Is it really worth waiting a year for?

It's not even going to beat intel's last gen.

You know they have not finished developing it yet, they can still improve the chip during that time.
But you are true about not going to beat intel last gen if the 40% performance boost stay like that.

Worth is an entirely subjective thing. If you had an existed intel i7E and needed more performance then you obviously wouldn't have any interest in Summit Ridge whatsoever.

The Zen core arch is entirely finished. AMD will be starting runs of engineering samples any time now if they haven't already.
>>
>>51515395
They already have engineering samples out right now, hence
>>51515322
It's not going to be a year, it's going to be closer to 6 months, and if they can deliver that 40% while matching or exceeding skylake efficiency, then it'll very much be worthwhile especially if they match intels prices just with more cores.

You are now imagining a 6700K for $20 less with 6 cores

>$20 less

wow it's nothing

It doesn't need to beat Intel's last gen.

It needs to give us a quad-core chip with SMT and a respectable serial performance/IPC at a respectable price.
>>
>>51515322
I think you've answered your own question
>>
>>51515322
given that intel is actually going to start selling workstation CPUs with >4 cores next year (and not just rebranded Xeons i9s or whatever), Zen looks credible within the industry at least.

If I can get a 6 or 8 core 3+ GHz CPU with ECC support at a reasonable price, I'll be ecstatic, regardless of who sells it to me.

Bulldozer didn't just fuck AMD, it fucked every consumer in the last 4+ years.

keller came, did magic then left. Thats how he rolls.

>It's not even going to beat intel's last gen.
Yeah it is. Maybe not in terms of flat out performance, but it will destroy intel in terms of price.
>>
I hope to build an all AMD Rig next year if Zen & the next gen of Radeom GPU's are good.

Im sick of intel and nvidia's bullshit.
>>
Maybe I will finally replace my ancient Q6600 rig. I really hope there are AMD socket mITX boards this time around.
>>
>>51516078
This. I'm building my friend an all AMD pc for christmas just to spite the bastards. I haven't upgraded my rig since I got my 2500k. well thats not true I got a gtx970. I'm part of the problem, but I just cant deal with the shitty drivers meme.
