This is best of the best on am4 platform, finally long awaited 16 core CPU from AMD.


6 days ago.

Wanted CPU with excellent single thread performance and multi thread performance? Now AMD has released their long awaited flagship consumer CPU that was announced 5-6 months ago, 16 cores 32 threads with 3.5GHz base clock and 4.7GHz max boost clock, and 64MB of L3 cache is enough to stomp nearly every Intel CPU at stock. Unfortunately, there's little room left for users to overclock which may be a slight disadvantage compared to Intel's CPU, and has too few PCIe Lanes(16 PCIe 4.0 lanes) and memory channels (dual channels instead of quad channels) for enthusiasts. All despite that, this CPU poses excellent value for high single thread and multi thread performance at right price.
