Leo Says 33: Leo Buys an iPAD PRO !?!?, AMD Rumors, TITAN RTX, Samsung QVO, Nvidia 20-series for laptop

Leo took a brief intermission from Leo Says series last week to review the Intel Core i9-9980XE. Today the show returns, with Leo diving into the recent Ryzen 3000 series rumours, Apple’s new iPad Pro, Samsung’s new QVO high-capacity SSD range, TITAN RTX and more.

LEOS Notes:
I didn’t do a Leo Says last week but instead reviewed Intel Core i9-9980XE which effectively became a Leo Says about Intel’s use of monolithic processor dies.
Readers comments about Intel 10nm versus TSMC 7nm and Intel 14nm versus Glo Flo 14nm. All processes are not created equally, however AMD has changed its design approach by using chiplets rather than a monolithic die

Newsflash – Intel is talking about 3D stacking of logic chips

What does HEDT mean these days?

Rumours about AMD Ryzen 2/Ryzen 3000 to be announced at CES and then launched in Q1 with a killer Ryzen in May for AMD’s 50th birthday.
The rumours are tempting but sound too good to be true.

Ryzen 3, 6C/12T, 4GHz Boost, US$100
IOX plus one chiplet plus dummy or Navi graphics for APU
Ryzen 5, 8C/16T, 4.8GHz Boost, US$200
or an 8C/16T APU boosting to 4GHz
Ryzen 7, 12C/24T, 5GHz Boost, US$300
Ryzen 9, 16C/32T, 5GHz Boost, US$500

Apple iPad Pro and the A12X chip is remarkable
Samsung 860 QVO 1TB, 2TB and 4TB Quad Level Cell SSDs.
Pentagon JEDI (Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure) Cloud Computing project.
Amazon Web Services is bidding however the BBC reports that AWS is connected with C5 Group which in turn is linked with a Russian named Viktor Vekselberg. AWS says that C5 is not connected to JEDI
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-46489689
Clearly the BBC is suggesting the Russians would potentially be hooked into JEDI which seems like such an obvious question that either the US Military is stupid or the BBC is over-egging the story.

Nvidia has launched Titan RTX priced at £2,399 with 4,608 CUDA cores, 576 Tensor cores and 24GB GDDR6 memory.
Titan V costs £2,800 and has 5,120 CUDA cores, 640 Tensor cores and 12GB HBM2 memory.
Nvidia Press conference scheduled for the start of CES. Surely this is mobile 20-series graphics.
