I think it would have been better if it was shorted based on dates.

For example

2018 Q1_______
AMD: blah blah blah
Intel: blah blah blah

2018 Q2_______
empty - nothing expected for that period

2018 Q3_______
Nvidia: blah blah blah
AMD: blah blah blah

etc.

Im itching to migrate to a newer platform. With each passing day, week and month my X79 pro gets closer to that big PC graveyard in the sky. It's not quite on life support just yet but it has the rumblings of a beast coming to the end of its life

any rumors on Ryzen+ for laptops?
Impossible to see a Ryzen+ APU, cause there are and will be no product with Ryzen+ name.
And there is currently no rumor of Zen+ based APU.

Wow, the 2700X going to 4.35GHz stock? That's pretty crazy. I wasn't expecting them to go from 3.9 to 4.35, that's a pretty big bump. This pretty much puts them on the same level as Intel clock wise. Wondering what the 2800X is going to have for a stock clock, 4.5GHz?

Renamed Zen 2+ to Zen 3 to properly align with what AMD has communicated at CES
Clarified that on AMD 400 Series chipsets the CPU will indeed provide PCIe Gen 3 lanes

Wonder why we can't just skip PCIe 4.0, and go straight to 5.0. Their releases seem to be very close together. Too close.

PCIe 5.0 will be released in 2019, but it will take a while for it to reach consumer products. In general, it has taken from 1 to 3 years for a major revision of the PCIe standard to be widely adopted in graphic cards, and around a year for a minor revision, for example. Also, early adopters tax: the first products with PCIe 5.0 will probably be targeted at enterprise markets and be relatively expensive, as they have a more pressing need of faster devices and the money to pay for them. After that, it will trickle down to the rest of the world.

Also, consider that not many devices will use the full bandwidth of PCIe 4.0 x16, unless under certain scenarios, so for consumers there would be little need of faster PCIe lanes in most cases.

Added specific Zen+ release date and added more info on Ryzen 2600X, added first vendor names for new Coffee Lake motherboards, Intel confirmed fixes against Spectre/Meltdown for new Coffee Lake CPUs, More details on CFL Celeron/Pentium CPUs, Turing release date, AMD Dali APU

Also added an expandable link which has a list of updates, so it's easier to keep track of what's new

Hello, this is my first comment here.
Just a clarification: this article says "PCI-Express 4.0/ specification released in late 2018", but the source (from octobre 2017) says "The Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) special interest group (SIG) published the first official specification (version 1.0) of PCI-Express gen 4.0 bus ".

Maybe that "late 2018" is really 2017 and we can expect some retail implementation in late 2018-early 2019?
