    AMD today announced in a live streaming video event called "New Horizons" that their Zen based cpu is to be called RYZEN.

    A quick review is posted here at TomsHardware:

    Edit: AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su claims RYZEN is on schedule for Q1 launch, with a clock speed of 3.4 GHz at lauch featuring turbo boost frequencies that go higher. Comparisons claiming comparitive processing power were were made with Intel's i7 6900K (which retails for about $1100).

    I know we are not really focused on X64 yet, but I must admit to being really jazzed up about AMD's new Ryzen 7 CPU.
    Sure, its a little more expensive than low end processors, but its a lot less than a higher end i7.
    AND it benchmarks really well (16 freaking threads guys).
    Combine that with some of the great gpus that AMD has been introducing, and this is a killer combo.

    I would love to run MorphOS 4.0 on something like this.

    This would be ~ 1,000 USD/EUR well invested.
