Ryzen

Ryzen is a brand of x86-64 microprocessors designed and marketed by Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) for desktop, mobile and embedded platforms based on the Zen microarchitecture and its successors. It consists of central processing units marketed for mainstream, enthusiast and workstation segments and accelerated processing units (APUs) marketed for mainstream and entry-level segments and embedded applications. Ryzen is especially significant for AMD, since it is a completely new design, and since it marks the corporation's return to the high end desktop CPU market. AMD's competitor Intel has controlled this section of the market for almost ten years, back when Intel released the Conroe/Core microarchitecture, which overtook AMD's Athlon 64 as the cutting edge of performance in the market.
