Ryzen to compete with Core i7 7700K too
There has been much discussion about the eight cores sixteen threads Ryzen CPU and the fact that it will compete quite well against Intel's Core i7 6950 extreme edition but it looks like the Zen with eight cores with sixteen threads will get really close to the performance of the Core i7 7700K.
This is the sweet spot of the performance market and in recent years, Intel started charging customers close to 350 Euro/USD for the CPUs at this level, simply because it was lacking any serious competition. Our well placed industry sources confirm that a slightly slower closed eight core Ryzen with eight threads will compete well with Core i7 7700K series Kaby Lake processors.
This CPU was listed in a recent leak as R7 1700X and R7 1700 and from a manufacturing point of view, the silicon will end up more expensive per square inch but again, it will get AMD to a much better position than where it is today.
