    Dayum, I don't need 2700X but I want it so bad at those clocks / value! Sweet for those upgrading.

    I’m so glad we see some much needed competition for a change.

    Really hoping they deliver. Obviously not expecting the promised 10% perf. increase everywhere, but change and progress are always welcome

    So, there was no point to wait April 19, as some shops already started selling it last week.

    MSRP is same as Zen-generation Ryzen. Wouldn't call them cheap. 2700X cost same as 8700K in retail. It's might be more powerful in all threads, but it's still slower in a single thread and in games. Memory is still slow. So, they still compete each other.

    Sadly 12LP didn't improve much. 2700X only overclocks in average to 4.3 GHz from 3.7 GHz. 4.5 GHz is quite a fortune.

    Next to wait is 8-core Coffee Lake Core i7 for LGA1151-2, probably 8800K. May be somewhere by late august on Gamescom. May be earlier.

    I would really like to see how the 2600x compares to the 8700k. If it's anywhere close in performance that would be amazing value.

    2600X clocked 3.6@4.15 GHz. Not really the floor, could be faster, but still.
    Close to 8700K at stock clock, but still slower. And significantly slower in a single thread.

    Here is average air floor for 2700X

    Average air floor for 8700K for comparison

    It is cheap for 8core.

    Intel had 1000€ 8 core not long ago.. lol I payed 330€ for my 4Core back in 2013 and now it still costs ~ 280€..

    Im not going to buy this zen though, still have plenty of power left in this oc'ed 4770k @4.7GHz

    just noticed the extra cache these have 20mb instead of 16mb that might help attain the 10% performance boost they where saying along with the clocks.

    Looking forward for Hilbert's extensive review on this new puppies , anxiety has started kicking in as i'm unsure if i will get one 2700x to play with it and test maximum overclock on cpu and memory. It all depends on the reviews , exciting times ahead of us :)

    Well, Bulldozer was cheaper for 8-core) But one core was nearly twice slower as Intel's 4770k.

    So, single-thread performance and total multi-thread performance what is important. Number of cores is quite irrelevant for home PC.

    Although the 8700K has a single core clock of 4.7GHz so it does have a 600MHz frequency advantage.

    I think the 10% IPC is mostly due to the lower latency of the CCX units and cache more than anything else.

    Really funny comparison actually, he posted 8700K with 3200MHZ ram, 2700X with 2666MHZ ram.

    And cpu-z loves high ram speeds too.. If it were 3200 or 3400 MHz it would be a lot different.







    Why so offensive towards Amd?

    Bulldozer is a failed history, so was intel's Presscott few years earlier..


    Zen single core is effective enough for what it is.. If you rely so much on single threaded performance (10-15% maybe) in year 2018 then stick with intel, no one is forcing you not to.

    Really can't wait for the official review. I think to take a day off and enjoy the flood of benchmarks and geek info.
