    Nice - waiting on this new crop of X470 boards and Ryzen+, so that I can finally retire my ageing Core 2 Duo system!

    Hopefully we will finally see some proper high end mATX.

    With some of the deals that have been popping up over Christmas, I have been real tempted but the price of RAM is outrageous.
    Can't justify 16GB DDR4 at its current prices, no matter how good the CPU and motherboard deals are.

    The price of RAM is exactly what's stopping me from upgrading too. I upgraded my current PC to 16Gb of DDR3 about a year ago, & it cost me less than half of the current price. I just can't bring myself to pay about £170 for reasonably high-performance DDR4

    Dude, credit for running it for so long! Mine overclocked brilliantly and really I regret upgrading when I did. I feel it was wasted money.

    Oh and guys, remember that the speed of the RAM really only impacts on AMD chips. With Intel it doens't make much difference so if you're considering an Intel platform, don't shell out for silly speed RAM, just get what you need with considerations for overclocking if you want to or think you'll want to in the future.

    Also, whenever I have looked at the speed of RAM an the impact on gaming, I've found no impact whatsoever. I haven't ever tested it in any other use cases though.

    Re: AMD 400 Series chipset appears in PCI-SIG listing

    Wonder if 2018 will tempt me away from my 3770.

    RAM prices are just too prohibitive for me at the moment. The way it is part of me is even inclined to hold off until DDR5.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Re: AMD 400 Series chipset appears in PCI-SIG listing

    If I was to pop in a 1800x into these new x470 boards would I get the full benefits of extra stuff(pci bandwidth etc)?

    Same here. IIRC, the cost of the ram I want to use for my next build has more than doubled in the last year. I feel for those that can't afford to wait to upgrade.

    I am looking forward to see how the new chipsets and CPUs perform. I like to see AMD back in the game.

    Haha, I have to admit to cheating a little though... picked up a Haswell lappy and a Skylake HTPC along the way. I haven't had a high end gaming PC since the C2D though!

    Looking forward to getting my hands dirty with a scratch build again just need to find a case that doesn't look like complete dogsh...

    Yeah just realized this - performance 32GB seems to be >$400, which is a bit of a bummer. What is causing this? My understanding is that DDR5 may be a ways off for AMD, so I guess we are stuck with these DDR4 prices for now?

    Could be, I've read stuff about 2019 but others claim even maybe in 2018.

    Will have to see how the dust settles on pricing this year.

    Interestingly AMD's (possibly desktop) Raven Ridge has only 8 PCI Express lanes available, much like AMD's desktop Bristol Ridge. Both AMD's Raven Ridge entries in the list shows maximum lane width tested was x8.

    I'm not keen on paying £300+ for 32GB of DDR4, so my Ryzen update will have to wait.

    Re: AMD 400 Series chipset appears in PCI-SIG listing

    the way this is written is more confusing than factually accurate (IMO)
    AM4 3xx series supports up to 24 lanes pci-e 3.0
    pci-e 3.0 x16 for graphics or x8/x8 depending
    4x for the M.2 side
    4x for the remainder such as pci-e 2.0 slots, usb, sata etc etc...

    far as I know, for Ryzen generation 1, the pci-e 3.0 it DOES have coming directly from the cpu are at full speed 8GT/s
    so the description or worsing provided mean jack crud till closer to release to truly highlight what it brings to the table
    cause as it stands with the 3xx, they already are using 24 lanes directly from the cpu and split fairly well, unless they plan on ADDING extra specifically for the M.2 side of things to make sure the rest of the system also has more access to full speed 3.0 (which for everything but graphics cards and m.2 is more or less not at all needed, and even GPU wise pci-e 3.0 at x8 is quick enough, the m.2 at x8 just the same is ample, but x4 in both cases is a bottleneck)

    will not be long to see by all means, but, unless AMD is planning on launching 7nm in March 2018 these are NOT Ryzen 2..12nm is Ryzen+ is a stop gap to work out kinks etc for 7nm Ryzen 2 coming 2019, Raven Ridge is 12nm otherwise known as Ryzen+

    anyways, soon we will see, hopefully it goes much smoother with more out of the box support than 3xx chipsets and some processors not working without requiring Agesa updates which led to many having bootloop or bricked systems (such as the new Raven Ridge)

    Re: AMD 400 Series chipset appears in PCI-SIG listing

    x8 pci-e 3.0 is plenty fast enough for any graphics card, except maybe the craziest high end dual gpu released from years past
    (6990-7990-Titan Z to name a few)
