List of AMD Ryzen Processors Surfaced – From R7 1800X to R3 1100 (According to Leaks)

A few days ago, a list of the upcoming AMD Ryzen processors surfaced, leaked from a Chinese site Coolaler.com. The original post seems to be deleted already, but the leak spread like a wildfire on the web. AMD will have three difference segments of its Ryzen processors: the R7, R5 and R3, just like Intel’s i7, i5 and i3. AMD’s Ryzen lineup will have a total of 17 processors. Five of these have 8 cores and 16 threads, four 6 core/12 threads and the rest are all quad cores. All of these processors are reported to be released this coming March 2017, probably March 2. Check out the list of AMD Ryzen processors below.

Unlike Intel’s lineup where there’s the high end desktop platform (X99 chipset and Broadwell-E) and a mainstream line-up (Core series for 100/200 series chipset), AMD has only one type of socket that will be used starting from its entry level processors up to its flagship processor – the socket AM4. More or less you have already seen the different AM4 motherboards from Asus, ASRock, Gigabyte and MSI.

AMD’s Ryzen processors is led by the AMD R7 1800X, their flagship processor, featuring 8 cores and 16 threads with a base clock speed of 3.0 GHz. (Note, the clock speeds shown above may or may not be the final clock speeds when these Ryzen processors are out). The AMD R7 1800X is said to be in par or will compete with Intel’s Core i7 6900K processor, designed for high end desktop platforms.

Meanwhile, the AMD R7 1700X and R5 1600X will compete against the Intel Core i7 7700K and Core i5 7600K. Both CPUs are the popular choice for enthusiasts and gamers nowadays. The entry level Ryzen processors are the R3 series, with the AMD R3 1100 at the bottom, featuring 4 cores and four threads. AMD doesn’t seem to have any plans on releasing dual core processors anymore. But the number of cores doesn’t always equal to better and faster performance.

You might also notice that there are Ryzen processors with the “PRO” moniker. These processors are more or less geared towards the business segment of the market.

According to reports, AMD plans to release these Ryzen processors on March 2. However, take note that these information came from an unverified source. Take it with a grain of salt.
The only thing I’m sure of is that AMD will be released by March 2017 and it’s going to be a huge come back for AMD’s processor. Intel is already taking steps to combat the new Ryzen processors (new SKUs and probably price drops).
