This might be the shortest ever tapeout-to-board of a new processor class.
"report" says that the ES's are in the range of 2.8 to 3.2 baseclock but that they idle at 550mhz and about 5w or less (4 and 8 core). The larger 24? and 32 core are server socket items.
An 8 core 16 thread at 2.8 base ain't bad in my book.
hopefully they won't draw too much from the PCI bus!

There are reportedly four different versions of the Zen CPU architecture doing the rounds at the moment, though only two of them are of any real interest to the likes of us. Despite the exciting headline numbers of 24 and 32 cores, two of the chips are full-on server style, only usable in platforms far away from the humble desktop PC.
