    AMD has not send out samples to reviewers/media.

    Good way to start off on the Threadripper platform. :D

    Admittedly, yeah it's a little puzzling. The one proc that everybody wanted to see compared would be this one. Ah well, it is what it is.

    Dont' forget you get 4-channel DDR4 and a truckload of additional PCIE lanes for roughly 100$ more. Doesn't sound such a bad deal to me and you can always change into something with a little more byte further down the road ;)

    So this is basically 2 R3 (4CPU x 2 CCX (2 CCX are disabled) total 4 CCX) chips glued together?

    2 of the 4 'Die' are not disabled. Those 2 are basically empty packages.
    They left the 2 blank packages there for structural integrity.

    So is this the AMD version of the Kaby Lake-X from Intel ?

    I noticed AMD has a tendency to not release review samples of their lowest-tier products (per class). They tend to do the same for GPUs. I'm sure we won't see anything lower than the 1900X for socket TR4. I'm guessing they do this because they know these tend to be the highest demand products, since they're also the most affordable. That being said, people will request reviewers for some content, where they'll have no choice but to either ask AMD for buy the product themselves if they want to keep regular visitors. Since people have a tendency to feel the need to justify their purchases, the reviewer will have a positive bias toward the product, despite that it's lower in the totem pole and therefore less interesting. Meanwhile, AMD didn't have to pay for anything; in fact they got a sale.

    Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm just bored and thinking too much about this. Just a theory. And this isn't just an AMD thing, I noticed any tech company will do this.

    Well comparing ti the 1800x it does not you have to acount 150-200 extra for the motherboard and then there is at almost half the price the 1700 if you do not need the lanes and the workload you plan for it does not benefit from the quad channel then choosing 1900 over 1700 makes no sense

    I'm very tempted to get one but I will hold back. Going from a 5820k @4.5GHz on an existing x99 platform would mean I'd have to drop $549 on the CPU, then another $300-$500 on an x399 mobo. It would be an $850-$1050 upgrade to get just 2 more cores at similar single core performance to what I currently have. I could just as well get a 6900k, have the same c/t count and better single core performance.

    Regardless of the upgrade thoughts. This is deffinitly the way I'd go if I was building a new system. It's a great price for the spec & platform and 64 PCI-E lanes!!!! :eek:

    Come to me baby!!!!!
    going to Fry's later today to see if these are in stock.
    i settled on HH's recommendation of the aorus gaming 7 x399

    if in stock today, tomorrow i'll post pics and prelim numbers.

    Do we have any idea how much the interconnect latency will affect gaming performance? This chip is in stock and I'm almost ready to pull the trigger.

    perhaps they'd rather give the platform some time to iron out any problems and improve optimisation? Ryzen has had its fair share of bios tweaking and so forth, maybe sparing whiteheaven some time would allow for a more "fair" comparison between the 1900x and the 1800x/1700.

    Good thoughts. There's not any really compelling reason to upgrade from a gen 4 or higher HEDP system yet, unless you REALLY need those PCIe lanes. A few percentage points per core, for a whole lot of money.

    These platforms are really exciting, but you gotta keep things in perspective.

    then again, the intel would most likely not offer anything beyond another single cpu cycle (using same board),
    so the amd would definitely make more sense, as you could still get a 12 or 16C later without spending any additional money on the rest of the rig.

    I saw it can boost up to 4.2GHz with XFR, + lower latency and higher memory bandwidth and looks great for "budget" 8core cpu.
