These fans are plugged into the included LED controller, which supports up to six fans and is compatible with the motherboards’ 5V ARGB connector. These fans have an RGB diffuser ring, which allows for robust and bright RGB lighting effects to be shown throughout the system. These fans are equipped with a Hydro-Dynamic Bearing allowing for enhanced durability and near-silent operation even at the most massive workloads.

These fans are connected to the MG120-G’s built-in LED controller, which can have up to six fans connected and have all the RGB lighting to be synchronized. This LED controller connects to the motherboard through the 5V ARGB connection, allowing these fans to be controlled through the motherboard RGB software.

The front of the case can feature up to three 120 mm fans or two 140 mm fans, and the top panel features support for two 120 or 140 mm fans, and a single 120 mm fan can be mounted to the rear to act as a result. The front IO is somewhat limited, having just two USB ports alongside the two 3.5 mm audio input and output jacks.

AMD Navi 21 ‘Big Navi’ GPU Rumored To Be Featured In 16 GB & 12 GB Radeon RX Gaming Graphics Cards

Published

on

AMD’s Big Navi Radeon RX graphics card rumors are heating up as we get closer to Q4 2020. After the most recent rumor from Chinese PTT forums, a second rumor has emerged which points to a similar story but also adds in an interesting detail about the various configurations that we could expect from AMD’s enthusiast-grade RDNA 2 ‘Navi 2X’ GPUs.

MD Radeon RX ‘Big Navi GPU’ Gaming Graphics Cards Rumored To Launch in 16 GB & 12 GB Flavors

The second rumor comes from a more credible leaker ‘Wjm47196’ from Chiphell who has got many AMD specific rumors correct in the past. According to his latest rumor, the AMD Navi 21 GPU, which is internally referred to as ‘Big Navi’ and has been spotted with the Sienna Cichlid & Navy Flounder codenames, will feature at least two different memory configurations.

Rogame already pointed out at least four SKUs for the Navi 21 (RDNA 2) GPU but we did not know anything else aside from the PCI IDs. There’s active speculation going on right now regarding exact specifications and configurations of each SKU in terms of core counts, texture mapping units, and ROPs since we now know that the GPU consists of 5120 stream processors packed within 80 CUs.

Let’s have some fun
😁

We know by now that Navi21 die has 80CU. We also know there are 4 variants of Navi21:

Navi21 XTX
Navi21 XT
Navi21 XL
Navi21 XE

W = water
A = Air

How many CUs do you think each variant will have?

I think XE will be cut down memory bus 320bit

— _rogame (@_rogame) August 5, 2020

As per Rogame, the Navi 21 GPU currently has the following SKUs:

Navi 21 XTX (0x731F:D0)Navi 21 XT (0x731F:D1)Navi 21 XL (0x731F:D3)Navi 21 XLE (0x731F:DF)

Each GPU SKU will be replacing the existing cards in the Radeon RX 5000 series family but in an entirely different performance segment. For comparison, Navi 10 also has four GPU SKUs that are available to consumers. The Navi 10 XTX chip is the highest binned part which powers the Radeon RX 5700 XT 10th Anniversary Edition followed by the Navi 10 XT GPU that powers the Radeon RX 5700 XT, Navi 10 XL which powers the Radeon RX 5700 and finally, the Navi 10 XLE which powers the Radeon RX 5600 XT.

According to the rumor, AMD is expected to introduce its Big Navi GPU based Radeon RX graphics cards lineup in at least two different VRAM configurations. The flagship variant is said to feature a 16 GB GDDR6 capacity while a cut-down variant is stated to feature 12 GB GDDR6 capacity. A 16 GB VRAM capacity would suggest a 512-bit bus interface for the flagship and a 384-bit bus interface for the cut-down 12 GB model.

Exclusive: The State Of AMD’s Supply Chain, August 2020

Published

on

We have been closely following the news cycle on alleged capacity constraints at AMD for quite a while now and with no clear answer, we thought it was time to do some digging of our own. This story is focused around the recent interest in AMD’s mobility processors (specifically Renoir) and is based on multiple sources spread throughout ODMs, AIBs, and industry contacts that deal directly with logistics (based out of Taiwan). All information presented has been carefully vetted, cross-checked and should be independently verifiable by anyone wishing to do so.

