After the release of the 7nm Ryzen APU and mobile version selong 4000 early next month, AMD is a success in the 7nm Zen2 architecture, and the rest will have to go all out for the 7Zennm3 processor to be released in 2020. The latest news is very optimistic about the performance of the Zen3, which is believed to be a 50% jump in floating-point performance, driving a 17% improvement in average IPC performance, far exceeding previous expectations.
What we can know at present is that the Zen3 architecture has been developed, in 2020 will use the 7nm EUV process of power generation, it should continue to use Zen2 small chip architecture design, desktop 16 core, server 64 core will not continue to grow, AMD will focus on performance optimization.
The key question is how much performance can Zen3 improve? Given that the architecture and process are not major changes, Zen3 compared to Zen2 IPC performance improvement will not be significant, the previous forecast is between 10-15%, frankly this increase is already very high, especially for an improved version rather than a new architecture.
But the latest news on The RedGamingTech was more upbeat than expected, with Zen3’s integer performance improving by an average of 10-12%, but nearly 50% in applications with higher floating-point performance requirements. For most people, integer, floating-point performance is involved, in the daily operation of integer applications will be more.
If this hybrid operation were the case, the source said, the Zen3’s IPC performance improvement would be about 17 percent – a figure that could be said to be unexpected.
In addition, the original text also mentions the issue of increased frequency, from early samples, the Zen3 processor frequency did increase by 100-200MHz, but this is for the server-level Milan (Zen3 architecture of the next generation EPYC), the Rylong 4000 series of desktop processor frequency increase is uncertain.
Optimistically, the 32-core or even 64-core Milan processor frequencies can be increased by 100-200MHz, and the 8-16-core Ryalong 4000 Series boost 200-300MHz or more is not uncommon.
All in all, the redGamingTech website will make A rice very optimistic, IPC performance and frequency improvement is more or less than expected, if the 2020 Ryalong 4000 processor can go one step further, then AMD on the Zen3 processor is almost perfect.
