thx a lot @pastrychef
concerning the X99 rig it is fully stable on High Sierra so I guess it will not be a problem for Catalina (but I need to check to be sure)
at worst on Mojave it is stable so... :)
for information in japan:
a Radeon VII is 89 000 yens
a Vega 64 is 37 000 yens
a RX5700XT is...
i am looking for changing my 1080Ti for a Radeon VII
i am running a X99 + E2699v4 rock solid (cf my signature)
i will use it most of the time for DaVinci resolve, with rush in 4k@24fps
but I am pretty lost concerning the label of the Radeon VII I need: XFX? Sapphire? Gigabyte? Asus...
the bios attached works perfectly on my rig
BUT maybe a new one exists
this one modified is stable ;)
so no problem at all
follow the way to patch it bec use sometimes it is pretty tricky to patch perfectly
(I did it with the button on the back)
thx a lot @metacollin
just show my results (it looks not incredible but as I am working 24/7 with rendering, it is always good to have more than less)
monocore: 14% more
multi: 3% more
also strangely I lost tiny bit in openCL/metal but I guess it is not related to it
PS you have written...
I wanted after a long discussion with @kgp
there is tons of interest to be on AMD GPU (and much more when you can OC the graphic card)
but unfortunately all my programs on Windows 10 use ONLY cuda
if I install an AMD I will not be able to use any of those programs: photogrammetry etc etc :(
new post with informations and a little question:
About XEON v4, BIOS and GeekBench scores:
As well described a 6950x or a 7980xe: needs to have in bios "Sync All Cores" activated, to increase the GB score
the xeon v4 family works differently!
After a fresh installation, I found that "sync all...
As I am installing again X.13.6
i had to read again from scratch all the manual ;)
but found some points that have some mistakes on writings
(it is not a criticism at all, as the manual is well done, and I truly consider the @kgp manual as the reference that I use to all my rigs, it is just a...
About CPU Microcode Update (B.1.1):
i understood that it is for solving OC problems,
but as having a Xeon (2696v4), I asked myself if the microcodes missing are exclusively linked to OC? (so nothing else)
I didnt find any informations about that sorry
or at the opposite a tiny difference can...
I am sorry but I am afraid that I cannot help at all
an ES is too tricky because the architecture is sometimes different:
ES cover: alpha, beta and Release candidates CPU
it means that if you are lucky it looks pretty the same than a standard one
if you are not lucky: it will be unstable and...
no of course the bootcamp cannot do it
you are playing with fire: the OC of a pascal is more tricky than a Maxwell
I advise you to do nothing and also you didnt read me well:
on hackintosh the OC will not be useful AT ALL
instead of you put free wattage but you dont have strong...
someone called me :p
1st of all EFI and bios are 2 different things
OK so Maxwell (980 Ti for example) and Pascal (1080) are totally different for BIOS
you cannot OC a pascal as a Maxwell, forget it
because the pascal works on a variable OC when Maxwell manages to have a max OC (frequency and...
