    The question I'd like answered is, when can I buy this? I may have to check Ebay and see if anyone manages to snag one through OEM channels.

    I'm tempted to upgrade my server (2500k, 16gb ddr3 etc etc) and consolidate and turn it into an all in one replacing both the server and my Nvidia shield.

    More details and early Benchmarks of Bristol ridge:



    65w BR > 95w Gaodvari predecessor, which isn't too shabby. No IGP results though.

    With the IPC improvements in Bristol, I wonder if most games will perform better than my fx8350, even with only 4 cores.

    Would be super keen to get my hands on an A12-9800E for a nice PicoPSU PC that the father can use...

    hmmm, an Athlon 950 now and upgrade to Zen next year.

    Might be a decent option for some if the X4 950 is cheap enough.

    wouldn't count on it, as BR has only 2x1MB L2, which hurts it in games (with a dGPU that is) even versus Kaveri.

    On top of that it's only 2 Module, 4 thread. Many games will tax 4 threads, and a 4 Module CPU like the FX will have a one-
    up.

    Another budget Board, named this time:

    Gigabyte GA-B350M-D2

    [​IMG]

    - 4+3phase VRM
    - 1x PCIe 3.0 16x (@8x with Bristrol ridge APU)
    - 2x pcie 2.0 1x
    - 2x DDR4-2400

    hate the way these bottom tier boards ommit HDMI ports - this trend looks to continue

    Looking good :)

    Great to see PCI gone. At the cheaper end that always restricted my options.

    I might have to start stocking up on AM3+ boards. They are perfect for Windows XP Retro Gaming. Even support SLI on the top chipsets.

    There's another Gigabyte board floating about, but so far no official specs, but yes, Bristol ridge supports HDMI 2.0.. Those that fit HDMI ports, particarly ITX will be potentially great little HTPC/loungeroom casual game boxes


    Yes, I think AM3 will be phased out pretty swiftly!

    Can only hope zen gets intel moving, great to see and getting back on the horse its being to stale for to long. I've always though about what would of happened if intel stuck on the net burst path lol

    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.

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