    I'm curious to see how well the zen architecture scales, but I'm definitely not in the target market for this chip. My interest caps out around 8-16 core, after which the frequency trade-off doesn't make as much sense for what I'm doing.

    If you have to spend money on the chip, I'd save your money and wait for Vega, or possibly the ThreadRipper launch instead.

    Michael, yes yes yes please please please for some EPYC benchmarks! I have 500+ Opteron 6300 cores at work, and 24 Opteron 4300 cores at home. All running Linux. Would love to see how the new stuff compares.

    You'll end up getting one of these and complain about how bad gaming performance is

    Best I've seen is 5.3GHz or so on LN2; on water cooling about 1GHz less.

    With regard to compiling on Ryzen, people on the Gentoo forums have been complaining a bit about weird/random segfaults (that I also ran across a few times while building my own kernel), see here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-...start-150.html

    As with several of the new X299 mbs from Intel, it seems related to the number of PCI-e slots, if more than 5 then its 2 x 8 pin.

    Oh no. And even Threadrippers use different socket!

    Oh. And also: Hi. \o
