    This is really good news for the people interested in buying an HT 8 core CPU. Especially the R7 1700 Ryzen CPU which is less than 400 EUR.

    Not really, a 7700k sells for 390 Euro in my country and a R7 1700x at 470 Euro with the same performance will not sell that good.
    I would buy the 7700k because i already have a good board for it.

    At the same time the R7 1700 at 390 Euro is a fail.

    Those prices look really good, now let's hope the performance is adequate.

    Here a 7700k can cost up to 450 Euro easy :banana:

    Will the 3 chips listed here have unlocked overclocking? if so what is the main difference between them or did i miss that?

    Hm, taking this with a grain of salt given that I cannot comprehend currently what the difference between a 1700 and 1700X in that scenario would be.

    Those two certainly do look interesting however.

    If it turns out they're all the same but binned differently we might be in for some nice OC results.

    All Chips are unlocked and can be overclocked when using an appropriate chipset (meaning: not the budget chipset).

    I guess they differ in terms of frequency and maybe TDP.

    Hopefully samples for well known testers should be out in 2-3 weeks, so we could get a performance peek before release.

    Almost double the cost for a 400Mhz boost increase. Something is not adding up here. I'm getting a sinking feeling something will be locked down in the non-x sku's.

    R5 1600X, 6C 12T is the one I'm most interested in.

    If they get the price between a 7600K and 7700K & comes within 10% of Kaby Lake IPC & clock speeds, it should be a winner.

    I would still rather buy a 8c/16t CPU than a 4c/8t.

    R7 1700 for 380Eur for the same price as i7 7700k.

    considering Intel 4 channel memory, maybe the "Pro" is for that....

    Do you realize that i7 7700k has 4/8 ct while R71700x is 8/16?

    No R9 line...

    So what? The only thing that matter is performance (aka execution time) of your target application.

    Looking good! I wish all the best to AMD.


    BUT: Having so many (older?!) games that max out one (1) CPU core, where 4.0 - 4.5 GHz isn't enough, I would prefer a 6GHz+ quad cores over a 4GHz octo cores...

    Also, the now old AMD's Phenom IIs were having a TDP of 125W while those newer CPUs have 65 to 95W. I would really prefer a newer 14nm CPU with a TDP of 125+W that performs like a BEAST!

    We have to realize that those electronic manufacturers prioritize newer CPU designs that perform better (more efficiently(Perf/Watt)) rather than offering drastically faster CPUs... Soon, only a 100W Power supply would suffice for a High End gaming machine (barely outperforming a decade old overclocked 1000W PC)

    These prices look to be about what I expected, now we just need reviews so we can see the real world performance numbers. I expect the R7 1700X and R7 1800X 95W parts to have a bit more overclocking headroom than the R7 1700 65W.

    :stewpid: You can get the Intel one that has 140W TDP and have it double as your heater. Please, not everyone can afford high electricity bills. :bang:

    Oh, someone beat me to it :biggun:
