AMD's new Ryzen 2000 CPUs - South African pricing

As reported by Engadget, the second generation AMD Ryzen CPUs will provide a slight improvement over its predecessors, which will in turn give a better value for those who are just starting out and those who want to upgrade their systems.

The new Ryzen 7 2700X is an 8 core 16 threads CPU with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 4.3 GHz.

The Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 in 8 core and 6 core configurations respectively will sell for Rs 24,490 and Rs 15,490.

All 2nd gen Ryzen desktop processors ship with the new AMD Wraith cooling unit, which AMD says offers improved thermal performance over the Wraith Max, a more compatible fan profile and enhanced lighting capabilities with per-RGB controls. According to a report from Kotaku, the top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 2700X will include a "Prism LED" cooler, which comes with a multi-colored LED backlight. All the new CPU's use the Zen+ architecture based on the 12nm manufacturing process. The Ryzen 7 2700 has similar Core/thread combo but with a lower clock speed and hence a lower TDP of 65W.

There's also 2 new Ryzen 5 CPUs that were launched alongside the Ryzen 7 CPUs.

The Ryzen 5 2600X isn't far behind, with a BCLK of 101MHz and the same x58.25 multiplier offering an overall frequency less than 2MHz slower than its bigger sibling. The particular CPU is a direct competitor to Intel's Core i5-8500.

As an added bonus to buyers, AMD has announced that they will be including a free "Wraith" cooler with each CPU.

The Ryzen 7 2700X is priced at United States dollars 329 (INR 21,452), whereas the Ryzen 7 2700 is priced at USD 299 (INR 19,496).
