Gen 2 Ryzen 7 series

I read about the new Ryzen 7's that are supposed to come out this year. Is there really a new Ryzen processor coming out with 12 cores and at least 4Ghz? Reddit is claiming that it is a hoax, but it isn't quite as far fetched as the Hellcat Minivan that FCA hinted about, and I question the reliability of Reddit.

Re: Gen 2 Ryzen 7 series

With the die shrink and more mature architecture it is possible, though most likely a 12 core processor would be along the lines of 3.5ghz base 4ghz turbo. However, remember that raw speed and core count is all secondary to IPC capability.

Re: Gen 2 Ryzen 7 series

thanks @black_zion I just read an article to confirm the new processors. The 5Ghz part may have been what Reddit was trying to claim is a hoax.

Well it is theoretically possible there will be a 1 core Turbo frequency of 5ghz, benefits of a smaller node are increased power efficiency, I'd think that'd be more for the 4-8 core chips, people that are buying 12 core chips aren't going to just be using one core.
