Ryzen 1st gen processors were a success although AMD said that it was there worst case scenario but soon after the release of new AMD APUs like Ryzen 2200G and Ryzen 2400G along with equipping laptops with APUs like Ryzen 2500U, now it’s time for AMD to release higher-end CPUs in the series. This time Ryzen 2700X has been spotted in a benchmark and were reported by Computerbase.
Ryzen 2700X looks very similar in specs when compared to the Ryzen 1700X but is now made on 12nm FinFet technology. Specs wise it has a base and boost clock of 3.7Ghz and 4.1Ghz respectively which is similar to the previous generation but higher than the Ryzen 1700X. So, a little boost is definitely some improvement but there are no benchmarks data which we have got on this.
The Rig on which it was tested consists of ASRock X370 Taichi motherboard which shows that these processors will work on the AM4 socket motherboards easily unlike Intel where we see a lot of socket changes and incompatibility. Also, the processor is having 8 cores and 16 threads with a TDP of 95Watts. It shows that AMD has managed to increase the performance(Which is obvious) without any increased power consumption.
