AMD Ryzen 7 2700X overclocked to 5.8GHz

The Ryzen 5 2600X managed 5882 MHz using the same 58.25X multiplier with a BCLK of 101MHz.

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.

Additionally AMD has also launched their new X470 chipset motherboards which use the same AM4 mount as the previous gen X370 boards. We imagine overclocking savants will be able to push the AMD Ryzen 2nd generation processors even further given more time.

2700X - eight cores, 16 threads, 20MB of cache. 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 top-of-the-line second generation AMD Ryzen CPU model is reportedly going to be priced at $329, which will be a relatively great bargain when compared to the 1700X and the 1800X, now priced at $399 and $499, respectively.

The new Ryzen 7 2700X is an 8 core 16 threads CPU with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 4.3 GHz.

AMD finally opened up pre-orders for its second-generation of Ryzen chips last week, with the processors set to arrive this Thursday (April 19).

For $229, the Ryzen 5 2600x offers six cores with 12 threads, at a brisk 4.2 GHz max boost clock speed. 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 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at Dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively. It's still a six-core processor with 12 threads, and capable of a max boost speed of 3.9 GHz.

AMD Ryzen 2nd generation is due to release imminently, but it appears the chip is already breaking overclocking records. For those willing to hold out for now, the Zen 2 design is expected to come out next year.
