Reviews and Overclocking Results Appearing for 2nd Generation Ryzen CPUs

AMD’s second-generation Ryzen CPUs – All the details

As an added bonus to buyers, AMD has announced that they will be including a free "Wraith" cooler with each CPU.

The above LN2 OC might be academically interesting but we'd like to see how these new Ryzen 2000 processors overclock using more common-or-garden air and hybrid coolers. According to a report from Kotaku, the top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 2700X will include a "Prism LED" cooler, which comes with a multi-colored LED backlight.

On Friday HEXUS reported that AMD had officially announced its Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 2000-series CPUs.

These four new models represent the new offers from AMD to give PC users "disruptive levels" of computing performance at their respective price points, which are generally much lower compared to the equivalent, closest-performing counterpart from Intel.

While the processors are available for pre-order, they will start shipping after April 19.

The second gen Ryzen now all come with AMD's SenseMI Technology and has been upgraded to perform significantly better than the first gen Ryzen chips.


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 latest flagship CPU directly replaces both the Ryzen 7 1800X and the 1700X, which were released a year ago.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X has a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.2GHz and he was able to push it to 5883 MHz (5.8 GHz) clock-speed across all 6 Cores using liquid nitrogen as a cooling method.

Turning to the 6C/6T AMD Ryzen 7 2600X, it was very slightly slower in GHz terms, at 5.882GHz.

The second gen Zen CPUs, led by the eight-core flagship Ryzen 7 2700X, are scheduled to launch on April 19.

AMD Ryzen 2nd generation is due to release imminently, but it appears the chip is already breaking overclocking records.

The new chips are available to preorder now at Amazon and Newegg. It's still a six-core processor with 12 threads, and capable of a max boost speed of 3.9 GHz. That's a bit faster than the 2700, for a power draw of 95 W. For those looking for a chip that's easier to cool down, both the Ryzen 7 2700 and the Ryzen 5 2600 only pulls 65 W. The 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at Dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively.
