AMD Ryzen 3 2300X And Ryzen 5 2500X Officially Part Of 2nd-Gen Ryzen Family

With Ryzen CPUs, AMD has been expanding its CPU portfolio and now AMD has added Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X to its portfolio. However, these CPUs are not available at retail and will remain OEM exclusives.

The first OEM to use these AMD Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X will be ACER and these CPUs will be featured in Acer’s “NITRO 50 N50 – 100 – UR 11” desktop system.

The AMD Ryzen 3 2300X features 4 cores and 4 threads with a base clock of 3.5 GHz and a boost clock of 4 GHz. Furthermore, the CPU features 10 MB cache and a 65 W TDP.

On the other hand, AMD Ryzen 5 2500X features 4 cores and 8 threads with a base clock of 3.5 GHz and a boost clock of 4 GHz. This CPU features 10 MB cache with a 65 W TDP.

Both of the CPUs feature Precision Boost 2 and XFR 2 support. For those who don’t XFR2 is a tech that allows for overclocking of CPUs, however, the overclocking is automatic and the user doesn’t have to do anything. Also, the overclocked frequency will depend on how good the colling is for the system.

Furthermore, both AMD Ryzen 3 2300X And AMD Ryzen 5 2500X are based on the 12 nm process node and support DDR4-2933 RAM.

Speaking of AMD Ryzen CPUs, these are not the only addition to Ryzen’s CPU portfolio as a leak has made its way on the internet revealing AMD will be bringing Ryzen 2800X with 10 cores and will be a direct competitor to Intel’s Core i9 CPUs.

The leak reveals the benchmark results for the alleged AMD Ryzen 2800X that will feature 10 cores and 20 threads. Speculations have been making rounds on the internet that AMD hold off the release of its 2800X CPU to see what Intel brings to the table.

However, given that it is just a leak, take it with a grain of salt as AMD is yet to officially announce the Ryzen 2800X. But, it will be interesting to see how Intel will counter if AMD actually brings Ryzen 2800X with 10 cores.
