AMD's Ryzen launches March 2, outperforming Intel's Core i7 at a fraction of the pric

Ryzen is here. AMD said Wednesday that it plans a “hard launch” of its first three Ryzen processors on March 2. The highly anticipated chips promise to outperform high-end parts from Intel and undercut their prices by as much as 54 percent.

AMD executives confidently unveiled the first three desktop chips to attack Intel’s Core i7, supported by several top-tier motherboard vendors and boutique system builders. In many cases, executives said, AMD will offer more for less, as early Ryzen benchmarks prove. The top-tier Ryzen 7 1800X will cost less than half of what Intel’s thousand-dollar Core i7-6900K chip does—and outperform it, too. You can preorder Ryzen chips and systems from 180 retailers and system integrators today.

Like Intel, AMD’s Ryzen offerings consist of three new chip families: the premium Ryzen 7, the midrange Ryzen 5, and the cheapest Ryzen 3. AMD is rolling out its fastest, premium Ryzen 7 chips first, including the Ryzen 7 1800X ($499), the Ryzen 7 1700X ($399) and Ryzen 7 1700 ($329). AMD’s Ryzen 5 and the Ryzen 3 will ship later this year—at the moment, AMD’s not saying exactly when.

Why this matters: About the only major aspect of Ryzen that AMD hadn’t yet disclosed was its price and availability. Analysts say AMD appears to have done its homework, leaving Intel in danger of giving up market share in the bread-and-butter PC microprocessors that built its company. But Intel has its ways: Possible responses include price cuts, additional chips with more cores, and promoting its new Optane technology, they said.

**** good prices, I really hope this pushes Intel to be more competitive on their 8 core models. Otherwise I'll be pretty torn when I finally upgrade.

hmmm, get the Asus X370-Pro and Ryzen 5 1500 65w? Sounds like a pretty killer modest gaming build.

I would wait for at least a revision of any motherboard, before buying. An initial release of any product is always iffy.

I'm pretty excited about this, I've been thinking about doing a new pc build for about a year almost, but I kept putting it off. I've been sticking with Intel builds for many years now and I'm not sure I'd switch camps, but this will certainly put the ball more in Intel's court.

I agree with mimart, best to wait a bit, I usually wait for a bios upgrade, gives them time to fix a few or wait 6 month then check for problems with the board on the internet. Nothing worse than having to dump a board if it's unreliable.
