AMD Ryzen Details Leak: Low Price, Plenty of Cores

With unlocked multipliers across the board and some factory overclocking and perhaps even auto-overclocking depending on cooling and available power, AMD's Ryzen CPUs may not just be an attractive proposition for overclockers and enthusiasts, but could make solid mainstream processors too. According to news published by WCCF Tech, there are possibilities of AMD to exclude 6 Core Processor and go ahead with 4 and 8 Cores.

This rumor comes from Thai site Zolkorn (via PCGamesN) which claims it spoke to a reliable source within AMD.

Leaked details of this new AM4 Summit Ridge CPU are pointed towards three variants targeting high, mid and entry level sectors. They are Zen SR7, Zen SR5 and Sen SR3. The ZenSR5 was supposed to be taking the middle ground between these two, with six cores and 12 threads.

That would then give them the option to have resolutely quad-core and quad-core / eight thread designs, straight eight-core chips and finally a top-spec eight-core / 16-thread setup.
