Trays of AMD Ryzen CPUs Pictured

Feast your eyes on these trays of AMD Ryzen processors. Someone (likely an OEM gaming desktop builder) leaked pictures of several 12-unit trays of AMD Ryzen processors, revealing their package designs. A prominent "Ryzen" branding is printed on the integrated heatspreaders (IHS), besides the part numbers, and the various serial numbers.

The chips boast of "diffused in USA, made in China" markings, denoting that the dies (the actual chips) are made in the USA, at GlobalFoundries' swanky new fab, in upstate New York. The chips are then shipped as wafers to GloFo's facility in China, where the dies are bumped and packaged (mated with the pinned substrate and IHS). AMD is expected to launch the Ryzen line of high-performance desktop processors on the 28th February, 2017.

Considering when the actual silicon die is being made it should write "Made in USA, assembled in China"

AMD traditionally used diffused/made (eg: Diffused in Germany, Made in Malaysia). Here's an ES:

Yeah, I know :) Every now and then I give such a remark to test my mind control skills ... I'm fully expecting them to do it eventually, as a proof my skills indeed work :laugh:

I can't wait any more.
The whole hardware industry just waits with excitement for this platform.

Just a little bit more.

AMD is really doing a good job with ensuring these continuous leaks. The release date Feb. 28 is almost completely soldered into my brain by now.

Reviews of engineering samples have been floating around since november. There are also russian-language benchmark results comparing those to kaby lake-x, the new socket 2099 platform.

Intel is scared shitless of ryzen since they have nothing to counter it. next core plarform will be on 14+nm like kaby lake because of process problems and will use same core (no ipc gain). This does not change the fact that first die-shrink to 10nm will also use same architecture so beside lower power and potentially better OC (90% people does not care) there will be no ipc gain again. Off course, there will be small changes but nothing waranting a platform update.

Intel really fucked-up when choosing a non-engineer CEO, that guy killed all the research and now there is nothing new to market.

Que coisa mais linda de se ver!! Parece que o Gigante acordou, finalmente.
My target is R5 6/12 + B350, to replace FX-8320E + 990FX... with my RX470... But, here in Brazil, It will not be cheap... estimate around 1200/1500 BRL (400/450 USD).

That is not too back for a system overhaul. Just don't forget that you will need some DD4 RAM too so you are not waiting even longer to complete your upgrade.

Its already much much better than their current offerings. I think as long as it is in the ball park of the latest 2 gens of Intel, it will be all good....assuming these prices are real.

The question is, do you really need to though?
AMD can't tank a failed product launch like Samsung can, for instances....
So, in case it doesn't deliver, anything AMD-related will just troll itself out, credibility-wise :oops:
