Yeah that's the problem I'm trying to understand. Anandtech is reputable (according to most) and Dr Ian Cutress is also. So... for him to get it so wrong, and so far away from what the rest of the tech press has gotten is really confounding.


As an aside to all of that, I'm happy with the Zen+ results. They got their 10% performance boost which is more than what Intel have done over the recent years.


EDIT: Perhaps because they're only using a GTX1080 and not the Ti... there's a GPU bottleneck and Ryzen is pulling ahead?

Almost seems like if you cannot OC to 4.3 on all cores, then it is not worth it since XRF2 seems to be doing a stellar job and boosts to 4.3.  I was reading the techpowerup, and was kinda confused at first.  He was able to get 1.4v to 4.2ghz but running stock yielded better results.  All in all looks like a good release, just not enough for me to upgrade.  


I also read that AMD might have held back the 2800x waiting for Intel to respond, possibly aggressive binned parts. 

I think they saw what the tech press was saying. 1800X didn't make sense

AMD= Team Red?  Nvidia= Green   Intel= Blue    :)  


Keep reading on how 1.5v was used to overclock the 2700x... Ive been running at ~1.4v for 4ghz and didnt want to go much over that.  I thought the recommendation was 1.45v for max with custom loop...  I might bump it up some more... 

I'm thinking of the good old days when AMD logos and colours were Green!

Also... official reviews should be out soon guys. Maybe even tonight?
