AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen
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.
