  6. Lightman liked MDolenc's post in the thread Nvidia Ampere Discussion [2020-05-14].

    It sort of does reduce footprint. It can keep data compressed in L2 so there is more cache available. Can't reduce footprint in main...

  9. Lightman liked pjbliverpool's post in the thread AMD: Navi Speculation, Rumours and Discussion [2019].

  13. Lightman liked Ext3h's post in the thread AMD: Navi Speculation, Rumours and Discussion [2019].
