The AMD AM4 platform will be based on the Promontory chipset which has five SKUs. These consist of X370 (enthusiast), B350 (mainstream), A320 (essential), X300 (enthusiast SFF) and A300 (essential SFF). AMD has planned a total of 42 new AM4 motherboards which will be available at launch through their board partners. The boards are detailed in our post here.

AMD X370 / X300 For Enthusiast and SFF AM4 Motherboards

First up, we have the X370, a high-end chipset for overclockers and tweakers who need robust platforms. This chipset provides the ultimate low-level control to its users and delivers ultimate graphics card bandwidth. By bandwidth, AMD is referring to max PCI Express lanes as this is the only chip in the stack that supports multi-GPU functionality. The chipset supports both, CFX (CrossFire) and SLI. Features of X300 series chipsets include:

  • Dual-channel DDR4 memory
  • NVMe
  • M.2 SATA devices
  • USB 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2
  • PCIe 3.0 capability

AMD has mentioned two full x16 (Gen3) lanes for GPUs. AIBs can add additional lanes through a PLX chip but that would add to the cost. X370 features full overclocking support with a very sophisticated GUI that will allow the best overclock tools and experiences. Since all AM4 CPUs have an unlocked multiplier, record breakers will definitely put X370 boards to the test on liquid and LN2 setups. There’s also X300 which is the chip aimed at Mini-ITX boards featuring enthusiast grade designs. Boards based on this SKU will be available around mid-2017.

AMD B350 For Mainstream AM4 Motherboards

AMD B350 is the mainstream chipset and offers the most value in terms of I/O and functionality. This chip offers less lanes compared to X370 since AMD believes that most users don’t go multi-GPU in this segment. Aside from that, the chipset does retain overclocking support for all AM4 CPUs that will be offered in the future. This chipset replaces the 970 and A78 platforms. he AMD B350 chipset features 70% power reduction over its AM3+ predecessor (5.8W vs 19.6W). The latest DDR4 memory controller also offers 22% more bandwidth compared to DDR3.

Some general features of the AM4 platform is that it offers new I/O capabilities. We are looking at faster DDR4-2400 MHz memory, PCIe Gen 3.0, USB 3.1 Gen 2, NVMe and SATA Express support. These features have been missing on AMD platforms for a while but it’s nice that AMD is finally making a proper comeback with modern feature support.

AMD A320 / A300 For Essential and SFF AM4 Motherboards

Next up, we have the low-end chipsets for the Promontory stack. The A320 is the essential platform for plug and play users who just want their PC to work with decent capabilities. This chipset replaces the 760G and A68H based platforms. Most of the features from B350 will be retained but there will be no overclocking support on such motherboards. This chip has 4 PCIe Gen 2 lanes and 1+2+6 (USB 3.1 Gen2, USB 3.1 Gen1, USB 2.0) support.

The A300 is the chip designed for Small Form Factor (SFF) computers and generally, HTPC builds. This offers the ultimate power and space efficiency in the entire product stack. This is a new chip that has been exclusively built for the SFF niche. A300 has limited functionality but will be extremely cheap and allow for great SFF setups.

AMD Ryzen 7 Series CPUs – Flagship AMD 7 1800X With 8 Cores, 16 Threads, 4 GHz Boost Clocks

The AMD Ryzen 7 range will feature the fastest “X” variant in the lineup. This processor will be known as the AMD 7 1800X featuring 8 cores and 16 threads. This model is expected to operate at base clocks of 3.6 GHz and boost clocks of 4.0 GHz. The performance of this processor should be on par with Intel’s Core i7 6900K. Other details include an L2 + L3 cache of 20 MB (4 MB + 16 MB) and a TDP of 95W. The chip will have enthusiast level pricing so expect something around $499.

The rest of the processors in the Ryzen 7 family are also 8 core and 16 threaded variants. The Ryzen 7 series has clock speeds ranging from 3.0 GHz up to 3.6 GHz. The processors include Ryzen 7 PRO 1800, Ryzen 7 1700X, Ryzen 7 1700 and Ryzen 7 PRO 1700. Benchmarks of the 1700X performing next to Intel’s HEDT lineup can be seen here.

AMD Ryzen 5 Series CPUs – Fastest AMD Ryzen 5 1600X With 6 Cores, 12 Threads and Ryzen 5 With 4 Cores, 8 Threads

Next in the lineup is the AMD Ryzen 6 series which will be a mix of 6 core and 4 core models with SMT. The Ryzen 5 series will include the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X which is the fastest 6 core model. This model will have clocks configured at up to 3.3 GHz base and 3.7 GHz boost. The 1600X processor will feature a TDP of 95W.

Rest of the lineup includes the Ryzen 5 PRO 1600, Ryzen 5 1500, Ryzen 5 PRO 1500, Ryzen 5 1400X, Ryzen 5 PRO 1400, Ryzen 5 1300 and the Ryzen 5 PRO 1300.

The Ryzen 5 1400X will be the fastest 4 core, 8 thread chip. The clock speeds for the chip will be rated at 3.5 GHz base and 3.9 GHz boost. The Ryzen 5 1600X processor will tackle the Core i5 7600K, the Ryzen 5 PRO 1600 will tackle the Core i5 7600 (non-K) and the Ryzen 5 1500 will tackle the Core i5 7500 (non-K). The AMD Ryzen 5 1400X will compete against the Core i5 7400 (non-K) chip.

AMD Ryzen 3 Series CPUs – Fastest AMD Ryzen 3 1200X With 4 Cores, 4 Threads, 3.4 GHz Base Clocks

Last in the lineup would be the Ryzen 3 series which are simple quad core models without SMT support. The Ryzen 3 series are the only models that don’t feature SMT support and will be the entry level models which will be designed to compete against the Intel Core i3 and Pentium series processors. The fastest model in the lineup will be the AMD Ryzen 3 1200X which will feature 4 cores, 4 threads and a base clock of 3.4 GHz which may boost to 3.8 GHz.

The rest of the lineup includes the AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 1200, AMD Ryzen 3 1100 and the Ryzen 3 PRO 1100. The frequencies of the Ryzen 3 series lineup will range between 3.1 GHz and 3.4 GHz (boost clocks). TDPs for these chips will be set at 65W. AMD Ryzen processors and the AM4 platform would be available in the retail market on 2nd March, 2017.
