The only reason to wait would be because your CPU is already powerful enough for your needs. But even then the surprise with Zen will be pretty meh since it wont offer anything better than whats already out on the market

The CPU market is pretty boring and have been for many many years

not quite, it would be worth the wait if its priced decently.
assuming they'd price their CPUs at mainstream price ($300 6C/12T and $200 4C/8T) then thats quite worth the wait.

furthermore, AMD had been generous with their overclockability, thus a $100 2C/4T would be well worth it.

According to AMD there is no 4 core coming for the FX enthusiast chips, only the APU range.

But yes there will be a 6C/12T and 8C/16T.

Hopefully two of each cpu ie lower binned and clocked for cheaper, all should be unlocked for OC unlike intel's locked junk.

i don't think they'd have that perfect of a fabrication, its impossible to make a high-core count CPU without encountering a batch with defects.
e.g. a normally 8C/16T batch would have a few CPUs with 2~3 of their cores in a defective state, which they can either disable to 6C/12T and 4C/8T variants.

First revenue in 2017 and paper/enthusiast launch in 2016 was the plan. I don't see any reason for concern.

If an 8 core Zen chip competes with the 6900K, expect a $1,000 price tag

I doubt that'll happen again, but you never know. If AMD is looking to claw back marketshare and make a decent margin per die they've got tons to room to undercut Intel.

He's not a mod though, but I think this tinfoil hat idea may not be so tinfoil hat after all. Both love talking about AMD struggles.

they're putting good prices on their RX-400 series, it won't be unusual if they changed their ways with their CPUs as well.

a 4C/8T processor for $200 would put intel's i5s and i7s in a tough spot. yessir.gif
since both intel's i5s and i7s will have to be brought down to a cheaper price, doesn't matter if its skylake or kabylake.


plus they've been pushing for "budget VR" on their slides, i doubt they'd recommend a $200 GPU for VR, only to recommend an overpriced CPU.
as such, theres a very high probability that we'd be seeing a 4C/8T CPU at around $200 price point.

with a $200 CPU and $200 GPU at hand, they'd be placing VR capable rigs at a much lower cost of roughly $600 as opposed to $800+.

The have been hanging on by the skin of their teeth in-terms of market share in the GPU market for years. Yet they still price their products at or just under Nvidia's prices.

And Lisa Su has said that they don't want to be the value brand. There's really no reason to believe they will price their products aggressively. They might not go off the deep end like they did with the FX-9590 but I firmly believe they will price their products to match intel’s pricing if the performance is there.
