Slight update on the Ryzen Event: reports confirm that Ryzen samples are finding their way to reviewers' hands, with the company's NDA being lifted on the 28th February - and the launch of AMD's flagship 1800X, 1700X and (my favorite so far) 1700 models on the same day. The remaining models in AMD's 17-strong Ryzen product-line are expected to follow a little later, on March 2nd.

Early leaked benchmarks have hailed the Ryzen launch as the second coming of a competitive CPU landscape for the first time in years, and as a turning point for AMD's position in the market. Fingers crossed, people: competition (alongside sufficient supply) is the holy grail for a consumer's wallet. Let's hope this is the much-needed spark towards reviving the CPU market and inciting future product development.

Yuck. They should be lifting the NDA 1-2 days prior to the launch, so people can see some actual performance numbers and reviews. I was looking at a launch day purchase, provided there were good reviews beforehand. Going to wait now. Not sure how stock numbers are going to look, might miss out on the first batch. I'll live. Maybe. :p

Can't wait for that 8core Ryzen for the price of the current 8core fx-8300. Watch me Intel fanboiz, I won't have to buy another CPU for at least a decade, hehe. AMD would never cuck its fanboys.

My main PC usage is rendering, so single-core performance isn't that important. And, since AMD has been using Blender as their prime example to show its performance, it is likely that Zen will hold some of its hype so far.

As long as it gets to reach 1,500 points in Cinebench, I will go for it. But I ain't naive enough to go for day-one purchase.

While i loved my 4.6ghz fx8350 i ended up buying a i5 6600k which beat the crap out of it. i felt so bad for leaving AMD but those processors where just terrible compared to intel.

Now i will be happy with a nice 1700x on an x370mb of course.

I think I will just toss the i5 6600k in the trash.(kidding I will give it to one of my gaming buddies)

If the single threaded performance is competitive with intel, I'd go head first for a Ryzen 3, which I assume should be able to, more or less, compete with i5 at a near i3 price.

Two cores is not enough and I don't need more than 4C/4T.

This might force intel to drop i5's prices.

Blender is great for Stability Testing for my rig lol

I already have a 5820K brute, but I just want to buy the R7 1800X for some reason lol. I like AMD CPU's. Just not the ones from Bulldozer era.
