    Can this taken as an indication that MSI expects that the Ryzen platform will sell good? 20 models are a lot for start.

    If they're willing to go all in, then, I think Ryzen could be huge. We're talking affordable 8c/16T for the masses hopefully.

    Even if it is that is a lot of skus for one platform.. pretty silly tbh.

    there are 5? chipsets, x4 models per chipset and you can easily have 20 models..

    2-3 "game" specific models, then normal models from budget to premium.
    Dunno what's so strange here, seen the same stuff by intel, actually more.


    E.g. Asus Z97; A, C, K, plus, pro, deluxe, sabertooth, ranger, hero, formula, pro gamer, gene, impact, ws, gyphon,.. and this is already 15+ models, lol where is H and B chipset.

    Only 4 native SATA3 ports? and only 2 on the mainstream chipsets? And who uses SATA express..?

    Is that 8+4 CPU power I spy on the Titanium model?

    The sheer amount of boards with little to no difference(s) is what pretty much drove me away from ASUS.

    Not that I ever had an MSI board in my main rack yet but it's a good way to wind up on the avoid list.

    I have a question on:
    "With a X370 chipset and a Ryzen CPU nets you 32 lanes of PCIe connectivity, two USB 3.1 ports, and ten USB 3.0 ports. That's certainly not bad, but it puts the AM4 platform much closer to Intel's regular desktop machines than the Broadwell-E setups that come to mind when we talk about 8-core processors."

    Which part of this is actually relevant? I mean it gives you enough connectivity, even beyond enough, and the 32 PCIe lanes are more than enough, still not 40, but it's enough for sli/xifre with both gpus running at full x16, or 3 cards running at x8 (which as we all know is more than enough for any gpu in the consumer market) along with x8 left for ssds and stuff.

    I want the "S" model with pho-wood trim on the dash. That'll show everyone!

    I wonder sometimes if Amd and Intel reps actually come to our forums and read what we talk about, they seem to be spot on about what we wanted to see from them this time around! They are doing everything right so far let's just hope they don't screw up the price, that's the only remaining factor that worries me.

    20 different models sounds promising for mini ITX! As long as they have a B350 model in that size, I'll likely get it.


    @Stormyandcold
    lol nice graph

    Observation for Zen's PCIe 3.0 lanes...

    16x for Graphics cards (2x 8) +

    8x to connect to chipset, since It can't be 4x because X370 chipset has 8x 2.0 lanes and others controllers (SATA/USB3/3.1) +

    4x for M.2 Slot (if you don't use these 2 SATA buses from the CPU)

    Total = 28 lanes from CPU/SoC

    Bristol Ridge APU could have 4x limit to connect chipset and just 10 for Graphics card/other expansions...

    I have a spare Caselab mATX case lying around, so I'd prolly be looking for a good enthusiast level mATX mobo (IF there's such a thing). Looking forward to building an all RED team gaming rig........last all RED rig I had was an FX8350 + 2x HD7970 rig a while back, still have the FX rig running, but with a GTX670 instead.
