    AMD Ryzen 3 1200 and Ryzen 3 1300X Review 

    Highlights The Ryzen 3 CPUs both have four cores without multithreading The Ryzen 3 1300X has much higher headroom for overclocking Both models are priced at under Rs. 10,000 (before taxes)

    It has been a busy year for AMD, with multiple major launches across the CPU and GPU spaces. After being as good as dormant for several years, AMD took the high-performance and mainstream desktop PC markets by storm in the first half of 2017 with its Ryzen 7 (Review) and Ryzen 5 (Review) desktop processors. With twice the number of cores as Intel’s offerings, and by not restricting major features to only the highest-end models, AMD was able to pull the carpet right out from under Intel’s feet in a significant number of tests. As if that wasn’t enough, AMD also tossed its ultra-high-end Ryzen Threadripper CPUs with up to 16 cores into the mix just because it could. Enthusiasts haven’t had it this good, with this much choice, in a really long time.

    But there’s also the value-oriented end of the market, where people can’t allocate more than Rs. 10,000 of their budget to just a CPU. These are the chips that go into the majority of computers for ordinary, everyday people – at offices, in homes, in schools, and everywhere that people have to make do with the amount of performance they can afford. This is the target market for AMD’s Ryzen 3 processors, the most affordable of its new lineup.

    It sounds like the perfect space for AMD to use exactly the same formula in – offer buyers more cores and better multitasking without compromising on features or connectivity, and they should flock to you. Ryzen 3 processors do in fact have four cores where Intel’s Core i3 models have only two – but there’s a catch. AMD hasn’t yet shipped Ryzen chips with integrated graphics, so you have to spend more on a discrete graphics card. This is something that could raise the overall cost of a PC considerably, negating all the benefits of the CPU. We’re going to test both models, the Ryzen 3 1200 and the Ryzen 3 1300X, to see whether AMD can shake up the budget market and take the value crown back from Intel.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Review 

    Highlights The Ryzen 5 1600X is the most powerful of the Ryzen 5 family It has six cores with simultaneous multi-threading for 12 usable threads It lacks integrated graphics and does not come with a bundled cooler

    AMD’s Ryzen 7 launch earlier this year went off pretty much without a hitch. A lot was riding on it, considering that before this, AMD hadn’t managed to put out a CPU worth getting excited about in nearly a decade. The Ryzen 7 family targets relatively high-end buyers, and we were promised that the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 lines, with fewer cores and lower speeds, would follow in due course. So far, the company has kept all its promises, and so we now have with us a Ryzen 5 1600X CPU for review.

    This is the most powerful and highest priced of the four Ryzen 5 models currently available. It is carefully calibrated to take on Intel’s Core i5 CPUs, hitting them in their biggest weak spot. The target audience is mainstream users and enthusiasts who want it all, but who still see the merits of saving money where they can. We’re going to see how it stacks up against the mighty Ryzen 7 1800X which we tested at launch time, and whether Intel should be worried about losing its grip on this extremely important market segment.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600X specifications and features

    The Ryzen 5 lineup is based on the same Zen architecture as the Ryzen 7 models, and we have a complete guide to all the underlying technology and the AM4 platform for you to read. In short, Zen is an all-new design which targets power and efficiency, and pulls off a stunning 52 percent improvement in performance compared to previous offerings. AMD has been very clever with its design choices, particularly the use of a scalable interconnect called Infinity Fabric and modular core complexes which allow Ryzen models with different numbers of cores to be manufactured easily.

    All Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 chips have two core complexes, with four physical cores each capable of executing two threads at once. Ryzen 7 models have eight working cores, whereas Ryzen 5 models have either four or six, with the rest disabled. This is an industry-standard practice called binning, and it allows AMD to ship processors which might have minor defects in specific areas, or simply disable functioning logic to meet market demand at any given price point. The six-core Ryzen 5 1600X has three active cores per complex, and quad-core models have two each, rather than a single complex with four active cores.

