AMD's Ryzen1700X delivers incredible multi-threading and multi-tasking performance with 8 processor cores and 16 threads thanks to SMT Multithreading. Featuring true machine intelligence via AMD SenseMI technology, you can push the limits even further with Extended Frequency Range (XFR) to lift the maximum boost frequency in the presence of better cooling.
The YD170XBCAEWOF processor from AMD works on the AM4 platform. This 64-bit CPU has 8 cores operating at 3.4GHz with a Max Turbo Frequency of 3.8GHz. 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.
