Smart Access Memory Now Enabled For Ryzen 3000 CPUs!

Smart Access Memory Now Enabled For Ryzen 3000 CPUs!

AMD just enabled Smart Access Memory for select Ryzen 3000 desktop processors!

Find out what Smart Access Memory does, and how to enable it for a FREE boost in performance!

 

Smart Access Memory Now Enabled For Ryzen 3000 CPUs!

When AMD launched the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card, they also mentioned that Smart Access Memory is now enabled for Ryzen 3000 desktop processors, except :

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3400G
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3200G

This would give those older processors a small but FREE boost in performance, when paired with Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards and AMD 500 series motherboards.

To enable Smart Access Memory for your Ryzen 3000 / 5000 series PC, please follow the steps! 

Unfortunately, AMD has not enabled Smart Access Memory for Radeon RX 5000 series graphics cards, or AMD 400 series motherboards yet.

Smart Access Memory : How Does It Boost Ryzen 3000 Performance?

Smart Access Memory is AMD’s marketing term for their implementation of the PCI Express Resizable BAR (Base Address Registers) capability.

What does that mean exactly?

CPUs are traditionally limited to a 256 MB I/O memory address region for the GPU frame buffer. This of it as an “data dump” for stuff like textures, shaders and geometry.

Since this “data dump” is limited to 256 MB, the CPU can only send texture, shader and geometry data as and when the GPU requires them.

This introduces some latency – delay from when the GPU requires the data, and the CPU send them.

Turning on Resizable BAR or Smart Access Memory greatly expands the size of that data dump, letting the CPU directly access the GPU’s entire frame buffer memory.

Instead of transferring data when requested by the GPU, the CPU processes and stores the data directly in the graphics memory.

Graphics assets can be transferred to graphics memory in full, instead of in pieces. In addition, multiple transfers can occur simultaneously, instead of being queued up.

While this AMD graphic above suggests that Smart Access Memory will widen the memory path (and thus memory bandwidth) between the CPU and GPU, that is not true.

Smart Access Memory / Resizable BAR will not increase memory bandwidth.

What it does is let the CPU directly access the entire GPU frame buffer memory, instead of using the usual 256 MB “dump”. That reduces latency because the graphics assets are now accessible by the GPU at all times.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT In-Depth Review : Seriously?

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) is a slightly faster variant of the Ryzen 5 3600X, with a better CPU cooler.

Find out how it fares against the other processors, and why it left us quite perplexed…

 

AMD Ryzen 3000XT : Turbocharged? Not Quite…

The Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 5 3600XT are higher-speed variants existing 3rd Gen Ryzen processors. These XT variants are slightly different in their performance and the cooler they come with.

While the XT postfix implied these are turbocharged processors, that depends on the model :

  • 3900XT vs 3900X : 100 MHz faster boost clock + $50 higher price tag, no Wraith Prism RGB cooler
  • 3800XT vs 3800X : 200 MHz faster boost clocks, no Wraith Prism RGB cooler.
  • 3600XT vs 3600X : 100 MHz faster boost clock, Wraith Spire instead of Wraith Stealth

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : 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.

Its high base clock and large L3 cache appears to give the Ryzen 5 3600XT an advantage over the other processors in the single core test, besting the Ryzen 7 2700X by 22.7%.

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

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

This is very good performance for a 6-core processor, performing just 4.4% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is an 8-core, 16-thread processor.

But note that it is just 2.2% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X. Its performance advantages are mainly due to microarchitecture improvements in the 3rd Gen Ryzen.

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 performing better than the Ryzen 7 2700X, the Ryzen 5 3600XT does not do as well as the Ryzen 3 3300X, which has all of its processor cores in the same CCD (Core Chipset Die).

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : 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 just six cores, the Ryzen 5 3600XT is 91.3% as fast as the Ryzen 7 2700X, which has 8 cores.

But notably, it’s just 1.4% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : 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.

As a 6-core processor, the Ryzen 5 3600XT did well, coming within 17.6% of the 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X.

