just that at the latest showing they had a newer stepping es chip doing a higher clock speed

It would appear as if AMD has seemingly (and not purposely) given us some lights as to when their hotly anticipated Ryzen chips will hit the wild - and some of our wallets. While they haven't specifically given an exact date, the talk to be given by AMD at the annual Game Developer Conference (GDC) reads: "Join AMD Game Engineering team members for an introduction to the recently-launched AMD Ryzen CPU followed by advanced optimization topics". The "recently-launched tidbit is the most important, since it places Ryzen's launch necessarily before the end of GDC - which will happen between February 27th and March 3rd. AMD has, in the meantime, altered the original headline by cutting the "recently launched" tidbit altogether.

So, desktop CPUs next month and server CPUs sometime Q2.

Here's hoping they stick to it and that some decent mid-high end gear is included in the desktop types.

this is with a undetected turbo speed so it may or may not be working beyond 3.4GHz

its also done on a cheap mb A320M Pro-VD with with some rather slow ram 2400c17

If they have any intentions of success, they should be trying to backdate driver support as much as possible. No reason not to at least go as far back as Win 8, to expect everyone to start off the bat with 10 is a bit rich, and would erode much of the economical advantage over existing Intel CPUs (assuming performance data is accurate).

 

As for the performance figures earlier - a bit of a mixed bag there, not entirely enlightening.

apparently the prime and physics tests support avx2 which the tested engineering sample doesnt which is why it falls behind in those tests

some are saying retail zen should support avx2 just as intel is moving to avx2.5

I think AMD don't want spend the time writing Win7 chipset drivers for Ryzen at all.

Win 8 works with Kaby Lake because it's probably using the almost identical Sky Lake drivers.

Price is amazing if the performance holds true... Really interested in those 65w versions.

yeah if true AMD Ryzen 7 1700 $319 us looks like a winner especially if it clocks to near what the 1800x manages

Highly depends how much "Australia tax" gets piled on that when we pay for it like all things.

i read an article somewhere that Ryzen will run on windows 7 but some fetures may not work ,not sure WTF that means

 

Windows 7 is a 2009 OS - don't expect it to handle multitude of 2016-7 common technologies like Windows 10 does.

seems they may have been eu prices minus vat not us so the price may be worse than we thought

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?292863-News-EU-prices-listed-AMD-Ryzen-7-1800X-To-Cost-628-EUR

VAT rates vary according to EU country but it's about 20 to 25% on average.
