  1. Source: https://techreport.com/news/31919/ryzen-threadripper-cpus-will-offer-16-cores-and-32-threads So just after the tons of rumors about an even higher end "consumer" platform from AMD were going around, AMD actually went ahead and announced it. It looks like Threadripper will go straight against the higher end Skylake-X CPUs. It's interesting that AMD has, just like Intel, decided to split the platforms, except that AMD has decided to make their higher end platform only make sense to consumers that need a lot of cores. It'll be interesting to see the prices of these CPUs, and to see how Skylake-X vs Threadripper turns out. EDIT: Note that this is not a repost, due to it being an official announcement, whereas other threads are leaks and rumors. EDIT V2.0: Courtesy of @NumLock21, it seems Skroutz has accidentally leaked two of the threadripper CPUs. Alternatively, you can view it here: http://www.skroutz.gr/c/32/cpu-epeksergastes.html?keyphrase=threadripper The main info this seems to have given us is confirmation of the core count, clock speeds, and names of the two flagship threadripper cpus, the Ryzen Threadripper 1998 and 1998x. These are both 16 core CPUs and use the "SP3r2" socket, with the 1998 being clocked at 3.2 ghz and 1998x at 3.5 ghz. Cache size as well as turbo and XFR speeds are still unknown. It seems that sites like wccftech were actually accurate this time, with their leaked list showing the socket being SP3r2 and the 1998 and 1998x having base clocks of 3.2 and 3.5 ghz, respectively. It'll be interesting to see if we'll get more info about Threadripper at Computex.
  2. Before I ask my quesiton, let me state: the 1700 vs 1700X argument has been done to death, and I know 99.9% of the people go for the 1700 because of the overclockability and price. The model of the chip is based on voltage binning. However, I want to bring a variation to the argument: if you have better odds of winning the silicon lottery for a minimal price difference ($40 where I live), would you do it for the higher voltage binning? If you already plan on overclocking the unit and already have a cooling solution with that in mind, could it be worth the small price difference?
  3. source: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/vme-broken-on-amd-ryzen/ what is VME? also known as Virtual-8086 Mode Enhancements, it allows execution of real mode apps that cannot (were not designed) run in protected mode OS it's also used in hardware virtualization to emulate multiple x86 CPUs the Ryzen implementation what does it mean for the end-user? if the end user tries to run XP / WS2003 and earlier OSes, the system will either crash or hang - this affects both direct installs or through a VM not many end users need to run older OSes, but this particular issue can be problematic in a enterprise environments where they might need to run old OSes to keep their old equipment functional - if it ain't broke, don't fix it so far, reports have indicated Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows NT, FreeDOS to have issues while trying to run on Ryzen CPUs the workaround, at least if you run a VM environment - mask out the VME CPUID bit (bit 1 in register EDX of leaf 1)
  4. So...think the upcoming releases of the supposedly AMD 12C/16C 4094 pin chips are going to be within the financial reach of normal men, or are these intended to be new Xeon competitors? http://hothardware.com/news/amd-16-core-threadripper-cpus-to-utilize-4094-pin-socket
  5. Source is WCCFtech so take with the usual grain of salt: http://wccftech.com/amd-taking-the-covers-off-vega-navi-may-16th/ They then immediately add: No product launches, but roadmaps roadmaps and more roadmaps. And maybe some Vega details, although that's slated for its own event, most likely to be held during Computex. What makes WCCFtech think May 16th will be "the" day? Well, there's one official AMD event on that date, namely the 2017 Financial Analyst Day: http://ir.amd.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=74093&p=irol-analystday . All the big names will be present (Lisa Su, Mark Papermaster, Raja Koduri, the lot), so they'll talk about something. If it's Vega or not, we'll have to wait and see. But again, take this with a massive amount of salt. It's WCCFtech after all.