    AMD Ryzen Pro CPUs With Hardware Encryption for Secure Corporate and Enterprise PCs Announced 

    Highlights The Ryzen 7 Pro, Ryzen 5 Pro and Ryzen 3 Pro will launch on August 29 All Ryzen Pro CPUs have hardware-level security co-processors Manageability and security enhancements begin on the production line

    AMD has announced that its Ryzen Pro CPUs for enterprise and corporate desktops will launch on August 29. There will be six models in all – two each under the Ryzen 7 Pro, Ryzen 5 Pro and Ryzen 3 Pro brands. AMD promises a number of features that distinguish Ryzen Pro CPUs from regular commercial Ryzen ones, and also claims to match or exceed Intel’s current-generation offerings in many ways.

    Ryzen Pro CPUs use the same basic architecture as their Ryzen counterparts, but are enhanced for reliability and security. Each CPU has a dedicated hardware co-processor on the same package, which the company says is superior to having a secure module on the motherboard, as it reduces opportunities for malware and attackers to get to the CPU. When powering up a computer, the co-processor holds the CPU cores in a suspended state until it can verify the integrity of the BIOS and other hardware. The normal boot process begins only after the hardware root of trust has authorised it.

    Ryzen Pro CPUS also have dedicated logic blocks for encryption and decryption, reducing the workload on the CPU cores. Data can be encrypted using AES as it is sent form the CPU to system memory, and decrypted as it comes in the opposite direction. This happens on-the-fly and is completely transparent to the OS and applications, meaning that even legacy software can be run in a more secure environment.

    AMD’s OEM partners can design custom systems that take advantage of hardware-based security for specific applications. As an example, future CPUs with integrated graphics will feature DRM support implemented through this secure enclave. AMD says that security is even built into the manufacturing process, with additional checks and tests performed on CPUs right as they leave the production line, to ensure their integrity.

    AMD will commit to making Ryzen Pro CPUs available for two years, and that the platform will remain unchanged for at least 18 months in order to simplify and reduce costs associated with large-scale deployment and management. Ryzen Pro will work with the DASH standard for bulk remote manageability, which is cross-platform and non-proprietary. Finally, Ryzen Pro CPUs will have a three-year warranty, compared to one-year for consumer Ryzen CPUs.

    The company stresses that while Intel restricts manageability features to its more expensive Core i5 and i7 CPUs, it will make the full range of features available across its entire stack. The idea is that users who don’t need much raw compute power shouldn’t have to sacrifice security, and companies shouldn’t have to spend more on capabilities their workers don’t need. Ryzen 7 Pro is aimed at heavy multitaskers and content creators who work with 3D graphics, software development and scientific data. Ryzen 5 Pro targets “advanced productivity” and remote collaboration, while Ryzen 3 Pro is suitable for those who work with documents, surf the Web, and use common productivity applications.

    The Ryzen Pro 7, Pro 5 and Pro 3 products were designed specifically to take on equivalent Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 models. The Ryzen 7 Pro 1700X and 1700 both have 8/16 cores and threads, while the Ryzen 5 1600 and 1500 mirror their Ryzen counterparts with 6/12 and 4/8 cores and threads respectively. The Ryzen 3 Pro 1300 and 1200 come in with four cores and four threads each.

    This is also the first look we’ve had at what AMD has planned for its consumer Ryzen 3 lineup, which is yet to be released. These models lack multi-threading, but could still pose a significant threat to Intel’s dual-core Core i3 models. However, all current Ryzen CPUs lack integrated graphics, which means that Intel still has a major cost and complexity advantage for users who don’t need a discrete graphics card.

    Along with all the Pro-specific features, these new CPUs will benefit from all the same features as the consumer Ryzen lineup, including fine-grained frequency control, advanced sensors embedded within the fabric to control heat and power consumption, and the 52 percent generational leap that the Zen architecture represents over previous AMD products.

    Further details regarding specific OEM partners and customised solutions will be announced on August 29 at the formal Ryzen Pro launch.

