Slides from AMD's Ryzen 2000 launch leaked, giving us a look at the finalized specifications and pricing. One surprise is that the top model will be the Ryzen 7 2700X, it appears the rumored Ryzen 7 2800X will not be part of the launch lineup. The Ryzen 7 2700X will have eight cores, sixteen threads, a 3.7GHz base clock, 4.35GHz Turbo, and a 105W TDP. Its $369 price tag is roughly comparable with the Intel Core i7 8700K.
The new Wraith Prism HSF is exclusively bundled with the 2700X, the other models feature the Wraith Spire or Wraith Stealth coolers.
According to internal benchmarks from AMD, the Ryzen 7 2700X is about 7.7 percent slower on average in video games than the Intel Core i7-8700K flagship. In comparison with the Ryzen 7 1800X, you can expect about 5 percent higher performance from the 2700X.
There are also some slides about the new 400-series chipsets. One new feature here is Precision Boost Overdrive, another intelligently-controlled performance feature that promises to crank up the maximum Boost frequencies even higher than XFR2. You can check more slides at VideoCardz.
