Naa, they were just buying AMD stock for future retirement plan :-).
Do we know if this 1.6V goes inside the CPU chiplets or the I/O Chiplet runs on 1.6V and the CPU Chiplets run on lower voltage ?[maybe we should stop thinking in monolithic way?]
I thought there were demo about RAM running at 5GHz for DDR4 on Ryzen 2? I bet Ryzen 2 can easily go beyond 4000MHz this time.
That's on ryzen using 2 sticks of ram. The max potential speed goes down as you use more chs. On tr 2nd gen i was able to get 8 sticks to boot @ 3200 but it still failed training maybe 1/3 of the time. I don't want to play the chip mc lotto or the 30% training failure. With ryzen 3 supposedly having a ram speed sweet spot of 3600 according to AMD, I really expect to not have training failures with TR3 and using all 4 chs.
