AMD begins Intel fightback with new Ryzen CPU range

24 February, 2017, 00:53 | Author: Rachel Hardy

Of these, it is Ryzen 7 1800X that happens to be the highest performance chip and will be the first to reach the market.

AMD already announced that its Ryzen 7 lineup will be available for pre-order from 185 retailers/e-tailers and boutique OEMs as of February 22nd, with the official launch expected on March 2nd, and it appears that all those companies are living up to the promise. This is how AMD's Ryzen 7 1800X managed to overclock at 5.2GHz on all of its 8 cores.

Not only does AMD's Ryzen look set to offer stiff competition for Intel in regards to top-end performance, but it's undercutting the chip giant by nearly 50 percent in some cases. We are talking about AMD's latest Ryzen chipset offering.

Remember that the 1800X will be going on sale for $499 (about £400, AU$650), which is less than half the price of Intel's Core i7-6900K.

At the top of the new line introduced on Wednesday, the flagship Ryzen 7 chip, dubbed the 1800X, will have 8 processing cores and run at a speed of 3.6 GHz.

Third Beta update of iOS 10.3 is now available for developers
This third beta includes mostly bug fixes, though reviewers have identified a new "App Compatibility" section under Settings. Apple's latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 10, has been out since September 2016.

The third and final part is the Ryzen 7 1700, with a base clock of 3.0GHz and a maximum turbo clock of 3.7GHz. The $329 price tag undercuts the i7-7700K, which sells for $350, by about 20 dollars, but AMD claims it will slightly exceed its performance. According to AMD that is set to change.

The same thing happens with the two other AMD processors and their Intel counterparts.

This is not the first time that the Ryzen 7 1700X processor was able to beat an Intel processor, it has achieved the feat in the past, too. Based on what we saw at the Ryzen launch event on Tuesday, that future is in good hands.

AMD began building the architecture Ryzen is based on - Zen - four years ago, its original goal was to hit 40% more instructions per cycle, which is a metric for processor performance, over the previous generation's architecture with the new system. While independent benchmarking is not yet available (or allowed by AMD), AMD did come prepared with numerous benchmarks via live demonstrations.

Base and boost clock speeds, TDP and suggested pricing for each Ryzen 7 variant. Have you pre-ordered the new Ryzen processors? (AMD) closed 89.76% above its 200-day moving average and is 24.21% above another chart threshold, its 50-day moving average. If in fact you actually can buy a fully-built PC (with memory, storage, a Radeon RX 480 graphics card, and RGB LED lighting) for the same price as an Intel processor with roughly similar performance, the choice isn't hard.
