AMD Ryzen 9 versus Intel Core i9 – A battle for dignity
AMD Ryzen 9 processor will feature up to 16 cores and 32 threads, 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and quad channel DDR4 memory while one of Intel’s X-series will be having a monster 18 cores and 36 threads processor but let’s think of it for a moment, It seems that they have a strat to push an enthusiast to deal with the top of the line X-series but even more expensive than Ryzen 9 since one of Intel’s Core i9 might be limited to only dual channel DDR4 memory and ~44 PCIe lanes.
Yeah, we only use a Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processor for a couple of years but things had changed. A competitor (AMD) unveils Ryzen few months ago so that Intel needs to fight and still want to monopoly the processor industry. Let’s welcome, Intel Core i9 – with up to 18 cores and 36 threads.
Intel’s new i9 chips come with 3.3GHz base clock speeds, and are capable of reaching up to 4.3GHz dual-core speeds with Turbo Boost 2.0, pushing that to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost 3.0 on a starting price of ₱50,000.
Also, there will be lower Core processor that still an X-Series family including Core i5-7640X and i7 models in different core variants in case you’re on a budget but likely to have an X-Series on your fancy RGB-Chassis.
AMD announced its new 16-core Ryzen 9 CPU, the Ryzen 9 1998X, at Computex – Taiwan. The CPU represents a ‘nick-name’ called Threadripper that the company revealed two weeks ago.
AMD hasn’t revealed on how much this ‘Threadripper’ cost, but i think it will be much cheaper than it’s competitor (we hope so).
‘hmm. This is the result of near monopoly, hoping that they will do good on Ryzen since I’m glad to see AMD being more competitive than the past years.
“Our message is that for the true enthusiast-class performance capability this combination will be an incredible combination,” said Lisa Su – AMD CEO.
They show off a 16-core Threadripper with a same workload test it used on lower Ryzen models and surprisingly awesome performance as we all know that Ryzen kills hyper-threading so this will be a tough fight for these two processor brands.
Who do you think will be the king of processor for this year?
