Just a cut-power Ryzen in a low-budget land

Two of AMD's lower power Ryzen models have appeared online, with specifications, a wee bit before expected.  The 2600E and 2700E bear many of the same specifics as their higher powered brethren, with significantly reduced TDP of 45W which results in lower base frequencies.   The Ryzen 5 2600E will still sport six cores and 12 threads but the base frequency is 0.5GHz lower than the 2600X at 3.1GHz while the Ryzen 7 2700E's eight cores and 16 threads drop 1.1GHz to a base 2.8GHz.  Sadly the rumours did not reveal details about the boost clock, so for now that remains pure speculation.

The Inquirer has posted links to the leak as well as talk about EPYC.

"DETAILS OF AMD's incoming Ryzen 5 2600E and Ryzen 7 2700E CPUs have unsurprisingly surfaced online, confirming that the low-power chips will take on Intel's Core 'T' series of microprocessors."

smart. i can now build my daughters a system by lowering the clock speed to my r5 1600.

for someone who uses multi-threaded apps a lot i could see using these lower TDP chips in a mini-itx situation for reduced thermals. it will be interesting where they sit in single threaded performance.

i still using an old skylake i5 desktop with no pressure to upgrade. it streams to twitch, records the streams, and runs/scales the games on medium 4k settings paired with the meh rx480 i have.

a lot of the success with my old CPU has more to do with good SSDs i think.
