Pricing of Entire AMD Ryzen Lineup Revealed

AMD Wednesday launched its much awaited Ryzen performance desktop processor lineup with three top 8-core models, the Ryzen 7-1800X priced at USD $499, followed by the Ryzen 7-1700X at $399, and the Ryzen 7-1700 at $329. You're probably curious as to the rest of the lineup, especially the cheaper six-core SMT-enabled parts. Here they are. The Ryzen 5-1600X is designed to lure buyers away from the Core i5-7600K, and probably even the i7-7700K. This six-core chip with SMT, which enables 12 logical CPUs for your software to deal with, is endowed with the full 16 MB of L3 cache, and is not only unlocked, but also features the XFR (extended frequency range) technology. It's clocked at 3.60 GHz, with 4.00 GHz TurboCore. The Ryzen 5-1600X is priced at $259, and is sure to draw some attention.

Next up, is the Ryzen 5-1500. This 6-core/12-thread chip lacks XFR, but is still unlocked, ticks at 3.20 GHz with 3.50 GHz TurboCore, and features the full 16 MB of L3 cache. At $229, and with a TDP of 65W, this chip is sure to disrupt Intel's "Kaby Lake" Core i5 lineup. The quad-core Ryzen lineup is built by disabling one of the two 4-core CCX complexes on the 14 nm "Summit Ridge" silicon, and feature 8 MB of L3 cache. The lineup is led by the $199 Ryzen 5-1400X. This quad-core chip ticks at 3.50 GHz, with 3.90 GHz TurboCore, and features XFR and SMT, which enables 8 threads. Next up, is the quad-core Ryzen 5-1300, priced at $175, with the Core i3-7350K in its crosshairs, clocked at 3.20 GHz and 3.50 GHz Turbo. At the bottom of the pile is the Ryzen 3 quad-core lineup, which lack SMT. The Ryzen 3-1200X is priced at just $149, but you get 3.40 GHz clocks with 3.80 GHz Turbo, and XFR, and 8 MB of L3 cache. The cheapest Ryzen chip is just $129. The Ryzen 3-1200 lacks XFR, but gives you 3.20 GHz clocks with 3.50 GHz Turbo.

I think the number of skus will hurt amd

medi01No 4 or 6 core that has boost frequency that is higher than 8 core 1800x. =(
but all support overclocking if you buy the proper chipset

But nobody is expecting miracles from it. (with LN2 they only got to 5.1Ghz)

Even 4.2-4.3 will be a "oh, great" overclock.

figurettiHi @btarunr , the clockspeed of the 1600X is not 3.3/3.7
That's cleared then, the list is BS. ;)

From what i've been reading, not exactly... the prices are on spot, but the clock speeds are not defined yet... for example, one rumor says the target speed for the 1400X is 4.0/4.2 Ghz... for me that's really ok to compete against the Kaby Lake

All chips support OC & XFR... the "X" in some SKU's are binned CPU's...

Sorry for my english... is Google Translate assisted lol... >.<

Or someone stuffed up and wrote 1600X instead of 1800X on that slide.

4.3 on a 8 core chips is amazing.

These are not quad core sandys here. Nobody should expect 8 core ryzen to OC like four core sandy did.

Look at intel, their 8 core and 6 core parts rarely go past 4.3-4.4 reliably, and even then they need ridiculous cooling to do so. Why people expect AMD to somehow beat physics is beyond me.

People compare TDP numbers expecting wide voltage headroom hoping to run 95W 8 core zen OCed at 150W levels and achieve better clocks than intel ... however, they are assuming similar allowed max temps and similar overvolt/overclock ramp

I created this little spreadsheet to compare some of the SKUs. You can select a CPU in cell B2. Maybe someone might find it useful.

etayoriusI would be interested in either a 6 core or a 8 core with no extra threads. I mostly do Gaming and it seems most games will not use more than 6 threads at the moment, and this will be a thing for quite a while.
Most games wont use more than 1 thread. Some use 2. many rarely use over 2 thread :D
