AMD better hurry up and release this, my HTPC needs an upgrade. Those TDPs are tasty!

Bristol Ridge isn't Zen - it's Excavator and was allegedly getting released in October unless I am mistaken.

some juicy new bits and bobs..

ASUS A320M-C + A12-9800

This is seemingly the first 'released' AM4 mobo in a retail form - but being used in OEM systems in Japen only.. so AMD are dfinatly holding out on a channel launch.

Board is an entry level A320 chipset so not terribly exiciting.. but nonetheless, this is new era stuff here,

System fitted with top Bristol ridge SKU, and max supported DDR4-2400.

in the process of getting one in my hands (have extended fmaily in JP) so will see how I go

DB9. I have not seen a serial port on a consumer desktop mobo for a few years.
Seems out of place .....

Still very common on entry level boards for some reason.

Nice - I'll look forward to your minireview.

Few reviews in Japanese already floating around: https://translate.google.com/transla...html&sandbox=1

Seems to trade blows with the A10-7870K.

Pre-built it's being shipped in is called AeroStream RM5A-C81/T, retails ~70,000.

I'm not seeing it. How is it exciting? It's already old tech.

new chipset/new memory controller wrapped into new socket is new
if the process smaller/shrunk that would be quite a big deal. then i'd be excited.

Depends on your interests as to whether it's exciting or not , simple as that. If you're passionate about PC platform, it's somewhat exciting in that it's a step back towards competition in the industry. A sign AMD haven't given up on PC, and if anything are hoping longer term to captialize on Intel taking step back from PC focus.

Of course this all depends how competent it is.. both AM4 as an ecosystem, and Zen, the missing part of the puzzle. But Bristol ridge will give some insight in the meantime.

By Old tech, I guess you're referring to Bristol Ridge, in which case, yes, it is much Like Kabylake.. i.e both are Refereshes of existing architecture.

Anyway, I'll be doing a writeup soon. I've been finishing of benching a Core i3, but it has literally died on me. and I do not know why.

I was downloading a 3dmark update, and it shutdown (cleanly - but by itself) and will not fire up again, just keeps power cycling.. wtf!

I really want to do SATA and USB benches on it, to put against FM2 and AM4 so hopefully can get sorted thankfully 90% of the rest was done on it already.

Nah, old tech meaning that Intel already has done ddr4 over a year ago, and their process is smaller using way less power. I see no reason to get excited about old tech.

Don't confuse no passion against getting fed up with being 2nd constantly. AMD last lead the field with the Athlon 64. Ever since has just been a cost reason to buy only. I got sick of it and switched to Intel last year after running AMD for the last ~17 years. I illogically (loyalty and hoping for the good old days again) held out for too long.

10 years time Phil will be benching old windows 7/8/10 intel i5 / i7 boxes with Nvidia 10x0 cards I'm sure.

To be fair though. Since the Athlon 64 they have had a few awesome chips.

The first $100 Quad-Core CPU, the Athlon 2 x4 and the Phenom 2 x6, which could be pretty potent once you pushed the NB up to 3ghz and had the core at 4ghz, was able to give Nahelem a good run for it's money.

The Athlon x2 6000+ and the Athlon X2 7750 were pretty solid in their own rights too.

I don't think anyone expects AMD to be the market leader to become a tempting buy, they just need to be "good enough" to nab some marketshare... I doubt anyone would complain if AMD could offer us i7 6850K performance for less money with similar efficiency.

Currently AMD's absolute "best" 4.7ghz 8-Core CPU will loose against Intels Quad-Core offerings whilst they also use orders of magnitude less energy and with more modern chipset features. (PCI-E 3.0, Sata 3 etc'.)

AMD will also need to iterate faster and more substantually, I doubt stagnating for half a decade is going to grant them marketshare... Same goes for their GPU's too.
