AMD  Ryzen 5 Six Core 1600X 3.6GHz / 4Ghz Turbo *No Cooler (Socket AM4)


After more than four years of work on the new "Zen" microarchitecture for their x86 processors, the beginning of 2017 heralds AMD`s fresh attempt at recapturing the high-end segment. After having previously abandoned this front in the eternal battle between David and Goliath, AMD has rolled out the heavy guns in the form of a cutting-edge processor design going by the name of Ryzen.

Massive performance improvements in every respect mean that AMD`s Ryzen quad-core, hexa-core and octa-core CPUs handily outperform their predecessors and combine innovative features with a pioneering platform as well as cutting-edge I/O interfaces. And yet AMD`s new "Zen" architecture is so flexible and versatile that they can be installed into high-end desktop platforms as well as mainstream APUs utilising integrated graphics, and enabling the processors to scale from high-performance servers for data centres all the way down to fan-less mobile platforms, has brought forth an array of performance-enhancing features and characteristics to their intended fields. This is how the chip manufacturer intends to pave the way for a dazzling comeback, and AMD has laid the foundations to this approach for the next few years on the broad shoulders of the AM4 platform. As the underdog in the battle for supreme processing power, AMD continues to offer their customers an extremely attractive price-to-performance ratio in the new range of Ryzen CPUs.
