Concluding , we can’t really promise about the Boost clock numbers but it definitely calls for a war leaving us build our next-gen AMD beast with this architecture and if AMD’s price history is anything but accurate we would look at a beast in a budget.
For long period , in the world of tech , Intel has been dictating the space of enthusiast chip set and AMD being hiding in this wilds comes back answering Intel with it’s latest offerings – the Zen which just got revealed at their live stream event called Horizon.
We have seen guys working hard to showcase the event and AMD’s offering , but here we wanted to give a brief explanation without wasting your valuable time enlightening you of the same.
Ryzen , AMD’s new offering gave it’s entry in the right shape being a 8-core/16-thread CPU clocked massively at 3.4G with 20MB of L2+L3 cache.
Leaked , Ryzen just draws 95 Watts of offering the same performance of a i7-6900K which eats 140 Watts.
Ryzen chips will automatically overclock to it’s maximum potential under any cooling conditions including LN2.
Ryzen supporting DDR4 memory supporting dual-channel will only support 64GB of RAM.
Adding it will have a tons of sensors for accurate temps to cache bandwidth measurement .
The outstanding performance tested on a AM4 platform with a Vega GPU chipset, here you get a glance:
Our thoughts about the clash between the i7-6900K and Ryzen chip:
AMD is not offering boring thoughts this time as we can clearly see that Ryzen matches up with Intel’s i7-6900K with 14nm Fin-Fet process , 8-cores/8-threads and 20MB of cache , besides as mentioned it’s meant to draw less power than i7-6900K and a base frequency of 3.4 G , 200Mhz above Intel.
Talking about the memory it supports , we don’t think one would need more than 16GB of that with this platform to harness performance and to game on but hampers a a little on processing distribution.
