AMD's Ryzen 2 processors have been overclocked beyond 5GHz

The 2nd generation AMD Ryzen processors use the same Zen architecture as the previous one that AMD claims allowed it to push for a staggering 52 per cent increase in the Instructions Per Clock, compared to the previous architecture.

AMD has launched the 2nd generation Ryzen processors in India that start at Rs 12,990 and go all the way up to Rs 24,490.

Since AMD's Ryzen 2000 CPUs aren't available yet, we expect to see even higher clock speeds from other overclockers soon.

The Ryzen 7 2700X with its eight physical CPU cores performed a hair better than the Ryzen 5 2600X, reaching 5.884GHz with the core voltage set at 1.76V. The 2700X comes with 20 MB "Smart Prefetch Cache" (of which L2 cache is 4 MB and the L3 cache is 16 MB) and has a 105W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Sadly it was not an -out-of-the-box overclocking and it required liquid nitrogen cooling. While AMD claimed that the Ryzen 7 2700X CPU would be around 7.7% slower in a variety of games than the i7 8700K, El Chapuzas Informatico claims that AMD's new CPU is faster in Battlefield 1, Total War Warhammer 2 and Resident Evil 7 than the i7 8700K. The 2700 model will come with single-color Spire LED cooler, while the 2600X and 2600 will come with regular "Wraith" coolers. In addition to the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X, the company also announced non-X variants of both parts.

For $229, the Ryzen 5 2600x offers six cores with 12 threads, at a brisk 4.2 GHz max boost clock speed.

2600 - six cores, 12 threads, 19MB of cache. Existing 300 series boards will be compatible with the new CPUs with a simple firmware upgrade in the BIOS.
