    Looks like Spectre/Meltdown patches are having an impact on Intel performance. Anandtech results showing AMD in line or ahead of Intel for gaming. I'm waiting for Tech Reports updated results...
    Nah, there is something wrong there. They are redoing their tests.

    Anandtech's review is the outlier though.

    It does beg the question though, are other reviewers using historic benchmark data for intel chips or have they rebenched post patch
    There were lots of benchmarks after the spectre patch etc, there was no impact on gaming.

    Should be - AMD said they will keep using AM4 socket till 2020 - so as long as Ryzen 3 series is out before 2020 then it should fit
    Ryzen 3 out next year isn't it? Although if Intel keep dropping their arses AMD may drag out the release a bit more.

    I think there have been further patches more recently though (march).

    Good point man. Does it OC as well I wonder? You would prob need to delid unless it was soldered. AFAIK the 5820K's were soldered.
    i had one @ 4.5GHz on air with very little trouble - literally just set the multiplier. i do believe they were soldered too.

    Using a after market cooler with your ryzen CPU voids your warranty: https://support.amd.com/en-us/search/faq/147
    AMD Clarifies Warranty Terms for Ryzen CPU use with Third-Party Coolers

    As it turns out, this was an older support page that does not accurately reflect the warranty of modern AMD processors. AMD has since updated the warranty page to provide clarification.

    Now, the page reads that the warranty shall be null and void if the processor "is used with any heatsink/fan (HSF) that does not support operation of the AMD processor in conformance with AMD’s publicly available specifications."
