AMD's Ryzen 1700 combines 8 processor cores and 16 threads with a surprisingly low 65W TDP to deliver an efficient, powerful processing solution like no other. The 8 cores lets you run multiple programs at the same time without a hiccup. This AM4 processor has a base clock speed of 3.0 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 3.7 GHz. Additionally, this processor features eight cores with sixteen threads in an AM4 socket and has 16MB of L3 cache memory. Having eight cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the sixteen threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor has a TDP of 65W and supports Extended Frequency Range (XFR), dual-channel DDR4 memory, AVX 2.0 extensions, 14nm semiconductor technology, AMD SenseMI technology, FMA3, and AMD Virtualization.
The YD1700BBAEBOX processor from AMD works on the AM4 platform. This 64-bit CPU has 8 cores operating at 3GHz with a Max Turbo Frequency of 3.7GHz. Advanced features of the 14 nm chip include 8 x 64KB Instruction L1 Cache, 8 x 512KB L2 cache, and 2 x 8MB L3 cache with simultaneous multithreading support. This processor comes with a heatsink/cooler bundled with it, however, if you want to upgrade your cooling make sure what you use supports AM4 and a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 65 Watts.
