The base clock speed has been increased to 3.7 GHz from 3.6 GHz, while the boost speed has jumped from 4 GHz to 4.3 GHz.

The Ryzen 7 2700 and Ryzen 5 2600 in 8 core and 6 core configurations respectively will sell for Rs 24,490 and Rs 15,490. The processor has a 95 W TDP and can be cooled by the Wraith Spire cooler, included in the box. AMD's new Ryzen CPUs are now available for pre-order, will launch on April 19th, and even though the first reviews will go live on April 17th, it appears that the first third-party gaming benchmarks have surfaced.
