I know it is only 4 pound of but every little helps and it's cheaper
Go AMD

Yeah apparently the price went up oO Seems like a good processor but I will wait for 1600x

Again , don't see why you'd pre order a cpu . There will be plenty at launch and decent independent benchmarks not the supposedly "leaked" rubbish .Not saying these will be bad before anyone tells me how amazing these will be

They had the conference yesterday, go check out Linus on YouTube, the actual figures are up and are mighty impressive.

The leaked benchmarks we saw (BF1/4K) was running on their lowest tier chip as confirmed by Linus so I'd believe any "leaked" benchmarks you see.

If I didn't have my 6700k then I'd pre order in a heartbeat.

Need a proper review before we can make any conclusions, and atm it looks like it only barely pulls ahead against last gen intels runing at stock speeds, bare in mind that any intel K series can add 500mhz to base freq without breaking a sweat and that would make whole. story diferent

Considered this but went for the 1800x in the end. Also got the MSI xpower titanium x370 motherboard from Scan along with 32GB Corsair vengeance led 3200. £1150 before I get the new flagship Vega card, I'm scaring myself. Saying that I think it's time to put my old AMD 1090t setup out to pasture, it has served me well for 7 years.

Potentially its a great chip, but the benchmarks so far have been handpicked. If you need more cores then even from the limited info it looks like these are going to be a winner but for just gaming they probably still wont beat Intels quads in most games.
Exceptions in gaming are when you stream as well where the extra cores will help even the load out.
Expect Intel to either launch something better or drop prices if there is some real competition.

does this processor runs colder than intel :p

But what about the boosts in gaming performance Intel's chips get from faster memory? Does Ryzen scale well with faster DDR4? Why have AMD set the NDA end date to the same day as launch? Do you really believe the setups shown by AMD considering what they said and showed at Computex about Polaris?

I'm hoping Ryzen takes names and kicks ass. I loved my XP-M 2500+ and my Opty 165, and I've delayed upgrading for over six months to give AMD a chance (and I've had 6700Ks and 7700Ks in my basket several times recently... I'm itching to upgrade!). But it's scary to see so many people drinking the Kool-aid and pre-ordering unreviewed chips. oO

That is a very good question.
Binning should get them some 6C/12T ones from these 8 core dies, but whether 4 core is meant to get a different mask and die is unknown.
But it makes sense that they would.
They obviously concentrated on the octocore, but then the next question is whether they have the masks for the quadcores ready or if they perhaps needed a respin.
For octocore, a max of 4GHz is actually very good, but for the quads higher frequencies are more important if they want to compete with Intel for gaming loads*. IPC seems to be between Haswell and Broadwell which isn't that far away from Skylake but if max OC is 4.2GHz vs 4.9GHz Intel will still be ahead in those unrealistic 480P CPU comparisons.
*or the perception of gaming loads, as more cores do help modern games like BF1 and having more cores is always more helpful for background stuff like video recording and for min FPS which is the more important criteria but mostly ignored for average or max FPS.

does this processor runs colder than intel :p
Colder is not the same as using less power as we saw with Intel with for instance Sandy Bridge vs Ivy Bridge: lower wattage but a smaller die area so it actually ran hotter. Plus Intel cheapened out and no longer use solder for their mainstream parts.
AMD continue to solder their heatspreaders unlike Intel and all their CPUs are unlocked. Earlier rumours had the Ryzen 7 1700 rated at 65W whereas yesterday's press release doesn't say. Anyway, the competing Intel LGA2011v3 chips (6800K, 6850K, 6900K) are all rated at 140W plus the platform (mobos) use more power, so AMD seem to have been Intel there. This is actually a very good design for servers. Max frequency is the big unknown but more important for the quads.

Barely? In most multi-threaded tests, it should beat the i7 7700k in most tasks, even when it's overclocked, it will be Mhz dependent applications that the i7 will win (If performance levels are as stated), We are talking 8/16 cores verses 4/8 cores.

We don't know what the overclock speeds will be for the Ryzen, they did manage to overclock all 8 cores to over 5.1Ghz on Liquid Nitrogen yesterday (breaking the cinebench world record,), and rumours have stated the Ryzen will clock to 4.5ghz but they are just rumours, it's always best to wait for actual reviews to confirm this.

Personally i'm waiting to see how the 1600 performs, six cores 12 threads should be a big upgrade from the non-multithreading i5 I have at the moment, arguably the area that AMD can do the most damage to Intels cpu line-up. Even the low end should match i5 performance (atleast on paper)

I second this, watched the vid last night and am so relieved that (,for a change), holding out for AMD to do a good job has actually been rewarded. 2600k is good enough, but it may become a dedicated server at this rate.

Back in 2013 they did a deal, whether that's still the case, unsure.

I never really watched or looked into Computex so i can't really comment. I believe them, personally. Sure they've had a rocky hype in the past with Bulldozer, tried to correct things with Piledriver but it still wasn't... great. This time though, I think AMD have managed to produce something worth getting excited about. As I say, if it wasn't for the fact I already own two Intel machines (4670k and a 6700k) I'd definitely factor in Ryzen as a viable option. I've always been a fan of AMD and always will be and really think they can give it a proper go.

Sure I can understand why pre-ordering a CPU without seeing actual non-demo benchmarking results is a little illogical but hey ho, personal choice I guess.

"Intel scared... more people excited by AMD's upcoming CPU."

Some insightful (possibly inciteful :p) comments there. ^^
#22
Yea they broke world record but nobody took a screenshot or anything that would proof it, only screenshot they had was under 2400points.
More like an advert for amd to hook more poeple on preorders.

Not so good in gta v,not a suprise give single thread similar x99 cpu's from leaks.

Interesting that AMD aren't on that list considering they paid for him to go to their preview shows and some of the videos even mentioned it was sponsored by AMD.

The Linus videos used to be quite good and informative. Now they try too hard to be funny with their stupid video thumbnail. Much better channels are Salazar Studio, UFDisciple and AdordedTV (though I suspect he's an AMD fan)
#27
Yeah as if AMD has a bigger sponsor budget than Intel or nVidia... :D
