    Re: AMD working with Microsoft on Threadripper 2 scheduler issues

    I wonder if there were already tickets opened and being worked on before L1Techs and Bitsums investigation and their findings brought it to light or tickets couldn't be opened until this discover?

    It's in AMDs best interest to get this fixed because then their Threadripper range has so much more value add in HEDT workspaces.

    Indeed, lol. I thought your original comment was commonsense so I was very surprised that people took issue with it.

    IIRC people didn't say AMD and MS can't or wouldn't work together to fix the issue, they said the fix is ultimately in the hands of MS and they've not been know for competence when it comes to fixing problems lately. And from reading between the lines it seems that's mostly correct as AMD have said they've got open tickets with MS and TR2 so we can probably assume those tickets have been open for at least 5-6 months.

    The point you replied to in that thread (before you go gloating gleefully), still actually stands.

    Indeed.

    The fact that AMD have support as well as update tickets open with Microsoft does indicate that Microsoft have known about this issue for some time.

    Um... but they are working together and is something some others were quite adamant wouldn't be happening, it might be slower than some would like but it's still happening.

    There is no mention of how long MS/AMD have been working on it so you can try and imply it's been with them for a long time but the fact is we don't know either way.

    Re: AMD working with Microsoft on Threadripper 2 scheduler issues

    So I've re-read that entire thread and i can't find any post that says MS wouldn't fix it, perhaps i missed it to a citation or link to the post that says so would be helpful, there's plenty of posts that question if fixing this would be a priority, if they'd bother fixing it, and questioning the time involved but i couldn't find any saying it wouldn't be fixed.

    You rightly say we don't know for sure how long it's been with MS but we can make a reasonably educated estimate, for instance we probably know it's been with them since at least October, that being when Ian Cutress from Anandtech first went public with the testing he'd been doing with Wendell combined with AMD saying the worked on the development of Coreprio and only mention TR2 in their statement.
