AMD is including a free Wraith cooler with every chip, due to popular demand. Earlier today TechPowerUp reported that a PC enthusiast with the moniker of "TSAIK" has already been overclocking the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X chips using LN2, and sharing the results.

AMD has had a great year with the launch new CPU and GPU lineup, in 2017. So you don't need to change your motherboards in case you are using the old Ryzen CPUs, just a BIOS update will suffice. Owing to the adoption of the 12nm fabrication process itself throw in the fact that the new Ryzen CPUs also boast much higher stock core and boost clock speeds, and we may be looking at significant performance gains from the previous generation of processors.

Do any of you plan to upgrade to one of the new second-generation Zen+ chips?

While the rest of us are still waiting for the Ryzen 2000 series CPUs to release, some early adopters, hardware reviewers and lucky chaps, have managed to get their hands on some pre-release versions of the chips.

All 2nd gen Ryzen desktop processors ship with the new AMD Wraith cooling unit, which AMD says offers improved thermal performance over the Wraith Max, a more compatible fan profile and enhanced lighting capabilities with per-RGB controls. The top-of-the-line second generation AMD Ryzen CPU model is reportedly going to be priced at $329, which will be a relatively great bargain when compared to the 1700X and the 1800X, now priced at $399 and $499, respectively. The Ryzen 7 2700X performed a hair better than the Ryzen 5 2600X, reaching 5.884GHz with the core voltage set at 1.76V. The new model is also competitively priced to go against Intel's Core i7-8700K, which is being sold for around $350. The 2600X and 2600 in the Ryzen 5 range are priced at United States dollars 229 (INR 14,932) USD 199 (INR 12,975), respectively. It's still a six-core processor with 12 threads, and capable of a max boost speed of 3.9 GHz.
