MeeTime : Free Voice + Video Calls On HUAWEI Devices!

Apple has FaceTime, and now, HUAWEI has MeeTime, offering FREE video and voice calls.

Find out what features HUAWEI MeeTime offers over its competitors!

 

HUAWEI MeeTime : What Is It?

Like Apple FaceTime, HUAWEI MeeTime is a proprietary video and voice service that FREE video and voice calls, albeit only on their respective devices.

HUAWEI introduced MeeTime in EMUI 10.1, and it currently works with HUAWEI devices like :

But unlike claims of free Internet and calls through BeiDou, MeeTime actually delivers free voice and video calls.

 

HUAWEI MeeTime : Key Features

Of course, you can already make free voice and video calls on other apps, like WhatsApp and Telegram. So let’s find out what features HUAWEI MeeTime offers over their competitors :

Feature #1 : Full HD Quality

HUAWEI MeeTime supports video calling at resolutions of up to 1080p (Full HD) – 1920 x 1080 pixels.

And thanks to built-in optimisations (see below), it can maintain that video resolution even with weak cellular or Wi-Fi reception.

Feature #2 : Screen Sharing

HUAWEI MeeTime has a two-way Screen Sharing function that lets users share their screens while chatting, which can be extremely useful.

For instance, you can use it to share what flights you just found with your partner, without sending it as a separate message, or interrupting the chat.

Feature #3 : Third Party Support

While HUAWEI MeeTime is a proprietary technology limited to HUAWEI devices, they are encouraging third party vendors to integrate their devices. For example :

  • Kandao Meeting 360° : You can connect your HUAWEI device to this Kandao teleconferencing camera to take advantage of its pro-grade features.
  • Drift Ghost Action Cameras : You can connect your HUAWEI smartphone to a Drift Ghost camera strapped to your vehicle to livestream your adventures.

Feature #4 : Network Adaptation

In poor network conditions, HUAWEI MeeTime dynamically adapts to changes in bandwidth, and uses super resolution technology to compensate for the loss of video quality, in real time.

In addition, it uses the Link Turbo technology to dynamically switch between Wi-Fi and LTE to deliver the best possible speeds, without interruption.

Feature #5 : Low Light Adaptation

HUAWEI MeeTime adapts dynamically to low light conditions, using facial recognition technology and other optimisations.

Feature #6 : End-to-End Encryption

In addition to working only on HUAWEI devices, HUAWEI MeeTime requires you to sign-in with a HUAWEI ID.

To assuage concerns of privacy, all calls are encrypted end-to-end by default. This guarantees that no one else can listen into your conversations.

Intel Foveros 3D Stacking Technology : A Quick Primer!

The new Intel Lakefield hybrid processors use Foveros 3D stacking technology to create such compact and power-efficient processors.

Here is a quick primer on Intel Foveros, and how it lets Intel stack different components into such a tiny chip!

 

Intel Foveros : What Is It?

Intel Foveros is a 3D stacking technology that basically stacks combines two or more dies into a single package, to offer :

  • Standby power 1/10th of competing designs
  • 50% better graphics performance
  • 40% core area reduction
  • 40% Z height reduction

 

Intel Foveros : 3D Stacking Explained!

Intel Foveros more accurately refers to how they stack the two logic dies, using the Foveros connection.

The Base Die, which consists of logic for audio, USB, USF 3.x and PCI Gen 3 controllers, are manufactured on the Intel P1222 process, which is a 22nm FinFET Low Power process, optimised for low current leakage.

The Compute Die on top has the four Tremont low-power cores, and single Sunny Cove high-performance core, as well as up to 64 Gen11 graphics cores. This die is fabricated on P1274 – their 10 nm process technology.

Intel then stacks up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X memory on top of this Foveros-stacked package using standard Package-on-Package (PoP) stacking technology.

This Intel video shows how they manufacture Foveros packages, and turn them into processors.

 

Intel Foveros : First Used In Intel Lakefield

The first processors to use Foveros is the Intel Lakefield hybrid processors, which stacks two logic dies with two DRAM layers, creating a package that is only 12 cubic mm in volume!

