Until the motherboard ships...Odd that it was made in China, usually AMD chips are made in Taiwan.
Been wondering why you hadn't posted anything on your build.
Aye, got the RAM in last week, the 1800X today, motherboard (Amazon.com: ASUS Prime X370-Pro AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 ATX X370 Motherboard with AURA Sync RGB Lighting:… ) is still unknown shipping date, and I haven't received my bracket from Corsair yet, but I do have my old H60 I can use if the bracket doesn't come in first (the H60 uses the stock mounting system and is compatible).
One good thing about the delay I suppose, plenty of time to read up on the tweaks/workarounds/optimizations that others are finding.
At least the board should ship with BIOS 0502 which supports Ryzen, which could be the reason for the delay, the initial BIOS only supported Bristol Ridge.
I figured since I was waiting on my motherboard from Amazon and bracket from Corsair, I went ahead and bought Amazon.com: Samsung 960 EVO Series - 250GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E250BW): Computers & Accessories to be my OS drive. I wanted the 500GB model but after spending over $500 on the 1800X it just wasn't there in my budget. The question is can I get Windows 7 to install on it...Came across Installing Win7 x64 on Samsung 950 Pro NVMe - Windows 7 Help Forums which led to Recommended AHCI/RAID and NVMe Drivers and the bare drivers...Going to be SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (ugh)
Most processors from AMD that I got in touch are diffused in Germany and made in Malaysia, several are made in China. Very rare chips in current days are Made in Taiwan, especially for those based on Jaguar microarchitecture, they might use the TSMC foundry rather than GlobalFoundries. As to Diffused in USA, this is the very first time that I found for more a decade. It is really charming, but to me, a little bit sick (made in China, oh, no never, I dislike it!).
The physical package, I mean the box, is quite similar as the days when Athlon 64 was releasing, large and dark coloured. But the Athlon 64 introduced the new ISA and new platform changes, but Ryzen, besides performance, what does it really introduce? But the price, ..., OK, I never have the purpose to afford it, and frankly, I am tired of Made in China completely! If in the future, I have the plans to customise AMD Ryzen based servers, I would select processors made in somewhere else.
Can the ryzen even run overwatch?
its still made in taiwan it's just amd's getting pressured by chinese to change it because they get too triggered otherwise just like how if it said made in south dakota the east coast of the united states would get triggered
No, definitely, Made In China is Made In China, Made In Taiwan is Made In Taiwan actually! There is nothing made or manufactured in Taiwan, use word or phrase China instead! Please do not confuse or mislead others!
There is nothing made or manufactured in Taiwan?
sir you just contradicted yourself and by doing so you are misleading and confusing others
Sorry, you get me wrong, or in other words, you interpret my words wrong! I said "There is nothing made or manufactured in Taiwan, use word or phrase China instead!"
Things made in Taiwan would be labelled with "Made In Taiwan" only, there is no business with "Made In China“! But there lie some other situations, such as Taiwanese companies operate their factories in China mainland, such as annoy Foxconn Shenzhen. Things manufactured there would be labelled with "Made In China" rather than "Made In Taiwan". Taiwanese companies operate more and more factories in China mainland, such as ASUSTek, Gigabyte, ASRock and so on. Many products are manufactured in those factories too, they are labelled with "Designed in Taiwan, Made in China".
As to the AMD processors, nowadays, very few are made in Taiwan. But if in the last century, most AMD processors could be seen with label "Made In Taiwan"! As the "Diffused in USA", OK, I know years ago, many AMD processors were also diffused in Singapore, Assembly in Singapore or Malaysia. Later almost the entire AMD processors were diffused in Germany. Taiwan has their own semi factory, so there would be hope that AMD processors would be diffused in Taiwan too. I just wish you understand and read the whole sentence of others before making any other unfair judgement!
read the whole sentence of others before making any other unfair judgement
no i did read your whole sentence you didn't explain as that in the first place and its kind of hard not to view it as my comment because china is invading the Taiwanese people and trying to change everything about them as amd diffused and changed where things are manufactured so much it was a bit off for something that had such a short run compared to the other diffused places
Very nice, Hope everything arrives undamaged, as to the build Please do a Vanilla Build for the time being. Always nice to see a " Sleeper " and see just how a bone-stock build does measure up in " Real World User " applications.
P.S. Think you can do something with mine, heheheheh
From the TomsHardware review: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X: Overclocking & Test Setup
My H105 is basically of the same power as the H100i v2, and 82°C is a bit too high for my tastes, granted that's Prime95, and I haven't seen their rated thermal maximum. With a 4100mhz XFR frequency, that's only 9% slower than my 4.6ghz FX-8350, but with a 50% IPC improvement it still should be like night and day. I wonder if I'll have to turn the fans up from 900RPM...Anyway, who knows when that will be...
Saw the Asus Prime x370-Pro release notes March 2, immediatly recomended it to everyone. It has just about everything a person could ever need right about now.
I other words, <3 your choice. 5 way optimization, full official review found here from Asus
ASUS PRIME X370-Pro AM4 Motherboard overview - YouTube
Plus there's the fact that ASUS has Windows 7 support for the X370-Pro, whereas they don't for the Crosshair IV.
