AMD Ryzen 7 Wraith Max and Spire Coolers Leaked, Box Design Pictured
The Ryzen 7 Wraith coolers have leaked out on the web. The two fan types, the Wraith Max and Wraith Spire, will come boxed with AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700 chips.
AMD’s next generation Ryzen processors are set to launch in early March. The Ryzen lineup includes 17 different models: five octa-core, four hexa-core and eight quad-core CPUs. All models feature fully unlocked multipliers, making each of them support overclocking right out of the box.
Ryzen 7 Wraith Max and Spire Coolers with 140W and 95W TDPs
A new leak, courtesy of VideoCardz, suggests that the top-end Ryzen 7 1800X and 1700X will be available in two options: with and without the brand-new Wraith Max cooler. The Wraith Max has a thermal design power of 140W and the multi-pack costs $20 more.
The 65W Ryzen 7 1700 will also ship with a new cooler called Wraith Spire which has a TDP of 95W.
The Ryzen 7 Wraith coolers are designed to help Ryzen chips run cool and keep the system quiet. Especially, the high performance Wraith Max which will allow Black Edition 95W Ryzen CPUs to achieve better overclocking thanks to AMD’s new “auto-overclocking” eXtended Frequency Range (XFR) technology.
Here’s a close-up of both Wraith Max and Spire coolers for Ryzen 7 CPUs:
This is what Ryzen’s retail box actually looks like:
We also have the next-gen Ryzen processors pictured in all their glory. There are quite a lot of the final ready-to-ship samples with Ryzen logo on their backside. The picture would also mean that AMD is gearing up for a full blown launch to take on all Intel desktop chips.
Full AMD Ryzen Lineup – 8, 6 and 4-core Models Detailed
AMD will sell its Ryzen family of processors in three distinct tiers: Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 – just like Intel’s Core i7, i5 and i3 product lines.
The Ryzen 7 will be top-of-the-line 8-core, 16-thread CPUs. There will be at least three such CPUs available initially. These include two 95W Black Editions, the 1800X and the 1700X, and a 65W 1700 chip. The Ryzen 7 CPUs will rival Intel’s Core i7 6900K and 5960X whilst priced at a half to one-third.
The 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 CPUs will target the mid-range segment where they will take on Intel’s current flock of i5 chips. There are two hexa-core Ryzen chips, the Black Edition Ryzen 5 1600X 95W and Ryzen 5 1500 65W.
Next up, we have two medium range quad-core CPUs, the Ryzen 5 1400X and 1300. They offer i7 quad-core level of performance albeit at slightly lower clocks and for around two-thirds to a half of the price.
Finally, the entry-level Ryzen stack consists of two quad-core chips without multi-threading. It’s worth noting that, while both these chips have SMT disabled, they feature fully unlocked multipliers to support overclocking.