  6. Currently i have an FX 6300 which is failing to hold its weight in todays games. I will be upgrading to a Ryzen 1500X. I just need to help and some steps on how to upgrade my processor. I know how to take the mobo and processor out, but what i need help with is when i plug everything up for the first time, do i have to install windows first? or bois updates? i dont know where to go after i install the cpu. thanks
  7. source ChipHell via: http://digiworthy.com/2017/03/18/amd-16-core-ryzen-cpu/ 1st of, HEDT stands for High End Desktop we already know Intel already sampled Skylake-X and KabyLake-X since November last year; we also know Intel is planning to replace the current X99 HEDT platform with a new one, the X299 is it plausible AMD plans to introduce a in-between Ryzen and Naples platform? rumors say they'll do it gaming wise, this platform shouldn't even be considered computing wise it has the potential to put the screws to Intel, but it greatly depends on what Intel will have to offer and what SKUs AMD will present as alternatives - don't expect pricing to be "normal" ps: if you're expecting this to be AM4 compatible ... tough luck --- edit March 21nd more info: https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/AMD-Ryzen-Spekulationen-um-High-End-Plattform-mit-16-Kernen-und-vier-Speicherkanaelen-3660131.html unnamed source has confirmed to Heise.DE that AMD is working on a HEDT platform also, the new socket will be a variation of SP3 (LGA 4094 Naples), SP3r2
  8. source: although not particularly stated by MicroSoft, one of the March 15th updates to Windows 10 has some Ryzen tweaks as the source shows, no gains in TW: Warhammer, Cinebench, HandBrake nor Batman: AA; but a 35% increase in UT3 benchmark tool of ~35% (not 45% as stated in the tweet) from what I'm getting, the new scheduler behaviour is to prioritize work to cores (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14) and not SMT threads (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15) - kinda treating it as SMT off new testing needs to be done
  9. source: https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Bug-in-AMD-Ryzen-Kompletter-Systemabsturz-bei-manchen-FMA3-Anwendungen-3641409.html http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=167605 HWBot users have discovered a reproductible hardware bug that seems to affect FMA3 instructions the bug appears to show up when it gets to if this is a instruction set but and not something else, this could be potentially patched via a BIOS micro-code update so far, this bug has been confirmed on: Heise.DE was able to reproduce the bug with Ryzen 7 1700X on the MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium and a Ryzen 7 1700 on the Asus Crosshair VI Hero instruction set bugs are not uncommon, as Intel's own Skylake launch was troubled with AVX bug that was discovered couple of months after at this time, AMD did not respond to the inquiry made by Heise.DE --- update: 16th of March more info on this from PCPer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDrOQrjJTSs it seems that the FMA3 set isn't actually bugged, but it seems it doesn't have enough power delivered to it as 25% of the people who OCed their CPU were able to ran the test successfully sources inside AMD have said that it's a known issue and a BIOS update is indeed planned
  10. ---- Note to moderators: I created this new thread since the build log has been dormant for such a long time that reviving the old thread would be tantamount to necromancy. Should you prefer that however, feel free to inform me and merge the threads. ---- An Introduction Nearly two years ago I started a build log on these forums as part of a project to visually enhance my otherwise perfectly functional, albeit partially aging, gaming rig, which I'd already previously named Melanie in accordance with my preponderance for giving girls' names to my computers. I worked on it for a bit, and then I got kind of sidetracked and forgot about the whole thing. Part of the motivation for upgrading Melanie was not necessarily related to aesthetics, but more to the fact that my AMD Phenom II X6 1055T was starting to show its age somewhat, and while the FX-series had never represented an actual upgrade, the prospect of the then-recently announced Zen microarchitecture was very enticing indeed. Here we are, more than a dozen months later, and the microarchitecture in question is finally about to get released. To that end, and with my desire to upgrade my CPU still very strong, I decided to officially revisit this build in a build log here. A Small Sitrep Given that I quite suddenly gave up on the old build log without having achieved even half of its goals, particularly when it comes to aesthetics, the current state of Melanie can really best be summed up as "something of a half-arsed effort". It looks perfectly functional, and I'm still very much in love with the way that graphics card paintjob