The leaks on the new processors do not go a long way, especially when it comes to AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop processors of 7 nm. The source of the following filtration was the performance test database. User reference framework, which revealed a new test register of an engineering sample of the future 12-series Ryzen 3000 processor. We have already mentioned this chip, but now I want to consider the results of the tests themselves.
Thus, the engineering model with the code name 2D3212BGMCWH2_37 / 34_N was tested on a motherboard with the Qogir-MTS designation (probably an engineering board on an AMD X570) along with 16 GB DDR4-3200 RAM, one Radeon RX 550 video card and a 500 GB hard drive. . The frequency of this engineering sample is only 3.4 / 3.7 GHz. In the final version of the chip, the frequency will be clearly superior and, according to the rumors, the Ryzen 3000 of 12 cores will even be able to overclock up to 5.0 GHz.
Regarding the results of the tests, they are not at all admirable. If we compare the results of the engineering sample with the results of the 12-core AMD processor of the current generation, Ryzen Threadripper 2920X, it turns out that the new product loses up to 15%. Of course, there is a very significant difference in clock speeds: they are 3.5 / 4.3 GHz for Ryzen Threadripper 2920X. The final version of the 12-core Ryzen 3000 should be faster and more frequent, so it should surpass the Ryzen Threadripper 2920X. But the great difference to count for the moment is not necessary.
To justify the results of the Ryzen 3000, we note once again that it is only a sample of engineering with a fairly low frequency. In addition, it was probably tested with drivers not yet optimized. Finally, UserBenchmark can hardly be called a reliable source of information about the performance of a particular processor. Yes, judging by a test chip is clearly not worth it.
But, apparently, the increase of the yield due to the increase of the CPI will be inferior to the predicted thing. Keep in mind that this indicator will be, in any case, higher than that of Zen +, but the biggest increase will only be felt in some tasks. The good news is that before the announcement of Ryzen 3000 there is less than two weeks and, in the presentation, AMD will clearly share information on the performance of its new products.
