AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation is rumoured to be in Q1-Q2 2018

AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation is rumoured to be in Q1-Q2 2018

A new AMD roadmap has leaked online, revealing the release schedule of AMD's upcoming Ryzen series CPUs, with Ryzen 2nd generation coming towards the end of Q1/start of Q2 and Ryzen Gaming coming in Q2. 

AMD Ryzen 2nd Generation is expected to be a 12nm refresh of Ryzen, which means that it is not supposed to use AMD's Zen 2/+ architecture. These new processors are expected to offer some modest architectural improvements over Ryzen, though at this time it is unknown precisely what improvements AMD will deliver here.    

Ryzen Gaming is expected to be AMD's Desktop-grade CPU/GPU combo (APU), offering Vega graphics and Zen CPU cores in a single package. With the release of Ryzen Gaming AM4 users will finally be able to use the display outputs on their motherboards, which are previously unusable with existing Ryzen CPUs.

AMD is expected to release new 400-series chipsets at the start of 2018, with Pinnacle Ridge being expected to offer modest clock speed improvements over Ryzen and a more powerful memory controller. This new series of processors should allow AMD to offer more performance per core and support faster DDR4 memory.

The way I read AMD is that if they aren't building ridiculous amounts of hype the product release won't be that significant.Quote

that's at least in part because they have a product right now flying of the shelfs so they dont want to disturb that, so i expect the release of ryzen+ to be quick and swift to minimize people waiting for it.Quote

All being well these will drop into existing AM4 mobos, I know they said they'll support it for quite a few years, I just don't have a lot of faith in companies.Quote

The current AM4 boards should support them. The most recent BIOS updates for my Asus mobo had compatibility for the new Ryzen chips. Plus, AMD has a pretty good history of sticking with the same socket for a while. AM3 went on forever.

I can't wait for these chips. I'm not sure if I'll upgrade immediately though cause I got a golden chip with this 1600X (runs very cool at 4 gig on near stock voltage) and it's handling all the games I'm throwing at it right now with no problem. I do foresee a new GPU in my future tho along the lines of a 1070 Ti so it'll be interesting to see how much better the new chips perform. I may just get one just for the fun of having something new to overclock. That's the best thing about being able to just drop a new chip into an existing socket!Quote