This allows them to create a single-sided compute board that is just 30 x 123 mm in size, with standby power as low as 2.5 mW!

Fact Check : AMD Ryzen 4000 Will Use 5nm TSMC Process?

Is it true that the upcoming AMD Ryzen 4000 (Zen 3) desktop processors will be fabricated on the 5nm TSMC process, instead of 7nm as announced? Let’s find out!

 

AMD Ryzen 4000 : Zen 2 | Zen 3

At CES 2020, AMD launched the Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors, which only just kicked off after delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

AMD is expected to introduce the Ryzen 4000 family of desktop processors, built on a newer Zen 3 microarchitecture, later this year.

AMD’s naming convention confuses people, because the Ryzen 4000 mobile processors are 3rd Gen Ryzen processors, while the upcoming Ryzen 4000 desktop processors will be 4th Gen Ryzen processors.

To make it easier for you to understand, we created this table to differentiate the two processor families.

Specifications Ryzen 4000

Ryzen 4000
Mobile
Ryzen Generation 4th Gen 3rd Gen
Microarchitecture Zen 3 Zen 2
Fabrication Process Improved 7 nm 7 nm
Launch Date Late 2020 Jan 2020

 

DigiTimes : AMD Ryzen 4000 Will Use 5nm TSMC Process

A DigiTimes article, purportedly translated and posted by RetiredEngineer, claimed that the next-generation AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop processors, using the Zen 3 microarchitecture, will be fabricated on the brand-new 5nm process technology, instead of 7nm as announced earlier.

Rumor has it that AMD and TSMC have adjusted their foundry blueprints. The Ryzen 4000 series of desktop processors originally expected to launch at the end of 2020 will now use TSMC’s enhanced 5nm process (5nm Plus) instead of 7nm EUV, clearly demonstrating that AMD is now considered a tier-one customer for TSMC.

This new development confirms earlier news that TSMC, which only recently entered the 5nm era in April, is accelerating its enhanced 5nm process, bringing forward the mass production schedule to 4Q; and the enhanced 5nm Ryzen series processors will also put unprecedented pressure on Intel. Both TSMC and AMD declined to comment on rumors.

In the first quarter of 2020, AMD benefitted from the pandemic, which boosted demand due to the work-from-home economy. PC and server sales exceeded expectations; Ryzen and EPYC series processors shipments were strong, driving first quarter revenue up by 40% compared to the same period in 2019. Earnings were also better than market expectations.

Despite AMD’s conservative outlook for Q2, with revenue estimates between $1.75B and $1.95B, it is still up by 21% compared with the same period in 2019, and up 4% sequentially, still a good result despite the traditional low season for PCs and the impact of the pandemic.

As understood, AMD’s desktop and server shipments have strengthened across the board since the second half of 2019, and demand has exceeded market expectations. Even AMD themselves and TSMC were caught by surprise. This has led to significant improvements in AMD’s profitability. TSMC happily welcomes the growing strength of its chip customers.

According to sources in the semiconductor industry, AMD had announced a comprehensive partnership with TSMC for sub-7nm processes, and has also confirmed mass production schedules for 7nm, 7nm EUV, 5nm and 3nm products. However, beyond expectations, AMD’s performance took a Great Leap Forward over the last one and a half years. Board, PC and server manufacturers significantly increased their ‘weightage’ (adoption of AMD products relative to others), in part due to Intel’s chip shortages. More importantly, the partnership with TSMC resulted in drastically improved product performance and yield, as well as price competitiveness for AMD, leading to rising shipments and market share quarter after quarter.

In 2020, because of the huge increase in sales, AMD has been urgently chasing after TSMC to expedite orders. The size of those orders were not small, becoming the greatest fallback for TSMC, which got caught in the Huawei ban crisis, making demand and production planning extremely difficult. As a result, TSMC is also adjusting (broadening) its services for AMD, and in considering the optimum allocation of production capacity, modified the process plans for AMD’s products.

