AMD is an underdog whose name is well known in the world now, and it hasn’t disappointed its fans for once. After such a long time, the company has reasserted itself with its Zen CPU architecture which showed us two generations of Ryzen and. Threadripper. Now it is time for the launch of the third generation Ryzen. The company first showed us its third generation of Ryzen processor this year at CES, and they showed us two slices of silicon which were on the same package. It held a 7nm 8-core chipset for the main processor. On the other hand was a larger 14nm input/output chiplet with dual memory controllers and PCIe lanes. Moreover, it is possible that Zen 2 will scale beyond eight cores, but it has yet to be confirmed.
There have been many leaks which show us its specs and the price but keep in mind all this hasn’t been confirmed yet. These leaks and rumors come from AdoredTV, who have claimed to have received the following product list from a tipster:
• Ryzen 9 3850X—16C/32T, 4.3GHz to 5.1GHz, 135W TDP, $499
• Ryzen 9 3800X—16C/32T, 3.9GHz to 4.7GHz, 125W TDP, $449
• Ryzen 7 3700X—12C/24T, 4.2GHz to 5.0GHz, 105W TDP, $329
• Ryzen 7 3700—12C/24T, 3.8GHz to 4.6GHz, 95W TPD, $299
• Ryzen 5 3600X—8C/16T, 4.0GHz to 4.8GHz, 95W TDP, $229
• Ryzen 5 3600—8C/16T, 3.6GHz to 4.4GHz, 65W TDP, $178
• Ryzen 3 3300X—6C/12T, 3.5GHz to 4.3GHz, 65W TDP, $129
• Ryzen 3 3300—6C/12T, 3.2GHz to 4.0GHz, 50W TDP, $99
Now, let us talk about the performance. Ryen 3000 will surpass the Ryzen 2000 in terms of performance. The additional cores threads will benefit multi-threaded workloads, and it will have faster clockspeeds—a 16-core/32-thread processor that hits 5.1GHz is an enticing proposition. AMD showed us the sample of an 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 3000 series processor edging ahead of Intel’s Core i9-9900K, the best CPU for gaming, in Cinebench R15. Dr. Su said that at the time the AMD chip was not at its final frequency, which insinuates that the launch product will be even faster than what was shown on stage. The chip consumed less power which is around 26% less, and it peaks over133W versus Core i9-9900K that bumps up 180W. Also, Dr. Su at Computex 2019 in Taiwan on May 27 will “provide new details about the next generation of high-performance AMD platforms and products,” including Ryzen 3000 and Navi (GPU). The update of AMD Ryzen 3000 is yet to be revealed, but AMD has said that third generation of Ryzen will ship in mid-2019.
