I'd suggest these chips are known colloquially as "Ryzen 2" because tech writers don't pay attention to Road Maps and/or care about accuracy - https://images.anandtech.com/doci/12233/x86_to_2020.jpg


If I'm not mistaken, AMD had to use "Ryzen" rather than "Zen" due solely to trademark issues, no?


Feel free to use the correct term "Pinnacle Ridge" if accuracy means anything to you.

Correction: these chips are Ryzen+, not Ryzen 2. Basically the same chips on a slightly improved node (12LP).

The Ryzen 2000-series CPUs are the second generation Ryzen chips, hence why they're known colloquially as 'Ryzen 2' processors. They're using the Zen+ architecture on the new 12nm production process, so they're not actually called Ryzen+.


The 7nm Zen 2 processors are unlikely to use the same Ryzen nomenclature so I wouldn't expect there to be a Ryzen 2 name to go along with the Zen 2 architecture.
