AMD RYZEN 2 WITH 12 CORES @ 5.1GHZ?! Nvidia Titan V – Volta is here! – Tech News


It’s been an exciting week in the tech world
with Nvidia’s launch of the Titan V, the first Volta based graphics card that isn’t marketed
solely for the professional workspace and rumours about Ryzen 7 Pinnacle Ridge or Ryzen
2 having up to 12 cores and 24 threads at 5.1GHz! Let’s start with Nvidia . Leaked benchmarks
show this card crushing the competition and the specifications are certainly very beefy. The Titan V is based on the new Volta arquitecture
on the 12nm finFET process and has 12GB of HBM2 memory as well as a whopping 5120 CUDA
cores. It isn’t something you can buy with your pocket money though, it will set you
back a total of 3 grand. The reason for this is that the card is not
marketed as a gaming card, it has high bandwidth memory and Tensor cores for professional deep
learning applications. Nvidia describe it as the “most powerful PC GPU ever created”
so it is clearly not marketed solely for professionals but you only need to take a look at the spec
sheet to see that it is not designed for gamers specifically. Nvidia has not excluded gaming,
it does have great gaming performance as leaked benchmarks have shown and I don’t doubt that
some people with money to burn are going to drop 3 grand on the card for the ultimate
gaming experience in desperation to get the latest and greatest. The full specifications are certainly impressive,
the Titan V has the full 5120 CUDA cores found on the professional Tesla V100 AI card, 21
billion transistors, 12GB of HBM2 memory and a memory bandwidth of 652.8 GB/s. To put this
into perspective, the Titan Xp only has 3840 cuda cores and 12.1 billion transistors. The
titan Xp also uses GDDR5X rather than HBM2, the latter being the high bandwidth stacked
memory used in AMD Vega graphics cards. As a result the Titan Xp also has a lower memory
bandwidth than the Titan V, namely 547.7 GB/s. The titan V has a base core clock of 1200MHz
and a boost clock of 1455MHz as well as a memory clock of 850MHz. It has 640 tensor
cores which provides 110 deep learning TERAflops, I say deep learning TERAflops becasue this
number is not useful for gamers, the the FP32 teraflops are what gamers should be looking
at and this number is significantly lower at 15 TERAflops. This is still a jump from
last generation’s Titan Xp and its 12.1 TERAflops though and the difference in performance is
seen in the leaked benchmarks. The leaked benchmarks in Firestrike showed
the Titan V achieving graphics score of 32,774 at stock and nearly 36,000 points when overclocked.
That is almost 10,000 points higher than the GTX 1080 ti! To put those numbers into perspective, a TITAN
Xp based on NVIDA’s Pascal GPU architecture typically scores around 28,000, as does the
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. In the UNIGINE 2 Super position benchmark, the titan V scores a staggering
9961 which is around 1300 more than the score of 8642 that a GTX 1080 ti Kingpin overclocked
on liquid nitrogen to over 2.5GHz scored. These are some huge numbers! The card was also tested in Tomb Raider with
a 66FPS average, 158fps in Gears of War, and 88fps in Ashes of the Singularity at 1440p
on ultra settings, the card was benchmarked with an i7-6700k which would have been a bottleneck
for it so the real numbers that it is capable of achieving may well be somewhat higher. News item number 2 is Ryzen Pinnacle ridge,
which is set to release in Q1 of 2018. A “leaked”, image in inverted commas has appeared in the
Internet showing the Ryzen 2800, if that is indeed what it will be called, with 12 cores
and a 5.1GHz clock speed. The 2700 is shown with 10 cores 20 threads and a clock speed
up 4.5GHz and the 2700x with 12 cores 24 threads and a boost clock of 4.9GHz. This image was later revealed to be fake,
which, let’s face it, is no surprise whatsoever. Bearing in mind that Pinnacle ridge is just
a die shrink from 14 to 12nm rather than a whole new architecture, a core count increase
and clock speed increase of 1.1GHz from the 4GHz boost of the current Ryzen 1800X seems
improbable if not impossible. Pinnacle ridge is the “tock” in the tick tock pattern that
AMD and Intel follow where “tick” represents a new architecture and “tock” represents the
refined version of the same architecture. Pinnacle ridge is not actually Ryzen 2, it
is more like Ryzen 1.5. It is an improvement on the current Zen architecture rather than
a shift to a whole new architecture. That change is not set to occur until 2019 with
Matisse where AMD is due to adopt the 7nm process and even then, large clock speed increases
and core count increases are unlikely. An increase in clock speed of 200-400MHz is more
likely, perhaps we will see the Ryzen 2800 with a base clock of 4.2GHz which is 300MHz
higher than the current 1800X, that should be perfectly achievable. Thanks for watching, if you enjoyed this video

  1. they are not releasing ryzen 2, I do not know how many channels I need to remind that they will be releasing ryzen+ in 2018, then later on ryzen 2….you can see it for yourself in the amd presentations…..it's not rocket science.

  2. If similar processor of Ryzen 5 is priced same or less than i5 8600K & gets at least 4.4 GHz Refresh in Zen+ & beats i5 8600k in gaming, I am willing to buy similar of Ryzen 5 of Zen+
