Designed as the flagship model of AMD's multi-core processors, the Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHz Eight-Core AM4 Processor from AMD has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 4.0 GHz. Additionally, this processor features eight cores with sixteen threads in an AM4 socket and has 16MB of L3 cache memory. Having eight cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the sixteen threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor has a TDP of 95W and supports Extended Frequency Range (XFR), dual-channel DDR4 memory, AVX 2.0 extensions, 14nm semiconductor technology, AMD SenseMI technology, FMA3, and AMD Virtualization.

Graphically, the Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHz Eight-Core AM4 Processor does not contain any integrated graphics, meaning that users will need to purchase a dedicated graphics card of their choice. It is also unlocked, meaning it can be overclocked past its maximum turbo frequency. However, this is not recommended, as it will cause the processor to run much hotter. This CPU is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

    Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHz Eight-Core AM4 Processor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMD's new beefy processor. I wanted to build a new AMD powered computer and as soon as the Ryzen processor was released I went to work on getting the parts together. Since the Ryzen 7 1800X is the top of the line processor with 8 cores and a total of 16 threads, it has plenty of horsepower for running multiple applications/processes with ease. While the clock speeds aren't quite as fast as some of the Intel processors available, it is still pretty fast. If you are looking to build a new computer with lots of processing power, then you might start with the Ryzen 7 processors. While AMD hasn't quite caught up to Intel, they are getting closer and doing it at a pretty reasonable price considering the Intel equivalent to this processor is nearly double the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the hype. But do your research. These are powerful. First day released this chip was overclocked and broke the multi-threading record. It obviously over-clocks well with the right board. I'd recommend Gigabyte. This will be a fantastic choice for a production rig. AMD really came out swinging like Pacquiao. Single thread processing is still not surpassing Intel, but it's getting on their heels now at least and these chips use MUCH less power! In a lot of ways this chip is better than Intel's. Max RAM will be 64gb. The high end Intel LGA2011 socket CPU's with the 8 lane boards WILL be able to use double that. But 64gb is still a lot, even for something like composing music. Paired with SSD's, it should be plenty for even the most RAM intensive tasks. And when you figure the price difference between the two systems, most of us will be willing to settle for 64gb RAM This isn't necessarily the chip you want for high end gaming though! If you bought this specifically for gaming, you probably didn't do your research and don't understand that most games are hungry for single core processing, where Intel shines. They don't often take advantage of multi-threading. That's why AMD has been so far behind when it comes to gaming, but still very competitive and much better value when it comes to workstations. There are better and more affordable choices from AMD's Ryzen line for gaming. Have the initiative Hope that helps!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the Ryzen 7 with highest default base clock It seems all the ryzen 7 CPUs are pretty much identical with different clock setting. The 1800X I bought does overclock to 4.0GHz on air cooling at 1.45V and has passed some stress tests, but with mostly < 10% performance gain after overclocking, I would rather run the CPU at default settings for a longer lifespan. If you want a ryzen 7 that runs at overclocked speed full time and plan to upgrade within a couple of years, 1700 might be much more a cost effective choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryzen 7 1800X I pre ordered the 1800x and im excited to see what this 8 core can do. I will post an update after I run benchmarks and see how well it over clocks on with the NZXT Kraken X62. The computer industry needed this and I hope Ryzen matches the hype.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yup, works great! Long time Intel fan boy. Tried AMD for the first time and I am absolutely happy. Was torn between this and i7 7700K. Forceasting multi core as the future for simulations and potentially gaming (maybe), I bought this. Have been using this for a week. This gives insanely high performance for simulation software (CAD, FEA, or even Video Editing) when compared to i7 7700k. Theoretically, though it would fare slightly poorer in gaming w.r.t. i7, it is not a drastic drop. Hugely impressed with Ryzen 1800x. But you need to OC do cross 4 GHz at your own risk. Very easy to do that though! Go for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend. I was easily able to overclock to 4Ghz and under 100% load it tops out st 70 degrees. Very impressed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do not buy this if you think you can overclock. Wont do 4ghz This is a 3.6 ghz chip. It'l go 3.6-3.8 automatically and thats about it. Wont even run stable at 4.0ghz with normal voltages set to auto with ram at 2933mhz. (newest bios and all on a asus crossfire hero vi) It is however, an 8 core CPU that does what a 1000$ CPU can does. Gaming is fine, can get high frames with a gtx 1080. Its been a learning experience, I like the CPU so far, but for the extra price of intel, it would be worth it with less headaches and stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs Well Runs around 96 degrees with moderate cooling. Blisteringly fast. Would absolutely recommend.
