Presentation at the recital was made by Mr. Lisa Su, AMD President and CEO.

Ryzen is a next-generation CPU series that was designed from scratch instead of extending the core, and it took four years to develop.

We set the target to raise "Instruction-per-Clock (IPC: the number of executable instructions per clock)" of the conventional AMD CPU by "40%" when developing the next generation microarchitecture "Zen" . According to Sue, there seems to be a skeptical opinion about this goal. However, Ryzen realized "52%" higher than the goal.

Three models of 8 core 16 threads Ryzen 7 were announced at the recital. The first thing I showed up was the mainstream "Ryzen 7 1700X"

"Ryzen 7 1700X" has a base frequency of 3.4 GHz, boost frequency of 3.8 GHz, TDP (thermal design power consumption) of 95 W.

"Ryzen 7 1700 X" is Cinebench's multithreaded benchmark, which is 39% higher than Intel's "Core i7 6800 K" and 4% better than "Core i 7 6900 K".

Followed by the flagship model 'Ryzen 7 1800 X'. The base frequency is 3.6 GHz ... ....

Boost frequency is amazing 4.0 GHz.

The rendering test of the 3D model using CINEBENCH R15 was done at the recital. The left is "Intel 6900K" and the right is "Ryzen 7 1800X". In the test, you can see how "Ryzen 7 1800 X" performs rendering faster than "Intel 6900 K".

The performance of "Ryzen 7 1800X" is a single thread equivalent to "Intel 6900K", but 9% higher if multithreaded. Mr. Siu commented that "Ryzen 7 1800X is the world's fastest 8-core desktop processor".

In the end, "Ryzen 7 1700" with TDP of 65 W despite eight cores / 16 threads, the base frequency is 3.0 GHz and the boost frequency is 3.7 GHz. Performance is more than 46% better than Intel 's top model for main stream' Core i7 7700 K '.

When using Handbrake to encode 4K · 60 fps file into 1080p · fps file, "Core i7 7700K" took 71.8 seconds, "Ryzen 7 1700" finished in 61.8 seconds.

To announce the price you care about. AMD knows that many PC users do not want to pay "500 dollars" or more to the CPU in a prior investigation and reflected the result on price as well. "Ryzen 7 1800 X" is less than half the price of "Core i 7 6900 K" in the same performance band, 499 dollars (about 56,500 yen).

"Ryzen 7 1700X" is $ 399 (about 45,000 yen).

"Ryzen 7 1700" is $ 329 (about 32,000 yen).

All three models will be released simultaneously worldwide on March 2, 2017. The reservation reception is from February 22, 2017 (local date and time) in 2017.
