AMD’s Ryzen CPUs reviews are rumoured to go live on February 28th

 
 
Today rumours have started spreading like wildfire regarding AMD’s Ryzen launch date, with many now suggesting that reviews for AMD’s latest CPU architecture will go live on February 28th.      
 

This date coincides with the start of GDC, which is a great platform for which AMD can launch their new CPU archtecture. It is also rumoured that AMD Ryzen and AM4 motherboards will go on sale starting on March 2nd, though some have suggested that some higher-end SKUs will be available before then. 

Below is a list of previously leaked AMD Ryzen SKUs, including most important specifications on each CPU. Right now many PC gamers are excited to see how these new CPUs stack up in gaming applications and many others are excited to see the wider picture and how Ryzen will stack up for professional use cases.
 
 
AMD Ryzen CPU Core Count Thread Count Base Freq  Boost Clock Speed TDP
R7 1800X 8 16 3.6GHz 4.0GHz 95+W
R7 1800 8 16  – 95W
R7 1700X 8 16 3.4GHz 3.8GHz 95+W
R7 1700 8 16 3.0GHz 3.7GHz 65W
R5 1600X 6 12 3.3GHz 3.7GHz 95+W
R5 1500 6 12 3.2GHz 3.4GHz  65W
R5 1400X 4 8 3.5GHz 3.9GHz 65W
R5 1300 4 8 3.3GHz 3.6GHz 65W
R3 1200X 4 4 3.4GHz 3.8GHz 65W
R3 1100 4 4 3.2GHz 3.5GHz 65W

 

 

One thing that also must be remembered is that all of AMD’s Ryzen SKUs are overclockable, giving enthusiasts a great opportunity to achieve great performance/$ out of their Ryzen CPUs, especially when using lower-end CPUs. 

If Ryzen’s rumoured pricing is true, Intel will likely be forced to reconsider the pricing of their Kaby Lake CPU lineup, as it seems like AMD will greatly upset the status-Quo when it comes to price/performance.   

During their Q4 earnings call, AMD has confirmed that their new Ryzen CPUs and AM4 series motherboards will be launching in early March, which means that we should be learning more about AMD’s new Ryzen series CPUs soon.
