An online retailer has published a complete list of all processors of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series, an evolution that will be based on Zen 2 Architecture, according to our regular readers, a comprehensive renovation that will mark a before and after in comparison to Zen and Zen+.
Zen and Zen+ Architecture
If you are not aware of the differences between Zen 2 and Zen+, let us remind you that the first step marks the leap into the 7 nm manufacturing process, the outsourcing of memory control and the set of I/O elements to a 14 nm chip that is responsible for connecting and communicating all the cores of the CPU that are also based on chiplets. Each chip has two CCX units, i.e. eight physical cores that can process a total of sixteen threads using SMT technology.
The NAVI architecture would be the first to get rid of GCN in a long time, and thus the limit of 4096 SP (Stream Processors). In addition, it would be fabricated according to the procedure of 7nm that we saw for the first time in the Radeon VII (Vega to 7nm), although some comments indicated that the first yields did not come out with sufficient quality so that its possible release was postponed, and displacement and displacement.
Therefore, the latest industry rumor suggests that AMD has informed its partners to prepare their cards exactly one month after the launch of the new Ryzen 3000 processors at 7nm.
It will also bring important improvements that will allow IPC and operating frequencies to be increased. This article, dedicated to Zen 2 and all its keys, will be deepened at the architectural level, so I invite you to take a look if you have any doubts.
AMD Ryzen Family
To return to the list published by this retailer, we find four large ranges integrated into the AMD Ryzen 3000 series: Ryzen 9, a novelty that now brings together the most powerful models; Ryzen 7, which goes from top to bottom to stay as high as possible; Ryzen 5, which stays as mediocre as possible; and Ryzen 3, which stays as low as possible.
- Ryzen 9 3800X and 3850X: 16 cores and 32 threads at maximum 4.7 GHz, with a TDP of 125 watts. Its price at the time of exchange would be between 505 and 550 dollars.
- Ryzen 7 3700X and 3700: 12 cores and 24 wires at a maximum of 5 GHz, with a TDP of up to 105 watts. The exchange price will be between 335 and 370 dollars.
- Ryzen 5 3600X and 3600: 8 cores and 16 threads at maximum 4.8 GHz, with a TDP of up to 95 watts. They will have an approximate price of 200 and 250 dollars.
- Ryzen 3 3300X and 3300: 6 cores and 12 wires at maximum 4.3 GHz, with a TDP of up to 65 watts. The price is between 110 and 145 dollars, depending on the model chosen.
There is no doubt that the introduction of 16-core and 32-thread processors in the general consumer market will be one of the main innovations of the AMD Zen 2 processors, but we have to set it in terms of selling prices.
If everything we’ve seen so far is true, Zen 2 could “break” the market again. Until a few years ago, six-core processors were unaffordable for users with tight budgets. This changed with the arrival of Zen and could be repeated with the introduction of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors. The six-core and twelve-thread processors in the Ryzen 3000 generation would be located in the middle lower range and would have a starting price of $110, a figure we could only buy a four-core four-thread chip at the moment. Hopefully, this is certainly the case, especially as this democratization of multicore processors is accompanied by an improvement in gross performance and clock frequencies, which will only intensify competition between AMD and Intel.
