    "X" CPUs have a higher XFR range.

    Gaming differences all depend on the game in question, some will use all 12 threads a 1600X can offer.

    If you're looking to overclock I'd look at the 1600, if not then the 1600X imo

    Look at the size of that socket... :shock:

    Guess we'll need new water blocks for them :lol:

    AMD playing with confidence now. That socket is... staggeringly big. Lol. I have no even remotely reasonable justification for one as I primarily game... but if they put good clocks out on at least one core I'd look at one of these for a massive upgrade. In fact I'd love to see AMD put work into the ability to have one crazy single core mixed with high core / threads. ie. If they could get one / core to 4.5ghz and the remainder were comfortably clocked lower at say 3 on a flagship that might be a goer - obviously there are architectural reasons this might be hard.

    Still, a man can dream - all the benefits of ridiculous core counts and slashing single threaded performance in a neat TDP package. :weirdo:

    I just like how AMD doesn't seem to be gimping PCIe lanes for the Threadripper chips...

    I really hope they don't as it'd be a great selling point over Intel.

    The cheapest X299 chip I could get away with is the 7900X and that's supposedly a $1k USD CPU! Anything cheaper only has 28 PCIe lanes.

    I wonder if they'll push forward a chip with more cores to counter the 18 core 7980X? Shouldn't be too hard to do considering Epyc is a similar size and goes up to 32 cores...

    Seems kind of a dick move for AMD to call it the X399. Maybe Intel should call their next one AM5...

    Please, please don't let me slip and bend those 10 million pins... Fuck that is one huge LGA socket. I wonder if AMD will use stronger pins than Intel do now they've finally gone down the LGA road.
    I like it :thumbup:

    I found it interesting that the IO plate apparently has an OLED display, which can display a .gif, text or logo, or even :shock: a temp or rpm.. I'd love to see a pic of the IO.

    both are asrock. still, I'd prefer the mobo on the left that says 10 Gig Ethernet ;)
    screw that intel ethernet stuck in the dark ages like the rest of their silicon.

    AMD have had LGA sockets for 10yrs+, but only appeared once on a desktop platform with the I'll fated 4x4 platform. This new socket appears to be the first time they've used a staggered pin layout though

    all chips
    the other guy
    44 for the 7900x and above down to 28/29 and 16 for the also rans

    http://wccftech.com/intel-core-x-core-i9-7900x-vs-core-i7-6950x-cpu-benchmarks/

    pretty quick though but looking at that how much quicker than a clocked up 6950 really.

    shame the other guy had to drastically reduce prices and rush the launch :) your welcome.

    few hours till the webcast hopefully good news will drop

    You know you could just edit your other post rather than making another post. That said they said they are launching RX Vega at Siggraph 2017 which is end of July. How is that not new info?

    As for the stuttering, who knows what that was. All they said was it was running at 4k, but didn't say what fps was.
