Lenovo reveals the specifications of AMD’s Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X

Lenovo has released an updated specs sheet for their ThinkCentre M725 system, adding support for two new AMD’s Ryzen 2nd Generation processors. These CPUs are AMD’s Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X, products which are designed to replace the company’s again 1300X and 1500X processors. 

At this time, AMD has not officially revealed these new processors, though both are expected to release with sub-$150 pricing in the near future, bringing some extra competition to the i3-level of the market, making these chips great for low budget gamers and system builders.   

Assuming that these specifications are correct, AMD’s new Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X offer boost clock speeds that are 300MHz higher than their predecessors while maintaining the similar base clock speeds. After combining this with AMD’s Precision boost 2.0 technology, users should see higher clock speeds in all multi-threaded workloads.

AMD’s Zen+ Ryzen 2nd Generation architecture also sports a more powerful integrated memory controller (IMC), with the 2300X and 2500X supporting faster 2933MHz memory out of the box while also offering the improved architecture’s boost to memory latency.

AMD’s other Ryzen 2nd Gen improvements like AMD’s lower latency cache tech should also allow AMD to deliver increased performance in select workloads, though what remains unknown here is whether or not these new CPUs are using a single CCX or Multi-CCX design, as the L3 Cache layout could of this product remains unknown.  In theory, this product could use either a 4+0 or a 2+2 CCX configuration.
