Ryzen 2000 Specs and Pricing Possibly Leaked

Next month is when the Zen+ based and 12 nm fabricated Ryzen 2000 series of CPUs from AMD are supposed to launch, but it appears a lot of information about them has leaked out. Like all leaks, these should be considered rumors and not completely trustworthy, but time will tell, and it might not even be long. The leak comes as slides from and in the lower left corner the NDA information is stated, including the embargo date of March 15, which means, if this is true, we might see it confirmed just next week.

On to the details which show four Ryzen 2000 CPUs launching: 2600; 2600X, 2700; and 2700X. Like the 1000 series, the 2600(X) CPUs are 6 core/12 thread parts while the 2700(X) are 8 core/16 thread parts but they all come with a cooler, something that was not the case for the X-series CPUs before. You might notice the lack of a Ryzen 7 2800X, replacing the top-binned 1800X, which is fueling some speculation about when it might appear and what its specifications will be. According to the slides, the 2700X will have a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost of 4.35 GHz with a TDP of 105 W. Its price will be $369 while the 2700 will cost $299, have a base clock of 3.2 GHz and a boost of 4.1 GHz in its 65 W TDP. Naturally the 2600 and 2600X come in cheaper at $199 and $249 respectively, along with base clocks of 3.4 GHz and 3.6 GHz with boosts of 3.9 GHz and 4.25 GHz respectively. The TDPs for these two chips are 65 W and 95 W, with the 2600X naturally being the higher power part.

The 2000 series offers more than just higher speeds but also other internal improvements, such as Precision Boost 2, which has been talked about before. Precision Boost is meant to increase the clock speed of a CPU's cores depending on the workload and situation with Precision Boost 2 being able to do so at a finer level, extracting more performance from the chip. Also XFR 2 will push the CPUs to higher speeds, based on the chip's temperature, but the X-series processors have more than these two technologies to improve performance. Precision Boost Overdrive and XFR 2 Enhanced will bring the speeds even higher for these CPUs, but only on the X470 and B450 chipsets. If you want these features, you will need one of the newer motherboards and not one of the current 300-series motherboards with a BIOS update.

Also among the slides are a couple comparing performance between the 2700X and either the 1800X or Intel Core i7-8700K. According to these slides, the 2700X is on average just 7.7% below the 8700K in performance, at 1080P ultra with a GTX 1080, and on average 5% faster than the 1800X.

Personally I am looking forward to March 15, to see if these slides come out officially and what other information might come with them.
