ASRock Unveils Next-Gen DeskMini X300 & H470 Barebone PCs – Supports AMD Ryzen 4000G Renoir & Intel Comet Lake Desktop CPUs

Published

on

ASRock has officially introduced its latest DeskMini Barebone PCs which come in AMD X300 and Intel H470 flavors to support the Ryzen 4000G Renoir & 10th Gen Core CPUs, respectively. These barebone PCs share very similar designs and come in a 1.92L small form factor PC case that can easily be accommodated almost anywhere.

SRock’s DeskMini X300 & H470 Barebone SFF PC Introduced, Powered by AMD Ryzen 4000G Renoir & Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs

The ASRock DeskMini X300 leaked a while ago and we saw it running alongside the Ryzen 4000 Renoir APU. Now, the barebone PC is coming to retail shelves and ASRock has detailed its next-generation design which comes in both Intel and AMD flavors. First, we will be talking about the AMD side.

ASRock DeskMini X300 (AMD Ryzen) Barebone PC:

The DeskMini X300 barebone PC comes in two flavors, the standard X300, and the X300W. The only difference between both is that the X300W features an Intel WiFi kit. The rest of the specifications are the same between the two variants. So starting with those, the barebone PC will support AMD’s Ryzen 4000G Renoir, Ryzen 3000G Picasso, and Ryzen 2000G Raven Ridge APUs with TDPs of up to 65W. This means that the entire range of AM4 desktop APUs based on the Zen core architecture is supported by the PC.

The barebone PC also offers support for two DDR4-2933 SO-DIMM memory with capacities of up to 64 GB, 2 SATA 3 ports, 2 Ultra M.2 slots, both of which are Gen 3 x4 capable but the second one will be operating at Gen 3×2 when running an Athlon 200GE APU. There’s also an M.2 slot that houses the WiFi & Bluetooth module. As for the I/O, the board comes with 3 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports & a single USB 2.0 port. The PC comes with a 120W/19W adapter to power up. Display outputs include HDMI & Display Port (D-Sub).

Alleged NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Enthusiast Ampere Gaming Graphics Card PCB Pictured – Triple 8-Pin Connectors, Tons of Next-Gen G6 Memory

Published

on

An alleged pictured of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card’s PCB has leaked over at the NVIDIA subreddit (Via @harukaze5719). The GeForce RTX 3090 is rumored to be flagship offering in the Enthusiast Ampere gaming graphics card lineup which will be unveiled on the 1st of September during a digital event hosted by NVIDIA’s CEO, Jensen Huang.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Card’s PCB Leaks Out – Dual-Sided Next-Gen G6 Memory, Triple 8-Pin Connectors & A Secondary Chip

The leaker reports that the PCB is from a non-reference board by Colorful which would serve as its flagship iGame GeForce RTX 3090 Vulcan-X series graphics card. The leaker has blurred out lots of PCB area as he mentions that some of the details of the PCB are classified & cannot be mentioned by him.

With that said, there’s a lot to talk about so let’s start. Just looking at the PCB, we can see that we’re looking at the backside of the board. The graphics card is powered by three 8-pin connectors which will supply power to all of the components on the PCB. This confirms that at least the custom cards won’t be featuring the rumored 12-pin power connector that was reported a while back as it could just be a Founders Edition only design choice (that also hasn’t been confirmed yet).

Looking at the card itself, there are at least 11 memory modules on the backside which seems to indicate dual-sided memory. Historically, cards with dual-sided memory chips feature the same amount of dies on either side so this would indicate 22 memory modules on the card. Considering these are 1 GB modules, the card could end up with 22 GB of VRAM across a 352-bit bus

Agile Teams In A Waterfall Environment: Steps Away From Fixed Everything Work

Published

on

A waterfall precedes and follows rapids

In Agile Teams In A Waterfall Environment: Fixed Budget, Fixed Scope, Fixed DateI talked about a panel discussion that I participated in that was asked: 

“We have been presented with a project with a fixed budget, fixed scope, and fixed date — can we use agile to deliver this project?” 

Interpreting the question as can we “be” agile, the answer is no (heck no if you want to be emphatic).  However, does that mean we need to take our ball and march off the field — never to be or do agile? Again, the answer is also heck no. There are several strategies that a team or even an organization can take to make progress toward a better way of working. 

Walled Garden, which is adopting agile values and techniques at a team level and then constructing approaches to interface with entities outside the bubble you create.   This is the most extreme approach, but it is a way to explore and exhibit agile values. At a team level, a leader or manager often has a substantial amount of leeway to affect how work is done. Everything outside of the team is outside of the leader’s sphere of control, therefore handoffs and data sharing arrangements must be negotiated. The walled garden can be dangerous if the team does not control how they work and if experimentation is acceptable behavior. In the real world walled gardens are often used for experiments but if left to run too long they can cause a team or team of teams to be cut off from the rest of the organization.

Shift Left moves the involvement of engineering employees to the front end of work entry. An example of this type of behavior would be to include a person that will be involved in doing the work in the sales process. Work entry problems will mess up the best-laid plans whether agile or plan-based approaches are used. The acceptance of work into the queue is a sales exercise whether you are dealing with cash-carrying, external customers, or taking orders from internal stakeholders. Determining what is needed, whether it can be done, when it will be done, and how much it will cost are all subject to negotiation (that is what sales is all about). Involve current engineers in the process. The term current is used purposefully, don’t assume that since you coded or tested a few years ago that you understand the nuances of the profession today. Involving a sales engineer will help shape the buying or ordering process so that it is based more on technical information and rational analysis and less on saying anything to get the order. Making work entry more purposeful will reduce the number of fixed everything projects. 

Hybridize your approach to building and managing work.  Visualize your flow and adopt a kanban”y” version of Scrumban. Most kanban methods can be overlaid on any process and do not require you to change how you are working. Once you have visualized

Intel Confirms Sapphire Rapids Processors In 2021 With DDR5, PCIe 5.0 And CXL 1.1

Published

on

At their Architecture Day 2020, Intel also confirmed the launch of its upcoming Sapphire Rapids CPU platform in 2021. Sapphire Rapids will feature support for DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 and will truly be a “next-generation” data center chip with the addition of the CXL 1.1 interconnect. The company has also plans to release the OneAPI (going gold) later this year which should tie up their master plan of a unified datacenter ecosystem quite nicely.

Intel Sapphire Rapids, Alder Lake and 144 Layer QLC confirmed at Intel Architecture Day 2020

While the company did not reveal the exact process Saphire Rapids is based on, we can infer that it will likely be based on the company’s 10nm SuperFin Enhanced process because it succeeds Ice Lake processors (which are based on vanilla 10nm) and because it uses TME. Total Memory Encryption is an architectural design that encrypts the memory completely so even if someone dumps the RAM – they would just get garbage data. This feature is also present in Tiger Lake – which is based on 10nm SuperFin – which lends credence to Sapphire Rapids being based on the same (or more advanced) process as well.

The company also confirmed that they will be shipping a new 144 layer QLC later in 2020 which should be higher than the industry average and offers a 50% density increase over the third generation QLC that Intel produced. This is something that once again ties in with their datacenter unification efforts. The entire platform would be competing against AMD’s Zen 4 based EPYC Genoa lineup which would also be moving to a newer platform known as SP5.

AMD has promised new memory along with new capabilities for the Genoa lineup which would include support for DDR5, PCIe 5.0,
