    Phoronix: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series / Zen 3 Launch

    It's finally Zen 3 launch day! It's a virtual event given the ongoing pandemic, but this much anticipated CPU launch is now streaming.

    This was rather weak IMO. only game and cinebench comparisons, boring. Drink a shot whenever you hear "gaming processor".
    it was noted in the end that the ipc comparisons were made with a fixed clock on both 3800xt and 5800x. I'd be interested in
    a comparison to tiger lake, the 10900 is old tech.

    the other interesting thing was the the big navi benchmarks: they were very close to nvidia 3080 numbers.

      So it's a $50 uplift across the board compared to Zen 2 launch price which is disappointing, I was hoping for flat pricing.

        IPC uplift: In the video (9m29s) it is mentioned that Zen 3 has increased number of integer units, floating-point units, and loads&stores compared to Zen 2, although it is unclear whether this means more load&store units (3-4 loads and 2 stores per clock?) than Zen 2 (2 loads and 1 store per clock).

          their benchmarks show they're faster than intels current desktop lineup, so it's to be expected really. and apparenly intel won't have anything new to show until at least march 2021.

            Well for the 5600x vs 3600x launch price that's a 20% price increase for what probably equates to a 20% increase in performance (we await benchmarks) so no increase performance per dollar there.

              Highly skeptical of the 19% IPC and beating intel on single thread claims. The price increases are a huge slap in the face. They’re not even close to being a market leader yet and they’re wanting to gouge. Will probably still get a 5950X, hah.

                Yeah, felt more like a Zen 2+ really. Though it makes sense they focused on single threaded performance this generation, they can finally take the last crown back.

                  Michael typo on Ryzen 9 3950X, should be 5950X

                    Well, AMD has already doing a good job in basically everything but gaming. Gamers are pretty much the #1 complainers, so, they want to emphasize they can stop complaining now.
