AMD Ryzen Optimization Process Largely Completed

Watch: Ryzen 5 1600 vs Core i7 7800X in 30 game battle

Then six months later came the announcement of three Ryzen 7 series CPUs (1700 / 1700X / 1800X) in March, followed by two of the Ryzen 5 series CPUs in April (1500X / 1600X) then May (1400 / 1600). At 3.9-GHz, the 1300X stepped up to 76.6 fps and overcame both the Core i3-7100 (71.4 fps) and Intel Core i3-7300 (74.9fps), though the base clock was a few frames less than both of Intel's offerings.

Ever since it came out with its new Zen core architecture late a year ago, AMD has been aggressively pushing its Ryzen line of processors to nearly every computing market its eternal rival Intel has a foothold. The 1300X is unlocked, running at a base clock of 3.5GHZ, and a boost of 3.7GHz.

Sunnyvale, Calif. -based AMD said the new Ryzen 3 1300X will sell for $129. Both have access to the same dual-channel DDR4-2,666 memory, have a full complement of PCIe lanes, and have a restrained 65W TDP. The Ryzen 5 1500X was king at 92.2 fps.

The GTX 1080 and Ryzen 3 ran The Witcher 3 (1920 x 1080, ultra settings) at 85.4 frames per second (85.5 fps at 3.9 GHz). Both ship with the Wraith Stealth heatsink in the box. "We believe datacenters will be a very high growth area over the next couple of years".

The four-core, four thread part is meant to compete against Intel's Core i3 and the Pentium G4560.

Ryzen proved particularly popular with gamers, while "demand for Radeon RX GPUs was strong in the quarter, driven by gaming and cryptocurrency mining", CEO Dr Lisa Su said in an earnings call (transcribed by Seeking Alpha).

Jim stated that the Ryzen 3 is the dominant addition to their Ryzen desktop processors. Ryzen 3 will likely be faster when all cores are being stressed, but Intel is going to be quicker on light CPU loads. "Join us as we dive into gaming and productivity workloads with these new chips to see whether they can unseat Intel's evergreen Core i3s". It is, however, a discerning factor that the Ryzen CPUs don't have integrated graphics which again makes the users go for the Intel counterpart when the total system cost for the budget rig that they are building is concerned. To mount this Wraith Spire unit, you remove the two plastic retention plates of the standard AM4 mounting and use the four spring loaded thumb screws to secure the Spire onto the AM4 motherboard mounting plate.

The logical supporting chipset for Ryzen 3 is the B350, and a whole gaggle of boards are available for under £100, largely consistent with the Intel B250 chipset that optimally supports Core i3. Let's now see which is better for your kind of applications.
