AMD Summit Ridge CPU pricing leaked

 
The specifications and relative pricing of AMD's Zen-based Summit Ridge CPUs have been leaked, showing some estimated performance numbers and pricing all of AMD's summit Ridge CPUs at under $500. 
 
According to MAXSUN, AMD's Zen CPU will first launch on January 17th with a secondary launch for additional (likely lower end) Zen CPUs in early March. This means that AMD is likely to officially reveal their Zen CPUs at CES 2017, which will take place between January 6th and January 8th.    
 
At this time the core clock speeds of AMD's 8-core Zen CPUs are rumoured to have base clock speeds of 3.15-3.3GHz, with boost clock speeds of up to 3.5GHz, with current models reportedly overclocking to 4.2GHz using traditional means. At this time this information is unconfirmed, but it looks like Zen may deliver PC builders a lot of value for money. 
 
 

  
AMD Summit Ridge CPU pricing leaked  

 

Recent rumours have been suggesting that AMD is planning to use an Intel-like naming scheme for their Zen/Summit Ridge CPUs, with SR7, SR5 and SR3 series chips. This is an obvious plan on Intel's existing i3, i5 and i7 branding, with AMD's SR naming scheme being named after AMD's Summit Ridge brand name. 

This new above pricing list suggests, that the SR7 brand name will be used for 8-core CPUs, SR5 for 6-core CPUs and SR3 for quad-core CPUs. 

If the estimated Cinebench scores are representative of AMD's retail CPUs, their flagship Zen products will deliver performance that is similar to Intel 6850K, which is a 6-core 12-thread CPU. This suggests that AMD's Zen CPUs will have clock speeds that are lower than Intel's, provided that both CPU architectures deliver similar levels of per-core CPU performance.   

 

CPU ModelCoresThreadsCinebench 15 score (Estimated)ProcessTDPUS Price
Special Zen SR78161300+14nm95W$500
Zen SR7816130014nm95W$350
Zen SR5612100014nm95W$250
Zen SR34870014nm95W$150

 

If this leaked pricing information is correct, AMD's Quad-core Summit Ridge CPUs will deliver a lot of competition for Intel in the lower end i3/i5 section of the CPU market, with AMD delivering more CPU cores/threads than Intel at every price point.

So by the looks of it the Special SR7 is going to be the equivalent of the FX9590 which is basically an 8350 highly factory overclocked.

Should be interesting Quote

hmmm earlier stories said that the 8 core 16 thread was around the $300 and this new story saying there going to be $350.

So that's already a bump up of $50 and that's even before the retailers get them, They will be cheaper than intel but the question is going to be how much cheaper.

I'm think not that much in the long run.Quote

Hmm. I could swear I hit 1300 points with my 5820k at 4.6ghz. Either that or bloody close. Mind you, that was overclocked.. Wonder what the stock 5960x gets? I will look in a mo.

TBH the 8 cores are expensive. $350 isn't that bad I guess but I am assuming that one is locked. If so it would be easy to get a 5820k or something like it for less and overclock it.

If that quad core is unlocked though? sounds awesome. $150 is a great price for a 4c 8t CPU Quote

My 5930K at 4.40GHz hits 1289, May see if I can up it a bit more to over 1300 Quote

Just speculation. It also depends on which chip people are talking about from there "sources". SR7 could range from the lowest to highest chip maybe $280~350 and the special edition probably $400~420(I'm guessing here) so it is still cheaper than Intel. But Intel have the ability to drop prices. AMD won't. Tides can turn very quickly. This is why people who say "it doesn't have to beat it, just match it at a lower price" are wrong. If it matches it, Intel drop price, then they are already losing the battle. If they want to undercut they need steep pricing differences to where Intel will match prices, not go below. Doesn't seem like it will from all reports. I just hope that it's a lot faster than we think and price premium is good enough to justify if Intel drops there pricesQuote
