Last week AMD launched its 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs, with the Ryzen 7 2700X at the top of the stack. If you remember the first generation products, you will remember the 1800X had been the top offering, with the 1700X below it. The lack of a 2800X led many to speculate for reasons why, but for AMD it is because the 2700X and Ryzen 7 2700 cover the performance and price points it was aiming for, with these new 8 core/16 thread parts. However, Jim Anderson, Senior Vice President at AMD apparently hinted a 2800X could appear on a later date, depending on Intel's response to the 2700X. Many of the reviews I have seen describe the 2700X as a worthy choice over Intel's Core i7 8700K, because while the 8700K can still offer greater gaming performance, the 2700X is not far behind, and with its addition two cores and four threads, it offers even better performance in multi-threaded workloads.

Yea I heard the same thing and also predicted that they had a 2800x waiting in the wings as a response to whatever Intel decided to do. It does make one wonder what this alleged 2800x would be clocked at though. My guess is at the very least it would have to boost to 4.4GHz to be faster than the 2700x and also have a raised base clock and when in auto have a slightly faster all core turbo than the 2700x. Ideally a boost of 4.5Ghz and a all core turbo at 4.2-4.3GHz would do very nicely. I would not hold my breath for a 4.5Ghz boost though maybe a 4.45Ghz boost you have to remember if these things exist AMD is hand picking them to be able to reach their required goal here. I would think they will be rather costly as well when compared to the price of a 2700x that is probably still cheaper than Intel's soon to be released 8 core desktop CPU.
