AMD Threadripper 3990X : World’s First 64-Core HEDT CPU!

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X – the world’s first 64-core, 128-thread HEDT processor is finally here!

Here are the full details on this crazy 64-core HEDT processor – the official tech briefing, the official promo video, specifications, price and more!

 

The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processor Family

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is the world’s first 64-core HEDT processor, headlining the 3rd Gen Threadripper family, which now looks like this :

  • Ryzen Threadripper 3990X : 64C / 128T, 2.9GHz / 4.3GHz, 288 MB cache
  • Ryzen Threadripper 3970X : 32C / 64T, 3.7GHz / 4.5GHz, 144 MB cache
  • Ryzen Threadripper 3960X : 24C / 48T, 3.8GHz / 4.5GHz, 140 MB cache

Like the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor is based on the new Zen 2 architecture with the chiplet design approach.

The CPU dies are fabricated on the 7 nm process technology, while the I/O die is fabricated on the 12 nm process technology.

Recommended : 3rd Gen AMD Threadripper : Everything You Need To Know!

 

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X : World’s First 64-Core HEDT CPU!

There is no better person to tell you how awesome it is to have 64-cores of processing power in the new Ryzen Threadripper 3990X than Robert Hallock, AMD Senior Technical Marketing Manager.

 

New Socket sTRX4 + AMD TRX40 Chipset

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X requires a AMD TRX40 motherboard with a new sTRX4 processor socket. However, you will still be able to use existing Threadripper coolers.

The processor comes with 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes, of which 56 are available for use. The AMD TRX40 chipset adds another 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes, with 16 free lanes.

In total, the new Socket sTRX4 and TRX40 chipset will give you 72 free PCIe 4.0 lanes to use, compared to just 56 free PCIe 3.0 lanes in previous generations.

In addition, the new AMD TRX40 chipset communicates with the 3rd Gen Threadripper using a PCIe 4.0 x8 link. This gives it 4X more bandwidth than the PCIe 3.0 x4 link used in the first two generations.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X Performance

In this video, Robert shows how the new 64-core Threadripper 3990X and even the 32-core Threadripper 3970X handily beat the Intel Xeon W-3275 processor – their best single-chip processor.

 

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X Price + Availability

The 64-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is priced at a princely RM16,999 / S$5,988 / US$3,990, which is almost double that of the Threadripper 3970X!

You can grab one from AMD or their retail partners starting from 7 February 2020 onwards, and start making your own Terminator : Dark Fate movie! 😀

FREE Dell Mobile Connect for iOS Coming Soon!

Apple fans will soon be able to download the iOS version of Dell Mobile Connect for FREE!

This will give Apple users the same capabilities that Android users have enjoyed since 2018!

 

FREE Dell Mobile Connect for iOS Coming Soon!

Dell Mobile Connect was introduced in CES 2018 for Android devices, giving them the ability to make calls, send texts, get notifications and even mirror their displays on their Dell laptops and PCs!

Since it was released two years ago, Dell reported that over a million Mobile Connect users have sent or received over 150 MILLION phone calls and texts sing their free app.

Stay Focused

Dell Mobile Connect allows you to avoid splitting your attention between your PC and smartphone. You will be notified about phone calls, texts, instant messages and other app notifications right on your PC.

You can then decide to respond, or ignore. You can also decide which apps you would like to receive notifications from.

Stay Connected

You will never miss a single call or notification from SMS, WhatsApp, Uber, PayPal, Instagram, and other mobile apps.

Your larger PC keyboard, display and speakers will also allow for more enjoyable communications via text or calls.

Bring Your Mobile Apps To The Big Screen!

Dell Mobile Connect lets you have direct access to your mobile apps through its advanced mirroring feature.

You can directly view and access your mobile apps on your PC display, and control them with your keyboard, mouse and touch display!

Secure Wireless Connectivity

Dell Mobile Connect uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct technologies to keep your PC connected to your phone, so feel free to leave your phone in your bag or pocket!

The wireless connection is also secured and does not go through the Internet. All your phone’s data can only be accessed by the paired PC, and only when you are in wireless range.

