#1066

Compare these 2700U test results.

Particularly contrast those with how the Android numbers are:
Something is really broken with Geekbench…

And the 2500U results:

#1068

How about:

If you are lucky, you get much more than what you expected, if you are not, you got exactly what you paid for.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯


#1069

This reminds me of the old Phenom 2 days, when people bought the triple core (remember those?) Phenom II 720? Some people bought it, because they wanted to unlock the 4-th core…
Aaaand then they had to use the triple core 720 instead of the quad core 920 or 940 or whatever it was…
Not to mention some people bought dual core phenoms for the same exact reason and was left with dual cores…


#1070

When i upgraded my actual dual core Athlon II I bought a Phenom II X2 and unlocked it. Worked fine up to 3.6GHz.


#1071

#1072

Nice! A new 8 core instead of my 1600x would be nice.


#1073

Anyone else hoping for some IMC improvements/refinement? Otherwise I’m pretty happy with performance on my 1700X and probably won’t bother upgrading.


#1074

Ryzen2 seems to be coming in April.

Official AMD press release:

And a short video.


#1075

AMD have also price dropped Ryzen right after I got one, the bastards…


Also the APUs have been announced but they are only 4 cores… Why no 6 core 95W nobody knows. 4 core 65W it is…


#1076

because they can’t fit 6c on 1 die yet, and 1 die is reserved for ‘vega’. Do note that the APUs are faster and ~same price as the 1200/1400 MSRP.


#1077

I do believe there is some space in there for some vega stuff…
But yeah, I see your point…


#1078

amd gets hit with trivial bug.

i am not clear on whether the TPM is onboard or a separate chip.

edit
note :
trivial to exploit if you have physical access. not a trivial (meaning low priority) bug.


#1079

It requires physical access to exploit apparently. And by that point you already have something seriously wrong.


#1080

Nice timing to take advantage of the bad Intel situation. But then they cynic in me wonders if there getting rid of these 1gen Ryzens for updated models with less PSP issues. I would at this point wait for a refresh before buying another CPU.


#1081

Correct. The RCE title used is not the most accurate.
It’s technically an RCE from the point of view that’s it done from outside of the PSP, but that still means physical access to the system itself in this case.

As for timing. It’s purely coincidence. 90 day release window from time of reporting the issue.


#1082

Is there an easy list anywhere of AMD CPU or APU’s that have PSP hardware installed out of interest.


#1083

Family 16h and 17h. It’s that easy.


#1084

Thanks. Would kernal patches or firmware mitigate or reduce PSP exploits ?


#1085

Doesn’t involve the kernel at all actually.
