The upcoming Intel Core i9-7960X 16-core processor, which is expected to be released by the end of the current quarter, has been spotted online on the popular Geekbench benchmark database.
Comparing the 1300X to the old FX-8370e we can clearly see the significant advancements that the new Zen core has brought to the table. Interesting times ahead for the HEDT processor segment. The stock is up 37.2% so far this year, helped by news that Apple's (AAPL) iMac Pro would include AMD graphics chips, as well as a surge in demand from cryptocurrency miners. That is a lot of money but then again living on the bleeding edge is not cheap at all. The stock's 50-day moving average is $13.20 and its 200-day moving average is $12.64.
Prices for the AMD Ryzen 3 processors start at $109.
AMD surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimates for earnings and revenue, notching year-over-year sales growth of 19% in the process. Notably, iBuyPower offers 3000 MT/s and 3200M T/s DDR4 memory in dual- and quad-channel configurations. A look at the AMD chart helps to answer this question.
In a press briefing, AMD said that the Ryzen 3 processors can outperform the competing Intel processors in gaming settings.
"We are very pleased with our improved financial performance, including double-digit revenue growth and year-over-year gross margin expansion on the strength of our new products". Internally, we see that Intel has gone from a traditional ring bus layout to connect the physical cores and cache to Intel's 2D mesh architecture that improves inter-core performance. Nvidia has shifted towards a machine learning and AI focus recently, but the company still brings in plenty of revenue on the consumer level, where it directly competes with AMD in the gaming market.
The baseline core clock speed on the Core i9 7900X is 3.3GHz with a Turbo Boost to 4.3GHz.
While concluding that GPU development is a "real phenomenon", Kelleher believes that artificial intelligence and advanced data centers will be major supplements to AMD's core business rather than crypto mining. The Ryzen 3 1300X promises a bit more power but costs $129. Operating income was US$25 million compared to an operating loss of US$8 million a year ago and an operating loss of US$29 million in the prior quarter. For example, the 1200 completed a 1080p video encode via Handbrake in 689 seconds, whereas the i3-7100 took 901 seconds.
iBuyPower is a boutique vendor who deals in mostly-standard parts, and the the smaller seller's Threadripper options are unsurprisingly more varied. It has the core count to crush the currently available best that AMD has to offer, albeit at a much higher price point. Obviously, the R3 series isn't going to be as powerful as its big brothers.
