM 8 threads… I’d be VERY curious to see performance tests with multiple VM’s running on a Ryzen chip…

        are you purposely ignoring how high clocked the 7700 is? how 6700 performs the same when overclocked to 7700 ‘stock’?

      • synthtel2

      There are plenty of reasons to doubt that any performance gains in the coming months will be relevant, but that isn’t one of them. There are definitely ways to mess up when juggling only three threads, there are probably more than that in play in that example, and that’s a low-utilization example by modern standards.

      It’s actually pretty obvious, once GPUs get fast enough, the bottleneck will shift back to the CPU. It’s hardly surprising. 4K is GPU bound today, won’t be by 2020.
