AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 series has been launched but we did not get the entry-level AMD Ryzen 3 models and a recent leak shows that we will be getting them sometime soon. We have also got confirmations regarding multiple AMD Ryzen mobile chips and AMD Ryzen Threadripper. In the Ryzen 3 series, we have the AMD Ryzen 2100 as well as the Ryzen 3 2300X.
Other than that there is a new AMD Ryzen 5 2500X that seems to come with 4 cores and seems like the only quad-core CPU in the series. AMD is also working on other products like AMD Ryzen Mobile and we have the different versions that have been spotted, namely Ryzen 3 2000U, Ryzen 5 2600U and Ryzen 7 2800U.
There are new Threadripper versions coming out as well which include Threadripper 2900X, Threadripper 2920X and Threadripper 2950X. While these chips will be based on the 12nm process unlike the 14nm process based previous generation chips, you should not expect to see higher core counts. You can expect to see an increase in clock speeds.
Like the other 2000 CPUs these will not be AMD Zen 2 but AMD Zen+ instead. Seeing how well AMD Ryzen 2000 has performed as compared to the previous generation CPUs these upcoming CPUs should perform very well indeed.
Intel has released the mainstream series of CPUs along with accompanying motherboards and soon after AMD released the 2000 series CPUs. Keeping in mind Intel is way off with the 10nm process it will be interesting to see how Intel plans to take on AMD keeping in mind that AMD already has these CPUs in its arsenal. According to AMD CEO Lisa Su:
“We have 7nm GPU based on Vega that we’ll sample later this year. We have a 7nm server CPU that we’ll sample later this year. And then, obviously, we have a number of products that are planned for 2019 as well. So it’s a very, very busy product season for us. But we’re pleased with the sort of the execution on the product roadmap”.
Let us know what you think about these upcoming AMD CPUs and whether or not you are interested in getting any of these upcoming chips.
