AMD Wraith Cooler Review – Other AMD News

The Wraith Cooler is AMD’s most significant news for today but it isnt their only news. As well as refreshing the high end box cooler they are also tweaking the models provided with other processors. With Wraith designed for 125w parts it is clearly overkill for 95w and below so the coolers above will be bundled with those parts… three of which are new CPUs.

We have a new Godavari part in the A10-7860K which runs up to 4GHz and is an unlocked 65w model (4 CPU cores , 8 GPU cores). There is the dual core A6-7470K and something interesting to see, the Athlon X4 845. This is our first glimpse at Excavator and this quad core CPU is a 65w part with 3.8GHz speed. Both the 7860K and X4 845 use the larger of the two red fan, near silent coolers.

AMD also noted in their pre-launch presentation that they are now starting to see manufacturers refresh their motherboards to support USB 3.1 Gen 2 and M.2 parts. Ensuring that the AM2+ and AM3+ platform are competitive with Intel on the feature front.

AMD Wraith Cooler Review – Conclusion

Let’s get the minor disappointments out of the way first. The first being the lack of new FX model. It would have been nice if AMD had managed to squeeze a little extra out of the 8000 series, maybe a 8390 at 4.5GHz (peak) but that isnt the case. For now they seem happy to stick with the older model, knowing that other users are catered for by the 9000 series. In a way it’s also a shame that the Wraith cooler isn’t available to buy on its own, only with select models. Hopefully that changes as production increases.

As far as the product itself goes, the CPU as we have seen before is a competitive mainstream, reaching to enthusiast, model. With 8 cores running at up to 4.3GHz it has no issue running demanding applications or running the latest games. As our testing showed, pair it with a mainstream GPU and it is more than capable of running the likes of Star Wars Battlefront at resolutions above HD.

The cooler is of course the focus of today’s article and as can be seen in the video above, it is super quiet. It significantly improves on AMD’s previous solution and essentially removes the need for the average power user to buy a third party cooler in the sub $50 range. Probably the worst thing we can say about it is that the LED seems a bit pointless in its current location. On the top of the cooler would have worked better for most builds as the side location is quite hidden when in a case. The build quality is good though, the fan near silent and thermal readings ideal.
