AMD Ryzen 2700X is the second generation of AMD Ryzen CPUs that we are looking forward to. Here we have some performance numbers for what seems like the AMD Ryzen 2700X that reveals a higher clock speed as compared to the previous generation 1700X. This is due to the 12nm process and there are a couple of other features and performance benefits that you need to know about as well.
Not only does the AMD Ryzen 2700X feature higher clock speeds but better performance as well. The chip comes with 8 cores and 16 threads, so not much has changed on that end. On the other hand, you will note better single threaded performance as well as multi-threaded performance due to the refinement of the process, the shift to the 12nm process as well as minor tweaks that have been made here and there.
You can click here to check out some benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 2700X but keep in mind that official driver support for the chip is not out yet and this chip is unreleased. Keeping that in mind you can expect to see better performance once driver support for the AMD Ryzen 2700X is there. Other than that the latency of the new chip has also been decreased as compared to the older one.
The AMD Ryzen 2700X features XFR2 but you will need a 400 series motherboard in order to take advantage of the new feature. You need not worry though, if you are fine with running the chip at stock speeds then you can use your older motherboard as well but you will not be able to use the new XFR2 feature.
Let us know what you think about the AMD Ryzen 2700X and whether or not this is something that you might be interested in getting.
