Without much fanfare, AMD added four new processors to its product portfolio. This includes the Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X, as well as the energy-efficient Ryzen 5 2600E and Ryzen 7 2700E models. The latter two models have lower clockspeeds and a TDP of 45W, 20W less than the non-E versions.

Interestingly, both the 2300X and 2500X feature a single enabled CCX, and not a 2+2 configuration as we saw with the previous generation. This results in lower L3 cache. The Ryzen 3 2300X is a quad-core, quad-threaded part with a 3500MHz base clock, 4000MHz Turbo, 8MB L3, and a 65W TDP.

Next we have the Ryzen 5 2500X, that part has four cores, eight threads, a 3600MHz base clock, 4000MHz Turbo, 8MB L3 cache and 65W TDP. The pricing of these parts is unknown. AMD says the parts are immediately available, via a new Acer Nitro PC.
