A new Ryzen 2nd Generation processor has entered into the mix, a low-power 8-core that promised to deliver a lot raw x86 grunt for its relatively low TDP of 45W. Meet the Ryzen 7 2700E, AMD’s most power efficient 8-ore to date. 

This new processor has been uncovered on the 3DMARK database by a reliable leaker known as TUM APISAK, who has uncovered similar benchmark leaks in the past. AMD’s Ryzen 7 2700E has been listed previously in ASRock’s latest AM4 BIOS updates, though until now the processor has never been seen in the wild. 

AMD hasn’t released any E-series AM4 processors to the consumer market at this time, leaving us to believe that the processor is designed for OEM use only, allowing them to fit up to eight processing cores into smaller power envelopes. This low-TDP variant enables OEM system builders to fit 8-core processors into systems that may otherwise be unable to handle its power requirements or heat output, which may be especially true for small form factor PCs.  

The 3DMARK database lists this processor with a 2.8GHz base clock speed, though sadly the processor’s boost clock speed has been misreported by the benchmarking utility. This 2.8Ghz base clock speed matches ASRock’s listings in their latest AM4 BIOS support page.
