It looks like AMD is planning on releasing a more energy-efficient variant of its Ryzen 7 2700 CPU, known as the Ryzen 7 2700E. The CPU recently had its 3DMark system info result posted online.
According to the 3DMark specs sheet, the CPU will still retain the same 8-cores, 16-threads layout, come with a default core clockspeed of 2.8GHz, but will only have a TDP of just 45W. That’s 60W less than AMD’s current top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 2700X, and 50W less than the Ryzen 7 1800X.
To be fair, this isn’t the first time that the CPUs have been named or spotted online. To date, the 2700E has been mentioned and listed down on ASRock’s CPU support list for its AB350M Pro4 motherboard.
Additionally, the ASRock CPU support list also shows an energy-saving Ryzen 5 2600E in its list. While there’s not 3DMark system info about the CPU, the list does show that the 2600E shares the same power draw as the 2700E, but will have a lower base clockspeed of 3.1GHz.
At the time writing, AMD did not provide a release date for the Ryzen 7 2700E, or when it intends to bring it into Malaysia.
