AMD announced in January that its 2nd-gen Ryzen chips for desktops were set to launch in April. But thanks to leaked slides posted to El Chapuzas Informático, we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the upcoming AMD Ryzen 2000 series of desktop processors.

AMD already introduced the Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G earlier this year. Those are the company’s first Ryzen desktop processors to feature integrated Radeon Vega graphics. But here’s what we can expect from the rest of the Ryzen 2000 family:

AMD Ryzen 2000 desktop chips

Ryzen 7 2700X8163.7 GHz4.35 GHz105W$369
Ryzen 7 27008163.2 GHz4.1 GHz65W$299
Ryzen 5 2600X6123.6 GHz4.25 GHz95W$249
Ryzen 5 26006123.3 GHz3.9 GHz65W$199
Ryzen 5 2400G483.6 GHz3.9 GHz65W$169
Ryzen 5 2200G443.5 GHz3.7 GHz65W$99

For the most part the new 2000 series processors are all based on AMD’s new 12nm Zen+ CPU architecture (except for the G-series chips with Radeon graphics, which are 14nm Zen chips).

They also tend to have higher turbo speeds than their predecessors.

The new 12nm chips feature an updated chipset and they’re compatible with both a new line of 400 series motherboards and with last year’s 300 series boards (while 1st-gen Ryzen chips only work with 300 series motherboards. The new boards offer “precision boost overdrive” to support the higher boost speeds available from processors with X at the end of their names.

The first of those new motherboard designs will be the X470, with a B450 design following later this year. Both should bring support for optimized memory routing, lower idle power, and the ability to disable USB ports on a per-port basis, among other things.

It’s unclear if leaked slides paint a picture of AMD’s complete 2nd-gen Ryzen lineup, or just tells us about the first four chips we can expect. There’s no Ryzen 7 2800X chip to replace last year’s Ryzen 7 1800X, for example. But the company says you can expect better gaming performance from a 2018 Ryzen 7 2700X than from a 2017 Ryzen 7 1800X, so the omission isn’t all that disappointing.

    1. You mean like they have since forever ago? Like even the cheapest APU has for years now?

  1. Almost certainly fake, look at the lower left corner, embargo lift March 2017.

    1. I see what you’re saying, but keep this in mind;
      -2007 (late) announced
      -2008 (through 2012) production date
      -2009 hit market
      Phenom II
      -2009 announced
      -(ran production shortly after Phenom)
      -2010 hit market
      FX (refresh & enhancement of Phenom)
      -2011 (late) announced
      -2012 (early/mid through Present) production date
      -2012 (mid) hit market
      -2016 (mid) announced
      -2016 (mid) production date
      -2017 (early) hit market
      -2017 (late) announced
      -2018 ?

      Just follow their trend between announcement, and the production date generally doesn’t fall far behind once engineer samples test out. Production goes full tilt, then release.

      1. Unclear what you are trying to say, these slides have not gone public a year ago.
        If these were slides for partners, there wouldn’t be so many details and more importantly ,they would say “as of…. and under NDA”.
        These are modified old slides for the press. The term embargo is nonsense and only used with the press.
        There is 1% chance that 2017 is a typo but this article should have been deleted.

        1. “All Ryzen Desktop 2000 Processor are unlocked”

          Not too professional is it?
