AMD has officially launched their refresh of Ryzen 3000XT Series 7nm Zen 2 processors to keep long-standing multicore performance crown amid Intel’s painful innovation stoppage at 14nm process technology in creating new CPU architecture. Sadly, Jim Keller’s departure has put more nails to Intel’s coffin because he was the only guy to make a widest performance swing which was proven by his Zen architecture creativity.
Latest Intel Core 10th Gen Comet Lake family CPUs are perfect in Gaming performance only but failed in multicore rendering benchmarks against one year old Ryzen 3rd Gen Matisse processors. Yet, price to performance metrics suggested that Intel is far from valuable choice award due to hot running 14nm outdated Comet Lake CPUs which desperately need premium AIO or water cooling method plus expensive Z490 motherboards.
3 new Ryzen 3000XT SKUs were added to dominate over Core i9, i7 and i5 10th Gen consumer processors. First one is the flagship 12 Core 24 Thread outstanding Ryzen 9 3900XT with improved +100 MHz precision boost clock frequency speed compared to it’s vanilla 3900X predecessor. With 3900XT version AMD decided to compete fiercely against Core i9-10900K to hold productivity crown till Zen 3 chips are baked well. Pricing terms stay unchanged for AMD 3 XT processors.
Ryzen 7 3800X has also taken new breath of life by getting it’s 3800XT model name with a whopping +200 Mhz boost clock increase over it’s previous version. In real-life benchmarks these boost clock numbers would bring faster multithreaded performance in latest games and rendering software like Davinci Resolve, AutoCAD, MATLAB and Lumion Pro.
Last one again to get XT refresh with +100 MHz boost frequency is Ryzen 5 3600X, so that 3600XT variant could able to stop i5-10600K from taking productivity performance domination from AMD’s Zen 2 architecture power. Official release date is slated for 7th July 2020. Let’s give chance to Intel in their rumored 10nm or 7nm process technology Rocket Lake architecture CPUs. Competition is really hot right now in consumer electronics market.
