AMD Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600 and StoreMI Review

Today I have the follow-up review of the Ryzen 7 2700 and the Ryzen 5 2600 CPUs. These are AMD’s lower wattage versions of the new Pinnacle Ridge eight and six-core CPUs. As mentioned in the Ryzen 7 2700X review, AMD has successfully raised the clock speeds, lower latency, and improved memory speeds/compatibility with its updated Zen+ architecture. I’m sure this is going to show in the Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 as well since all four CPUs are based on the same Global Foundries’ 12LP process. Read More

AMD Ryzen 3 1200 and 1300X CPU Review

Bringing in the tail-end of the newest AMD CPUs we have the Ryzen 3 lineup. This is AMD’s offering for the budget-minded PC user. Today we’ll be looking at the two quad-core offerings, the 1200 and 1300X. The 1300X has the XFR technology we’ve seen from the Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, and Ryzen 5 1500X/1600X allowing for boost speeds over their typical max. The 1200 is locked to its listed speeds, unless you’re overclocking. One major difference from the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 CPUs is the exclusion of Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) from the Ryzen 3 processors. While this does mean a performance hit for multithreaded applications, it also cuts the cost of the product making it accessible to more users. Let’s take a closer look at the lineup now. Read More
