AMD Ryzen powers to best PC component of 2017 award honours

AMD’s Ryzen line of processors beats rivals from Intel to take the coveted title PC Component of the Year at the Trusted Reviews Awards.

AMD’s Ryzen chips were first launched in March this year. In the intervening months they’ve changed the landscape of the processor market, bringing huge and relatively affordable multi-core power to PC gamers worldwide.

The Ryzen 3, 5 and 7 chips all received Recommended awards in their reviews, which is no mean feat in such a competitive market.

When Ryzen first launched, we said: “AMD has lived up to its promises and delivered quite simply the best high-performance CPU you can buy right now, for the money.”
