The new line of chips also bears new 8-core silicon design that runs 4.8 billion transistors and features 200m of wiring.


The company has also touted its new flagship 1800X chip ‘outperforming a similarly configured 8-core, 16-thread Intel Core i7-6900K in Cinebench R15 multi-threaded and Handbrake-based video transcoding, as well as showing comparable 4K gaming performance.’

    Sobrang taga naman sa local prices. They should be priced more competitively, kasi NEVER binababa ng local resellers sa SRP ang presyo nila. Unlike sa US na you can get them for up to 50$ less than SRP.

    So much for being a cheaper alternative to Intel. They should fix the blasted stupid PH tax system.
