AMD Ryzen 7 1800X review – where there's a will there's a way

Ever since AMD announced they will launch their next generation CPU series, I’ve seen a lot of debates over the Internet about the long-waited performance of the new processors and about how people expect AMD to finally compete Intel, not just selling cheap processors.

Today AMD launched Ryzen, the new CPU family that is supposed to balance the gap between them and Intel and bring the world attention towards AMD again.

Several days ago, AMD announced the new CPUs and chipsets, respectively Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3. We will start today with the flagship, namely Ryzen 7 1800X and will continue shortly with all other SKUs down the family.
