|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|
The AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3,6 GHz 4-Core Processor at a Glance:
|The AMD Ryzen 5 1500X is a processor hailing from the new "Summit Ridge" generation with four logical CPU cores that, thanks to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), are capable of processing two threads at once on each core. This means that the number of processor cores is effectively supplemented by the addition of four further virtual cores to make a total of 8 effective cores. The 4-core Ryzen 5 model functions at a high clock rate of 3,6 GHz per core which, due to the implementation of Precision Boost, performs real-time tuning in accordance with the performance demands placed on the processor. This holds true in respect to both games and applications, adjusting itself on-the-fly in precise 25 MHz increments within the TDP framework up to a maximum of 3,7 GHz.|
|The days of racking your brains perfecting the art of the manual overclock are at an end as the CPU can control the entire process itself: As one of the "X" variants, the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X is equipped with the revolutionary Auto-OC feature known as Extended Frequency Range (XFR) to allow the processor's clock frequency to be drastically increased over the factory-set boost clock, provided sufficient cooling is supplied to the processor. As soon as the integrated CPU sensors detect the need for greater heat dissipation, the Ryzen CPU adjusts its clock rates to the respective cooling solution accordingly.|
|Motherboards equipped with the AM4 socket serve as the foundation for AMD's range of Ryzen CPUs, and they also offer cutting-edge interfaces. The CPU itself possesses four dedicated PCI-Express 3.0 lanes providing compatibility with modern SATA and PCI-Express SSDs in both M.2 and U.2 formats as well as support for the NVM-Express protocol (NVMe for short). A further 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes deliver abundant bandwidth for even high-end gaming graphics cards. Additional PCIe lanes for data storage, expansion cards and peripheral devices are allocated separately, dependent upon the chipset of the motherboard. The new AM4 platform also supports up-to-date external device interfaces like USB 3.1 Gen 2 with Type A and/or Type C connectors and high data transfer rates of up to 10 Gbit/s. The CPU's integrated memory controller supports AM4 motherboards as well as speedy and energy-efficient DDR4-RAM in dual-channel mode with or without ECC error correction.|
