Entire AMD Ryzen Processor Family Detailed With 65W And 95W TDP, Cores And Thread Counts
Separating fact from fiction prior to a product's release is no easy task. We bring that disclaimer up because there is yet another Ryzen leak making the rounds, one that details an extensive lineup of 17 processors. It is really a continuation of a previous leak supposedly outing AMD's top-to-bottom retail launch lineup, only now with individual part numbers and TDP ratings for every SKU.
The source of the leak, WCCFTech, doesn't exactly have a reputation for vetting its information and erring on the side of accuracy. Its approach is more akin to throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks. In this case, the site says the new details surrounding AMD's entire Ryzen CPU lineup "has been confirmed and detailed," though there is no mention of where the information is coming from. All we know is that it didn't come from AMD, at least not officially.
According to the leak, AMD will bundle an updated Wraith cooler codenamed HS81 with its Black Edition Ryzen processors that have a 95W TDP. They include the Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X, and Ryzen 5 1600X.
Curiously missing from the leaked chart is any information on clockspeeds. Well, the source site claims to have inside information on three of the SKUs. Starting at the top, AMD's Ryzen 7 1800X ($499) will feature 8 cores and 16 threads clocked at 3.6GHz (base) to 4GHz (Turbo) and have an Extended Frequency Range (XFR) of 4GHz+ depending on cooling. What XFR does is automatically overclock a processor past its Turbo clock if temps allow for it.
Next up is the Ryzen 7 1700X ($389), also with 8 cores, 16 threads, and 16MB of L3 cache. This one will come clocked at 3.4GHz to 3.8GHz, with an XFR clockspeed of 3.8GHz+.
Last is the Ryzen 7 1700 ($319). Like the other two, it boasts 8 cores, 16 threads, an 16MB of L3 cache, but slower clocks at 3GHz to 3.7GHz. This one doesn't support XFR.
If the spaghetti sticks to the wall and these ratings turn out to be true, AMD is likely to see its much sought after return to former glory among enthusiasts.
Update, 2/12/17 - 3:12PM EST - We also have some fresh paint, coloring one of the top three AMD Ryzen SKUs listed here. The octal-core Ryzen 7 1700X has also been outed today with more details on performance expectations and pricing as well.
