New range of Ryzen 7 processors, AMD is back in a big way

AMD launches Ryzen for laptops: its new processors continue to grow

The new Ryzen 7 range have finally been unveiled, and they are as good as we wish.

Do you know that feeling you have on Sunday mornings of pure laziness? Your brain works 20% of normal, and although you have time to do what you want, you decide to do nothing.

The desktop processor industry takes too long on a Sunday. Too long with an absolute mastery of Intel, which has shown no interest in accelerating the development of the sector, with continuous versions of the same technology.

Introducing the new AMD Ryzen 7

That dark era is over. Today AMD has introduced new processors for the first time in years. And today Since Intel finally have something to fear. Ryzen has arrived, and there are very good reasons to get excited, even if you don’t want to change computers right now.

Today AMD has announced the worldwide launch of Ryzen 7, its new range of desktop processors, after four years of development. The generational jump has been enormous, including a 52% improvement in the number of instructions per clock cycle compared to previous AMDs.

For starters, AMD wanted to appeal to enthusiasts, gamers and those users looking for something more; Although that does not mean that we are talking about expensive processors, rather the opposite.

So the Ryzen 7 range is composed entirely of models with 8 cores and 16 threads; therefore, they are multitasking-oriented models, although the performance of a single thread remains one of the best.

This is the new Ryzen 7 range

The initial Ryzen 7 range consists of the following models:

Ryzen 7 1700

  • Base speed 3.0 GHz.
  • Turbo speed 3.7 GHz.
  • TDP 65 W.
  • Price 329 dollars.

Ryzen 1700X

  • Base speed 3.4 GHz.
  • Turbo speed 3.8 GHz.
  • TDP 95 W.
  • Price 399 dollars.

Ryzen 1800X

  • Base speed 3.6 GHz.
  • Turbo speed 4.0 GHz.
  • TDP 95 W.
  • Price 499 dollars.

As you can see, they are very tight prices, starting with just 330 dollars; but the really striking thing, the coup de grace is what they can get for that price. These processors are capable of coming face to face with some of the best Intel models, which cost much more.

Performance of a $ 1,000 CPU for half the price

For example, the most expensive model, the $ 500 1800X, lives up to an Intel Core i7 6900K, which costs more than double; It is even capable of taking advantage of it in Cinebench.

In the rest of the models the difference is just as gross; the Ryzen 1700 tear apart the last star of Intel in the i7’s entry range, the Core i7-7700K, for about $ 20 less. The Ryzen 1700X does the same with one of the most important models of the past generation of Intel, the Core i7-6800K.

Of course, we are talking about benchmarks in which multitasking takes on special importance; but they fit with the tests that have been leaked so far and that tell us about more than competent processors.

AMD Strikes a Table Hit with New Ryzen 7s

There are still some details to be specified, of course. Perhaps somewhat higher clock speeds were expected, but the 4.0 GHz barrier is barely reached; You may wonder if the 95W TDP has not become a barrier, or if AMD is saving the letters in case Intel responds seriously with the new Cannon Lake.

Also note that the 1700 (with a TDP of only 65 W) Includes the new Wraith Spire heatsink for free, which is not included in the higher-end models. The message from AMD seems clear, that we look for a good heatsink in the market.

However, all of this cannot hide the fact that AMD has hit the table that has woken up more than one. This is why the new Ryzen 7 range is so important to the market; suddenly, the game has changed, and we can all win.

The new Ryzen 7s will be available to pre-order starting today at select stores. The worldwide launch will take place on March 2. At the same time, a whole range of Ryzen compatible AM4 motherboards will be launched from manufacturers such as ASRock, Gigabyte and Asus.
