Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, unveiled the long-awaited 7-nanometer processors of the desktop segment. The third generation of the Ryzen processors arrives with the Ryzen 9 3900X to be the great highlight. With 12 cores and 24 threads, it comes with an announced price of $ 499.
This may even seem like an expensive processor. But if we take into account that its competitor is the Intel Core i9-9920X 12-core, which costs between 1200 and 1300 euros in Portugal, the conversation is different. After all, we’ll get the same performance for half the price.
The great attraction of this presentation is even the Ryzen 9 3900X and it is in him that we are going to concentrate. In addition to the 12 cores and 24 threads, the new AMD processor is, according to the manufacturer, more efficient than the competition. It comes with a TDP of 105W, with the 165W of the competing Intel model.
The Ryzen 9 3900X has a base speed of 3.8GHz and a Turbo boost of 4.6GHz. In terms of cache, we will have a total of 70MB. This will certainly be a processor that for its quality-price will please many of the players worldwide. For those who do not want top performance, AMD presented four more solutions.
These are the 5 processors presented by AMD:
- Ryzen 9 3900X – 12 cores / 24 threads – 3.8GHz / 4.6GHz – 499 dollars
- Ryzen 7 3800X – 8 cores / 16 threads – 3.9GHz / 4.5GHz – 399 dollars
- Ryzen 7 3700X – 8 cores / 16 threads – 3.6GHz / 4.4GHz – $ 329
- Ryzen 5 3600X – 6 cores / 12 threads – 3.8GHz / 4.4GHz – $ 249
- Ryzen 5 3600 – 6 cores / 12 threads – 3.8GHz / 4.4GHz – $ 199
There is no doubt that AMD’s great purpose with this release is to beat its competitor in price, efficiency, and performance. These will reach the US market starting July 7, and could be a good competition for the leader in this segment – Intel. AMD made this announcement during Computex 2019. This is the largest annual computing event and will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, until June 1.
