AMD has just made its Ryzen CPU family official, with an event in San Francisco detailing the new Ryzen processors with the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X.




We now know the IPC improvements AMD were able to make over the previous Excavator core, with a huge 52% increase.




With the massive 52% boost in IPC performance, it allows AMD to sell the Ryzen 7 1800X processor for $499 - offering 8C/16T of CPU grunt at 4GHz Boost clocks and SenseMI technology - a CPU that beats Intel's Core i7-6900K - a chip that costs over $1000.
