Increase clocks without an increase to TDP

AMD Ryzen 2600 and ASUS Crosshair VII Hero spotted

The SiSoft hardware database is often a treasure trove of information, with data of upcoming hardware frequently coming to light due to careless use of the company's benchmarking tools. 

What appears to be an AMD Ryzen 5 (2nd Generation) 2600 CPU has been listed on the benchmarking database, under the Result ID ZD2600BBM68AF_38/34_Y, which makes this processor appear as a desktop model with six cores, twelve threads, a base clock speed of 3400MHz and a boost clock speed of 3.8GHz. This CPU engineering sample is expected to act as a replacement for AMD's Ryzen 5 1600, offering 200MHz increases to both its base and boost clock speeds.

At this time it is unknown if this engineering sample offers the same specifications as AMD's final shipping models, or how Precision Boost 2 and XFR effect this product's performance. The BB value in this CPU ID indicates that it has a 65W TDP, just like the Ryzen 5 1600. 

Alongside this CPU a motherboard called the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero has also been listed, an apparent successor to the Crosshair VI Hero, one of the Ryzen platform's most popular motherboards at launch. This motherboard is expected to utilise an X470 chipset and deliver users some features that were missing from its last-generation counterpart.

It appears that even AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation low-TDP parts will be able to offer boost clock speeds of 3.8GHz, which hopefully means that overage overclocks will improve with this new generation of products. If AMD's hypothetical 2600X also provides a boost of 200MHz its boost clock speeds should be around 4.2GHz without XFR, which is excellent news for those who wanted additional sing;e-threaded CPU performance.

I will be slightly disappointed if we only get a 200hz boost across all SKUs. Definately an improvement, but I would be hoping for closer to 400-500hz.Quote

It's more likely and engineering sample so clocks would be lowerQuote

I hope so, but I recall OC3d testing their TR ES against a retail version, and the ES performed quite a bit better. Speculation I supposeQuote

Stock performance doesn't mean anything. It just means that those are the speeds AMD knows every single Ryzen+ off the assembly line will do. See also Intel with their 2.8ghz 8400.

As mentioned it's also an ES..

Overclocking performance will all depend on the quality of the chip. Which should be much better than the first Ryzens, due to them getting used to the process etc etc.

Mind you even 4.2ghz is an improvement.Quote

It really depends on how things like XFR and precision boost 2 work in practice. XFR can boost cores past the standard boost and precision boost 2 has more intermediary clocks between the base and boost depending on the workload.

Here is a link below about AMD Precision boost 2, which was first introduced in Ryzen mobile.

Yeah. Remember the really early Ryzen stuff. It was at 3GHz. We are fairly close to launch though, so I don't expect it to be too different.Quote
