    Not sure if you're trying to be sarcastic or not but both the wiki article and the toms article use the term module to refer to a dimm. Tom's actually uses both terms -- It's not like that's new terminology either...

    My first thought was that this sounds like the Bulldozer hype but after thinking about it for a second it sounds more like the comments leading up to Zen 2 which were fairly accurate. It would be great if these turn out nice and I could drop one of these in my x470 board but I half expect them to require a new socket with the 2020 timeline they've stated before.

    Branding often changes less frequently than architectures, AMD used the Athlon branding from socket A until AM3+ and Intel used the Pentium branding from the 586 through Pentium IV.

    So sounds like we won't be able to build a DDR5 box until mid 2021? Hopefully ECC will be more widely available for DDR5 motherboards with Ryzen than DDR4!

    Yeah it'll be AM4+, something like with the last 5 sockets, where an AM4 chip can drop right in

    So many comments in here about the announcement being a lie but then I realized that many have been conditioned by Intel over the past how many year?

    I thought the writing was on the wall for Intel when they started selling the K versions that couldn't be OCed without giving it a delid and in the process voiding the warranty :barefoot:
