Strengths of the product

Faster (stock clock 3.6 / 4.2GHz boost) Can be overclocked Works with most AM4 mobo's Price/Performance Zen 2 Frames Per Second boost Boot time Resolves some previous Ryzen driver issues

Weaknesses of the product

Some heat monitoring issues Some driver issues Creates new Ryzen OS driver issues Requires BIOS beta firmware update

Additional Comments

This chip is a beast! After the required firmware update everything from booting up to opening programs, files or folders has seen improvement. Any skipping or stuttering that I had noticed with the r1600 during general operation and in games has been rendered practically insignificant. The improvements to this chip are many in comparison; - I no longer have to use a PCI-E USB expansion card (in fact, I cant) for my Oculus Rift 3 sensor setup - I am currently managing a manually set 4.325GHz OC @ 1.336v, 63.5º C full load, 43º C idle. Practically 3600X boost speed, so far so good! - 20 fps boost in games (normal and VR) - Runs well on a cheap MSI Gaming Plus x370 motherboard (with a beta BIOS update, check your AM4 mobo manufacturers website) - Cheap and easy upgrade - GTX 1080 cards and up should no longer see bottlenecks - Ram overclocked exactly as it did with r1600; rated for 2666MHz OC'd to 3200MHz 18-18-18-35 **Note- There is currently issues with heat monitoring on 3 series boards, I had to download Ryzen Master to monitor and test the temps... I am not using the stock cooler for my chip, I have a Thermal Take Floe Ring 280mm AIO which keeps it nice and cool. Apparently this chip runs quite hot without aftermarket cooling so with the savings from not having to buy a mobo perhaps invest in one (if you don't already have anyways) Plug and play Frames per second and overall experience boost at an excellent price! Highly recommended!! Don't forget to buy thermal paste :)
