AMD Ryzen 'Pinnacle Ridge' procesori predstavljeni u ožujku



There is more clarity on when AMD plans to launch its 2nd generation Ryzen 'Pinnacle Ridge' processors, along with companion 400-series chipsets. Retailers in Japan, citing upstream suppliers, expect AMD to launch Ryzen # 2000-series (or 'Ryzen 2') processors in March 2018, along with two motherboard chipset models, the top-tier AMD X470, and the mid-range AMD B450. An older report pegged this launch at February. The two chipsets are differentiated from their current-generation 300-series counterparts in featuring PCI-Express gen 3.0 general purpose lanes. The 'Pinnacle Ridge' processors, on the other hand, are expected to be optical-shrinks of current Ryzen 'Summit Ridge' silicon to the new 12 nm silicon fabrication process, which will allow AMD to increase clock speeds with minimal impact on power-draw.

AMD Ryzen 2 'Pinnacle Ridge' procesori bit će ugrađeni u postojeći AM4 paket, a očekuje se da će biti kompatibilni s postojećim matičnim pločama AM4 pod uvjetom da BIOS ažurira proizvođače matičnih ploča. AMD planira njegovati socket AM4 ekosustav do 2020. Buduće matične ploče temeljene na čipsetima serije AMD serije također bi mogle sadržavati kompatibilnost s postojećim procesorima 'Summit Ridge' Ryzen. Ove će se matične ploče isporučivati ​​s potpunom podrškom za Ryzen 'Raven Ridge' APU-ove, nešto što zahtijeva BIOS-ove nadogradnje na trenutnim matičnim pločama serije od 300 serija.
