AMD’s Ryzen 7 2700X with Boost Up to 4.2 GHz
For a while, AMD is preparing the second generation (or slightly renewed first generation) of its Ryzen processor for desktop computers. Futuremark’s 3DMarka has now found a second-generation Ryzen processor.
This is a Ryzen 7 2700X processor with a total of eight cores, sixteen threes, 16 MB of L3 cache and 4 MB of L2 cache memory. The processor has a 95W TDP, and the base workstation of the 300 MHz processor is higher compared to the first generation of this processor (Ryzen 7 1700X) and is 3.7 GHz, and thanks to support for the XFR 2.0 (eXtended Frequency Range), it is possible reaching 4.2 GHz (the maximum at the Ryzen 7 1700X model is 3.9 GHz).
It is still known that the entire second generation of the Ryzen processor and the Ryzen 7 2700X will be based on a slightly upgraded Zen + architecture that includes a 12-nanometer production process and technologies such as XFR 2.0 and Precision Boost 2.0. All that is said is still unofficial information that should be confirmed in April, when the Ryzen 7 2700X is expected in the market.
