So, We at Protonics have tried our best, to provide you the most information in the least complicated language.
A Few days back, AMD CEO Lisa T. Su held a conference where the Ryzen chipset line was revealed, announced, comprising of 9 chipsets, whose description has been given in the below table:
Product Line Model Base Clock (GHz) Boost Clock (GHz) TDP (Watts) Included Cooler Suggested Price
|CPU||Cores/Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||XFR Clock||Price|
|Ryzen 7 1800X||8/16||3.6GHz||4.0GHz||4.0GHz+||$495|
|Ryzen 7 1700X||8/16||3.4GHz||3.8GHz||3.8GHz+||$389|
|Ryzen 7 1700||8/16||3.0GHz||3.7GHz||–||$319|
|Ryzen 5 1600X||6/12||3.3GHz||3.7GHz||3.7GHz+||$259|
|Ryzen 5 1500||6/12||3.2GHz||3.5GHz||–||$229|
|Ryzen 5 1400X||4/8||3.5GHz||3.9GHz||3.9GHz+||$199|

|Ryzen 3 1100||4/4||3.2GHz||3.5GHz||–||$129|
The Benchmark details of these chipsets revealed their performances was better most of the INTEL chipsets, and with almost half the price.
YES!You read it right! Half the price.
INTEL i7-6900k vs AMD Ryzen 7 1700x
Here are some of the other highlights:
- CrossFire SLI will be available only on X370 motherboards
- Every Ryzen chip can be overclocked
- Overclocking is supported only on motherboards with X370, X300, and B350 chipsets
- Motherboards will support plenty of the latest features including NVMe and DDR4 RAM
AMD has promised to provide the selling of these chipsets from 2nd March 2k17.And You’ll be able to buy the Ryzen based CPU’s from then onwards.(Although looking at the current buzz among computer geeks, the queue for these chipsets is going to be long! SO BE FAST!)
THE NEW CHIPSETS HAVE ALSO BEEN PROVIDED WITH “MULTITHREADING CAPABILITIES”
WHAT IS RYZEN?
AMD RYZEN is a new 8 core x86 architecture built on the 14nm FinFET manufacturing process.
The architecture of the Ryzen is similar to KABY LAKE and SKY LAKE architectures of the INTEL i7 4 core 8 core thread chipsets but with 8 core and 16 threads higher efficiency and 40% more IPC.
(And all of this comes for almost half the price!! SWEET!!)
The eight-core Ryzen is rumoured to consume 95 Watts.
Although the compatibility hasn’t been announced, compatible rumors have it that compatible with almost all AMD modules.
