    This is also with most of the AMD prebuilt PCs still being based around Excavator based APUs. Now imagine when they have Raven Ridge is released,and if they can actually sell any higher end GPUs in reasonable volume.

    Good to see AMD are seeing an end to the miners buying everything in sight as good as it has been for them its not been great for us non minters wanted a new AMD card, just need DDR4 prices come to back down next.

    Ditto, if DDR4 prices come down I can see them reporting further increases. Prices are a bit crazy at the present time.

    TBH, I think they need to get some manufacturers to produce some cheap boards as well. Many upgraders are not going to stomach the hideous price of a mobo+cpu+ram upgrade at the moment unless their system is very under-powered or broken.

    What's wrong with the current selection? The plain 300 boards would be nice and probably knock a couple of pounds off, but AM4 boards are already widely available for half the price of the competing intel motherboards.

    The cheap A320 and B350 motherboards should work fine and cost as little as £45!

    As CAT says, the entry point is £45 for all the goodies the AM4 platform brings, and ~ £60 gets you an overclocking-capable B350 board. Motherboard price is not the issue here, and AMD can't do anything about RAM supplies....

    My main concern - very selfishly - is with the lack of Raven Ridge APUs. Although a drop in the price of DDR4 would make me distinctly happier...

    Re: AMD releases Q3 2017 financials, revenues up 26 per cent

    I am waiting to upgrade my setup with a ryzen 8 core but the price of 32gb ram at the minute isn't good (I am looking for productivity).

    I too look forward tot he APUs, my HTPC could do with an upgrade to something UHD capable.

    Providing the desktop RR,can clock as high as the desktop Ryzen,and the reduction to 4MB of L3 cache does not affect gaming performance too much,I do wonder whether a single CCX on RR,would mean CPU performance is tied less to RAM speed,as the reason Ryzen can benefit from faster RAM is the increase in bandwidth between the two CCX modules AFAIK. Plus I get the impression some games are not really configured to run optimally either on the dual CCX Ryzen CPUs,so it might be helpful to only have a single CCX in theory!
