MSI Has Five AMD X470 Motherboards

AMD launches 2nd-gen Ryzen: $199 to $329, available April 19, pre-orders today

AMD is hoping to continue the disruptive streak it began in the PC market past year by announcing the upcoming launch of its second-generation Ryzen desktop processors.

What the new CPUs do deliver is substantially increased clocks and, in one case, a somewhat higher TDP. The new chip comes at a price of $329, which is a steal compared to $399 and $499 for the 1700X and 1800X. 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. The Ryzen 7 2700's clock speeds are a significant jump from the first-generation model, as the boost goes up to 4.1GHz on a 3.2GHz base.

"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 wonderful experience for the most demanding users".

The Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600 both have six cores with multi-threading, and 19MB of cache memory. It's packed in a 65W TDP and comes with a $199 price tag.

Following the launch of the Ryzen series of processors previous year, AMD has made some incredible strides forward into the high end processor market.

These are also available for pre-order and range from United States $299.99 for the X470 Taichi Ultimate down to United States $149.99 for the X470 Master SLI/ac motherboard. All also come with box coolers of varying qualities, which is a change on 1st-gen Ryzen where some X models did not include a cooler. The main advantage to X470 over X370 is improved power infrastructure to better support 2nd-gen Ryzen and provide higher clocks, though of course 2nd-gen Ryzen chips will work in 300-series motherboards too. This chipset comes with a free download of the new AMD StoreMI storage acceleration technology to combine the speed of an SSD with the capacity of a hard drive into a single, fast, easy-to-manage drive. The new Wraith Prism cooler is bundled with the entire line-up of the second generation Ryzen processors.

Like its predecessors, the Ryzen 2700X has no integrated graphics processor, which means you'll have to install your own discrete GPU alongside it. By upgrading their firmware with the newest BIOS updates available on the GIGABYTE official website, users can bring out the full potential of these AM4 motherboards with the Smart Fan 5 technology for cooling and Ultra-Durable PCIe armor for added durability.
