AMD today released the new Zen 3 CPU architecture, and the Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors based on this architecture, which are digitally consistent with APU. Zen 3 still uses TSMC's 7nm FinFET process, but the actual changes are still relatively large.
The first is higher Boost frequency and IPC efficiency. Zen 3's IPC has increased by 19% compared to the previous generation product. At the same time, the Boost frequency has reached close to 5GHz while maintaining the same number of cores at the same level.
The official stated that the above improvements allow the Ryzen 5000 series processors to have better performance in the fields of content creation and games, and that the R9 5900X is the best gaming processor in the world.
In addition, a single CCX of the Zen 3 architecture has 8 CPU cores and can directly access the 32MB L3 cache. This can effectively alleviate the communication delay between the CPU cores, reduce the occurrence of cross-CCX access to the L3 cache, and improve the operating efficiency of the whole machine.
The products released this time are R9 5950X, R9 5900X, R7 5800X and R5 5600X. They are the same as the current Ryzen 3000 products in terms of core quantity and TDP, but have higher frequencies and higher prices.
In addition to the Wraith Stealth radiator provided by R5 5600X, none of the other three products currently launched provide a radiator. However, there is no need to worry about compatibility. After all, the 500 series motherboards can support the new processors, and the 400 series can also provide support after updating the BIOS.
AMD also finally released a preview of the RX 6000 series of graphics cards, and stated that this graphics card can run games such as Borderlands 3 and Gears of War 5 smoothly under 4K. Related products will be launched on the 29th of this month, so let's wait until the end of the month for relevant information.
