Two of AMD's upcoming second-generation Ryzen processors have already been overclocked to 5.8GHz and beyond, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that all of the cores on each chip were enabled while it happened.

The 2nd generation AMD Ryzen processors use the same Zen architecture as the previous one that AMD claims allowed it to push for a staggering 52 per cent increase in the Instructions Per Clock, compared to the previous architecture. The Ryzen 7 2700X performed a hair better than the Ryzen 5 2600X, reaching 5.884GHz with the core voltage set at 1.76V. The 2700X comes with 20 MB "Smart Prefetch Cache" (of which L2 cache is 4 MB and the L3 cache is 16 MB) and has a 105W TDP (Thermal Design Power).

To put those results into perspective, the Ryzen 7 2700X has a maximum boost frequency of 4.3GHz via Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR2), while the Ryzen 5 2600X tops out at 4.2GHz.

What's really interesting here is that at 1080p, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X was able to come really close to the Intel i7 8700K.

The Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 in 8 core and 6 core configurations respectively will sell for Rs 24,490 and Rs 15,490. The 2700 model will come with single-color Spire LED cooler, while the 2600X and 2600 will come with regular "Wraith" coolers. In any case, according to this review, the 2600 was able to reach 4099 MHz on all of its cores using 1.45 V, on the MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard. Interested buyers may also pre-order the new processors on the company's website. Top manufacturers including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI will soon announce the new motherboards with the x470 chipset. The 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at Dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively. AMD's new Ryzen CPUs are now available for pre-order, will launch on April 19th, and even though the first reviews will go live on April 17th, it appears that the first third-party gaming benchmarks have surfaced.
