The Zen 2 core widely outperforms the historical generational performance improvement industry trend, up to 15% estimated instructions per clock (IPC) uplift over the predecessor Zen" architecture, according to AMD. The Zen 2 CPU core powering the next-generation Ryzen and EPYC processors also includes design improvements including lager cache sizes and a redesigned floating point engine.
The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor family includes the new 12-core Ryzen 9 processor, and the X570 chipset for socket AM4 is the world's first PCIe 4.0 supported chipset with more than 50 new motherboards at launch, the vendor said.
RDNA gaming architecture is designed to drive the future of PC gaming, console, and cloud, anticipated to deliver performance, power, and memory efficiency in a smaller package.
The 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series gaming graphics card family features high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface.
With the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor family, AMD introduced a new category of Ryzen 9 desktop processor with the flagship 12 core/24 thread Ryzen 9 3900X. Pushing the high-performance envelope for socket AM4 by offering leadership performance, the family is rounded out with 8-core Ryzen 7 models and 6-core Ryzen 5 models."
