AMD unveils Ryzen 5 2500X, Ryzen 3 2300X, Ryzen 5 2600E and Ryzen 7 2700E processors

AMD has introduced two new Ryzen CPUs that are currently only available to OEM partners like Acer. The Ryzen 5 2500X and the Ryzen 3 2300X have a different internal structure than their predecessors, which makes them even faster depending on the application or game.

AMD unveiled its anticipated second generation of quad-core Ryzen processors for the AM4 socket along with two new energy-efficient versions of the E-Series on its existing processor models. Introducing a new Ryzen 5 2500X and Ryzen 3 2300X.

AMD has announced the new Ryzen 5 2500X 4-core / 8-wire and Ryzen 3 2300X 4-wire / 4-wire processors in order to finalize Ryzen’s second generation of these chips. The new Ryzen 2500X and 2300X have a 4+0 configuration, resulting in a complete CCX complex in the tool.

 

In other words, the 2500X has only 8 MB of L3 cache, although with the benefit of not having cores communicating via Infinity Fabric. The Ryzen 3 2300X has a clock frequency of 3.50 GHz with a 4.00 GHz turbo, while the Ryzen 5 2500X has a clock frequency of 3.60 GHz with a 4.00 GHz turbo. The TDP of both chips is kept at a bare 65W.

In addition, AMD launched the “E” brand extension for its second generation Ryzen series with the new Ryzen 5 2600E and Ryzen 7 2700E. The two chips sacrifice the clock frequency to achieve an impressive 45W TDP. The Ryzen 5 2600E has a clock frequency of 3.10 GHz and a 4.00 GHz turbo, while the Ryzen 7 2700E has a clock frequency of 2.80 GHz and a 4.00 GHz turbo. Unfortunately, the company did not publish the prices of the four promoted chips.

By introducing these new models, the catalog of Zen architecture-based processors will become even more attractive, which has been successful since its introduction about a year and a half ago.
