First third-party gaming benchmarks for AMD Ryzen 7 2700X surface online

The company is now launching the second generation of its high-performance CPUs and is in a better place than ever to keep the pressure on Intel. 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 AMD Ryzen 7 2600X appears have to clocked in at a slightly lower 5.882GHz, which is still impressive nonetheless given that this CPU is only meant to achieve 4.2GHz on a single-core.

AMDThe 2nd Generation of AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors promise to offer improved performance and advanced features provide faster, smoother computing experiences, and are now available for preorder. The new processors are led by the company's latest flagship CPU, the eight-core Ryzen 7 2700X. AMD claims the new processor lineup offers world's highest multithreaded performance among desktop processors in its class. The Ryzen 5 2600X has 6 cores and 12 threads with 19MB Smart Prefetch Cache.

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 2700X comes with 20 MB "Smart Prefetch Cache" (of which L2 cache is 4 MB and the L3 cache is 16 MB) and has a 105W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Meanwhile, TSAIK was able to achieve an overclock of 5.884GHz with a core voltage of 1.76V on a MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard. Existing 300 series boards will be compatible with the new CPUs with a simple firmware upgrade in the BIOS. AMD's new Ryzen CPUs are now available for pre-order, will launch on April 19th, and even though the first reviews will go live on April 17th, it appears that the first third-party gaming benchmarks have surfaced. It's still a six-core processor with 12 threads, and capable of a max boost speed of 3.9 GHz.
