The 15 New AMD Ryzen 7 CPU Coolers Revealed

The 15 New AMD Ryzen 7 CPU Coolers Revealed

The new AMD Ryzen 7 processors hit the stores on March 2, 2017, when pre-orders were opened for the Ryzen 7 1800X (Lowest Price), the Ryzen 7 1700X and the Ryzen 7 1700 processors. But what about the Ryzen 7 CPU coolers? The Ryzen 7 1700 comes with a free AMD Wraith Spire LED cooler, but the two higher-performance models do not come with any CPU cooler.

The AMD Ryzen 7 processors still use the same AM4 socket, but the mount holes are placed further out. This may mean your existing AM4 cooler may not mount properly on the new Ryzen 7 motherboards. So let’s check out what AMD’s CPU cooler partners have in store to pair with the AMD Ryzen 7 processors!

Updated @ 2017-08-08 : Added more links. Made other minor improvements.

The AMD Ryzen 3 Processor Tech Report

Last week, AMD invited us to a tech briefing on the AMD Ryzen 3 processors for the mainstream desktop market. This is a follow-up to their earlier teaser on the Ryzen 3, when they revealed the Ryzen Threadripper processor. We managed to create a video of both their presentation, as well as the Q&A session after that. Check them out!

 

The AMD Ryzen 3 Processors Revealed!

The tech briefing session was hosted by AMD PR Manager Iain Bristow, with three AMD spokespersons – James Prior (Senior Product Manager for AMD Client Desktop), Don Woligroski (Global Marketing Manager for AMD Desktop Processors) and Robert Hallock (Head of Global Technical Marketing, AMD).

In this 22-minute video presentation, they detailed the key performance advantages of the new Ryzen 3 processors over their Intel Core i3 competitors. They also talked about the introduction of the 7th Generation AMD A-Series and Athlon processors to the Socket AM4 platform.

The AMD team then took questions from members of the media for 10 minutes on the new Ryzen 3 processors.

Here are the key points :

  • The AMD Ryzen 3 processors have four processors cores, capable of processing 4 simultaneous threads.
  • All AMD Ryzen 3 processors feature the AMD SenseMI technology, and are multiplier-unlocked.
  • The first two AMD Ryzen 3 processors are the Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200.[adrotate group=”2″]
  • They will both come with the low-profile AMD Wraith Stealth cooler.
  • The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X is up to 29% faster than the Intel Core i3-7300.
  • The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X is up to 17% faster than the Intel Core i3-7100.
  • AMD will make the Wraith MAX cooler, with RGB LED control, available for purchase for US$ 59.
  • AMD also announced the worldwide availability of the 7th Generation A-Series and Athlon processors to cater to entry-level PCs.
  • They also announced the availability of BIOS updates based on AGESA 1.0.0.6 (AMD Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture) which allows for better overclockability with 3200 MHz DDR4 memory compatibility.
