    Actually, I appreciate them not trying to show unrealistic performance. The company should show a baseline in performance. What I don't like is companies not giving reviewers longer periods of time to play with the platform when reviewing under embargo and many reviewers limiting the ram speed used to spec, which doesn't reflect real use cases. I don't mind if the company doesn't do it, but do mind if reviewers don't, and think it is a shame that they didn't show the memory tab in CPU-Z.

    Fully agree. I think that Samsung was working on a 3200MHz DDR4 ECC, but other than that. (Samsung has 4 lines of 3200Mbps DDR4, with the rest being 2666, 2400, or 2133, which 2133 and 2400 are the most common and why you see those as the base memory default speeds, even though XMP is overclocked from those)....

    Thankfully TR2 is not for servers. The Epyc 7551P goes for about $2,300 as it is so this would cost even more. This makes even more sense too as with those 2 non direct memory access CCX's performance hit keeping these from competing against the Epyc chip(s). I would like too see $1,500 as well for these but I think it will be higher. I could easily see upwards of $2,000 if the performance holds up.

    Dropping the price too $1,300 - $1,500 would be like death to Intel. They would be forced to sell that 28 core for well under $2,000 from the original $10,000. Then again they could sell it for $6,000 so that they can say it is on the market even if they never sell one.

    interesting tidbit about these posted links that i noticed:

    the german cyberport listing notes 3.4 Ghz in the title with 4.0 Ghz boost. however, in the description below it also mentions 3.8 Ghz. yes of course, now u might say: cant trust that listing because they just copy pasted it from the old ryzen parts. BUT: TR1 doesnt have a distinctive 3.8 Ghz base or boost, so why is it included? Add to that the 3DMark listing that popped up, also stating 3.8 Ghz.

    so my assumption: 3.4 Ghz base, 3.8 Ghz all core boost, 4.0 Ghz regular boost :)

    That could be possible, or just a typo.
    Look at the ryzen 1700.
    It has a base clock speed of 3ghz, all core boost at 3.2 GHz and single core boost to 3.8ghz.

    It could be that tr2 has a base clock of 3 GHz, 3.4 GHz boost all cores, and 3.8-4ghz single core boost.

    Yes the 12nmLP did drop voltages and allowed higher frequencies, but we're still talking about 32 cores here.
    If my 1700 was quadrupled, its tdp goes to 260w with frequencies unaltered.
    So, depending on how well AMD fine tunes tr2… 3.2-3.4 GHz base, 3.8 GHz all core boost and 4-4.1ghz single core boost might be doable.

    It could also be CPU0000 is an engineering sample too.

    While things are still in the air... may I just say that I already mentioned the price will likely be lower than $2000 for 32c TR2 and possibly more in line with $1500 (lower even maybe) considering previous AMD's pricing of TR line vs Ryzen and the fact that 12nmLP dropped costs?
