AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm Based Chips Are Officially Coming In April

AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm based chips will officially be coming out in April 2018. While we first speculated that the chips will be coming out in March it has now been made official that the chips will be coming out in April instead which does make sense if it is to be revealed at CES 2018. It will be interesting to see what these AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm based chips will have to offer.

The 12 nm should allow for more than 10% better performance which might not seem like much but if you were thinking about getting a new CPU in the upcoming few weeks then you might want to hold on a bit longer and see what AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm based chips have to offer before making a purchase decision.

Though the number of cores and threads are not going to change, you can count on getting higher clock speeds out of these upcoming AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm based chips. James Prior also talked about the upcoming chips and the following is what he had to say:

“it’s not an area statement, it’s a power efficiency statement. The area is not going to change much, but the ability for us to manipulate the frequency-voltage curve has improved.”

Even though the core count will remain the same, there will be new and improved features that will enable the user to get more out of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm based chips. These features include Precision Boost 2 and Extended Frequency Range (XFR) 2. These features will give you more value for money than before. While all this seem great on paper we are still waiting to see the actual performance.
