The CEO of AMD, Lisa Su launched the Computex keynote, 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X  in Taipei today. This marked the first time, the company has been invited to do so. The event is to officially start tomorrow. AMD gave out new information about its chips and graphics processors at the presentation. In terms of pricing and performance, this will challenge competitors like Intel and Nvidia in terms of both price and performance.


July 7 shall be the day when all the new third-generation Ryzen CPUs, the first with 7-nanometer desktop chips go on sale. The announcement of AMD’s 12-core, 24-thread Rzyzen 9 3009x chip which happens to be the flagship of the third-generation Ryzen family was Su’s keynote. What should worry Intel is that AMD will sell the product at only $499 which is only half of Intel’s competing Core i9 9920x chipset priced at $1,189 upwards.

The 3900x boasts of 4.6 GHz boost speed with 70 MB of the total cache using 105 watts of thermal design power as against the i9 9920x’s 165 watts, making it more efficient. It is said by AMD that in a Blender demo against Intel i9-9920x, the 3900x finished quicker by about 18 percent.

Starting prices for other chips in the family stand at $199 for the 6-core, 12-thread 3600; $329 for the 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3700x coming with 4.4 GHz boost, 36 MB of total cache and a 65 watt TDP; and $399 for the for the 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3800X which comes with 4.5 Ghz, 32MBcache and 105 watt TDP.


It was also revealed by AMD that its first Navi graphics processor units will be the Radeon RX 5000 series. There’s close monitoring of the price as it may put pressure on Nvidia to scale down its prices to remain competitive. While the GPUs will be available only in July as announced by AMD, more details, including the price, performance and the new features won’t be revealed until E3 next month in Los Angeles

Data processors

It was announced by AMD that its EPYC Rome data center processors, first displayed at CES in January will be launched next quarter, a quarter ahead than previously expected with an intention to compete with Intel’s Cascade Lake. It was said by AMD that during a benchmark test, EPYC Rome’s performance was twice as fast as Cascade Lake’s.