As understood, TSMC has entered the 5nm era since April. The enhanced version of 5nm will also enter mass production in Q4, ahead of market expectations, and the first customer to adopt it is AMD, with its new Ryzen 4000 series processors.

AMD’s new generation Ryzen 4000 series processor (codenamed Vermeer), originally planned to use 7nm EUV, will be unveiled around Sep-Oct, but in line with the mass production schedule of TSMC’s enhanced 5nm process, will only be launched at the end of the year or during CES in Jan 2021.

According to semiconductor industry players, AMD plonked down a lot of money to enter the enhanced 5nm era, hoping to build upon its success and expand its leadership in advanced process technology before Intel’s 10nm process is fully deployed and 7nm process is yet to debut, once again capitalising on the narrative around introduction of advanced process technology and performance/efficiency improvements, to narrow its market share with Intel.

Judging by AMD’s current momentum and product performance, the enhanced 5nm Ryzen series processors will put unprecedented pressure on Intel. If Intel does not cut prices or accelerate the introduction of 10nm desktop processors, its empire may be gradually eroded by AMD, ushering in the biggest change in the global PC platform competitive landscape in 15 years: AMD’s market share can be expected to reach historical highs.

Separately, Nvidia has finally joined the 7nm bandwagon recently, entering full production in the second half of the year, while 5nm capacity continues to be reserved for Apple and HiSilicon, although the status of HiSilicon’s orders after Q4 is unknown due to the heightened US ban on Huawei.

Now, we have not directly seen the DigiTimes article, so we cannot vouch for its authenticity. We only have this picture to go by :

 

5 Reasons Why AMD Ryzen 4000 Will NOT Use 5nm TSMC Process

We have no idea whether the DigiTimes article exists, or was translated accurately, but we seriously doubt it will happen. Here’s why…

Reason #1 : AMD Unlikely To Delay Ryzen 4000 Desktop Launch To 2021

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed at CES 2020 that Zen 3 will debut in 2020, most likely around October to make it in time for the year-end holiday season.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the consumer launch of the Ryzen 4000 mobile processors, it is unlikely to delay the launch of the Ryzen 4000 desktop processors until early 2021.

Reason #2 : Desktop Ryzen Processors Don’t “Need” 5nm

While shrinking die size is generally a good thing, desktop processors like the upcoming 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 CPUs do not “need” a die shrink.

The focus will be on achieving high clock speeds at lower costs. That’s why the 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 desktop processors use a chiplet design – the CPU dies are fabricated on 7nm, while the I/O die is fabricated on 12nm.

A matured and improved 7nm process would allow the 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 processors to deliver higher clock speeds at a much lower cost than a new 5nm process.

Reason #3 : Mobile Ryzen Processors Will Likely Be First To Use 5nm

AMD is strongest in the desktop and HEDT segment, outperforming Intel by sheer brute force, thanks to the higher number of cores in their desktop Ryzen and Threadripper processors.

They are weakest in the mobile market, with Intel mobile processors still controlling the vast majority of the market.

To seriously take on Intel in this critical segment, AMD would probably leverage the costly 5nm process to give their future Ryzen 5000 mobile processors a significant advantage in both performance and power consumption.

Reason #4 : 5nm Not That Advantageous Over Improved 7nm

While a 5nm transistor node sounds like it will offer 28.5% smaller transistors than a 7nm node, the difference in reality is much smaller.

That’s partly because the transistor sizes – 7nm, 5nm – are really marketing terms, not precise engineering definitions – and partly because of diminishing returns.

In any case, the TSMC 5nm process promises to offer 25% better performance over 7nm, but their improved 7nm process will offer at least 10% better performance over 7nm.

In other words, the net performance difference between the TSMC 5nm and improved TSMC 7nm (N7+) is just 13.6%. The cost of 5nm would, no doubt, be far more than improved 7nm.

Reason #5 : 5nm Yields Are Still Poor

Another thing to consider with a new transistor node is yield. This is the problem Intel had with their 10nm process technology – poor yield.

