[quotemsg=19306069,0,299576]I really hope Ryzen lives up to the hype. I can't wait to see the R7 1800X vs. i7-6900K reviews.[/quotemsg]
They say R7 1800x will be around $600. I know it can beat up a 6 core i7
[quotemsg=19306616,0,120171]Has only two cores with hyperthreading, is expensive without a cooler, needs expensive mobo, and the upgrade path stops at 4 cores with hyperthreading.
AMD is bringing 4 cores to match it, with unlocked multipliers, all mobos overclock, lower prices, comes with cooler, and the same mobo can host an 8 core with hyperthreading CPU.
Awesome performance today, but I wouldn't make a single move until Ryzen comes.[/quotemsg]
Not all motherboards OC, but all CPU/APU's do.
You need B350, X370, or X300 chipset.
A300/A320 won't work OCing, looks like they just aren't making it possible atm.
Think of it like
B350 = 970
X370 = 990FX
X300 = sff 990FX
A series chipsets are kinda like office/htpc/just needs to run boards
