Nice, I hope that this is the turning point we have been wanting for AMD.

already some uk pre orders , swapping the $ for £ , which given exchange rate + vat is about right

£488 on OCUK for the 1800X £319 for the 1700.

lmao £319. The 6700k is £359 atm.

Yup no doubt, AMD going to lolage college.

Includes a cooler too.

Nice to finally see the 'launch', albeit not with independent reviews and benchmarks.

It's been good following the leaks and this does seem a truly good launch instead of a more bulldozer style launch. My hunch is that single core performance will 'disappoint' compared to the hype, but still be strong for its pricing.

I'm looking to do a new PC build fairly soon, although I was hoping to spend around ~£200 on a CPU so I'll be interested to hear information about Ryzen 3/5. Hopefully they won't lag too far behind.

Small selection of mainboards (Asus and Gigabyte only so far) are up as well:

Compelling prices. Intel CPU prices are utterly whacked to the point I've been turned away from even thinking about building with them, and the AMDs at this point are just not good enough, at all.

If they've gotten close enough IPC with double the fukken core count, and lower prices...everybody wins.

If you have been following the "leaked" benchmark results you would know this is a fast CPU. Especially when you try to catch it with a Intel 6 core.

TBH? if the "leaks" are true I have already seen a review. I've got all of the scores and figures I need. Plus I doubt AMD would claim 52% if it wasn't really 52% because they would get caught out immediately.

Basically? every single rumour and score and result would need to turn out to be BS for it to be BS.

And I can't see that happening. Every time there is a launch and we get rumours and leaks some of it at least always turns out to be correct.

Plus I'm with the many, I think these "leaks" are nothing of the sort and have all been sanctioned with AMD. For example, the slides we saw today for their presentation were "leaked" this morning (some guy with a camera) yet here they are this evening.

linus tech tips have a video of them benchmarking the demo machines - after checking all the settings (and complaining the intel machine has more ram) - yet amd wins out

Yes I do definitely agree, and I've been pumped about the 'leaks' - which as you say have been sanctioned by AMD.

What I say in terms of 'disappoint' is purely compared to the hype, since I think now some people are expecting all Ryzen 7 CPUs to beat all Intel CPUs, even at single core and gaming benchmarks (when in reality, Intel will win out in some cases). I'm talking more of parts of the reddit.com/r/amd hype.

But yes, I agree overall - I'm expecting Ryzen to be really successful and finally bring competitive back to the market. I'm excited for it.

scan have identical prices up now
RedFlames 22nd February 2017, 18:13 Quote
So the 1700 is duelling blows with the 7700K price wise [£320 and £330 respectively] and x370 boards seems to be around the same as a decent Z270 board [£150-ish].

For the SFF inclined you're gonna be disappointed right now as aside from a couple of B350 mATX boards, they're pretty much all ATX as suspected.
bawjaws 22nd February 2017, 18:26 Quote
Yeah, shame about the lack of mITX boards at launch. Means I'll be going with Intel again as I can't wait until Q3 for my new build.
Harlequin 22nd February 2017, 18:33 Quote
ITX needs ondie GPU , which Ryzen doesn't feature as yet , that and the AM4 APU`s are currently system builder only
RedFlames 22nd February 2017, 18:39 Quote
I'll wait to see what X299 offers [or doesn't], mainly as my need require *ALL THE RAM!* and then some.

Also gives Ryzen time to stabilise price/availability wise and any quirks that are likely to crop up will have been found and dealt with.

Typical. I would hazard a guess and say these are the gouge prices too. If the 1800x is less in £ than $ then why is the 1700 £329?

I reckon prices will drop. Especially when we get tray chips with no box or RGB heatsink etc. I mean those coolers are nice and all but no thanks.

The prices appear to be £10 less than the $pricing across the board($499/£489, $399/£389, $329/£319) Which tbh is far from gouge pricing and bang on the money once VAT is added after the conversion. Hopefully we see some cheaper OEM chips for us tinkerers though.

Those are some very attractive prices indeed... Very much looking forward to seeing some independent reviews and final UK pricing / motherboard pricing
Anfield 22nd February 2017, 19:13 Quote
Prices are nice, but not going to order until reviews confirm oc potential and AM4 boards bios maturity.

I don't even consider £=$ pricing all that unfair these days. The dollar is only worth 25% more the the pound and the US prices are before tax. Like you say, if they hold the UK prices are effectively about the same as the US prices, which is actually a pleasant surprise.

Scan have a good range of AM4 motherboards available: https://www.scan.co.uk/shops/amd/ryzen and more mATX ones than OCUK currently have.

They've been reduced since Scan put their prices up lol.

Yeah totally agree. I am hoping stock levels remain and thus the prices don't go northwards. I hope AMD have chimed in here to stop that happening, because it made a mockery of the Fury X. It wasn't as fast as the 980ti yet it cost more and then ended up £60 more than that just to compound its misery.

Oh and 13? totally agree. The coolers are RGB so I am hoping that shaves £20 off etc.

Promising.

Despite all the "sanctioned" leaks (most "big" tech leaks like this usually are sanctioned), and the numbers in this launch, I'm still waiting for independent benchmarks. I don't play many games these days and those I do play are rarely above 1080P, so aside from heat generation (and LOL @ AMD's record on heat!) at the moment I have little compelling reason to upgrade beyond my i5-4670K (this is a very toasty chip though...)

TBH Byron if the leaked Firestrike and Cinebench scores are real then for me they have already been reviewed. Those are the two tests I use to grade a CPU. So hopefully they are real scores and not just made up BS.

I think people are getting a little over excited yes, especially as AMD themselves have said Ryzen IPC is equivalent to the Intel Broadwell architecture.

This means in gaming usage, we may not see AMD winning as much as some people expect, leading to claims of over-hyping etc.

I don't think at these prices they are being overhyped. The entire tech community, apart perhaps from ardent green and blue fanboys, are glad that AMD are making an enthusiast CPU comeback.
