AMD Ryzen 3000 Series Price, Availability + Specifications!

AMD just topped the Ryzen 3000 processor family with the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X processor that boasts a massive 72 MB GameCache!

Here is the complete AMD Ryzen 3000 Series price list, availability and specifications!

 

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!

The AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen Deep Dive Tech Briefing!

AMD just revealed the 3rd Gen Ryzen family of processors at Computex 2019 and E3, with six models built on the 7 nm process technology!

Join us for a deep dive into the AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen technical details with Robert Hallock!

 

The AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen Deep Dive Tech Briefing!

Delivering the deep dive tech briefing this time is Robert Hallock. Robert, if you don’t know yet, is the Senior Technical Marketing Manager at AMD.

 

AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen Feature Summary

Zen 2 On 7 nm

The 3rd Gen Ryzen processors are based on the new Zen 2 architecture with the chiplet design approach. And they are fabricated on the 7 nm process technology!

Better Single-Threaded Performance

The new AMD Zen 2 architecture boasts 9% to 21% better single-threaded performance, which is critical for games.

Faster Clock Ramping

The 3rd Gen Ryzen processors support CPP2 – a clock speed selection interface for UEFI. This cuts the time to switch clock speeds from 30 ms to just 1-2 ms!

This will give them a nice 6% boost in performance, but only if you upgrade to the Windows 10 May 2019 update.

AMD GameCache

The new L3 cache is now twice as big as the L3 cache of the last-generation 2nd Gen Ryzen processors.

The 6-core and 8-core processors have a 32 MB L3 cache, while the 12-core and 16-core models have a massive 64 MB L3 cache!

Doubling the L3 cache size alone reduces the effective memory latency by up to 33 ns, giving your games a boost in frame rate of between 11% and 21%.

This is why AMD is calling it their GameCache…

3rd Gen Ryzen Is PCIe 4.0 Ready!

The AMD Ryzen 3000 processors have 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes. This gives you a total of 40 PCIe 4.0 lanes, when paired with a new AMD X570 motherboard.

Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO)

This new feature increases the boost clock overhead by 200 MHz (in 25 MHz increments) – basically easy overclocking for lazy people.

If you are using the Ryzen 9 3900X, PBO allows you to increase the boost clock from 4.6 GHz to 4.8 GHz.

Backward Compatibility

Even though AMD also announced the new X570 chipset, which gives you 16 extra PCIe 4.0 lanes; the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors can be installed in older AMD AM4 motherboards.

All you need to do is update your current AM4 motherboard’s BIOS before installing the new processors.
