    I am not an AMD supporter and neither an intel supporter. I have AMD components because the price was justified, sort of..
    And i know that Blender is not used by everybody(i dont like Blender even if its free), therefore it isnt a main point of performance reference, but since they have made the test i thought the results were way too weird.
    My best result in Blender 2.78b was 86 seconds on my slow FX 6350 (stock speed), on a Linux Live OS.
    @ridgid13579 Nice score you have there. And powerful intel. You should try the same test under Linux(Live USB Distro). That should be interesting.
    ps: i dont use TurboMode 4.2Ghz, i have disable it from BIOS, so every setting is fixed, stock speed. This cpu TurboMode/TurboBoost is a joke in my opinion. I am not gone get more performance IF the cpu clock will Boost from 3.9Ghz to 4.2Ghz for ~2 seconds now and then..This is just for marketing, in the eyes of the buyer this translates in "bigger values = more powerful". Its just a mirage.

    Very impressive results. Its on pair with any Intel chip in multi-tasking and provides a great gaming experience, on pair with 2011-V3 and even reaches 7700K leves when Overclocked.

    Review from Tom's: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...-cpu,4951.html

    Also with CPU power consumption: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...u,4951-11.html

    XFR is interesting, if the CPU overclocks automatically when using a better thermal solution, seems the power consumption will be ultimately dependent on the thermal solution used, and calculations for what PSU use too. Or not?

    Same goes with performance. I'm wondering about what happens if you use the stock cooler.

    Difference is as much as 90 W on the PSU input, that would be 80 W on the MoBo/CPU. Think there is still space for fine tuning to get same clocks with much less consumption boost.

    Tremendous multi-tasking performance. Just Tremendous.

    Even in Gaming, against the 7700K at 5.0 GHz it does a very impressive job:

    Gotta hand it to them, they got it right this time. I was expecting Haswell speeds, but it gives Kaby Lake a pretty good run for its money too,.

    Got to say that Jim Keller is some kind of god when it comes to designing CPUs

    Did anybody actually took a meter and measured the cooler retention mechanism, or everybody just plays a trained monkey and runs benchmarks?

    Learning the mounting is most likely incompatible with older sockets, after years of promising it will be, while NONE of the reviewers in the reviews I've read actually cared to check makes me somewhat doubt the quality of such articles.

    IIRC the coolers that use standard AMD clamps/latches/whatever it's called are compatible with AM4, while the coolers that use custom brackets are not. The holes are spaced differently, but some mobo manufacturers might include both AM3 and AM4 sets of holes.


    I don't recall AMD promising anything about cooler compatibility, but my memory is pretty awful

    Yep, the problem is that plastic thing can only support limited number of heatsinks with 12cm fans and I would be concerned even about that, those actually weight around half a kilo already. Anything larger than that needs proper mounting with metalic parts.

    I just don't get it, there is tremendous number of 754 to AM3+ coolers. Now this limited support is better than no support, but if AMD kept the hole dimensions that would be even better. Many of the high-end coolers will just not get upgrade kits. Not everybody is Noctua who often even sends them for free
