    This isn't happening, the improvements from summit to raven ridge were because of a bug in those particular ryzen processors causing l2 access to be 17 cycles instead of the designed 12.

    Threadripper doesn't have this issue.

    Yeah, I remember having plenty of problems with my Haswell system as well. For some reason my RAM was unstable with a half set; a single stick was perfectly stable but inserting the other one would produce constant problems (and it wasn't even overclocked). Like you, I ultimately swapped them out for another model, which then worked perfectly.

    I've certainly had my share of issues with my Ryzen system but it's not something that's unique to AMD, especially for a brand new platform. Currently, all my Ryzen PCs are running great.

    Yes, it is very probably a mobile chip. Seeing as the 2700U is 4c/8t, I doubt the 2800U is going to have more than 6c/12t. I'm sure it has more GPU cores. It seems for now, AMD is prioritizing mobile for the better GPUs. I suppose this makes sense, since it's a more competitive market that they traditionally had very little strength in.

    I'm glad that AMD is giving INTEL a run for it's money. What people have said it true - what would have happened if AMD packed it in? Intel would have all the market share. Very similar to Microsoft. To bring out a consumer grade 8C/16T CPU that OC's well and is cheaper than the 8700K and faster in most respects, except single core is a great achievement. In AUS a 2700X is $40-$50 cheaper than the 8700K. Although I'm quite happy with my system at the moment, and am not planning on upgrading for 5 or 6 years, but when I do, I will probably - if the current trend continues, would definitely consider going AMD over Intel. My current system is intel, only because at the time of purchase, AMD did not have anything competitive. I'd LOVE to get my hands on a 2700X, but as I said, for me, my current system does what I need it to do, so there is no point upgrading until I need too, I'd just be wasting my money and for my purposes, not see an increase in performance.

    I hope that the success that AMD is having with their Ryzen CPU's that they can do the same to NVIDIA and bring out GPU's that are competitive I.E. Same or better performance for less dollars. I always had AMD GPU's . My last AMD GPU was the hd7990 xfire and it did me for 5 years before I upgraded to NVIDIA GTX 1080 SLI. This is the first NVIDIA GPU I have ever had before then every single gpu I owned was amd. I would go back to an AMD card(s) if, as I said they can match or beat NVIDIA for performance and price.

    I hope that people keep supporting AMD and their products, congrats on the comeback AMD.

    Overstate much?? All the Crysis games run perfectly on my Ryzen 1800X w GTX 1060 at max settings. How am I "crap out of luck"?

    Think about it: as such a demanding gamer, and so reliant on CPU power, why haven't you upgraded already? Because Intel was screwing you with measly gains each year! Now, finally, they have to get moving and you are going to reward... Intel? Or AMD, who have now fully delivered a miracle line of chips that easily best Intel on average and cost less!! That this comparatively tiny competitor could even do that should tell you how much Intel was lagging!!

    Get a clue. AMD doesn't run on air. They desperately need sales and they've given us every reason to choose their stuff when at all possible. To niggle about a few FPS in some CPU-bound game is selfish and short-sighted. If you're ready to upgrade, go with AMD this time at least. It's obviously going to be a good choice technically and even more obviously a good choice in the big picture.

    How hard is it for people to understand this?

    Considering the only information about supreme commander forged alliance and ryzen seems to be from people being "worried" about its lower frequency potentially being a problem, whereas people who actually have ryzen are saying they have great FPS no matter the situation (in supreme commander forged alliance), it seems your "worry" is only that, "worry", rather then reality.

    Intel has a "storyteller in chief". for real, i know him personally.
    i'm going to AMD today (1 AMD Place) to meet with friends for lunch.
    normally this office is all cubicle-world, but if they have any show-and-tell i'll let you know.

    Some of you may have seen me mention in previous posts that I am starting to piece together a new build. I have been torn between the latest Ryzen and the 8700K. Some of you pointed out the fact of what Intel has been doing over the years. So I have finally decided I am going with AMD this round based on that since the differences are much more minimal then they have been in the past. I honestly don't upgrade but like once every 5-7 years now. Now my question is, should I go with the current latest Ryzen, or should I wait for one of these? I am hoping to build by July. Thanks everyone

    I think that is more of an Adobe issue than AMD's. Moreover, as in games, some release software favouring one platform that the other, just to gain sales and followers.
    But I could me wrong, though.

    Current 2000 series should be fine, either the 6 core or 8 core will last you years.

    idk where you are but the X version ($20 more) is in the stores now.
    and..$20 for better clocks and getting it a month or two earlier = win.
