All three of the hono­red 2nd Gen Ryzen pro­ces­sors are built using power­ful 12nm “Zen+” x86 pro­ces­sor archi­tec­tu­re. With 32 cores and 64 threads, the Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per 2990WX powers the ulti­ma­te com­pu­ting expe­ri­en­ces for crea­tors and enthu­si­asts’ most inten­se workloads, while the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600 empower gamers and enthu­si­asts with incredi­ble mul­tipro­ces­sing per­for­mance and enhan­ced capa­bi­li­ties.

Inno­va­ti­on in com­pu­ting enab­les mea­ning­ful new expe­ri­en­ces and capa­bi­li­ties in gaming, vir­tu­al rea­li­ty, and digi­tal crea­ti­on, and thus it’s a spe­cial honor for AMD to recei­ve this reco­gni­ti­on from CTA and Trusted Reviews for desi­gning cate­go­ry-defi­ning pro­duc­ts in the second genera­ti­on of AMD Ryzen and AMD Ryzen Thre­ad­rip­per pro­ces­sors,” said AMD chief mar­ke­ting offi­cer John Tay­lor. “The­se indus­try ack­now­led­ge­ments reflect well on the lea­ding-edge tech­no­lo­gies AMD brings to high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting and the mil­li­ons of AMD Ryzen custo­mers.”

Pro­duc­ts ent­e­red in the CES Inno­va­ti­on Awards pro­gram are jud­ged by a panel of inde­pen­dent indus­tri­al desi­gners, engi­neers and mem­bers of the tra­de media to honor out­stan­ding design and engi­nee­ring in cut­ting-edge con­su­mer elec­tro­nics. The estee­med CES Inno­va­ti­on Awards are spon­so­red by the CTA™, owner and pro­du­cer of CES 2019, the glo­bal gathe­ring place for all who thri­ve on the busi­ness of con­su­mer tech­no­lo­gies and have been reco­gni­zing achie­ve­ments in pro­duct design and engi­nee­ring sin­ce 1976.
