    Re: AMD and Intel's New Lineups - An Easy Breakdown of What You Need to Know

    I'm still skeptical about that rumored naming convention for Ryzen 9, it's so convoluted. Those are all some pretty crazy chips for the consumer market, but I find it funny how people gasp at the news of 16 core processors.

    I think most people don't realize how many 8+ core processors have been available in the server market the last few years.

    AMD released Opteron processors with 12 cores in 2010, and 16 cores in 2012. They were based on Piledriver though, so I assume they weren't very good.

    Intel released Xeon processors with 12 cores in 2013, 16 cores in 2014, and last year a range of Xeons with up to 24 cores, so they have dominated the server market, even though they cost up $3k - $8k a chip.

    Because these aren't server based products.
    These are high end enthusiast products (Think 6950X level ect).

    lol, I know that, it should be clear from my post. I'm just mentioning them for interest sake.

    Then why are you skeptical and why mention server grade products?
    I'm glad AMD are finally kicking it up a gear and taking a slice of intel's pie. As someone that used x58, x79 and x99, I'm always interested to see what the future holds for the HEDT market.
    That said, I'm fairly certain I'm going to skip X299 and X1998 or whatever it's called. I'm happy with my 1800X, it's been performing perfectly.

    I'm only skeptical about the NAMING of the Ryzen chips. AMD has officially announced Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, but the exact lineup and naming is still only rumors.

    I'm also very happy with my 1600X I have found unforeseen advantages for the extra threads over a i5
