And yes, the next Intel-related OT should be "Repeal and Replace"

$AMD gained almost 8% today. Volume is massive and institutional investors are piling in.

I'm *this* close to replacing my 4790k system. It all depends on whether the 1700 beats my stock clocks by a fair margin...

My shares if they go up to 16 will almost pay for my Processor. If I sell them. Haven't decided yet.

Great for people who want to build new rigs, but my ~$100 i3 6100 is handling the newest games just fine. Don't see why I should drop $300 on one of these. If you use your computer for work, it'd be another story, of course. I was hoping for something more affordable, to be honest. Eager to see how Ryzen 3&5 models will do.

There's some titles that require pretty heavy CPU. For me Arma, Star Citizen in particular. The I3 6100 is a great dual core and is enough for many people. But it is already a bottleneck. So it depends on what kind of games/framerates someone wants.

And before people's expectations get too out of whack (too late!), let's remember that although Ryzen will be a massive step up for AMD CPUs, Sky/Kaby Lake will likely still be juuuuuust a little faster for games that aren't heavily multi-threaded. Not by a huge margin mind you, and I'm sure there will be plenty of benchmarks where they're neck-and-neck. But enough where if you mostly just care about games on your computer, and already have an overclocked i7 6700k/7700k, you probably won't gain a ton by switching over right now. Other than a smug satisfaction of sticking it to Intel and promoting competition I suppose ;)

At the bare minimum this should push down the price of Intel's CPUs to more reasonable levels, and it will be a huge boon for content creators that have been stuck with Intel's price gouging for years. Plus going forward as more and more games lean into multiple cores to extract full performance, 6 and 8 core CPUs will start to outstrip older chips with fewer physical cores (which is already starting to happen, but only in a few select games).

Here's hoping those Ryzen gaming benchmarks live up to the hype!

Aside from the 6-core/12-thread Ryzen 5 1600X AMD showed and some general launch windows, the remainder of the lineup is unofficial for now.

First gen Ryzen is based on Zen architecture. There is no guarantee that "Ryzen 2" (particularly if it does get released in 2018) will be based on the projected Zen+ architecture. 2018 Ryzen may very well be process and arch tweaks until Zen+ is ready (2019? sooner/later?).

For the time being most unconfirmed info is based on speculation and educated guesses.

I'm interested to see if the 1600x and 1500 will score decently on the benchmarks, as i'm looking for a midrange upgrade option. Looking to replace my aging 17-2600k setup.

So... if the leaked bench are to be believed, the 1700 is still only ~50% faster than my 6 year old i7 2600k. That's good enough to upgrade I guess.
