AMD Reveals the Full Specifications of their Ryzen 3rd Generation Lineup

After their Computex 2019 keynote, AMD has officially revealed the specifications of their Ryzen 3rd Generation processors, including their planned Ryzen 9, 7 and 5 models, which range from 6-core processors to 12-core models, each of which features hyperthreading.  

With Zen 2 AMD promises a 2x increase in cache sizes, a 2x boost in floating point performance and a 15% boost in IPC, enabling a huge generational improvement over Ryzen 1st and 2nd Generation processors, especially given the clock speed increases that AMD is offering. 

In the list below we have two processors that AMD didn’t include in their Computex Keynote, the Ryzen 53600X and the Ryzen 5 3600, two six-core models which offer boost clocks beyond 4GHz. In fact, every Ryzen 3rd Generation processor that AMD has announced has a base clock speed of over 3.5GHz and a boost clock speed that’s 4.2GHz or over, which is impressive given the clock speeds that are offered by AMD’s existing Ryzen parts.

AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Generation processors are set to be a big deal for gamers, with larger cache sizes and single-core clock speeds enabling increased single-threaded performance and decreased memory latencies, enabling increased game performance. In the sides above AMD notes performance gains of up between 14% and 34% in popular gaming titles, which is great news for PC gamers. 

AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Generation processors will launch on July 7th.
