With AMD’s second generation Ryzen launch getting closer and closer another CPU that is part of that family has been leaked. It is the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is an 8-core, 16-thread processor which appears to run at a base clock of 3.7 GHz and will boost up to 4.2 GHz with XFR 2.0.
The chip was leaked within Futuremark’s 3DMark database and was paired with an ASRock X370 Taichi motherboard. The chip has 16 MB of L3 cache and 4 MB of L2 cache. The TDP of the chip is 95W. As we mentioned the chip has a base clock of 3.7 GHz and will boost up to 4.1 GHz under normal operating scenarios.
This means that the chip is 300 MHz faster than its predecessor. It appears that with the use of XFR 2.0 (eXtended Frequency Range) and Precision Boost 2.0 in certain scenarios the chip could boost all the way up to 4.2 GHz.
Besides the increase in clock speeds the Pinnacle Ridge 2nd Generation Ryzen based processors will come with a slightly enhanced Zen+ architecture which will feature the new 12nm+ process node and technologies such as Precision Boost 2.0, XFR 2.0, higher memory and cache latency speeds.
