  • AMD's Ryzen 2 processors have been overclocked beyond 5GHz

The desktop class CPUs compete head-to-head with Intel's latest 8th generation processors. The top-of-the-line second generation AMD Ryzen CPU model is reportedly going to be priced at $329, which will be a relatively great bargain when compared to the 1700X and the 1800X, now priced at $399 and $499, respectively.

The Ryzen 7 2700X with its eight physical CPU cores performed a hair better than the Ryzen 5 2600X, reaching 5.884GHz with the core voltage set at 1.76V.

As an added bonus to buyers, AMD has announced that they will be including a free "Wraith" cooler with each CPU. AMD plans on continuing its streak with the launch of the 2nd Generation Ryzen CPUs aimed at consumer market.

There's also 2 new Ryzen 5 CPUs that were launched alongside the Ryzen 7 CPUs.

These four new models represent the new offers from AMD to give PC users "disruptive levels" of computing performance at their respective price points, which are generally much lower compared to the equivalent, closest-performing counterpart from Intel.

The Ryzen 7 2700X boasts a slightly increased base clock and boost clock speed.

All of the new chips will be available this April and you can pre-order them from your favorite retailer now.

For those looking for more value per dollar, there's the Ryzen 7 2700, the same eight cores and 16 threads at a max boost speed of 4.1 GHz, for $299.

The Ryzen 5 2600 is the most affordable chip announced this week, at $199.

2600X - six cores, 12 threads, 19MB of cache.
