The 7nm Zen2 family has been basically laid out, with only one desktop version of the APU, and the next generation of the 7nm Zen3 family is also in the wind and rain, and is expected to see the Ryzen 4000 series desktop processors, codenamed Vermeer, in September-October this year. Today, for the first time, we saw the engineering sample information of Zen3 Ryzen, of which three of the 8 core 16 threads are.
OPN numbers are 100-000000063-07/40_N, 100-00000063-08-46/40_Y, 100-000000063-23-44/38_N, corresponding to the benchmark, acceleration frequency is 4.0/4.6G, 4.0/4.6HzHz Hz,4G,4G.4.4.4G.
16 core 32 threads have two, OPN number is 100-000000059-14-46/37_Y, 100-0000000059-15-46/37_N, the corresponding benchmark, acceleration frequency is 3.7/4.6GHz.
The current 8 core Ryzen 9 3900X frequency of 3.8/4.6GHz, 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X is 3.5/4.7GHz, looks similar, but you know, Zen3 engineering sample version is still the earliest A0, this time the frequency setting will generally be conservative, and the benchmark frequency has been generally higher, acceleration frequency will be basically flat or higher, the subsequent A1 version, the zero version will certainly continue to increase significantly.
In other words, Zen3 in the case of the same process, just by virtue of the architecture upgrade, can achieve a much higher frequency, and ultimately accelerate the breakthrough of 5GHz is not a luxury, basically catch up with Intel’s level, has been relatively weak single-core performance is also expected to make new breakthroughs.
It can also be confirmed that the Zen3 architecture will change the design of the three-level cache from sharing within a single CCX module to all core shares within the entire chip (Die), i.e. the three-stage cache capacity available to each core is larger, faster, and can greatly improve the performance of games.
