Leaks on AMD's lower-end Ryzen CPUs have been disproven 

 

Leaks on AMD's lower-end Ryzen CPUs have been disproven, with AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X having much higher clock speeds than was what previously rumoured. 

This calls all leaks regarding the lower-end of AMD's Ryzen lineup into question, with many SKUsbeing likely to have much higher clock speeds than were originally expected. 

Below is a list of all confirmed AMD Ryzen SKUs and their known clock speeds and specifications;

 

Processor NameCoresThreadsBase Clock SpeedsBoost Clock SpeedsTDPPrice UK
Ryzen 7 1800X8163.6GHz4.0GHz95W+£489
Ryzen 7 1700X8163.4GHz3.8GHz95W£389
Ryzen 7 17008163.0GHz3.7GHz65W£319
Ryzen 5 1600X6123.6GHz4.0GHz--

 

Below is a leak that was published yesterday by OCaholic, after AMD's Ryzen launch, which lists AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X with incorrect specifications, calling into question the validity of the remainder of the list. This list has since been published on several other tech websites, leading many to assume that this false information to be legitimate. 

This showcases how important it is to list "leaked" information as such and that any leaks should not be considered as "confirmed" by the press until the company in question makes and official announcement.

(Leaked Data from OCaholic- now proven false)

 

With the Ryzen 5 1600X coming with higher clock speeds (+300 base and +300 boost) than were previously leaked, which is a difference in specifications that can offer a huge boost in system performance. 

The important thing to take from this is that you should take all "leaks" with a grain of salt and not to put faith in them until the included information is officially confirmed.

Well this is common sense. While leaks can be great to get excited over you should always wait until things are proven before making any decisions.

As someone who is excited for the R5 line-up though, especially given the R7 price/performance this is great news. It's going to be faster than I was expecting.Quote

When you drop the core count you severely drop the required voltage and thus heat.

I fully expect much higher clocks out of the lower end parts.Quote

I reckon the R5 is going to be the gamers choice and the sweet spot for performance/price
6 cores os more then enough for gaming and then some with hyperthreadingQuote

No you raise voltage and heat!

Should be good for it against kaby lake and there high clocks, make it a little closer to ipcQuote
