Since last 24 hours, this is the newest AMD RyZen member/sku falling of The
Sky! :-)

Monster AMD Ryzen 16-Core CPU Could Be On The Way: $1000 Cheaper And Faster
Than Intel

I just sent to AMD questions regarding this one (extra nice if Z370 would
be integrated in it and make this silicon true SoC)!

Exactly what I need for one of projects I am trying to boost. And if the
price for single sku would be $700 USD (as they advertise), The Sky is The
Limit! [image: Inline image 1]
