AMD Announces Ryzen 7 Processor, Says It Beats Intel Core i7

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is all set to compete with Intel in a bigger way, AMD on Wednesday shared their plans to “hard launch” their Ryzen series of processors on March 2. Guess what? These chips are said to outperform Intel’s bests, and at the same time, the cost will be half the price compared to Intel’s high-end processors.

Well, AMD is all set to release three tiers of AMD Ryzen 7 chips which will feature eight cores and 16 threads. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X will be accessible at $499, and it performs 9% better than Intel Core i7 6900L. The base clock speed will be 3.6Ghz, and the boosted clock speed is 4.0 GHz.
The next in the Ryzen series is AMD Ryzen 7 1700X which will be available at $399, and it performs 39% better than Intel Core i7 6800K. The base clock speed will be 3.4Ghz, and the boosted clock speed will be 3.8Ghz.

The scores were equal despite a difference of about 12 percent in their clock speeds. Besides this, the Ryzen 7 1700X has access to more cache at 8MB, while the Intel processor has access to 6MB of cache. To even out the situation, the same Ryzen 7 1700X processor was compared with Core i7-7700K with Turbo speed of 4.5 GHz and the scores of the 1700X were scaled up to 4.5 GHz.

With this test, both the processors had access to exactly the same amount of cache at 8MB. The scores changed to 140 for the Intel Core i7-7700K and the Ryzen 7 1700X scored 147 points, which is still more than Intel processor but the gap between the two has decreased.

AMD Ryzen series of processors will be one sale on over 180 different retailers across the world and will be sold individually and in OEM configuration. The Ryzen line-up has been segregated into the high-performance Ryzen 7, the midrange Ryzen 5, and the value focused Ryzen 3. The three processors hitting the store shelves on March 2 include the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X priced at Rs 37,999 (and $499 in the US). The next in line Ryzen 7 1700X will retail for Rs 29,499 ($399). The Ryzen 7 1700 will cost Rs 24,499 ($319). The Ryzen 5 and 3 series of processors are expected to ship later this year, but AMD is tight-lipped about the release date and pricing.
