    First Benchmarks, CPU-Z Screenshots of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 32-core CPU Surface

    I am still certain INTEL will continue to increase more counts while maintaing their IPC lead over AMD's CPU architecture. But ZEN has certainly opened up Pandora's box. 32 Physicals cores incoming to a consumer market at reasonable cost is nothing less then astonishing.

    Intel: "If [AMD] Wanted an Intel Core i7-8086K CPU, [They] Could Have Just Asked Us"

    That is not a realistic expectations when 8086k is available to masses. Good luck with your pipe dream if u think your 8086K will be worth twice the cost. You only have to glare at Pentium G3258 and you will be long gone before it is considered a vintage.

    This should've been reported during Beta. I would love for nVidia to refresh/redesign UI for Control Panel. Hoping to see something new with Version 400 drivers for VOLTA based GPU's soon.

    2700X vs 7700K, should I stay or should I go?

While Asrock offers same features for lot less. For example ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero ( Least expensive board in...

    Asus has overall the UEFI BIOS out there in the segment. ASKROCK simply offers lot more for your money with excellent overclocking capabilities in the industry. Have not purchase Gigabyte / MSI in a decade.
