The Ryzen 2nd generation leaks just won’t stop. It’s only been four days since the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X made its rumored blip on the web, and now there are rumors of another chip that clocks up to 4.35 GHz.
A forum user on the South Korean HWBattle boards posted one of the first benchmarks of a potentially unreleased Ryzen 2nd generation chip. The engineering sample appears to be a Ryzen 7 chip equipped with 8-cores and 16-threads, plus a maximum boost clock speed of 4.35GHz.
That’s even faster than the maximum clock of 4.2GHz speeds enabled with XFR 2.0 that we saw from the rumored Ryzen 7 2700X. This leads us to believe the chip in question could be the Ryzen 7 2800 or 2800X, that would be the new flagship of AMD’s mainline CPUs.
On top of sharing a specification readout, HWBattle posted benchmarks that reveal the mystery chip trouncing the current Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1800X, as well as the competing Intel Core i7-8700K in CineBench and 3DMark scores.
There’s not much to support the validity of these benchmark scores, but if true, we could see dramatically better gaming performance with Ryzen 2nd generation.
