AMD's long-awaited challenger to the Intel hierarchy isn't far away. And while we don't have specifics on an Australian price or availability, we're starting to get an idea of what AMD's new CPU will look like.
The details have since been taken down, but for a brief period Belgian electronics retailer Centralpoint had them online. A cache of the page is still available on Google, however.
Digital Trends spotted the listing first, so kudos to them. And if you like their information in a slightly more readable form, here's the full details of what was posted:
- AMD Ryzen R7 1800X: 8 cores, 16 threads, 3.6GHz base speed, 4.0GHz boost speed, 16MB L3 Cache, 95W TDP
- R7 1800 Pro: 8 cores, 16 threads, 16MB L3 Cache, 95W TDP, rest unstated
- R7 1700X: 8 cores, 16 threads, 3.4 GHz base speed, 3.8 GHz boost speed, 16MB L3 Cache, 95W TDP
- R7 1700: 65W TDP, rest unstated
- R7 1700 Pro: 8 cores, 16 threads, 3.0GHz base speed, 3.7GHz boost speed, 16MB L3 Cache, 65W TDP
The R7 1700 and the R7 1800 Pro presumably have the same base/boost speeds as the X-named variants, although for now we'll leave that one as unconfirmed. Digital Trends also got details on the four and six-core Ryzen R5 chips, as well as the entry level quad-core R3 CPUs.
Some synthetic benchmarks featuring Ryzen have leaked online over the last couple of weeks, but the real interesting part will be when games start to get involved. Expect to see more of that pop up in the next week or so. Early March isn't far away now.
