AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Surfaced In Benchmark Testing, EPYC 3000 and Ryzen V1000 Announced
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is a second-gen Ryzen desktop processor. This chipset recently appeared in a benchmark testing revealing some of its possible specs and features.
The upcoming chipset from the American multi-national company will feature a 300MHz base speed and higher boost speed of 4.1GHz that’s faster when compared to its predecessor. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is also equipped with an Extended Frequency Range (XFR), which makes it jump up to an additional 100MHz for an extreme boost of 4.2GHz.
For some reference, the XFR is part of AMD’s SenseMI technology that’s built into its Ryzen processors. Embedded sensors regulate the current temperatures, power usage, and present speed of the chipset. In case the thermal conditions are right, Precision Boost will turn on the chip’s base speed when it needs more processing power. With this, the boost can go even higher if utilizing just two cores.
From there, the XFR will upsurge the speed of two cores even more based on the computer’s cooling system. It is also worth noting that the lower the temperature, the greater the speed boost. Nonetheless, the maximum seems to be locked at 100MHz, at any rate in the first-generation Ryzen CPUs. But then, that could change with the use XFR 2.0 in the newer CPUs. Keep in mind that for XFR to hit its full allowance, PCs need premium air or water-based cooling systems.
In separate news, AMD already announced the EPYC 3000 and Ryzen V1000 Embedded Processors that will go in a new stage for high-performance embedded processors. The EPYC 3000 is engineered by the “Zen” architecture and is aimed towards “networking, edge computing, and storage” machines while the Ryzen V1000 has different use cases.
As of now, these are the known information about the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. But then, these aren’t confirmed by AMD yet, thus it’s advised to be taken with a grain of salt.