It also had a slightly wider 4% performance advantage over the Ryzen 5 3600X..

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 5 3600XT was just 5.2% slower than the Core i7-8700K, and 16.9% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

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.

Surprisingly, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT actually edged out the Core i7-8700K, and was just 2% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT was just 3.2% slower than the Core i7-8700K, and 5.4% slower than the Ryzen 7 2700X.

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

At 4K, it was neck-to-neck with the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 2700X. Obviously, CPU performance only has a small effect at this resolution.

 

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. CPU performance has only a small effect on the frame rate.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the importance of CPU performance was even smaller.

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

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT did well, tying with the Core i7-8700K and Ryzen 5 3600X. But as you can see, the effect of CPU performance on frame rate is small, even at 1080p.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, 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

Showcasing the importance of single-core performance, the Ryzen 5 3600X came within 7% of the Core i7-8700K.

But note that it was just 1.5% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X, and just 3.5% faster than the Ryzen 3 3300X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the Ryzen 5 3600X was just 6.2% slower than the Core i7-8700K, and just 1.8% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X, and 6.7% faster than the Ryzen 3 3300X.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : Our Verdict!

Built around the Zen 2 microarchitecture, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) 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.

There is no doubt that this 6-core, 12-thread processor offers great performance at a great price point, with a better Wraith Spire cooler to boot.

That said, we cannot understand why AMD would bother coming up with it in the first place.

On paper, it only offers a 100 MHz faster boost clock and a better Wraith Spire cooler over the existing Ryzen 5 3600X.

In real life, that translates into a negligible 1%~4% performance advantage over the Ryzen 5 3600X that no one will really notice.

Think of the Ryzen 5 3600XT as the Ryzen 5 3600X with a better Wraith Spire cooler… and a FREE game!

So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY)?

  • Buy : If it is the same price as the Ryzen 5 3600X, or at most 5% more expensive
  • Consider : If you are upgrading from a first-generation or second-generation Ryzen.
  • Avoid : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor, especially for a gaming system

Another alternative would be to purchase a Ryzen 5 3600X, especially if it is 10-15% cheaper.

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : Where To Buy?

Here are the official prices for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) processor, which will be available for purchase starting 7 July 2020.

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT : $249 / ~£198 / ~A$361 / RM 1,199

Tech ARP Eco-Mode Guide 3.0 for 3rd Gen Ryzen Processors!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the new Ryzen Eco-Mode for 3rd Gen Ryzen processors!

Find out when, how and why you should enable or disable the Ryzen Eco-Mode!

Updated @ 2019-11-17 : Added a guide on enabling PBO in the BIOS, and updated the article in general.

Updated @ 2019-11-09 : Added Robert Hallock’s video on Ryzen Eco-Mode, and a compatibility list.

Originally posted @ 2019-11-07

 

The New 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Eco-Mode

AMD Ryzen Master 2.0 comes with a new Eco-Mode for 3rd Gen Ryzen processors, but NOT the Ryzen 3000-series APUs.

AMD Senior Technical Marketing Manager, Robert Hallock, gives us a quick primer in this video.

What Eco-Mode does is lower the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor’s TDP by one step :

  • 105 W and 95 W processors will be limited to 65 W
  • 65 W processors will be limited to 45 W

The 3rd Gen Ryzen processor will manage core voltage and frequency automatically to keep to the new reduced power level.

Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), Automatic Overclocking (AOC) and manual overclocking will be disabled when Eco-Mode is enabled.

 

Impact Of Ryzen Eco-Mode

Enabling Eco-Mode naturally impacts the processor’s performance, but greatly reduces its power consumption with a significant drop in CPU temperature.

AMD shared this chart with us, comparing the performance of the new Ryzen 9 3950X, with and without Eco-Mode turned on.

With a 38% lower TDP, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X used 44% less power and ran 7°C cooler. On the downside, it was 23% slower.

However, it offers those on a limited TDP budget the option of using a CPU with more cores than would normally be possible.

