isn't this the RRP price ?

"£320 bucks"

Looks to be the same price everywhere? Isn't this the actual retail price?

Ebuyer advertising this one with 95w cooler (not sure if typo?) for same price:

"£320 bucks"

Contradictory.

Yup, same price everywhere. RRP. Not a deal.

​Thats the stock cooler that it comes with

The R5 1600X is probably the best chip for gaming due to high clocks via 6 Cores, 12 threads.

Definitely, it'll be a good while before any games engines will benefit from the 16 threads I believe

Probably not until the game engines become truly multithreaded but you still get a nicer system

Contradictory.



Sounds a bit deer, are prices Ryzen?

I'll still probably end up buying the R7 1700 in a few months time, often have lots of processes always running in the background pretty much 24/7 so the 8 Core, 16 Threads will come in handy when I load up Battlefield 1 which can use all 8+ threads X)

My i7-4790K is no longer good enough, need more cores and not gonna get raped for £200-£300 just for a good Intel LGA2011v3 board plus another £400+ for just the cheapest 6 core Intel i7-6800K.

A good ZEN board will set you back £250ish if you're serious about overclocking.

AMD doesn't place strict requirements on the VRMs unlike Intel, so you get mid level boards with appalling VRMs sometimes - which limit overclocking margins.

I'm still waiting for gaming benchmarks personally. It's not like it's going to increase in price on launch day.

​No ryzen to upgrade from an i7 just yet.

The B350 will be good enough for the vast majority and come under £100, only extreme overclockers or enthusiasts will buy the high end boards.

still holding out with a fx 8320 till I can actually get a decent upgrade for cheap.

Plenty of £100 B350 boards with 6+ power phases (AsRock are like 9+). Unless you specifically need SLI (CF is supported on a lot of B350) or some of the additional bells/whistles I see no reason to X370 (which you can get for £150ish).

If you're doing LN then of course go for a top of the line board but B350 will be designed from the ground up to support overclocking as they'll appreciate ALL R7/R5 Ryzen will be unlocked, unlike Intel.

B350 is great value. I'll likely go with a Tomahawk for the audio capability and CF support.

Currently got a 1700X preordered but may cancel it or sell it pending reviews. I too would prefer a 1600X and to upgrade in future to 1900X or whatever they have under wraps.

Guaranteed they have a stack load of chips to answer Intel's H2 KL refresh. This is just the beginning...

Well let's just hope those VRMs handle all the current. Seeing as Ryzen chips have a power consumption that rivals Intel now...

And it's not the quantity of phases, but the quality of the VRMs.​

That's the same price as in dollars, I would be importing it if I was getting one to say about £60 after duty

Currently $1.00 = £0.8~, $330 USD is roughly £264 + 20% VAT = £316~

The price is right.

​regardless of where you buy it / preorder , this is a relatively inexpensive way for a 8c/16t chip.
in this case, the product itself is a deal IMHO

They probably can only upgarde on clocks than anything with KL .. they won't have any answer till 2018 and of course amd will be updating ryzen too ..

First the first time in forever ALL of the manufacturers are fully onboard with AMD, there's competition. Any products cheaping out will be found out quickly and they won't sell - enthusiasts talk.

I'd wager than the components on the boards you speak of will be of at least equal quality to Intel parts, simply from an R&D and supply chain perspective they will recycle what is already in production.

AMD isn't the spotty little brother now.

Woot an RRP deal. I think there are some 1p sweets that are a 1p at the local shop.....Stampeeeeeeed

Preordered a 1700X from there and cancelled my UK order.

Tempted to order a 1700 and just OC it after seeing the statements made by OCUK.

Gibbo (who has been testing them) has already confirmed ALL of the Ryzen chips support CFR and are the same, other than base clocks.

He also confirmed he OCed a 1700 to 4.0Ghz on all cores (beating a stock 1800X) on decent cooling. So even with a good air cooler he said to expect 3.8/3.9Ghz.

I've gone for the X370 Gigabyte Gamer 5 board from Awd and will probably preorder a 1700, OC better and upgrade to a 1900X or something down the line.

Will do, maybe look at a book for snappy comebacks too, then flog to you at RRP afterwards.

works out at roughly £313 on Amazon France

It's £299.90 from Alza.
