AMD are rumoured to be creating a consumer-oriented 16-core Ryzen CPU

AMD are rumoured to be creating a consumer-oriented 16-core Ryzen CPU, coming on a larger LGA socket and support for quad-channel memory.



Read more on AMD's potential X99 competitor.

Doubt this will happen. Especially a "revised" Zen core? Yeah BS on that

NBD: agreed! Also, didn't AMD already confirm that the AM4 platform would last for a few years, with no new sockets? I know I read that somewhere, but not sure it was the "official" word.

The 10 core 6950X is a better overclocker than any of the Ryzen CPUs, AMD need to address this first before even thinking about a 16 core consumer CPU.

What would a 16 core Ryzen CPU run at, 2.5ghz?

This seems highly unlikely and a bit incredible. The leaked dialogue is written convincingly, but calling it X399 and it having none of the issues of current Ryzen seems a little hard to believe, especially that it's going to be unveiled at Computex.

The only thing that will come out from AMD and will be on LGA will be their server CPU.

This doesn t make any sense at all. Ryzen R7 is already competing handily with HEDT, as will the ZEN2 versions next year.

You are right yes. No new sockets. They could update the chipset and keep same socket but Ryzen is at minimum a 4year commitment they said. Or 5 years? Can't remember which it was

People are complaining about a lack of quad channel memory though. I don't see it being a problem considering Ryzen is AMD's proclamation to consumers that HEDT systems don't have to cost €1500 for just CPU, motherboard, and RAM.

There's no benefit using Quad Channel anyway. You're bandwidth doesn't go up, it does in the theoretical sense because you have two more sticks, but the real world impact is virtually 0. You just get more capacity potential really is just it.
I would probably rather have dual channel, less strain on the CPU which means higher speeds, which would give an actual boost to performance.
