    Its often confusing which category to choose for the IGP part of a APU, so here is a incomplete list to help find you the correct one. AMD ZEN: AMD choose to change their name scheme in 2020. Before we had Radeon Vega 3 to 11 Graphics, now it's just "Radeon Graphics" independent of existing shaders. Also there is actually "RX Vega" for everything from Vega 10 but for some reason and for some cards they omitted that. In late 2019 they introduced with the Athlon 3000G a new entry level CPU featuring a native 2 core die with a 3 CU graphics part in the desktop market. But for some very strange reason, they want to let the world believe that this one is a Picasso part, yet delidding shows that this is actually the same core like the embedded Banded Kestrel, which is also known as Dali in the consumer market and AMD itself says 14nm on its HP. Speculations are that those CPUs should be using harvested Picasso dies but the yield of those chips was too good and they made a last minute decision and used Dali cores instead. This is very confusing and almost all detection tools give wrong information. We have the situation that CPU-Z reports "Picasso" while GPU-Z says "Raven Ridge". Sadly we got no real response from CPU-Z authors to fix the incorrect reporting. Looks like they wait for official response from AMD on that matter. Anyway without knowing too much about technical details, those chips are are something between Raven Ridge and Picasso but overclocking wise it's not really making a difference. 14nm vs 12nm is actually more important. So that's why those Dali chips go in the same category as Raven Ridge.

    Beta version of ZenStates with advanced Memory Controller config included. Should work on all Zen2-based CPUs and Renoir (Desktop АМ4). Readings are not realtime, but just a snapshot on app open. Don't have plans to add realtime reading, maybe a simple separate monitor app with just voltages, clocks and power. Still haven't found how to read BCLK, ACPI always reports 100. Download from GoogleDrive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YfHep9mX2POJhRrdEM_0WQklMDd0amZb/view?usp=sharing. 10/08/2020: Re-uploaded with a fix for first read after reboot.

    well when setting up some made the comments the 3D stages were too easy and all doable with just a few cards So I added extra hardware specifics. No further remarks/opinions before we went live (besides the nforce board limitation, so we added some more nForce chipsets). Nothing is undoable… you need to get the team to sort out things, if the hardware is unavailable in your region, someone else might get it cheaper and get the score(s) done. Again you don't loose a Team Cup based on one stage where you miss one or two scores. People are way too focused on always getting the best gear.

    This should be all belong to Picasso: https://url.hwbot.org/33xL1Wv All other categories should now correctly created although it might be hard for users to find the correct category. Wish we had already a feature to match the IGP automatically to the used CPU.

    I plan to post lots of things like this and don't want to flood to other sections with my random projects. I would post on xtremesystems but I do not think it will be around much longer. Make phase change great again . Nothing to be terrified about. All the parts will be pressure tested to 30 bar and are all meant for these pressures and temps. It will be a piece of shit for performance but it will be safe. I have pressure tested the bronze line to the max of my n2 tank which is 50 bar I think .

    What about 1.625 VCCSA? for me it's scary even on cold
  11. 2 points
    On core voltage my understanding is that the voltage limitations are the same as 9th gen, and I have consistently heard that 1.4v under full load was the limit for 9th gen. Though with the temps being lower on 10th gen I am not sure this holds true, and the speed of degradation, if any, could take longer given lower temps. That being said I will likely not go over 1.4v full load for daily.

    hey hwbot forums folks, I'm sorta new on here this is my current setup, intended for 24/7: anything I can improve on, maybe Apex specific (apart from ppd 0)? you reckon 1.43 Vcore under load will degrade noticeably or is it fine for Intel 14nm++++?

    Yes, the cpu has a free multi, only cpu’s with a stock multi which is higher then then 12,5x work with those multi’s. I am using ticktacs bios now, but the version from digitalbath or the original latest bios has the same issue. I don’t see any revision numbers.

    Also they have a 5-bit FID meaning work fine with multi over 12,5. I've got 8RDA+ Pro and 8RDA3+ Pro. 8RDA6+ Pro is the same with additional controllers (SATA AFAIK).

    A gigabyte rep told me that the 1T bug with dual rank dimms should be fixed in X5. I was not aware that no one had it yet. The bug is: on both 2018 (october sticker) and 2020 year (February sticker) Gskill 3200 CL14 2x16 GB Trident Z RGB (F4-3200C14-32GTZR) sticks, 1T command rate does not work at XMP on either set. (basic 3200 CL14, all auto timings). it just boot loops and resets after repeated fails at training. The 2020 sticks are much better clockers than the 2018 sticks at 2T.

