AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Slashed to $319 on Newegg

US retailer Newegg put AMD's flagship socket AM4 processor, the Ryzen 7 1800X, at a flash-sale price of USD $319.99, a staggering 36% discount from its list price of $499. The retailer has the second-fastest Ryzen 7 1700X priced at $279.99 (list price $399). The limited-period prices make the two chips extremely competitive against the Core i7-8700K, which has spotty availability, and is being sold above its list price, at $414 (MSRP: $359), while the Core i5-8700 (non-K) goes for $359 (MSRP: $303), and the Core i5-8600K (out of stock) at $299 (MSRP: $257). Prices of Intel's 8th generation Core "Coffee Lake" processors are inflated across the board, on account on supply issues, and its performance leadership over AMD Ryzen series.

ASUS BIOS Change-log Reveals New Ryzen Processors Incoming

ASUS recently released BIOS updates for its socket AM4 motherboards based on AMD X370 and B350 chipsets, which implement AGESA 1.0.0.7, which as you'll recall, paves the way for implementing support for upcoming processors, based on AMD's Vega-infused "Raven Ridge" APU silicon, and the 12 nm refreshed Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" silicon due for February 2018. ASUS published, and later withdrew the BIOS updates as the media got whiff of them.

The next parts for AMD's mainstream-desktop socket AM4 platform will be Ryzen "Raven Ridge" APUs, which let you finally use the HDMI and DisplayPorts on your motherboards. "Raven Ridge" combines a quad-core "Zen" CPU with a 640-stream processor integrated graphics based on the "Vega" graphics architecture. The "late-2017 or early-2018" time-line for these chips still appears to stand. RedGamingTech suggests that AMD's answer to Intel "Coffee Lake" processors, the 12 nm Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" processors, could be out by as early (or late) as February 2018. These chips could be previewed or teased at the company's events held on the sidelines of the 2018 International CES.

Jonsbo Intros the PC-701 Top-flow CPU Cooler

Jonsbo today introduced the PC-701 top-flow CPU cooler. The cooler features a "C-type" aluminium fin-stack which propagates along the plane of the motherboard. Heat drawn by five 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat-pipes making direct contact with the CPU at the base, is conveyed along five points of the aluminium fin-stack, which is then ventilated by a 120 mm fan. Measuring 120 mm x 125 mm x 75 mm (WxDxH), and weighing 570 g, the cooler is designed to handle thermal loads of up to 135W.

The included 120 mm fan is the same one Jonsbo bundles with the CR-601 cooler. Taking in 4-pin PWM input, it spins between 500 to 1,500 RPM, with a noise output ranging between 19.5 to 29.2 dBA. This fan features RGB LED lighting projected onto its impeller. The cooler supports most mainstream-desktop CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA115x, and LGA775. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilentiumPC Intros Navis Pro Series AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

SilentiumPC today introduced the Navis Pro series all-in-one, closed-loop liquid CPU coolers. These coolers are available in two models based on radiator size, the Navis Pro 120 (120 mm x 120 mm radiator), and the Navis Pro 240 (240 mm x 120 mm radiator). What sets this cooler apart is a unique 9-pole pump motor that keeps the noise output of the pump-block under 15 dBA at all times.

The included Sigma HPE fans come with fluid-dynamic bearings for high endurance, and spin between 800 to 2,300 RPM, pushing up to 74 CFM of air, with a noise output as low as 22 dBA, each. The pump-block has a rated MTBF of 80,000 hours. Most common CPU socket types are supported, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), and LGA115x. Backed by 5-year warranties, the Navis Pro 120 is priced at 55€, and the Navis Pro 240 at 75€.

Jonsbo Intros CR-601 RGB CPU Cooler

Jonsbo introduced the CR-601 RGB tower-type CPU cooler. Featuring a slim, yet conventional tower-type design, the cooler is characterized by 256-color RGB LED illumination on both its included fan, and the fin-stack cover, through a diffuser. Its design involves an aluminium base, from which four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes pass, making direct contact with the CPU, conveying heat through the aluminium fin-stack, which is then ventilated by a 120 mm fan.

The included fan features an air-flow boosting impeller design, which lets its designers keep fan-speeds lower to achieve the desired air-flow. Taking in 4-pin PWM input, the fan spins between 800 and 1,500 RPM, with its noise output proportionately ranging between 17.5 and 31.2 dBA. The cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 130W. It supports most mainstream-desktop CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA115x, and LGA775. The company didn't reveal pricing.

ID-Cooling Intros SE-214RGB CPU Cooler

ID-Cooling today introduced the SE-214RGB, a variant of the SE-214C launched last year. The new model features an all-black aluminium fin-stack, and an RGB multi-color LED-illuminated fan. It also bears striking resemblance to the recently launched Ben Nevis Advanced RGB, which reveals that ID-Cooling is Alpenföhn's OEM for the cooler. The cooler retains the design of the original SE-214C, in featuring an offset aluminium fin-stack to which heat drawn from the CPU by four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes making direct contact, us fed along various points, while a spinal rod that passes through the center of the stack adds stability.

The off-center fin-stack design enhanced clearance near the memory area of your motherboard. The included 130 mm fan features four RGB diodes embedded into the inner walls of the frame, and a white impeller, which acts as a diffuser. It takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 500 to 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 69.5 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 14.2 to 30.6 dBA. Measuring 130 mm x 74 mm x 159 mm (WxDxH), the cooler weighs about 680 g (including fan). It supports most modern CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), and LGA115x. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Akasa Intros Venom R10 and Venom R20 AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

Akasa today rolled out additions to its coveted Venom line of premium CPU coolers, with the new Venom R10 and Venom R20 all-in-one (AIO) closed-loop liquid CPU coolers. The two are differentiated with radiator sizes, with the R10 featuring a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator, and the R20 a 240 mm x 120 mm. The two are characterized by a pump-block with a groovy RGB multi-color LED studded ornament, which takes input from a standard 4-pin RGB header, and can be controlled with ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light RGB software.

The ornament features multiple diodes that put light out through a diffuser, and the Akasa Venom logo. The coolers don't include 120 mm fans, you add your own. The pump-block puts out up to two 4-pin PWM fan inputs. The coolers support most common CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), and LGA115x. The company didn't reveal pricing.

AMD "Raven Ridge" Silicon Detailed

The "Zen" CPU micro-architecture seems to be turning AMD's fortunes as it reported its first black quarter in years. The 14 nm "Zeppelin" or "Summit Ridge" die is at the heart of this change. This 8-core CPU die is implemented on everything from performance mobile packages, to single-die mainstream-desktop socket AM4 under the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 7-series, 2-die high-end desktop (HEDT) multi-chip modules under Ryzen Threadripper, and the 4-die enterprise multi-chip modules under the EPYC brand. The next logical step for AMD with its new "Zen" CPU IP was to fuse it with the "Vega" graphics architecture, and give its APU lineup a much needed overhaul. At the heart of this move is the new 14 nm "Raven Ridge" silicon.

While "Summit Ridge" is the combination of two "Zen" CCX (quad-core CPU complex) units making up an 8-core CPU die that lacks integrated graphics, the "Raven Ridge" silicon combines one "Zen" CCX with an integrated graphics core based on the "Vega" architecture. AMD's new Infinity Fabric interconnect ferries data between the CCX and the iGPU, and not an internal PCIe link. The CCX houses four "Zen" CPU cores with 64 KB of L1I cache, 32 KB of L1D cache, 512 KB of dedicated L2 cache, and 4 MB of L3 cache shared between the four cores.
