AMDs Capsaicin event isn't actually being held inside SIGGRAPH, they're hosting it at a separate private venue nearby. They could stream if they wanted to.

If it still has all those PCIe lanes, someone would want it. Cryptocurrency miners, for a start.

They seemed more pumped over threadripper then vega, the crowd knows what to hype.

It's pretty obviously ducted in from the bottom part of the front intake.

Now that you mention it, AMD and Dell definitely missed the boat on by not plastering CABALs face on the side in all it's poorly rendered early 2000s glory.

It's great that they payed Linus to do that considering how he's made fun of vega every week in the WAN show and said their FE review was going to be extremely unkind. I wonder if they sat on that review cause of this, ha.

...no, no, I call bullshit. There is *no* goddamn way they are pricing TR _THAT_ loving low! Goddamnit, AMD, what happened to not leaving money on the table anymore!? You don't have to do that in order to make Intel hurt anymore, your product is-

*noise of disgust*

Fine. Is that the bottom end of the stack? Are we only getting three variants of TR?

Supposedly there's a non-X version of each SKU coming as well, so no. There will be an even cheaper 1900 non-X.

Maybe they do though? Intel has flubbed SKL-X in the face of regular Ryzen, maybe Lisa just wants to keep putting more banana peels under Intel's feet and see what they do with this happening.

I'm surprised they're launching the 8C/16T version so early. A shame that the current Zen architecture still hits a wall at ~4.1-4.2 GHz because X399 is going to be crazy good for overclocking these relatively low core count CPUs. Huge heatsinks, a lot of room between dies, beefy VRMs.

Can't wait to see how double the cache and two extra memory channels perform in benchmarks compared to the 1800X.

Yes but I'd argue that big hook is X299/KBL-X/SL-X

Really interested to see the 8threaded chip benched. Be interesting to see how it runs with so much memory bandwidth.
