The CPU “Die” Actually Isn’t the Die?
02:29 - Soren: “So I just watched der8auers video where he talks about the 9900k stim issues, and he sanded down the die. I was under the impression the die was the processor and all the transistors were in there. But if it's okay to sand down, then what really is the die?And where are the transistors located, the pcb under the die? That makes me think again what the die really is and what it's function is.”
How Do I Check Voltage Accurately to Avoid Damage?
09:14 - SadPandaa: “@Steve Burke Asked this question on your last live stream and you gave a quick though but wondering a little more. I am overclocking a non-k i5 6400 at 4.7GHz 1.325V so I have to disable C-states and turbo boost, full time overclock. To reduce power usage and heat I have been using level 8 LLC to ramp up voltage under load and drop back down to 1.280 at idle. This seems like it has the effect I am looking for but I am worried that max LLC may be spiking higher than what is reported in HWinfo. Is this something I should worry about and test with an o-scope or do the spikes normally report somewhat accurately as max vcore in HWinfo?”
Why Are Some “100%” Loads More Intensive Than Others?
15:51 - Banana Milk: :@Steve Burke What makes some 100% CPU/GPU loads more intense than others? INTEL Burn Test, AVX workloads, fuzzy donut, etc.”
Does Crunch Culture Exist in Hardware?
22:27 - cG.fu*: “@Steve Burke #askgn-questions Steve, in the PC game and video game community more broadly, we're starting to hear more and more about the problems with "crunch" culture as developers approach release of a game and are asked to work a high number of hours by management. You yourself have talked about the hours that you've worked during launch review periods in the brief window between receiving hardware for review and embargo lift. My question is given your contacts in the industry: does a similar culture of "crunch" exist on the engineering and marketing side at the companies that develop the products we all love to evaluate? I recognize that the time horizon (i.e. when the crunch happens) is probably different for someone developing the RTX 2080 TI compared to the Witcher 3, but does a culture of "crunch" pervade Intel, AMD, or NVIDIA and other firms like ASUS, MSI, EVGA ahead of the release of a new product or not?”
