Still rocking my 965 BE, So I will be very happy if AMD can pick up the CPU game again!!
 
AMD essentially has no Chipset for the CPUs. It's an SOC of sorts so everything is just about contained within the CPU or at least the CPU package. That does simplify the board in some ways, but the worst part is that it takes away the small differences boards had between them. Right now there's literally no difference at all between any board (all of which are far too early to be relevant). Essentially all control is in AMD's hands and in the user hands for overdrive.

You can still access traditional BIOS for SATA config, Audio, boot sequence etc but that's it really. Even DRAM frequency you'll have to set inside the OS and reboot as I don't think you can change multi once the mem training is done. We will have to see.

Again there are still way too many bugs to iron out, but the performance is there so they must work to iron out the rest of it. There's too much of a spread right now between CPUs as I said
4.1GHz vs 5.2GHz on some. But progress is being made rapidly so we will see. Overclocking is only on the OC SKUs, but as we have seen from AMD, that's almost all of them.

Sorry, I am fairly newish to Carb so this may sound ignorant but how do you know so much about it? Do you work for AMD? Again, asked by said noob

Also, I want to make sure it didn't come off wrong. I am not questioning your credibility I am simply asking how you know.

There's literally no argument to be made for Core i3, Core i5 and locked Core i7 on the small platform or rather the Dual Channel platforms. Zen is 5960X performance for $300 USD
 
This is why we can't have nice things.
Was supposed to stay here cause now I'll have too much explaining to do. sigh... er will need mod
