[Anandtech] AMD Set To Launch Ryzen Before March 3rd, Meeting Q1 Target - Page 10

post #91 of 95
I'd say the hype's been more community sided this time anyways. I remember the run-up to bulldozer, that was a marketing disaster. AMD's done, what, 3 demonstrations now? The initial Blender test on that live stream for Polaris (I think, I can't actually remember where or when they did it. Just that they did it), the Ryzen preview, and CES.

They've been and kind of still are extremely tight lipped on Zen with almost nothing to go off of right now except rumors and iffy benchmarks.

I see wccf-tech also got this '28th february' thing,making this more volatile.lol

Can't because the person doesn't have physical access to it. He simply knows when he's getting the "go" to distribute (sell) the CPUs.
However you can for sure count on MINIMUM 3.6GHz base clock / 4GHz boost clock.

Purely estimated by me, I'd say no more than 3.8GHz base clock / 4.2GHz boost clock for the top tier 8C/16T, but that's just an estimation (not coming from a source)

The fact of the matter is that Dx12 and Vulkan are here and eventually devs will build up an arsenal of tricks to get every erg they can out of any given hardware. I plan to keep my current build project for five years, so I need to account for five years in the future.

No game to date has been able to BENEFIT from more than 6 cores.
And things won't change in the near future ( maybe by 2020 we might start seeing 8 cores utilized properly in games )

Blasphemy!! AMD don't do iGPUs that's Intel's game!!

Looking forward to those Ryzen APUs though, they could be killer.

That i/we know already, from canardPC . F4

The more I think on it, there is a very real chance AMD could take over and dominate the Prosumer market. Skylake-E or X or whatever, seems like it's going to be a long ways off still with Purley production only being able to meet demands of a select few high end clients and Broadwell-E being priced into the stratosphere, that market seems prime for zen to step in.
