I still have:
2 x AB9-QuadGT
If I remember correctly, the earlier number means the design was started before the next number in the sequence.
Could be down to Silicon lottery, cooling and 65 watt vs 105 watt parts.
3700 X - 117% Base clock 3.6 GHz, turbo 4.4 GHz
3800 X - 119% Base clock...
I did that in my first post of the thread, Ryzen has PCIE 4 on the CPU, Intel has PCIE 3.

A very nice feature that that was not expected, that you don't need to update the motherboard for.
X470 and B450 boards that provide PCIe 4.0...
Four PCIe lanes from the CPU are designed for fast storage such as NVMe SSDs...
PCIE 4 is intergrated into the Ryzen 3000 cpus, that is why you are seeing it on the older AMD chipsets. Intel doesn't have PCIE 4 on the CPUs yet.
Today I picked up:
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3R (rev 2.0) with an I7-880
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L with a Q9550 and 2x2Gb Apacer 6400 RAM

The VRM's on the Motherboard is what I look for as well as the heatsinks on them.
A down blowing CPU cooler for cooling the VRM's and M.2...
With new chipsets from Intel and the second chipset for AMD's Ryzen due in the next month or so, along with new CPU's, waiting and seeing how it...
I would pass on the D92 as the 8700k without deliding puts out some heat. With VRMs being a concern, I tend to look at down blowing HSF these days.
The number under the bar code should be the serial number, I would think.
I went with the ASRock AB350M Pro4 and 1600X with a Noctua NH-C12P-SE14 cooler, it XFXs up to 3.7 and 4.1 single core with an idle temp of 27...
That could be because the Forum Joke keeps bashing a perfectly decent product that caught Intel resting on their laurels and getting blindsided...
Can you just ignore the Forum Joke and stop quoting him?

You should watch Tom of OC3D TV review as that Gigabyte ITX board has problems.
That is the one I was waiting and hoping for.
No one knows, it could also be an eight core chip?
