    A friend of mine who does reviews for intel told me amd s new product had a problem.
    Never read about that. I'll ask him what the problem he is talking about and report back.

    probably as most vendors for past 8+ yrs have been Intel centric, so drivers and os compatibility wise AMD still will need work as I'd expect :)

    Most likely those are the kind of problems he says amd has as he is 100% into benchmarks and reviews

    which also means performance potentially can get even better for AMD Ryzen :D

    hmmm Intel's Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs will not be soldered Intel's Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs will not be soldered | CPU & Mainboard | OC3D News

    Guess it will limit oc'ing due to thermal limits. Probably, not that bad if you plan to use it for non-oc'd gaming based dedicated hosting I suppose ? OVH Gaming servers are water cooled anyway.

    AMD Ryzen 9 ThreadRipper motherboard rom Asus, Asus ROG X399 Zenith Extreme will have 10Gbps network connectivity ASUS announce ROG X399 Zenith Extreme Threadripper motherboard | CPU & Mainboard | OC3D News !
    These would be great as reverse proxies for cdn/proxy caching or load balancing - 32 cpu threads, quad channel memory and 10Gbps network connectivity :D
