First it was ZEN will be a Cat core (small) because AMD doesnt have the $ for R&DI am waiting for AMD to demo Turbo Boost at CES 2017 to really rub it in to the people who were making authoritative statements about Zen being a low frequency design.
Then it was ZEN IPC will be close to SandyBridge because AMD bla bla bla
Then it was ZEN will have low clocks because of High IPC and shitty GloFo 14nm LPP
Im not saying 5GHz will be true or not but even IF 8C 16T RYZEN can OC to 4.5GHz with BDW IPC, then it will be the best come back of AMD in the last 20 years because of their current worst financial state they are in .
