    The reality is the success of the Ryzen caught all the board makers by surprise and they are prolly struggling to ramp up production and intoduce new models into the lineup.

    The top 3 (Asus, Giga and MSI) only bought out about 5 models each for the AM4 at launch. MSI alone lists 18 models for Z270.

    Even though I've jumped in, the reality with the benefit of hindsight is that I should have waited for the wave 2 products to come out before jumping into AM4. Better/More cooling options (waiting for claim AM4 brackets or new production stock with AM4 bracket... fuck that) and more mature mainboards.

    I know Linus is a bit of a dick, but in his GTX1080ti review he did it on 2 systems.

    A 7700k at stock, and a Ryzen 1800x, man they trade blows with the Titan.
    It is interesting to see the results from 2 different systems, some games are better on Ryzen some are better on the 7700k.
    Same with the Titan X.

    Oh and he did it at 4k!!

    Either it's really good and they're biding their time (doesn't make sense)

    or they'll still ironing out the wrinkles which is far more likely since it's a new architecture, unlike what NVIDIA have been doing with their iterative/derivative dealio.

    They're either trying to play a slow hype build game, or they're hitting internal delays repeatedly... fun times indeed.

    Intel spent 7 of those billions buying McAfee . Maybe thats why AMD still have market share . I love the underdog and am happy to cheer on some competition .

    News just in;

    AMD has well and truly shaken up the CPU market with the release of Ryzen processors, led by the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X. Now that Ryzen is here, we're already hearing about Zen 2 - which will be known as Pinnacle Ridge.

    The current Ryzen family of CPUs is known as Summit Ridge, but Zen 2 and Zen 3 should deliver better IPC performance, new features, and other goodies. Ryzen in its first-gen appearance had a 52% IPC (Instructions Per Clock) over the previous generation AMD CPU architecture - while Zen 2 and Zen 3 should deliver 5-15% improvements in IPC.

    During a recent AMA on Reddit, AMD CEO Lisa Su said: "In new product development, you always learn a lot and we have our list of thingsthat we are adding to zen2 and zen3 to get even more performance going forward".

    AMD's new AM4 socket, that takes Ryzen, will take Zen 2 and Zen 3 processors in the future. Better yet, we're looking at up to 65% more IPC improvements over the older Excavator CPU architecture, with the aim of Zen 2 and 3 featuring support for higher clocked DDR4 RAM and lower CPU clock speeds. AMD will continue to nail the 14nm FinFET process, so we should expect the nodes to continue with better yields, and chips that have higher default clock speeds thanks to the refinements along the way.

    some of it looks to good to be true with amd having a large lead in deus ex at all res vs other reviews where there equal when gpu limited and ~20fps behind when cpu limited

    then farcry is just weird with 5820k beating 7700k when both cpu & gpu limited which also goes against other reviews where 6900k\5960x get smashed by it when cpu limited then leveling out at high res

    bug with the latest nvidia drivers or just something with there test rig?
    or has nvidia worked some black magic into there latest drivers allowing them to shift gpu workload to unused cpu cores< be nice but results are to inconsistent for this to be the case

    Not sure if this has been posted yet or not but since it is still listed on the webpage there seems to be an error in this product - title advertises 2x8gb but inside the add its 2x16gb... One would hope its 2x16gb for the speed / price :)

    It's on the cards, just got a 1080 so I will be looking to add it into the loop.
