Processors

The central processing unit (CPU) is the portion of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a computer program, to perform the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of the system. The CPU plays a role somewhat analogous to the brain in the computer. The term has been in use in the computer industry at least since the early 1960s. The form, design and implementation of CPUs have changed dramatically since the earliest examples, but their fundamental operation remains much the same.

Processor

A processor is a key component of a computing device, which steers other components via software. The fundamental property of a processor is its programmability. The behaviour of a processor is determined by programmers by means of computer code. The main processor components are the register, arithmetic and logic unit (ALU), control unit and the memory management unit (MMU), which administers memory. Central tasks of a processor include arithmetic operations, reading and writing data in the memory as well as executing programme jumps.

CPU socket
i

CPU socket

A CPU socket or CPU slot is a mechanical component that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the CPU to be replaced without soldering.
Common sockets have retention clips that apply a constant force, which must be overcome when a device is inserted. For chips with a large number of pins, either zero-insertion force (ZIF) sockets or land grid array (LGA) sockets are used instead. These designs apply a compression force once either a handle (for ZIF type) or a surface plate (LGA type) is put into place. This provides superior mechanical retention while avoiding the risk of bending pins when inserting the chip into the socket.

Processor clock frequency

Processor clock frequency

In electronics and especially synchronous digital circuits, a clock signal is a particular type of signal that oscillates between a high and a low state and is utilized like a metronome to coordinate actions of circuits. Although the word signal has a number of other meanings, the term is here used for "transmitted energy that can carry information".

A clock signal is produced by a clock generator. Although more complex arrangements are used, the most common clock signal is in the form of a square wave with a 50% duty cycle, usually with a fixed, constant frequency. Circuits using the clock signal for synchronization may become active at either the rising edge, falling edge, or, in the case of double data rate, both in the rising and in the falling edges of the clock cycle.

64-bit architecture

In computer architecture, 64-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are at most 64 bits (8 octets) wide. Also, 64-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size.
The Basic advantage of a 64-bit System is, that more than 4GB RAM can be adressed.

Number of processor cores

A multi-core processor (or chip-level multiprocessor, CMP) combines two or more independent cores (normally a CPU) into a single package composed of a single integrated circuit (IC), called a die, or more dies packaged together. A dual-core processor contains two cores, and a quad-core processor contains four cores.

Number of threads
i

Number of threads

In computer science, a thread of execution is the smallest unit of processing that can be scheduled by an operating system. The implementation of threads and processes differs from one operating system to another, but in most cases, a thread is contained inside a process. Multiple threads can exist within the same process and share resources such as memory, while different processes do not share these resources. In particular, the threads of a process share the latter's instructions (its code) and its context (the values that its variables reference at any given moment). To give an analogy, multiple threads in a process are like multiple cooks reading off the same cook book and following its instructions, not necessarily from the same page.

Lithography

Photolithography (or "optical lithography") is a process used in microfabrication to selectively remove parts of a thin film or the bulk of a substrate. It uses light to transfer a geometric pattern from a photo mask to a light-sensitive chemical "photoresist", or simply "resist," on the substrate.

Max. TDP
i

Max. TDP

The thermal design power (TDP), sometimes called thermal design point, refers to the maximum amount of power the cooling system in a computer is required to dissipate. For example, a laptop's CPU cooling system may be designed for a 20 watt TDP, which means that it can dissipate up to 20 watts of heat without exceeding the maximum junction temperature for the computer chip. It can do this using an active cooling method such as a fan or any of the three passive cooling methods, convection, thermal radiation or conduction. Typically, a combination of methods is used. The TDP is typically not the most power the chip could ever draw, such as by a power virus, but rather the maximum power that it would draw when running "real applications". This ensures the computer will be able to handle essentially all applications without exceeding its thermal envelope, or requiring a cooling system for the maximum theoretical power (which would cost more but in favor of extra headroom for processing power).

L1 Cache
i

L1 Cache

A CPU cache is a cache used by the central processing unit of a computer to reduce the average time to access memory. The cache is a smaller, faster memory which stores copies of the data from the most frequently used main memory locations. As long as most memory accesses are cached memory locations, the average latency of memory accesses will be closer to the cache latency than to the latency of main memory.

When the processor needs to read from or write to a location in main memory, it first checks whether a copy of that data is in the cache. If so, the processor immediately reads from or writes to the cache, which is much faster than reading from or writing to main memory.

Most modern desktop and server CPUs have at least three independent caches: an instruction cache to speed up executable instruction fetch, a data cache to speed up data fetch and store, and a translation lookaside buffer (TLB) used to speed up virtual-to-physical address translation for both executable instructions and data. Data cache is usually organized as a hierarchy of more cache levels (L1, L2, etc.; see Multi-level caches).

L3 Cache

L3 Cache

Another issue is the fundamental tradeoff between cache latency and hit rate. Larger caches have better hit rates but longer latency. To address this tradeoff, many computers use multiple levels of cache, with small fast caches backed up by larger slower caches.

