Bad News For AMD: Ryzen 7 Getting Negative Reviews

Bad News For AMD: Ryzen 7 Getting Negative Reviews

Loop Capital Markets' Betsy Van Hees argued in a research report in early February that Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD)'s stock is "being priced to perfection," and there is zero room for any missteps in 2017.

Unfortunately for AMD's investors, the stock was trading lower by more than 2.50 percent on Thursday; there appears to be some early indications that its 2017 performance won't be as perfect as many had hoped.

Negative News

According to PC Gamer, AMD's much anticipated Ryzen 7 product isn't all it's cracked up to be. Specifically, the AMD's CPUs have been trailing Intel's performance over the past 10 years, and nothing has changed with the Ryzen 7.

PC Gamer argued further argued that the Ryzen 7 offers plenty of power but also an "underwhelming" gaming performance.

"With the huge strides in performance relative to the archaic (in CPU terms) FX-8370 Vishera chip, I expected Ryzen to achieve parity with Intel's X99 processors," PC Gamer wrote. "It gets there in the CPU-centric tests, but falls well short on gaming performance. And I don't really have a good explanation, other than the feeling I keep getting that Ryzen was pushed out the door before it was truly ready."

At last check, shares of AMD were down 5.55 percent at $14.13.
