In the Computex event held in Taipei. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su announced the third generation Ryzen 9 3900X with 12 Cores and 24 Threads. It is based on the Zen 2 chiplet architecture. It is the World’s first 12 core CPU to be announced for the mainstream PC usage.
Along with Ryzen 9, four other CPUs were also announced, belonging in the Ryzen 7 and the Ryzen 5 series. All the CPUs are up to be launched on July 7th. And all the above-mentioned CPUs will have PCIe Gen 4.0 enabled. AMD is really taking advantage of their outsourced fabrication process. Dropping their process to 7nm, they significantly increased their performance while keeping their prices really reasonable.
This time around AMD is really competing hard with Intel and they even might excel in capturing the interest of PC enthusiasts more than Intel. Afterall there is nothing that beats the price to performance ratios that AMD has to offer. And now they are even bringing their own flagship in the game.
- Ryzen 5 3600|6 cores|12 threads|65 W TDP| 3.6 GHz – 4.2 GHz

On the GPU side they are bringing their RX 5000 series with the brand new Radeon DNA (RDNA) along with GCN architecture. It is already confirmed that next-gen consoles will use the new AMD cards to bring out next-gen performance.
In-depth AMD GPU will be covered in another post soon.
Have a great day!