turned out. The colour scheme is also mostly on point and consistent throughout the build, though the brown PCB of my ASRock 970 Extreme4 is still as much of an eyesore as it ever was. Equally, the Kingston HyperX Fury DIMMs, while made by the greatest RAM manufacturer on the planet and certainly not ugly, don't have quite the "punch" that I expected them to have when I bought them; they look rather docile next to the graphics card and even the CPU cooler. Fortunately, the upgrade to Zen will give me cause to replace both those components (even though at the time, I bought the Furys in the hope that Zen would have DDR3 support). For those who immediately clicked on the link above to go through my old build log, I have to add a few things to bring you up to speed. Since that build log went dead, I actually went out and bought a windowed side panel, as the folly of doing a lot of internal surgery that won't be seen by anyone started to dawn on me more and more, as well as an extra dual-SSD tray from Phanteks that is officially sold for the Enthoo Primo, but I found works just as well in the Enthoo Pro. Sadly neither of those things are visible in the picture above. What is visible is that I changed my boot drive, from a Samsung 850 Evo 250GB to a Kingston HyperX Predator 240GB. Yes, I know that going from a SATA SSD to a non-NVMe M.2 SSD isn't necessarily the greatest speed upgrade you can make, but the M.2 drive actually has a very specific role to play in the new build, which I will get to later. A Parts List Since the main part of this build log will be a platform upgrade, things such as the PSU, graphics card, case and storage drives will remain unchanged. The CPU cooler will also stay, as I really love the slim yet powerful PH-TC14S. A quick rundown of the current configuration (excluding fans and non-boot drives) would come down to the following: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (stock clocks at 2.8GHz) Phanteks PH-TC14S ASRock 970 Extreme 4 Kingston HyperX Fury (2x8GB, 1866MHz, CAS9) Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming Kingston HyperX Predator 240GB Corsair RM750X Phanteks Enthoo Pro I shan't go through the entire list again for the system as it will be, but the new CPU, motherboard and RAM are as follows: AMD Ryzen7 1800X Gigabyte Aorus X370-Gaming 5 G.Skill TridentZ (2x8GB, 3200MHz, CAS16) A minor difference that is worth being born in mind is that in the current configuration, my GTX 970 is running stock clocks, because it's already borderline bottlenecked by the CPU anyway and giving it extra voltage for no significant extra performance seems a bit silly. I might give it a bit of an overclock as part of the build log, even if the main limiting factor of the 970 at the moment is not its GPU computing power but its VRAM capacity. Just to throw in an extra picture, here's the preordered CPU and motherboard (the RAM I've already got): As you can plainly see from the little picture (or Gigabyte's site, if you don't want to strain your eyes), the Aorus board fits the existing aesthetic of the build very neatly, and I don't anticipate having to do any painting or other modding on the heatsinks and cosmetic shrouds of the board. A Few Photos As I mentioned, I've already got the RAM. I preordered it a while ago because of the rising RAM prices and my unwillingness to pay more money for the exact same product if I waited until now to buy the stuff. As we know, Ryzen CPUs are currently having some issues with high-speed RAM, so I'll probably clock it down from 3200MHz to 2666MHz until the rumoured fix in the shape of a BIOS update comes along. I will be painting the coolers on these DIMMs to make them match the theme of the build a bit better. As it stands, they already fit the colour scheme excellently, but I want to have more blue in the system, and so the black parts of the RAM coolers will be painted metallic blue (for reference, it's the same as the backplate of the graphics card in the sitrep picture) Another thing that I've already got is the AM4 mounting kit for my PH-TC14S. Phanteks was kind enough to send me one free of charge, which I think is excellent, and it dropped on the mat just today. I was expecting an AM4 kit, but what I actually got is a kit that fits both AM4's and the old AMD mounting holes, in the same way that many coolers already do with Intel's 115X series of sockets and their ever-so-slightly different mounting holes. Nice! An Outro That wraps it up for this first installment in my new build log. I'll be back tomorrow to show off some of the renders for the to-be-3D-printed shrouds* as well as more elaboration on what other things I plan to do. Equally, expect a lengthy update once the CPU and motherboard have been delivered. Thanks very much for bearing with me, and I promise I'll actually finish the build this time. * = There's a teaser for the PSU shroud in the header image already, if you truly cannot wait.
