    I am actually starting to feel a little excited about this, looks like it may be better than expected.

    Watched the livestream, quietly impressed.

    Now I'm left wondering how AMD can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? To the marketing dept!

    Re: AMD takes the fight to Intel with Ryzen CPU

    Lisa Su has got a lot better at presenting on stage.

    And 3.4GHz on the base model, meaning other models will start higher - 3.6, 3.8?
    And the turbo being disabled means we just don't know where it gets to - but AMD might not want to tip Intel off...

    If AMD really can live up to the hype this time, there is a strong possibility that the next PC I build will be an AMD-CPU based one.

    It even apparently did a bit better in BF1 with a Titan X(!) than the 6900K. It looks like AMD has a solid design overall.

    I do hope they can deliver a swift, firm kick to Intel's plums. Serious competition in the CPU market is long overdue.

    Re: AMD takes the fight to Intel with Ryzen CPU

    Yehaaa, looks like I was right. We do have the returning of Athlon vs Pentium 4. Intel has nothing new in his sleeve and is just bumping the clocks. Time for an upgrade if all turns to be true.

    Much prefer Zen to Ryzen. Looks great though, will probably wait for a 6 core personally.

    Re: AMD takes the fight to Intel with Ryzen CPU

    Looks and sounds very promising.

    I wonder if the memory controller on the consumer chips will be able to handle ECC memory like the Athlon 64 of old, or if it'll be artificially limited to standard memory like Intel does it.

    Not quite, the P4 was a dog of a chip and what Intel have right now it pretty good.

    So it is more like the P3 vs Athlon, which was a race with occasional change of lead.

    Of old? The AM3+ socket has ECC, I'm using it on this FX8350. Only Asus seem to enable it though.

    Lack of ECC in the consumer FM2+ socket was really annoying. I'm sure the home server market must be reasonably significant, and I don't want a graphics card in a home server so the APUs are otherwise ideal.

    Re: AMD takes the fight to Intel with Ryzen CPU

    Most impressive, dam that took me by surprise I was'nt expecting this good of a product by AMD running at 3.4Ghz and beating intel Core i7 6900k which is clocked at 3.7Ghz now that is nice & the best part is they got even faster Chips coming. A nice kick up Intel's rear side for a change. Intel will come back with Skylake-E/ Kabylake-E but the question is when? My guess it around April i doubt they have these in Jan 17.

    I wasn't sure how AMD handled things these days. I've only ever had an Athlon 64 and the native ECC support as well as the hardware firewall of the nForce-based motherboard were major selling points for me.

    I've probably stated this several times by now, but I will not touch a system without ECC memory support again, if I in any way can avoid it. Getting burned once by faulty memory and the data corruption that followedd was more than enough.
