Wanted to thread Necro so we can all look back at our comments from the not to far past now that we actually know where Ryzen sits.
So I'm glad that 6 core parts exist, although I'd have loved some even cheaper 8c/8t Ryzen parts for well under $200. So glad that ended up not being true still.
But, I'd like to point out that the pricing I listed was so damn close to reality it is scary. $275 isn't far from the $250 for the 1600x when you see they cut out the Wraith cooler.
$399 was DEAD ON for the 1700x and I even predicted the $500 cap on their top end, damn.
I may be off on the R3 though, and time will tell. $150 may be the cap and here is where we will see the 4 core no SMT I believe now. I'd like to think that some of these would do away with a single CCX in favor of a cheap IGP but I don't think that is in the cards. Save those for the APUs.
I'd still love to see some IGP maybe even on motherboards with select A320 boards though. Not sure honestly R3 will be worth it without IGP. It's hard to justify any video card purchase if they pump out 60-80 CPU up to about the $150 range for an R3.
Time will tell. Just died laughing reading people thinking I was crazy for my Ryzen wet dream pricing. It's what I hoped for and AMD delivered. Badass.
