AMD Zen

Starting to see price drops on Intel lineup across the board. Also, rumors of i5 wtih HT and another few K versions to prepare for AMD launch.... Looks like they are scared a bit.

Good. I've been keeping an eye on pricing for about 18 months and it's like you can't get much worthwhile under $300. A bit of a shakeup is badly needed.

Looking at the high end models they have on the tdp like this 95W SR3+ for 1800x,1700x and 1600x but not on the pro tdp's... Thought I read it was the power group but now can't find were I read that now.

shamelessly pinched from xs forum

cinbech scores http://www.guru3d.com/news_story/amd_ryzen_5_1600x_cinebench_r15_score_close_to_intel_core_i7_6800k.html

We start the day with a new Ryzen post. This round a Ryzen 5 1600X performance result in Cinebench R15 surfaced. The result comes from Reddit forum user VulkanDX12.

The man posted a picture of a Cinebench R15 benchmark run showing a CPU score of 1,136. Cinebench lists an AMD Ryzen processor with 6 cores and 12 threads clocked at 3.3GHzand model number ZD3301BBM6IF4_37/33_Y.

Z = QS (Qualification Sample, which is closer to the retail version than an Engineering Sample)
D = Desktop processor (in this case, Summit Ridge)
330 = 3.30GHz base frequency
1 = Model revision number (first revision)
BB = 65W
M = AM4 platform
6 = Number of physical cores
I = ?? (there part indicates the amount of cache, but the decoder doesn't contain an entry for "I")
F4 = B stepping
37 = 3.70GHz boost frequency
33 = 3.30GHz base frequency

If you plot the Ryzen CPU's score in a graph of Cinebench R15 benchmark results over at Anandtech containing scores from 20 Intel processors, its score of 1,136 matches up with (and comes out slightly ahead of) Intel's Core i7-6800K. The second screenshot shows single threaded perf.

I don't know why intel bothered with kaby lake on the desktop, its just a rehashed skylake. Knowing ryzen was coming out and cannon lake being the real upgrade.

another chines leak this time of 1700x

it sure trounces my 6700k in multi threaded apps

its worth noting that all these leaks are x models so if there on good cooling they could be auto overclocked fairly high

apparently it hit 5.2ghz at 1.85v on ln2 -200c and claimed the wr for cinbench on a 8 core 16 thread cpu beating the 5960x at 6ghz

Got from Newegg in US. Cheapest x370 mb they had. Ordered mydigitalssd m.2 pci x4 120gb for boot, has great specs for price and some ddr4 evga SC 3200 cl16(didn't know they made ram) cheap.

 

http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/mydigitalssd-120gb-bpx-80mm-2280-m.2-pcie-gen3-x4-nvme-ssd-mdnvme80-bpx-0128/

 

Really hope these OC good and looks like EK are compatible. Any temps anyone find? The talk about extra cooling will increase performance so interested to see what that means
