What sort of features 🤔

[-] SuperIce 32 points 11 months ago

Ones that are built into the CPU's hardware but you have to pay extra to unlock like a DLC for your CPU. That's not a joke, Intel's new Xeons are like that.

Great, now we have to pirate processor DLC.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 11 months ago

And that's when you remember why you have been an average AMD enjoyer.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 11 months ago

Yeah its crazy. And according to Wendell at Level1Techs its actually a huge benefit but yeah, especially at a datacenter scale I can't see anyone buying chips with dlc. Especially with Epyc currently spanking everyone's butt right now.

That seems like a big security risk.

Same with GPUs. Man as an amd owner I also want to play with the cool AI kids without hassle

[-] [email protected] 10 points 11 months ago

Honestly, it's probably more worthwhile to rent a GPU on the cloud rather than buying one for this purpose. Unless you are either working with AI or doing something serious with it, it's likely the better (and more cost effective) option either way. Hardware for training is fairly cheap.

Yeah. I’m currently using google colab but it is sometimes a bit of a hassle.

I’m currently planning to resume using it and maybe I will get a cheap second hand card by pure luck.

I bought Nvidia for the AI packages that support their GPUs, but I'm not happy about it. I would have much preferred to go with AMD.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 11 months ago

Not a Fan. I'm an enjoyer

On 1st gen ryzen cpu (until rzen3), don't have branch recording with "perf record -b" So no way to make your program +15% faster with profile data/PGO/FDO without effort. 😞

[-] [email protected] 4 points 11 months ago

You mean like AVX-512? Oh wait… lol

[-] ItsMeForRealNow 2 points 11 months ago

I bought an expensive custom built PC with a threadripper CPU on it and they changed socket type for the next generation. And then they didn't release any, anymore. Just sucks to invest.
