I haven't heard anything about the 2800X, but if its anything like 1st Gen Ryzen 7, all you really need is a 2700 and OC.
Either way, we find out soon enough, April is around the corner.
I think 2700X is 2800X. Reason for this is that if they had called the current 2700X a 2800X it would not have looked as good. This way if they compare 2700X to 1800X you can always lower the expectations and get away with it.
We are not on OCN forum sir, you should reserve this kind of comment without any proof for OCN.
Please evolve a bit your way to post!
For now it's still a bit early to ask why there is no 2800X.
Wait a bit the first batch of cpu come out and see how AMD cpu landscape evolve.
Maybe there is another hidden SKU we not know, or it could be we will see the return of the 800 series with Zen2.

This is an incremental advance for Ryzen anyway. People forget that Intel had to abandon their famous 'tick-tock' method of processor release. (new process, tick, optimized process, tock) Now they're doing a double round of optimizations on the same process so it has become tick-tock-tock.
This Ryzen release is a bit odd in that AMD is doing a small process shrink going from 14 nm to 12 nm. That really isn't a huge difference, and since they're moving to a new process instead of optimizing the 14 nm process it leaves less room for improvement. The important thing is that AMD processors are once again relevant, and because AMD is a fabless processor company, they can go with whoever has the better process. (with a slight handicap because they have deals in place with Global Foundries that go back to the fab spinoff.)
There was no reason for X1800 in the first place. It was there as a product for AMD fans to support AMD. It might be 800 might be for a higher core count model with Zen 2.
