AMD Launches Ryzen 3000 Series CPU with Up to 12 Cores
The AMD today announced its next generation series of CPUs Ryzen 3000 of 7 nm with up to 12 cores and 24 threads, at Computex 2019.
AMD Monday dropped its long-awaited 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X at Computex on Monday, saying that it will outpace Intel’s 12-core CPUs for almost a third to half the price—and that’s just an inkling of AMD’s 7nm onslaught against Intel and Nvidia.
Along with the 7-nanometer Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards , AMD has finally officially unveiled the Ryzen 3000 processors. Unlike 3D-cards, the creators not only revealed specific models of the series, but also their specs and even cost.
Following AMD’s successful performance with its first and second-generation Ryzen processors, the company has now launched its third generation Ryzen family at Computex. Named Ryzen 3, these processors are all based on AMD’s 7nm Zenn cores and use the same socket AM4 as previous models for continuity and ease of upgrades.
And all Ryzen 3 processors will become the first CPUs to use the next-generation PCIe 4 platform for even faster performance. With its Ryzen 3 architecture, AMD has seen a 15% increase in pulse instruction (CPI), double the cache size to improve gaming performance, and double floating-point performance for creative workloads.
There are five of them: Ryzen 5 3600, Ryzen 5 3600Х, Ryzen 7 3700Х, Ryzen 7 3800Х and Ryzen 9 3900Х. Specification and prices of processors are as follows:
|Model||Cost, $||Number of cores / threads||TDP, W||Frequency, GHz||Cache size, MB||Number of PCIe 4.0 lines|
|Ryzen 5 3600||200||6/12||65||3.6-4.2||35||20|
|Ryzen 5 3600X||250||6/12||95||3.8-4.2||35||20|
|Ryzen 7 3700X||330||8/16||65||3.6-4.4||36||20|
|Ryzen 7 3800X||400||8/16||105||3.9-4.5||36||20|
|Ryzen 9 3900X||500||12/24||105||3.8-4.6||70||20|
There will be three models of the Ryzen 3 processor. The Ryzen 7 3700X will be the basic model of AMD, which has eight cores and 16 threads and a basic speed of 3.6GHz that can go up to 4.4GHz. The chip supports 36 MB of full cache and requires 65 Watts TDP.
At the enthusiast level of AMD’s processing spectrum is the Ryzen 7 3800X processor , which shares the same eight- and 16-segment performance as the 3700X. Here, the user achieves faster 4.5 GHz acceleration speeds and basic 3.9 GHz speeds with 36 MB of total cache and 105 watt TDP.
And finally, at the top of the Ryzen family of AMD is a powerful Ryzen 9 processor with 12 cores and 24 threads, designed to compete directly with Intel Core i9-9920X. The Ryzen 9 3900X has a base clock of 3.8GHz that can go up to 4.6GHz in boost, comes with 70MB of total cache and operates in a TDP of 105 watts. In a 3D rendering demonstration using Blender compared to the Intel Core i9-9920X, Ryzen 9 completed the task in 32 seconds versus 38 seconds of competition. AMD claims an improvement of 18% in a direct core-to-core test, since the Intel processor also has 12 cores.
All processors will be available from July 7, and prices start at $ 329 for AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, $ 399 for Ryzen 7 3800X and $ 499 for Ryzen 9 3900X. Ryzen 9, as highlighted by Su, costs less than half the $ 1,100 sale price of the Intel Core i9-9900X.
