The AMD Ryzen Eight Core 1800X is multi-award winning!
Over the past few months there has been a lot of speculation and talk about the new “Zen” processors from AMD, now known as Ryzen, particularly on the pricing and the performance front, and only recently have we seen what AMD has to offer through the coverage from AMD and the media.
AMD have been working on Ryzen and the new AM4 platform for a number of years, and have shown passion and innovation in creating a platform to take the market by storm.
Yesterday afternoon at 2PM the media started to release their reviews for the Ryzen 7 1800X. Taking a look at the reviews, the results are truly astonishing. Lets take a look at some of the reviews!
Tom “tinytomlogan” Logan from OC3D states that “when testing the 1800X from start to finish the processor was a revelation” and it made him and his team “extremely happy”, and “it is a match to Intel and performs extremely well for the price that it is offered at”, Tom is glad to see AMD is back! - You can read the review from OC3D here, the 1800X won the Enthusiast Grade Award.
Luke Hill from KitGuru has also had hands on, mentioning that “AMD has kicked through the front door of Intel’s HEDT processor party” and shown no mercy on the 6C12T and 8C16T chips.” He also said “that for £500 less than an 8C16T Intel chip which performs similarly makes AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X a relative bargain.” And that they are “extremely excited to review the 1700X to see how that performs.” - You can read the review from KitGuru here, winning the highest award, the 1800X won the Must Have Award.
Moving onto Bit-Tech, Antony Leather highly recommends the Ryzen 1800X, and mentions that the processor really performs well at stock speed, and you can get even more power out of it by overclocking it. They are looking forward to getting a closer look with the Ryzen architecture and features, and are proud to see AMD back when it comes to processors. - You can read the full indepth review here.
eTeknix also reviewed the 1800X, and Peter Donnell mentions that the 1800X is one of the best chips he has ever seen from AMD, delivering impressive performance, features, and overclocking, at an even more impressive price that should appeal to content creators and gamers. - Receiving the Editors Choice Award, you can read the full review here.