  11. source: https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/ryzen-strictly-technical.2500572/ "The Slit", established member over Anand's forums has done some testing that feature more technical benchmarks that you don't usually see go check the source for all the benches and results plus in depth technical details on the CPU and chipset (Zeppelin; the chipset is inside the CPU) the tests were conducted at 3.5Ghz mobo used ASUS CROSSHAIR VI HERO results with ER mean extremes removed (highest and lowest) let's talk IPC: back in 2015, AMD estimated a 40% IPC increase over Excavator, they achieved that and 6.6% over it - that's good what's not so good is that Zen's IPC is practically lower than Haswell's, a microarchitecture that's already 4y old - AMD took 5y in development to produce a CPU that's slower than an already 4y old microarchitecture [extremes removed] IPC gains: Zen over Excavator: 46.62% Zen over Haswell: -7.03% KabyLake over Haswell: 14.29% (my math, take with salt) Zen over KabyLake: -25.56% the FMA set implementation in Zen seems very problematic as tests with Linpack and Himeno shows: Himeno benchmark (evaluates performance of incompressible fluid analysis code - takes in measurements to precede major loops in solving the Poisson's equation solution using the Jacobi iteration method) shows particularly bad results: and before you start blaming the compiler, here's what "The Slit" said: GCC - GNU Compiler Collection MSVC - Microsoft Visual C++ compiler ICL - Intel C++ compiler --- AMD needs to get their house in order, because after seeing what happened with this launch, I don't see a bright future for AMD on the market Intel has nothing to fear from Zen - AMD's products for enterprise (Naples), based on the current IPC, have no reason to exist other than being a cheap alternative
  12. source: https://community.amd.com/community/gaming/blog/2017/03/13/amd-ryzen-community-update?sf62107357=1 in the light of AMD's own investigations and other 3rd party investigation into Windows' 10 ability to properly identify Ryzen CPUs and assigns threads accordingly, AMD's Robert Hallock posted on AMD's blog: so ... ladies and gentlemen - do not expect AMD / MicroSoft to release a W10 patch that will magically fix Ryzen's poor gaming performance - it is what it is and nothing will change that however, AMD plans to release a patch that addresses the power plan issues, in April so why W7 performs better? because W7 is the better OS
  13. *Entering salt factory, safety gear and hard hat required!* Speculations shows a leak chart from AMD internal slides, on the next gen cpu called "Pinnacle Ridge". This could be AMD "Zen 2". It features up to 8 Zen cores, for both mobile and desktop. Desktop gets 95w tdp and ddr4. Also in 2018, Raven Ridge get VEGA 11 gpu cores built into the cpu. And there seems to be some Summit in China. https://videocardz.com/67362/amd-pinnacle-ridge-to-feature-up-to-8-zen2-cores
  14.

  15. Hey guys, what temps are you getting with your ryzen CPU's, is anyone having issues with idle temps? Both my brother and I have H100i's (gen 1) on our chips and are seeing temps around 50°C idle. We have reseated and checked different programs for a different result but to no avail. Could this be an issue with low mounting pressure? Load temps are around 60°C.
  16. this can create a shitstorm and I don't understand why are they opening themselves to more fires to extinguish both ASUS and MSI were caught with performance altered cards sent to reviewers why, just why!? --- apparently the BIOS was not distributed to the press only if you search hard enough, it's available on ASUS site: ----
  17. source: https://videocardz.com/66846/amd-ryzen-7-1800x-review-leaked chinese website ChipHell leaked their benchmarks results ahead of time 1800X single thread performance is, as expected, weak; multithread perf is on par (or better/worse) compared to i7 6900K; the memory / cache latency is abysmal: synthetic graphics perf puts it on par with i7 7700K the benchmarks seems to be done with the previous version of the altered BIOS we're discussing here: would be interesting to see if others do benches on same platform, with the new BIOS, and how they compare generally the 1800X is faster than the i7 7700K, but also quite more expensive
  18. source: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=AMD-Ryzen-Newer-Kernel Phoronix got their hands on some info and it appears that Zen CPUs will need a new kernel to operate at full functionality Ubuntu 16.10 shipped with kernel 4.8 and the new changes are part of 4.10 kernel (backported to 4.9.10) - the issue (if it boots) is that SMT will be disabled with older kernels at least people on Linux need to update their OS' Kernel and not switch the entire fucking OS .... Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) is planned to ship in April and will be based on Kernel 4.9.x --- secondary issue: most AM4 mobos will ship with Realtek ALC1220 audio codec - this will get support only in Kernel 4.11
  19. Now before you guys say anything, I have a list from online of the available heatsinks and AIO for the Ryzen AM4 platform. My main question is, because I saw it on another tech site, that the previous AM3+ stock socket design coolers are compatible with AM4 sockets without removing the sides where you would normally clamp it on. Does anyone have any information on whether or not it's been confirmed that stock design coolers will work on AM4? Apparently, AM3+ and AM4 is the same size socket and has the same specification on the mounting. The only thing that is difference are the screw placements. Thanks guys! PS... Already preordered and I can't wait!
