    The EU gets so much screwed lately :banana:
    I think they're good prices, let's see performance.

    The eu isn't really that screwed normally prices include 20% vat where the US and here in Canada taxes are added after here they add another 13% on top

    EU is not a nice place to live in if you like PC hardware. I guess it could be for some other things needed in life, at least locally here and there, the differences between countries being huge in the EU in many ways. But then again, I personally live in one of the most expensive countries in the world, so it would be unreasonable to except PC hardware to be priced below outrageous either.

    They could take 20% off the EU pricing to show it without VAT, but I think people would have a meltdown and consider that dishonest.

    Pretty competitive prices still considering what an octacore costs at Intel. But... without benches it's pretty much useless to try and figure out if the prices are justified by performance.

    So I'm still hoping that HH gets his review samples in time for Ryzen's launch :D

    I have no backround in computer sciences in general (coding, engineering etc..) and I hava a couple of concerns about Ryzen I'd like to ask you guys:

    - Ryzen has weaker implementation of FPU/SSE/AVX than Intel and programmers seem to have used this instructions over the years to optimize their software for Intel chips.

    How could this impact the IPC on average (assuming there is mainstream software that make heavy use of this intstructions)? ¿Do having more cores/threads help to overcome this or one thing has nothing to do with the other?

    Could this weaker implementation of FPU/SSE/AVX cause a significant unbalanced performance response where Ryzen perform close to Intel in some tasks or software but 20% or 30% worse in others?

    I understad that the proper anwer is "just wait and we'll see in a couple of weeks", but I would really appreciate some technical tip about this instruction sets and their importance in recent (and old) software

    Thanks in advance

    Need to seed R5 1400x 4c/8t vs intel 4c/8t performance ...

    Wow, less than $500 for the flagship R7 1800X. It's looking more and more like my next CPU. Just waiting on the reviews for real world performance info.

    When I tell you the minimum wage here is set at 557 Euros, suddenly these prices don't sound that fair. Plus most of EU high taxes are to pay for the ****ing EU parliament...

    I know right? Those matches we've been seeing is just pure speculation and BS in my opinion. HH sure will have a sample as usual and post the results after the NDA lift.

    If AMD expects people to invest in a new CPU+MB combo, they have to price it right. Intel has the price too inflated, it's a guess game of how much?

    It's not. Their client compute division (which contains failed units that lose 4+billion per year), operated at a 63% profit margin. A conservative estimate of their CPU profit margin is around 70-75%. You can also roughly deduce this from transistor counts compared to GPUs. Graphics cards have extra PCB/VRM/Memory/Assembly costs, 2-5x the amount of transistors, almost 10x the die space, and they are still being sold at a profit in sub-$280 prices.

    The prices announced, if real, are completely fine for both us and AMD. I am curious on how the CPU holds in performance now, it was always clear that it would compete with socket 115x price-wise.

    20? Lol I wish. 25% over here.

    Looks promising. Let's hope AMD is up to the task to give Intel a kick in the balls so we can get good CPU war :vader:

    I miss when it was 15% here, more socialised there though.

    All relative compared to Intel though, and still good value.
    I have avoided memory upgrades until the board/cpu could also be done, timing wise this is looking ideal.

    I still love this CPU though.

    I think that this is nice price for slightly upgraded lJaguar + some untested hyperthreading support:)

    Now those are some Good prices, I was hoping to see something like this.8/16 for $316 would be a steal.Yeah I knew they cannot just launch a product at $1000 and expect people to start buying them right off the bat.If they continue doing well then things could change for them ( for the better) in the future.

    Good job Amd- I will be getting 8/16 cheepest sku or i7 7700k.

    Awesome, a 8c/16t CPU at around £300, that's great value if these are anywhere near Intel ipc

    The end is near intel (such i have an i7 6700k)
