AMD RYZEN 7 Processor India Launch Specs Price

AMD has finally launched the much-awaited Ryzen 7 processors at an event yesterday. Dr. Lisa Su looks animated and full of energy while introducing the new Ryzen Processor to the media. It is the largest AMD launch in the last 10 years and more important for the company than anything has been in the last decade.

Moreover, Dr. Lisa Su was happy to share how the new AMD Ryzen performs Vs the Intel Processors with Cinebench running on 2 similar rigs and also playing Sniper Elite 4 on a Dual RX 480. The presentation was full of energy and hope for a brighter future for AMD group.

I can’t miss and compare her attire, blue jeans and a black t-shirt to our favorite presenter of all time – Steve Jobs. The presentation instantly reminded of iPhone launch in 2007 and what it meant for Apple. Ryzen means the same for AMD or even more…

The Ryzen line is supposed to consist of 3 categories:

  • R7 – 8 Cores/16 Threads Variant
  • R5 – 6 Cores/12 Threads and 4 Cores/ 8 Threads Variant
  • R3 – 4 Cores/4 Threads Variant

AMD RYZEN 7 Processor India Launch Specs Price

Though, AMD has launched the High-end Ryzen 7 which competes with the Intel Core i7 Broadwell-E and a bit to the Kaby Lake processors. The remaining R5 and the R3 processors will be launched later on. However, no date is specified for the availability of the lower range of processors. Most Indian Gamers would be interested to know about the AMD Ryzen 5 and 3 series pricing and performance. I will update about that as some details emerge.

AMD has Unveiled 3 new processors at the event and they will go on sale on 2nd March globally as well as in India. The pre-orders are already started at some of the premium retailers in Mumbai (i spoke to them yesterday). The delivery will be on 2nd March 2017.

Here is an AMD RYZEN 7 Processor India Launch, Specs & Price.

RYZEN 7 Cores/ threads Cache TDP Base Turbo XFR Price (US – India)
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X*  8/16 20 MB 95W 3.6GHz 4.0GHz 4.1 GHz+ $499~₹ 40,599
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X*  8/16 20 MB 95W 3.4GHz 3.8GHz 3.9 GHz+ $399~₹ 31,299
AMD Ryzen 7 1700*  8/16 20 MB 65W 3.0GHz 3.7GHz N/A $329~₹ 25,999

Some of the Performance Numbers shared by AMD

The top of the line is the Ryzen 1800X which comes with 95 Watts TDP and a boost clock of 4.0 GHz. AMD has also stated that the processors can boost 0.1 Ghz higher with adequate cooling and XFR profile enabling.

Though there is more room for overclocking for the enthusiasts.Pricing – The AMD Ryzen 7 series price starts at Rs. 25,999 for the Ryzen 7 1700 which comes with one of the lowest TDP of 65 Watts and has a boost clock of 3.7 GHz. While the Ryzen 7, 1700X is priced at Rs. 31,299 in India and it comes with 95 Watts TDP with a Boost clock upto 3.8 GHz.

Ryzen Performance Benchmarks

Dr Lisa Su during her presentation shared that they set out to achieve a 40% boost for IPC (instructions per clock) at the start of development but now they are excited to share that they have been able to achieve 52% and have beaten their goal.

BenchMarks – Some of the benchmarks shown by AMD including the Cinebench R15 nT showcased that the R7 1800X  beats the Intel Core i7 6900K (India Price Rs. 84,000) also has 8 Core and 16 thread architecture. The price to performance ratio is really favorable for AMD.

AMD RYZEN 7 Processor India Launch Specs Price – AMD processors have not seen any success in the last 10 years and this is a Mega launch we have ever seen from AMD with over 182 partners to see the AM4 motherboards and Ryzen processors. The launch is the largest sales extravaganza that AMD has ever done in the past.

Though Intel has been ruling the PC Processor market for the last decade and after the Bulldozer series from AMD tanked. Intel has never really had any competition in the market and this is the first time they are facing the heat. Intel may also think of lowering the prices for their processors to compete with AMD, and not to lose much market share. It is a very good news for PC Gamers, Content creators, and enthusiasts. And we are happy too.

Motherboards AM4 for Ryzen 7 Processor

Also, You will need to buy a compatible AMD AM4 motherboard to work with the new Ryzen 7 Series processors and there are several manufacturers (Asus, Gigabyte, AsRock) which are already shipping the motherboards with the 2nd March release of the AMD CPU.

Motherboard for AMD Ryzen

RAM for Ryzen 7 – The processors are capable to run with the DDR4 ram. However, you may have to check the motherboard specs to understand the highest frequency of RAM compatible with the motherboard. AMD most likely would be shipping a stock cooler (at least with low-end Ryzen 1700). Although, Intel has stopped the shipping of stock coolers for last 2 years.

Brief Note for Indian Gamers – Most gamers are content to buy a Core i3 and an Intel Core i5 processor. The Core i5 is available close to 17K and if you pair it with a GTX 1060 or RX 480, you can get a great 1080P gaming experience.

Core i5, Core i7  or Ryzen 7 – The performance upgrade between a Core i5 and a Core i7 is not too much for games that mostly use 1-2 Cores and may not get a boost with multi-core processors like the Ryzen. These are still early days we need to see more benchmarks to understand the comparative performance of Intel Core i5 and Ryzen 7. It will take some more time to conclude if we should recommend it over the Core i5.

Besides, based on the survey, most gamers are waiting for more benchmarks to arrive before they purchase it.

Ryzen Buy or Wait – Poll Results

AMD has already shipped 1 million of the AMD RYZEN processors globally and there will be plenty of reviews coming after the initial embargo of 2nd March ends. We have also reached out to AMD India for some more details, which we will update soon.

  1. AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (non x) , and a Mini Itx build is on my mind, with nice MSI 1060 Gaming x, so a 65 watt one with custom painted box, and a B350 board.
    have short listed spay paint on amazon already :).

  2. Hi,
    as always good job on the post.
    Now don’t get disheartens by the lackluster gaming performance in comparison to 7700k.
    Its not true. PERIOD.
    let me explain, the gaming experience is highly depended on minimum frame rate, for smoother experience, as many reviews have pointed it actually has almost 25% higher “minimum frame rate ” than The MIGHTY 7700K. But they dont actually say that? hmmmm…. intel pay @ work here.
    What they say is about the highest frame rate it may lack behind but AMD has much better experience and less shutters than Intel for once.
    they are just pointing the difference between higher frame rate which in my experience is useless, if you wanted to botch the frame rate just for a microsecond look towards the sky in any game. see your frame rate quadruple. as there is nothing to render. its the minimum frame rate which defines the better game rendering.
    Just my two cents and you can test it out if you want,
    But over all cant wait to buy the 6 core 12 thread variant.

    • Thanks Eklavya- Which one are you planning to buy ? there are more mid range processors coming from AMD which will appeal to majority of Gamers in India…