As of December 2019, the 5nm TSMC process has an average yield per wafer of ~80% with a tiny die size of 17.92 mm2. That yield goes down to an abysmal 32% with a 100 mm2 die size.

While no one knows how big the Zen 3 die will be, it is safe to say it will be closer to 100 mm2. The Zen 2 die, for example, is 74 mm2 in size.

Will AMD risk the success of their 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 desktop processors on TSMC hitting reasonable yields on 5 nm? We think not!

Tech ARP Desktop CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 20.2

There are so many desktop CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications!

Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete.

Currently covering 1,338 desktop CPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare 19 different specifications for each and every desktop processor.

We hope it will prove to be a useful reference. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates!

To make it easy to compare the specifications, we split it up into three sections for your convenience. Just click on Split List to access them. However, if you prefer to compare all the CPUs for each company in a single table, we also have a single list which can be accessed by clicking on Full List. Just click on the company and the type of list you prefer.

For mobile and workstation CPUs, please refer to our Mobile CPU Comparison Guide and Workstation & Server CPU Comparison Guide.

AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile : Major Consumer Kick-Off In 2020!

AMD just kicked off a major consumer roll-out of the AMD Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors!

Join us for AMD’s official consumer tech briefing, and compare the full stack of Ryzen 4000 consumer and PRO mobile processors!

 

AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile : Major Consumer Kick-Off In 2020!

The AMD Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors was first unveiled at CES 2020, but its major roll-out got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To take on Intel’s considerable control of the laptop market, AMD prepared a formidable stack of 14 mobile processors – all with integrated Vega graphics.

To kick-off their 2020 assault on Intel’s mobile market stronghold, AMD lined up these laptops with their partners :

  • ASUS G14 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA + AMD FreeSync
  • ASUS G15 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA + AMD FreeSync
  • MSI Bravo : Ryzen 4000 H-series + Radeon RX 5500M + AMD FreeSync
  • Lenovo Legion 5 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA
  • Dell G5 15 SE : Ryzen 4000 H-series + Radeon RX 5600M + AMD FreeSync + AMD SmartShift

Recommended : AMD Radeon RX 5700M | RX 5600M : A Quick Primer!

 

AMD SmartShift : A Special Mention!

AMD SmartShift is a new technology that gives the new AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors better performance – up to 10% in games, and 12% in content creation.

It is basically a smart power distribution technique that dynamically improves CPU or GPU performance with a limited power budget.

For more details, we recommend reading AMD SmartShift Explained : Smart Power Distribution FTW!

Unfortunately, it’s not launching in all Ryzen 4000 laptops, only the Dell G5 15 SE at this time. So if you want to take advantage of this new AMD technology, we highly recommend you check out the Dell G5 15 SE.

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Review : Quite The Bargain @ $120!

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is more than just a slightly amped version of the Ryzen 3 3100. And it is quite the bargain at $120!

Find out why we gave this new AMD Ryzen 3 processor our Editor’s Choice Award!

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : Official Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the official AMD Ryzen 3 3300X tech briefing by AMD Ryzen Product Marketing Manager, Erin Maiorino.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : Key Features

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is a quad-core processor, with a 3.8 GHz base clock, and a 4.3 GHz boost clock.

It supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), and can therefore handle up to 8 threads at the same time.

New Chiplet Design

Unlike the previous Zen and Zen+ microarchitectures, Zen 2 uses a chiplet design that combines separate CPU chiplets with an I/O chiplet, using Infinity Fabric to connect them.

This chiplet design allows the performance-critical CPU chiplet to be fabricated on the 7 nm TSMC process, while the I/O functions are fabricated on the less expensive 12 nm GlobalFoundries process.

The new I/O chiplet adds PCIe 4.0 support, offering 24 lanes that can be increased to 40 lanes, when paired with the new AMD X570 motherboard.

4+0 CCX Configuration

Unlike the Ryzen 3 3100, the Ryzen 3 3300X uses a 4+0 CCX configuration. That means it uses a single CCX (Core Complex).

