AMD has announced its first 7nm processors will be Ryzen 3rd Generation and they are a doozy.
At its CES 2019 keynote, AMD debuted an unnamed octa-core, 16-thread part based on the company’s new 7nm Zen 2 architecture. The new CPU seems to be made specifically to go head-to-head with Intel’s flagship Core i9-9900K.
On stage, AMD benchmarked its secretive processor with Cinebench and it achieved a score of 2023 – by our own benchmarks the Intel Core i9-9900K and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X scored 1,873 and 1,798 points, respectively.
Basically, you’re looking at a 12% increase in performance with this AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processor.
