    JeeBee replied to a thread Consumer Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 in CPUs
    Rumours get more wild as time passes! Still, no turbo and no xfr and 4.5GHz all-core would be a very nice thing to see from 7nm - better than I am...

    Looks like a card designed to eat up remaining Polaris 20 chips.

    Yeah, it's a real shame. I remember when Polaris 10 was just a rumour, and we would guess what its configuration would be. The general range was 2560...

    Probably a cost reason to still use that memory, but it is a real shame. Let's hope it overclocks well. 10Gbps GDDR5X would have been nice - I guess...
