Just a few hours before the launch
A while ago well-known overclocker Der8auer created a tool to delid Skylake (and other) processors. Now, with the new AMD Ryzen chips, he managed to delid also this new processor without using any specific tools. We managed to get a couple of pictures of a delidded AMD 7 1700 CPU that is going to launched today.

The new flagship
AMD has announced their RX Vega series of GPUs, which is going to replace the R9 Fury lineup. This new series of GPUs was announced at AMD's Capsaicin and Cream Event during the GDC, alongside their new "V for Vega" logo designed by AMD's Raja Koduri himself. The R9 Fury series was launched in summer 2015 therefore it’s about time we see something new and fast from AMD.
Against an Intel Core i7-6800K CPU
A few days ago AMD has announced their new Ryzen 7 series processors including three new 8-core chips and they all come with a highly competitive price tag. So far we’ve only seen numbers in multi-threaded benchmarks, however thanks to a leak from PCEVA there are now more real-world benchmarks floating around.
Cheaper than Ryzen 3 chips
AMD B350 compatible with Crossfire
With Ryzen AMD has introduced six new chipsets and two of them are already available for pre-order and they are about to become available next week. As we already mentioned a few times the X370 chipset marks the high-end segment, while the B350 is the mid-range offer and with the A320 AMD is taking care of the entry-level market. On top of that there are also three additional chipset, which have been developed for small form factor (SFF) solutions and they go by the names X300, B300 and A300.
Goodbye AMD OverDrive!
Against an Intel Core i7-7700K CPU
AMD has finally announced their new Ryzen 7 series processors including three new 8-core chips and they all come with a highly competitive price tag. At the moment we have seen only numbers in multi-threaded benchmarks, however thanks to a leak from DinoPC on OCUK there are now more real-world benchmarks floating around.
On Ashes of the Singularity
According to latest rumors from Videocardz, new scores on two upcoming AMD RX 500 series graphics cards have appeared. Although Ashes of the Singularity isn’t a great benchmark to use for comparisons, there are plenty of scores in a similar range to the RX 580 and RX 560. The AMD RX 580 should compete against the NVIDIA GTX 1070, while the RX 560 might be fast as a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card.
More game optimisations
Overclocked to 5.2 GHz with LN2 cooling
Yesterday AMD has shown three new Ryzen 7 CPUs and already at launch day it looks like they’ve achieved a very nice result doing extreme overclocking. During the show, an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU has been pushed to 5.2GHz while running Cinebench R15 and it looks like those chips are capable of breaking records.
Three 8-core chips

Another set of benchmarks on AMD’s Ryzen CPUs has hit the surface. This time it looks like the octa-core AMD 7 1700X has been tested. According to the latest rumors, this model should features 8 core, 16 thread and a TDP of 95W. The Ryzen 7 1700X should belong to the "Black Edition" series with a street price of $389 US.
A few days ago AMD's Ryzen stock coolers have appeared online, showcasing their new cooler design. According to the latest reports from Videocardz, one of them might use Intel-style push-pins and the second one comes with a different retention kit. The coolers are capable of removing either 95 or 140 Watts of TDP depending on the model.
Good for workstations and NAS
According to a leak on ASUS’s official site, the upcoming AM4 Prime X370-Pro might be compatible with ECC memory at launch. Furthermore the default DDR4 memory speed is set to 2666 MHz. This new feature seems to be exclusive to AMD's Ryzen CPUs since A-series APUs and the Athlon chips are only compatible with non-ECC DDR4 2400 MHz by default.
Almost as fast as an Intel Core i7-6850K
Another set of benchmarks on AMD’s Ryzen CPUs has hit the surface. This time it looks like the hexa-core AMD 5 1600X has been tested. According to the latest rumors, this model should features 6 core, 12 thread and a TDP of 95W. The Ryzen 5 1600X should belong to the "Black Edition" series with a street price of $259 US.
AMD Ryzen launch is pretty close
AMD has announced they’re going to hold a new Webinar event that will take place on February 22nd. This event is going to be streamed through Adobe Connect Meeting Room, while the host is Eric Allen, Channel Marketing Specialist for AMD.
