Ryzen 5000 processors, which will be based on the Zen 3 architecture, is scheduled for launch on October 8, less than two weeks away. Now the official AMD Ryzen account has released a video in which Lisa Su, the company’s CEO, promises that we will see record performances in the next series.
“For the sake of our customers and fans, Ryzen is always on the way to promoting and raising our computers to a higher standard, and Zen 3 will make this possible,” said Lisa Su. In other words, with Zen 3 architecture, it will be possible to reach new peaks in performance.
The next AMD processors are expected to feature a 17% IPC improvement and a new high-end model with a 10-core, 20-thread configuration. This will be a major blow to Intel, so we will see how the company responds to it.
As far as the official information is concerned, Zen 3 is based on an improved 7nm TSMC process with a 15% improved IPC, although expectations are even higher, as mentioned above.
AMD will strike twice in October, first with the arrival of Zen 3 on October 8th and then later this month with the announcement of the Radeon RX 6000 series based on RDNA 2. We’ll see if the GPUs will be able to fight the battle the way their CPUs do with Intel, although NVIDIA graphics cards are expected to keep ahead.
