AMD gives a sneak peek at the Ryzen 5 CPUs, showcases Ryzen 1800X running with faster memories

AMD has released a new video in which AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su and VP of Marketing John Taylor discuss Ryzen and head into the labs for a sneak peek into how Ryzen 5 processors are performing in advance of their April 11th launch.

AMD has also showcased its Ryzen CPUs running with faster memory modules. AMD showed its Ryzen 7 1800X CPU running with DDR4-2933 and compared it with a similar system in which the memory was replaced with DDR4-2133Mhz. AMD ran F1 2016’s benchmark tool and the first system performed better by an average of 16fps.

AMD will release four Ryzen 5 CPUs on April 11th. Two of them will be quad-cores and the other two will be six-cores.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
