Get ready for variety Processors New at a variety of prices, that will finally give a little pepper to the huge drowsy material market
Dear processor lovers, please open your diaries and calendars and mark them with a prominent sign the last Tuesday of the current month of February - because according to all the new indications on the net, this is the magic time when we will start to see the new generation of processors from home AMD Landing on the store shelves. we hope.
It will be a little longer before we find out if this deadline (which works out well with the official statements of AMD On launch during the first quarter of 2017) is indeed accurate, but in the meantime we are already getting many new details that seem to reveal everything you need to know about the Ryzen processors without waiting for the moment AMD You'd be kind enough to tell us about it.
According to a report by the world-renowned Taiwan site Coolaler, the new family of processors AMD The new R17 and R5 family subsystems, four of which will be offered with four processing cores without SMT technology that doubles the number of logical cores Four processors with four processing cores with SMT, four more with 3 physical processing cores, and 7 logical cores, and for dessert no less than five different models that will include eight real processing cores and will support SMT for twice the number of processing threads.
All models will come as promised with an upwardly multiplied frequency multiplier for self-acceleration - and all will be offered without the addition of a built-in graphics core, an interface like the chip developer's FX models from the past and the X's X models. Intel.
If the names of the models alone do not satisfy you, you will probably be interested in another recent report that purports to provide us with the price tags intended for the European market for three of the leading core octagonal models on the way to us - 600 euros (including tax) for the Ryzen family's R7 1800X. , Which has already been officially introduced as a direct competitor for the advanced Core i7-6900K Intel Which carries an official price tag of 1,000 USD, 470 EUR for the R7 1700X model, which will probably offer more modest workflows and 390 EUR for the R7 1700 model that might be missing some of the X's other tech features and probably also A lower thermal envelope that will, of course, also affect the maximum performance potential (but you can make it more suitable for dedicated compact systems).
According to other data that claims to provide us with the prices for the models in North America, the R7 1800X will cost about $ 490, the R7 1700X will be offered for about $ 380 - while the R7 1700 will cost consumers about $ 315. This is a significant difference from the European prices we mentioned earlier, so it seems that we will need to wait for more data before we can know the exact numbers that await us.
These prices may sound high and massive, but it is worth mentioning that these are core octagonal models that have never been offered at such "reasonable" price levels before, and below them are 12 more hexagonal and square models that will no doubt be priced at lower cost tags - so Ryzen's core hexagons may go into battle Head to head directly in front of the current quad-core squares of Intel Family ofCore i7, whereas the quadrilateral cores with 8 logical cores will likely compete with the X-Core i5 that do not support equivalent HyperThreading technology. In other words - we seem to have a lot of potential here for fierce competition that was unparalleled from the days of Phenom or even from the days ofAthlon In the distant past.
All of this technical data sounds intriguing and even very exciting, but it is worth noting that we have yet to see any practical or independent comparison between these products of AMD For Intel counterparts, and if you remember the pre-launch excitement and disappointment we experienced after it in the bulldozer era - it's probably best not to take the champagne out of the fridge for now, until we start seeing data that will show the full picture. The potential that exists here is huge for home consumers on the edge, and now it remains only to wait a little longer to find out if we have a comeback from the movies here.
