Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X Overclock to 5.88 GHz

Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X Overclock to 5.88 GHz

All the new 2nd gen Ryzen chips so far are built on AMD's 12 nanometer Zen+ architecture, which is an update of the platform the first generation Ryzen chips were built on. While the Ryzen 7 2700X has been pushed on the flagship MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC, the Ryzen 7 2600X has been used on a MSI X470 Gaming Plus motherboard.

Out of the box, the upcoming second-generation Ryzen 7 has been clocked at 4.3GHz, with that top speed only being delivered on one of the processor's cores.

TSAIK's overclocking is hardly the most practical approach to squeezing more out of a CPU, though, unless you happen to have a tank of liquid-nitrogen spare, the adequate tools to handle it, and the cojones to risk some brand new computer hardware. The Ryzen 7 2700 has similar Core/thread combo but with a lower clock speed and hence a lower TDP of 65W.

Aside from the performance, the 2700X can be overclocked to 5.8 GHz across all cores.

Chemical inspectors launch probe in Syria after Western strikes
United States envoy to the OPCW, Kenneth Ward, said: "It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site". Mr Trump already made clear his commitment to further hit Syria, should Mr Assad attempt to use chemical weapons again.

However, gaming benchmarks weren't the only comparison between the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and 1700 as the benchmarks also compare the two in terms of essentials, app-startup, video conferencing, internet browsing and more.

AMD is also releasing new models for its lower-end variants, which will include a second gen six-core Ryzen 5 2600 CPU, reportedly priced at just $199.

AMD has also launched the compatible AMD X470 chipset that supports the AM4 socket on the new processors and several designs will be sold by ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. 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.

What's really interesting here is that at 1080p, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X was able to come really close to the Intel i7 8700K. The 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at United States dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively. 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.
