A range of chips starting from $ 330 to $ 500 for the Ryzen 9 12 core.

AMD announced on Monday the lineup of its Ryzen processors in its third generation at Computex with chips to be based on 7 nanometers of technology.

Top of the range is the Ryzen 9 3900X with an increase of $500, packing 12 cores, 24 threads handling, 2.8GHz with an increase in the base frequency of 4.6GHz and 70 MB cache.

“With many much, much more performance, that’s half the price of our competition,” said Dr. Lisa Su, CEO of AMD.

The Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 7 3700X are behind the Ryzen 9. Both chips have 8 cores and a cache of 36 MB, but the base frequency of 3.9GHz and 4.5GHz are higher than that of 3.6GHz and 4.4GHz of 3800X.

Where the $400 3800X requires 105W, the energy requirement for the Ryzen 9 is the same, the 3700X is a 65W chip, which costs $330.

Su said the Ryzen 3 series could provide 15% more instructions per clock cycle and had the cache and the floating point performance of the Ryzen 2 platform twice as high.

For Ryzen 5 3600X and 3600 are 6 core caching chips with 35 MB, with a 3,8GHz boost of 4,4 GHz and a base frequency of 3,6GHz, and a 4,2GHz boost of $250 and $200, respectively.

All manufacturers are available from 7 July.

The company also introduced its X570 AM4 socket chipset that is PCIe 4.0 capable of 42% faster storage performance, which AMD said was also able to demonstrate its upcoming 64-core Rome Epyc chip during the keynote, which is twice the performance of previous Epyc generation. Next quarter, Rome will be available.

Microsoft was saying that it would begin to offer Epyc chips as a high-performance computer with virtual HB series machines that can scale up to 10,000 cores.

“The HB-series provides more than 260 GB of memory bandwidth, 128 MB of L3 cache and 100 Gbs of InfiniBand based on SR-IOV with AMD Epyc processors,” Microsofter stated in a blog post.

“A customer can use a single distributed memory computer workload at a scale of 18,000 physical CPUs and more than 67 terabytes of memory.” Virtual machines are available in Azure’s South Central USA and Western Europe regions.
