AMD Wraith Prism Preview – A Swirling Vortex Of Colour!

Spread the love

The 2nd Gen Ryzen processors not only feature a number of new features and enhancements, they are also cheaper and now come bundled with an AMD CPU cooler. AMD also introduced a new CPU cooler for the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (Price Check) processor – the AMD Wraith Prism.

In this article, we will take a close look at the AMD Wraith Prism, and see why we are all so excited about this swirling vortex of colour!


AMD Wraith Prism – A Swirling Vortex Of Colour!

James Prior (AMD Senior Product Manager) revealed at the Bangkok preview that the no. 1 piece of feedback they received was that Ryzen fans wanted a “swirling vortex of colour directly into their eyeballs“. LOL!

So AMD took their Wraith Max cooler, added a rainbow LED ring, and topped it up with LED-illuminated fan blades – all in RGB glory!

It’s not just a pretty version of the Wraith Max though. AMD made other improvements to the Wraith Prism :

  • Direct Contact Heat Pipes – The four heat pipes are now part of the copper base, in direct contact with the CPU. This allows for far better thermal transfer from the CPU to the heat pipes.
  • Enhanced Compatibility – The heatsink profile was reshaped to ensure compatibility with smaller motherboards.
  • Dark Mode for RGB Heathens – If the swirling vortex of colour in your eyeball is blinding you, yes, you can turn it off! 🙂
  • Switchable Overclock Fan Profile – In the standard quiet operation mode, the fan has a 39 dBA noise level. But if you need more cooling, you can kick it up a notch!
