The AMD Ryzen 3000 range is based on the new Zen 2 core architecture, enabled with TSMC's state-of-the-art 7nm process node. AMD has again confirmed that the Zen 2 based processors of the Ryzen 3000 Series will be available for the AM4 desktop platform in July 2019.
AMD has significantly changed the CPU architecture to achieve twice the throughput of the first-generation Zen architecture. The main features include a completely redesigned execution pipeline, important floating-point advances that double the floating point registers to 256 bits, and double bandwidth for load / store units. One of the major enhancements for Zen 2 is the doubling of core density, which means that we now look at twice the core number for each core complex (CCX).
Zen 2 also includes stronger hardware-level improvements when it comes to security. This will further strengthen AMD CPUs over extended Specter variants, and these mitigations will be fully adopted by Zen 2. In terms of security, AMD already had strong software-level support and further improved it through low-level mitigations.
AMD CPU roadmap (2018-2020)
AMD's Next-Gen X570 Chipset – First Mainstream Platform to Support PCIe Gen 4, Rich in Features and Ready for Ryzen 3000 CPUs
As we saw on X470, there were some features of the Ryzen 2000 Processors that were only supported by new motherboards like Precision Boost Overdrive and XFR 2.0. There is no doubt that the Ryzen mainstream processor family based on AMD's Zen 2 offers some amazing new features. However, the most important highlight would be the support of PCIe Gen4. The X570 platform will be an all-PCIe Gen4 solution, meaning that this will most likely be the first consumer platform to support the new PCIe standard.
In terms of I / O details, the CPU will once again provide a total of 24 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, while the PCH will provide a total of 16 PCIe Gen 4 lanes. There will be a direct connection from the CPU to the first PCI Express x16 and PCI Express x4 slot, while the rest of the I / O will be handled by the X570-PCH connected to the CPU via an x4 connection.  We have already summarized all of the X570 motherboards announced during the Computex 2019, including the flagship X570 boards of all major manufacturers.
However, that does not mean that the AMD Ryzen 3000 series has since been compatible only on X570 boards. Like last time, the new CPUs are backward compatible with X470 and X370 boards. Below are links to each motherboard manufacturer's BIOS release for existing motherboards supporting 3rd generation AMD Ryzen CPUs:
They certainly will not have the features available in the newly launched X570 family but a completely stable functionality for users who just want to use a new CPU and continue to use their PCs without having to upgrade the motherboard and everything from scratch.
While talking about Ryzen 3000 processors, AMD's Senior Techincal Marketing Manager, Robert Hallock, has posted an informative video about the latest Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) updates for Ryzen 3000 processors. In the video, Robert explains that all AM4 motherboards (X570, X470, B450, X370, B350) meet the specifications for AMD Ryzen 3000 Series processors. In particular, the X570 platform allows the CPU to communicate with the motherboard to determine how many VRMs are available and use them to further boost frequencies beyond the proposed boost clocks.
This is a very welcome feature on some high-end motherboards that have many VRMs and performance phases. This feature fully utilizes the under-powered power of the X570 motherboard and increases the Ryzen 3000 chips in terms of clock frequency. Of course, there are a few other factors to consider, such as: However, overall, this is an interesting addition to the extended functionality of the Ryzen 3000 processors.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 Graphics Cards Compete with NVIDIA RTX SUPER – 7 nm RDNA, Updated Prices
AMD also launches the brand new Radeon RX 5700 graphics card based on the RDNA uArch. The Radeon RX 5700 series includes three graphics cards, the Radeon RX 5700 XT, the Radeon RX 5700 and the Radeon RX 5700 XT Anniversary Edition. The Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 series is also the first PCIe 4.0-compliant graphics series to offer twice the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0.
Official Specifications for AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT ($ 399)
Starting with Specifications The Radeon RX 5700 XT ships with a total of 40 computing units. Since AMD has already confirmed that the arithmetic unit still contains 64 stream processors, we will receive a total of 2560 stream processors. The AMD Navi GPU of the Radeon RX 5700 series comes with 160 texture mapping units and 64 Raster Operation units.
The chip itself is clocked at 1605 MHz base clock, but contains two additional clock rates, a boost clock and a game clock. The boost clock is 1905 MHz, while the game clock is at 1755 MHz. What I can tell from the differences between these two is that the boost is the maximum speed that the reference card can reach, while the average clock rate when playing is the "music box" itself.
With this AMD boost clock, the Radeon RX 5700 XT expects a maximum of 9.75 TFLOPs of single-precision computing. The card also has 8GB of GDDR6 memory, which runs over a 256-bit bus interface. AMD will use the latest 14 Gbps memory chips to match the Turing TU104 cards with a bandwidth of up to 448 GB / s. The card also has two 8-pin connectors and has a total board rating or TBP of 225 W.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 Official Specifications
The second card is the Radeon RX 5700, which is based on the Navi Pro GPU. The reason we do not get a Radeon RX 5700 Pro naming scheme is that it's harder to differentiate it from AMD's own Pro-Series cards targeted at content creators and workstation PCs.
This card has 2304 stream processors, 144 TMUs, 64 ROPs. The clocks are held at a base of 1465 MHz, a boost clock of 1725 MHz and a game clock of 1625 MHz. At peak times, the card can deliver a processing power of 7.95 TFLOPs. The card has an 8 + 6 pin connector configuration and has a nominal TBP of 180W.
Based on the TBP numbers, this card should now be compared to the RTX 2070, which is a 175W TBP graphics card. It will be interesting to compare both cards for efficiency, since the NVIDIA Turing cards are based on 12nm FinFET and AMD uses the latest 7nm process node. 19659007] In addition to the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700, AMD is launching a 50th Anniversary Edition version of their Radeon RX 5700 XT, featuring a black-gold coverage with 1680 MHz base clock frequencies, 1830 MHz clock cycle and boost Clocks of up to 1980 MHz. This variant would provide a total computing power of 10.14 TFLOPs and should be about 5-10% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. The card has a nominal power of 235 W TBP.
The reference version of the Radeon RX 5700 XT cards has an aluminum alloy housing and backplate. The card has an improved steam chamber cooled by a blower. The bottom of the steam chamber is made of thermal graphite interface material similar to the pads on the Radeon VII graphics card. On the board of the card is a 7-phase digital VRM, which according to AMD is intended for overclocking.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 & # 39; 7nm Navi RDNA & # 39; GPU Specifications:
Radeon RX 5700 "7 nm Navi RDNA GPU" Feature Set and Word on the HW-enabled Raytracing Function
In the following, we would like to explain some of the details of the RDNA architecture itself. However, we should also mention some highlights for the Navi GPU. According to AMD, the Navi 10 GPU is 14% faster with the same performance and should consume 23% less power at the same clock rate as the Vega 64 GPU. The AMD Navi GPU has a die size of 251 mm2 and delivers a 2.3-fold performance per area over Vega 64.
AMD is also developing its own suite for ray tracing. According to their vision, current GCN and RDNA architectures can perform raytracing for shaders that are used by ProRender for developers and Radeon Rays for developers. In the next generation of RDNA, to be launched in 2020 at 7nm + Node, AMD will provide hardware-based ray tracing with selected light effects for real-time gaming. AMD will also enable the raytracing feature for the entire scene, which can be used through cloud computing.
