  2. Another INTEL bug | ZombieLoad / Microarchitectural Data Sampling

    There have been quite a few variants since the original spectre / meltdown revelations, this one appears different yet equally severe. Details are of course still coming but atm there is little...

    Any update?

    Curious, AMD states there are BIOS updates from vendors to address these. I don't however see anything listed from ASUS?

    The bugs btw are _nothing_ like Spetre or Meltdown. If anything they are...

    If you mean the thread ripping (no pun intended I swear!) - it became fairly well known. Given it affects different boards I'm less inclined to believe it's an Asus specific problem though. Short...

    4k blocks are the default in just about every OS so the implications could be severe. I'm a bit confused looking at their results though. He's trying to do an AB comparison but not keeping the...

    Depends what benchmarks you're referring to and more importantly which mediation was used. The original proposed solution at least in Linux, from Intel, has or had quite a bite more overhead then...

    Thanks. Wasn't sure where to ask, support really didn't have a clue either (understandable).

    Think it's critical vendors are open with their users on what is going on.. It's quite amazing and...

    I do but it has nothing to do with the number of VMs.

    It will hit enterprise users hard regardless.
  9. SPECTRE and MELTDOWN: Bug rocks Intel / ARM CPUs

    Kinda glad I bought AMD this round. For those who don't know there is a new bug affecting just about every SKU from Intel made in the last .. ohh.. _DECADE_ or so. It's actually worse then F00F or...

    Interesting problem. Only Creative can fix the hardware or drivers but something to test would be hitting f8 while windows starts. Should bring up some boot options (like safe mode). You don't...

    OK? I mean, you keep saying that but I never asked for schematics .



    .. and that would by why I'm asking.



    That may be the case with Windows and UEFI but I'm neither booting Windows nor...

    What? Sorry I have no idea who you are nor if you work for Asus or not. Do you?

    Manufactures do not, understandably, want end users simply removing hardware from a live system. Especially in consumer electronics since they cannot among other things, guarantee all hardware will...

    I get that this isn't for the faint of heart but neither is half the things on the board (probe points for example). PCIe most certainly supports hotswap. Says nothing about the hardware itself...
  15. Technical explaination of PCIE dipswitches?

    Curious feature of this board are the dipswitches that supposedly disable individual PCIe slots. Does anyone know how exactly they do that? Is it the card boots but is thrown in some kind of sleep...

    I've had the detect HDD error pop up randomly.. Ironically, it was with their included flash stick installed. I had to keep it out or the thing wouldn't post at all then one day it just started...

    Newer kernel but your setup is quite similular to mine. Curious, did you run into any problems booting with both 1080TI's? Board won't even post for me ...
  18. CPU upgrade... Threadripper should be called Hair ripper

    First post, be gentle? :)

    Debated writing this at all because on one hand I view it as free tech support and thus reward for bad behavior. On the other, people should really be warned.

    First,...
