second-gen CPU Ryzen 7

AMD announced the update of its desktop platform. The developers offer 2nd generation Ryzen chips, a new AMD X470 top chipset, and the technology to accelerate AMD StoreMI drives.  The new lineup includes two 8-core, 16 thread models and two 6-core, 12-thread models that feature improved performance and support for AMD SenseMI technology.

The big news is that the new flagship chip, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, is priced at just US$329. This chip replaces both the 1st-gen Ryzen 7 1700X (US$399) and 1800X (US$499), making considerably better value, particularly when you also factor in the free AMD Wrath Prism LED cooler included in the box. AMD’s Ryzen 7 was already threatening Intel’s dominance in the performance chip space, and AMD is now ramping up the pressure further.

Although AMD will reveal all the juicy details about the new chips when they start shipping on April 19, it did reveal that the 2nd-gen Ryzen chips will run on the new X470 AM4 chipset. One of the fundamental differences with the X400-series chipset is that it supports AMD’s SenseMI technology, which combines SSDs, spinning hard drives and RAM to boost overall system performance. The new chips will also work on X300-series motherboards with a BIOS update.

The press release states:

“AMD today announced global pre-orders are now available for the eagerly anticipated 2nd generation AMD Ryzen desktop processors, continuing to offer disruptive levels of compute performance at a variety of price points. Delivering more performance and innovative new features, the 2nd hen Ryzen desktop processors are built for PC gamers, creators, and hardware enthusiasts worldwide to offer faster, smarter and smoother computing experiences.”

For customers eagerly waiting for 2nd gen Ryzen desktop processors, etailers around the world are primed to begin taking pre-orders beginning April 13, at 9 a.m. EDT. On-shelf availability for these 2nd generation AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors is expected on April 19, and complete list of participating retailers can be found on