    AMD Ryzen 3 Speeds, Launch Date Announced; Ryzen Threadripper Prices and Specs Confirmed 

    Highlights There are two AMD Ryzen 3 desktop CPU models, both 4 cores, 4 threads The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 16 cores and 32 threads Ryzen 3 will go on sale July 27; Threadripper will launch in early August

    AMD has taken the wraps off its highly anticipated Ryzen 3 and Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The budget-focused Ryzen 3 line will target entry-level users, while the enthusiast-class Ryzen Threadripper is designed for those who want monstrous amounts of processing power in a desktop. AMD is hoping to gain an edge over Intel’s offerings in the same space by offering higher performance and lower prices.

    There are two Ryzen 3 models, which join the mid-range and high-end Ryzen 5 (Review) and Ryzen 7 (Review) families, completing AMD’s new desktop platform. The Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 both have four cores but are not multi-threaded unlike all other CPUs announced so far. However, AMD will be counting on four physical cores as an advantage over Intel’s Core i3 range which are all dual-core and use Hyper-Threading to deliver four threads. The Ryzen 3 1300X has a base speed of 3.5GHz and can boost up to 3.7GHz, while the Ryzen 3 1200 is clocked at 3.1GHz and 3.4GHz respectively. AMD has not announced other specifications such as cache sizes, but the names and speeds are consistent with the Ryzen 3 Pro lineup announced late last month, so we can expect 65W TDPs.

    Pricing for the low-end chips has not been announced either, but with the most affordable Ryzen 5 priced at Rs. 12,199 in India, we can expect AMD to target the sub-Rs. 10,000 market. The biggest challenge for AMD will be that Ryzen 3 CPUs lack integrated graphics, which will drive the cost up for anyone choosing one of these CPUs over an Intel Core i3. These two CPUs are set to become available globally on July 27.

    At the opposite end of the market, AMD has confirmed that its 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU will cost $999 (approximately Rs. 64,380), and there will also be a 12-core, 24-thread model called the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, priced at $799 (approximately Rs. 51,485). The flagship 1950X model will run at a base speed of 3.4GHz and can boost up to 4.0GHz, while the slightly-cut-down 1920X can manage a higher 3.5GHz base speed but has the same boost ceiling.

    Threadripper CPUs have Intel’s new Core X-series processors, including the high-end Core i9 models, in their sights. With its announcement, AMD showed off demos of a $799 Ryzen Threadripper 1920X defeating the $999 10-core, 20-thread Intel Core i9-7900X by a comfortable margin in the Cinebench R15 benchmark which can take full advantage of multiple threads.

    The Ryzen Threadripper platform brings workstation-class features to consumer desktops, such as 64 lanes of PCIe connectivity for up to four high-end graphics cards and multiple I/O devices running at full speed. All CPUs are also unlocked for overclocking.

    While consumers will be able to buy boxed Threadripper CPUs, Dell will be the exclusive launch partner for pre-built PCs. Preorders for the Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition will open on July 27 in the US. More details about the Threadripper launch and AMD’s upcoming Radeon Vega graphics cards will be announced at the annual SIGGRAPH conference which begins on July 30.

    AMD Announces India Prices and Availability of Low-Cost Ryzen 3 CPUs 

    Highlights Ryzen 3 1300X, Ryzen 3 1200 both cost under Rs. 10,000 excluding GST AMD is offering more cores than Intel, but without integrated graphics Both CPUs will go on sale around the world today

    AMD has launched its low-cost Ryzen 3 CPU series, rounding out the mainstream desktop Ryzen lineup for 2017. There are two models, the Ryzen 3 1300X and the Ryzen 3 1200, both of which will be available around the world starting from today. The Ryzen 3 1300X is priced at Rs. 8,899 in India while the Ryzen 3 1200 will cost Rs. 7,599. GST of 18 percent is applicable, which pushes these figures up to roughly Rs. 10,500 and Rs. 8,966 respectively, though street prices can still vary. 

    The company hopes to use low prices to challenge Intel’s Core i3 series, which dominates the budget PC space. Both Ryzen 3 models have four physical CPU cores whereas Core i3 CPUs have two cores plus HyperThreading to simulate two more. The formula of more cores at lower prices has worked well for AMD at the high end and mid-range with its Ryzen 7 (Review) and Ryzen 5 (Review) lines respectively, where performance differences can be significant. AMD has called this an intentional disruption of the cores-per-dollar equation. However, Ryzen CPUs lack integrated graphics which could still leave the balance in Intel’s favour when total system cost is calculated for budget desktops. 

