So, looks like there’s final confirmation on Ryzen release dates and prices. The high end Ryzen 7 is launching March 2nd, $329-$499.
Now, I know that it’s extremely dangerous to get caught in any AMD hype. But I’m going to be in the market for a 6 or 8 core machine before summer, and cautiously optimistic that it might be time for my first AMD CPU in over a decade. The only remaining question marks for me are whether they really hit at least Haswell level IPC, and that the virtualization story checks out.
Anyone else planning to jump onto the 8 core train?
