At the start of the week, we brought you news that an overclocking enthusiast by the name of TSAIK was able to overclock both a Ryzen 5 2600X and a Ryzen 7 2700X to 5.8GHz using liquid nitrogen (LN2). At the time, we pondered what overclocking fiend Der8auer could achieve with the same chips. Well, it didn't take long, and Der8auer has set the bar higher with a 6GHz+ overclock on the Ryzen 7 2700X. He achieved this feat with the Ryzen 7 2700X installed in an ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero AMD X470 motherboard. As with other insane overclocks, Der8auer used LN2 to achieve his overclock,...

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... Read more...
In about a month, AMD will release its second generation Ryzen lineup with a handful of new processors based on its 12-nanometer Zen+ architecture, otherwise known as Pinnacle Ridge. Leading up to the launch, the upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X has been spotted in numerous leaks, the latest of which is an Amazon listing. Same goes for a few other second generation Ryzen chips.

AMD is set to releases its second generation Ryzen processors in mid-April, which will bring to the table faster clocks, performance optimizations, and presumably better power efficiency. As to the performance of the new parts, we have been getting sneak peeks through a series of leaks. The latest is an appearance by AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X processor on Geekbench. Assuming AMD is also prepping a Ryzen 7 2800X to hang its flagship banner in the mainstream consumer desktop processor category, the Ryzen 7 2700X will sit one rung below, effectively replacing the current generation Ryzen 7 1700X....

Late last week, we got a whiff of AMD's new high-end mainstream processor: the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is based off 12nm Zen+ architecture. Today, a new leak is giving us a further look at the processor complete with benchmarks. The processor is simply listed as a Ryzen 7 2000 Series by SiSoft SANDRA. The base clock for the processor checks in at 3.7GHz, but the boost clock is shown at a lofty 4.35GHz. For comparison, the Ryzen 7 2700X that we spied last week featured a base clock of 3.7GHz, a turbo clock of 4.1GHz, with a maximum clock of 4.2GHz using XFR 2.0 (eXtended Frequency Range). Given the... Read more...
