AMD announced 2nd generation Ryzen desktop processors

AMD announced 2nd generation Ryzen desktop processors

In multithread applications, such as video editing and rendering, the Ryzen 7 2700X sees around a 20% increase in speed over the 8700k.

The AMD Ryzen 2nd gen processor will go on sale later this month, the chip maker announced today.

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.

The top of the line 2700X has 8 cores and 16 threads, with 3.7GHz base clock and 4.3GHz boost clock speed.

AMD launches 2nd-gen Ryzen: $199 to $329, available April 19, pre-orders today

"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 unbelievable experience for the most demanding users". Again, details are minimal until the April 19th launch date, at which point we'll have much more to share with you. It's a significant step forward for AMD and its new (ish) Zen architecture. The TDP is 105W.

Along with having excellent performance, at an extremely competitive price, the second generation Ryzen processors will also come bundled with an extremely powerful AMD Wrath cooler, which will put many after market coolers to shame. It's priced at $329.

The flagship X470 Gaming Pro Carbon AC is definitely the cream of the crop when it comes to MSI's offer, coming with all the bells and whistles including some of those MSI-exclusive features like the DDR4 Boost, Steel Armor, Mystic Light RGB, as well as Intel Gigabit LAN, two M.2 slots, eight SATA ports, and more. While the Ryzen 5 2600X has base and turbo speeds of 3.6GHz and 4.2GHz with a 95W TDP, the Ryzen 5 2600 runs at speeds between 3.4GHz and 3.9GHz with a 65W TDP. AMD claims that the Wraith Prism LED is more powerful than standard stock coolers, and is calling this a $50-60 value (approximately Rs. 3,200 - 3,900).

Lastly, the 2600 has the same number of cores, threads and cache as the 2600X but 3.4GHz/3.9GHz base/boost clock speed and 65W TDP. Other than enabling new motherboard designs, perhaps the most intriguing feature of the X470 is AMD's new StoreMI technology, which lets you combine multiple SSDs and conventional hard drives into a single virtual volume and automatically assign files based on their storage speed requirements. Fortunately, you can still use the new CPU with the older AMD chipsets from previous year and the older CPU can run with the new X470 boards. We're not overly fond of manufacturers offering pre-orders before revealing performance numbers, as with the Threadripper launch past year, however we can at least discuss the details of each part.