    Consistent with the company’s initial Ryzen 3 announcement, the Ryzen 3 1300X has a base speed of 3.5GHz and a boost speed of 3.7GHz, but can use AMD’s XFR technology to go all the way up to 3.9GHz if the thermal envelope allows it. The Ryzen 3 1200X runs at 3.1GHz but can boost itself up to 3.4GHz on demand. The new CPUs are based on the same Zen architecture as their more expensive siblings and use the same basic design, with two cores enabled per core complex and all the same features. Both have 64W TDPs and ship with AMD’s compact Wraith Stealth cooler. Both are also multiplier unlocked and overclockable. Ryzen 3 CPUs will work with the same AM4 platform motherboards as the rest of the mainstream Ryzen lineup. 

    AMD will also sell eight new A-series and three new Athlon CPUs based on the Bristol Ridge architecture, targeting extremely low-cost PCs. Some of these have already been seen in OEM systems and select markets such as China. Finally, the company announced retail availability of its popular Wraith Max cooler for high-end CPUs, which has so far only been shipped to OEM partners and used for demonstrations. The Wraith Max has an RGB LED ring around its fan, which will work with lighting control systems from all major hardware manufacturers including Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Biostar and ASRock. The maximum retail price for the Wraith Max in India is Rs. 3,799 plus 18 percent GST (effectively Rs. 4,483).

    Later this year, AMD will ship its high-end enthusiast-class 12-core and 16-core Ryzen Threadripper CPUs and Vega graphics architecture. Mobile Ryzen CPUs with integrated graphics aimed at laptops and ultraportable devices are also expected to be announced shortly.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Enthusiasts CPUs Go on Sale in India Starting at Rs. 55,999 

    Highlights The Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and 1950X are available already Pricing starts at Rs. 55,999 exclusing GST Threadripper CPUs compete with Intel’s Core X-series

    AMD has already announced pretty much everything there is to know about its high-performance Threadripper CPU line, and now the products have finally been launched. The 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1920X is priced at Rs. 55,999 excluding GST in India, while the flagship 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X will cost Rs. 69,999 excluding GST. The 8-core, 16-thread Threadripper 1900X which was added to the lineup after the former two, will become available on August 31 and its India price will be announced at that time.

    Indian retailers PrimeABGB and MD Computers are already listing the two high-end CPUs, with identical MRPs of Rs. 65,488 for the Threadripper 1920X and Rs. 82,008 for the Threadripper 1950X at both stores. Judging by its US dollar price of $549, our calculations estimate that the Threadripper 1900X should come in at around Rs. 38,499 before GST and Rs. 45,500 MRP.

    Threadripper is AMD’s answer to Intel’s Core-X series, more commonly known as Extreme Edition processors. AMD is hoping to upset Intel’s dominance by offering more cores per dollar, just like it has done with its Ryzen 7 (Review), Ryzen 5 (Review) and Ryzen 3 CPUs so far this year. The launch of the Threadripper models completes AMD’s top-to-bottom desktop CPU lineup – though more variants within each family could still be launched.

    AMD is aiming Threadripper at content creators, gamers and overclockers who want the best performance without spending too much. These CPUs are physically much larger than mainstream ones, and use a different socket called TR4. They support quad-channel DDR4 RAM and feature 64 lanes of PCIe bandwidth for high-speed components such as graphics cards and SSD arrays. They have a much higher 180W TDP rating and need specific coolers. Because the Zen architecture is common between Ryzen product families, Threadripper CPUs are based on the same Infinity Fabric interconnect between internal clusters called Core Complexes, and have the same benefits including XFR which boosts speed beyond the rated limits when thermal conditions allow it, and SenseMI which adjusts operating parameters dynamically using hundreds of embedded sensors.

