AMD plans on continuing its streak with the launch of the 2nd Generation Ryzen CPUs aimed at consumer market. The latest flagship CPU directly replaces both the Ryzen 7 1800X and the 1700X, which were released a year ago.

What's really interesting here is that at 1080p, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X was able to come really close to the Intel i7 8700K.

The new Ryzen 7 2700X is an 8 core 16 threads CPU with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 4.3 GHz. All four new SKUs, namely the Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X, and the Ryzen 2600, are built on the company's 12nm Zen+ architecture, which means that they are only a slight upgrade to the original Ryzen CPUs. It comes with a Wraith Prism LED cooler included in the box. AMD is scheduled to launch the new Zen chips on April 19.

The Ryzen 5 2600X isn't far behind, with a BCLK of 101MHz and the same x58.25 multiplier offering an overall frequency less than 2MHz slower than its bigger sibling. The processor has a 95 W TDP and can be cooled by the Wraith Spire cooler, included in the box. The particular CPU is a direct competitor to Intel's Core i5-8500.

AMD has also launched the compatible AMD X470 chipset that supports the AM4 socket on the new processors and several designs will be sold by ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. Interested buyers may also pre-order the new processors on the company's website.

If you're running low on cash, Ryzen 5 2600 is the most affordable option; it's available for $199.

According to local product listings, the Ryzen 2000 processors will be available from 19 April 2018.
