My expectation would be that the R3 is going to be a single CCX part (I was really hoping that the 4/8 R5s would be).
If so the question on my mind now is: Will a single CCX R3 overclock a bit better than a dual and therefore have a higher IPC than R5/R7...
Is the fastest gaming CPU (in the short term) going to be R3 rather than R5 or is it more likely that the latency issues with dual CCXs are mostly surmountable (in firmware/software) and that will let a 3+3 R5 achieve full potential.
Anyone got a crystal ball handy?

This is all great, but when will we have motherboards? I pre-ordered an Asrock Taichi and 1700X ages ago, still not here
Seems the motherboards are really lacking in quantity at the moment from all the brands.
So if it is pad limited, then that area is going to exist whatever, you may as well find something to put in it. That should soon be graphics cores for the 2/4 core parts, otherwise it may as well be cpu cores, leaving it empty is silly.
Also the post mentioned that the cores are symmetrically disabled, does that mean that they can potentially be re-enabled, like some of the old tri cores?
