AMD Ryzen 2000 Series Roadmap Leaked

Well ahead of its launch the product roadmap of AMD’s next-generation AM4 processors was leaked. This roadmap shows that AMD could launch its next-generation Ryzen 2000-series “Pinnacle Ridge” processors with no more than four SKUs initially. These include the flagship Ryzen 7 2700X, followed by the Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and then finally the Ryzen 5 2600.

Looking at pricing the Ryzen 7 2700X is being launched at a SEP of USD $369 which puts it up against Intel’s Core i7-8700K. Then we have the Ryzen 7 2700 at $299, so it will compete with the multiplier-locked Core i7-8700. Moving down the line we come to the Ryzen 5 2600X ($269), positioned against the Core i5-8600K. Finally there is the Ryzen 5 2600 at a very attractive $199. At that price it will compete against a handful of Core i5 6-core SKUs.

All of these chips feature an unlocked multiplier, SMT, and a cooling solution. So even the high-end 2700X and 2600X come with coolers this time around. The Ryzen 7 2700X is the first AM4 chip with a 105W TDP. It also comes with the highest clock speeds for the series, with a 3.70 GHz base clock and a 4.35 GHz boost clock. You can see the rest of the clocks in the graph below.

The next slide shows the AM4 chipset features. We see the new X470 chipset there, which has pretty much the identical features as the previous X370 chipset.

The slides do confirm that the chips are based on the new 12 nm process. Improvements have also been made to Precision Boost, XFR, and more!
