    My understanding is in order to have the over 8 cores per CPU they need this in order to increase the CCX count on AM4's and also TR3. I will need to see how this performs on the TR3 before claiming they need to go back in order to go forward.

    Updated DRAM Calculator + New guide to tuning DDR4 for Ryzen 3 from Hardware Unboxed, great as usual:

    It looks like AMD is just as serious about the Radeon group jumping forward as the Ryzen / Epyc performance jumps:

    That score seems possibly legit. Check out the ST on the 3700X or 3900X for comparison.

    Then remember it is on Linux. Our 1950Xs can hit very high scores in Linux. So if you estimate 15-20% improvement by generation and look at it being a Linux score, it does seem fairly reasonable. We'd need to use the mainstream chips to estimate boost frequency also, which is higher, while taking into account that windows has gimped gb4 performance.

    I forgot what my recent gb4 in windows 10 was.

    I think it is legit but it is just a rumor/leak for now. If true though, wow. This just roasts the competitions rump.

    Lots of more detailed OC'ing / Memory tuning suggestions for Ryzen 3 from LTT. Here's an example of the benefits to be seen in FPS improvement:

    Here are the highest per CCX OC's for LTT's CPU samples, done in Ryzen Master:

    Overclocking AMD’s 3rd-gen Ryzen CPUs is pretty different from previous generations – So it’s time for an update to our Ryzen overclocking guide!

    I am wondering with TR3 if the 16 core will not be made at all? I think this may be true as the power requirement and TDP may be lower than originally spec'd for the x399. Also if there is no Threadripper 16 core they need not compete with the am4 3950x and can start from 3960x for the 24 core etc..

    Edit; I guess there will be a 16 core; https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/18683463

    well its was just like before with the highest ryzen and lowest TR being equal at 8 cores. difference for interested buyers would be the surrounding platform, pcie channels, ram channels, etc.

    See, I want that 32-core, but don't know if I could justify it, whereas the 16-core replacement for my platform would be a fair uplift in performance! But I agree, the lowest core count TR and the highest core count mainstream.

    Now, once 5nm gets here, who wants to take bets that the 45% area reduction compared to 7nm (only around 28% compared to 7nm+) winds up being used, along with the move of the I/O die to 7nm, to double core counts on Epyc again to 128 cores around 2021? Any takers on that action?
