AMD Announced it’s 3rd generation Ryzen processor, based on the 7nm process. The market release decided during the company’s Computex 2019 keynote speech for this 7nm CPUs is the 7th day of the 7th month OF 2019.
This is the company’s third iteration of Zen Architecture also known as Zen 2 or Matisse.
The Zen Series
Zen (“Summit Ridge“)—Ryzen 1000 series
Zen+ (“Pinnacle Ridge“)—Ryzen 2000 series
Zen 2 (“Matisse“)—Ryzen 3000 series
Zen 3 (“TBA“)—Ryzen 4000 series?
Here one may get confused as it is zen 2 while this is the third iteration, even the processors series starts with 3000 or Ryzen 3000 series. Nevertheless, the most important things about these processors are the claimed high performance.
The performance not only matches the rival (Intel) but exceeds in many scenarios.
AMD’s Power of 7 nm technology
AMD the 7 nm manufacturing Process with help of TSMC and Zen 2 architecture is one of the main factor responsible for the performance.
The new Matisse architecture and 7 nm process has provided AMD an edge over its main rival Intel which is still using 14nm.
These new chips are not only faster but more energy efficient as well, AMD also claims 15 percent improvement of instructions per second over last generation architecture.
To show us the capability and for comparision, AMD compared Ryzen 9 3900X with Intel Corei9-9920X in Blender and the Ryzen 7 3700X beating the Core i7-9700K in Cinebench R20 by up to 30 percent. which shows the multithreaded load performance capability. In single thread also both are neck on neck.
Not only that the new Chipset (X570 Motherboard) with now equipped with PCIe Gen 4.0., This means now the PCIe connection supports 64GB/s transfer rate which is just double of PCIe 3.0.
Other improvements include larger caches, Reduced latencies, and other architectural enhancements.
