    AMD AM4-based PC desktop system spotted in Costco

    Machine is powered by an AMD A12-9800 APU but appears to lack USB 3.1 / Type-C ports.

    USB 3.0 == USB 3.1 Rev. 1 (5 Gbps).

    HP missed a marketing trick there on the box. I assume USB 3.1 Rev. 2 will come with Zen, although I'm surprised that it's not on the new chipset that you can see on the board.

    It's a consumer home PC, I don't think most people who'd buy that machine would know the difference between the USB revisions, let alone require a 10Gb/s peripheral connection!

    But I agree on 3.1 gen 1 vs 3.0. Bigger USBs equals more better.

    The board in this machine seems to be the A320 chipset. I'm sure HP will offer the A350 and A370 chipsets too.

    There is a typo, at specification there is " 2xUSB 3.0 and 2xUSB 3.0" i think it should be 2xUSB 3.0 aqnd 2xUSB 2.0

    This looks impressive considering the clock speeds on offer and the HP machine costs around £460.

    The overclock was done on the higher end stock heatsink too!!

    Aren't US prices pre-tax? $599.99 would come out at £554 over here although since the Brexit vote even the old 1:1 conversion we all complained about might be optimistic.

    Some sates include TAX in MSRP and I think all 50 states have different rates so prices in Dollars = Banana until we get UK RRP. The exchange rate for $600 is currently £460 so I would expect AM4 to be roughly in line with current FM2 prices. Ie no Intel style 3% more performance = 25% price increase.

    Yeah. 4.8Ghz would be impossible on a i5 or i7 with a stock Intel heatsink.

    Clock speed alone doesn't mean anything. Remember Faildozer? Or did the AMD fanboys forget about that disgrace of a CPU generation already..?

    All I see is a CPU running at a higher clockspeed with no benchmark or anything that causes any form of CPU load.
    Any Intel CPU could do the same. Even with the stock all-aluminum cooler designed for the i3/Pentium/Celeron.
    Heck.. I could OC my old i7-2600k to 5.4GHz no problem. It wouldn't be stable and the temps would be insane, but hey.. it's enough to show off with a CPU-Z screenshot without any benchmarks or actual indication of real world performance or even just showing the temperature its running at ... which is coincidentally just what that guy did

    I'm not sure why people hate bulldozer chips. It offers lot of performance for considerably less than Intel. Or do the Intel fanboys still lack the ability of comprehension?

    You probably won't understand this but, but Bristol Ridge overclocks a lot better Kaveri at a much lower voltage. You might not consider that impressive but it is. It's even more impressive when you consider the price.

    You can't take many (and very few recent) Intel chips up to 4.8ghz with a stock cooler and most can't hit 4.5ghz, even with custom water cooling. My 2500k will do 5.6Ghz but not a chance will it run that with a stock cooler or at 1.35 volts. My Skylake chip is miles behind.

    It is on the chipset - even the entry level A320 chipset supports 1 USB 3.1 Gen 2, and the B350/X370 chipsets both support two. HP simply haven't bothered implementing it, presumabl;y for cost-saving purposes...
