This kind of reminds me when the x58 chips were released. It didn't take Intel long to make step improvements and then release new models using them like with the 920 to 930 which performed way better in the OC department without any voltage adjustments. I'm hoping that it won't take too long before Zen improvements arrive in the customers hands in a similar fashion which I would be inclined to take advantage of. I usually try to build a new machine every 3 years or when processing power makes a huge jump forward and a revised Ryzen would put me at the 3 year mark. While my 4790k is sufficient for what I do I want my next system to carry on with my tradition of incremental improvements which will also include replacing my GPU which is currently a gtx 780 ti that is right on the edge at 1440p..I find it interesting that there's no mention of Zen 2 for Pinnacle Ridge. I mean, stuff like that should show up on the roadmap, right?
Hm, is this a refresh like Kaveri -> Godavari and Carrizo -> Bristol Ridge? Higher clock speeds with little tweaks here and there resulting in a polished product?