 

Ryzen Eco-Mode Use Case

According to AMD Desktop Processor Technical Marketing Manager, Don Woligroski, Eco-Mode is best used by those who want to run high-end 3rd Gen Ryzen processors in Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs, NAS, Plex boxes, etc.

It will allow them to enjoy the performance of 12 or 16 cores, without worrying about overloading the SFF power supply, or excessive heat accumulating in the small chassis.

It can also be used to trade off Ryzen processor power for more graphics card power, if there is limited power at the system level.

Since it can be applied on-the-fly, you can also use it to greatly reduce power consumption and thermal output when you are not using your high-performance Ryzen system for strenuous work.

And when you need processing power, you can instantly turn it into a high-performance gaming or content creation system with a simple switch!

 

How To Enable / Disable Ryzen Eco-Mode

Ryzen Eco-Mode will NOT appear until PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) is enabled in the BIOS, so before you begin, check and make sure PBO has been enabled in the BIOS.

  1. Download and install AMD Ryzen Master 2.0, or newer.
  2. Select one of the four profiles to edit and use.
  3. Under Control Mode, select ECO-Mode.

  1. Click the Apply button at the bottom to activate Eco-Mode immediately.
  2. The processor will immediately manage its core voltages and frequencies to achieve the lower power target.
  3. To disable Eco-Mode, just select one of the four other control modes – Default, Precision Boost Overdrive, Auto Overclocking or Manual.

  1. Click the Apply button to disable Eco-Mode, and activate the selected control mode.

 

There Is No Eco-Mode Option In Ryzen Master!

If you do not see the Eco-Mode option in Ryzen Master, that’s because PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) is disabled in the BIOS.

  1. Reboot your computer, and go into BIOS setup
  2. Look for the PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) option, which may be hidden under overclocking options
  3. It will generally be set to Auto by default.
  4. Switch that to Enabled.
  5. Save the change, and reboot your computer.

After doing this, Eco-Mode will appear in Ryzen Master.

Our Advice On Buying The Ryzen 3rd Gen In The US

The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X appears to be a surprise hit. Due to overwhelming demand and extremely limited stocks, it is currently marked-up by a shocking 70% to $849.

The Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 7 3700X are also selling at marked-up prices of $484.99 and $399.99 respectively due to high demand.

The good news is you can still buy the Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 5 3600 at their SRP, or even at a slight discount – $239 and $199.99 respectively.

[adrotate group=”2″]

Our advice? Skip the Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 7 3700X for the moment. They are ridiculously overpriced.

If you must buy a Ryzen 7 processor, consider getting these Ryzen 2nd Gen bargains instead!

For pure gaming systems, you would do well with just the Ryzen 5 3600X or Ryzen 5 3600. They are more than fast enough, and you can get them at SRP!

Ryzen 3rd Gen Processor Primer

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!

AMD Celebrates Strong Ryzen + Radeon Sales In Malaysia!

Last night, AMD celebrated the strong Ryzen and Radeon sales in Malaysia with a party!

Here is our full coverage of AMD Malaysia’s Ryzen and Radeon Party!

 

The 2019 AMD Ryzen + Radeon Party In Malaysia!

Even though AMD just started selling the 3rd Generation Ryzen processors, and the Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards, they have seen unprecedented demand leading to shortages in Malaysia.

So the AMD Ryzen + Radeon Party was, in part, to assuage the local dealers who have had trouble getting enough Ryzen and Radeon units to sell.

That is a good problem for AMD to have though, which Ryan Sim, AMD ASEAN Sales and Marketing Director, acknowledges.

As AMD Malaysia’s Gene Lim would share in this video, AMD has already beaten Intel in the CPU market in Japan and South Korea.

He earlier shared during the GIGABYTE X570 launch that AMD currently has a 42-43% share in the Malaysian CPU market, and they should capture at least 50% in Q3 2019.

 

AMD Radeon RX 5700 Series Primer

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 series of graphics cards is built around the new AMD Navi GPU that uses the new RDNA architecture and fabricated on the 7 nm process technology.

Its redesigned Compute Units deliver 1.25X higher performance per clock, and up to 1.5X better performance per watt.

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.
