The best processor for under $150? Ryzen 3 shines on the testbed

AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper features next-gen packaging

While Intel's current top-end Skylake-X chip, i9-7900X, boasts 10 cores and 20 threads, AMD's top Threadripper chips are going to deliver 6 additional cores, and likewise, 12 additional threads - and sell it for the same $999 MSRP.

AMD wasn't able to turn a profit this quarter, but analysts are bullish on the chipmaker's solid Ryzen CPU sales.

As AMD begins shipping its low-end Ryzen 3 chip Thursday, it's employing a familiar strategy: undercutting Intel's Core i3 pricing while offering more performance.

The next four images showcase the Wraith Spire cooler that was included with both Ryzen 3 CPUs.

"Innovation and competition have returned to the PC market in the form of Ryzen", AMD told us. You know, we put out some of the first technology that enables you to bring VR [experience] to everyday consumer.

On a GAAP basis, revenue was $1.22 billion, up 19 percent year-over-year, driven by higher revenue in the Computing and Graphics segment. The Ryzen 3 1200 is the base model that's available starting today for $109.

"Our Ryzen desktop processors, Vega GPUs, and EPYC data center products have received tremendous industry recognition", said AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su.

I asked Su about how Intel has touted the way Xeon is tailored more this time around for specific workloads in cloud computing. That full-year outlook is a boost from previous guidance calling for low double-digit percentage growth.

For the first quarter, AMD lost $0.04 per share as revenue rose 18.3% year-over-year to $984 million. Analysts had expected $1.16 billion in sales and break-even earnings. Kelleher is waiting for a pullback before considering buying in - shares are up 32 percent this year.

For the third quarter of 2017, AMD expects revenues to increase approximately 23% sequentially, plus or minus 3pp.

Further revenue growth is almost guaranteed, given that AMD is now or will soon be competitive in all of its core markets, compared to not being competitive at all during the past few years. The super-size-me approach apparently extends to the box as well, which appears to be the size of a moderate mini-ITX PC.

In June, the stock surged after AMD noted that the rise in digital currency prices was a leading cause in increasing demand for its graphic chips. With four physical processing cores, all multiplier unlocked, they provide impressive multiprocessing advantages and game performance.

The company has beat on earnings estimates in the last seven quarters, topping estimates by an average of 106.82% over that period. Still, when it's up against Intel's two Hyper-Threaded cores, the 1300X boasts a notable resource advantage. The bottom SKU (which is weird to say as it's $2,499) includes a 120GB SSD, GeForce GTX 1070, and 16GB of memory.
