AMD Ryzen 7 3700X (Zen2) Review & Benchmarks – CPU 8-core/16-thread Performance

AMD Zen 2 CPU

What is “ZEN2”? AMD’s Zen2 (“Matisse”) is the “true” 2nd generation ZEN core on 7nm process shrink while the previous ZEN+ (“Pinnacle Ridge”) core was just an optimisation of the original ZEN (“Summit Ridge”) core that while socket compatible it introduces many design improvements over both previous cores. An APU … Read more…

The new Neural Networks (AI/ML) Benchmarks: RNN Architecture

RNN (Recurrent Neural Network)

What is a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN/LSTM)? A RNN is a type of neural network that is primarily made of of neurons that store their previous states thus are said to ‘have memory’. In effect this allows them to ‘remember’ patterns or sequences. However, they can still be used as … Read more…

The new Neural Networks (AI/ML) Benchmarks: CNN Architecture

CNN (Convolution Neural Network)

What is a Convolution Neural Network (CNN/ConvNet)? A CNN is a type of neural network that is primarily made of of neuron layers connected in such a way that they perform convolution over the previous layers: in effect they are filters over the input – the same way a blur/sharpen/edge/etc … Read more…
