AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen

Custom PC - - CONTENTS -

Noth­ing seems to be pre­vent­ing AMD’s de­mo­li­tion squad from storm­ing the CPU arena at the mo­ment. Fol­low­ing hard on the heels of the first Ryzen CPUs last year comes the next gen­er­a­tion of Ryzen chips, bring­ing smaller tran­sis­tors, ma­ture boost­ing tech­nolo­gies and a firm farewell to the mem­ory com­pat­i­bil­ity is­sues that plagued the orig­i­nal Ryzen launch.

We’ve taken a look at what’s new on p21, and we’ve also re­viewed the lat­est X-se­ries 6-core and 8-core CPUs. With im­proved mem­ory com­pat­i­bil­ity, we also ran some mem­ory tests at a range of fre­quen­cies to find the new Ryzen sweet spot on p24, and you’ll find a full overclocking guide on p26.
