    Yeah, but the AMD Radeon Division is rumored to have the AMD CPU Division working closely with them to share the Infinity Fabric and other AMD CPU division technologies in the design of new AMD Radeon Division GPU's!

    No more Intel!, Intel gets Raja Koduri, and that's it! :p

    That was a "Piece of Cake".
    Take a look at this.
    And the temps!!!
    Around 90C all time when detecting!
    Touching 100C when training a new model!!!
    But i get a real-time neural network on a Zephyrus with 25FPS!!!!!!!!:cool:
    This one was hard: (Don't be scared of the horrors you are about to see...I'm nicer than it looks) :)

    :(

    This reminds me of a parable. The CEO of Nvidia left AMD to cofound his company with two Sun engineers. In the mid 2000s, AMD approached Nvidia for merger talks. Nvidia's CEO was willing, but wanted to retain overall CEO position. Whomever in charge at AMD at the time really didn't want to lose power. That AMD CEO is only known for taking over a very successful AMD (after running Motorola's chip division into the ground), then acquiring ATi before running AMD and ATi into dire straits while selling the farm to keep what remained afloat. With hindsight. we're very lucky AMD is still around and Nvidia's CEO was right to not want him.

    Maybe that Moto/AMD CEO was actually a very talented engineer and CEO, but it doesn't seem like that from 2018.

    He used to be an engineer at AMD.

    https://nvidianews.nvidia.com/bios/jensen-huang

    To say he probably still liked AMD back in 2003-04 is within the realm of reason. AMD didn't make anything that competed with Nvidia back then, and Nvidia made chipsets for AMD, too. AMD's failure to swallow Nvidia would eventually cause a rash decision to buy ATi (whom was more aligned with Intel, at the time).

    Heck, it recently came out that Nvidia's CEO and AMD's current CEO are related, lol (cousins once-removed, in the correct sense).

    https://babeltechreviews.com/nvidias-ceo-is-the-uncle-of-amds-ceo/


    EDIT: and some may note, why didn't AMD hostile takeover Nvidia if Nvidia is who they wanted? Nvidia apparently had a pretty decent protection clause (poison pill) from MSFT, stemming from Nvidia's high licensing fee for the OG Xbox.

    (page 19, the above is Nvidia's annual report legally filed to the SEC for fiscal year ending on Jan 28th, 2018
    http://investor.nvidia.com/financial-info/sec-filings/default.aspx )

    Amusingly, the next company to approach Nvidia at the last minute for a GPU (Sony) also paid through the nose for last gen tech (PS3). Sony did not get to negotiate a good contract on that one.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 11/20 Turing GPUs To Support Real-Time Ray Tracing And HDMI 2.1
    "In addition, rumor has it NVIDIA's batch of GPUs for consumers will feature a new iteration of its GPU Boost algorithm, or a brand new GPU clock mechanism, to enable clockspeeds that are higher than today's cards. Also look for Turing cards to sport GDDR6 memory chips, also with higher clocks."

    @Mr. Fox@Prema I expect you two looking forward to the brand new GPU clock mechanism. Higher boost than ever:D

    Perhaps more overclocking problems with this new GPU boost feature?! Maybe even less headroom for overclocking. Might not be bad for general consumers, as perhaps they're getting more performance from their silicon, but maybe it won't leave as much headroom for overclocking enthusiasts - a bit like AMD Ryzen CPUs for instance.

    Maybe this brand new GPU clock mechanism works ok on massive water cooled rigs who can keep the graphics within cold temp, but will suck on Notebooks with ****y cooling. More like Intel's new Mobile i9 BGA feature Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB)
