HWBOT Poll: Will you purchase AMD Ryzen on launch day?

With AMD's Ryzen processor launch coming up around the same time the Game Developers Conference, we are looking forward to the response of the overclocking enthusiast community. As you know, AMD has announced that all their processors will be unlocked and able to overclock which is contrary to Intel's strategy of only offering overclocking on the HEDT and K-sku parts. Overclocking is still limited to the most expensive motherboards featuring the X370 chipset, so there is still a premium to pay. That being said, with the rumored prices for the 8-core processors in mind the AMD platform may have a HUGE impact on the community.

In our poll, we ask the community "Will you purchase AMD Ryzen on launch day?" and give 6 options: Yes, 8C16T , Yes, 8C8T, "Yes, 4C4T", "Yes, all SKUs!, "Yes, if the benchmarks are good" and "No, not at all". Currently, it appears the vote is split between a third saying they'll go straight for the most high-end part, a third indicating they will wait for the benchmark results and a third completely dismissing the processors altogether.

To cast your vote, simply check the sidebar on our home page and check the option of your choice.

I want at least all SKUs in one pieces

United States Gunslinger 说:

I've never owned any motherboard or CPU from AMD, just out of curiosity is there a "must have" mainboard for these chips?

FlanK3r 说:

best choice for LN2 will be X370 chipset, for daily computer PC (because there will be also 65W 8c/16t) could be great X300 board (ITX) or B350 (lower chipset, still with support OC) My choice will be ROG Crosshair ,-)

Belgium Massman 说:

B350 supports overclocking?

Indonesia Lucky_n00b 说:

They did say all Ryzen CPU will be unlocked, and based on the platforms on the market now, they didn't lock their multiplier CPU OC to certain chipset (even low-end A58/A68 for FM2/2+, and 780G for AM3/3+ is allowed to change multi, despite some mobo design for this class were really limited in VRM design). So yeah, it would be nice if B350 allow multiplier overclocking :D

I seriously can't wait for Zen but how long after launch I get it is still up in the air

https://www.overclock3d.net/news/cpu_mainboard/asus_has_announced_their_crosshair_vi_hero_am4_motherboard/1 Its new board, not old AM3+. AM4 CPUs are new, 2017 new AMD architecture not compatible with old system of AM3+.

Canada WhiteWulfe 说:

I'll probably get some sort of Zen setup, but it will definitely depend on the benchmarks. Ryzen holding it's own again Intel would be a nice change though!

United States Splave 说:

I'm in

United States filmbot 说:

I'm super excited to get some new AMD stuff in the house. If possible, I will be ordering on launch.

United Kingdom Jumper118 说:

I can't wait. Asus crosshair vi apex needed in my life :D also wouldn't mid a 4c8t chip for dailies to replace my i5 57657657567565c

说:

Definitely thinking about it, I've stocked up on DD4 RAM just for this, coming up from a Z77 platform, so I'm a little excited.

Just have to decide on a motherboard. Thinking X370, but just judging by the pictures provided on the retailers' sites so far for board layouts and power.

MSI's boards are looking good.

Belgium Massman 说:

[MENTION=198564]ShampooCA[/MENTION], I would strongly wait for reviews to come out. I'm not confident that all boards will be able to do reference clock overclocking or the high memory frequency

What do you mean?
The x series boards and AB boards will be able to overclock.
I'm just waiting to pull the trigger on either the 1600x or the 1700x depending on how high of a clockspeed they can hit.
Will be better for games.
