First third-party gaming benchmarks for AMD Ryzen 7 2700X surface online

All new CPUs will run on the AMD X470 chipset, with support for StoreMI technology. 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.

The second gen Zen CPUs, led by the eight-core flagship Ryzen 7 2700X, are scheduled to launch on April 19. The CPUs are up for pre-orders on major etailers around the world, starting from April 13th, while the sale starts from April 19, 2018.

KitGuru Says: Ryzen 2nd Gen is just around the corner.

According to MLB's website , the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour . DeGrom struck out 12 in 7 1/3 innings, the longest outing by a Mets pitcher this season.

To give you a better idea of just how impressive these overclocks are, the Ryzen 7 2700X can achieve a maximum boost frequency of 4.3 GHz on a single-core with the help of Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR2). For the ones that AMD announced on Friday in a press release, two of them will have eight cores and 16 threads each, while the other two have six cores and 12 threads.

The AMD Ryzen 1800X is the top of the line CPU that AMD has to offer right now, that is before the AMD Ryzen 2700X comes out in a few days. The new model is also competitively priced to go against Intel's Core i7-8700K, which is being sold for around $350.

For $229, the Ryzen 5 2600x offers six cores with 12 threads, at a brisk 4.2 GHz max boost clock speed. Famed overclocker der8auer previously reached 5905 MHz using a Ryzen 5 1600X. The base clock speed has been increased to 3.7 GHz from 3.6 GHz, while the boost speed has jumped from 4 GHz to 4.3 GHz. All four new SKUs, namely the Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and the Ryzen 2600, are built on the company's 12nm Zen+ architecture, which means that they are only a slight upgrade to the original Ryzen CPUs. 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.
