AMD puts Ryzen 2000 family up for pre

AMD puts Ryzen 2000 family up for pre

The new Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600 replace the equivalent 1000-series CPU models and promise improved performance across a range of PC workloads.

AMD has finally unveiled their 2nd-generation Ryzen line-up today, after weeks of leaks and rumors surrounding the hotly anticipated processors.

That's all we can talk about right now, you'll have to check back for our full review on April 19 for everything else you want to know about 2nd-gen Ryzen.

"Second generation Ryzen desktop processors take everything that made the original Ryzen so groundbreaking and makes it better", said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD, "[that means] great performance combined with advanced technology to deliver an awesome experience for the most demanding users".

The new Ryzen processors are manufactured using a new 12nm process, beating Intel's current 14nm offerings. Two of these CPUs roll with 8-core, 16-thread tech, and the other two are 6-core, 12-thread models. It has 20MB "Smart Prefetch Cache", which is 4MB L2 cache and 16MB L3 cache.

While you could build a very capable system with the Ryzen 7 2700X's default clock speed and stock cooler, one of the benefits of going with AMD over Intel is that the entire lineup is overclockable, so you can always get the maximum amount of power that your build allows if you're willing to tinker and troubleshoot. It's priced at $329. This cooler has "enhanced lighting capabilities with per-RGB controls", a "more compatible" fan profile, and better thermal performance than its predecessor, the Wraith Max. The Ryzen 7 2700's clock speeds are a significant jump from the first-generation model, as the boost goes up to 4.1GHz on a 3.2GHz base. It has a TDP of 95W, comes with the standard Wraith Spire cooler and is priced at $229. So the Ryzen 7 1800X can clock as high as 4.1GHz with a large cooler installed, rather than the 4GHz top stock speed with a more modest cooler installed.

For those building a new PC, motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock based on the new X470 chipset will be available at the same time as Ryzen 2000-series CPUs. Both Biostar's new motherboards are a part of the Racing series, so the ATX X470GT8 and the mini-ITX X470GTN come with all the usual features expected from the new AMD X470 chipset. Fortunately, you can still use the new CPU with the older AMD chipsets from past year and the older CPU can run with the new X470 boards.

More will be revealed on April 19. For customers eagerly waiting for 2nd gen Ryzen desktop processors, etailers around the world have begun taking pre-orders.
