    So basically all those statistical anomalies that reviewers identified are just in their imagination, good one AMD. :rolleyes:

    That not what they said at all? AMD commented the scheduler is working as intended (as linus and pcper have demonstrated) . What both of those have said though , is the cahce reporting is `weird` and a driver is needed to fix that

    That not what they said at all, IIRC linus and pcper said it's working as intended but probably isn't working optimally for the unique architecture of Ryzen.

    Besides that's just one of the many statistical anomalies that reviewers have highlighted.

    They had the Ram at 2400 (most likely due to the issues from immature bios versions plaguing Ryzen), the gap should be far smaller if they would have used 3000+ due to the speed of the connection between the two CPU modules being derived from memory clock speed.

    And if you listened to the video when i posted it in the Ryzen benchmark thread you'd know earlier (18:45) they said (paraphrasing) that while the Windows scheduler is working as expected that doesn't mean it's working optimally for Ryzen.

    Yep, not broken doesn't mean it is as good as it could be.

    If you admit to an issue you don’t have a solution to yet, you’ll put people off buying, as it stands, it’s actually pretty good and will be a good purchase, you don’t won’t people holding back waiting for a bug fix.

    The kind of people buying Ryzen probably have a clue what's going on enough to read these sort of forums ect

    But if it isn't Windows 10's fault, who's going to get the blame now? :p

    Reading AMD's statement just conjures this in my mind:

    Greetings!

    You should also read the other blog post. Bunch of suggestions, this one is the more interesting one:
    Are you seeing reviewers re-download games for each system they test?
