AMD is coming out of its 50th anniversary showcasing their upcoming 3rd-gen Ryzen processors
We’re almost at the footstep of AMD’s 3rd-gen series of Ryzen 3000 series processors. Should we be excited? Yes, because since AMD first launched Ryzen back in 2017, we found the first company to compete against Intel.
More so, AMD CPU’s often have higher multi-core efficiency and lower heat generation than their Intel counterparts. Overall, AMD offers more quality-per-buck than the industry’s chip-making leader.
The upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs
Wheres, the 2nd-gen Ryzen 3000 entry level processors had four cores, the new ones will deliver massive performance improvement. The forthcoming family, which includes a vast array of new processors, offers between 6 cores chips -at entry level- all the way up to high-end 16 core.
Even more impressive is the 2nd-gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper, which offers 32 cores and 64 threads. However, AMD hasn’t confirmed the new version of the AMD Threadripper just yet.
AMD’s CEO Lisa Su already demonstrated an 8-core Ryzen 300 with the 7nm processor last year. The chip outperformed Intel’s super-expensive and top-of-the-market i9 9900K in Cinebench scores. What’s best, and as I said before, it consumed fewer watts than its Intel competition.
Six core and 12 core Ryzen 3000 series processors
According to the rumors, AMD is launching about 12 Ryzen 3000 series CPUs in the coming months. The official debut is Computex conference in June.
The chips will cover any needs you could have in the desktop market, from $100 budget-friendly pieces to no-compromise $500 processors for PC build enthusiasts.
Entry level AMD Ryzen 3 3300X, 3300G, and 3300
The budget-segment AMD Ryzen 3 have integrated graphics, two cores, 12 threads, and feature Zen architecture.
Mid-range AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, 3600G, and 3600
Next in the series, we find the mid-range segment with three new chips. These alternatives have eight cores, 16 threads, and come with or without integrated graphics.
In the entry-level segment, AMD is said to be readying three new Ryzen 3 processors, with and without integrated graphics. All are featuring 6 Zen 2 cores and 12 threads.
High-end AMD Ryzen 7 3700 and 3700
Climbing the dollars ladder, we find two new 12 core/24 thread pieces. These Ryzen CPUs ship with high clock speeds and deliver all-rounded performance.
Ultra-high-end AMD Ryzen 9 3850X and 3800X
These top of the line Ryzen CPUs feature 16 cores and 32 threads. However, there’s not much information about these alternatives just yet.
