Last week AMD launched its 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs, with the Ryzen 7 2700X at the top of the stack.

The lack of a 2800X led many to speculate for reasons why, but for AMD it is because the 2700X and Ryzen 7 2700 cover ...

Among the improvements AMD made for its 2nd Generation Ryzen CPUs was a better integrated memory controller.
