AMD has had a great year with the launch new CPU and GPU lineup, in 2017.

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

The 2nd generation AMD Ryzen processors use the same Zen architecture as the previous one that AMD claims allowed it to push for a staggering 52 per cent increase in the Instructions Per Clock, compared to the previous architecture. The new processors are led by the company's latest flagship CPU, the eight-core Ryzen 7 2700X.

The Ryzen 7 2700X has a maximum boost frequency of 4.3GHz via Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR2), while the Ryzen 5 2600X tops out at 4.2GHz. The Ryzen 5 2600X has 6 cores and 12 threads with 19MB Smart Prefetch Cache. The latest flagship CPU directly replaces both the Ryzen 7 1800X and the 1700X, which were released past year.

Although we've seen hints, leaks and teases of AMD's next-generation refresh of its Ryzen CPUs, AMD has now officially announced them, detailing the 2600, 2600X, the 2700 and the 2700X.

Intel's new i7 8700k, which sells for about $350, has only six cores, in comparison, as Engadget pointed out. Users who would not be using all the multi-threading capability of the new 2700 series could instead pick up one of the new Ryzen 5 2600 chips, instead. That's a bit faster than the 2700, for a power draw of 95 W. For those looking for a chip that's easier to cool down, both the Ryzen 7 2700 and the Ryzen 5 2600 only pulls 65 W. Meanwhile, TSAIK was able to achieve an overclock of 5.884GHz with a core voltage of 1.76V on a MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard. Interested buyers may also pre-order the new processors on the company's website.

The Ryzen 7 2700X is priced at Dollars 329 (INR 21,452), whereas the Ryzen 7 2700 is priced at USD 299 (INR 19,496). It's still a six-core processor with 12 threads, and capable of a max boost speed of 3.9 GHz.
