AMD does not sell 2800X because line-up




‘AMD does not sell 2800X because line-up is currently broad enough’
AMD does not currently appear to be planning to release a Ryzen 7 2800X to follow the 1800X last year. The company thinks the lineup with the 2700 and 2700X is wide enough, but seems to hold a possible 2800X behind.

The existence of a possible Ryzen 7 2800X was suggested during the event around the release of the Ryzen 2000 series by Jim Anderson of AMD, who spoke with DSOgaming . He says that AMD has the idea that the 2700 and 2700X are sufficient to occupy the current price and performance points for the time being.

Anderson indicates that this does not exclude that a 2800X ever comes on the market. It is possible that AMD keeps the processor as a competition for the Intel octacoreprocessor for socket 1151 , about which rumors are currently circulating.

AMD has released the Ryzen 2000 series this week . Currently only four Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 models have been released with respectively six and eight cores. In addition, two apu’s with four cores appeared. Tweakers has now extensively tested the Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 7 2700X.
