With the advent of the upcoming AMD RYZEN CPU architecture in 2017, I for one would like to see EVGA produce motherboard(s) to take advantage of this potential Intel challenger. I know Intel's Kaby Lake processors are on the horizon, but ... c'mon EVGA ... please put your supreme engineering skills toward making RYZEN boards for the AMD crowd!
 
Thoughts, anyone?

    EVGA has an exclusive partnership with Intel and Nvidia therefore you wont be seeing any AMD or ATI products from them.

    Why is this in the folding sub?  It should be in motherboards.

    AMD has a history of empty promises. It wouldn't be a good business to manufacturer an AND board until they prove themselves worthy. Even if they were going to threaten Intel's market share, evga has a deal with Intel.

    Personally, I hope AMD increases its market share from 25 percent of the desktop processor market with the help of its RYZEN processor, which is rumored to top out in the $500 price range. That seems reasonable to me, seeing that Intel wants over $1600 for its i7-6950X "extreme" processor. That's about the same price for a halfway decent gaming rig ... ridiculously insane cost for for a CPU. Hope EVGA does its own testing and comes up with an alternative to Intel's overinflated product line.

    I believe AMD has been supporting themselves and staying alive because of their work in the mobile market. I personally like their GPU offerings. However, I have a few gripes about the FX 8350 I'm running, but I knew that going in.

    Unless NVidia gets their act together driver-wise (talking folding at home here), and soon, there's the potential for a lot of loyal customers to jump ship for the "other guy." Personally, I just chose an MSI RX480 over an EVGA FTW+ 1060, since AMD/ATI seems to have a handle on their drivers; the price was right, too.
     
    Well, it's a new year. Time to save up a bundle of points for a new EVGA motherboard ... rock on!

    EVGA will most probably be an Intel partner for some years to come. However I am personally interested to see if AMD's Ryzen will perform as good as AMD claims and at a far lower cost than Intel.

    Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 64GB Corsair DDR4 memory (half kit of CMD128GX4M8B2800C14),  ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboard

    If AMD can deliver on a strong, price competitive CPU then EVGA is going to lose out on a hefty chunk of board sales. I may prefer NVIDIA for folding purposes, but I have no qualm about dropping Intel in a heartbeat should AMD deliver the performance of Intel's $1k 8-core at half the price or better. 
     
    I suspect if AMD really does have a real competitor they will be adding higher core models to future chips and most certainly be pricing them lower than Intel would ever consider.

    Intel has had a virtual monopoly on CPUs enabling the DDR4 memory market. AMD's RYZEN CPU will also enable DDR4.
     
    I'm with you, kougar. Will gladly pass on Koby Lake for RYZEN, especially if AMD's product is fairly priced.
     
    Then, I'll only have EVGA's power supplies, GPU's and mice attached to my rigs, unless ...

    It's time both Intel and Nvidia receive some real competition in higher end CPU and VGA components. 25% market share is atrocious and allows Intel, in particular, to price their offerings higher than they need to be.
     
    I'm not sure what sort of contract EVGA has with Intel and Nvidia but in the future I'm sure this could be repealed so they are able to sell AMD compatible products, as well...PROVIDED they see potential in revenue. Should Ryzen and Vega meet or exceed expectations EVGA will be at a disadvantage, especially if AMD is able to reclaim a good portion of the market in either focal point. But thus far EVGA's business model has been solid, supporting only clear market leaders thereby losing few dividends to competing vendors.
     
    I'm pulling for AMD, here. Their resurgence can only be a good thing for the average consumer, so the sooner it materializes the better it will be for the end user, particularly where price is concerned. Not only that, but two similarly poised companies will drive one another to enhance their products to provide more than 5-10% performance increment than their previous generation stock. I will squeeze every mile out of Skylake and Pascal, but when it comes time to rebuild and AMD has quality products at reasonable prices on offer I will not hesitate to substitute.
     
    Come on, AMD. Don't let any of us down.

    I guess, But it will be a while before this is common. Look how many people are still on old hardware now. It will be years before 6+ cores are in the average computer.  I mean, great for AMD, but at the same time this stuff is useless to 99.9999% of people.

    My brother is the quintessential "average user". He plays games; watches YouTube; chats on Discord, Skype, et al; and surfs the web. Even for that type of use, his i7-6850k is vastly more responsive than my i5-4690k. Multi-threading enhances multi-tasking, which is something that effectively everyone does. Much like the improvements in general usability from the earliest multi-core consumer CPUs, even though at that point nothing was designed to use multiple cores.

    For now, mostly. But, with Intel finally upping core count, the market will shift.

    Sure, but if your upgrading at regular intervals it doesn't matter.
