AMD Ryzen: 8-core, 16-thread CPU, AMD SenseMI Technology
We talked about new trademarks that AMD had applied for and one of them were AMD Ryzen and now it turns out that it is the name of one of the AMD Zen CPUs. AMD Ryzen features 8 cores and 16 threads and this will be an enthusiast CPU. The CPU has a clock speed of over 3.4 GHz.
It seems that the AMD Ryzen has a self-overclocking function that allows for the CPU to overclock itself according to the cooling. This is unlike what we have seen in previous AMD chips. This feature will reward people that use proper cooling solutions and will overclock the chip without users having to do it manually. AMD Ryzen will be smarter and more refined as compared to what we have seen so far from AMD.
The New Horizon event is only a few hours away and at the event, we will be able to learn more about AMD Ryzen as well as AMD Zen. If you want to know more about the CPUs and what AMD has planned for 2017 then you should tune into the event later. The event will feature many guests and we will be able to see what AMD will be bringing to the table.