    @skullbringer Maybe see if you can tighten some of the other subtimings more. I'm able to push 4666 17-17-17-28 280 on a z390 dark (albeit my current memory isn't good enough to push that daily) with twr 10, twcl 14, twrrd_sg/dg 26/21, and lower trtp and tcke. I don't know if twcl 14 is possible above 4666 ratio and tcl 17, as my memory and board can't push it. The other timings should be doable, though.

    Elmor recently started taking orders for the AMPLE 20A power card. It’s a simple little single-phase VRM that can be used to replace a broken VRM or simply overcome that pesky OCP/OVP. The most common potential usage would be for a GPU memory rail. However, with an output voltage from 1.0-3.4 V it could be used for many different applications. I obtained a test sample of this new device and I intend to put it to the ultimate test. I have an RX 580 GPU with a damaged memory voltage rail, but otherwise the GPU is in perfect condition. The plan is to solder on the AMPLE power card and observe the impact on the memory overclocking. I know what the card was capable of before the memory VRM died, so it’s the perfect test case for this little device. So follow along as I put this thing to the test and find out if it’s capable of delivering sufficient power to 8 GB of GDDR5. The AMPLE Device The device ships in an anti-static bag with the 6-pin connector added in as an accessory. This gives you the flexibility to power up the AMPLE from any qualifying voltage source you desire. Product Specification Output voltage adjustable 1.0-3.4 V using the on-board potentiometer (range can be increased by adding your own potentiometer) Nominal input voltage 12 V (functional from 4.5 V up to 16 V) Max output current 20 A (thermally limited). Active cooling may be required to achieve high output current. Efficiency at max output 91.5% (3.4 V, 20 A, 750 KHz) Switching frequency selectable between 300 KHz and 750 KHz OVP (+20%), OCP (24A) and OTP (Tj = 150*C) Output voltage can be monitored and adjusted using the EVC2 VMOD1-header Ships with a PCIE 6-pin power connector which can be soldered on by the user Source Credit: elmorlabs.com There is one switch on the device which acts as a mode selector. There are a total of 4 different combinations you can set, which change the output delivery settings. Switch 1 OFF = 750 KHz switching frequency Switch 1 ON = 300 KHz switching frequency Switch 2 OFF = PSM = Power Saving Mode, higher ripple but lower loss at low loads Switch 2 ON = CCM = Constant Conduction Mode. The PMIC is always regulating to the best of its ability, for the tightest possible voltage regulation. In some cases, for example with this project at 3.0V+, that will create a high loss in no-load or low-load situations. For controlling the voltage there are multiple different methods you can choose from. To make things simple, there is a potentiometer on the power card for direct control. For more advanced control, you have the ability to integrate the device with an EVC2 module using the vmod connection. Mounting the Power Card Before you just hastily solder on the AMPLE device, you should take the time to power it on and make sure it works. I would suggest powering it up and setting the desired voltage before you attempt to solder it on a GPU. The underside of the AMPLE has power and ground planes. In my particular case I won't need these connections so I decided to insulate them with a few layers of Kapton tape. This is an unnecessary step, but in my case there were a few components on the card which were extremely close to shorting on the AMPLE device. I chose to mount mine with 0.8 mm copper plate. I kept the plane-to-plane distance as short as possible. Furthermore, I always prefer to make my ground connections on the front of the card after where the main connection is. In the picture below you can see both ground connections come after the memory plan connection. In my testing this provides the best realized MHz whether it be core or memory external VRM replacement. Test Setup The overall goal is to compare stock PCB memory overclocking with AMPLE power memory overclocking. To make the test consistent, I will use the same load voltage for both test conditions. The test methodology is to overclock memory and record the passable frequency in Fire Strike GT1. I will start at 2280 MHz, increase +10 MHz until it becomes unstable PowerColor RX580 8GB Golden Sample Z490 test platform AMPLE VRM on memory rail Memory IC: Micron D9VVR 1625 MHz strap timings copied to 2000 MHz strap (Most efficient timings possible without diminishing returns on frequency) In order to get a realistic look at the voltage response of the device, I have placed voltage test points (TP1-3) at various distances away from the main inductor. During the load tests, I will also be conducting thermal tests of the mosfet heatsink. Ambient temperature for all tests around 24c The voltage read points are as follows: TP1 = AMPLE power voltage at C10 cap TP2 = GPU plane voltage at solder connection TP3 = Memory IC voltage at MLCC cap on back of card, at least 100mm distance from AMPLE Vout solder connection Test Results Voltage droop is the enemy of external VRM mods. It’s important to know exactly where the voltage droop occurs because it can narrow down the cause. The voltage test point results indicate that the droop is not caused by the solder connection. The voltage droop is present at the C10 capacitor so therefore it’s coming directly from the AMPLE VRM. This makes me happy because the solder connection is relatively perfect, but it’s mildly concerning to see the AMPLE being stressed under load. Regardless of any droop, the card was still able to pass FS GT1 test at the highest possible memory frequency. There is effectively no difference between the stock VRM and the AMPLE VRM for this test application. The temperature reached a peak at the end of GT2 and was still climbing. With the Fire Strike test, GT3 is CPU based so it had a cooldown period. The max temp of around 50c seems reasonable but further testing may be needed. Sustained loads of 1hr might show a different result. SW1 Test results proved inconclusive. Disregarding experimental error, there was effectively no difference in the realized MHz or voltage response. Conclusion Overall I am extremely pleased with this little device. It performed exceptionally well and the end result is that I was able to achieve the same overclocking performance as the stock PCB. The AMPLE single-phase power card has been validated for benchmarking purposes. In terms of the switch options, my expectation was that CCM mode with 750 KHz would be the optimal configuration. The switch test results showed that the various combinations didn't have any noticeable effect on realized Mhz or voltage response. The 10 mV voltage droop is a mild concern because it’s coming directly from the AMPLE, however, it did not affect the overall overclocking result. With a price tag of just $20,, it’s an absolute must-have tool for extreme overclockers. My RX580 is the perfect use case. The card was effectively dead and useless, but the mighty little AMPLE device brought it back to life and it still holds gold in TIme Spy. Even if the price was tripled, I would still recommend it because of its potential value. This was just my first test, stay tuned for more tests to come.

