AMD Ryzen processor with the "Zen" core architecture has come. Gamers and PC enthusiasts will surely get amazed of this high-performance processor.

Tom's Guide reported that the Intel alternative AMD Ryzen processor is now available. This would mean that PC enthusiasts and gamers will now enjoy a high-performance CPU at a lower cost than Intel processors.

AMD Ryzen is created not only for laptop, servers and desktop Personal Computers. It is primarily designed to boost the performance of an ordinary CPU's clock cycle by the rate of 40 percent. The AMD Ryzen processor uses the AM4 socket with the speed of a DDR4 RAM.

The processor chip has three specific varieties that start at the price of $329 and above. Meanwhile, according to Tech Radar, aside from the AMD Ryzen 7, there are no other versions which have been released yet. The Ryzen 7 will obviously compete with the Intel's Core i7 series processor.

AMD Ryzen processor was specifically designed to work on high loads for the initial gaming and server purposes. Because AMD Ryzen comes in a very high specification, it would require a motherboard with the same higher specification. More so, Ryzen's ultimate goal is to provide "maximum data throughput and instruction execution with high bandwidth, as well as low latency cache memory support for optimal, compute efficiency."

Eventually, an AMD Ryzen processor will feature an 8MB shared L3 cache, two threads per core, a Micro-op cache, and two AES units for security. Also, it has a large, unified L2 cache and high-efficiency FinFET transistors.

Specifically, there are three AMD Ryzen 7 which are officially released in the market. As of the moment, the Ryzen 7 1800X with 3.6 GHz base, 4.0 GHz turbo can be purchased at the price of $499. While the Ryzen 7 1700X with 3.4 GHz base, 3.8 GHz turbo at $399 and the Ryzen 7 1700 with 3.0 GHz base and 3.7 GHz turbo at $329 only.
