60 day money back or item exchange on both of those processors. Nice @WhiteWulfe
Running TN-Grid, its taking around 27.5 minutes for the (fma) tasks and around 30 min for the (sse2). Only tested it in Linux, is it faster in Win?
No idea if that's good or not.
Use the FedEx bill that comes in the mail as justification to hold off?

Of the 160 tasks I downloaded, one is an sse2 task and all the rest are avx tasks. FMA tasks look to be Linux only, so it won't be a direct comparison.*Edit #2* @emoga
My first results
point to Windows being much faster than Linux.
Myself, I appear to be doing 29:55 to 33:02 for TN-Grid gene@home PC-IM tasks on my 4770k that's running at the stock 3.9GHz, at least going by a quick glance through my history anyways.
Hard to say as to which is faster in the long run, but if they're at least similar I strongly suspect my audio/BOINC/djing rig will wind up being a Ryzen of some sort...... Errrrrrrrrrrrr.... tictoc, you're averaging 1315.10s based on the first nine results I saw, and I'm at 1746.50s averaged out for my nine current validation pending results. Yeaaaaaah, I'd say Ryzen is faster ^_^;;;
