    Phoronix: AMD Ryzen 3 Rolls Out, Linux Benchmarks Coming

    AMD has completed their Ryzen desktop rollout today with the availability of Ryzen 3 CPUs on the low-end...

    Does AMD provide free motherboard/memory/heatsink for testing this time?

      They usually just send out the CPUs, at least that's what I end up getting.

        Not bad. A similar clocked quad core from intel is $200+. I know, I have one
        If you can find a decent mobo to go with it, these are no-brainers.

          How the CCX are arranged? It is a full CCX without SMT?

          They are 65W TDP, how much is the TDP for intel counterparts?

            I think I might go for a micro ATX Ryzen 3 build, just a small gaming machine.

              For the millionth time: it's still 2+2.

                TDP is not actual consumption, but what puzzles me is why a RyZen 8 core with 3.0 / 3.7 GHz comes down to 65 W TDP as well. I mean, when I have 8 cores at full speed they are supposed to produce some more heat than this quad-core with similar clock numbers. So either there is a lot of headroom on the RyZen3 now for TDP (but why not officially label it in the 45 W TDP category) or... something else is the matter.
                Real power consumption would be very interesting, esp. near-idle and full load.
                (PS: There's even less cache on the 3.)
                Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

                  Anandtech says they're 2 CCXes with 2 cores each.

                  Speculation: maybe some Ryzen 3 parts salvage silicon that's only stable when given extra power, so they raised the TDP for all of them.

                    It's a bit counterintuitive, but it works the other way around: a TDP is enforced and then cores can go wild as long as they stay within constraints. You can draw 65W by boosting one core to the max or by running all cores at the nominal speed.
                    Real power consumption is tested at techpowerup: it's worse than comparable intel quad cores clocked roughly the same. Both idle and under load.
