Today we take a look at the flagship 'Summit Ridge' CPU, the Ryzen 7 1800X. It features 4.8 Billion transistors based on Globalfoundaries' 14nm fabrication process using FinFET '3D' Transistor technology. There are 8 'real' cores (as opposed to modules) that features SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) similar to Intel's Hyperthreading, providing a total of 16 threads of computing power.