So, my 1800X (I keep wanting to say X1800, which was a really horrid video card) will be up and running as soon as Amazon gets my X370-Pro to me, Corsair gets my bracket to me, and Amazon gets my Samsung 960 Evo to me, so I went ahead and ran 4 benchmarks that I'm going to compare the two processors with. The first is Haven, it's still a synthetic, but I like it better than 3DMark in terms of judging performance, as 3DMark is more about performing badly no matter what you have, while Haven is more about performing more like an actual game would. The second is the built in CPU-z benchmark. The third is the Blender test using the same file AMD used in their demonstration (that's 2:38.69 render time, I forgot it kept looping and it was partway through when I took the shot). The last is a Samsung Magician benchmark on my games drive (non OS), and is being used to compare the SATA performance between the 990FX (and to an extent the 500, 600, 700, and 800 series chipset SATA performance because AMD hasn't had a truly new chipset since 2005 or so), mainly as far as IOPS performance goes, which as you can see is quite a bit lower than its rating.
I had PLANNED to run the Prime95 benchmark but that'd take ages and generate a result file pages long, so no. And of course, I will still be using Windows 7, but on a fresh install (UGH!) on my new 960 Evo NVMe drive.
I am so interested in the benchmark provided by the CPU-Z, it almost tells the true story about the actual performance of processors. I used it to benchmark Pentium E6300 (2.8GHz) and Athlon II 245(2.9GHz), it did really tell the story because the scores of the former is much higher the latter. Yeah, that exposes the actual performance of a processor. From http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Zen/AMD-Ryzen%207%201800X.html , one could find Ryzen 7 1800X is a 8 core processors (16 threads available). But I have no ideas why that CPU-Z just recognises only 8 threads and makes it grey. The score of single thread is 1337, but 8 (or 16) threads just perform such a lower score, I feel its performance it is not that idealised. Because 1337 x 8 = 10 696, if 16 threads enabled, the final score should be above on it, but the score of 7706 seems a little bit disappointed without seeing the improvements brought up by the newly introduced SMT feature. In other words, the whole performance of this processor does not seem so balanced. Or the mutual locks represent the bottlenecks exposing the weakness on this revolutionary microarchitecture. I could not documents on the AMD version of SMT, will it work similar as Intel Hyper Threading? I would fear about that, because HT is much more difficult to implement, so I might guess AMD possibly use another simpler technology to implement their SMT feature. In the abandoned Alpha/AMD Hammer Microarchitecture, Alpha implemented a very special SMT, like the integer core found on AMD Bulldozer microarchitecture, but two threads could be combined together to build up an even thicker thread. SMT is also very common for PowerPC processors, such as IBM PowerPC processors and SIT CELL processors. They are very simple, each scalar contain only one thread. There are no concepts found on Intel HT. When working as an AIX maintainer, I found the performance improved a little bit when enabled SMT.
SMT and Multi Core look similar, but have a very different and even opposite motivation. Multi-Core design is using more and more affordable computing cores to boost the applications to extends; while the SMT is designed to make full use of the current infrastructure provided by the microarchitecture, especially when only one thread exist, the resources are hard to fully utilised. This happens when superscalar and pipelining technology are introduced into processor design.
The X370 is the full-fat Frappuccino of the bunch. It’s the only one that unlocks Ryzen’s ability to split PCIe lanes between a pair of x16 slots for double-barreled SLI or CrossFireX. Teaming GPUs is practically required for 4K gaming at 60 FPS and max settings....
What Asus is officially boasting:
Which ASUS AM4 motherboard should I buy for Ryzen? - Edge Up
I'm liking the new look HTLM5 is doing, very easy to navigate. The pricing on these is absolutely crazy affordable. Price chart at bottom of article. Would have chose this if not for receiving Skylake model recently, not by choice, an couldn't use AMD for it because of the way its built.
AMD Ryzen™ Community Update
I'm surprised Lisa Su doesn't fire him for that post. The scheduling issue is reproducible in independent testing, which means it is a problem with Windows 10, not even something AMD needs to fix. By saying there is no issue, he is telling every non-professional to not even consider Ryzen, as performance will not be improved from what is shown, and to go with the 7700k, as it has higher performance at a lower price.
Remind me again why I spent $500 on an 1800X?
HURRY THE BLEEP UP AMAZON!!!!
I know, Lisa Su is so cool ❤️ ❤️ I actually watched most of her recent presentations and love her powerful personality....Wish she loved me :/
Edit: OP I know how you feel wih the slow amazon delivery. I am waiting for you to produce benchmarks so I need you to get your ryzen set up ASAP
Would be nice if I could get Watch_Dogs 2 downloaded and use it for a game benchmark...
amdmatt delete this topic, due to Microsoft terminating all Windows 7 and 8.1 updates for users of Ryzen and Kaby Lake processors, I will not be upgrading my machine, am returning the 1800X and RAM, and canceled my ASUS X370-Pro and Samsung 960 Evo 250gb NVMe.
