Can't believe AMD is back in the CPU market and ready to scare intel.

As for rumors on performance: IPC on par/better than haswell

The best OT title made it. Beautiful.

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

I already have a 5820K running with a 4.3 OC and I'm not likely to replace it with first-gen Ryzen but come on $AMD make it rain motherfuckers!

$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.
 
#13
I haven't used AMD cpu since the Athlon 64 era but I am seriously tempted to make the switch to team Red if that 1800x is an easy 5ghz under water like I've been hearing.
 
#19
Haha, nice.

Missed opportunity: "AMD Ryzen |OT| AMD is Ryzen indeed"

But, that might only be funny to people who've gone to church on Easter sunday.

I have a i5 Haswell. This might make a decent upgrade.
 
#25
That title is amazing.

So, I haven't kept up with all of this, but would it be worth it to upgrade from my 6600k? And to what? Also, what will I need to do so? Never had an AMD CPU.

Depends on your needs and usage.

Wait for reviews.


Admit it, the only reason for such a CPU OT to exist is because of that amazing title.
*cough*


Glorious title OP, bravo, well done, you did it!
The title was not my idea:

I don't think I'll be buying one as I built a system in 2015 (overclocked my 6600k to 4.5GHz), but I'm looking forward to the increased competition in the CPU market, very happy AMD looks to have an incredible product.
 
#30
Looking forward to see what Ryzen does to shake things up a bit. I almost wish I could work retail again just to be around for the launch and how things play out.
 
#36
Waiting on Motherboard reviews to see which is using the best VRM setup. I have great confidence in the ASUS Crosshair, but I'm waiting to see how the high end Asrock motherboard is when it comes to the type of VRM's they went with and configuration.

AMD IS BACK BABY!
 
#37
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.

Haha, alright, great work PFD!

Still a well crafted OT feist! ( I <3 Feist btw if your name is inspired by the singer, you have great taste in music)

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!

Thanks for the OT content compliments.

No worries, I never like to take credit for anyone else's work.

Heh, I happen to be a long time Broken Social Scene fan...


Ryzen seems exciting. Is there a roadmap for their products after Ryzen?
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.

Hard to justify spending a ton, what with a two year old son and a mortgage.
 
#47
Seeing how I only replace the CPU when I get a new PC (still rocking a CPU from 2010), Ryzen will be my new CPU to hold me over for the next half decade or so. Inject me with that hyperthreading.
