AMD Ryzen 7 1800X AM4 8-Core Processor Review

Another review of the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X has popped up on the internet today. This time around it is the crew at eTeknix doing the reviewing.

We kick things off today with the flagship Ryzen chip; the Ryzen 7 1800X, which offers up 8 cores, 16 threads, and an incredible launch price of just $499, which comes in at less than half the price of a similar specification Intel Core i7-6900K. While we want to see AMD set some top scores today, even if it’s a close call compared to the performance of the Intel hardware, at half the price, we would still chalk that up as a huge win, both for AMD and consumers.
