  2. Falkentyne liked Vasudev's post in the thread Intel/AMD uCode fix for Spectre, HT bug fix and Meltdown..

    I'm using D4 ucode or skylake and it feels the CPU is getting choked for sustained workloads or benchmarks. I'll wait for Ryzen laptop...

  3. Falkentyne liked Meaker@Sager's post in the thread I bought my FIRST REAL UPGRADEABLE LAPTOP! I spent $1,100 USD. How did I do?.

    It forces a new version of .net to exclusively run which is causing fun in all sorts of applications.

    The last two group of 9900k ucodes, August 2019 and the newest ones (Microcode C6 and CA) reduced about 100 mhz worth of Cinebench R15...

  6. Falkentyne replied to the thread [Guide] How to take full control of the i7-8750H (Advanced version).

    Uncore is 'system agent voltage' aka VCCSA on desktops, but it doesn't help that at one time, people called 'uncore' the cache (ring)...

  8. Falkentyne liked jc_denton's post in the thread Rise your 2080 mobile with 200W from vbios of 51M.

    Direct die would be tricky. As a part of the heatsink has a protrusion for VRM cooling, you would need to take that into consideration...

  9. Falkentyne attached a file to the thread Clevo Overclocker's Lounge.

  10. Falkentyne replied to the thread Clevo Overclocker's Lounge.

    I bet if that CPU were used in a desktop system with a real heatsink, like a NH-D15 or Arctic Freezer II 360 (that new AIO), you would...

  11. Falkentyne liked jc_denton's post in the thread Clevo Overclocker's Lounge.

  12. Falkentyne liked jc_denton's post in the thread *** Official Clevo P870TM-R Owner's Lounge - Phoenix 5 ***.

    This is a guestimate, as I did not invest in a micrometer. The 8086k is the same die height as the 8700k, ~0.42mm My lapped 9900k is...