    Nice scores! Weird, normally PiFast is more unstable than 1M...

    anyone want to try some daily mem presets? https://drive.google.com/file/d/18Voa-zBpBVtlHFAMtxLH8cMeqxFpOGaO/view?usp=sharing These have been verified so far by testing a couple bdie kits and few micron ones. More kits to be tested but thought to share for any of you who might be interested. Please note that each kit/imc etc will behave differently so you might need/want to fine-tune timings and voltages.

    Completely agree that we need the different leagues. Yes its difficult to catch a Formula 1 team cheating or the continuous doping cases around the world but the fact is also that being able to compare with people who relatively have a similar setup actually helps build the interest in OC-ing. Noting on day one of a new processor release that all world records are broken by professional teams might have an interest for the core few who then have a target to try take down the next 2 months but it does not encourage the new or general mass of OCers. It probably just mean that their scores will be 0.01 of something never achievable. I joined and took part in the rookie roundups and still remember ending up 3rd place in what 2014. Atleast i could compete with people who had similar skill level. Now i keep checking what cooling the next guy up the rank has on each spot as i know if its LN2 then i have reached the max ( usually as i have taken down some of those too with my Dry ice.) This goes for any sport. The lightning Bolt might have a world record but he sure dont have the Swedish 100 meter record nor the county record or my old school record from grades 3 - 7. Some other guys have beaten those and that is perfectly ok as it was in similar circumstances, though now i am sure they have better surface on the track and shoes that does half the running for them 😉 and i cant call that cheating. The combination of leagues and competitions with frequency set as we have now is great. I use the competitions to see how close i can get to the real guru's in fine tweaking. Especially the ones that submit scores during the competition and not just the last few seconds help me improve my own scores in the competition first and then when i let my hardware loose separately on the chiller or dry ice I can hopefully improve my hardware scores and maybe a global or two after the new found learning in the process. Even more fun when some of the Guru's actually noticed the score and give words of encouragement before showing how its done 🙂 that's what builds and refresh a community. When I cooled my computers with air and basic AIO its one set of limitations and cost and maybe even dunking the pump in ice water. This means rookies and enthusiasts can have fun also take part in the competitions if getting reasonable points for being 50% above the normal hardware settings and getting reasonably higher scores that is a great achievement. With the chiller down to +3 or so its another. I use this most of the time now but the electricity bill looks thereafter 🙂 about 200 USD a month just for my computer stuff. With the dry ice at 70 USD for 20 kg which give me good fun on a weekend on Z390 platform or half that time on the X299 and i might be lucky and get a few 30 pointers here and there. I would have loved to go on LN2 but simple fact is it would be illegal to bring it in to the condo and am sure many others would face same restrictions around the globe. But yes i keep my hardware so maybe one day hehe when i move ill find a more conducive place for exactly that reason. Before that sorry no Formula 1 competing for me. Meanwhile its great that its a global reach on this OC community as so far i have not found any real community in Philippines nor Uganda and it seems the one in Sweden consists of RAUF and....

    Do you need same cpus on different boards, or just different cpus. I have a 2700x in the Impact 8 currently if that’s of any assistance?
