Leo's notes for this episode:
Briony met Bit Wit Kyle and Steve from Gamers Nexus. CES is a huge show, spread across LVCC and a bunch of hotels.
Nvidia announcements included Nvidia RTX 2060 for desktops with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. Nvidia RTX 2080, 2070 and 2060 for laptops, each with the same number of CUDA cores as the desktop chip. Expect Max-Q rather than Max-P. My big question is whether this makes mobile 4K gaming a practical proposition or are we going to focus on 1440p with higher frame rates. DLSS has been confusing.
Intel spoke about plenty of interesting products but showed very little. Still no sign of the 28-core Xeon W-3175X that is now rumoured to be USD$8,000.
AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen demonstrated beating Core i9-9900K. The CPU was shown with a 14nm IOX and a single 7nm chiplet along with a blatant space on the package where a second chiplet could be installed. This 8 core/16 thread part seems to be a Ryzen 5, with scope for 12-core Ryzen 7 and 16-core Ryzen 9 CPUs before Computex. AMD EPYC Rome due mid-2019 with 64-cores/128-threads.
Intel Project Athena follows Ultrabook. no info given. Lakefield uses big.LITTLE CPUs (to borrow ARM’s name) with Foveros to combine Core with Atom
X570 chipset and PCIe 4.0 also coming
AMD Navi has yet to break cover. AMD Radeon VII is due on 7th February with a price of US$699. This is a 7nm Vega with HBM memory that is batting against the GTX 1080Ti/RTX 2080. Anything that puts pressure on Nvidia’s prices is welcome.
