Re: My New AMD Rzyen 1800X System

It's always gratifying to have people use something you helped build and find it useful.
I'm glad you like the Ryzen system. It's why I became an engineer! :D

Please keep us posted on your progress.

Naples is a Zen based system. We definitely have CPU parts beyond that planned.

Re: AMD's Ryzen launches March 2, outperforming Intel's Core

Hi Art, Unfortunately, those are the things I can't tell you. :( Schedules and specs are crazy sensitive. Official AMD press releases say the next generation will be out in the 1st quarter of 2018 and my team and me are working hard to ensure that. There are a lot of exciting things coming from AMD ...

Re: AMD's Ryzen launches March 2, outperforming Intel's Core

I would love to but I just don't have time. I run a team of about 20 electrical engineers and we're heavily in the design phase of the successor to Ryzen.

Re: AMD's Ryzen launches March 2, outperforming Intel's Core

If I wax enthusiastically and make grand claims then I'm going to be accused of being an AMD shill.
There should be tons of benchmarks tomorrow, so let's just wait and see. Regardless, this is the best
processor AMD has ever put out, IMHO.

Re: AMD's Ryzen launches March 2, outperforming Intel's Core

Hi Graham,

Yeah, it's what I've been up to the last few years. Long hours and lots of spice simulations. I'm glad to see the forum is still going strong, although I was sad to read of the passing of a few of the members.

Re: AMD's Ryzen launches March 2, outperforming Intel's Core

I hope you're right Steve. This Thursday should be interesting. Everyone I know is very excited, but of course the proof is in the pudding. Or in this case the benchmarks, which come out from under their NDAs this Thursday. regards, --tom Disclaimer: I'm an AMD employee and part of the Ryzen design ...
