    A bit belated for Kaby Lake, but obviously since the socket and processor size are the same cooler master coolers are compatible. However, in the below press-release Cooler Master just sent they are a...

    What is this RyZen? I am quite bothered that more samples weren't shown at CES. They shouldn't be at a point in early January that they are still uncomfortable showing working samples. To ring more alarm bells, I read an Admin over at the ROG forums even admitted there were product delays due to major feature reductions to the chipset. The exact words were "there are delays with the product schedule so unfortunately it means there could be some major changes to the existing samples". Which matches up with the absence from CES and tape over feature display cards.

    I worry this slow trickle of 3rd party support is trying to keep the hope and buzz alive while we wait. We need this to be great.

    What it is? I think you can google that.

    How do you interpret "could be some major changes to the existing samples" as "major feature reductions to the chipset"?

    Please do explain.

    What if I were to say that it constitutes major increases in the featureset of the chipset? Got anymore non-news, fake news, alternate facts and stuff for us?

    All I can do is refer you to the exact quote:
    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthre...What-about-AM4&p=626123&viewfull=1#post626123

    The quote is what it is. Delays are never a positive (which is validated by the use of the word "unfortunately". Seventeen years of experience in PM confirms you never delay a product to make major changes in the form of feature adds at the last minute. And there is no need for the "fake news" stuff, I am just quoting an admin over at the ASUS/ROG forums.

    There are many, many positive rumors about this platform but there are also some worrisome signs. Just being fair.

    I read that quote. It says nothing other than mention that there's a delay.

    Delays are never a positive? I'd like you to explain that stance. Delays can be quite positive, especially in the tech and software business. Cutting major features is also not something you do in the last minute.

    And you are not "just quoting" you are exaggerating grossly.

    You're already set on buying it before even looking at official benchmarks? :3eyes:

    Sure, for him is a easy buy, almost 60%~55% IPC improvement over his x6 1100T, for me too, with Ryzen being on par with brodwell-E and my i5 2500 being at least 25% slower IPC wise, no wonders I am going for an 8 cores Ryzen chip, I am stuck on quadcores since 2008, and I don't have 1.1k for intel's cpus.

    Same here, Kaby Lake just isn't interesting.*
