F1 2016

The spiritual successor to the 2016 suite's DiRT Rally, F1 2016 is Codemasters' latest installment of the F1 franchise. It features Codemasters' traditional built-in benchmarking tools and scripts, something that is surprisingly absent in the latest iteration of DiRT. Graphically demanding in its own right, F1 2016 adds a useful racing-type graphics workload to our suite.

Ultra settings were used without alterations.

    Exactly. I REALLY want to run my games in a VM guest.

    In RTG slide on architecture side. Vega have some MB SRAM. Can you tell me what this SRAM use for?
  • DanNeely - Monday, August 14, 2017 - link

    Various caches and internal buffers; on die memory is normally SRAM because it's several times faster than DRAM. (DRAM is several times denser since it only uses 1 transistor/bit vs the 4(?) for SRAM; which is why its used for main memory where total capacity is more important - and where the data bus is the main latency source anyway.) I'd be curious what the breakdown is since only 4MB if it's in the L2 cache.

    Yes, same with me. Like we all know GCN 5 has no change on L2 Cache size but i am curious, AMD say this SRAM and L2 Cache size differently.

    A lot of it is going to be in the low level L1 caches and stuff local to the shaders -- there are a lot of shaders, so it will add up fast. GCN 5 does have double L2 cache, at least according to this article, 4MB vs 2MB. AMD says there is a total of over 45MB of SRAM on there, which is pretty impressive for a GPU!

    I'm disappointed that Vega Frontier results were not included in the benches :-/

    AMD did not sample that card, and there's not much of a reason for us to include it now when the RX Vega is faster.

    Another Fury X fail. You'd have to be a hard core AMD fan to buy this over a GTX 1080, and that's not even taking into consideration the horrid power use compared to the 1080. Isn't that what AMD fans tell us is so important when comparing Ryzen to i7 CPUs in core/watt performance? Amazingly they are silent here.

    I do not care about power consumption. Only poor people care about power consumption. I will be purchasing an air cooled Vega 64.

    So Barnum was right in the end.