Multi-level caches generally operate by checking the smallest Level 1 (L1) cache first; if it hits, the processor proceeds at high speed. If the smaller cache misses, the next larger cache (L2) is checked, and so on, before external memory is checked.

As the latency difference between main memory and the fastest cache has become larger, some processors have begun to utilize as many as three levels of on-chip cache.

Edition 07/2017- Der AMD Ryzen 7 1700X ist deutlich günstiger als das neue Flaggschiff 1800X, aber gleichzeitig preislich nicht ganz so attraktiv wie der kleine Bruder 1700 ohne X, welcher kaum langsamer ist als die X-Variante und gleichzeitig mit einem niedrigeren Stromverbrauch auf sich aufmerksam macht. Ansonsten teilt sich das Modell die Stärken und Schwächen der anderen Ryzen-7-CPUs: Gut schneiden sie vor allem bei Programmen mit Multi-Thread-Unterstützung ab, die alle acht Kerne des Prozessors nutzen können. Wird nur ein einzelner Kern ausgelastet, sieht die Leistung deutlich schwächer aus. Auch bei Spielen merkt man dem Ganzen an, dass die Software einfach noch nicht für die neue Technologie optimiert wurde, weshalb Intel weiterhin eine bessere Spiele-Performance bietet. Zudem müssen die Mainboard-Hersteller dringend mit mehr Produkten nachlegen, die dann hoffentlich auch über funktionierende BIOS-Software verfügen.more

RYZEN 7 1700X (AM4, 3.40GHz, Unlocked)

Unthinkable perf/CHF

This is a solid new CPU architecture, providing exceptional multi-threaded performance, solid single-threaded performance and very good power efficiency.

In my opinion the 1700X is the best value if you don't plan to overclock. The 1800X is slightly faster but significantly more expensive while the 1700 (at stock) is clearly inferior, especially in single-threaded (gaming) performance. Even if you plan to overclock, all Zen cores are limited by design and current process technology to at most 3.9-4.1GHz so the gains can be relatively limited, even if you have a lot of patience and a good quality chip.

Compared with Intel, the Xeons or the 6950X are faster if money is no object (>1500), the 7700K is faster for gaming but slower for most multithreaded tasks and the 2011 Intel platform offers more memory capacity (8xDIMM) but is significantly more expensive. All Kaby/Skylake overclock much better, but cannot compensate in multithreaded tasks.

To make it short: in this price range, if you only game, get the 7700K, if you also do other stuff, especially compilation/video encoding, consider the 1700X.

Be aware of some minor difficulties with the maturing platform before buying and be prepared to tune RAM clocks, update the BIOS a few times and adjust a few settings here and there. For example, Ryzen seems to operate better with an AMD power plan (instead of the default "balanced" provided by windows). You can easily find it online. Similarly, confirm that you have an AM4-compatible cooler. Ideally, plan for Ryzen-specific RAM.

My personal experience with this processor has been stellar until know, especially for compilation (ultrafast) and video encoding.

Solide hammer CPU!

AMD has RYZEN.
Die CPU ist super! Mit dem mastertool ist auch overclocking ein kinderspiel.
Einziges problem: BIOS steckt noch in den Kinderschuchen und viele Programme haben noch etwas Mühe damit die neue hardware voll zu nutzen. Wird aber sicher bald besser!

Ps. Ist auch nicht mehr ein AMD- Heitzkörper wie ältere CPU's.

Gut, aber alte und potentiell defekte Herstellerchargen bei Digitec an Lager

Zur CPU selbst muss ich nicht viel sagen. Rockt, super Preis/Leistung! Vom der QS vom AMD bin ich aber ziemlich enttäuscht.

Digitec scheint nur ältere Herstellerchargen auf Lager zu haben (älter als Mai 2017). Ryzen CPUs mit einem Herstellerdatum vor ca. Ende Juni 2017 haben einen Hardwarebug. Der macht sich zwar nur unter Linux bemerkbar, und auch da nur bei bestimmten Arten von Workloads. Aber gerade diese Workloads (Compiling von grossen Software-Packages und numerische Simulationen unter Linux) sind für mich ein Use-Case. Ich habe die CPU mehrmals austauschen lassen und gehofft, irgendwann mal ein Teil neueren Herstellungsdatums ohne Fehler zu erhalten. Vergeblich. Stand Dezember 2017 scheint Digitec nur "alte" und damit fehlerbehaftete CPUs auf Lager zu haben. Darum habe ich den CPU-Tausch jetzt - widerwillig - mit AMD direkt aufgegleist.

Auf der Positiv-Seite ist zu vermerken, dass der Support von Digitec 1a war. Habe mich als Kunde fair behandelt gefühlt. Aber wenn die Batch-Nummern der CPUs nicht im System geführt werden (Hint an Digitec: vielleicht sollte man das mal machen...) kann auch der motivierteste Support-Mitarbeiter nix machen ausser immer wieder neue Teile zum Austausch zu schicken...

Fazit: Ein Stern Abzu für AMD wegen schlechter Qualitätssicherung, ein weiterer Stern Abzug für Digitec wegen alter Lagerbestände.
