AMD Celebrates 5 Years of Ryzen

AMD will be publishing a video to celebrate their 5th-year anniversary or Ryzen. The commemorative portal will have an interview with AMD’s John Taylor, Marketing Officer and Robert Hallock, Director of Technical Marketing.

UPDATE: The video is now live:

As a quick retrospect, AMD announced their Ryzen CPU back in 2016 followed by a release in March 2017. The Ryzen 7 1800X shook the PC scene by offering an 8-core CPU that slowly crept its way to the top spot of PC gaming builds in succeeding generations. In an era were Intel was selling $350 quad-core CPUs, AMD pushed the market to release $200 6-cores and the rest is history.

Intel went from minimal annual IPC increments to a 50% jump after Ryzen’s first-generation release. AMD also managed to kill off Intel’s HEDT product line and now currently offers the only HEDT option with AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs.

AMD has managed to dominate the CPU scene and is now after market shares with performance on their side. This does mean that AMD can now throw their weight a bit and have since increased in pricing and has displayed very questionable decisions in aftersales support.
