AMD's Ryzen 7 1800X beats Intel's i7 6900K at half the price

AMD Unveils Cheap, Powerful Flagship Ryzen CPUs

Before we get to the videos, keep in mind that this is an AMD staged event. If you're sold, pre-orders opened up today - you can reserve yours right now. All we can say for now is that they will be available in Q2 and H2 2017. Yesterday AMD's president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su took the wraps off a set of three desktop processors based on this architecture, aimed squarely at the enthusiast and professional segment. We'll do our best!

Ryzen 7 consists of 3 CPUs, as you can see below. During the show, an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU has been pushed to 5.2GHz while running Cinebench R15 and it looks like those chips are capable of breaking records.

The processors will come in 1800X ($499), 1700X ($399), and 1700 ($329) forms and all feature 8 cores and 16 threads. The Ryzen will be on sale at 180 retailers all over the world and will be available in OEM system and individual configurations.

AMD is not just talking about instruction per clock, though.

Those who'd waited for hours formed a human wall to block them. "I inherited a mess and am in the process of fixing it". No, I just - I'm coming in - That's okay, let him up, let him up. "They don't get it, but they're starting to get it".

TechPowerUp is reporting that a basic cooler similar to AMD's pre-Wraith style of heatsinks will be packaged with the lower end Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 chips - mainly the 65W models. AMD has been out of the scene for several years now as their last products didn't do well in the market. So despite this, 40% IPC always seemed a somewhat lofty goal, because Bulldozer was so underwhelming, and despite this low starting point. Furthermore, brands expected to release motherboards with AMD technology (X370 and B350 Ryzen processors) will include ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI.

This is something we will need to test in due course! Thanks to its 14nm architecture, the Ryzen can accommodate 4.8 billion transistors.

Intel Core i7-7740K, 4.3GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz, a thermal design power rating of 100W, and with 8MB of L3 cache. AMD configured two quad-core Intel CPUs in dual-channel mode. The incredible thing is that while Intel's 8 core solution costs $999 USA, which is more in the case of Core i7-6900K, AMD's Ryzen 7 1700 will cost just $329 U.S. and have the same or even higher performance when it comes to IPC, WccFtech reported. This is considered to be the true rival to the 6900K which tops it at 9% increased performance at the half the price. What's interesting is that it offers the same performance Intel's Core i7 6900 does which costs over $1000. It is said to be a "Black edition" processor. But you will have to wait until March 2.
