AMD Unveils Cheap, Powerful Flagship Ryzen CPUs
AMD has finally launched the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, which is their next generation of high-end desktop processors which will bring a revolution in the PC industry.
Considering the price tag of AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, just $499, it is truly an fantastic feat seeing AMD launch an 8-core 16 thread processor that performs even better than Intel's Core i7 6900K at half the price.
Su spoke of the high-level details only, with the nuts and bolts to be released at a later date. This is more or less expected since the Intel chip does have fewer cores. So what is equivalent, you may ask?
The month of January has been a busy month for AMD and the internet is filled with the leaked images, benchmarks and performance comparisons with present high-end processors from their competitors Intel. First is Blender, doing the same 3D rendering of the Ryzen CPU that we've seen in the past.
The company surprised consumers with the prices for its initial Ryzen 7 range, starting at US$329 for the 1700 (3Ghz, boosting to 3.7Ghz), then hitting US$399 for the 1700X (3.4Ghz, boosting to 3.8Ghz) and, finally, US$499 for the 1800X (3.6Ghz, boosting to 4Ghz).
In a similar vein, again with the Cinebench 15 multi-threaded test, the Ryzen 7 1700X scores over and above the Core i7-6800K (its price competition) and higher than the Core i7-6900K which costs 2.5 times as much. What's more telling is that the Intel chip now costs $1,100, or over twice the price. Not only do they offer twice the core count of their comparable Intel counterpart chipsets, but they are also cheaper to buy in the process.
There were some good attempts by AMD at adding more cores and threads into their CPUs, but games were notorious for not using more than a couple of cores at a time. However, after Intel came out with the Core series of chips in the middle of the last decade, AMD retreated.
If you want the full low-down on the Ryzen chips and the Zen architecture check out our guide to AMD's Ryzen. Considering that the Ryzen 1800X only has a 95W TDP, compared to the 140W TDP on the Core i7-6900K, the Ryzen 1800X also wins hands down when it comes to raw performance per watt. Despite boasting eight cores for a total of sixteen threads, the chip costs just $499. The Ryzen 7 1700X has base and boost speeds of 3.4GHz and 3.8GHz respectively, while the Ryzen 7 1700 runs at 3GHz and 3.7GHz respectively.
AMD has revealed that the AMD Ryzen 7 processors which will be available from 2 March.
Many users will be more interested in the four- and six-core versions of Ryzen. General availability will begin on or around March 2nd.
