Many AMD fans eagerly await the premiere of the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs, anticipating a new phase of the "core race" in the desktop segment. As expected, the new CPUs will receive up to 12 or 16 cores on the Zen 2 microarchitecture, forcing Intel to promptly prepare a 10-core Comet Lake-S response.
However, AMD Zen 2 processors will be notable not only for a high level of "raw" computing power, but also for improved performance in single-threaded loads. Motherboard manufacturers have tested Ryzen 3000 engineering samples since the first quarter. It is reported that new CPUs carry a 10-15% increase in IPC (the number of instructions executed per clock) compared to Zen + solutions and operate at frequencies up to 4.5 GHz. In addition, the updated DDR4 memory controller is able to work with faster modules.
Together with the AMD Ryzen 3000 processors, the X570 chipset debuts, supporting the PCI Express 4.0 interface in the mainstream desktop segment. The entire platform (CPU + chipset) will receive up to 40 PCI-E 4.0 lines, which will allow motherboards to be equipped with a large number of ports and expansion slots. Furthermore, USB 3.1 Gen2 (10 Gb / s), USB 2.0 and SATA 6 Gb / s controllers are integrated.
The official presentation of the AMD Ryzen 3000 (Zen 2) chips and motherboards based on the X570 chipset should be held as part of Computex 2019 (May 28 – June 1, Taipei). In the sale of new items will go in the middle of summer. As for the "popular" B550 chipset, it will be released not before mid-autumn.
The new CPUs can also be used with commercially available motherboards for the AM4 platform by updating the UEFI firmware. It should be kept in mind that in this case, some Ryzen 3000 "chip" processors will be inactive. For example, an integrated PCI Express 4.0 controller will operate at PCI-E 3.0 speeds.
According to the source, motherboards based on the AMD A320 budget logic cannot work with Ryzen 3000 processors. In other words, in addition to the X570 and B550 chipsets in the "red" field, work is probably underway to replace it in the form of a hypothetical A520.
