American company AMD brings a completely new processor platform to Ryzen. In the first wave, these eight-core models are fully matched to much more expensive competitors with the Intel logo.
Get ready for a revolution in desktop processors. After four years of development, AMD have finally launched their brand new Ryzen processor, which takes full advantage of Zen architecture. With its superior performance, this processor is designed for versatile multimedia use. Another important feature is its unlocked multiplier. Because it comes at a comparatively low price, the Ryzen will certainly establish a strong position on the market .
The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor has 8 cores in total, clocked at 3 GHz. It overclocks automatically under load, with its clock speed reaching 3.7GHz. This will give you enough power to explore the possibilities of virtual reality or play games in 4K.
High clock speed alone doesn’t guarantee high-end performance. It seems AMD has been taking notes, because the Ryzen line is equipped with tried and tested MultiThreading technology, a first for AMD processors. Ryzen’s multithreading can process up to sixteen threads simultaneously, which means all processor tasks can now be performed much more quickly. The benefits this technology brings are absolutely indisputable. When you also consider the processor’s open multiplier and 14nm manufacturing process, you surely have a truly uncompromising solution for processing.
With the arrival of Ryzen processors, the time has come to significantly upgrade your trusty PC. Maybe you want to experience the latest features, such as USB 3.1 (USB-C), PCIe 3.0, NVMe, 32Gb/s slots M.2 or SATA Express? All of this can be found on the AM4 socket motherboards. The ideal platform for this new processor is Microsoft Windows 10, but there is also unofficial Windows 7 support.
