    Because of course Ryzen isn't powerful enough already :p This would make for a great workstation CPU :D

    Octocores are all r7. 16 core has to be r9.

    The chipset names are hilarious, trolling intel

    If Naples fits AM4 and supported by X3xx chipsets, then it might make its way out of the datacenter to the clients.
    And by the way, Canard PC is not that trusted. Ryzen 5 CPU clocks are not entirely what they reported earlier, at least not for all CPUs.

    Pardon my ignorance, but am I understanding correctly that gaming performance wise, this CPU would be completely uninteresting due to the low clocks (and 16 cores won;t be utilised)? Thus that makes it pretty much interesting to encoders and sorts, but not us?

    If so, is there a possibility that we will see cut down versions as with the 350 chipset, that will allow for, for example, this new processor to have 8 cores, with quad channel memory performing in the same range as let's say a 1700 or 1600 gaming wise?

    Uh oh now you are talking about a $1000 AMD cpu. Does AMD really want to go there? Seems to me what we have here is a Moore's law infused wish list from AMD fans. But I have been wrong before!

    Some of the people at Canard PC are Ex x86-Secret, who were very respected back in the day, and still are.

    This is not an AM4 socket, its a Server socket spinoff, which will require its own motherboard.
    equate it to Intels Socket 2011 variant.

    Its a logical decision to make, having multiples of 4/8 throughout.
    8c/16t (6c/12t - 4c/8t) Dual-Ch Mem Desktop
    16c/32t (12c/24t - 8c/16t) Quad-Ch Mem HEDT
    32c/64t (28c/56t 24c/48t - 20c/40t) Oct-Ch Mem Server

    Allows you to fully use the different Yield bins, and minimize waste.

    Yes, this is a Workstation chip.
    Lots of threads, not so much speed overall.

    It will be a different socket from AM4, so a dedicated motherboard will also be required.
    There might be a 8c/16t version with quad channel memory, but whether its worth the cost to gamers is debatable.

    Why amd would not want to go there? What kind of company can expand to diferent demographics and they choose not too?

    As for the gaming part no you do not want to invest in a 16/32 cpu for gaming :p

    I can see this CPU as a Server CPU as well. Whether or not AMD has a Server motherboard in the works that supports 2 CPUs is unknown. Makes me wonder how well this CPU fairs up against the Xeon CPUs in its class.

    Also I can see this CPU being used to the User who does alot of Virtualization with virtual machines.

    HandBrake would love this !

    Good thing I didn't rushed buying the 1800X, while fast, it didn't seem like a really big upgrade to the 6800K running at 4.1Ghz (it would have been some 20-30% faster with all 8 cores)

    However, a 32-thread chip, even with lower clock... DAYUM ! That would be >100% performance boost to my current CPU.

    BRING IT ON !

    Call me ignorant. But wasn't it quite clear, that AMD will place a platform between the current consumer Ryzen release and the server platform.

    Especially the chipsets are not really usable for a decent workstation setup (multi GPU plus storage controller plus 64GB+ Ram) and AMD would be stupid, not to get those customers on board too.

    I really like the Ryzen CPU performance, but I need my PC for more than just benchmarks and gaming and the current Ryzen release is no alternative to my socket 2011-3 setup.

    A $1000 AMD CPU that has double the cores/threads of the $1000 Intel CPU, so your price/performance ratio for workstation stays the same.

    Not in the next 3 to 5 years anyway. It will be worth it when the code evolves to use all the threads efficiently.

    Not a fanboy myself but I believe they have too much market share to be out of the game. Plus, some people still buy Intel cuz "it's the best" or something...
    Intel will need time to come up with something. Ryzen has taken AMD 4 years, Intel is bigger and has more resources but I'd say 1 to 2 years before any real response.

    Define: us

    This is a hardware site, that obviously caters to gamers since gamers are in general interested in hardware, but it's not a "gamers only hardware site" by any means.

    If the staff of this site would like to correct me, that's perfectly fine.

    If not, then who is "us" Incredible Lama?

    Doubtful, since an 8-core would not be defined as an "HEDT".

    Can't wait to see what Intel is cooking up to counter this...

    My next upgrade will be double the cores, so 16-core/32-thread sounds good.
