    Possible Kitguru leak - Ryzen 2 Feb launch, 12 cores and 4.6Ghz?

    Saw this slide on Reddigg and surprised to not see it discussed here. Frequency range is close to what I expected, however think 5Ghz is BS without serious OC, single core perhaps? Doubt it. Speeds approaching 4.5Ghz should be no problem with a small process change, moving away from their...
