Ryzen’s refreshed lineup of CPUs was released yesterday morning to a slew of reviews. The consensus seems to be: they’re slightly better performing and slightly more efficient, but they use more power and get hotter than their 1000 siblings.
Most all of the reviews here agree that this new series of chips makes Ryzen just a little bit more tempting. The the price-to-performance ratio has been bumped up every so slightly, and that’s never a bad thing. It’s too bad they still can’t touch the 8700K for game performance, but they still dominate multi-threaded workloads and game streaming.
