There are leaks of Ryzen motherboards getting retailed prices, then there are image leaks about Ryzen CPUs and now we get to see the images of Ryzen stock coolers in and out of the packaging. With all the leaks, it feels like AMD Ryzen is just around the corner.
The images of Ryzen stock coolers were provided by Videocardz that show off the stock coolers in and out of the packaging. The Ryzen stock coolers come with two variants. It is reported that Wraith Max is designed for higher Ryzen CPUs: R7 1800x and 1700x. Reportedly, it can withstand the 140w of heat.
However, the other stock cooler, Wraith Spire, is said to be power efficient. The Ryzen R7 1700 will use a Wraith Spire cooler and it is designed to deal with the heat of 95W. As it is designed to be more power efficient, it contains less number of heat pipes and a smaller heatsink.
Videocardz not only shared Ryzen stock coolers image but, it also shared the images of Ryzen CPUs. We know via a rumor that AMD Ryzen CPUs will be the first to see a launch date soon. Reportedly, early review units of AMD Ryzen CPUs will ship by February, 28. The early version for review includes Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700.
Additionally, the black edition with Extended Frequency Range technology (XFR) is also coming out in two Black edition 8-core CPUs, one Black edition 6-core and two Black edition 4-core CPUs. XFR feature enables auto-overclocking of Ryzen CPU. The overclocking exceeds the base clock speed and this feature happens automatically, based on the thermal conditions of CPU environment.
The European retailers are taking pre-orders for Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700 CPUs. The Ryzen roster includes seventeen different SKUs and the price tag starts from the base $129 to the top $499.
