AMD is on the rocking position once again. According to new rumors from the industry, the first tests of Zen 3 processors show even better results than expected. While the expected increase in CPI was in theory between 15% and 17%, tests show improvements of 20%, exceeding expectations.
Zen 3 performance up to 20% more as compared to Zen 2
This information was revealed by Twitter user Ice Universe, who usually filters information about smartphones, especially those from Samsung, and usually correctly guesses what will happen in the end. Although this is his first hardware leak, we can say that he is a reliable source because of his positive track record.
AMD has confirmed that they will definitively bring processors based on the new Zen 3 architecture to market this year. There is also news that memory support will exceed 4000MHz and the core clock will be about 200MHz higher than the corresponding Ryzen 3000 series processors, which means that the maximum boost clock for a single core can reach 4.9GHz or even almost 5GHz, while the all-core clock can reach 4.5GHz.
If AMD really achieves this 20% CPI increase plus the frequency improvements that 7nm+ promises, AMD will undoubtedly destroy Intel in all aspects, including price, performance, and consumption, so the Blues will clearly be in a tough spot. Like all rumors, we recommend that you take it with a grain of salt, so don’t get your hopes up too high until we have official news.
