No comments

AMD is turning heads once again as it fully unveils its latest Ryzen CPUs and Radeon RX GPUs during its keynote at COMPUTEX 2019. Dr. Lisa Su took the stage and highlights the capabilities of its new series of CPUs, with its new topdog Ryzen 9 3900X CPU taking the spotlight.

Continuing its path of PC leadership and industry firsts, AMD announced the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor, the most advanced desktop processor in the world with ground-breaking performance across gaming, productivity, and content creation applications.

Based on the new “Zen 2” core architecture with AMD chiplet design approach, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors are expected to offer more performance-critical on-die cache than ever before to unleash elite gaming performance. Additionally, all 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processors are supported by the world’s first PCIe 4.0 PC readiness for the most advanced motherboards, graphics, and storage technologies available, setting a new standard of performance and providing the ultimate consumer experience.

At COMPUTEX 2019, AMD’s reveal of the 3rd gen Ryzen desktop processor family also marked as the first appearance of the Ryzen 9 desktop processor with the flagship 12 core/24 thread Ryzen 9 3900X.

With the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor family, AMD introduced a new category of Ryzen 9 desktop processor with the flagship 12 core/24 thread Ryzen 9 3900X. Pushing the high-performance envelope for socket AM4 by offering leadership performance, the family is rounded out with 8 core Ryzen 7 models and 6 core Ryzen 5 models.


During the keynote, Dr. Su showed various live demonstrations highlighting leadership performance of the 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processors versus competitive production parts:

    • Ryzen™ 7 3700X vs. i7-9700K with real-time rendering: The Ryzen 7 3700X offered 1% more  single-threaded, and 30% more in multi-threaded performance.

    • Ryzen™ 7 3800X vs. i9-9900K with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gameplay: The Ryzen 7 3800X matched the performance of the i9-9900K.

    • Ryzen™ 9 3900X vs. i9-9920X with Blender Render: The Ryzen 9 3900X beat the Intel i9 9920X by more than 16%.

AMD also introduced a new X570 chipset for socket AM4, supporting the world’s first PCIe 4.0 readiness, which exhibited 42% faster storage performance than PCIe 3.0i, enabling high-performance graphics card, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more. With PCIe 4.0 doubling the bandwidth for motherboards with the X570 chipset over PCIe 3.0, PC enthusiasts can gain more performance and flexibility when building custom systems. 


The X570 offers the broadest ecosystem readiness in AMD history, with over 50 new motherboard models anticipated from ASRock, Asus, Colorful, Gigabyte, MSI, as well as PCIe 4.0 storage solutions from partners including Galaxy, Gigabyte, and Phison. The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors are expected to be available for purchase globally on July 7, 2019.  

In addition, major OEMs and System Integrators, including Acer, Asus, CyberPowerPC, HP, Lenovo, and MAINGEAR reinforced strong ecosystem support for the new platforms by announcing plans to offer 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processor-based gaming desktop systems over the coming months.

AMD High-Performance Gaming Updates 


AMD unveiled RDNA, the next foundational gaming architecture that was designed to drive the future of PC gaming, console, and cloud for years to come. With a new compute unit design, RDNA is expected to deliver incredible performance, power and memory efficiency in a smaller package compared to the previous generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. It is projected to provide up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt over GCN, enabling better gaming performance at lower power and reduced latency.

RDNA will power the upcoming 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards which feature high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface. 

During the keynote, Dr. Su showcased the power of RDNA and one of the new AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards in a head-to-head comparison with a RTX 2070 card running a Strange Brigade gameplay demo, beating the competition delivering incredible ~100 FPS gaming.

AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards are expected to be available in July 2019. Learn more at the AMD E3 livestream event on June 10, 2019 at 3 pm PT.
