A leak has recently surfaced on new power-efficient processors that are from the 2nd Generation of Ryzen processors. This information comes from ASRock, a well-known motherboard manufacturer and the processors are called the Ryzen 5 2600E and Ryzen 7 2700E.

The processors will consist of six and eight cores for the Ryzen 5 and 7 respectively, similar to the X-series of the same processors but they will have a TDP of only 45W which is more than half of the X-series. The Ryzen 5 E 2600E will come with a base clock of 3.1GHz while the Ryzen 7 2700E will have a base clock of 3.7GHz. However, the boost clock speeds are still unknown as of now. These processors are probably made to go against the Intel Core T processors which were branded as power-optimized lifestyle chips, as the Intel processors have a TDP of only 35W.
