Earlier this month, AMD officially released its second-generation Ryzen processors, which are based on a refined 12nm Zen+ architecture. Professional overclocker der8auer has already shown us that the processors have some huge overclocking potential, and he attempted to further exploit this good fortune by delidding a Ryzen 5 2600. As is typically the case when der8auer puts processors on the operating table, he coaxed the processor's heat spreader up to a temperature of around 180 degrees, after which he was able to pop the lid off. A temperature range of 170 to 180 degrees is where Indium melts, which is the solder that AMD uses on its processors. Once he was able to scrape off the Indium... Read more...
We are still a couple of weeks away from AMD launching its second generation Ryzen desktop processor lineup, otherwise known as Pinnacle Ridge. Leading up to the launch, however, it appears that a few customers have been able to get their paws on some of the new chips through online retailers turning a blind eye to embargoes. This has led to some early benchmarking and overclocking analysis. Before we get to all that, let's briefly go over the architecture and clear up any potential confusion that might exist. Pinnacle Ridge is an optimized version of AMD's first generation Ryzen processors (Summit Ridge), and is built on a smaller manufacturing process (12 nanometers versus 14 nanometers). AMD...

Another day, another performance leak. This time it one of AMD's upcoming "Pinnacle Ridge" processors that showed up on Geekbench, a popular browser-based benchmarking site that examines both single-core and mulit-core performance metrics. The processor in question is AMD's Ryzen 5 2600, an as-yet unreleased CPU and the next generation successor to the existing Ryzen 5 1600. In case you have not been following, Pinnacle Ridge is slated to launch in March, according to recent reports. Take that with a grain of salt, however, as back in September there were reports saying Pinnacle Ridge would launch in February. It is also expected that Pinnacle Ridge processors will be built on a 12-nanometer... Read more...

Among the new products on tap from AMD is a 2nd generation Ryzen line of chips based on the company's 12-nanometer Zen+ architecture. One of those processors, the Ryzen 5 2600, has been leaked in a SiSoftware SANDRA database entry, along with a next generation X470 chipset motherboard from ASUS.
