We’ve been waiting and waiting for this for awhile now: AMD officially launches their second-generation Ryzen CPUS. They’ve made them available here in Malaysia too. The star of the new lineup is undoubtedly the 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X, although all these processors are definitely amazing. These CPUs are using the world’s first 12nm process technology. This allows you up to 15% better gaming performance while delivering the best multiprocessing performance on a mainstream desktop PC. It also comes with features such as Precision Boost 2, Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR 2), Wraith Cooler, and more.
These new ‘Zen+’ Ryzen CPUs are capable of increased IPC and reduced cache and memory latencies compared to first-generation Ryzen processors. They can also analyse workload and computing environment, bringing out the best multiprocessing performance. Higher effective clock speeds throughout the new lineup improves the new Ryzens’ performance in games and creative and productivity programs. On top of that, these CPUs can also reach up to 20 percent faster content creation than similar processors.
“Last year we started changing the PC industry with the introduction of our first wave of Ryzen processors – delivering more performance, features, and choice to our customers than before. Our 2nd Gen Ryzen CPUs continue this pursuit by raising the standards for enthusiast gamers and creators,” says Jim Anderson of AMD. “With this launch we’re also demonstrating that we are just getting started, that we are committed to delivering a multi-generational roadmap of leadership high-performance processors that will drive innovation and competition into the industry for years to come.”
AMD’s new lineup comes with XFR 2 tech on AM4 platforms too; this ensures that there’s still solid performance even without premium cooling. They also feature soldered integrated heatspreaders for superlative thermal transfer and unlocked multipliers for simple, powerful overclocking control. The Ryzen Master 1.3 program allows per-core OCing with auto-identification of the fastest cores. AMD are also giving you a Wraith Cooler with every one of the new lineup.
The prices and full specifications of the new lineup are below:
