i thought there was rumors of insane IPC increases with Zen3 upwards of the better part of 15% or more!
I've been in this hobby long enough to know to always take rumors with a truckload of salt.
Remember Bulldozer? It was supposed to be amazing!
We will see about the massive IPC increases. If true, I can't help but wonder if they will be accompanied by clock speed decreases. It's usually pretty difficult to increase both IPC and clock speed at the same time.
We'll see though.
The thing is, even if the next gen Ryzen is 15% faster, that doesn't mean that the chip you buy today is going to be any slower.
