AMD Shows off Ryzen+ and Pre-Orders


We are here to show you what AMD's Ryzen 2nd generation CPUs look like and to tell you a bit about their new ecosystem. The actual product review is under NDA, and we are only allowed to show you the following slides and some pictures we took of the new products. Just like during AMD's previous CPU launches, you are able to pre-order the new CPUs.




AMD is launching four processors, and the top dog, Ryzen 7 2700X comes in at $329 with 8 cores and 16 threads with a 4.3GHz max frequency. It will also come with 20MB of cache and the new Wraith Prism CPU cooler. The Ryzen 7 2700 comes in with the same core and thread count as the 2700X, but with a 200Mhz lower boost clock and a $299 price tag.





The Ryzen 5 2600X and 2600 come with 6 cores and 12 threads, 19MB of cache, and 4.2Ghz and 3.9Ghz boost clocks respectively. They are priced at $229 and $199. If the Ryzen 5 2600 is anything like the Ryzen 5 1600, it will be one of the most popular Ryzen 2nd Generation CPUs.




The new platform also offers a new chipset for the motherboard. The X470 motherboards will work with the new 2000 series CPUs very well, and AMD has had vendors improve power infrastructure for higher clocks. We will take a look at a few boards on the last page, and see what they are hiding under the hood. There are many new exciting motherboards that will hit the market, but we can't share too much with you right now.




The new X470 motherboards also offer StoreMI technology, which looks to be AMD's answer to Optane. Judging by the slide, I can say that it's designed to speed up mass storage devices with faster types of storage to improve things such as game load times.
