AMD Ryzen 7 CPU Launches In March

AMD is aiming for the high-end PC market with the new Ryzen series. While the Ryzen CPU isnt new, these 3 new 8-core, 16-thread CPUs are. But a high-performance chipset, comes with a high-performance price tag, The Ryzen will see AMD entering into the $300+ area, an area that has been dominated by the means extremely popular Intel’s Core i7 CPUs.

The 1700, 1700X, and 1800X Ryzen 7 chips all feature 8 cores and 16 threads on the new AM4 platform. The $499 1800X is touted as the world’s best performing 8-core desktop CPU, beating out an Intel Core i7-6900K. The 1800X also features a base clock of 3.6GHz and boost clcock of 4.0 GHz with a TDP of 95. The 1700X is $399 with base and boost clocks of 3.4 and 3.8 GHz with the same TDP of 95 as the 1800X. The downside to these two chips is that neither include a cooler, though just about anyone who’s willing to spend that much on a desktop CPU will surely already have their own cooling solution in mind. The third Ryzen 7 CPU, the 1700, has a suggested price of $329 and includes AMD’s new Wraith Spire cooler. The 1700 features base and boost clocks of 3.0 and 3.7 GHz while maintaining a TDP of only 65.
