CPU is so big it needs a cartridge system to mount it. I do like the look of the socket.

Initial bench results:
Over the weekend LinusTechTips posted some results on an Alienware Area 51 powered by a 16-core, 32-thread ThreadripperThe 32 GB (4x 8 GB) with 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM was fitted with a FE GTX 1080 Ti.

Some benchmark numbers have been posted and compared to an Intel X299 system with a Core i9-7900X (10 cores, 20 threads) based on the ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe, 4x 8 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 memory, the same GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, and a 512 GB Samsung 950 Pro NVME SSD.

The Threadripper system certainly delivers. Check below some benchmarks in the form of ROTR, 3DMark, Cinebench and Blender.
Check out the impressive results here:

AGESA 1.0.0.7 is incoming:

AGESA 1007 comes with support for Raven Ridge APUs. AMD has also changed the entire BIOS base structure so we have to do a lot of work to port everything to the new version, which may result in further bugs. The advantage is that it makes it easier to support future CPUs (Raven Ridge, Pinnacle Ridge). The cold boot fix will be implemented as soon as we have a recent AGESA version which supports it.
AMD Preps AGESA 1.0.0.7 Firmware to support Raven Ridge APUs
