2nd Generation AMD Ryzen 5 2500X benchmark shows up, after the Ryzen 3 2300X CPUz and Cinebench benchmarks were leaked. This time, performance details of the Ryzen 5 2500X came from XFastest, a Hong Kong-based site. XFastest also got their hands on a Ryzen 3 2300X; and boy oh boy, they were able to overclocked it to 5.66GHz using an LN2 cooling solution (as expected). Both the Ryzen 5 2500X and Ryzen 3 2300X are based on AMD’s new 12nm Zen+ architecture. The Ryzen 5 2500X is a little bit better in terms of specs compared to the Ryzen 3 2300X. The 2500X has 4 cores 8 threads; base clock speed of 3.6GHz and a boost clock speed of 4 GHz; 18MB Cache and with a 65W of TDP. Check out more details below.
AMD Ryzen 5 2500X CPUz and Cinebench Benchmark Leaked
Based on the leaked Ryzen 5 2500X CPUz screenshot, the 2500X may be able to overclock manually up to 4.3GHz. It also has a Cinebench CPU score of 1006cb, making it a little bit faster compared to the Ryzen 3 2300X’s ~690cb points. The 2500X is very similar to its predecessor, the 1500X; of course with some few improvements. And when compared to the 2300X, the only differences (based on leaked specs) are double the thread count, 8MB more cache, and will definitely be priced a tad higher than the 2300X.
AMD Ryzen 3 2300X Overclocked to 5.66 GHz
We have seen the Cinebench benchmark score of the Ryzen 3 2300X from the previous leak. This time, XFastest was able to overclock the 2300X to 5.55~5.66GHz at 1.83 volts. LN2 cooling was used to achieve this high OC speed; no way a water cooling solution can achieve this high clock speeds.
At 5.5~5.6GHz, the 2300X got a Cinebench score of 895cb. That’s not really a huge improvement in terms of overall performance, since the 2500X easily got a 1000cb at normal clock speeds.
Both CPUs are expected to be released soon and will more or less be released together with the new B450 motherboards. See the specs comparison below.
