Overclocking

Overclockers: Don’t Skimp on Stress Testing!

Overclocking is so pervasive that CPU, RAM and motherboard manufacturers cater to it. Modern CPUs are smart enough to self-throttle if they reach a critical temperature, making it safer than it once was. Further, power-saving technologies such as core parking and frequency scaling help resist thermal build-up. Given this, you can probably get away with […]

Coreprio v0.0.5.0 – Inclusion/Exclusion Patterns

Coreprio has been updated to allow for inclusion and exclusion patterns (list of applications to target). These apply to all features of Coreprio. Wildcards are allowed. The console mode utility allows these as well, via the new ‘–inclusions’ and ‘–exclusions’ parameters. Since Coreprio’s Dynamic Local Mode works best for applications that do not put a […]

Process Lasso's new CPU Group Display

Lasso: Processor Group Display

Process Lasso now displays the processor group(s) an application’s threads are running on. We wrote about processor groups a while back. They exist to allow for systems with more than 64 logical CPU cores. In Process Lasso, we refer to Processor Groups as ‘CPU Groups’. By default, an application’s threads are assigned to only a […]

Coreprio: Bitsum’s Own Dynamic Local Mode

Coreprio is Bitsum’s custom implementation of AMD’s Dynamic Local Mode. It is more configurable than AMD’s implementation, allowing the user to set the prioritized affinity, thread count and refresh rate. History When the high core count ThreadRipper 2990wx and 2970wx were developed, AMD had to make due with the 4 memory channels available in the TR4 […]
