AMD announced 2nd generation Ryzen desktop processors

5 fast facts about AMD's Ryzen 2nd Gen CPUs

In a press release today, the company said all of its AMD Ryzen 2nd gen processors feature its new X470 chipset, which it escribes as "the most advanced, optimized, and efficient chipset to-date for socket AM4". AMD took a strong market position against Intel's 7th-generation Core CPUs with Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 in 2017, though Intel blunted some of that impact later in the year with the launch of the Core i7-8700K and its other 8th Generation CPUs. This time around, AMD has tightened up the pricing between the non-X and X models, while choosing not to produce a successor to the Ryzen 7 1800X. 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. Still, there is a new 12nm production process used to create the chips' integrated circuits, which could mean better performance, including less latency and reduced cooling requirements. All we know for sure right now are the basic specifications of the four new SKUs. The Ryzen 7 2700X has an MSRP of $329 excluding tax (£299.99 including VAT here) and will ship with the new RGB-enabled Wraith Prism stock cooler.

At the top of the line-up are the eight core, 16 thread Ryzen 7 processors: the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 7 2700.

The downside with the first round of Ryzen 7 chips is that the XFR boost is locked at an extra 100MHz. This 95W CPU has 3.6GHz base and 4.2GHz maximum boost frequencies, comes with the Wraith Spire cooler, and will retail for $229 excluding taxes or £209.99 including VAT in the UK. As you might expect, new motherboards supporting AMD's X470 chipset will also be available, being manufactured by popular brands like ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. AMD is also shipping its AMD Ryzen 2nd gen processors with Wraith coolers included. In AMD's internal testing with StoreMI enabled on a combination of a HDD and NVMe SSD, app loading was almost three times as fast, suggesting that it offers similar benefits to Apple's Fusion Drive. That won't be much of a problem for most enthusiasts, who typically need extra graphics horsepower for gaming or content creation, but it further confirms that the chip isn't a good choice to power a mainstream PC.

Here's the details on the other three parts going up today: the Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and Ryzen 5 2600. The Ryzen 5 2600 offer a 3.9GHz boost with a base of 3.4GHz.
