King is dead, long live new KING!

If you have been living under the rock for the past 6 months, here is a news flash for you. AMD is releasing new CPU series, called „Ryzen“!

New chip will be smaller and also have twice the L2 cache size as Intel's comparable CPU – which should offer a significant advantage in terms of performance. AMD is relying heavily on the new Ryzen architecture to help turn the company’s fortunes around, new processor from AMD due out in a few weeks could provide Intel with its first real competition in years.

"We deeply appreciate the ways in which our partners and customers came together to build a high-performance ecosystem for Ryzen," said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD. "With an anticipated 82 new motherboards from ODMs worldwide, Ryzen-based designs from top global PC OEMs expected soon, and boutique SIs and OEMs showing extreme-performance PC designs, this will be a launch like no other. Unprecedented pre-order support from etailers globally shows that our ecosystem and partners are fully behind AMD and our commitment to return innovation and competition to high-performance PCs."

“ The desktop market is hungry for change as new and demanding use cases like VR, 3D modeling, and eSports require intense amounts of processing and graphics power. We designed Ryzen processors to excel in these areas and to bring much-needed innovation and competition back to desktop PCs.“, commented Jim Anderson .

For years AMD has driven innovation in high –performance computing, and visualization technologies and generating images that appears to surround the gaming users. AMD always there to improve technology as well as work force places. AMD always has been an inspirational today’s world.

Meanwhile, it's unlikely that Intel will rest on its laurels in the face of new signs of life from AMD. The company is rumored to be working on changes to its own product line to better compete with the new Ryzen chips. That includes new i5 and i7 Kaby Lake chips that are faster than the versions Intel launched just a few months ago. The new chips may also include hyper-threading, a feature Intel recently added to some of its newer Pentium processors.

Below are some released details about it :

It's clear that in the price war, even if we see prices close to these figures, which should be taken with a generous pinch of salt, AMD is heading towards a massive victory. While Intel still seems to hold a slight lead in clock-for-clock performance, this simply won't matter when people reach for their wallets given that AMD seems to be able to offer similar performance for a drastically reduced price tag.
