Ryzen's 4 Core CCX limit hurts when the multicore performance. This count should to be improved. But we will have to wait and see.
From a consumer product viewpoint, the 8 core versions is more like two quad cores in a single die. Ryzen has lower latency between cores in the CCX than intel, but the current limit at 6 cores really slows it down. Moving data between the two sets of L3 CCX modules slows things down. Granted Intel's old Core2Quads were nothing more than two dual cores on a single package connected via the NB, and that thing ended up working out pretty well. So for what it is Ryzen is still a great design as the two ccx's are on the same die. But a move to even 6 cores in a CCX would really spice things up.
Also really hoping for Clock speed of 4.5-4.8 with an OC.
All I know is Ryzen 2 is my next system upgrade. Sandybridge has severed me well, and Ryzen's clock speeds are not as high as I would like. But the performance at its current clock speed is pretty solid IMO. Just give me 4.5+
Moved my Server into a Ryzen platform with ECC memory running ESXI and Virtualized everything. Honestly can't be beat for the price. ESXI 6.7 works great on the platform. Intel's going to need to step up their game, as AMD has a solid product in this market and only thing slowing them down is not having enough mainstream push.
