AMD Ryzen: About time isnt it?
show user profile  ScotlandDave
Doesn't do anything to challenge the current slowdown in CPU performance, but at least AMD are finally undercutting and outperforming Intel again with it's new range of substantially cheaper than i7 cpu's:

There doesn't seem to have been much development in CPU chips for years. Good to see AMD is on the ball again.

If it forces down the price of intels this can only be a good thing, what do they have to take on xeons?

Haven't looked into that but I've heard nothing of dual-cpu support or the likes, which is at this point disappointing. It means its purely targeting the low mid level market with no emphasis on workstation grade computing - would love to see that. Fucking xeons are basically i7's with some extra bandwidth, a couple of cores and the cpu bridge 'unlocked' and triple the price tag. Intel have been naming their price for too long imo..

It looks like AMD Naples is the potential answer to the above.. If it's anything like Ryzen ( which might literally take the entire market by storm ) then there could be some reaaaallllllly interesting things to look forward to:

I'm sure the tech worms reading this will already know all of this stuff. It's all news to me atm. Where's Stabby these days the guy's a genius with this stuff?

@Dave, yeah I got tired of looking, all I can find is hype aimed at gamers and the "this vs that" brigade, I could build another 32 thread E5 2670 for a lot less.

As far as I can remember it has always worked (as long as it's not https).

FX got to kinda agree with you on this, but we will see.

I'm looking forward to the reviews.
Hopefully there will be a price-war again. It's been a while.

Been looking forward to this for a while.
The 1700-1800X seem like they could make good render machines, for a decent price.. bit of a pity that they dont support more than dual channell memory, but I am not sure how much difference this will really make in the real world.

Thinking that the 1600-1600X, is gonna be where I will be looking for a good gaming PC..

It would be a huge letdown, if they turn out to suck at gaming though.. After this much hype..

Terribly boring signature.

Did i understand correctly that there are no ryzen models with less than 8 cores?

I believe that only the Ryzen 7 series has 8/16 cores.
The 5 and 3 series will have from 4/4 to 6/12 cores

I see mixed results on the gaming reviews. Some are great, others are disappoint.
It really just comes down to the fact that a lot of games aren't optimized for more than 4 cores, it seems.

Overall, though, AMD whoops some ass in multicore heavy applications. So that's good. Cheaper workstations :)

I think we're pretty much approaching a brick-wall in terms of single-core performance with the current cpu architecture ( and the actual physical limitations of hardware down to the atomic level ) - more cores/threads is where it's at ( hence GPU computing ) and the sooner game developers start thinking that way the better ( because they influence such a huge swathe of popular opinion ). It would be sad if AMD in making the right decision ( more cores whilst sacrificing a snitch of single-threaded performance ) took the hit ( again ) due to peoples ignorance of the fact..
