VRM on the new AM4 motherboards - Page 145

Actually it can and will if....the game is heavily multithreaded.

If heavy memory aida preset can impact it.

Aida preset works elsewhere..

For a quick less dragged out example grab pifast.

Run with and without aida preset.

That bench likes bandwidth should see a variance.

Hmm interesting and good news for ASUS owners in that case. Do you have any links where different real world programs were tested on ASUS boards with different performance bias settings?

I could do some testing if there are any free programs anyone is interested in.

I have only done synthetics but it works...i think starcraft or maybe gta is really heavily threaded. May want to try those with both cine bench presets.

I think its at the cpu lvl it impacts similar useage.

Ehh don't have 'em...that's why I said 'free' programs biggrin.gif

Maybe I was not clear in my first message.
We wer talking about it withbenchmark in the context. But, if that bias preset is impacting the memory and cache bandwidth then It should impact software in general.
There are a few bios settings that can change the behavior of cache and memory, some are available direct to the user, others not, it depends on the vendors choice with said bios.

All good

Well can run time spy on off check cpu scores

Ok, I thought you said it's faster in pretty much everything. Didn't read anything about it just being faster in benchmarks. My mistake.

@chew*

Free programs that work in Windows 7 or Linux hahah! biggrin.gif

Its a shame i have like 50 games in steam/origin/uplay but for me to do game tests properly...would require a ton of unpaid time...that time is valuable as i have little of it..

At this point Im pretty sure my english sucks.biggrin.gif
I think it will impact software in general, the degree of such impact depends on the software specific needs.

Nah your English is good. I was just zeroing in on that one comment about ASUS @ 3.8 vs. Taichi @ 4.0 and only skimmed through the rest of the convo, so prob just me being a lazy reader tongue.gif Anyway, minor miscommunication.

I am really interested now in what the performance bias setting can actually do for people in the real world. Maybe faster folding/boinc-ing, encoding, compiling, rendering, etc.?? I would be willing to test as long as it's not going to take several hours. If anyone wants to suggest some tests that I can run for, say, 15 mins or so and still get some good data; and then reboot and try a different setting; I should be able to get some numbers for one scenario in about an hour (Performance bias @ None, Auto, CB15, and AIDA @ 15 mins each).
