    Didn't know the FX had graphics included. I though it was exclusive to the A series...

    Mobile? Where is my AM4 motherboard? Getting impatient now.

    So when we can expect the desktop version?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    This. At least we saw the first picture of Zen.

    Just hope AMD launches these in time for Kaby Lake,otherwise they will probably loose sales IMHO.

    Personally I don't *need* zen just yet, I think I could even make use of one of these 2 core jobbies in an ITX motherboard but I would want it socketed for future upgrades as I like my machines to be flexible.

    Was even considering getting an AM1 board, but would rather not if AM4 is imminent.

    So much this. I want Bristol Ridge AM4, and I want it now!

    Re: AMD announces 7th Generation A-Series mobile processors

    Perhaps I should just go and order an AM1 board, it is the only way a decent ITX AM4 board will get announced any time soon

    Well, someone needs to take the bullet and I don't have any spare cash right now (otherwise I'd be leaping on one to upgrade my recording machine)...

    What is it with AMD and their slam campaign, they've never been this aggressive with "proving the competitor is worse than us". Someone please correct me if I'm wrong :/

    You are wrong

    Actually you may be right, but I don't think that rubs people up the wrong way so they accept it. The old "nvidia made us look bad in games" type stuff came across as annoying whining (doesn't matter whether it is true of not I think it hurt AMD) so I'm glad that seems to have stopped.

    In fact, in some ways it is nice that AMD are making a few waves on the strengths of their product. No-one else it going to big it up for them.

    Edit to add: Does anyone actually bother with benchmarks for laptop processors? I mean, if Intel produced a complete dog of a processor then in desktops it would get charted and laughed at, but does the same happen in laptops or would it sell anyway just from branding? Perhaps I just haven't been looking.

    That AT article done with AMD was a disaster though.

    Calling it now, bristol ridge is another carizzo repeat. AMD will hold AM4 in reserve until it can launch with zen CPU's

    Re: AMD announces 7th Generation A-Series mobile processors

    In the Piledriver thread,I linked back to an AT article about it:

    AMD - Piledriver chitchat

    It seems AMD has two different dies now - one which is 250MM2 and one which is 125MM2 instead of the single 245MM2 die Carrizo had. But it does appear AT thinks we might not get AM4 based chips.

    I am *hoping* that they are just holding off on getting samples of Zen to the mobo manufacturers. What we don't want is another AM2 situation where people expected to be able to plug a Phenom into their AM2 board, but in the end mostly needed an AM2+ board with a few small tweaks; the Asus board I had at the time the Phenom boot code wouldn't fit in the BIOS flash so it was pretty close to working! People bought FM1 boards expecting them to last more than a few months before being obsolete. If I were AMD, I wouldn't want that to happen again.

    But... when AMD released the Athlon, no-one dared make motherboards for it for fear of what Intel would do. To be making CPUs and have no-one building motherboards to take them would be really bad, so getting motherboards out on the shelves early would be a good move.

    Edit: Even when Zen is released, that is a high end CPU with 6 to 8 cores. AMD will need a 2 and 4 core budget option, and Bristol was supposed to be that. It isn't a short stopgap, it is needed for some time before a Zen based APU can be released. That gets all the AMD range back onto a single socket.
