Leaked AMD Ryzen 2nd Generation benchmarks appear in Russia

We all know that AMD's Ryzen Second Generation CPUs are coming, with AMD themselves announced an April release date at CES 2018. Now the release of AMD's Ryzen 2000 series is close at hand, though it seems that Russian retailers have jumped the gun and have started selling AMD's latest processors early. 

Members of the overclockers.ru forums have already shared some of their findings, revealing improvements to both cache and memory latency for AMD's Ryzen 2000 series processors. In our AMD Raven Ridge R3 2200G and R5 2400G review, we have already detailed improvements to AMD's cache latency, though it looks like Ryzen 2nd Generation processors go a step beyond that.    

When compared to a Ryzen 7 1700X, AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation CPU is shown to offer an 11% decrease in DDR4 memory latency at 2666MHz, a 29% decrease in L2 Cache latency and a 16% decrease in L3 Cache latency. DRAM and Cache latency was a weakness of AMD's original Ryzen CPUs, making this design change hugely significant in latency dependent workloads.

These results from the overclockers.ru forums back up the data from SiSoftware's early Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600 review, which was quickly taken down, likely at the request of AMD. We have archived most of SiSoftware's data, which also details a reduction in inter-CCX latencies. 

AMD's Ryzen 2000 series of CPUs are expected to release on April 19th. Leaked pricing for AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X, Ryzen 7 2700, Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600 are available to view here
