[VIDEO]: AMD Ryzen is looking good, especially now as motherboard vendors are showing confidence in the CPU and its price. Also, we have more overclocking results for Intel Kaby Lake I7 7700K.
AMD’s Newest Flagship
2017 might just turn out to be AMD’s game-changing year with their newest flagship technology called AMD Ryzen CPU in the frontline. Sources report that AMD‘s Ryzen CPUs incorporates artificial intelligence among its wide stretch of innovations. The processor will come in a powerful 8-core chip will run via simultaneous multithreading supporting 16 thread (8C/16T). With a 3.4GHz and a TDP under a 100 W, AMD’s Ryzen processor delivers a remarkable performance that is similar, if not superior to Intel’s Core i7-6900K that runs at a 140 W TDP says Electronic Design.
AMD’s Zen Based Processor
After several failed attempts to dominate the CPU market, AMD strikes back with a promising Zen based processor architecture. Sources speculate that AMD’s Ryzen processors would hit the market with a price ranging from $500 to $800. Consequently, with reports that AMD’s Ryzen Processors could outperform Intel Core i7-7700K Processor, it is not difficult to believe that AMD has a shot at surpassing Intel’s leading CPU which is slightly more expensive at $1,000.
AMD’s AM4-based X370 units
Alongside AMD Ryzen processors, the aspiring tech giant has also recently launched its next-generation motherboards. AMD’s AM4-based X370 units is set at the high-end segment of the AM4 platform. The chipset based motherboard feature a USB 3.1, easy overclocking options, four x8 PCIe Gen3 lanes for multi-GPU setups or up to two full x16 PCIe Gen3 lanes.
AMD’s highly anticipated Zen-based CPUs and high-end X370 chipsets is expected to arrive into the market in January 2017. AMD’s CEO Lisa Su also hinted that Naples Zen for the server will appear in the second quarter of 2017 while Raven Ridge, Zen APU will join the mix in the second half of the year.
