HWINFO gets support for AMD Starship and Mattise CPUs

Published: Jan 31st 2018, 17:09 GMT   Comments

The latest changelog from HWINFO lists unreleased technology from Intel and AMD.

Ice Lake-SP, AMD Mattise/Starship

HWINFO now recognizes upcoming Pinnacle Ridge chipset for 400-series motherboards. Those are expected somewhere in March with availability officially planned for April. The 400-series chipset is meant for Zen+ processors, but it’s not mandatory upgrade for those who already own AM4 motherboards.

Intel’s next-gen server CPU codenamed Ice Lake-SP is also making an appearance. A derivative of server architectures is often used for enthusiast desktop platform. So far the only architecture listed in long-term roadmaps was Cascade Lake-X (planned for Q4 2018). The server Ice Lake-SP architecture could be offered alongside desktop Cascade Lake-X.

Changes in HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 v5.72:

Added recognition of AMD 400-series chipset.
Improved recognition of Bay Trail steppings.
Enhanced reporting of turbo ratio limits with fused and resolved values (BDX, SKX).
Added option to disable access to Corsair and some Asetek-based coolers.
Added recognition of some future AMD Vega and Navi GPUs.
Added NVIDIA Quadro V100.
Added reporting of GPU VRAM module model for some AMD GPUs.
Fixed enumeration of RAID drives on AMD promontory chipsets.
Fixed disk activity sensor names on some RAID systems.
Enhanced preliminary support of Ice Lake-SP (ICX).
Fixed reporting of Total Memory Encryption feature status in summary.
Added reporting of active memory channels on AMD Zen.
Enhanced monitoring of Intel GPU video decode usage.
Fixed flickering of RTSS OSD in some applications with high framerates.
Added monitoring of Corsair H80i Pro, H100i Pro, H115i Pro and H150i Pro.
Improved enumeration of network adapters.
Enhanced support of AMD Starship, Matisse and Radeon RX Vega M.
Enhanced monitoring of new Intel Compute Card models.
Unified HWiNFO32 and HWiNFO64 packages (universal installer, combined portable).

Mattise is a codename for desktop Zen2 architecture, which has reportedly been finalized in terms of the design.

AMD’s Starship first appeared in leaked data-center slides from early 2016. This roadmap, which is rather outdated, outlines long-term plans for enterprise CPUs. If HWINFO support means anything, it probably means that Starship has not been canceled and it should appear with Zen+/Zen2. The Starship is known as a 48-core processor with 96-threads.
