Ryzen 2 Processors Announced
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:22:58 am »
AMD has had some pretty good success with their Ryzen processors and have made Intel scramble and release a new processor (that was an older processor, simply clocked and volted higher) to try and look like they are staying current. Well, AMD is tired of their success with the Ryzen processor and is not stepping up to the Ryzen 2. Early in 2018, we can expect these to arrive and they will have more cores and higher clock speeds with a much higher boost speed. If any of the rumors are true, these could really keep up and take down the high-end Intel CPUs - at a fraction of the price.

   Dubbed 'Pinnacle Ridge', the wave of second-gen Ryzen chips will start predictably with the flagship Ryzen 7 in February, followed by its less gutsy siblings in March. With up to eight cores and clock speeds reckoned to hit up to 4.4GHz, the Ryzen 2 CPUs are not only set to butt heads with Intel's eighth-generation processors, but also take on Intel's 9000 series CPUs set to make a splash mid next year.Source: TheInquirer
