    Glad it's now only a matter of a couple of months until the release of Zen CPU's. I don't think I have been so hyped for an AMD CPU since like forever.

    This will be a new Athlon64. AMD is making all the right moves.

    My 5820K @ 4.5Ghz system is less than 2 years old, but if 8 Core Ryzen is clock for clock faster than my CPU and overclocks to 5Ghz, ill upgrade to support AMD to show them that if they do good people will follow.
    I mean its unnecessary upgrade but it if Ryzen is all they say it is and faster than my Intel, it will last me for at least 5 years unless Intel comes out with something revolutionary.

    Also since its going to use DDR4, upgrading will be easy, just new CPU and Mobo, thats it, im sure the cooler holes will be the same like before, so my corsair 110i should work using the included AMD retention, if not im sure they will sale these separately.

    Unfortunately this could well mean retailer price gouging & shortages well in to Q2/Q3 2017.:mad:

    AMD promises are getting in tone with what we want.Just deliver, don't over-hype, don't jinx the prices and tables will be turned.

    Think half filled :)
    Its a chance for YOU to make some money if you hurry up and pre-order all as soon as benchmarks are out, if shops limit it to one CPU, than pre-order in every retailer and etailer in your country.

    Hi there

    You are not alone, right now I'm on same boat, have 5820k OC to 4.5Ghz and if Ryzen delivers performance in rendering then I will upgrade in heartbeat as 5960x or 6900k cost too much for my liking

    Regarding the CPU coolers and mounting some companies confirmed they will be selling or will be sending free upgrades for people interested

    We will see what performance will bring us Ryzen I just hope we will get good CPU with reasonable performance and good price as Intel still sticking with 4c/8t

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    All the Phenom lineup did was increase the core count to 4 while intel released Core2 and won the lead.

    Phenom was THE disaster.

    6/12 is already reasonable price, it costs a bit less than top of the line 4 core i7.
    If AMD sells 8/16 for same price as intels 4/8 i7 than its a win.

    I hope the 4 and 6 cores are released at the same time as the 8 cores, or at least a matter of days apart. Since my next rig is really only focused on gaming, I don't really have a use for an 8c/16t CPU.

    The overclocking support doesn't surprise me. AMD is throwing everything they have at Ryzen and Polaris. They need to do everything they can to entice people to buy these products. Right now the only weaknesses they have are their high-end chipset (which is good enough for just about anyone's needs, but a little underwhemling) and a lot of skepticism due to Bulldozer.

    I cant name the exact games, but in last 2 years many games been optimized for 6 cores, that you actually see a deference between 4 core and 6 core.
    So getting 8 is the next logical step, also you can run more stuff in paraelel
