you maybe right on the date, though AMD launches are a bit weird and there is a shop within an hour from me where I can buy the 1900x now so I dunno. definitely refreshing to see a 64 PCI-E lane 8 core for pretty cheap, considering that the only comparable Intel has 44 PCI-E lanes and costs double.
this year and next are shaping up to be a great time to upgrade :)
All launches are a bit weird this year! Normally there's maybe three CPUs in an entire twelve months worth reviewing properly - this year there's frickin' loads!
I'd suspect you had packet loss as well as the high ping, where as he most likely just had a high ping due to the distance.
My mistake, I genuinely thought the octa-core Threadripper was releasing on August 31, didn't realise they'd decided to launch that yesterday too.
well, they did implement the hardware bundles for a reason and I'm sure sites will put hard limits of 2-4 per customer so that should in theory solve the availability issues.

This is a post from the cracker. get a load of this...
"In previous games like Sgw3, Nier, Prey there were only about 1000 “triggers” called, so we have x300 here. Next – 300,000 called “triggers” were just warmup for Denuvo, after 30 minutes of gameplay it became 2 f’ing MILLIONS of called “triggers”. Protection now calls about 10-30 triggers every second during actual game play, slowing game down. In previous games like Sgw3, Nier, Prey there were only about 1-2 “triggers” called every several minutes during game play, so do the math.”
Sadly, once again the vagaries of Ryzen memory support came into play with the 1500X. The same board, same BIOS, same DIMMs, and yet with the 1500X it couldn't manage to hit 3,000MHz. You're right though, I should have made the point in the article, but it slipped my mind as I was putting it together.
