AMD 2nd Generation Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X Benchmarks Leaked

AMD Ryzen 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X CPU

Back in April 2018, AMD officially launched its 2nd generation Ryzen processors, but only the high-end 6-core and 8-core CPUs. The entry-level processors are not released at the same time. Those will be aiming towards the mainstream gamers with a budget-friendly price tag.

Recently, two benchmark scores of the upcoming 4-core Ryzen CPUs had been spotted on Geekbench’s results. The shown CPUs are the Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X. Both of them are expected to have most of the features and improvements brought by the updated 12 nm Zen+ micro-architecture. They will have slightly higher base and boost clock frequency, and compatible with the existing AM4 motherboards.

According to the benchmarks, the Ryzen 3 2300X will be a 4-core processor with no SMT enabled (multi-threading). It will be clocked at 3.50 GHz and can be boost up to 4.0 GHz. It scored at 4734 for single-core performance and 13999 for multi-core, which is comparable to Intel Core i5-7600 or i5-7600K (their Geekbench scores). We expect its price would be similar to the previous generation Ryzen 3 1300X at around $120 to $130 USD.

The Ryzen 5 2500X will have 4 cores and 8 threads, clocked at 3.60 GHz. It has the same amount of L2 and L3 cache as the 2300X (2 MB and 8 MB). The turbo boost clock is also up to 4.0 GHz. In the benchmark, it scored 4782 and 17291 in single-core and multi-core respectively. The results are similar to the Intel Core i7-7700 (its Geekbench scores). It should cost around $150 to $170 USD, just like the Ryzen 5 1500X.

So far the results from those two new Ryzen processors look pretty promising. They scored close to Intel’s last generation (7th Gen) high-end processors, not to mention they support overclocking, the same AM4 motherboards and much lower price.
