Naming The AMD Ryzen 2 Processors

Colloquially known as Ryzen 2, the AMD Pinnacle Ridge processors promise even to deliver even better price-performance value than their award-winning Ryzen brethren. But calling the actual models Ryzen 2 is confusing, because the Ryzen family is split into three numerically-named lines – Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3.

Officially, they should be known as the 2000 series, like so :

  • AMD Ryzen 7 2000 Series
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2000 Series
  • AMD Ryzen 3 2000 Series


AMD Raven Ridge

The first AMD Ryzen 2 processors already hit the market on 12 February 2018. The AMD Ryzen 2000G Series, codenamed Raven Ridge, is considered to be part of the Ryzen 2000 series, even though they are based on the existing Zen microarchitecture.

They are Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) – essentially Ryzen CPUs with integrated Vega graphics. You can read more about them in our articles :

The “true” AMD Ryzen 2 desktop processors are codenamed Pinnacle Ridge. They are based on the Zen+ microarchitecture, and are fabricated using a finer 12 nm FinFET process technology. AMD will be introducing four Pinnacle Ridge processors in April 2018.

  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700X – 8C/16T, 3.7 GHz base, 4.35 GHz boost
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700 – 8C/16T, 3.2 GHz base, 4.1 GHz boost
