It’s NEW - it’s FAST – you can game and stream at the same time with performance to spare!!
There’s been a lot of hype about this new high performance AMD CPU and it seems well deserved.
So what is the Ryzen processor and why so talked about?
Well, Ryzen was designed to be compatible with the latest hardware in PC gaming but specifically be able to perform exceptionally well at high loads. To enable this, the company needed to design and develop a new chipset for their processors, these being the X370, X300 and a new socket the AM4.
The launch was March 2nd and there are 3 types of chips which range in price and capability so there must be one that suits you!
These new products, AMD CPUs, have been designed to feed the needs of gamers and enthusiastic professionals in mind producing impeccable performance at impressive speeds.
To explain: This new AMD design brings much better power efficiency and performance due to the completely new Micro architecture – this is a fundamental core design which makes up the chips and is referred to as Zen.
The new AMD chips are imbued with Sense MITechnology which consists of 5 parts:
- Precision boost which basically boosts performance without consuming extra power,
- Extended Frequency range (XFR) which means clock speeds can be nudged past their official maximum when/if Ryzen detects advanced CPU cooling.
- Smart Prefetch which works with : 4. Neural net Prediction to identify and examine your usage and will preload your processor with and data which will enable your app workload to be approached more efficiently.
- Pure Power technology enables the many on chip sensors to continuously optimise power and importantly temperatures with power usage but still maintaining top performance.
Reviewers of the new product say that the biggest development is that the number of instructions per clock, i.e. the calculations for each tick of the CPUs internal GHz clock that Zen can achieve has now exceeded 40% over previous AMD designs.
Anyone thinking of wanting a high performance workstation or home server that will competently double up as a good gaming PC – then this is for you. Up until now Intel was the only option if you wanted to achieve this but the new Ryzen has put an end to Intels monopoly of the market. Plus – the Ryzen prices are much more affordable!
