AMD today opened pre-orders for the much anticipated second generation AMD Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 desktop processors globally.
Online retailers around the world are expected to begin taking pre-orders today while offline channels begin sales on 19 April.
Refreshing last year's Ryzen processors, AMD’s updated lineup is built on a 12 nm Zen+ architecture and promises optimised performance, a new lithography and a new X470 chipset to make the most of the higher clock speeds.
AMD's 2nd-generation Ryzen desktop processor lineup includes two 8-core, 16-thread models — the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 7 2700 and two 6-core, 12-thread models — the Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600. The 'X' labelled processors are the performance-focused chips here while the regular chips are rather engineered towards efficiency. Here's a breakdown of the processors alongside the Wraith
