AMD has created a processor product and brand in AMD Ryzen that expresses the power and efficiency of the all-new high-performance and highly efficient “Zen” x86 core. Multiple architectural advances combined with platform and processing technologies propel users to the next horizon of computing.
We finally have some actual specs on our hands, and it seems like AMD finally has processors that can beat and even surpass Intel.
Releasing first will be the Summit Ridge family of high-end desktop chips featuring an 8-core 16-thread CPU—which is a true 8-core chip using simultaneous multithreading instead of the clustered multithreading of Bulldozer—with the top-end part sporting a base clock of 3.4GHz. It’s not as speedy as Intel’s latest quad-core desktop parts (the i7-6700K has a base clock of 4GHz), but it does stack up against Intel’s 8C/16T Broadwell-E processor, which has a base clock of 3.2GHz.
AMD Ryzen processors will enable the digital creators, VR pioneers, game world explorers, and tech thrill-seekers. Those determined to imagine, code, and conquer without boundaries in the immersive computing era.
