Where are the Benchmarks?

As stated, today AMD is only lifting the lid on what the stuff looks like, as well as speeds and details. This weekend however, AMD France accidentally released some information on the Cinebench R15 speed of the 32-core, giving it a score of 5099 :

Rendering: CineBench 15 MultiThreaded

My CPU-focused review, using our newest benchmark suite, will be posted on August 13th. I am still iterating our gaming test suite for CPUs with new games and drivers, so that review will be a little later. I am also in the middle of a 30,000 mile set of travels (FMS, Hot Chips, IFA, vacation), along with some Cannon Lake tests to run, and whatever else might launch soon, so please be a little patient. August has never been so busy, honestly.

Where to Pre-Order

If you really want to go ahead and order before looking at the reviews, then we will add some links in here as we get them. Note that retailers will only be taking pre-orders for the 2990WX today, while the 2950X launches at the end of this month, and then the final two chips in October.

    AMD already created a gaming mode on the top model of previous Threadripper, which disabled cores. If that doesn't tell people these aren't supposed to be gaming chips what will?

    These are workstation chips. They're for doing work. They will game okay but that is not their purpose at all, especially the more you move up the stack.

    I wish that those DDR4 prices would come down though.
    64GB is the minimum of my Linux KVM DDR4 requirement.

    there is very little reason to buy intel HCC processors anymore. Reply

    Please, let AMD do well! I'll buy something from them, (my first PC was AMD) just to keep some competition alive. Death to Intel monopolistic practices, and the governments that let them get away with it! Reply
