Rather steep gap between the non-X and X variants again, wonder if their binning makes the X worth it this time. At least they all come with stock coolers now.

I'm guessing they'll work with AMD for semi-custom designs, like the Xbos/PS4. Those timelines line up well with planned 7nm Threadripper

So... They're charging double the money for the same specs as the Xiaomi, but with a few mm thinner bezels?

Really liking the 'front' design. Very classy. Reminiscent of XFX's 290x, but still nowhere close. It's a shame XFX decided to make cheap, red, plastic toy shrouds with the recent generations...

So you mentioned that it's almost identical to the B350, but don't say how they're different? at all?

So why include the 2 extra dies in TR socket design at all? Why not reduce the cpu package size by ~30-40% in the first place?

EDIT: NVM realised it was a stupid question, didn't know TR and EPYC...

Those 2 anorexic sticks do NOT inspire confidence to the sturdiness, table's probably gonna wobble with every keystroke.

Wow, that's a very healthy upgrade over the 460.

About the photo, though, is AMD really producing that card with that cooler? Or is it just a promo image, and it's AIB-only?

I'm more of a sucker for soft curves and rounded edges, like the Corsair 570x. This case is better in every other regard, though. 2 vertical GPU mounts, Lian Li's design team just jumped from 1990 to...

But the B350 boards tend to have worse component and aesthetics compared to the X370 boards. I'd rather get a B350 chipset made with the same respect they give to X370 boards for less by skipping the...

I really hate that board manufacturers are still only pooling high quality components and aesthetics on x370 boards, and treating B350 as an inferior chipset. Why keep paying the nVidia tax?

It looks bad on AMD if they simply replace their existing tiers with higher priced refreshes. A lot of their sheer price competitiveness would be lost.

That was the 290x (https://techreport.com/r.x/290x-custom/xfx-card-front.jpg). IMO it was the pinnacle of GPU designs, a complete pity that XFX has gone the route of pandering to edgy 12 year olds...
