Leaks on AMD’s lower-end Ryzen CPUs have been disproven 

 

Leaks on AMD’s lower-end Ryzen CPUs have been disproven, with AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600X having much higher clock speeds than was what previously rumoured. 

This calls all leaks regarding the lower-end of AMD’s Ryzen lineup into question, with many SKUsbeing likely to have much higher clock speeds than were originally expected. 

Below is a list of all confirmed AMD Ryzen SKUs and their known clock speeds and specifications;

 

Processor Name Cores Threads Base Clock Speeds Boost Clock Speeds TDP Price UK
Ryzen 7 1800X 8 16 3.6GHz 4.0GHz 95W+ £489
Ryzen 7 1700X 8 16 3.4GHz 3.8GHz 95W £389
Ryzen 7 1700 8 16 3.0GHz 3.7GHz 65W £319
Ryzen 5 1600X 6 12 3.6GHz 4.0GHz

 

Below is a leak that was published yesterday by OCaholic, after AMD’s Ryzen launch, which lists AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600X with incorrect specifications, calling into question the validity of the remainder of the list. This list has since been published on several other tech websites, leading many to assume that this false information to be legitimate. 

This showcases how important it is to list “leaked” information as such and that any leaks should not be considered as “confirmed” by the press until the company in question makes and official announcement.

With the Ryzen 5 1600X coming with higher clock speeds (+300 base and +300 boost) than were previously leaked, which is a difference in specifications that can offer a huge boost in system performance. 

The important thing to take from this is that you should take all “leaks” with a grain of salt and not to put faith in them until the included information is officially confirmed.   

 

You can join the discussion on AMD’s Ryzen CPU leaks not matching up with AMD’s final retail products on the OC3D Forums.
