AMD Ryzen 2000 CPUs and APUs are just a few days away from launch, however, before these CPUs could get released benchmarks for Ryzen 2000 have started to pour in and one such gaming benchmark for AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has popped up online.

The above LN2 OC might be academically interesting but we'd like to see how these new Ryzen 2000 processors overclock using more common-or-garden air and hybrid coolers.

AMD also announced a new X470 chipset, though the new processors are compatible with existing socket AM4 motherboards as well (with a BIOS update). "Every 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ 7 processor now comes with an illuminated Wraith cooler", the company announced in its main Ryzen webpage.

The new chips are also now available for pre-orders on AMD's website, since Friday, April 13. The case for Ryzen 2nd Gen is particularly interesting, as AMD has switched over to the 12nm process. This is due to smart turbo functionality, low memory and cache latency and better Inter-core communication.

Vikings, Eric Kendricks Agree to 5-Year, $50 Million Extension
Kendricks was selected in the 2nd round (45th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft and went on to receive All-Rookie honors that season. The Minnesota Vikings announced LB Eric Kendricks has signed a contract extension with the club.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, this CPU has a base clock of 3.7GHz and a boost clock of 4.3GHz.

KitGuru Says: Ryzen 2nd Gen is just around the corner. The latest flagship CPU directly replaces both the Ryzen 7 1800X and the 1700X, which were released previous year.

Intel's new i7 8700k, which sells for about $350, has only six cores, in comparison, as Engadget pointed out. Users who would not be using all the multi-threading capability of the new 2700 series could instead pick up one of the new Ryzen 5 2600 chips, instead.

The AMD Ryzen 7 2600X appears have to clocked in at a slightly lower 5.882GHz, which is still impressive nonetheless given that this CPU is only meant to achieve 4.2GHz on a single-core. The 6-core/12-thread Ryzen 5 2600X hit 5.882GHz. The 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at United States dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively. The 2700X also had its voltage core set to a whopping 1.76V, while the 2600X needed a little bit extra, with a 1.768V core voltage. For those willing to hold out for now, the Zen 2 design is expected to come out next year.
