According to the Chinese portal Bilibili, sources from the motherboard manufacturers, the Ryzen 3000 processors of the Zen 2 family “will improve by 15%” with respect to the equivalents of the Ryzen 2000 series. This statement, unfortunately, is exempt from an important detail: if it refers to performance, energy efficiency or what. However, it has been confirmed that the new AMD chips will have much thermal margin to perform overclocks. On the other hand, it is said that the new Ryzen will have a “general” frequency of 4.5 GHz. It is important to emphasize that these data would correspond to the first test models, so that those will arrive at the stores will present better results
Now, just with that appreciation that the 4.5 GHz will be common, we can expect the new processors to go even further. The Zen 2 architecture will improve several aspects of what is currently known, such as doubling the floating point performance thanks to better support with AVX. This change will allow AMD to improve its performance in accordance with what tasks. A generalized improvement of the CPI would be useful in some cases, but temper our enthusiasm, since this is useful in very specific cases. The interesting thing will be the improvements in the memory controller, that although they will not be as big as expected, they will be welcome no matter how light they may be.
