    Hope some reappear. Some of the gear now is like playing need for speed underground. It’s tasteless tripe.

    https://youtu.be/MkO4R10WNUM?t=252 16 core chip under custom loop = 4.25ghz all core. Maybe they're delaying the 16 core chip to see if they can get higher clocks.

    Builzoid also mentioned that BCLK OC'ing is back on the menu so there will be more to these chips than bumping up the multiplier.

    Yeah but I bought my 2600 for what £145 a couple of months ago with a view to upgrading shortly after release but I'm not sure it's worth it now given that the 2600 does a pretty decent job of what I need it to. I get that other chips are different propositions but I was 100% upgrading and now I might just stick with what I have for the time being.

    if i have a 2600 i would not switch it for a 3600(x) unless there was a compelling reason. until we see how they overclock. there is no reason to chance right now.
    at the current used prices i may get a 2600x now and not a 3600x but i will wait a little longer and see how we get on

    Fingers crossed for some Zen2 support on my Corsshair VI x370. That's the whole reason I bought one of the top boards back in the day, for future support like this.

    Think 12c is out the window, that's fine, but hoping for 3700/3800x support

    Yeah I was thinking I was going to only get maybe 60 or 70 quid for it second hand in the next few weeks and the upgrade would be worth it but now I think Ill just stick for the time being at least. It's a capable chip, not stellar by any means but I dont have stellar parts to complement an upgrade so I think the middle of the road is fine for me just now. I get it different for other folks though.

    A sub £200 2700 though still looks good value,and is readily available.

    Some serious cash going to be spent if people go for a decent motherboard and CPU. I was thinking £250 for a motherboard and £350 for a CPU would get me a couple of rungs down from the high end. Looks like I need to rethink, the £700 budget could easily climb to £900. Threadripper doesn't look so expensive any more :p

    Can anyone hazard a guess as to when pre-orders will start?

    Apologies if this has been asked/answered already.

    Disappointed AMD are holding back the 16cores, entirely possible that demand in servers is going to be so high they might not ever see the light of day on AM4 for consumers.

    Surely that bought should be able to take a 12c?

    What was the point in it other wise
