In 2019, AMD announced their 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs based on Zen 2 Core architecture and GPU based on brand new Radeon Navi Architecture(RDNA). AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs and Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs are the first platform to feature 7nm technology and PCIe 4.0. These CPUs and GPUs provide greater performance along with faster cooler and lower power consumption according to AMD. Both CPUs and GPUs will be available globally from july 7, 2019.
AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs
Ryzen 3000 CPUs are the first 7nm processor based on Zen 2 core architecture. AMD manage to increase the Instruction Per Cycle(IPC) by 15% over the last generation of Ryzen CPUs. They managed to increase cache size by double which greatly reduce the memory latency for gaming. Floating point is also increased to provide better performance in creative workload. Check out the bellow table for more details on Ryzen 3000 series CPUs.
Ryzen vs Intel: Productivity
After the release of 1st generation Ryzen CPUs, we have seen that AMD are better at heavily multi-threaded productivity tasks like video transcoding and editing. This time AMD even manage to beat or go head to head with Intel processor in single threaded tasks. The comparison was done between Ryzen 9 3900X($499) and I9 9920X(~$1200) in Cinebench R20 and 3900X manage to outperform Intel i9 9920X by 14% in single thread performance and 6% in multi-thread performance.
Ryzen vs Intel: Gaming
AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs are going head to head against Intel CPUs in gaming performance. They also demonstrate what Ryzen CPUs are capable of by playing game and streaming at same time and comparing it with i9 9900k processor. From the bellow image you can see that these test are done in “slow” quality preset and in 1080p resolution and the result was outstanding. AMD able to transfer 98.6% frames to audience while Intel able to transfer 2.1% frames.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs
AMD Radeon RX 5700 series GPU are based on 7nm Navi architecture. AMD claim that new graphics card provide 25% performance increase per-clock and 50% performance increase per-watt over the last generation. These GPUs introduce new compute unit pipeline, multilevel cache hierarchy and streamlined graphics pipeline. Check out the bellow table for more details.
RX 5700XT is 2-20% faster than Nvidia RTX 2070 and RX 5700 is 2-16% faster than Nvidia RTX 2060 in gaming. These result may ot may not be accurate so wait until we get our hand on these GPUs which will be available after july 7, 2019.
Radeon Navi Architecture(RDNA) features
Navi is a new architecture for AMD graphics card and the first one to support PCIe 4.0. This new architecture provide features like Radeon Media Engine and Radeon DIsplay Engine. Radeon media engine support for 4k encode and 4k decode, free sync and HDR. And Radeon display engine support display port 1.4, stream compression and much more.
AMD for Gaming
With introduction of completely new Navi Architecture, AMD is trying to implement this architecture across all platform. From 2019 onward we will be able to see AMD graphics in PC, Console, Cloud and in mobile. Sony, Xbox and Google already announce that the next generation console and Google streaming server “STADIA” will be powered by AMD Radeon GPU.
