AMD Patents Suggest Company Is Investigating Hybrid ‘big.Little’ Design:

https://www.extremetech.com/computing/3 ... tle-design

Similar to Intel, though I assume this mini 'big.LITTLE' revival is just for mobile and power constrained devices.
Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever for desktop. [-X

Could be interesting if it made for cheaper processors where instruction sets that aren't in common use are limited to certain cores. The patent is fairly generous with "low feature" and "high feature" wording.

I'd find it even more interesting (even if unlikely) to see a mixed arch design where ARM or RISC-V handled common ops and pushed back to the main proc for the heavy stuff. I think we're at the point where it's doable, though I don't expect to see it.

AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G Renoir APU review:
The AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G is based on the same crystal as the mobile Ryzen 4000. It has what we refer to these days, a monolithic (non-chiplet) design, so that's one big die holding it all. The area of the 7-nm crystal is 156 mm2, on which there are six Zen 2 cores and seven Vega CU with fifth-generation GCN architecture for the Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G tested today. The heat generation package is rated 65 Watts for the G series and 35 Watts for the GE series. There are also options with 8 CU / 8 cores and 6 CU / 4 cores, which in turn allows you to cover all price segments. We focus on the six-core part in this review.

ASUS confirms A520 motherboards to support Cezanne (Ryzen 5000G) APUs:
Interestingly the slide does not confirm that ASUS will support Zen3 processors on B450 and X470 motherboards. A wide-spread criticism of AMD’s decision to abandon the 400-series platform for Zen3 processors has made AMD change this decision. The company did confirm that Zen3 support will require special BIOS which will be provided to its board partners. Apparently, ASUS does not plan to provide such support.

Interesting to note, ASUS planning to go against AMD's recent support U-turn then.

AMD Renoir Powers the World Record of DDR4 Memory Overclock: 6,666 MHz

AMD apparently features the best memory controller in the x86 consumer space. A user going by the alias Bianbao XE achieved a 6,666 MHz frequency on a single stick of Crucial Ballistix Max. The stick's original rating is for a mere 2,666 MHz - doesn't that put things in perspective?

StoreMI V2 is now available for 400 series mobos.

If it's less functionally awkward I'll love it. It sounds like it should be.

Alright first drive setup with it (AMD SSD+SSHD)

Haven't used it yet but considering neither of them houses any of my super important data it's good for a test run.

Write speeds don't seem quite the same but I haven't gotten around to using it for anything too interesting.
