We are officially just half a month from the release of highly expected 7nm AMD Ryzen 3000 based series of processors. It is leaked among the market and it is absolutely fast and showing no signs of slowing down.
AMD Ryzen 9 is incredible
The latest release from the AMD is nothing short of a whopper, and so straight away it makes a dig into the juicy bits.
It was just about three weeks before a 16 core member of the advanced sibling of AMD’s chip-based processor next generation Zen 2 microarchitecture was leaked in the market. And only after two days we came to know that CPU was affirmed and proclaimed as the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. It is unleashed in the market as one of the fastest of its kind till date and the world’s first ever Gaming 16 core processor.
The 16 core processor unleashed as Ryzen 9 runs at a whopping clock speed of 3.5GHz and accompanied by a boost of 4.7GHz. But it is very important to know that the 16 core processor which is the topic of the article doesn’t actually run at those frequencies. And we have found out that it may be an entirely different chip.
Does it meet the expectations:
So there was did a test run of the released chip and we found the results somewhat different. It is 32 thread processor consisting of 16 cores with a stock frequency of 3.3GHz. It is 200 MHz below that of the Ryzen 9. But something which is crucial is that it is still running on the all-core overclocked frequency of 5.2 GHz.
The base frequency of the processor excludes that the processor is 3950X. It clearly suggests that it is yet unreleased Ryzen 9 processor or just an engineering sample which AMD is testing. The latter idea is simple because it really makes no sense to introduce another 16 core processor. The only differentiating factor between the two being is lower based clock speed. Slice it either way it explains that AMD’s new release is capable of reaching high clock speeds.
