AMD's New Desktop Chips Should Give Intel a Run for Its Money

AMD Unveils Cheap, Powerful Flagship Ryzen CPUs

AMD is giving what the people want, and it's none other than Ryzen. The top-of-the-line R7 1800X sells for $499, less than half the price of its rival Intel chip.

Cinebench is the only test we have graphed data for, but it wasn't the only test that AMD showed. Intel should look out, as these chips, in some situations, can outperform its Core i7 processors!

With Ryzen, AMD hopes to reinvigorate a waning PC industry, which has experienced overall annual decline in sales for the past five years.

Stepping things up a notch, the "Wraith Max" is a tweaked FX-era Wraith cooler (horizontal boxed design with a single fan) that can handle up to 140W processors and has been designed with noise levels in mind while not sacrificing too much performance. In the meantime, it appears that Intel will be somewhat limited in its ability to respond to Ryzen.

Meanwhile, the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 are set to roll out at a later date, and needless to say, they are the midrange and budget-friendly variants of the series respectively.

Anyone looking to get in on the ground floor of next week's Ryzen 7 launch can start pre-ordering their new chips now from their preferred parts vendor.

The Ryzen 1700 will retail for $330 and is being placed against the Intel 17-700k which costs $350.

This is the top-end part from the Ryzen family so far. According to AMD's benchmarks, the 1800X ties the 6900K on singlethreaded benchmarks, and beats Intel on multithreaded performance. "We need more processing power".

Some senators, such as ohn McCain and Lindsey Graham favor an even broader investigation. Like the Democrats when the Benghazi committee was investigating that attack.

With these test scores and comparisons, it would seem that AMD's Ryzen line is going to be doing better than Intel's i7 processors.

And this chip really must terrify Intel.

As reported by PC World, CineBench measures a CPU's ability to render a 3D scene and multi-threating.

Don't let the lack of an X fool you. We don't know what the Ryzen chips stated TDP is, although it's rumoured to be 95W. The result is that the 1700 finishes in 23 seconds, compared to 27 seconds on the 7700K. "One big question will be whether Intel will lower the price of its i7". The 7700K's frequency is higher though, ranging between 4.2 - 4.5 GHz.

"We're starting to see insatiable demand for better experiences when creating content", AMD CTO Mark Papermaster told Forbes Magazine.

Streaming performance was very interesting, however.

Clearly, the extra cores and threads offer a noticeable advantage. You could infer that they are suddenly really anxious about something.
