Ryzen 3000 Series Discussion
Are we going to see a significance performance increase without a significant price increase?

There is literally no chance that AMD won't announce anything in Computex. They announced something everytime in the last two years.
Maybe 5Ghz at 1 core boost. I really doubt it though. I don't see it going much further than 4.8 personally. We will see.If rumors are true then I want a 12C/24T @ 5ghz.
This part seems like a bit wishful thinking though. Even a 2700x would be more expensive. You really think AMD will release a vastly superior chip at less price? I don't see it happening. If something hit 12 core at *anywhere* near 5 Ghz, it will be at least $500. Especially since Intel has no answer to that Sku right now. Both in single thread performance and core counts.

I agree, but why RAID NVMe... and what kind? Seems a little excessive with alternative backup solutions today.toalan wrote: ↑ I think Ryzen 3000 will sell like hotcakes. It is the perfect storm, RAM prices are dirt cheap, NVME drives are dirt cheap.
Ryzen 3700 @ ~ $400 CAD
X570 mobo @ ~$175 CAD
32GB of RAM @ ~$180 CAD
Dual 512GB NVME in RAID @ ~$160 CAD
Some badass air cooler @ ~$50 CAD
Just under a grand for a beastly machine to run Virtual machines on. Gonna throw on my GTX 1060 in there and do some gaming too. If it is practical to do then I would also like to run a FreeNAS VM on it too.

Might as well go for the PCIE4.0 NVMe that will be released over this weekend too.
You re right, this is entirely dependent on how aggressive AMD push their stock clock. Their Precision Boost often time boost higher than a normal overclock can manage, even still, it is fairly close to stock. You rarely has more than 200 mhz headroom.feminazi wrote: ↑ I asked red about this but what do you guys think (speculatively of course) about getting a 3600 and a proper cooler vs. a 3600x? Clearly we don't know how the 3000 chips will overclock but I suspect they will overclock just fine given that they are shrinking the die (while boosting the stock clocks though but how aggressively?!).
Sadly it is just not going to happen. HBM cost far too much and APU sku doesn't sell high price enough to justifies the investment. Most people who need the performance would rather just get a GPU.

Hades Canyon is way too expensive. What a shame.Cucumference wrote: ↑ Sadly it is just not going to happen. HBM cost far too much and APU sku doesn't sell high price enough to justifies the investment. Most people who need the performance would rather just get a GPU.
Intel sorta tried it (with AMD even). The performance wasn't all that high. It had a niche in some ultra portable laptop but it didn't really get wide spread adoption.