  20. Zen is the architecture. Ryzen is the consumer. Naples is the server cpu. I can't wait to get Linus testing the 35core cpu from AMD. and get rid of that stupid watercool server.
  21. It seems that quite a bit of info has come out about the zen architecture thanks to David Kanter, who was the same guy who figured out that nvidia's Maxwell and Pascal GPU architectures are utilizing tile based rasterization. You can check out his full deep dive here. Now I won't pretend to even understand half of it, but some of those of you out there with EE, CE, CS, or any other major that required extensive knowledge about CPU architecture may find it quite interesting. As well, if you're interested, David Kanter also did an interview with PCPer about the zen architecture which you can check out here: I think that all this info arose from ISSCC. I've found it quite interesting even if I didn't understand all of it. It seems though that zen won't be very suitable for HPC; perhaps they did this to save die space in order to maximize profits of consumer and server CPUs. As well, it seems zen ipc would be between Ivy bridge and haswell. I'm honestly not surprised, there have only been a limited amount of official benchmarks from AMD and since they were the ones showing them off I wouldn't be surprised if they were cherry picked. However, even if it's only ivy bridge IPC, zen still could very well shake up the whole CPU market.
  22. source: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3167279/computers/amd-sorry-there-will-be-no-official-ryzen-drivers-for-windows-7.html via: http://digiworthy.com/2017/02/09/amd-ryzen-drivers-for-windows-7/ you should not believe rumors and only what comes from the mouths of the actual people involved, in this case AMD AMD said it validated if Zen works on Windows 7, but did not say they will actually support it --- my guess is that ComputerBase.DE misspoke when originally reported Zen will get W7 drivers - must've been AMD saying they validated W7, and CB.de interpreting it wrong --- let's get some things straight because I see a lot of people misrepresenting the issue the problem is not directly the CPU (RyZen), but the chipset drivers - unless AMD didn't do major augments to the x86 arch, Windows doesn't need specific Zen kernel patches for W7, neither W10 (for that matter) the issues are the chipset family, and the other integrated devices in the CPU and chipset - integrated graphics, USB, SATA controller (RAID) .. etc
  23. i wrought a long thing, it was all shit. i just want to know what our best guesses for the price(s) of the Ryzen 6 core chips are.

So I'm a week away from buying and building this PC PCPartPicker part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/hJ933F Price breakdown by merchant: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/hJ933F/by_merchant/ CPU: Intel Core i5-6400 2.7GHz Quad-Core Processor (£165.00 @ Aria PC) Motherboard: Asus H110M-A/M.2 Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£44.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk) Memory: PNY Anarchy 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£39.55 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Seagate BarraCuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£35.94 @ Aria PC) Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 480 4GB RS Video Card (£188.00 @ Amazon UK) Case: Thermaltake Versa H15 MicroATX Mid Tower Case (£34.99 @ Amazon UK) Power Supply: Corsair CXM 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£47.91 @ Ebuyer) Total: £556.38 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-02-04 23:02 GMT+0000 But i saw this article about Zen http://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-am4-processor-family-leak-r7-1800x-flagship/ and began to wonder. I have currently found no alternative to this i5, a £13-180ish quad core or higher with a good upgrade path, but it suffers from reasonably low single core performance. Will Zen offer a compelling and preferably overclockable CPU in this price range with decent overclocking boards? If so is it worth the wait till march?
  25. Hi all, I currently run an i7 920 overclocked at 4GHz so am way behind in technology. I have decided to wait for AMD Zen (Rysen) before deciding which CPU to go with because it looks promising so far. However, I heard they are only going to be supported by Windows 10? Is this true? If so, why? I like Windows 7 and would prefer to keep it over 10.
