AMD announced 2nd generation Ryzen desktop processors

AMD is hoping to continue the disruptive streak it began in the PC market previous year by announcing the upcoming launch of its second-generation Ryzen desktop processors. Four models have been announced, two Ryzen 5 and two Ryzen 7, all of which are available for pre-order now and go on sale April 19. With a very competent cooler that comes with the CPU as standard, and the inclusion of their latest overclocking software that makes the process as user-friendly as possible, it certainly looks like AMD are trying to bring overclocking out of the enthusiast realm into more of a mainstream arena. "The first processors on the new 12nm process technology". While we can't talk about performance numbers or anything aside from a surface-level overview just yet, we do have information on the processor specifications and prices to share.

"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 incredible experience for the most demanding users".

Ryzen 7 2700X will feature 8 cores / 16 threads, with a clock speed of 4.3/3.7 Ghz (boost/base) and 20MB of Smart Prefetch Cache. The TDP is 105W. It's priced at $329.

Back at CES 2018, AMD stated that the 2nd Gen Ryzen processors will have lower power consumption despite being clocked at slightly higher speed than their predecessors alongside couple of other cache, and latency improvements.

When you consider the price point at which these processors are entering the market, their performance and the additional of a highly competent cooler - this is going to cause some major disruption for Intel.

For the budget conscious, there's a six-core Ryzen 5 2600, which comes at a price of $199. The 2600X costs $229 and provides a 3.6 GHz base clock with a 4.2 GHz boost, with 19MB of cache and a 95W TDP. 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. Again, we don't know a ton about the new chipset and how it differs from X370. This chipset comes with a free download of the new AMD StoreMI storage acceleration technology to combine the speed of an SSD with the capacity of a hard drive into a single, fast, easy-to-manage drive.
