The company AMD introduced a new generation of processors line Ryzen. The 8-core flagship Ryzen 7 2700X will cost $ 330. It comes to replace last year’s 1800X and 1700X. The base frequency of the processor is 3.7 GHz, in turbo mode – 4.3 GHz (3.6 and 4 GHz for the outdated model).
The budgetary 6-core Ryzen 5 2600 was estimated at $ 200. It operates at frequencies from 3.4 to 3.9 GHz and, with certain reservations, can be positioned as an alternative to Core i5-8500 from Intel.
New AMD processors are built on a 12-nm Zen + architecture, a serious upgrade is expected next year.
How successful the Ryzen second generation processors will be, later field tests will be shown.
