AMD officially announces Ryzen 7 CPUs

AMD Unveils Cheap, Powerful Flagship Ryzen CPUs

Unlike previous benchmark results, the data below is from production systems with Turbo Mode enabled on both AMD and Intel chips. We are confident AMD is in the right ballpark but time will tell.

As it stands, the 1800X is positioned against the Intel Core i7 6900K, the 1700X against the 6800K and the 1700 against the Intel i7 7700K. Of these, it is Ryzen 7 1800X that happens to be the highest performance chip and will be the first to reach the market.

Ryzen is a product of AMD's Zen microarchitecure. While the first Ryzen CPUs are already out in the wild, AMD is preparing to launch three new 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen CPUs. AMD might also launch Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 chips soon which will be targeted at mid-range and entry-level market respectively, PCWorld reported. "We have thousands of photos we want to edit and create photo albums for".

Oh, and if you're interested in overclocking, we have good news. TDP is Thermal Design Power; it determines the maximum allowable heat generated by a processor under standard conditions. The computer processor market has stagnated in the last five years. This has benefitted our competitor in their financials, but it hasn't benefitted the industry and the end user. "Unprecedented pre-order support from etailers globally shows that our ecosystem and partners are fully behind AMD and our commitment to return innovation and competition to high-performance PCs".

The latest benchamark leaks for the upcoming CPU shows that it's slightly slowth than the Intel Core i7-6900K.

It looks like 2017 is going to be AMD's year. AMD claims the new Wraith cooler will offer "near-silent performance" at 32dB.

AMD has announced three high-end processors from the Ryzen series - Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1700.

AMD beat its IPC goal without compromising its clockspeed. Other details include an L2 + L3 cache of 20 MB (4 MB + 16 MB) and a TDP of 95W.

So, how did AMD achieve Ryzen's performance boost?

And given there are meant to be around 82 new motherboards from different manufacturers around the world the CPUs themselves will only be part of the new PC puzzle.

An entirely new architecture also helps.

The multi-threaded chip has been put under the Cinebench R15 test and it came out with a score of 2499. This allows for better distribution and handling of multiple tasks. The chip has been priced at $399 and it performs 40% better than Intel's Core i7 6800K. Many professional streamers will even have a second system doing the stream encoding, just to keep framerates smooth, but an 8-core/16-thread processor is generally able to handle all the game logic and calculations along with the video encoding without dropping frames.
