Desktop Ravenridge Coming Soon!


I ordered my Ryzen 5 2400G but it was marked temporarily out of stock, it is set to be released on February 12, 2018 and I can’t wait!

The Ryzen 5 2500u has been a work horse mobile APU, however the lack of regular driver updates have dampened my enthusiasm. I am looking forward to a new beastly desktop APU that puts the old Kaveri and Bristolridge APUs to shame -not to mention Crystalwell toting Intel APUs!

Look at that, Ravenridge just demolishes Kaveri/Godavari and that’s most likely without fast RAM and a hefty overclock!

I used this article to select my motherboard, and I chose the MSI B350M PRO-VDH. I’m risking it and going for Corsair DDR4-4000Mhz ram, hopefully I’ll be able to set it close to its max rating. Obviously the Samsung 960 EVO was the only choice for NVME SSD. I added this Noctua cooler just in case I have clearance issues with wraith stealth cooler in my SFF case. I’ll be trying an XBOX ONE bluetooth controller and leaving the wonky but tried-and-true DS4 behind.

I feeling a mixture of elation and nasseua from all this spending but my curiosity and passion is blindingly forcing my hand, all that said I can’t wait to put togehter my rig!