 

Dell Mobile Connect for iOS Availability

It has taken Dell two years to do this, but finally, the iOS version of Mobile Connect is coming in March 2020!

  • Starting mid-March 2020, it will be available to download for free from the Microsoft Store.
  • Starting end-March 2020, it will come pre-installed in all Dell consumer PC systems.

Dell Mobile Connect, and all updates, are available for free on all Dell consumer PC systems that run on Windows 10 – XPS, Inspiron, Vostro and Alienware – as long as they come equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, and were purchased after January 2018.

Alienware Second Screen Concept : First Look!

Alienware demonstrated their Second Screen concept at CES 2020, as a showcase of what they are dreaming up for the future of PC gaming.

What is the Alienware Second Screen, and how useful can it be? Check it out and tell us what you think!

 

Alienware Second Screen Concept : First Look!

Alienware Second Screen is not a product or device, but a smartphone app. It is designed to offer you the ability to monitor your gaming laptop or PC using your smartphone as the “second screen”.

Competitive gamers who want the very best from their systems need to keep track on performance stats, just like how runners keep track of their heart rates, and race car drivers keep track of their RPM and oil temperature.

These are available through a separate PC application, which requires a switch to check stats. Even if it offers overlays with live data, that takes up space on the display and detracts from the game.

The Alienware Second Screen app would let you monitor those stats directly on your smartphone.

The Alienware Second Screen concept app currently supports :

  • Speed monitoring for CPU, GPU and RAM
  • Temperature monitoring for CPU and GPU

The team plans to add these features in the future :

  • Lighting controls
  • Overclocking, thermals, and other quick performance settings
  • Frames per second monitoring
  • In-game integrations (e.g. team kill count, maps, inventory)

 

Alienware Second Screen Concept : Price + Availability

The Alienware and Dell gaming teams are still working on the Second Screen app, so there is no word on both price and availability. Yes, it’s possible that Second Screen won’t be a free app.

That may be surprising because when it’s launched, Alienware Second Screen will support only Alienware and Dell G-Series gaming laptops and desktop PCs.

So tell us what you think about the Alienware Second Screen concept! Useful or meh?

2020 Samsung QLED 8K Q950 TV : First Look!

At CES 2020, Samsung peeled away the covers, and unveiled the 2020 Samsung QLED 8K Q950 TV!

Let’s find out what’s new in Samsung’s next-generation QLED 8K TV!

 

2020 Samsung QLED 8K Q950 TV

The 2020 Samsung QLED 8K Q950 TV is the first television in the world to feature surround sound audio, an incredible 8K resolution, and an ultra-thin form factor.

Ultra-Thin Design

Samsung almost entirely eliminated the bezels around the Q950’s display, creating an incredible screen-to- body ratio of nearly 99 percent.

When viewed from ten to fifteen feet (3 to 5 meters) away, you will experience what Samsung calls the Infinity Screen effect – where the bezels seem to disappear!

The Q950 is also extremely thin – only 15 millimetres across the entire display. You can lay it flush against the wall, or mount it on a media stand.

Certified 8K Resolution

The 2020 Samsung QLED 8K Q950 TV is certified to meet the requirements of both the 8K Association’s Certified Test Specifications, as well as the CTA 8K Ultra HD Display Definition.

It will be able to playback native 8K content, letting consumers stream AV1 codec videos filmed in 8K. But for lower resolution content, the Q950’s Quantum Processor 8K has improved AI upscaling capabilities that uses machine learning to create 8K images from lower resolution sources.

Optimal Picture Quality

The Q950’s Adaptive Picture feature uses light sensors and AI to analyse the ambient light and distribution of light in a particular scene, so it can ensure that the TV can maintain a clear picture with great contrast even in bright rooms, or with glare from a light source.

Because a significant amount of content we consume these days are through streaming on the Internet, it comes with AI ScaleNet that compresses content as it leaves the content provider, restoring it on reaching the TV. This effectively cuts down by half the bandwidth required for any streaming content.

Of course, AI ScaleNet requires the content provider to support such a feature. Samsung is currently working with Amazon on this feature, with plans to use it for Prime Video content, from standard definition to 4K.