MD Renoir shipments to ODMs tripled from Q1 to Q2 with overall mobile shipments at a record level, supply chain is scaling at an unprecedented pace

AMD’s Renoir is an APU that is the culmination of an effort almost 4 years in the making. Combining the best of every world for laptops and notebooks, Renoir promises to provide one of the fastest computes, amazing graphics, and huge battery life at a cost lower than ever before. We have covered Renoir extensively in the past and our in-house polls have indicated it as one of the most eagerly anticipated chips from AMD. That said, fluctuating regional/retail availability of notebooks has sparked speculation about potential capacity constraints over at AMD and this is something we will investigate today.

The first thing we did was reach out to AMD for an official statement and while they had the following comment prepared for us, in typical AMD fashion, they decided not to reveal anything further:

We are seeing unprecedented demand for our AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile series processors based on leadership performance and energy efficiency. AMD Ryzen 4000 processor sales ramped faster than any mobile processor in AMD history. We are increasing production to address the incremental demand requests from our customers for AMD Ryzen 4000 series processors and are focused on growing our footprint in the notebook market.

– AMD Spokesperson to Wccftech, 8/5/2020

This comment from AMD does confirm that the company is scaling up production to meet demand, but it still doesn’t address the core of the issue. It also contains a very interesting hint which I will reference later. Lack of availability can usually be attributed to two different causes: a supply bottleneck (capacity constraint) or an excessive, unprecedented surge of demand that creates a temporary “supply chain lag” in the ecosystem. To answer this question, I reached out to some sources that are familiar with these issues and got some interesting facts back.

Before I state the gory details, let’s go over some publicly known context: AMD has already revealed that they delivered a record number of mobile shipments last quarter. They have also confirmed that Renoir is the fastest revenue ramping notebook processor in their history. With that in mind, based on my

Directive or Non-directive Coaching: Why Everyone Needs To Know

Published

on

The discussion of whether a coach is using a directive or non-directive coaching approach is not an academic discussion. As a person that has held internal and external coach positions, the primary reason to explicitly understand the expectations of the role and how those expectations can evolve is so that you can manage those expectations. As noted in Directive or Non-Directive Coaching, coaching one way or the other is neither good nor bad depending on the context. The big but is that when a person, team, or organization expects or needs you to act one way and you act the other things go awry.  Three basic scenarios can be used to illustrate when one approach is indicated over another. They are: 

Scenario 1: The coachee does not have the skills or knowledge needed for a situation. A directive approach should be your default approach. In a non-directive approach, the coach guides the coachee to form their own conclusions based on their knowledge, skills, and experience. If the coachee does not have the basis for making decisions in this scenario the risk of failure increases exponentially. In the long run, a non-directive would be useful for facilitating the organic acquisition of knowledge and skills that are owned by the coachee. Issues arise when time is of the essence or when there is a high probability of the coachee making a bad choice that can not be undone. If the coaching agreement does not give the coach permission to use directive techniques, such as providing direction, sharing skills, and knowledge transfer the risk of failure will increase.

Scenario 2: A leader or coachee is used to one approach or the other. You need to level-set before you start any coaching engagement. I highly recommend establishing an agreement covering expectations. Some individuals have one coaching model stuck in their minds as being the preferred model. One of the most common experiences with coaches is through athletics during school years. Athletic coaches are predominantly directive in nature. If that is the model you expect and the coach is using non-directive techniques frustration will set in. A friend in India recently told me a story about a coach who was caught unaware when they got a new boss who viewed non-directive coaches as unassertive and unproductive. The coach nearly lost their job before developing an understanding that the rules had changed. 

Scenario 3: The person, team, or organization being coached has a mature understanding of the subject being addressed. A coach taking a directive approach in this scenario might as well put their hand in a running garbage disposal. The coaching agreement, in this scenario, needs to explicitly recognize that the coach should be drawing on non-directive techniques, such as Socratic questions, to help the team consolidate their knowledge and understanding into a decision or idea that they can own
