The AMD Ryzen complete CPU roster has leaked out and two things have been made clear - that the Ryzen 7, 5, and 3 chips will not only beat Intel's Core i7, i5 and i3 CPUs in performance but will also undercut the latter in pricing, new reports said. AMD's Zen-based Summit Ridge bets seem all set to overwhelm any of Intel's Skylake and Kaby Lake processors.

Based on the data obtained by WCCFTech, AMD will initially deploy the Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 CPUs in nine variants and all with fully unlocked multipliers, meaning all processors will accommodate overclocking right out of the box.

The chipmaker plans to hit Intel where it could hurt most - pricing. As indicated in the same report, the Zen SR chips will start selling at $129, which is for the Ryzen 3 1100 that will boast of 8MB L3 cache, 65W TDP and base clock of 3.2GHz, which can boosted to 3.5GHz when desired. Ryzen 3 will be available for $149, which is for the faster 1200X with turbo clock of 3.8GHz. And both are in 4-core/4-thread configuration.

In the mid-range arena, AMD will unleash the Ryzen 5 1300, 5 1400X, 5 1500 and 5 1600X, and the sticker will start at $175 and no more than $259 for the most powerful variant of the series. Base clock is set at 3.2GHz and can go as high as 3.7GHz with overclocking or XFR. The latter is AMD's exclusive Extra Frequency Range feature that automatically kicks off overclocking when needed.

Also, Ryzen 5 will be available in 4-core/8-thread and 6-core/12-thread configurations.

And no doubt the cream is the Ryzen 7 series that will produce the 7 1700, 7 1700X and 7 1800X. All chips will have 16MB cache and maximum TDP rating of 95W. Base clock is between 3.0GHz and 3.7GHz but can be overclocked up to 4.0GHz on all cores. Earlier reports have indicated that as the flagship AMD CPU, the Ryzen 7 1800X overclocking speed can reach 5.0GHz but on single core.

In the same report and as echoed in other leaked details on the AMD Ryzen CPUs, WCCFTech said that the Ryzen 7 will sell with the following tag - $319, $389 and $499. Of note is that even the priciest of the batch - the Ryzen 7 1800X - will still come out very affordable when compared to its nearest rival, which is Intel's Core i7-6900K that retails for no less than $1000.

Clearly, the AMD Ryzen basic design is to defeat Intel with equal or even better level of CPU performance with sticker prices that are dirt cheap when pitted against any of the Core i7, i5 and i3 chips (Skylake and Kaby Lake).

However, Forbes said Intel is readying to turn back AMD's surge with Ryzen as the former is reported to release its Coffee Lake chips ahead of schedule, likely by Q4 2017. Coffee Lake is said to be 15 percent faster than Kaby Lake by the chip bearing budget-friendly price tag seems unlikely.
