AMD 2nd Generation Ryzen 7 & 5 CPUs Price & Pre-Orders

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.

The Ryzen 2000 desktop lineup comprises two Ryzen 5 processors and two Ryzen 7 chips, which sport six and eight cores respectively.

While Intel Core processors have a maximum of 6 cores for the top model in the 8th gen series, the base model of the 2nd generation AMD Ryzen have 6 cores at one-third the price.

The Ryzen 7 2700X boasts a slightly increased base clock and boost clock speed. It comes with a Wraith Prism LED cooler included in the box. The Ryzen 7 2700 has similar Core/thread combo but with a lower clock speed and hence a lower TDP of 65W. All four new SKUs, namely the Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and the Ryzen 2600, are built on the company's 12nm Zen+ architecture, which means that they are only a slight upgrade to the original Ryzen CPUs.

The Ryzen 5 2600X isn't far behind, with a BCLK of 101MHz and the same x58.25 multiplier offering an overall frequency less than 2MHz slower than its bigger sibling.

The Ryzen 7 2700X is priced at United States dollars 329 (INR 21,452), whereas the Ryzen 7 2700 is priced at USD 299 (INR 19,496).

Additionally AMD has also launched their new X470 chipset motherboards which use the same AM4 mount as the previous gen X370 boards. Interested buyers may also pre-order the new processors on the company's website.

According to local product listings, the Ryzen 2000 processors will be available from 19 April 2018.
