    AMD did release a new AGEAS on AM4 that unlocks X3D overclocking or at least extended frequencies.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Yup, 7800X3D is only 8 cores, but all vcached. They've cut the base clock quite a bit (not great for some games) but by only having one 8-core CCD, they've avoided latency issues de to cross-CCD data. Which is great for most games.

    All told, it's looking like a no-brainer for gaming-first users, often matching or even beating the much more expensive 7900X3D and even 7950X3D in many/most games. Also, very efficient compared to non-3D 7-series, and to Intel 13th Gen.

    Which makes it compelling for gamers. Much less so, though, for productivity purposes, where 13th-G or non-3D AMD 7000 chips (higher end ones, obviously) look more compelling performance-wise, if WAY less power-efficient.

    And if you want a 50/50 bend of gaming and productivity, as I do .... oh, Bu.... bother.


    Reviews are out on GN and LTT (and elsewhere no doubt, but I watched those two).
