    Nice to see that several of the reviews included 6 Core offerings from Intel.

    Skimming through, it looks to me like:

    [b<]Performance[/b<] 8 Core Intel > 8 Core Ryzen > 6 Core Intel [b<]Price[/b<] 8 Core Intel >>>> 6 core Intel > 8 Core Ryzen At these prices, 8 Core Ryzen makes a lot of sense for people whose work benefits from 8 cores.

    Jeff Bezos [s<] says NASA [/s<] should return to the Moon. I say, “Here, here!”

    All this ryZen reviews are like bread, many slices of the same bread.
    We have already estabilished that cross CCX thread scheduling with current WinX kernel is not optimal and yet no site benchmarked the cpu with a whole CCX turned off.
    Some went to bench hexacore. One tested L1/L2/L3/Mem latencies With all cores.

    Can we have our mighty gerbils here at TR HQ run some benches of ryZen with one CCX disabled ? Preferably at 4Ghz vs stock and 4Ghz 7700k.
    A test of L1/L2/L3/Mem latencies would be nice as well.

    One site throw in i7-5775c in the charts and it still bested 7700k in some tests.
    Do you still have it in stock ?

      Some under-volting and under-clocking would be nice as well……………………….

      There is core scaling review on Phoronix [url<][/url<]

        I know but Phoronix concerns Linux and 4.10 kernel (as used in the test) is said to already have scheduler optimizations baked in.
        I wanted to have a sneak peak of what we can achieve on WinX side of OS fence.

    Should you review the dog washer? Yes of course! Why ask when you could be getting that new dog smell today?

    I sense an overwhelming theme in the shortbread, a feeling I have not felt since the last time drfish mentioned…CHEESE. So, “sticking” it to us again, eh?

      Hey, it was cheese for a good 15 years before it became buffalo.

        Sorry guys, no buffalo gals coming out tonight.
