    Intel "select" press event presentation...

    "and as you can see, with the 'nearest competitor' solution, tears in the fabric of space-time due to raw speed are far more common as you go up their product stack. Whereas with Intel, space-time in your datacentre remains reassuringly intact".

    Re: AMD Epyc 7763 2P (3rd Gen Milan)

    Why run the benchmarks on Ubuntu 19.04?

    That release has been out of support for about a year, and the kernel won't have the necessary support for new processor features. (The 5.0 kernel was released two years ago on 2019-03-04 and went out of official support three months later).

    AMD have been quite active sending patches to support their processors into Linux, so we should use a recent kernel so that their performance improvements can be properly showcased. I think those benchmarks should be run again using either the current Ubuntu LTS release, or better still with the latest 5.11 kernel release that will have support for the latest processor features.

    Hi,

    The plan was always to go to the latest LTS or 5.11 kernel with the release of Ice Lake Xeons next month. Stay tuned for that.

    no DDR5 support? no thanks. I mean PHONES have been using a variation of DDR5 already.

    That will be a headline feature on next-generation Genoa, if reports are to be believed.

    Which bit of the article did you not read? You can't just throw in a new ram type while maintaining compatibility. This is the 2nd thread you've gone on about AMD not having DDR5. Nor does Intel atm so what's your beef exactly? You can still buy DDR3 systems from a number of well known OEMs. DDR4 has not exhausted its lifecycle. You might as well protest you want PCIe6 now they're ratifying its spec and cat10 supporting ethernet routers. These things will come, but in time.

    The spec on LPDDR5 was published ~16 months before the spec on DDR5; they're different standards.
