    Has anyone tried these?

    Doesnt seem too expensive and I have read on OCN that the L4 cache seems to help out with minimum and average FPS. I just got the 4930mx again and am in the process of modding the heatsink to push the max speed a bit more.

    If the 4980hq is indeed better than my 4930mx then I will likely use it 24/7 but Im also interested in doing comparison test if I can get my hands on one of these.

    Anyways just curious on your guys' thoughts

    Peace

    I've had a play with the 5775CI have in a HTPC The L4 EDRAM is good for decreasing the latency on main memory. . ~35ns vs ~70ns on the same CL10 DDR3 1600 on an Ivy Bridge mobile CPU for working data between RAM size and L4 size (128Mb). It allowed the 3.3ghz 5775C to basically equal the 4ghz 6700K in gaming benchmarks. The gains will be lessened if you have 32gb of faster memory.

    Well if I had this chip I would basically forgo bandwidth overclocking in favor of tighter timings on the system ram, while keeping it at 2133mhz then see if 2400mhz is obtainable just for the epeen.

    I'll have to figure out how to order from taobao as I have never done it before, but I do intend on getting one of these chips for the ranger.

    When intel first came out with eDRAM L4 cache processors I was hoping it would be a trend that would stick and extend to PGA processors, including the desktop realm. While the eDRAM was meant for the iGPU, it substantially helped CPU tasks as well, bringing Broadwell IPC up to and sometimes exceeding Skylake IPC. Imagine if the 9900K came with an L4 cache. The gaming performance would be astounding.

    I was hoping that with Zen 2 that AMD would push for an HBM L4 cache with 8 cores instead of going for 16 cores. A 4GB HBM stack would effectively turn main memory into swap space and bring major IPC improvements.

    I'd love a socketed 6770HQ. Too bad they are not available. Maybe some day...

    My 4980HQ just shipped out from their warehouse, to my eyes everything looks good. Should arrive sometime next week.

    Any idea what package type to select?

    Will probably order when I get home from work around 3ish central time.
