    Re: AMD officially announces Ryzen 7 CPUs

    This chap has been correct about the memory situation with Ryzen in the past(so might be worth reading his comments):

    It looks like AMD is really pushing some last minute updates - apparently there might be 3800MHZ DDR4 support too.

    First thought that is one of these max clocking pissing contests. And while it might be, I see that skinflint (aka geizhals),
    list 63 DDR4 modules over 3733. Of course they all cost a fortune with the cheapest being £10+ per GB (without filters, the cheapest DDR4-2400 modules cost £2.71 per GB).
    Of course, chances are performance won't improve that much unless people run 7Zip all day (or maybe Fallout4). Now, when the APUs come out it might be worthwhile having such fast ram although if AMD were to release a high-end HBM2 APU it is likely to work cheaper than buying extremely expensive RAM.
    Which raises a question: what z height would a APU with HBM2 be? And if it is higher, has AM4 got enough hight? If not, we can either conclude AMD are not going to release and desktop APUs with HBM2, or someone messed up when designing AM4.

    They have to otherwise it will be certain review sites pushing Intel having better high speed memory support as a reason to buy an Intel CPUs. There is not much AMD can do currently with Intel having a clockspeed advantage with the Core i7 7700K,but I suspect the rest is them trying to not give Intel too many advantages over them.

    Re: AMD officially announces Ryzen 7 CPUs

    The first leaked review of the R7 1700X(apparently):

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1624432/s...and-benchmarks

    One of the comments from overclock.net on the leak:

    I think it's important to note the ff (as far as I can tell)

    -ram running only at 2133mhz
    -cheapo cooler used so no XFR
    -they manage to oc it at 4ghz but didn't run the clock on mosts test










    There are loads more benchmarks in the review.

    Edit!!

    It seems to run at 3.5GHZ on all cores.

    In the same way that it was RIP Intel when they were struggling through the whole Pentium 4 Netburst architecture debacle? No, Intel will be fine...they have extremely deep pockets, and huge marketing muscle. A return to proper competition from AMD is more than welcome though.
