AMD’s Ryzen and Naples: Here to Take the Glory Home



AMD’s new Ryzen processor has definitely succeeded in grabbing eyeballs after its launch due to the sheer brilliance of its power and capability. So far AMD has been a tough contender to all the intel’s best of processors including the recently rolled out Naples. The entire architecture of AMD’s Ryzen looks absolutely brilliant and runs smoothly when it comes to desktops. One of the first processors by AMD that uses the Zen architecture, Ryzen would be redefining the desktop processing in the near future.

While the Zen architecture is amply lauded across the industry for its multi-threaded approach to resolving heavy-duty job scheduling and processing aspect. As per the industry reports, that also concur with the reports released by the company itself, Ryzen has obviously scored high in terms of the various industry benchmarks for CPU. Moreover it has performed better than some of the best processors that have been put forward by Intel so far. Hence it will not be an exaggeration to say that AMD has pretty much made the long awaited comeback into the desktop processing. The demonstrations on the newly launched processor unit clears shows that AMD has certainly put some sweat into furnishing the perfect core design and paid attention to the overall functioning of the processing unit in heavy workload conditions.



The Zen micro architecture has surely been one of the major USP of the chipset but there are also a lot of other nuances to the processor that makes it truly invincible for desktop applications. With the chipsets such as Naples and Ryzen coming onto the fore around the same time, it is almost impossible not to draw a comparison between the two, especially when both the processor units look so promising with regard to their feature set and capabilities in real life scenario.

AMD’s Naples is one of the two-socket server chip that also has the much talked about, Zen architecture. Broadly speaking both Naples and Ryzen are based on Intel’s heavy weight chip such as Broadwell-EP and Kaby Lake silicon. The feature set even though remains almost the same, the numbers seemed to have been tweaked up a bit so as to enable the processing units to be deployed in applications such as for data centers or enterprise servers that see heavy amount of processing demands on a regular basis.



AMD’s Naples comes with as many as 32 cores which makes every aspect of multi-threading processing possible and seamless. For instance, AMD’s Naples comes with a 32-core and 64 thread architecture which when compared to Intel’s best, Xeon E5-2669 V4 that has 22-core architecture gives the former a clear advantage in terms of thread count. Also the bandwidth and the memory channel provided by Naples are surely a head and shoulders above what is being provided by other contenders. The PCI Express high-speed IO connectivity also enables the processor a higher memory channel at point of time leading to effective usage of the memory element within and at the periphery.

On the other hand, AMD’s Ryzen packs a 8 core, 16 thread architecture which to be honest is effective for most of the desktop applications save the ones that need a monumentally high level of processing such as in case of operations in most enterprises. Ideal for being used in as a standalone system on a desktop-like condition, ryzen brings the best of desktop computing and Zen architecture to the fore. It comes with a complex AI framework that supports learning on the fly using a built in neural network inside the processor. All this encompasses that as the CPU is used with a certain kind of application, the processor can actually train itself to perform certain routine aspects of the entire operation quiet swiftly using neural network. The power efficiency of the processor is worth a mention as it surpasses those of several top end processors.



AMD’s Ryzen comes with man integrated sensors on board that would enable the system to monitor a lot of parameters that were not possible to be monitored before. Another interesting fact about the Ryzen processing unit is the fact it can automatically over clock itself any kind of cooling condition so as to deliver peak performance whenever needed. This particular aspect has brought forth several questions regarding the efficiency of the unit in the long run but as per the manufacturer, the processor comes with ample capability to clock itself down to the optimal level based on the operational demands. The various desktop variants of the Ryzen processor that will be rolled out for the desktops, would consists of L2 and L3 cache memory that would at the tune of 4MB to 16 MB which is definitely going to spur up the overall speed of the processor to a huge extent.

Summary-
Ryzen was launched targeting the desktops and that is where it would need to perform well and as luck would have it does a lot of heavy lifting task in terms of overall throughput even when used in server architecture.

Google Maps makes Traveling Easier

With the growth of technology, there has been an implausible development in the Google maps. It has become the hope for the people who love to travel many places. It makes people get through the details of many known and unknown places before visiting there. So on the whole Google Maps is one of the great applications created by Google.

While people are willing to visit new places at that time people can make their proper planning. In that context, Google made available the whole process by which the directions for travel can get quicker to the users.

For that reason, this availability of navigation introduced by Google created an ease by which the users can visit their favourite places. With the selection of favourite places, users can also have the facility to go there as per their feasibility. This clear organisation for future reference is also available in the Google Maps which adds to make the app user-friendly for the users.



For example, if any person wants a break from his…

Comcast’s Starts Beta Testing for Roku

It is the X1 platform that covers all the live broadcast channels, cloud recordings, and video-on-demand services, but without X1 box. It has been almost a year now since the Comcast last announced its work on the “Xfinity TV partner app” for Samsung and Roku, and the Roku version is now ready for the actual beta testing. The Xfinity TV beta app is available now in the channel store, with access to “live and on-demand programming services, including local broadcast as well as Public Educational and Governmental channels, along with their cloud DVR recordings.”

According to Comcast, this beta test is done so that it can check out the performance and added features before the official launch actually happens later this year. The customers should also expect their full in-home cable experience that will be just delivered over Comcast’s “locally managed network” as the IPTV instead of the traditional QAM broadcasting. The locally managed network also means that whatever you are watching…

Top 5 Best Smart Watches

Did you ever think that your wrist watch can do many other things either than showing time or date? Yes, you can do many other things with the help of your watch if it is smart. Wearing normal traditional watches has gone old fashioned now because the entrance of smart watches has changed the whole scenario. It is the latest technology which came into existence by integration of both wristwatch and smartphone.

It is an innovative technology that lets you operate the standard functions of the smartphone with the help of a simple wearable watch.

Google Home just Went a Little Bonkers with the Google Home Commercial

Google’s advertisement for its Home device was one of the most talked about event of last night. Google’s viewers having their own Google home were left totally irritated and annoyed by the advertisement, because there was a hitch and the advert had made Google home go ‘Haywire’. Users were annoyed by the ad, as their home system thought that the TV was trying to communicate with them.

Super Bowl Commercial brings in the ‘problem’
Google home stays dormant until someone says ‘Ok Google’ or ‘Hey Google’, but last night, during the Super bowl commercial, the home systems heard instead TV broadcast say those things or the phrases for Google home to snap up from the dormant phase, this caused them to turn on their TVs. Google which planned to use the commercial of Super Bowl for Google home connectivity service but this commercial end up in confusion for those who already have it.

Users took to twitter to complain
