AMD’s Ryzen 2nd Gen processors have been frequently surfing the news since the last few months. Now, finally the benchmarks for the Ryzen 7 2700X/2700 and Ryzen 5 2600X/2600 have been leaked. The benchmarks include 3D mark scores for the Ryzen 7 2700X, in addition to Geekbench and SiSoft scores.

The results are dated just a few days ago, and were run in an X370 motherboard, with a base frequency of 3.7 GHz and a 4.35 GHz boost clock. This could either mean it’s overclocked or BIOS related tweaks.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X vs 7 2700X Geekbench

While the Ryzen 5 2600 can be found at SiSoft database, the 2600X has been spotted at Geekbench. At Geekbench with a score of 24,772 it lands on the heals of Core i7 8700K and beats the non K i7 8700 by a modest margin. Comparing the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X with the previous gen Ryzen 7 1800X, we’re looking at a 13% performance boost. Given that this is a just a die shrink and an architectural refinement of sorts, I’d say this is rather significant. As per the Geekbench entires, the 2600X will also be nearly 19% faster than the 1600X.

In the SiSoft database, the Ryzen 5 2600 will be a 6-core CPU with aboost clock of 3.9 Ghz. As per leaks, the 2600 is supposed to be prized in the sub-200$ range.

3D Mark (Ryzen 7 2700X/7 2700)

In 3D Mark, the Ryzen 7 2700X scored 20,909 in Fire Strike, beating the the Ryzen 7 1700X (17,825) by a notable 18% while the Ryzen 7 1800X (19,051) was 11% slower. Here, the Ryzen 7 2700X boosts to 4.35 GHz, while the 2700 to 3990 MHz.

Ryzen 7 2700X 18% – Faster Thanks to XFR technology and Higher Clocks

The Ryzen 7 2700X and other 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs will be be on average 20% faster due to an improved single core performance. This is in turn thanks to a thanks to higher core clocks, largely due to more advanced Turbo and XFR technology.

Ryzen 7 2700XThese benchmarks also prove that the Ryzen 7 2700X will be a decent overclocker reaching the 4.4 GHz mark quiet easily. In comparison, the current gen Ryzen chips have a 4.0-4.1 GHz limit.

The 2nd Gen Ryzen processors will support DDR4 modules with a speed rating of up to 2933 MHz, meaning that out of the box you will be able to run DDR4 RAM kits that support AMP and XMP ratings higher than 2933 MHz. 

The Ryzen 2700X flagship CPU is expected to go on sale starting from mid-April. So keep your wallets prepped.


My interests range from Human Psychology to Computer Hardware. I'm a perfectionist and I only settle for the best, both when it comes to work and play. Yeah I know I'm no fun at parties. I started TechQuila with a friend as a hobby and currently I'm the Editor-in-Chief here. I'm also pursuing a degree in Engineering and write mainly for the Gaming and Hardware sections, although every once in a while I like to test my skills in the other categories too.
