Quick Look: AMD Ryzen 3000 Series

AMD has done it again. They’re taking the 7nm and giving the market the best desktop processors for the best value we’ve seen since the previous generation. With the Zen 2 Core architecture, AMD has been able to deliver up to a 15 percent IPC uplift, twice the cache size, and twice the floating point, for faster performance, with less heat, and lower power consumption.

Starting off the third Generation Ryzen lineup is the Ryzen 5 3600, which comes with 6-core, 12-thread performance, running at a boost speed of 4.2 GHz, with a 3.6 GHz base clock speed. This 65W processor brings fantastic performance at its price point about at par with other market offerings, at a great price.

Those looking for more power at great value needn’t look further than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800X. Both processors give you 8-core, 16 thread performance without breaking the bank. The 3800X runs at a 3.9 GHz base clock, with up to a 4.5 GHz boost for when your applications demand it. Whether for gaming, or content creation. The Ryzen 7 processors were made to deliver, and hit that sweet spot of performance and price.

If you want uncompromising performance, then you need the Ryzen 9. With the Ryzen 3900X’s 3.8 GHz base clock and 4.6 GHz boost, 12 cores, 24 threads, and 70MB Gamecache, it delivers unparalleled performance for content creation, and concurrent gaming and streaming.

All Ryzen processors come with PCIe 4.0 support, easy overclocking, and the Chroma-enabled Wraith Prism Cooler.