Its four cores directly communicate with each other, and share the same 16 MB L3 cache, allowing it to deliver better performance with lower latencies, than the Ryzen 3 3100.

TDP + Bundled Cooler

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X has a 65 watt TDP, which can be reduced to 45 watts using Ryzen Eco Mode. And it comes bundled with the Wraith Stealth cooler.

Socket AM4

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X continues to use the AMD AM4 socket, and is backward compatible with AMD 400 Series motherboards, as well as the new X570 and B550 chipsets.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

Will you look at that? The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is actually 9.6% faster than the Intel Core i7-8700K, and 18.7% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X in single-core performance!

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

Of course, the 3300X is still a quad-core processor, which means it will not perform as fast as 6-core processors, or 8-core processors.

Even so, it was actually as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores), and 72% as fast as the Ryzen 7 1800X (8 cores).

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

While it may appear that the Ryzen 3 3300X has superior SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) capabilities to the Intel Core i7-8700K, this is due to the fact that all four cores are in the same CCD (Core Chipset Die).

And it appears to have lower MT boost than the Ryzen 3 3100 because of its significantly better single-core performance.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Video Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

Despite having only four cores, the Ryzen 3 3300X was 89% as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores), and 75% as fast as the Ryzen 7 1800X (8 cores).

In other words, it was 30% to 45% more efficient per core, than both first-gen Ryzen processors.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop CC 14 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

Despite being a quad-core processor, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X actually beat  the Ryzen 5 1600X, a 6-core processor!

It is notable in this test that it is 18.5% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, very likely due to its 4+0 configuration.

Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X was 7% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, and just 14% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Ultimately, it was just 2% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, and only 3% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X or Ryzen 5 2600X!

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X was 9% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, and 6.7% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score…

At 4K, it was virtually as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X, edging out the Ryzen 3 3100 by just 2%.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a relatively recent racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

Will you look at that! This is why the number of CPU cores don’t really matter when it comes to games.

The cheap Ryzen 3 3300X delivered average frame rates on par with the 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the importance of CPU performance was greatly reduced. It didn’t matter which processor you used – they all delivered about the same frame rates.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

At 1080p, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X performed as well as the 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X, and was 14.6% better than the Ryzen 3 3100.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p though, it really didn’t matter that much which processor you used.

 

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

In this game, the single core CPU performance has a significant effect on the actual frame rate.

We tested it on three resolutions using the DirectX 12 API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

This showcases the importance of the Ryzen 3 3300X’s greatly-improved single-core performance. It actually delivered 23% and 24% better frame rates than the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X processors!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the Ryzen 3 3300X was 20% and 28% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X processors!

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : Our Verdict + Award!

Built around the Zen 2 microarchitecture, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X uses a chiplet design which combines 7 nm and 12 nm parts to deliver a more powerful, and power-efficient processor at a great price point.

The end result is significantly better single-core and multi-core performance over previous generation Ryzen processors.

 

Overall, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is roughly equivalent to the Ryzen 5 1600X, a first-gen 6-core Ryzen processor. In some benchmarks, it is perhaps 10% slower, and yet it is equal or faster in other benchmarks.

At first glance, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X may seem to be an amped-up Ryzen 3 3100, but its 4+0 configuration does confer it additional performance benefits above and beyond its higher clock speeds.

Now if you do a lot of 3D or video rendering, you should definitely get something like the Ryzen 7 3700X with 8 cores and 16 threads of processing power.

But if you want something cheap to power a gaming system, the Ryzen 3 3300X is a great, GREAT option. The money you save can go towards a better graphics card!

And we should point out again that this 4-core, 8-thread processor only costs US$120 / RM 549, and it’s bundled with a Wraith Stealth cooler to boot!

While not quite the steal that the Ryzen 3 3100 really is, it is still a darn good bargain. So we are giving it our Editor’s Choice Award too!

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : Where To Buy?

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X has a launch price of US$120 / ~£97 / ~A$190 / ~S$172 / RM 549..

