So... Enough data to churn the forums but not anymore tangible details. But I figured it was post worthy.

I would have died from excitement if I was there. Did you get to probe them at all about the whole HPC thing and using multiple APUs on a single board with fast interconects between the two?

This is just good news to me. I saw 65w limit for Carrizo and I have been concerned if it meant AMD was going to abandon the high end market or if they were going to release something to supplant the 65w+ APUs on FM2+.

FX 9000 series was just a beta test for 200w+ APUs, to get motherboard manufacturers accustomed to this sort of TDP.

AMD would never abandon the enthusiast market. They just need to buy themselves time to introduce an enthusiast processor worth it to the market instead of wasting time on FX series processors. However by popular demand they released the 9k with left over batches of the the 8ks.

There would have to be some sort of quick low-latency interconnect technology inside the APU's for this to be feasible, however. Currently none of the present or currently-announced APU's have this. None of them have HyperTransport and there isn't any replacement tech for it announced either. The roadmaps show the APU's for single-socket systems.

Better off with Quad-Channel high-speed DDR3 or DDR4. That should be "enough" for a 7850 or so.
If they do it it will be GDDR5 Kaveri has support for it already as was the plan.

This can change is 2 generations when the new boards come around with their Seamicro interconnects and their excessive work on moonshot servers.

I believe the plan was to share a dGPUs ram with iGPU to not only speed up the iGPU but also to give the system different places to asynchronously improve it's performance. I believe we should be seeing 4gb models of 260x by fall for this purpose.

Perhpas but all that talk would go over the PCI-e bus so I don't know how viable it would be. I just looked trough some AMD slides about Berlin which is Kaveri for server but it states that it comes with next gen GCN maybe they mean the R series rehash or GCN 1.1 in general but what if the are infact the first volcanic islands product we'll be seeing.
post #27 of 28
Kaveri/Berlin iGPU = GCN 1.1, a la Hawaii & Bonaire. I guess Carizzo/Toronto will be GCN 1.2 with Pirate Islands.

Well that remains to be seen since the X2150 is already infact using GCN.
