Benchmarks surface for an AMD Ryzen 12-core CPU, coming in what look like an Alienware system.

Hmm. As of right now the Area 51 R3 (on the new chassis) doesn't even exist. The last was the 7500 and that was years and years ago.

Not sure what to be more excited about. The fact there seems to be a 12 core Ryzen, or that Dell is going to use AMD for the first time in forever.

Hmm. That bench runs version 22.35. However, the latest is 24.11 apparently.

Yup, thought so.



Easily swatted aside even the 4960x. I can't post a link to the score in detail because it includes personal info about me. I am ranked 6100 and something, the 12 core AMD apparently sits at 897. That's pretty bloody good.

I am saying I don't believe the HEDT rumors

I'm really not sure tbh man. I can't see why not though, if the rumours about the socket needing to be larger are true.

There were certain types of Opteron (the 16 core monsters) that were quite large. They were like a big old rectangle. Socket F? something like that.

What we do know is AMD have 32 core 64T chips either ready or possible. What I mean is, they've said that they are going to do a 32c 64t chip. If that's true (and I have absolutely no reason to doubt it) why would you limit yourself to just servers?

Intel do have some odd old Xeons out there, but these days unless they are massively threaded they usually release them on X99. And before that they released them on X79, meaning HEDT could theoretically use any one of them providing your board provider could be bothered to add support for them.

I personally don't think socket AM4 is going to be big enough to support anything more than it does now (IE 8c 16t).

As an example, 16 core Opteron.



And the board/socket.



Now obviously they have seriously shrunk things since then, but I just can't see them cramming the 32c CPU into a package as small as AM4. So that means they are going to need a bigger socket for those sorts of rigs, which means they would be daft to just make it a business thing and not market it toward people looking to build either a workstation, or a benchmark poser rig.

Intel must be selling the 6950x or they would not have bothered.

Right now AMD have Intel nailed to the post for desktop CPUs. Well, they will once they release Ryzen 5. The biggest question I have is what are they going to do about the 6950x and Intel's 100% dominance in the server/workstation market?

You'll take AMD's original statement of only one socket to the grave!

They have never mentioned or hinted at any time in the past few years of them going beyond AM4. They said multiple times one socket and it will last 4 years. Changing to HEDT and socket is going against that. These rumors are for server grade stuff I bet. With the hype train so high on Zen, I can see why it's turned into this...

I don't think changing to a larger socket for professional/business use is going against that tbh. Sure, it would leave the desktop using "only" 8 cores and 16 threads but Intel's desktop boards only support 4/8.

In some shape or form AMD need to compete with X99. They probably will, too, by offering more for less. Whether you will ever need it in a desktop? that is the question. I doubt it, but as I said you know what some people are like.
