Lenovo is one of the biggest tech companies with products ranging from smartphones to workstation desktops. The most notable of their products is their laptop range, as they are cheaper than the competition while maintaining the promised performance of their legion gaming laptops are praised for the craftsmanship and price.
The company remains in the news often than many other companies of the same scale because of the fact that the company with or without a will has been a part of the recent leaks. Firstly the 11th gen Graphics cards from Nvidia were seen in one of Lenovo’s website stating that an upcoming laptop will be packing one of the unannounced Graphics cards later they put information down. Now, guys over Hexus.net saw two unannounced 2nd gen Ryzen CPUs in the options for Lenovo’s ThinkCentre M725 line of small form factor desktop computers. They removed the information later, but the news broke out.
AMD has yet to announce the processors that will replace the Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 5 1500X, but Lenovo listed the possible successors in the options for their ThinkCentre desktops. To no surprise, the processors are called Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X respectively. It is not uncommon that the unreleased processors show up in the benchmarking databases like Geek bench’s database or 3D lab’s database, but a rumor associated with the partner is not what we are used to seeing. However, it is now how we see the leaks recently.
Regarding the leaked specifications, these processors like any other 2nd gen Ryzen processor are the improved versions of their respective predecessors, AMD has specifically catered the needs of the customers who can benefit from high frequencies and more core counts. Based on the Zen+ architecture the Ryzen 5 2500X has the same number of cores and threads like its predecessor but the base clock speed is now 3.6GHz from 3.5GHz, and the boost clock speed is now 4GHz from 3.7GHz. We can see the benefits of the XFR and precision boost. Similarly, the Ryzen 3 2300X according to the rumor shares the same number of cores and threads as its predecessor with increased clock speeds that are now 3.5GHz to 4GHz.
Much information is yet to be revealed as AMD is still quite on the matter. The TDP, cache, pricing, and availability of these processors are also in the shadows. We hope that we’ll get the information soon. More importantly for AMD, the promised release window of the Threadripper 2000 series is very close now.
