    with all the resources needed to make these old-timers AMD should simply migrate to Raven Ridge and save us the headache

    Bet these are now retail to get rid of the final batches, and any extra stock OEMs didn't want, while they transition production (or testing of) for Raven Ridge. I mean until recently the architectures involved in Raven Ridge weren't ready for implementation anyway, I suppose Vega still isn't with some of its best features software disabled, memory supply high in price and low in stock, etc etc. At least now AM4 has a chip containing an embedded GPU that people can deploy as placeholders for a very reasonable £45.

    These are made on 28nm, if people are still prepared to buy them they would be pretty cheap to make now. If an APU with Ryzen and good graphics comes out which is the equivalent of an R3 CPU and an RX 550 GPU which together will cost you nearly £200, I can't see that part being sold for peanuts. OTOH, AMD may want to get away from their old budget image and drop slow parts.

    But otherwise as Ozaron says, I suspect these are just old stock being used up. With a good upgrade path that is way better than a dead end AM3 or FM2+ board.

    Is there any info yet on whether Raven Ridge will be a 4 core/8 thread plus Vega chip or 4 core/4 thread? Or both even?

    4 cores or 2 cores 4 threads? Are people undermining AMD Excavator cores?

    The current CCX works, I imagine AMD will just use it as is. I'm sure we will get 2C4T up to 4C8T versions over time, probably with some 4C4T versions for people who want a lower power consumption.

    I am expecting to see something the same size as Ryzen just with one CCX replaced with some GPU cores tied into the infinity fabric.

    Be interesting to see 9800e benched against Intel's price-comparable i3 in games.

    I'd say these definitely fit into the market at least until Ryzen/Vega APU's come in and at that price they really not bad. The Pentium range will have superior CPU performance, but will loose GPU wise (I think). Would like to see how AMD APU's vs Intel APU's competes in the same bracket fares.
