AMD Ryzen 7 1800X unboxed


By Robert “Bob” Reyes

Members of the international press present at AMD Ryzen Tech Day in San Francisco, California last February 22 were given a Press Preview Kit. We unboxed our kit (enclosed in a wooden box) that comes complete with an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor, Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory stick modules, ASUS ROG Crosshair VI motherboard, and a Press Kit Edition Noctua AMD AM4 U-type tower cooler.

The top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 1800X has a base speed of 3.6GHz using an 8-core, 16-thread core with a 95-watt TDP and can be boosted up to 4.0GHz. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X outscored Intel’s US$1,050 processor Core i7 6900K by 9% using the Cinebench R15 nT tool.

All Ryzen 7 variants has AMD SenseMI Technology incorporated in them. SenseMI is a set of sensing, adapting, and learning technologies built into each AMD Ryzen processor to address the demanding needs of gamers and enthusiast PC users.

The Philippine SRP for the Ryzen 7 family of processors is pegged at PHP17,500 for the Ryzen 7 1700, PHP21,000 for the Ryzen 7 1700X and PHP27,000 for the Ryzen 7 1800X – all around half the price compared to their Intel counterpart.

The AMD Ryzen 7 family of processors will be available globally on March 2nd, with more than 82 motherboard options planned.

Here’s a video of the entire unboxing.
