Following weeks of leaks about these new processors targeting OEMs and system integrators, AMD today officially announced the Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X processors.

The Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X will be marketed to OEMs and system builders as great processors for "off-the shelf gaming, family, or small form factor desktop PC." Both of these models have a maximum boost clock speed of 4.0GHz and four cores while the Ryzen 5 2500X also has SMT to yield eight threads in total. These new CPUs each have a 65 Watt TDP and a 10MB smart cache and PBO support.
