Here's some silly claims related to AMD's Ryzen to keep you guys busy until the SB starts:
I don't believe it for a minute, FIVE? 8C/16T SKU's, with clock speeds that only differ by 600Mhz yet compete with completely different class wise Intel SKU's? Does this make any sense to anyone? Unless in addition to those 600Mhz there's also some other differences, such as instruction set support and big cache differences.In any event, here is a look at the alleged top-end R7 processors:
R7 1800X: 8 cores, 16 threads
R7 Pro 1800: 8 cores, 16 threads
R7 1700X: 8 cores, 16 threads
R7 1700: 8 cores, 16 threads
R7 Pro 1700: 8 cores, 16 threads
According to the leak, these processors will range in clockspeed from 3GHz to 3.6GHz, or thereabouts. The Core R7 1800X is said to compete with Intel's Core i7-6900K. The R7 1700X will be competitive with Intel's Core i7-7700K and 6800K processors, while the R7 1700 is listed as being comparable to Intel's Core i7-7700.
Moving on, here's a look at what's supposed to be the R5 lineup:
R5 1600X: 6 cores, 12 threads
R5 Pro 1600: 6 cores, 12 threads
R5 1500: 6 cores, 12 threads
R5 Pro 1500: 6 cores, 12 threads
R5 1400X: 4 cores, 8 threads
R5 Pro 1400: 4 cores, 8 threads
R5 1300: 4 cores, 8 threads
R5 Pro 1300: 4 cores, 8 threads
The R5 family will include both six-core and quad-core processors, both clocked at around 3.2GHz to 3.5GHz. Intel's Core i5-6700K, Core i5-7600, and Core i5-7500 will be the competitive models to the top three R5 Ryzen CPUs, while the R5 1400X will compete with Intel's Core i5-7400.
Finally, there is the R3 line, all of which are quad-core chips. Here is a look at what's being claimed:
R3 1200X: 4 cores, 4 threads
R3 Pro 1200: 4 cores, 4 threads
R3 1100: 4 cores, 4 threads
R3 Pro 1100: 4 cores, 4 threads
These chips will be clocked from around 3.1GHz to 3.4GHz. The leaked list didn't indicate which Intel processors they will compete against, though in every case, it will largely depend on price. Unfortunately this list did not include any MSRPs.
I hope this isn't true, the R7 1700 is supposedly an 8C/16T part and it's "competitive" with the i7 7700 non-K?!? Not good at all.
BTW, SB prediction, Pats win by at least 10, hopefully with a score of 30 to 16 because then I would win the 2 grand for having the right numbers at the final in my pool.
