I'm an indie Game Developper working on every OS (Windows, MacOS and 2 different linux including gentoo) and I would like change my PC to increase my productivity.
The problem is that as an Developper I will have to compile a lot so I will have this problem:
I thought it was old enought to be sure I will have a UA1725+ if I order one now but I had a UA1716 so I returned it to amazon immediatly...
My question is: How to I get a Ryzen with the RMA remplacement ?
As professional I'm interested and open to both Ryzen and Ryzen pro as long as it has the RMA remplacement.
I tried to to into stores and ask for a Ryzen7 and check week of production (fortunately we can see the processor on the package) but everything is under UA1716 (so they will cause segv in my builds).
Note: the amd.com website is inconsistent about Ryzen Pro you can find a page saying "notify me when it's available" implying that it isn't yet: Ryzen™ PRO Processors | AMD
and another AMD Ryzen™ 7 PRO 1700 | AMD saying it's available since "29/06/2017".
PS: I'm also interested on the procedure to get engineering samples if that's possible
