AMD Is Saving The Ryzen 7 2800X For A Later Date

With the initial launch of AMD’s Ryzen 2000 series last week you noticed that the Ryzen 7 2800X was not part of the launch. Jim Anderson, Senior Vice President at AMD, has hinted that AMD might release the Ryzen 7 2800X processor at a later date.

The real reasoning behind this is that the current Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 2700 models cover their performance price points. So AMD does not see the need to release a more powerful model at this time.

Based on the reviews we’ve seen the Ryzen 7 2700X beats Intel’s Core i7-8700K in multi-threaded workloads and closes the gap even further in single-threaded workloads. Intel still has the advantage in gaming performance, but it is very slim.

It seems as if AMD is holding the release on the Ryzen 7 2800X to see what Intel will release next, so basically the ball is in Intel’s court.
