AMD Ryzen 2600 and ASUS Crosshair VII Hero spotted

Is this a Ryzen 2nd Generation product?



Read more about AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation 2600 CPU and ASUS' Crosshair VII Hero motherboard.

I will be slightly disappointed if we only get a 200hz boost across all SKUs. Definately an improvement, but I would be hoping for closer to 400-500hz.

It's more likely and engineering sample so clocks would be lower

I hope so, but I recall OC3d testing their TR ES against a retail version, and the ES performed quite a bit better. Speculation I suppose

Stock performance doesn't mean anything. It just means that those are the speeds AMD knows every single Ryzen+ off the assembly line will do. See also Intel with their 2.8ghz 8400.

As mentioned it's also an ES..

Overclocking performance will all depend on the quality of the chip. Which should be much better than the first Ryzens, due to them getting used to the process etc etc.

Mind you even 4.2ghz is an improvement.

It really depends on how things like XFR and precision boost 2 work in practice. XFR can boost cores past the standard boost and precision boost 2 has more intermediary clocks between the base and boost depending on the workload.

Here is a link below about AMD Precision boost 2, which was first introduced in Ryzen mobile.

Yeah. Remember the really early Ryzen stuff. It was at 3GHz. We are fairly close to launch though, so I don't expect it to be too different.

Well I hope no one is expecting miracles. This is AMD. For years Intel shrunk and the clocks didn't improve. In fact they got worse. Most Sandy 2500k would do 4.8ghz. It was years before we saw another chip that would do that. They gradually got worse.

200mhz is a nice boost. IMO 4.2ghz puts them in the range of being perfect gaming CPUs. Sure Intel might be faster but you get more than enough FPS out of a cheaper CPU.

If you were having to buy a whole new board and etc for this? then yeah, 200mhz would sound far less appealing to me. But it's literally just a drop in upgrade. Remember, for years people did exactly that on Intel for 5%.

guys dont forget that the 2600 is probably also a 65w part so its natural that they cant go bananas with it, even intel only has a base clock of 2.8ghz on their 6 core cpu thanks to the 65w tdp (and that one doesnt even have 12 threads)

Exactly! It will be cool to see what the 95W products are capable of, the 2600X or 2800X.

True True, hopefully we see some good stuff.
Don't think I'll be moving until Zen 2 though