NEXTGEN TV Ready!

The Q950 will come with a built-in ATSC 3.0 tuner, making it NEXTGEN TV ready! It will be ready to receive and display 4K content once NEXTGEN TV networks come online later this year!

Immersive Audio Experience

As Samsung’s flagship QLED 8K TV, the Q950 comes with the best audio solution Samsung engineers can come up with.

It has speakers on every side of the display, with subwoofers in the back, delivering 5.1 channel surround sound. But its immersive audio experience goes beyond the hardware.

The Q950 uses Object Tracking Sound+, an AI-based technology to match the audio with the movement of objects on the screen. Its Active Voice Amplifier (AVA) technology adjusts the volume of dialogue in response to common sounds like a blender or vacuum cleaner.

Finally, the Q950 can use its built-in speakers as an additional audio channel, when paired with a 2020 Q Series soundbar, like the Q800. Its Q-Symphony feature will pair the audio from both devices to create a dynamic and multi-dimensional soundscape.

[adrotate group=”2″]

Connected Family Hub

The 2020 Samsung QLED 8K Q950 TV comes with access to Samsung TV Plus – their free smart TV video service, with nearly 100 channels, including CBSN, Yahoo Finance, Lively Place, Bon Appétit, VEVO, Outside TV+, etc.

It also comes with Samsung Health on TV built-in. This will let your family members see their fitness activities, track their progress, and pursue fitness goals. They will also have access to free, exclusive content from Samsung fitness partners like Calm, FitPlan, Jillian Michaels, Echelon, Obe Fitness and Barre 3.

Thanks to its 2 extra cores and ability to process 4 extra threads, the Ryzen 7 4800H significantly cuts down on the time it takes for content creators to process their work.

Now, its integrated Radeon Vega 7 Graphics is not very fast, which is why AMD did not quote any graphics performance figures. In fact, it has one less core and runs at at a slower speed than the Radeon Vega 8 Graphics in the Ryzen 7 4800U.

Instead, AMD shared with us the PHYSICS test results of the 3DMark Firestrike benchmark. It shows the Ryzen 7 4800H beating not only the Core i7-9750H mobile processor, but also the Core i7-9700K desktop processor! However, it is CPU-only benchmark.

Its gaming performance will definitely be poorer than that of the 15W Ryzen 7 4800U, which means it will likely be paired with a Radeon RX 5500M or RX 5600M, to take advantage of the new AMD SmartShift capability.

 

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Availability

One of the first laptops to feature the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H is the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14, which claims to be the world’s most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop.

AMD SmartShift Explained : Smart Power Distribution FTW!

At CES 2020, AMD announced their SmartShift technology that debuts in the Ryzen 4000 Mobile processors.

What is AMD SmartShift, and how does it work? Let’s find out!

 

AMD SmartShift : What Is It?

AMD SmartShift is a new technology that is being introduced with the new AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile processor family.

It can be simply described as a smart power distribution technique, to dynamically improve CPU or GPU performance with a limited power budget.

 

How Does AMD SmartShift Work?

In a typical laptop, the CPU and GPU each have their own pre-defined power budget.

The CPU and GPU will individually adjust their power consumption according to the load, using less power for a longer battery life, but never exceeding their power budget even when there is a need for more performance.

AMD SmartShift changes that by simply doing away with the pre-defined power budget, and using a shared power budget instead.

When you are running CPU-intensive tasks, it lets the Ryzen CPU take up more of the power budget, improving its performance.

But when you start up a game, AMD SmartShift lets the Radeon GPU take up more of the power budget, for better gaming performance.

Ultimately, SmartShift lets you squeeze out more performance from the CPU and GPU for a limited power budget.

 

The Performance Impact

According to AMD, SmartShift will deliver up to 10% better gaming performance, and up to 12% better content creation performance.

This was based on their internal tests using the AMD Ryzen 4800H mobile processor, coupled with the AMD Radeon RX 5600M GPU.

 

AMD SmartShift : How To Get It

AMD SmartShift is built into the new AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile processor family, but also requires the laptop to have a separate AMD Radeon Graphics GPU.

It also works only with the recently-launched AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition driver.
