I was wondering that too, hopefully it's not an indicator that the silicon is already close to it's frequency limits :P

From Austin Evan's video which was taken down ;) showed LN2 overclockers getting 5.15 GHz on all 8 cores if I remember correctly. This shows hope for lower core count parts with lower TDP will be able to get above 4 GHz on air unless the chip in the video was very cherry picked to OC that much.

Some people have stated march 2nd (citing AMD said they would launch all sku's at once) others have said it would be later into march/april. 

Well with a 8 core that has a 65w TDP, probably not

Thanks for your answer. Well, I guess we will see next week whether it is march 2nd or not!

XFR range of just 100 MHz? Seems a little low innit?

To be fair intel 3.0 boost is just 200 MHz.

Not going to rush, just want to see when/what is coming out exactly. Was thinking of building a budget PC so the only processor I'm interested in for now are the R3 1100 and 1200/x. Would like to see how they do in gaming as my initial plan was to go for G4560 and RX470/480 (because I'm on a budget). But yeah, after all the ryzen hype will wait some more to see the exact pricing of the R3 series and how they perform in gaming.

Daaaayum that's nice!

Sadly no news about the cheaper ones, i was hoping to get a 6C/12T cpu but it seems like that's not going to be the case :( At least as far as the launch goes.


If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

They say you can preorder it....except anywhere in Canada, it seems. Newegg.ca has it but auto notify only. NCIX and Direct Canada have nothing. Tiger Direct has nothing. Canada Computers has nothing. Memory Express had a listing for like 0.5 seconds before pulling it. Amazon.ca has nothing.


Edit: Oh after 1pm my time. Gotcha.

The most important question is: IS IT HOT??

You have CPU's and GPU's mixed up.

Preorder starts today at 1pm Eastern US Time!!

 

https://www.pcper.com/news/Processors/AMD-Ryzen-Pre-order-Starts-Today-Specs-and-Performance-Revealed

 

Quote

I know that many of you have been waiting months and years to put your money down for the Zen architecture and Ryzen processors from AMD. Well that day is finally here: AMD is opening pre-orders for Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1700 processors.

That’s the good news. The bad news? You’ll be doing it without the guidance of independent reviews.

 

..snip..

 

Update Feb 22 @ 4:27am: An official Intel spokesman did respond to today's AMD news with the following: 

“We take any competition seriously but as we’ve learned, consumers usually take a ‘wait and see’ approach on performance claims for untested products. 7th Gen Intel® Core™ delivers the best experiences, and with 8th Gen Intel Core and new technologies like Intel® Optane™ memory coming soon, Intel will not stop raising the bar.” ­

While nothing drastic, the Intel comment is interesting in a couple of ways. First, the fact that Intel is responding at all means that they are rattled to some degree. Second, mention of the 8th Gen Core processor series indicates that they want potential buyers to know that something beyond Kaby Lake is coming down the pipe, a break from Intel's normally stoic demeanor.

Links don't show results yet, since its not yet 1pm Eastern. Haven't heard anything on when boards are released.

Seeing as XFR offers up to an additional 100Mhz on top of the ordinary boost, appears to be catered to people who use aftermarket coolers without any OC.

Can't wait to see how the 4 and 6 core SKUs fare. Imagine how low in TDP they can go... and with hyperthreading they will be poised to take over the budget, laptop and HTPC markets.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

You think they'll ship to Canada? >_>

I'd hope so. I'm gonna be ordering it during Calc today, and hoping to see something from Linus shortly. They will at least ship to one destination in Canada I guess.

EDIT: A BioStar board says it releases March 2nd

THis is what a MSI board says

Are we getting Athlons too?

They probably never had any. Asus, MSi and such probably just wanted to list them on newegg to add to get preorders and such

I want to see independent benchmarks. I don't want to see only hype from AMD

I totally understand. Some of us have been waiting a long time so there will be hype. Regardless of benchmarks, as long as the performance is even close to what they state, it looks like a definitely sizeable upgrade for anyone with an FX processor.

 

So yes, we'll eventually get legitimate bench marks, but I'm going to preorder anyways.

Makes sense. Still checking, and nothing on Amazon. Although, people gotta check and make sure they are purchasing from the legitimate preorder resellers. I'm only gonna assume there will be a lot of fraud accounts selling preorders...

I'm upgrading from an old ivy bridge @ 4ghz so pretty much anything will be an upgrade for me at this point, even FX 8350 and such with more or less the same IPC and more "cores" lol

Yes, agreed. I purchased my FX 6350 because it was on sale for stupid cheap, and I figured I'd just save up for Zen and make my decision then.

 

Many people question the pricing. How can they sell that performance and such a low price. Who said that performance had to be expensive? Just because Intel sells high doesn't mean they don't make 80% profit on their sales. What are the real manufacturing costs vs retail price?

 

I'm curious for both Intel and Zen chips as far as that financial breakdown goes.

AM4 is compatible with a bunch of different processors. 7th gen A series and Athlon APUs/CPUs are Bristol Ridge aka Excavator-based processors that have been out for a while. They're not new.
