Yeah, It does not sit well with the intel crowd. Especially those that just got the 8086 or the 9900. Looks like AMD is going to shit all over that parade.
its funny how none of us believe this is true, because after these last ten years intel has trained us to limit our expectations..
but damn, maybe I should buy even more AMD stock...
Can you imagine a 16c/32t CPU at 5.1ghz? That is fucking mind boggling.....Need Kyle to see if that is on all cores!
I watched this on my 4790k rig. I could swear, after the video was over, my little intel 4790 was trying harder...
That is funny as hell ^.^
Have been wanting to do an upgrade for quite awhile now but did not want to jump on win 10 crud until they figure some of it out more, more mainly from a price/performance aspect, 2600x look "sweet" almost jumped on when pricing here in great white north dropped a few times (just a tad over $230 plus tax/ship) but at the same time my funds available to do such not in greatest shape (life one situation after the other)
$2800+ top to bottom build is not exactly pocket change like it appears to be with some folks.
Ram pricing all over the damn place and gpu that I would have liked to have seen by now has not come about (not Nv guy, have not been for many years)
If there is a nice Zen 2 3xxx chip for a good price along with Navi Gpu to finally replace my aged phenom II 955 (980 speeds) Radeon 7870 system that has treated me so well (if some of the "leak" rings true) than will at least have an option should the funds be available.
Maybe there will also be even better 5xx motherboards to support them with the price reduction that 4xx were supposed to have (didn't but that much more RGB crap lol).
We shall see soon enough, let's hope stock price jumps accordingly, as long as it "breaks" ~9400 USD (360 shares) I will be happy (break even plus a few bucks) be ecstatic if it booms at that magical $32 plus per share mark..no reason why it should not IF they release on time with as good if not better performance/price and feature set with new motherboard to back them up...hopefully is a wonderful new year (for everyone of course) fast approaching ^.^
Are the R 9s four 4 core chiplets? That's TR territory.
Yeah, four chiplets plus io die would be too big for an AM4 package–it just fits with a bit of breathing room on TR4/SP3.two 8 core chiplets i believe since the chiplets can be configured up to 8 cores
Also for those asking if it will stay on the am4 socket, it will. AMD said that the am4 socket will be supported till 2020, after that it will be am5 and so on
God I hope the bit about x570 being required for the 16 core parts isn't right. I'm gonna be pissed being as I just bought a Crosshair VII Hero earlier this year. If ASUS doesn't find a way to make it work (being as this board already has an auxiliary power connector for the CPU) I'm gonna be seriously torn about shelling for a $500 processor and another new motherboard.
So wait, AMD's making a $130 6 core Ryzen CPU with Vega graphics? Are you shitting me? My computers feel old already.
