AMD's next generation Ryzen CPUs are set to release in April, transitioning Ryzen to Globalfoundries' 12nm process with enhanced clock speeds, improved turbo technology and a range of small tweaks to deliver enhanced performance over AMD's first generation of Ryzen products. 

An AMD engineering sample has appeared on the Geekbench 4 database under the name "ZD2600BBM68AF_38/34_Y". This processor is a pre-release Ryzen 5 2600 sample, offering six cores, twelve threads and base/boost clock speeds of 3.4/3.8GHz, offering a 200MHz increase in base/boost clock speeds over AMD's existing Ryzen 5 1600.  

What is noteworthy about these scores is the fact that they are larger than what AMD's increased clock speeds would suggest, pointing towards an increase in IPC in certain areas. Alternatively, this could also be showcasing how effective AMD's Precision Boost 2 technology is, though this is something that will need to be investigated further when Ryzen+/Ryzen second-generation products launch.

While a 200MHz increase in base/boost clocks speeds may not seem significant, when the same improvements are applied to a hypothetical Ryzen 2800X we see boost clock speeds of 4.2GHz with a base clock speed of 3.8GHz, offering stock performance that is similar to an overclocked 1800X. If Ryzen Gan 2 can break the 4GHz barrier, Intel will be in for some fierce competition.

Party on

Awesome, if true.

Edit. They got 15% out of Bullozer - Piledriver just by improving the power delivery and a couple of transistor changes. This meant 15% IPC *and* much higher clock speeds. So at least they got form

I just hope the prices are the same as the original Ryzen or cheaper. That would be so awesome.Quote
