It looks like 2017 is going to be AMD’s year. The American hardware manufacturer managed to create three of the best processors ever built. We are talking about AMD’s latest Ryzen chipset offering. The entire tech community was buzzing with rumors and speculations about Ryzen’s performance, but now AMD has cleared it once and for all. During the launch day, AMD Ryzen 7 1800X managed to break the multi-threaded world record.

The multi-threaded chip has been put under the Cinebench R15 test and it came out with a score of 2499. This score broke the previous Cinebench world record which was 2410 points. The group of overclockers which performed this test have cooled the chip with LN2. Additionally, the chip’s voltage has been boosted to 1.875V. This is how AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X managed to overclock at 5.2GHz on all of its 8 cores. Worth mentioning is that the LN2 cooling held the chip’s temperature at -200c.
AMD Ryzen 71800X Destroys Intel’s Core i7 6900K
This chip will be the fastest one in the “X” lineup. It will ship with 16 threads and 9 cores which will have a base clocking speed of 3.6GHz and an impressive boost clock of 4.0GHz. This will put AMD Ryzen 7 1800X at the same level Intel’s Core i7 6900K is. AMD’s chip will also feature a L2 (4MB) and L3 (16MB) cache alongside a TDP of 95W. The best thing about this chip is that it can be acquired for the rather cheap price of $449. This is really impressive when compared with Intel’s 6900K which costs over $1,000.
