AMD's Ryzen 2 chips are topping 5.8GHz when overclocked

The Ryzen 2000 desktop lineup comprises two Ryzen 5 processors and two Ryzen 7 chips, which sport six and eight cores respectively.

Last month, we shared the specifications and the first official gaming benchmarks from AMD for its upcoming 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs. AMD is scheduled to launch the new Zen chips on April 19. While AMD claimed that the Ryzen 7 2700X CPU would be around 7.7% slower in a variety of games than the i7 8700K, El Chapuzas Informatico claims that AMD's new CPU is faster in Battlefield 1, Total War Warhammer 2 and Resident Evil 7 than the i7 8700K. All four new SKUs, namely the Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and the Ryzen 2600, are built on the company's 12nm Zen+ architecture, which means that they are only a slight upgrade to the original Ryzen CPUs. The Ryzen 5 2600X has 6 cores and 12 threads with 19MB Smart Prefetch Cache. The processor has a 95 W TDP and can be cooled by the Wraith Spire cooler, included in the box. Clocked between 3.9GHz and 3.4GHz, it's expected to compete with Intel's Core i5-8500. All new CPUs will run on the AMD X470 chipset, with support for StoreMI technology. It's also worth noting that AMD is also giving a free "Wraith" cooler with every CPU. The older 300-series motherboards are also compatible with the new processors. The Ryzen 7 2700X is running with a BCLK of 101.02MHz and a multiplier of x58.25. The 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at United States dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively.

Vodafone-Idea may give pink slips to 5000 employees
The sole reason for taking these precautionary measures is to make the business extremely efficient after the merger. Vodafone and Idea approved their merger in May 2017 something that is expected to close by May 2018.

According to local product listings, the Ryzen 2000 processors will be available from 19 April 2018.
