Friday often brings rumours and this one is no different, with purported benchmarks of the unreleased Ryzen 5 2500X.  The chip, if it is indeed valid, will have four cores with eight threads unlike a certain competitors soon to be released refresh and will clock between 3.6-4GHz with 4.3GHz reachable through XFR.  There could also be a four core, four thread Ryzen 3 2300X in the works with a frequency range of 3.5-4GHz.  Pricing should be rather attractive for many, the 2500X should be around $250 and the 2300X about half of that.  There were more overclocking results, which you can check out over at The Inquirer.

"This week, Hong Kong site XFastest got its mitts on a fresh and so-far-unannounced version of the chip, the Ryzen 5 2500X. According to the site, the incoming processor is a four-core, eight-thread chip, and features a 3.6GHz base clock with a 4.0GHz boost clock."

I'd be pretty surprised if the 2500x was over $200.00. Pretty sure the 1500x it replaces MSRP was $190.00

wild ass guess based off of UK pricing

Heh your guess is quite way off, 2600x msrp is $229 and 2600 is $199.

As a 2xxx series Ryzen, does that mean that the chip will have embedded GPU?

{Just as the 2400G models do}

No. G or GE is for desktop APU. X or no character is for non-gpu dekstop cpu. It will have full x16 pcie 3.0 lane for graphics card, unlike APUs 8x.

Just FYI but the 4C/8T Ryzen CPU's are in the ballpark of the i7-3770K (depending on overclock... I'm comparing to mine at 4.4GHz).

I got exactly HALF the Blender score as the R7-1800X when it launched (8C/16T) and further tests show my older i7 to be similar per core.

So if you have a CPU like mine you want at minimum an R5-2600 (6-core) or comparable Intel CPU otherwise it's not worth the upgrade... assuming you also have a need for the extra CPU performance too.

Of course DDR4 bandwidth still goes a long way so don't forget about that.
