AMD has revealed the newest and highly anticipated Ryzen 3 and Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The prices for the Ryzen 3 line will have as an aim the entry-level users, while the admirer-class Ryzen Threadripper is made and created for those who desire gigantic amounts of processing power in a desktop. AMD is really expecting to achieve an edge over Intel’s offerings in the same space by providing higher and better performance and cheap prices.
There are two existent Ryzen 3 models, which side with the mid-range and high-end Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 generations, achieving AMD’s new desktop platform. The Ryzen 3 1200 and Ryzen 3 1300X have four cores but are not like the other multi-threaded CPUs announced so far. Nevertheless, AMD will be leaning on four physical cores as a plus over Intel’s Core i3 range that are dual-core and are using Hyper Threading to transfer four threads. The Ryzen 3 1300X has a minimum speed of 3.5 GHz and can increase up to 3.7 GHz, while the Ryzen 3 1200 is overseen at 3.1 GHz and respectively 3.4 Ghz. AMD has not made widely known other specification like the cache sizes, but the names and speeds are steady with the Ryzen 3 Pro lineup disclosed late last month so a 65W TDPs are to be expected.
The price for the lower price chips has not been made known either, but with the most inexpensive Ryzen 5 priced at Rs. 12.199 in India, we can anticipate AMD to target the under-Rs. 10.000 market. The greatest challenge for AMD will be that Ryzen 3 CPUs do not have built in graphics, which will make the cost rise up for anyone picking one of these CPUs over an Intel Core i3. The both CPUs are known to become available around the world on 27th of July.
The other end of the market, AMD has certified that its 16 core, 32 thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU will have a set price for $999 or approximately Rs. 64.380 and there will be as well a 12 core, 24 thread version called the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, priced at $799 or approximately Rs. 51. 485. The flagship 1950X version will run a minimum speed of 3.4 GHz and can increase up to 4.0 GHz, while the 1920X model can accomplish a higher 3.5 GHz minimum speed but has the same increased ceiling.
Threadripper CPUs have the same processors as the Intel’s new Core-X series, with a high-end Core i9 models included in their view. The Ryzen Threadripper platform take workstation class features to a consumer desktop, such as 64 lanes of PCIe connectivity for up to 4 high-end graphic cards and various I/O devices running at full speed. All CPUs are free and open for overclocking.
The preorders for the Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition will start on the 27th of July in the US. More details about the Threadripper launch and AMD’s forthcoming Radeon Vega graphics cards will be disclosed at the annual SIGGRAPH conference that will be on the 30th of July.
