AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Cinebench, 3DMark Physics Benchmarks Leaked

We’re just a couple weeks away from AMD’s upcoming launch of their Ryzen CPUs and another leak has sprung as XFastest recently unveiled some new benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X. Although the benchmarks has been pulled from the site, the internet never forgets, and intentional or not, we’re welcoming any information we can get.

As CPU-Z has already been updated to support Ryzen CPUs, we can see that it recognizes the CPU as the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, finally confirming that it’s going to be an 8-core/16-thread part. The base clock is set at 3.4GHz and should be able to turbo up to 3.8GHz with XFR on top of that. The chip will be equipped [...]

AMD Ryzen Wraith Stock Cooler Pictured, Specifications Revealed in Latest Rumor

Following up on the leaked image of trays of AMD Ryzen CPUs as well as an up close shot of the CPU, a new image of a chart with SKUs and specifications of the stock Ryzen Wraith Cooler have also popped up around the web.

Currently, there seem to be two coolers available. The Wraith Max cooler is designed for up to 140W TDP CPUs while the Wrath Spire is designed for 95W TDP CPUs. The Wraith Max looks to have at least two heat pipes that extend out from the base and into the heatsink. The Wraith Spire simply has a fan seated on top of a circular cooler. Despite being rated for up to 140W and 95W TDP, both coolers are quite compact. Horizontal footprint is rated at 105mm [...]

Trays of AMD Ryzen CPUs Pictured and It’s Beautiful

Luckily, today’s a national holiday in the US as the guys over at Videocardz just leaked some dirty, dirty, almost NSFW hardware porn to start you off on your day.

The recently leaked images include pictures of upcoming AMD Ryzen CPUs on their shipping trays ready to be packaged and sent out to a retail store near you.

While not too much is going on in the images, one thing we can see that the CPUs will feature massive RYZEN logos in the middle. In smaller text at the top of the chips, it is also additional confirmation of AMD Ryzen’s X XXXX naming convention.

Additionally, an up close and personal image of the [...]

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, 5 1600X, 3 1300X 3DMark Physics Benchmarks Leaked

Another day closer to the launch of AMD’s Ryzen CPU and another leak. This time around, we get our first sneak preview of how the AMD Ryzen will perform as well as the first preview of the mid/entry-level Ryzen CPUs, the Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 3 1300X.

The 3D Mark Phsyics benchmark scores, which were pulled from the official Futuremark benchmark database were recently compiled by WCCFTech. Sitting at the top is the 8-core Ryzen 7 1700X overclocked to 4.0 GHz, besting the 10 core Intel Core i7-6950X. The 6-core Ryzen 5 1600X at 3.3 GHz managed to beat out Intel’s i7-6850K despite a clock disadvantage. Lastly, we have the 4-core Ryzen 5 1300, which [...]

AMD Zen Architecture Detailed in Depth at ISSCC

At the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), AMD recently presented some additional in-depth information about the upcoming Zen micro-architecture used in their highly anticipated Ryzen CPUs.

The AMD Zen micro-architecture is a complete redesign from the ground up and is the first AMD processor to utilize GlobalFoundries 14 FinFET process. It’s a 4 core design which is bumped up to 8 threads with AMD’s new SMT technology which allows a single core to process up to two threads simultaneously. It’ll also feature 32KB L1 cache per core, 512KB L2 cache per core and 8MB shared L3 cache. Interestingly enough, [...]

Rumor: New AMD Ryzen Price List Emerges, 8-Core Ryzen CPU for $350?

More rumors flowing out of the rumor-mill today as pricing as well as specifications for the full AMD Ryzen lineup have been leaked. This leak itself isn’t verified, but it’s purported to come from an internal product listing of a Chinese retailer for the entire AMD Ryzen product line.

Before we dive in, we’ll be using the prices converted directly from Chinese Yuan (CNY) to USD. If historical trends are to continue, expect actual street prices to be lower due to the Chinese market being roughly 20% more expensive than the US market due to import taxes. For example the Intel Core i7 7700K is priced at 2799 CNY which comes to $406 USD, which is far [...]

8th Gen Intel Core CPUs May Use Both 10nm,14nm Process

Remember the slide Intel recently presented at their annual investor day conference that may have looked a bit strange? The one above where it shows “ADVANCING MOORE’S LAW ON 14nm” with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 right underneath showing a >15% performance increase in SysMark? While many have chalked it up to a typo, it seems like it actually confirms that not all of Intel’s upcoming 8th Generation processors may be manufactured on Intel’s 10nm manufacturing node.

In a recent tweet sent out by Motley Fool Senior Technology Specialist, Ashraf Eassa, Eassa had some interesting bits to share about his experience at the investor [...]
