    Did anyone read about AMD's "Capsaicin and Cream" event? They showcased Vega and revealed that the official name will be... Vega!

    So first the evergreens (Cedar, Redwood, Juniper and Cypress) and after a visit to the islands (Ca´cos, Turks, Barts, Cayman, Antilles, etc.) we're off to space now!

    The more reviews I read about the Ryzen CPUs the more I see them clobbering Intel's processors that cost almost twice the price.

    I'm still waiting a little bit and watching, there seems to be a bit of motherboard short supply as well as RAM vendors getting validated, and plenty of BIOS bugs being ironed out because it's a brand new platform and architecture. There is even a rumor about a Windows 10 issue that is causing Ryzen CPUs to have lower performance than on similar tests in Windows 7.

    But all in all AMD hit the nail in the head! They are selling like hotcakes and performing like monsters! Can't wait to prepare myself a list of components, order it, and build me a next generation crunching machine!

    Prices here in the Netherlands now are 359 (1700) - 439 (1700X) - 559 (1800X) Euro's

    This makes the 1700 comparable to the Xeon E5-2609 v4 in both price and cores/threads, the 1700X to the Xeon E5-2620 v4 and the 1800X to the Xeon E5-2630 v4.
    As these are all quite hefty Socket 2011-3 Xeon CPUs that require an Intel C612 chipset to be fully functionable (e.g. use of ECC RAM), you should compare the AMD AM4 boards
    with C612 boards as well. Cheapest Intel Socket 2011-3 mobo with C612 Chipset is (here) the Supermicro X10SRL-F at 289 Euro and when we limit ourselves to the traditional suppliers (ASUS, Asrock, MSI and Gigabyte) that rises to 312 Euros for the Asus Z10PA-U8. This makes the prices for the high-end X370 boards a bit more palatable, the MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium weighing in at 315 Euro's here. Only the ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming is more expensive: 325 Euro.

    There are of course Socket 1151 mobo's with the Intel C236 chipset that support Socket 1151 Xeon's. These are limited to four cores/eight threads however and have just four RAM slots (like the better present AM4 boards)

    Can't wait for the first Naples boards and CPUs......and boards that offer more than four RAM slots to feed those 16 -or more- threads.

    After the Ryzen 7-series -that can be compared to Intel's Socket 2011-3 offerings- AMD introduced the Ryzen 5-series that take on Intel's Socket 1151 i7-line, having either 4 cores/8 threads or 6 cores/12 threads at a price that makes you smile, compared to the i7 prices.

    So you went for the 65 Watt TDP variant with 8-cores/16-threads -perhaps the most interesting Ryzen, cruncherwise- Can't wait for the first user review here...

    Yes Dirk. It is replacing a Q6600 that is 10 years old and pumps out too much heat.
    I hope to build it this weekend. Will let you know how it goes crunching, from what I saw at Primegrid they appear to excel at Sieve but are not so strong at LLR tasks. I'll see for myself soon enough.

    Good at sieving and not so strong at LLR is such an often stated fact with AMD CPU performance that I am beginning to suspect that the PrimeGrid developers still use Intel compilers with 'cripple non-Intel' code. It can also mean that the performance under Linux is more equal -as there are no Intel compilers for the Linux OS.

    Compared to the Q6600, the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 has SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, F16C and FMA3 instructions enabled. It would be interesting to run the LLR code in debugger mode, so we can see which instructions are actually used by the code.

    I put mine together in a rosewill case then decided to swap cases to put a corsair liquid cooler on it from an am2 system :P I wasn't happy with the stock cooler performance on mine. It now seems to be running much cooler then the stock cooler. I also like the approximate 120 WCG SmashChildhoodCancer work units its doing a day.
