AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors have made a positive impact on the PC enthusiast market, the likes of which we haven't seen in years. From a performance-per-dollar standpoint, AMD's disruptive Zen 2 architecture offers a strong value proposition for new desktop PC builders from all walks of life and for many use cases including gaming, content creation and other workstation-class requirements. In fact, we were so impressed by Ryzen 3000 series processors in our launch review, that we decided we needed to have AMD's new architecture in our production flow here at HotHardware. This also presented us with an opportunity to call upon a few industry friends like Maingear Computers, Gigabyte, EVGA... Read more...
AMD renewed competition in the CPU space back in 2017, when its Zen-based Ryzen processors stormed the scene a couple of months earlier than originally anticipated. These processors combined good enough single-threaded performance with many core architectures at attractive prices. If you needed king-of-the-hill single thread performance, Intel was still on top, but Ryzen brought multi-core performance to a price point more palatable to the masses, and were great choices for general purpose workloads and multitasking alike. A year later, second-generation Ryzen CPUs based on the Zen+ architecture brought more performance per dollar, but the relative pecking order was maintained;... Read more...
By all accounts, AMD knocked it out of the park when it launched the Ryzen 3000 family of 7nm Zen 2 processors earlier this month (check out our review here). Not only did AMD strengthen its position with multi-threaded performance (long a strong suit), but the company also beefed up its sometimes lacking single-threaded performance. Couple the excellent all-around performance with attractive price points, and you can see why enthusiasts have been quick to snap up the processors. However, there's one particular SKU that has proved to be elusive to enthusiasts: the Ryzen 9 3900X. This is the current flagship of the Ryzen 3000 family; well, at least until the Ryzen 9 3950X arrives in September.... Read more...
The Core i9-9900K is among the fastest processors that Intel makes available for the mainstream/enthusiast segment of the market. The processor is part of Intel's 9th generation Core family, has 8 cores/16 threads along with a base clock of 3.6GHz and single-core boost of 5GHz. However, AMD is gunning for Intel in a big way with its lineup of Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors. We've already seen a number of overclocked benchmarks for the top dog Ryzen 9 3950X, but now we're getting some stock numbers for the 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X which sits just below it in AMD's processor hierarchy. New Geekbench results discovered by TUM_APISAK show that this 12-core... Read more...
