AMD officially announces Ryzen 2000 processors

AMD introduced Ryzen processors past year to regain its lost market share in the High-End Desktop (HEDT) segment. All the new CPU's use the Zen+ architecture based on the 12nm manufacturing process. The latest flagship CPU directly replaces both the Ryzen 7 1800X and the 1700X, which were released past year. The Ryzen 7 2700X performed a hair better than the Ryzen 5 2600X, reaching 5.884GHz with the core voltage set at 1.76V. We know their prices, performance ratings, clock speeds and thread counts.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X has a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.2GHz and he was able to push it to 5883 MHz (5.8 GHz) clock-speed across all 6 Cores using liquid nitrogen as a cooling method. The top-of-the-line second generation AMD Ryzen CPU model is reportedly going to be priced at $329, which will be a relatively great bargain when compared to the 1700X and the 1800X, now priced at $399 and $499, respectively. The memory kits used when testing gaming performance are unfortunately inconsistent across the tests, but graphs show it directly competing with the Core i7 8700K in Doom, even though the Intel CPU had faster RAM (DDR4 3600 compared to DDR4 3200).

The Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 in 8 core and 6 core configurations respectively will sell for Rs 24,490 and Rs 15,490. The particular CPU is a direct competitor to Intel's Core i5-8500.

Both results look promising, especially when the previous generation AMD Ryzen 7 1800X went up as high as 5.8GHz thanks to Der8auer's expert tuning. All new CPUs will run on the AMD X470 chipset, with support for StoreMI technology.

As an added bonus to buyers, AMD has announced that they will be including a free "Wraith" cooler with each CPU. The processor has a 95 W TDP and can be cooled by the Wraith Spire cooler, included in the box. Existing 300 series boards will be compatible with the new CPUs with a simple firmware upgrade in the BIOS.

All of the new chips will be available this April and you can pre-order them from your favorite retailer now.
