I wanted to have a look at the boards early but I can't say I was planning on buying one. Maybe to play around with if they were cheap but probably not even then.
AMD isn't giving up on workstations and servers. If they were, then they would have inaugurated Zen with a low-power APU instead of Summit Ridge. The fundamental problem is that Carrizo/Bristol Ridge is based on an outdated architecture, and has numerous optimizations specifically for low power usage, which make it a poor choice for a desktop part.Given this news, I wouldn't be surprised if AMD goes all in on mobile computing and exits the enthusiast/consumer desktop altogether.
I had wondered why they had just announced the A10-7890K Godaveri with Wraith cooler as well as the AMD Athlon 880K and AMD Athlon 845 Excavator 65W only a couple of months ago.Oh good, I still have an account on this forum... I am as disappointed as everyone else that the speculation of both a March and June launch for AM4+BR has fallen through. My personal predicament is that I planned to have a nice cool 65W excavator APU by the time the summer heat arrived.
I dont remember anyone claiming 2015 launch for ZEN or even early 2016. Where did you see that ??My point is they keep giving us a line of bull. First it was Zen would be out end of 2015, then first quarter 2016, then 2nd quarter 2016 and now at the end of the year 2016. No duh there bleeding money left and right,they dont have anything left worthwhile to sell.
Its a long while between now and the end of the year.
Interesting. A leak a while back showed Bristol Ridge AM4 (FM3 at the time) coming in July 2016. We may see Bristol Ridge for desktop next month.According to Heise (c't mag publisher), AM4 boards go to priority OEMs first (and do so for a while now):
Perhaps, but remember they fairly recently refreshed Kaveri with new boxed versions complete with a new cooler. Perhaps they don't want to obsolete that part so soon, especially if it's seeing good traction in the marketplace?If they targeted July 2016 launch, they would surly have something to show at computex...
I mean they did promise wide support for upcoming APU's on AM4 , maby it just not ready for the consumer market who are expecting upgrade paths ?If they targeted July 2016 launch, they would surly have something to show at computex...
Heise mentions the HP Pavilion 510 with a A10-9700 and some forum leak of a A12-9800 system.Interesting. A leak a while back showed Bristol Ridge AM4 (FM3 at the time) coming in July 2016. We may see Bristol Ridge for desktop next month.
OEM's with Zen SAMPLES for Board/System verification.... You can't verify Zen based designs with a Bristol Ridge chip...AMD already supplies wholesale the AM4 variant of Bristol Ridge CPUs. PC hobbyist, however, wait until end of the year until they can buy the processors and suitable motherboards.
If this is true, AMD want to release Bristol Ridge along side Zen? Where's the benefit in that if they're already prepared to provide OEMs right now?
