AMD Ryzen 2 Gets Release Date: Pre-Orders Open Now

AMD Ryzen 2000

AMD is also selling a Ryzen 7 2700 with identical specs except for a slightly lower 3.2GHz clock speed for $299. Performance is expected to be higher than the previous Wraith Spire, which is still the default cooler option for the Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600X. Expect the Ryzen 7 line to compete with Intel's Core i7-8700 and 8700K, while the Ryzen 5 lineup should compare favorably to Intel's Core i5-8400 and 8600K.

The chips will start shipping on April 19.

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. 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. It will only cost you $199. A 5 or even 10% difference between the two could be shrugged off, but a 20% lead is a substantial advantage for an offering that both comes with it's own cooler, and even with that, is still a cheaper solution. The actual cooler differs from one chip to another though as only the top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 2700X receives the new Wraith Prism RGB cooler while the rest received either Wraith Spire or Wraith Stealth. The fin profile has been adjusted to give better clearance to surrounding RAM sticks, and there's now direct heatpipe contact to the CPU.

Meanwhile, opposition parties including the Akali Dal and the BJP asked Sidhu to resign on moral grounds. The High Court said that Gurnam Singh did not die of cardiac arrest, but injury on the temporal region.

It's also worth mentioning that 2nd-gen Ryzen parts are built using a 12nm process and use the Zen+ architecture, so it's not a full architecture refresh, but we will be seeing some minor improvements along with gains relating to the shift from 14nm to 12nm. We're not allowed to say much about what's changed here yet, but we can tell you that AMD has done some fine-tuning on its XFR and Precision Boost implementations.

The launch of the new processors also marks the official release of AMD X470 chipset although the 2nd Gen Ryzen processors work perfectly fine with the existing AMD 4 motherboards with 300-series chipset. X470 will coexist alongside X370, B350 and A320 for now; AMD has not announced a "B450" or "A420" today. We are not entirely sure of the range of differences between the first and second generation Ryzen processors. However the unique feature here is StoreMI will move around the files on your system to ensure the most frequently-accessed files are on the fastest drives, a bit like a caching system, for maximum performance and the fastest game load times. 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.
