Would you mind posting benchmarks for which games and EMUs you're referring to?
Looks like I'm gonna opt out for the Intel cpu instead of Ryzen because of how terrible AMD is when it comes to emulating.
Nice find, will watch when I have a moment. TechArp have some good presentations that other sources can miss at times.
I didn't know there was a 16-core / 32 thread version of RyZen for consumer desktops in the pipeline for later this year on the X399 chipset.
Probably old news to you guys but I haven't been following RyZen all that closely.
Also, Joe Macri on the Disruptive Nature of AMD Ryzen:
We've had some discussion on the claimed 12- and 16-core Zen-based HEDT, though not much.
While it's a curious platform name if true, X399, and the similarly speculated X390, are in some ways more fascinating than the mainstream A3xx/B3xx/X3xx AM4s. The choice for LGA isn't surprising considering the limits of PGA and AMD's history from Socket F through SP3.
Speculation has varied between the use of either SP3r2 or some other server-like variant. When you look at how much more smoothly Ryzen 5 was rolled out in comparison to Ryzen 7, the existence and launch of a possible "Ryzen 9" should be interesting considering which lessons can or can not be carried on from the developments of the AM4 platform.
Seems enthusiasts and Intel alike are closely watching lineup pricing, how successfully AMD can launch a consumer HEDT, and how the market will react.
Particularly with Intel supposedly moving up their launch of Skylake-X, mainstream 6-core(s), etc. in response to Ryzen, it seems things are starting to develop at a more rapid pace for users.