    Threadripper-compatible X399 motherboards are available from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock. They will also show up in pre-built systems from a number of boutique builders. Dell is the exclusive big-brand OEM at launch time, and has already announced several Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition models.

    It has been a busy year for AMD, which hasn’t had a competitive CPU lineup in nearly a decade. The company has so far launched the entire Ryzen desktop CPU line as well as Ryzen Pro variants for businesses, Epyc server processors, and the Radeon RX 500 (Review) series of graphics cards. High-end Radeon RX Vega graphics cards are set to launch over the next few weeks, and Ryzen Mobile and APU products with integrated graphics are in the pipeline as well.

    AMD Ryzen Pro Processors for Business PCs Launched 

    Highlights The Ryzen Pro desktop processor is an 8 core and 16 thread CPU Much of the AMD business share is in consumer PC segment AMD is “not happy” with its current share in India

    Chipmaker AMD has unveiled a new line of microprocessor chips called ‘Ryzen Pro’ for commercial desktop workstations to be available in India and other countries by end of this year.

    At the global launch of Ryzen Pro yesterday, leading PC makers HP, Dell and Lenovo introduced new high-end workstations using Ryzen Pro to meet the demand of today’s toughest computing-tasks.

    HP’s Elitedesk 705 G3, Dell’s Optiplex 5055 and Lenovo’s ThinkCentre M715/Thinkpad A 275 and A475 are slated for global launch later this month.

    “This is an important year for AMD. The new Ryzen Pro processors are for commercial usage. It is powerful, secure and reliable. It has incredible level of performance,” AMD senior vice president Jim Anderson said.

    The Ryzen Pro desktop processor is an 8 core and 16 thread CPU and much faster than the rival Intel’s ‘Core i7’ which is of 4 core and 8 thread, he added.

    So far this year, the company has launched high-performance chips Ryzen 3, 5 and 7 for consumer PCs, a chip named Epyc for corporate servers and also a revamped graphics chip called Vega.

    Much of the AMD business share is in consumer PC segment and with Ryzen Pro it aims to gain more share from commercial side, Anderson said.

    Talking about growth prospects in India for its products, he said the company is “not happy” with its current share but “I think the market like India is a perfect opportunity for this kind of product.”

    The company, which has two R&D centres in India, is taking measures to improve brand awareness and trying to overhaul the marketing strategy to push its products, he said.

    The Ryzen line of processors launched for consumer PCs is taking share of the top competitors and Ryzen Pro will help them grab more share in the commercial segment in India, he added.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X CPU Launched at $549 

    Highlights The Threadripper 1900X has 8 cores and 16 threads It will use the same TR4 socket as the rest of the Threadripper CPUs It’s priced at $549

    Back in July, AMD confirmed the existence of a third member of the Ryzen Threadripper processor lineup and now, the company officially launched the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X processor at a price of $549 (roughly Rs. 37,330). This is currently the least expensive CPU in the Threadripper lineup, which makes it an interesting choice for enthusiasts shopping on a budget.

    The Ryzen Threadripper 1900X features 8 cores and 16 threads, joining the 12-core and 16-core Threadripper 1920X and 1950X. It has a base clock speed of 3.8GHz, a boost clock of 4.0GHz and an XFR limit of 4.2GHz. The CPU uses the same X399 platform as its bigger siblings, which sets it apart from the octa-core Ryzen 7 family because it will be able to work with the full complement of 64 PCIe lanes, and has a 180W thermal ceiling for overclocking.

    AMD is aiming Threadripper at content creators, gamers and overclockers who want the best performance without spending too much. These CPUs are physically much larger than mainstream ones, and use a different socket called TR4 and are certified VR-ready. They support quad-channel DDR4 RAM and feature 64 lanes of PCIe bandwidth for high-speed components such as graphics cards and SSD arrays.

    Because the Zen architecture is common between Ryzen product families, Threadripper CPUs are based on the same Infinity Fabric interconnect between internal clusters called Core Complexes, and have the same benefits including XFR which boosts speed beyond the rated limits when thermal conditions allow it, and SenseMI which adjusts operating parameters dynamically using hundreds of embedded sensors.