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Review : A Steal At Just $99!

Don’t pooh-pooh the AMD Ryzen 3 3100. Read our review first!

It may be the baby of the 3rd Gen Ryzen family, but it delivers a lot of computing power for just $99! What a steal!

Find out why we gave this entry-level Ryzen processor our Editor’s Choice Award!

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 : Official Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the official AMD Ryzen 3 3100 tech briefing by AMD Ryzen Product Marketing Manager, Erin Maiorino.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 : Key Features

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 is a quad-core processor, with a 3.6 GHz base clock, and a 3.9 GHz boost clock.

It supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), and can therefore handle up to 8 threads at the same time.

New Chiplet Design

Unlike the previous Zen and Zen+ microarchitectures, Zen 2 uses a chiplet design that combines separate CPU chiplets with an I/O chiplet, using Infinity Fabric to connect them.

This chiplet design allows the performance-critical CPU chiplet to be fabricated on the 7 nm TSMC process, while the I/O functions are fabricated on the less expensive 12 nm GlobalFoundries process.

The new I/O chiplet adds PCIe 4.0 support, offering 24 lanes that can be increased to 40 lanes, when paired with the new AMD X570 motherboard.

2+2 CCX Configuration

Unlike the Ryzen 3 3300X, the Ryzen 3 3100 uses a 2+2 CCX configuration. That means it uses two CCXs with two cores in each CCX, communicating through the Infinity Fabric interconnect.

TDP + Bundled Cooler

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 has a 65 watt TDP, which can be reduced to 45 watts using Ryzen Eco Mode. And it comes bundled with the Wraith Stealth cooler.

Socket AM4

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 continues to use the AMD AM4 socket, and is backward compatible with AMD 400 Series motherboards, as well as the new X570 and B550 chipsets.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

On paper, the Ryzen 3 3100 has slower base and boost clock speeds than the Ryzen 7 2700X, but in reality, it has 5% better single-core performance!

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

Of course, it is still a 4-core, 8-thread processor, which means it will not perform as fast as 6-core processors, or 8-core processors.

Even so, the Ryzen 3 3100 was 91% as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores), and 65% as fast as the Ryzen 7 1800X (8 cores).

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

While it may appear that the Ryzen 3 3100 has superior SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) capabilities to the Intel Core i7-8700K, this is due to the fact that all four cores are in the same CCD (Core Chipset Die).

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Video Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

Despite having only four cores, the Ryzen 3 3100 was 86% as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores), and 72% as fast as the Ryzen 7 1800X (8 cores).

In other words, it was 30% to 45% more efficient per core, than both first-gen Ryzen processors.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop CC 14 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

For a quad-core processor, the Ryzen 3 3100 did very well, coming within 13% of a 6-core processor like the Ryzen 5 1600X.

But it is also notable that the Ryzen 3 3300X is significantly faster – very likely due to its 4+0 configuration.

Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 was just 6.6% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and 20% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Ultimately, it was just 1.8% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and only 5% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X or Ryzen 5 2600X!

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 was 8% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and 14% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score…

At 4K, it was just 2% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and only 3% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X. Practically no difference.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a relatively recent racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. This is why the number of CPU cores don’t really matter when it comes to games.

The cheap Ryzen 3 3100 delivered 13% higher frame rates than the 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the importance of CPU performance was greatly reduced. It didn’t matter which processor you used – they all delivered about the same frame rates.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

At 1080p, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 delivered average frame rates within 4% of the Ryzen 5 1600X, and within 8% of the Ryzen 7 1800X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, it really didn’t matter that much which processor you used.

1080p Gaming Resolution

This showcases the importance of the Ryzen 3 3100’s greatly-improved single-core performance. It actually delivered 6% and 7% better frame rates than the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X processors!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the Ryzen 3 3100 was 7% and 11% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X processors!

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Ryzen 3 3100 Comparison

Now that the first two 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 processors are out, here is a quick comparison of the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 processors!

