    Some of these rumours about Zen 2 seem too good to be true. Some rather reputable people in the industry are saying it's a game changer, not seen since the original dual core days. Big hype to live up to. 12 cores boosting to 5Ghz seems like magic for a retail chip. I'd buy one in a minute, then pass down my 8700k to my son (lucky him)

    As long as AMD don't start acting like the dicks at NV and price their new CPUs at a billion dollars...

    A billion dollars for a 16 core chip seems well priced though.

    I'll settle for a 65w 8 core chip that can hit 5ghz, or near enough. So long as running 300 series motherboard performs well with the new chips. 300 and 400 were very similar, but this could be a bit more of a step that requires a newer board to get the most from it.

    You going to pair that 1070 with a new Ryzen chip
    If the rumors are correct it will nuke the second hand market for CPUs (well maybe after 3 months).
    Nah, I have a Xeon E5-2670 (8 core 16 thread 2.6-3.3GHz), my upgrade path is an E5-2690 v2 (10 core 20 thread 3-3.6GHz) or an E5-2697 v2 (12 core 24 thread 2.7-3.5GHz).

    All of which are sporting quad channel DDR3, so excessively more memory bandwidth than dual DDR4.

    Current chip should last me a while more yet, upgrade path continues to fall in price and I can recycle my motherboard when I finally do.

    I love Enterprise gear.

    What do you need all those cores for?

    It's just a gaming machine now, I have a laptop on a dock for working.

    For gaming, they're all becoming multi-threaded now, so what it loses on single it more than makes up for in multi at a fraction of the cost of a modern chip. And still supports PCI-E 3.0.

    Can get an 8 core, 16 thread Sandy Xeon for like $100USD which will handily beat a $400 6 core 6 thread consumer chip on multi.

    Oh, and secondhand DDR3 ECC is dime a dozen gigs because only Xeons can use it and most enterprises either have already shifted to new chips with DDR4 or just never upgrade the hardware because of servicing contracts.

    So every time a recycler pulls apart a server there's no real buyer market.

    I wish multi was better in games than it is, but a higher clocked, lower core count chip will still beat a slower higher cored chip. The server stuff has pricing going for it. They are good performers overall, for the money. But buying second hand server gear to build a gaming system isn't for everyone.

  9. Post
    No doubt its good for the money but I would still go with Ryzen if buying new.

    I went from a Xeon (which was great bang for buck) to the 2700x which is twice as fast. Had it for a year now and feel absolutely no need to upgrade yet.

    It is a great CPU and does everything I need with ease. And as far as gaming goes, I play at 4k and with a high-res VR headset.

    "AMD Ryzen series CPUs (Matisse) support DDR4 4400+(OC) / 4300(OC) / 4266(OC) / 4200(OC) / 4133(OC) / 3466(OC) / 3200 / 2933 / 2667 / 2400 / 2133 ECC & non-ECC, un-buffered memory*"

    That some nice memory bandwidth there

    You not wanting that 15w TDP x570 chipset?
    I will be interested to see how fast you can push NVME drives with PCIE 4.0, im okay with active cooling so long as its quiet.
    Don't have the $$$ for a x570, and to be honest I don't know that I even need an x470 either.

    New nvme drives to take Advantage of pcie4 are emerging

    A day away from Launch new geekbench results have just shown up 14% ipc gain on this benchmark with slower 2666 memory (vs the 2600 with 3200mhz someone tested it against) only 4ghz part, speculation is that this part is a low wattage part 50w.

    So this would be the 3300 chip?

    Na I don't think adore tv was right to be honest I think this is the new 3600.

    12 core confirmed
    Ryzen 9 confirmed
    3700x $329
    3800X $399 8c16t
    3900X $499 12c24t
    Something about 4.6 GHz
    56 x570 mobos, most at Computex
    7/7 launch
    3700x is 28% faster than the 9700k in cinebench r20
    15% IPC increase!!!

    If you rewind the AMD stream it shows the practices

    Computex AMD stream at 2pm NZ

  19. Post
    Pretty much as expected. Keen as for 3700x.

  20. Post
    Hopefully the next lineup of CPU's impress. Would like to upgrade from my 1700x.

  21. Post
    Sounds juicy. No 16 core part yet though? Not that I mind, 12 core is more than enough.

    stream starting!

    The opening video seemed to confirm AMD will have hardware in Google Stadia we know its not the CPU since thats Intel must be a custom GPU chip.

    They're going to talk about NAVI!
