AMD

Today marks the initial start of AMD's pre-sale of 2nd Generation Ryzen processors. The full launch is set for April 19th, which is when reviews and performance numbers will be officially available, but today we are able to tell you a bit about the processors that are coming, as well as some pictures, and link readers to where they can pre-order. We're not overly fond of manufacturers offering pre-orders before revealing performance numbers, as with the Threadripper launch last year, however we can at least discuss the details of each part.

Good to see AMD continue improving Ryzen.

I've got 64 GB on my 5960x system.

I use it for virtual machines sometimes. Also good for playing Star Citizen, which is in Alpha and has memory bugs sometimes. It used 28 GB a couple of weeks ago but my game kept running.

And for the rest: Disk Cache. Windows has 30 GB of files cached at the moment.

My Ryzen 1700X has 32 GB of 2400 MHz ECC RAM on it. It runs a Linux NAS and my personal email and torrents. It generally has 5 GB in slab (btrfs inodes, dentries and extent buffers) and 22 GB in cache.

Cache is pretty important.
