    So, no longer will we have complaints of being off-topic. Here is the AMD vs Intel and AMD vs Nvidia thread as it relates to a system with the CPUs. Compare to your hearts content!!!

    @Papusan ; @TANWare ; @hmscott ; @Rage Set ; @tgipier ; @triturbo and everyone else I forgot to tag. I'm posting the link in both threads.

    So Nvidia and AMD GPUs can be discussed in relation to what is best for the system and which works best in relation to a CPU, but not just the direct which is better absent tying it to the system.

    To build on that, compare the 7700K record on LHe: http://hwbot.org/submission/3412512_der8auer_cpu_frequency_core_i7_7700k_7328.3_mhz

    A little on TR pricing:
    http://www.fudzilla.com/news/processors/43834-amd-entry-level-16-core-threadripper-could-cost-us-849
    http://www.pcworld.com/article/3200...yzen-prices-ahead-of-threadripper-launch.html
    https://www.pcgamesn.com/amd/amd-threadripper-price-rumours

    Last one: "Bits and Chips go on to speculate that the highest-clocked 12-core Threadripper variant will likely be priced higher than the entry-level 16-core, giving customers a choice between the highest speed or the highest core count. Though that sounds even more wildly speculative than their pricing."

    It is worth remembering the 12 core boost is 4.0 with 4.1 or 4.2 as the XFR speed. This means potentially having a 12 core all cores (with sufficient cooling) right behind intel, whose 10 core is looking at 4.3 on water.

    And here is the company's talk yesterday: https://seekingalpha.com/article/40...bank-america-merrill-lynch-global?part=single

    Hey, just so you guys know, an image only response isn't allowed via the site TOS, so watch yourselves.

    If you are gonna build emotional tension by making a funny image response, add some text explaining what you mean by it - so there is no confusion :vbbiggrin:

    IF that translates 1:1 to oc ability on air and water we should see kblx hitting 5.3 ghz stable vs. 5.2 on the 7700k (exceptions confirm the rule, naturally ;)

    awesome, this would give customers even more choice and close the frequency gap to barely one multi :) go TR baby! :D

    This is very interesting, X399 had more than 2x the interest by viewer count during the Computex 2017 AMD vs Intel coverage...he's got a long preamble, you could start at 4:10 given this lead in...

    Remarkably Poor Performance (viewer count) of X299 Coverage (at Computex 2017)

    i really wanna see amd destroy intel this yr, just so we can get better cpu next year from both companies. cpu hasnt improve much tbh and intel's new turbo boost max 3.0 is the only thing i hold interest in, and of course 8 cores at 5ghz would do too but thats simply uses too much voltage.
