AMD Desktop BEAST RYZEN launches on March 2nd!

AMD next BEAST PROCESSOR line will launch on March 2nd and Intel will finally have some real competition, time to upgrade those Gaming PCs now!
AMD Ryzen

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X - 499 USD

AMD Ryzen R7 1800X is the flagship processor and it has 8 cores with 16 threads and is assumed to get a Boost frequency of 4.00 GHz. The boost frequencies are not confirmed, but the indications we have seen the past few weeks would state a 4.0 GHz Turbo and 3.6 GHz base clock. No further data was revealed. Now keep in mind (if the perf is close) a similar 8-core Intel CPU would cost you about 1,200 euros, the cost for the flagship Ryzen R7 1800X processor would be 599.99 euros. These are unlocked (multiplier) processors.

The next AMD Ryzen in line is the R7 1700X, this one would again get 8 cores and 16 threads but this time at a Turbo frequency of 3.80 GHz, so yes this is pretty much the same processor, just with a lower base at 3.4 GHz and Turbo frequency.

Then there is the AMD R7 Ryzen 1700, this would be a top-end CPU for gamers and yes, again you'll receive an 8 core and 16 threads processor. This time at a Turbo frequency of 3.70 GHz, the most notable being that it is the only model that indicates a TDP, which is set as 65W whereas the other two would be 95 Watt parts. The base clock frequency would be 3.0 GHz.
Other models have been spotted. I personally do not think the processors listed below aside from the three aforementioned ones will launch anytime soon. Again the above three processors (we think) will launch first. All these processors would fit Socket AM4 and thus you can use the same motherboard.


On the same day, AMD will be launching the X370 and B350 chipsets based motherboards first. Processors wise you'll see three 8-core parts launched with availability on March the 2nd. Some webshops have however listed the 28th, so there remains to be a little confusion there. Motherboards wise a lot has surfaced online already, including details on the flagship Crosshair VI Hero and Prime X370 motherboards.
