Gigabyte already has a page on their official site which shows that the motherboards go on pre-orders in less than 24 hours so those of you who want to be the first to get the boards when they launch on 10th of August should definitely follow the pre-order pages.
The big packaging adds another piece of puzzle to the rumor that Threadripper CPUs may come with AIO LCS liquid cooler out of the box.
In the meantime, AMD today released a shot of Threadripper's packaging, teasing the CPU's appearance along with Vega at SIGGRAPH 2017, the expo is taking place in Los Angeles July 30 to August 3. Intel hasn't revealed the clock speed or amount of L3 cache for the Core i9-7960X, but the CPU in the Geekbench entry runs at a base clock 2.5 GHz and has 22 MB of L3 cache. Two high-end processors based on AMD Ryzen architecture [VIDEO] will become available in AMD-partner retails stores: the 16-core/32-thread 1950X, and the 12-core/24-thread 1920X.
In addition, Intel's core PC business is seen as stagnant, with its most recent forecast predicting mid to single digit declines in the PC industry for the year. Since the launch of the Threadripper 1950X processor is expected to happen very soon, we're almost certain more results are going to leak very soon. Net income was US$19 million compared to a net loss of US$40 million a year ago and a net loss of US$38 million in the prior quarter.
Su said AMD is addressing the problem in two ways: One, the company's customers are trying to segment the market between mining cards and true gaming cards. The CPU has 16 cores and 32 threads.
The kicker is in the price though, with this particular AMD chip retailing for just over US$200, while Intel's chip costs just over US$400.
So far this year, the stocks of chip companies like Nvidia Corp. While AMD's chipset names are obviously meant to one-up the Intel offerings, they make things much more confusing for new builders trying to buy compatible components.
"Given high expectations we believe the company needs to begin showing their new products can begin to drive an inflection in results", Stacy Rasgon, a Bernstein Research analyst, wrote in a note this week.
In this article I'll be reviewing AMD's Ryzen 7 1700. The retail product packaging is really unique and probably not something that you will casually throw into your recycling bin. As Blender demonstrates the potential for a performance per watt advantage is there, but it's not being realized in common desktop workloads at the moment. The virtual coins miners gain can be traded for hard currency, which explains why they're grabbing every GPU they can find to mine even more coins.
