AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is a high-end desktop processor with 8 cores (16 threads) that was announced early 2018. It is based on the revised Zen+ cores and at launch the fastest Ryzen CPU. The CPU cores clock at 3.7 GHz base and using Precision Boost 2 up to 4.3 GHz. All 8 cores and 16 threads can clock up to 4 GHz. The 8 cores are divided in two cluster (4 cores each with own L3 cache) connected via Infinity Fabric.
Compared to the older first Ryzen generation (e.g., Ryzen 5 1700X), the second generation is manufactured in an improved process (12nm called), offers and improved Precision Boost 2 (especially in partial load of the cores) and faster cache and memory speeds.
