"Second generation Ryzen desktop processors take everything that made the original Ryzen so groundbreaking and makes it better", said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD, "[that means] great performance combined with advanced technology to deliver an awesome experience for the most demanding users".

We'll start alphabetically with ASRock, which has a total of six different X470 motherboards including two Taichi-series, two Fatal1ty Gaming motherboards (one mini-ITX) and two X470 Master SLI motherboards. While these chips are classified as second-generation Ryzen processors, they are not a "Ryzen 2" architecture. Still, there is a new 12nm production process used to create the chips' integrated circuits, which could mean better performance, including less latency and reduced cooling requirements. The base clock and turbo clock speeds for one. Two of these CPUs roll with 8-core, 16-thread tech, and the other two are 6-core, 12-thread models. At first glance, that might not look like much, but looks can be deceiving. But what is certain is that you can preorder right now for delivery on April 19.

Along with the new CPUs comes an updated motherboard chipset, known as Pinnacle Ridge.

The downside with the first round of Ryzen 7 chips is that the XFR boost is locked at an extra 100MHz.

AMD has also adjusted its overall core pricing strategy. The Ryzen 7 2700 is very similar, with base and boost speeds of 3.2GHz and 4.1GHz respectively and a 65W TDP, and is priced at Rs. 20,490 plus taxes.

Lastly, the 2600 has the same number of cores, threads and cache as the 2600X but 3.4GHz/3.9GHz base/boost clock speed and 65W TDP.

We also get some press deck information about the new generation processors and motherboards.

Previously Gigabyte Technology also released a new BIOS for the Gigabyte AM4 motherboards based on the AMD X370, B350, A320 chipsets.

As noted in the slide above, all four processors come standard with AMD's own Wraith cooler. The Ryzen 7 2700 will come with the Wraith Spire LED cooler, while the Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600 will come with the Wraith Spire and Wraith Stealth coolers respectively.

We'll have a full review of the Ryzen 7 2700X soon, so check back for performance benchmark results and our recommendations. We're not overly fond of manufacturers offering pre-orders before revealing performance numbers, as with the Threadripper launch previous year, however we can at least discuss the details of each part.
