    CPU Rumors

    It appears the high end AMD Ryzen 1800X will retail for ~$499. 8c/16t 3.6GHz base. 95W TDP. This chip has been shown in some benchmarks to be within just a few percentage points of an Intel i7-6900K which costs ~$1050.

    Ryzen is expected to be released later this month/early next month.

    That's the thing I love about AMD, its not so price restrictive that Intel can be.

    AMD is going to use hyper threading? Is this new?

    Yes it is new. AMD will actually have real cores beginning with this series of CPUs.

    Now that Intel actually has some competition maybe they won't be quite as proud of their CPUs! Before they had the fastest game in town so they could price them accordingly .. this is great news.

    Intel 7nm chips in the future. Maybe not rumor worthy yet.

    I *REALLY* hope AMD has a winner this time. Not that I don't like my Intel CPUs, but I always like the competition and man, it would sure be nice to have that kind of firepower for a lower price too. I wonder if they will have any version of AVX?

    Also hearing all Ryzen CPUs, while stating a boost frequency, will actually have unlimited boost and will depend on the temperature of the CPU. Basically it will keep overclocking itself until it reaches a certain temperature, so the better cooling you have, the faster your CPU will run.

    Um, that sounds like a fail waiting to happen. Imagine a chip where certain bits get flakey at much lower temps, but the chip insists it can keep overclocking beyond that point because the overall temp is "fine." I hope they have an ability to set a limit regardless of temp or that it learns from "unexpected" crashes/reboots.
