    CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA Apple today announced M2, beginning the next generation of Apple silicon designed specifically for the Mac. Built using second-generation 5-nanometer technology, M2 takes the industry-leading performance per watt of M1 even further with an 18 percent faster CPU, a 35 percent more powerful GPU, and a 40 percent faster Neural Engine.1 It also delivers 50 percent more memory bandwidth compared to M1, and up to 24GB of fast unified memory. M2 brings all of this — plus new custom technologies and greater efficiency — to the completely redesigned MacBook Air and updated 13-inch MacBook Pro. 

    The new M2 chip.

    Apple’s Next-Generation Custom Technologies

    M2 brings Apple’s latest custom technologies to the Mac, enabling new capabilities, better security, and more:
    • The Neural Engine can process up to 15.8 trillion operations per second — over 40 percent more than M1.
    • The media engine includes a higher-bandwidth video decoder, supporting 8K H.264 and HEVC video.
    • Apple’s powerful ProRes video engine enables playback of multiple streams of both 4K and 8K video.
    • Apple’s latest Secure Enclave provides best-in-class security.
    • A new image signal processor (ISP) delivers better image noise reduction.

  2. In its financial analysts briefing today, AMD shared its GPU roadmap along with some additional details on its upcoming RDNA 3 architecture.


    • AMD says RDNA 3 is projected to provide more than a 50% uplift in performance per watt.
    • It will use 5nm process technology (almost certainly TSMC N5 or N5P).
    • It will also support "advanced multimedia capabilities," including AV1 encode/decode support.
    • AMD said RDNA 3 includes DisplayPort 2.0 connectivity, which was already rumored.
    • The architecture consists of a reworked compute unit (CU), the main building block for AMD's RDNA GPUs, and we've heard quite a few rumors about this.
    • AMD also promises a next-generation Infinity Cache
    • AMD says it will use advanced packaging technologies combined with a chiplet architecture.

    What are peoples thoughts on the Ryzen 5 series of CPUs? Do you think they are any good or do you think there is better out on the market? I know they're not top of the line anymore but I think they run pretty well.

    I use a 5 series and haven't had any problems. They do tend to run hot but if you're doing something like gaming then that is to be expected I guess.

    What cooling you running on that?

  4. I am working on the dark theme for the site. Not sure I am going to stay with the one I installed. The light theme is just the default IPB theme. I may dump that as well for something else.

    ASUS is bringing five new series of motherboards to exponentially raise performance of upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000-series processors.
    Check the link often to learn more about each new series as they're unveiled!

    I will get more on this later today.




    AMD today unveiled its next-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop processors, based on the Socket AM5 desktop platform. The new Ryzen 7000 series processors introduce the new "Zen 4" microarchitecture, with the company claiming a 15% single-threaded uplift over "Zen 3" (16-core/32-thread Zen 4 processor prototype compared to a Ryzen 9 5950X). Other key specs about the architecture put out by AMD include a doubling in per-core L2 cache to 1 MB, up from 512 KB on all older versions of "Zen." The Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will boost to frequencies above 5.5 GHz. Based on the way AMD has worded their claims, it seems that the "+15%" number includes IPC gains, plus gains from higher clocks, plus what the DDR4 to DDR5 transition achieves. With Zen 4, AMD is introducing a new instruction set for AI compute acceleration. The transition to the LGA1718 Socket AM5 allows AMD to use next-generation I/O, including DDR5 memory, and PCI-Express Gen 5, both for the graphics card, and the M.2 NVMe slot attached to the CPU socket.
