A full Ryzen 2000 lineup has been leaked.

There is no Ryzen 7 2800X (yet)

Apparently, AMD is not adding Ryzen 7 2800X to the lineup at this time and all the leaks we have been seeing are of the flagship Ryzen 2000 model, the Ryzen 7 2700X. This CPU will retail at 369 USD, a dollar less than Core i7 8700K.

AMD is also introducing three other Ryzen 7 2000 processors, the Ryzen 7 2700 non-X for 299 USD, which is also 8-core and 16-thread, and two 6-core/12-thread parts: Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 5 2600. Those will retail at 249 USD and 199 USD respectively.

The Ryzen 2000 desktop series will feature much higher turbo clocks than predecessors, up to 4.35 GHz.

AMD is including Wraith Prism with the flagship model and offering Wraith Spire and Stealth to others.

The X470 motherboards are to be launched on April 19th (this could be the launch date of Ryzen 2000 desktop series).

The full lineup lists six Ryzen 2000 SKUs with pricing spanning froom 369 UDS to 99 USD.

The Pinnacle Ridge series will feature clock speeds up to 4.35 GHz. The Ryzen 5 2600X will offer clock speed up to 4.25 GHz out of the box.

According to the next slide, the 400 series motherboards will support Precision Boost Overdrive, a feature not available for existing Ryzen motherboards. It is meant to increase the clock speed even higher, than XFR2, which is supported by both iterations of Zen chipset.
