    16-core, 32-thread versions of AMD Ryzen CPUs codenamed Threadripper will launch this summer, the company revealed at its Financial Analyst Day yesterday.



    With one of the gnarliest CPU codenames we've ever seen, the Threadripper multicore monsters will go head to head with Intel's Broadwell-E and upcoming Skylake-E High-End Desktop (HEDT) CPUs alongside a new motherboard platform that promises expanded memory support and I/O bandwidth. That's likely to take the form of quad-channel RAM and more PCIe lanes, similar to Intel's X99 platform, but AMD is saving further details for its press conference at Computex at the end of May.
    ROUND TWO! FIGHT!

    I don't really pay attention to stock prices or good sources for it, how was their development up towards the ryzen launch, was it overpriced by optimistic investors expecting a nutty ryzen success or was it just plain old punished?

    I hope they do better on this round, Intels "combo" of letting both the high speed few cores and "low" speed high core count on the same platform seems like a counterattack to deal with AMDs progress in heavy multithreaded workloads when accounting for price/performance. Will be interesting to see what they have in store for Threadripper, "leaks" suggests the high end Vega (not the gamer edition) might be toe to toe'ing the current Titan xp.

    It was overpriced and got fucking crushed when AMD published their quarterly results.

    You'd think people would learn, when I studied economics before I hit the tech train I never quite managed to internalize the concept of the "rational" market, still haven't.

    I think AMD is fine but people are idiots and get swept up. I will admit they were a GREAT value buy at this time last year but afterwards it became a hype train.

    Whenever I see people jumping on the hype trains late in the sequence thinking it'll just keep going I think about the old game Bubble Bubble on the NES, my head is weird.
    But, we'll see what Naples/Threadripper brings in actual power, maybe it'll climb a little again if they make a strong showing against Intel. June will be interesting for the CPU/GPU market.

    AMD stock was up 11.6% yesterday after an Intel licensing deal: https://www.thestreet.com/story/1413...agreement.html

    I know, I was putting that out there because you were saying they were down 10% from open today.

    Yeah, it's trading at the same level it was on the 15th, pre-announcement.

    When AMD stock was just under $2 it was absolutely the right time to buy in because Ryzen was going to give it a boost (which it did). The time to sell was right after Ryzen was released but so many homers in /r/amd were all IT'S GOING TO $100 GUYZ. I personally thought it would've went over $20, but not surprised where it tapered off.

    Okay, I'm going to change my tune for a bit and get a little optimistic about a thought I had.

    Ryzen laptops.

    So, hopefully, the power consumption and price point will be low enough to justify one. I remember my core 2 duo alienware m11x that went on black friday sale when the i5's and i7's came out and they were power HOGS, but the c2d would last all freaking day at school and still be able to play battlefield and some other games - albeit it was an 11inch so the battery lasted long but the c2d was like 3 times at long as the other models.

    Now I know intels have improved and so will the next iteration, but if the ryzens offer a lower pricepoint with decent power consumption (which has not really been a strong point in some past cases) then I might be looking at one to replace my 15inch msi. I really do with I could get a new 11inch or 13inch laptop though - they are just perfect for combination use and portability. Oh, need a bigger screen? HDMI out. Man they were perfect which is shocking considering they were alienware.

    Here's hoping.

    Yeah, I def can't wait to start seeing some Ryzen laptops.

    4000+ pins I think. Someone said even the motherboard was probably going to run around $700.
