This is really making me hold off from upgrading my 1700 to 3700x.
Its not that I would not love the 3700x as it stands now but I already own an early first gen ryzen from the period prior to the linux kernel fix. So waiting this time feels sensible regardless of how much I want to support AMD.
I really look forward to seeing the results from der8auers survey and how this all turns out.
He certainly likes to change things up. I would never have contemplated beating a dead cow.
