AMD will not be releasing the flagship successor to the Ryzen 7 1800X according to the new leaks, with the highest-end Ryzen 7 2000-series processor landing in the hands of the new Ryzen 7 2700X.
AMD will be retailing the Ryzen 7 2700X at just $369, making it cheaper than the $370 MSRP on the Intel Core i7-8700K, while offering more cores. AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X will be an 8C/16T processor, competing against Intel's best gaming processor in the Core i7-8700K with 6C/12T of processing power.
We are expecting X470-based motherboards to be launched on April 19 according to the new rumors, so we should expect many more detailed on the new Ryzen CPUs and 400-series chipset in the coming weeks.
