    Trust AMD to keep me hanging in limbo!

    They are making me want to build a new rig just so I can have Ryzen though. Just need an excuse as what to use it for. (I am interested in a deep learning rig, but then that was the excuse for the 1080!)

    So apparently i will hate to wait, because motherboards won't arrive in Slovakia on time, or at all. Local reviewer in Czech & Slovakia the CPU supply is three times the motherboard supply; my supplier just told me that a local distributor didn't get their shipment of ASUS AM4 boards at all.

    Just awesome :wallbash:. There go my plans for the weekend.

    Looks like the results are in: XFR is present on all chips, but better on the X-suffix models. That's not what I said, so a loser is me. Bah!

    ECC support (yay!) is amazing. I'll certainly be picking up at least one of these chips as a result - provided a good mobo or two supports ECC anyway.

    While it might not be best for gaming, it's still no slouch, so great for an all-round system with bias toward compute.

    What saddens me a bit is that it looks like IOMMU (AMD-Vi) support for start is a bit shaky. IOMMU isolations seems to be only down to 2 groups - the two PCI-E slots from the CPU are one group, and EVERYTHING else (SATA, ethernet, PCI-E x1/x4 slots, M.2) are second group. Which is a bummer. Let's hope it will get better.