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Ryzen 3 3100 : Official Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the official AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 tech briefing by AMD Ryzen Product Marketing Manager, Erin Maiorino.

 

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Ryzen 3 3100 : Comparison

Cores + SMT

They are both quad-core processors that supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), so they both can handle up to 8 threads at the same time.

CCX Difference

While they are both quad-core processors using a single CCD (Core Chipset Die), AMD configured both processors differently.

The Ryzen 3 3300X uses a single CCX (Core Complex) – its four cores directly communicate with each other, and share the same 16 MB L3 cache. AMD calls this a 4+0 configuration.

The Ryzen 3 3100 uses two CCXs with two cores in each CCX, sharing their own 8 MB L3 cache. The two CCXs communicate through the Infinity Fabric interconnect. This is known as the 2+2 configuration.

This difference has performance implications – Ryzen 3 3300X will deliver better performance with lower latencies, than the Ryzen 3 3100.

Clock Speed Difference

To further differentiate them, the Ryzen 3 3300X has a 200 MHz (5.55%) higher base clock and a 400 MHz (10.25%) higher boost clock.

TDP + Bundled Cooler

They both have a 65 watt TDP, which can be reduced to 45 watts using Ryzen Eco Mode. They also come bundled with the Wraith Stealth cooler.

AMD B550 Chipset : What You Need To Know!

AMD introduced the B550 chipset as part of their Spring 2020 desktop Ryzen update, offering PCI Express 4.0 support at a lower price point. Here is what you need to know!

 

AMD B550 Chipset : Official Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the official AMD B550 tech briefing by AMD Ryzen Product Marketing Manager, Erin Maiorino.

 

AMD B550 Chipset : Key Features

The AMD B550 chipset is an upgrade of the B450 chipset from 18 months ago, introducing three key features :

  • PCI Express 4.0 support for both graphics cards and NVMe storage
  • Dual GPU support
  • PCI Express 3.0 general purpose lanes

This AMD table gives you a good idea of what the B550 chipset offers over the B450, and how it differs from the X570.

It is obvious that unless you use multiple NVMe SSDs in your system, the new AMD B550 will offer a much better value proposition than the X570.

This diagram shows what PCI Express lanes and USB ports are available through the B550 chipset, and the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.

While AMD has been rather decent in providing backward compatibility for their newer Ryzen processors, eventually a chipset will not sufficiently support a newer processor.

Like the X570, the new B550 chipset will support future AMD Ryzen processors based on the Zen 3 microarchitecture.

 

AMD B550 Motherboard : Availability

AMD says that their partners have some 60 motherboard designs in the pipeline, and that you should expect some B550 motherboards to ship by 16 June 2020.

First 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 Processors : What You Need To Know!

AMD just unveiled the first two 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 processors – Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100!

Here is everything you need to know about the new AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 processors!

 

The AMD Ryzen 3000 Processor Family

The AMD Ryzen 3000 processor family, also known as the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor family, is based on the new AMD Zen 2 architecture, and fabricated on the 7 nm process technology.

The Ryzen 3000 processors boast significantly better single-threaded performance, with an L3 cache that is twice as large as the last-generation 2nd Gen Ryzen processors.

They are also PCIe 4.0-ready, offering 24 lanes that can be increased to 40 lanes, when paired with the new AMD X570 motherboard.

But the best part about these 3rd Gen Ryzen processors (for current AMD users) is their backward compatibility. As long as your AM4 motherboard has an updated BIOS, you can just upgrade to a brand-new Ryzen 3000 class processor!

First 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 CPUs : Ryzen 3 3300X | Ryzen 3 3100

Some ten months after they first announced the 3rd Gen Ryzen family, AMD has finally released their first 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 processors :

  • AMD Ryzen 3 3300X : 4C/8T CPU with 65W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3100 : 4C/8T CPU with 65W TDP

Unlike the Ryzen 3 2300X that was released recently, they both support SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading), allowing both 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 models to handle up to 8 simultaneous threads.

Both of these 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 processors will come bundled with the AMD Wraith Stealth cooler.
