Definitely. I was expecting SB levels at best, those demos have it up with Intel's latest.She said in those demos boost was disabled. It was locked at 3.4ghz. I guess you mean its 3.4 vs 3.2? makes sense then. But looks like they are over delivering on IPC like lisa said.
Yeah, damn shame DOTA will not be able to be lived streamed till the launch of Ryzen......I don't play DOTA and don't stream games - so can someone explain to me why a 6700K overclocked to 4.5GHz can't simultaneously play DOTA and stream it without dropping frames (badly) on the stream?
lol, if it matches 8 cores with 8 cores, it definitely matches single core. But clock speeds is where its at, I think they over delivered on that a bit. Since everyone expected it to be 3.2 base and 3.5 boost. Looks like AMD had everyone fooled on that. So 3.4 base it matches 6900k it looks like not only in blender but in handbrake as well. So I guess we still need to wait for benches, but Lisa did look a little cocky and over confident, I mean that in a good way. Looks like Zen is over delivering unlike polaris lol.I'm damn impressed depending on price and single core performance
Err, okI don't play DOTA and don't stream games - so can someone explain to me why a 6700K overclocked to 4.5GHz can't simultaneously play DOTA and stream it without dropping frames (badly) on the stream?
NDA has not lifted on parts and AMD has sampled none yet to any tech journalists to my knowledge.I'm impressed. Now that the NDA is lifted. Let's see what boosted actual market ready chips are capable of. Thus far I'm sold on replacing my venerable 3930k with Ryzen apparently a play with risen, as in AMD has finally risen.
The 490 looks impressive but I want to see some [H] benches on it.
