3DMark Port Royal: Real-Time Ray Tracing Benchmark: RTX ON
The start of the year has kicked off in a big way with the latest addition to the ever-growing 3DMark family of benchmarks with Port Royal, the world's first real-time ray tracing benchmark that I decided to run while writing my content for CES 2019.

AMD Radeon VII Detailed Some More: Die-size, Secret-sauce, Ray-tracing, and More
AMD pulled off a surprise at its CES 2019 keynote address, with the announcement of the Radeon VII client-segment graphics card targeted at gamers. We went hands-on with the card earlier this week. The company revealed a few more technical details of the card in its press-deck for the card. To begin with, the company talks about the immediate dividends of switching from 14 nm to 7 nm, with a reduction in die-size from 495 mm² on the "Vega 10" silicon to 331 mm² on the new "Vega 20" silicon. The company has reworked the die to feature a 4096-bit wide HBM2 memory interface, the "Vega 20" MCM now features four 32 Gbit HBM2 memory stacks, which make up the card's 16 GB of memory. The memory clock has been dialed up to 1000 MHz from 945 MHz on the RX Vega 64, which when coupled with the doubled bus-width, works out to a phenomenal 1 TB/s memory bandwidth.

AMD shares more details on Radeon VII
AMD Radeon Vega II = VII = 7 (nm) Some say that Radeon VII took everyone by surprise, others think it was imminent. The reality is that AMD is not abandoning high-performance graphics just yet, as the company is still planning to compete with NVIDIA Turing. AMD Radeon VII featuring 7nm Vega architecture comes with 3840 Stream Processors, which means that the GPU does not have all cores enabled. To justify the cost, the full chip is likely reserved for Radeon Pro/Instinct series.

Catherine Classic Review
Do you know what I like? Yes, I do like Scotch, but something else. Yes, I like beer too, and that does come into the story a little, but were not looking at booze. Giving up that easy?

Here are AMD's Radeon VII Benchmarks
AMD announced their Radeon VII card yesterday, and made some interesting performance claims to go with it. AMD says their 7nm Vega Radeon is at least 25% faster than Vega 64, and showed a few benchmarks with even higher gains during their CES presentation. But, in footnotes buried in their presentation and their press release, AMD spelled out the testing methods behind those claims. On January 3rd, AMD benched Vega 64 and Radeon VII on an Intel i7 7700K rig with 16GB of 3000Mhz DDR4. They didn't mention the motherboard or any other hardware specifics, but they did say they used "AMD Driver 18.50" and Windows 10. All the games they tested were run at "4K Max Settings," and they took the average framerate of 3 separate runs to get an average FPS measurement for each game. I've tabulated the benchmark data below (click for a larger image).

Zotac ZBOX CI660 nano barebones Mini-PC Review
Zotac continues to update their mini-PC lineup with the addition of the ZBOX CI660 Nano. It features an Intel i7-8550u with user-selected memory and storage with the barebones model. A Plus model offers 4 GB of DDR4 and a 120 GB SSD for those looking for something a bit tamer. Either selection provides not only exceptional performance but an entirely silent operation if you can handle the price.
