One of the biggest questions that was buzzing around the HardForum last night after the AMD Ryzen 5 Processor Family Introduction was how the cores and CCX units are going to be present on the 4-Core and 6-Core parts. We reached out to AMD this morning and got a definitive answer. Keep in mind that AMD is currently only building one Ryzen core that has 8-Cores. The cores are symmetrically disabled (e.g. 3 cores + 3 cores, or 2 cores + 2 cores, etc.) in the CCXes.
