AMD’s Ryzen 7 series has been on the roll for quite a long time and the latest addition to the series is the refreshed Ryzen 7 2700X processor. The interesting part about the processor is that we’ll witness an 8C/16T model with turbo clocks of up to 4.2GHz.

%name AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processors   Should you expect an elevated performance?


According to the latest reports, the processor will have 8 cores and 16 threads with 3.8GHz base and 4.0GHz boost CPU clock speed. Not only this, the other processors releasing under the Ryzen 7 2700X series might have up to 4.2GHz boost speeds! According to TweakTown:

There are other entries of the Ryzen 7 2700X at 4.2GHz, so we should expect a larger punch in the frequency department. My insider sources have told me there “won’t be much performance” increases with the new Ryzen 7 2000-series processors, so we’ll have to wait and see how big the difference is between 3.8GHz boost on the 1700X and the purported 4.2GHz on the 2700X.

However, the analysts are of the view that expecting huge performance standards would be like making a mountain out of a molehill!
