The day has finally come and AMD's 2nd Generation Ryzen processors are available worldwide. The new CPUs are the Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and Ryzen 5 2600, with the Ryzen 7 parts being 8 core/16 thread processors and the Ryzen 5 are 6 core/12 thread chips. The MSRPs span from $199 for the Ryzen 5 2600 to just $329 for the Ryzen 7 2700X.

The CPUs are being manufactured on a new 12 nm LP process that should allow for higher clock speeds than the first generation of Ryzen processors, but there are more improvements than this. The Zen+ architecture has increased IPC compared to Zen and has improved cache and memory latencies, Precision Boost 2, and XFR 2 to further improve performance. (Some features require the new X470 chipset, though the CPUs themselves will still work on X370, following a BIOS update.) The Ryzen Master Utility has also seen an update to unlock new overclocking capabilities.
