Now is a fantastic time to build a high-end AMD Ryzen system. Yes, Intel just recently launched its 9th generation Core processor family culmination in the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900K, and that chip is sure to be a beast. However, we spotted AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X selling for as low as $279.99, and you shave another $30 off if you bundle it with a motherboard. The Ryzen 7 2700X is the flagship part in AMD's second generation Ryzen lineup in the mainstream desktop CPU category. It has the same number of cores and threads as the Core i9-9900K, and is clocked at 3.7GHz to 4.3GHz, with 20MB of smart... Read more...
Intel and its hired benchmarking gun, Principled Technologies, have come under fire for the benchmarking methodology used to validate the Core i9-9900K as the "world's fastest gaming processor." At the heart of the issue is the latter's decision to enable Game Mode on AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X, resulting in a performance disparity upwards of 50 percent compared to the Core i9-9900K. Principled Technologies has since retested the Ryzen 7 2700X in Creator Mode, and while the new data still has the Core i9-9900K coming out ahead, the disparity isn't nearly as dramatic. As you might already know, the Core... Read more...
Intel made a splash when it finally introduced its oft-leaked 9th generation Core lineup consisting of three initial SKUs, the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K. The launch event was high on hype—Intel called the Core i9-9900K the best gaming chip in the world, and then showed off a set of gaming benchmarks performed by an outside company, Principled Technologies. Not without controversy, Principled Technologies has taken to defending its testing methodology, which showed the Core i9-9900K trouncing AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X. Let's back up a moment. In case you missed it, the Core... Read more...
Another day means another leak in the tech sector, this latest one related to Intel's unannounced 9th generation Core i9-9900K processor. This 8-core/16-thread chip has shown up in numerous leaks already. In this newest one, we get yet another glimpse of performance, with the Core i9-9900K being run through 3DMark's Time Spy benchmark. We'll get to the numbers in a moment, but first let's talk about the specs. If all the leaks and rumors end up being true, the Core i9-9900K will feature a 3.6GHz base clock and 4.7GHz all-core boost clock, and will boost to 5GHz when utilizing only one or two cores....

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,...

In case you haven't been paying attention to what's going on in the AMD world over the past week, the company's second-generation Zen+ Ryzen processors have been announced, and will begin shipping on April 19th. The family includes the Ryzen 5 2600/2600X and the Ryzen 7 2700/2700X. Given all the leaks over the past month, it should come as no surprise that there are more than a few of these processors in the hands of enthusiasts around the globe who are eager to see how far they can push them. User TSAIK has submitted CPU-Z results for overclocked examples of both the Ryzen 5 2600X and the... 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... 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. If the listings are accurate, (or were accurate, since they've been pulled offline), we know what kind of specs to expect. Starting at the top, the Ryzen 7 2700X (YD270XBGAFBOX) is an 8-core/16-thread processor with a 3.7GHz base... Read more...
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...
