I am hanging out for some good AMD server / high end workstation gear so I can finally build a ZFS system and ditch RAID on NAS. Will have to pull the Yeon Yang cube server out of storage.

My last AMD CPU was in 2001... old T-Bird 1.33GHz. Would be nice to have some non-Intel gear again.

So I would assume Threadrippers 16 core lineup would start at a similar price or lower for a low clocked part. Imagine the overclocking possibilities.

I imagine Threadrippers introduction will basically see ryzen 5/7 processors fall in price significantly. Threadripper will most likely start at prices the 7 series are currently.

That is going to play havoc with Intel.

AMD has 8 cores at a decent clock on the consumer line already in market. There are heaps of AM4 boards and they are cheap and well featured. It's going to be a great platform for ITX-ATX.

Threadripper with 16 cores (although 32 could fit in the package) will see AMD shift a lot of product. ATX +atxe maybe mATX. I can see these boards falling in price quite quickly, as volume will be huge. Cheap CPu's to put on it.

If you think of AM2-AM3+ being the same platform that is nearly a 10 year socket. While not exactly one continuous socket, AMD did a lot to smooth the transition.

I get kaybex. Intel is paranoid that it won't have anything to offer its x299 at that price point.
lol what overclocking possibilities

thread ripper will top out at 4ghz like every other ryzen being as many cores as they are most likely much less than this.

ryzen is not what you would consider a good overclocking chip

Yes court jester, I don't expect it to reach over 4 Ghz. Which for a 3.0Ghz CPU with 16 cores, would be a very significant overclock.

Thats my whole point.

I think your also dreaming if you think the 16 core part will get anywhere near 4ghz on average

and your reasons for thinking this?

Zeppelin is completely Fmax limited, not thermal. Threadripper is two Zeppelin dies, so as long as the VRM's can supply, and you can cool ~240-300w of Power/heat (i.e double the 120-150w a 4Ghz 1800x consumes) 4ghz is in reach.

This is less power than an OC'd 7900x is sucking down, so that aspect should not be an issue.

thats a matter of perspective don't you think....900mhz overclock on a 3 gig chip is pretty good considering its 8 core..

heh.. I am running 3.7, even though I can easily handle 3.9+ cooling wise and chip wise. I just don't need it and don't want to burn through power.
