AMD has announced that the 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs will release in mid 2019. The red team claimed that these CPUs will be the first 7nm gaming CPUs, will be the world’s first mainstream CPUs to support PCIe 4.0 x16, and will run on the same motherboards.
At CES 2019, AMD demoed an eight-core model with a not finalized frequency against Intel’s high-end Core i9 9900K and the 3rd generation Ryzen CPU was slightly faster. Not only that, but the AMD chip draws less power than the Intel chip.
AMD also showcased Forza Horizon 4 running on the 3rd generation Ryzen CPU at 1080p on Ultra settings with more than 100fps at all times.
The red team did not reveal any additional details about these CPUs, so we don’t know how they will be called, their default frequencies, their boost frequencies, or the cores/threads that will be available per model.
We expect AMD to reveal more details in early Summer, so stay tuned for more!
