AMD’s eagerly anticipated second-generation Ryzen 7 2700X octa-core has been given the overclocking treatment ahead of its official launch this month. Two early testers were independently able to achieve overclocking speeds of 4.3 GHz across all eight cores.

The second-generation AMD Ryzen-based CPUs mightn’t be meant to hit store shelves until at least April 19, but that hasn’t stopped some stores from selling them to customers early apparently. The first overclocking benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X have reached the next and they are impressive. The 8-core chip has been successfully clocked up to 4.3 GHz at 1.4V across all of its cores yielding impressive results.

Twitter user @hardwarenumber3rs has posted Cinebench R15 results for the Ryzen 7 2700X overclocked at 4.3 GHz, while El Chapuzas Informatico was also able to reach the same overclocking speeds. However, Informatico found that the chip was somewhat unstable at these speeds, but blames pre-launch drivers for the issues. As expected, the Ryzen 7 2700X still lags behind the Intel’s Skylake CPUs for single-core performance, but moves ahead in multi-core, multi-threaded performance.

The AMD Ryzen 7 second-generation Zen+ CPUs are codenamed Pinnacle Ridge and are fabricated on a 12nm process. The based clock is set at 3.7 GHz, with Boost supported up to 4.35 GHz for short periods. The early testers boosted the base clock up to its maximum frequency. The TDP for the Ryzen 7 2700X is 105W, while it ships with AMD’s Wraith Prism cooler. It will retail for US$329.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
