On May 27th, Computex, one of the most important technology that took place every year in Asia, was chosen by AMD to formally present its new generation of Ryzen processors with the 3000 series, with the premiere update of the architecture and its manufacturing process.
With this presentation, the North American company has confirmed many of the rumors and leaks that have revolved around these new processors in recent months, calling especially the attention of the new Ryzen 3900X as the first processor of the domestic range to offer a total of 12 cores and 24 threads. The focus of attention of users is now whether this new iteration of AMD can deal with an Intel that, although affected by the numerous delays in its 10nm manufacturing process, still retains the leadership in the PC sector.
If AMD can overcome or not this barrier we will know how to get closer to its planned launch date for next July, but until then, and to clarify this question, we review in this reporatje what we are for the five key points of the new Ryzen 3000.
Much of this advantage comes from the fact that they have traditionally enjoyed a better mono-core performance compared to the offer of the red company, leaving the strength of this in a greater number of nuclei and a competitive price, forced mainly by the sales of its competition. With the launch of the eighth generation of Intel processors, this also threatened the advantage of AMD in tasks that take advantage of a large number of cores while maintaining the leadership in the other factors, even in spite of the difference in prices of the different products. of both companies.
Thus, AMD needed with this new generation to meet two objectives: equal or surpass Intel in what has been its traditional fief, video games and take away the podium of the most powerful processor in the domestic range. A position that the Mountain View company has been treasuring for more than a decade.
This is especially striking in the case of the Ryzen 3800X that we could see in a slight test equal to the Intel’s star processor, the i9 – 9900K, while running PUBG. A test that, although we do not know the totality of its conditions, strongly calls attention to being a field as dominated by the competition as videogames are.
