In the first two days AMD released the Ryzen 3000XT series processors, mainly Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, Ryzen 5 3600XT three, they can be said to be the Ryzen 3000 frequency version, the highest acceleration frequency increased to 4.7GHz, 100MHz higher than the previous 4.6GHz. The specifications for these three processors are as follows:
Ryzen 5 3600XT: 6 core 12 threads, second-level cache 3MB, three-stage cache 32MB, reference frequency 3.8GHz, up to 4.5GHz (speed up 100MHz), thermal design power consumption of 95W, price of 1859 yuan, comes with a ghost radiator.
Ryzen 7 3800XT:8 core 16 threads, second-level cache 4MB, three-level cache 32MB, reference frequency 3.9GHz, up to 4.7GHz (speed up 200MHz), thermal design power consumption of 105W, price 3049 yuan, no original radiator.
Ryzen 9 3900XT:12 core 24 threads, second-level cache 6MB, three-level cache 64MB, reference frequency 3.8GHz, up to 4.7GHz (speed up 100MHz), thermal design power consumption of 105W, price of 3899 yuan, no original radiator.
What kind of improvement does the Ryzen 3000XT bring? AMD officials have summed up some of the key points for salesmen in their latest marketing materials, selling processors in 30 seconds as long as the clerk sits.
Some of the comparisons cited by AMD include the new StoreMI technology, Zen2 architecture, acceleration frequency 4.7GHz, PCIe 4.0 support, compatibility with previous generation boards, content creation performance significantly ahead of 61%, and more.
There are two things to watch, one is energy efficiency, AMD says the Ryzen 9 3900XT is 40% more energy efficient than the Core i9-9900K, which is no problem considering the advantages of multi-core.
Crucially, AMD says the Ryzen 3000XT processor offers the highest single-threaded performance compared to any mainstream desktop processor – which is surprising, and we all know that the 7nm Zen2 has a lot to offer, but in front of the Core of the 5GHz plus, the single-core performance is still lagging behind.
AMD is now an anomaly, the Ryzen 3000XT now increases the 100MHz acceleration frequency, dare to despise other processors on single-core performance?
Although AMD did not give evidence in this material, the high probability is that the CINEBENCH R20 single-threaded test, which we tested in this test, the Ryzen 3900XT is indeed slightly ahead of Core i9-10900K, although the vast majority of other tests are the latter’s single-core stronger.
