The wait is now over as AMD is bouncing back into competition against Intel with its Ryzen series. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is the top of the line processor from AMD new Ryzen range of CPU. The 1800X offers eight Zen cores at a 3.6 GHz base clock and 4 GHz turbo clock alongside 16 MBs of L3 cache and DDR4 2667 memory.

Now let's focus on the detail specification of AMD Ryzen 7 1800X by Semi accurate, Ryzen 71800X CPU consist of the Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5 motherboard for socket AM4 CPUs. It has 16GB (2x8GB) of Corsair Vengence DDR4 3000MHz dual-channel RAM, and a Noctua NH-U12S CPU cooler.

The Ryzen 7 1800X is aimed at those who are in the market for a CPU that's competent for gaming but built to handle multi-core tasks like video production and streaming. The 1800X is the cheapest Ryzen 7 processor and it will set you back £500.

AMD's new Zen architecture adopts the 14nm FinFET technology which is much more power efficient compared to the previous Piledriver architecture's 32nm SOI manufacturing process. The thermal power design (TDP) of the Ryzen 7 1800x is 95W and it can ramp up the wattage to the AM4 limit of 128W under an all cores boost heavy load case.

As per Game Spot, AMD introduces some new technologies such as SenseMI, XFR, Precision Boost, and the AMD Ryzen Master software. SenseMI detects and reads the CPU's behavior and allows Precision Boost to work, which varies core clock speed in increments of 25 MHz on the fly. XFR recognizes how efficient your cooling solution is and ramps up clock speeds beyond the boost level. Finally, AMD Ryzen Master Software is an application that allows users to control clock speed, voltages, and monitor CPU activity.

AMD provides a three-year limited warranty for processors sold directly to retail. The warranty covers the usual defects, but doesn't cover damage caused by improper installation, or overclocking. These terms are standard for the industry. The Ryzen 7 1800X is an excellent choice for anyone who needs a processor to tackle heavily multi-threaded work and it is a good chip at a great price and it's putting Intel on notice.
