 I have little doubt that AMD *won't fill the 500-$1000 cpu market

Coach, this is gonna fill the higher end market than just $500 - $1000. 16 cores 24 threads will slaughter Intel.

should be interesting once released!

It will be interesting if they do release a dual socket mobo that supports two 16 cores chips. I like the idea of having 32 cores.

Well some rumors right now are x390 will support the 16 core CPU while the X399 will be dual socket. Assuming all this is true, we might have the option to build a 32 core PC with quad channel ram in a few months.

If AMD, can actually pull this off? That;s aiming for Intel's Jugular Artery. Total Head Shot! ....so *ucking cool.
Whoops. Wrong button.

This is the exact reason I have been holding off on rebuilding my main rig. There will be a lot going on over the next year. I think I am going to at least wait until 2018 for a complete rebuild. Besides my Devil's Canyon is running strong at 4.8 GHz for now.

Yup. Me too. New AMD stuff will be way better in a years time. Zen+ (2). AMD has a great "kick at the can" here. Their best effort in 10 years.
Currently upgraded my GPU and some water. New case and PSU 1 year ago. New AMD platform 2018. I work on a 2 to 5 year plan.

heating your bedroom while feeding the pockets of power companies.

That's really a misleading statement. Twice the power consumption of an idle CPU is still negligible. If you aren't using the computing capacity that you have, then who cares about a few extra watts, it won't heat your room noticeably faster.

If you are using all the computing capacity, then heating the room or power bills are the least of your concerns.

Kaby Lake 7700K with 4 cores comes in at 91 watts while Ryzen 7 1800X with 8 cores comes in at 95 watts. Double the cores for a 4 watt usage penalty? Sign me up! Well actually I am partially signed up already as I upgraded my home server to a Ryzen 5 1600 with 6-cores. :)

What are we using all these extra cores for though is the question.

Yaa.
So, running Crysis, listening to the Rolling Stones, rendering a 30 min 4 k video; all at the same time.
Way beyond me. I'm just gonna stick with the 6/12 combo. I've been analyzing and the 1600(x) would be 2.83763333 times faster than my fx-6300.
Funny thing the 1600 almost costs 3x as much as my 6300.

Well 1800X is for productivity...it's shown not to be much for gaming currently as it doesn't do well with low threaded tasks like games.

1600X will prove to be a sweet spot, especially for those doing things in the background like Twitch.tv or recording their gameplay.

Friend bought the i7-6800K hexacore and saw significant performance boot to his BF1 game.

In my house I could be streaming 4 HD videos at once. So the more cores the better for that task and others that my server does.

On my main rig the extra cores will be put to use for transcoding video, audio, etc. when I upgrade. And now that the cores race is on, I think we will see more coding happening to take advantage of the extra capacity. At least I hope so.....we've had multi-core processors for some time now and it seems like coding to take advantage of them has been limited, especially in gaming.

...It certainly is. 6/12 would be nice, but 8/16 would be nicer. I dont game as much (1080p forever)...and want to get back into some productivity.

I hope you're listening MicroSoft. My Zen build will likely be 16.04 LTS Ubuntu or a Mint derivative. I'll be keeping Windows 7 (Retail) on my old Fx-6300 platform because/.....Apparently Win 7/?................ This is it for me. I'm starting a new thread on this. 16.04, snap packages? 16.04.02?... Dont miss out.

impressive, if the 16/32 CPU specs are real. 3.5ghz stock at 155w.

I'm sure the specs are somewhat valid.
http://techreport.com/news/31919/ryzen-threadripper-cpus-will-offer-16-cores-and-32-threads
I would have stuck with Ryzen though, instead of "ThreadRipper"?
...anyway, more at computex, just 2.35 weeks away.
