Everything You Need to Know Before the Ryzen Launch

The launch of the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs along with the RX 5700 cards is almost a week away. But, we’ve already had a lot of leaks, especially for the Ryzen CPUs so let’s take a look at all the leaks and what we can expect from the upcoming CPUs.

The Leaks

Ryzen 3600 CPU Leak

The Ryzen 3600 benchmark leaks come thanks to El Chapuzas who released their benchmarks way before the embargo date. According to their benchmarks in Cinebench R15, the Ryzen 3600 outperforms the 8c/ 16t Ryzen 2700X. It also outperforms the Ryzen 1700X and the i7-9700K in Single and Multi-core tests.

Ryzen 3800X CPU Leak

Ryzen 3800 X SC Score: 5406 | Intel 9900K SC Score: 5211

The Ryzen 3800X which is an 8c/ 16t CPU trades blows and even outperforms the i9-9900K in Geekbench benchmarks. While it beats it in Multicore performance, it is somewhat slower than the i9 in Single-core tests. However, the board used for the 3800X was an X470 motherboard which means it wasn’t performing at 100%.

Ryzen 3950X CPU Leak

The Ryzen 3950X is the first mainstream 16c / 32t CPU that handily beats the i9-9980XE in the Geekbench benchmarks. It outclasses the $2000 i9 in both single and multicore benchmarks while just costing  $750.

Mystery CPU Leak

This CPU which might be an engineering sample seems to be running at an overclocked speed of 5.25Ghz on all cores. Its base frequency is 3.3Ghz so this is an extremely crazy overclock which explains the scores.

And this mystery CPU while not a 3950X because of the different base clock speeds, also seems to destroy the i9-9980XE.

RX 5700XT GPU Leak

The Navi RX 5700XT is also launching alongside the Ryzen CPUs.  And just like the Ryzen CPUs, we have a leak for this as well.

The RX 5700XT performs similar to the RTX 2070 in Time Spy as it scores 8719 in comparison to the 2070’s 8901. Do keep in mind that the Rx 5700XT will probably increase after launch thanks to the release of its drivers. Also, the Time Spy benchmark doesn’t always translate well when it comes to gaming performance so while this is a good showing, we’re yet to see game benchmarks.

AMD Reveals Radeon Navi RX 5700 At E3 2019

At the AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) “Next Horizon Gaming” livestream event at E3 today, President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su unveiled the company’s next-generation PC gaming platform, bringing new levels of performance and efficiency and introducing powerful features for gamers everywhere, based on the new AMD Radeon™ RX 5700 Series graphics cards and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors.

The AMD Radeon™ RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards are built on the new AMD RDNA gaming architecture to deliver superior visual fidelity, lightning-fast performance and advanced features to power the latest AAA and eSports titles. The new product family also includes the 50th Anniversary Edition AMD Radeon™ RX 5700 XT graphics card that commemorates the company’s 50th anniversary by offering increased clocks and a luxurious gold accented shroud featuring Dr. Lisa Su’s signature.

The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors deliver leadership performance across gaming, productivity and content creation applications, offering more performance-critical on-die cache than ever before. Today, Dr. Su previewed the latest addition to the product family – the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ 9 3950X, the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor.

“We’ve made significant technology bets to push the envelope on high-performance computing and give gamers the hardware they need to power the experiences they want,” said Dr. Su. “Our industry-leading Ryzen 3000 Series desktop processors and Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards combine leadership design, performance, technology, and efficiency to provide the ultimate gaming experiences. From super-fast frame rates, to new levels of visual realism and image quality, or the ability to easily create, capture and share gaming experiences, PCs featuring our new Ryzen processors and Radeon GPUs offer exceptional performance and features for every gamer at every price point.”

“Seventy percent of PC gamers today are using three-year-old or older graphics hardware1 that lacks the necessary horsepower and capabilities to deliver fully immersive, high-fidelity and high-performance gaming experiences,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “Our new Radeon graphics cards with RDNA redefine what’s possible in 1440p gameplay, delivering stunning visuals, amazing performance and industry-leading features to take gaming experiences to the next level.”

Superior 1440p Gaming

The AMD Radeon™ RX 5700 Series graphics cards include several powerful new features and capabilities to deliver superior 1440p gaming experiences, including:

  • Ground-breaking RDNA gaming architecture – Built from the ground up for superior performance, scalability and power efficiency, RDNA was designed to power the future of PC, console, mobile and cloud-based gaming for years to come. It features a new compute unit design optimized for improved efficiency, and a multi-level cache hierarchy designed to provide reduced latency, higher bandwidth and lower power. It also includes a streamlined graphics pipeline that is optimized for performance-per-clock and high clock speeds.
    Delivering up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clockand up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt3 compared to the previous-generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, RDNA provides the computational horsepower to enable thrilling, immersive gaming by enhancing explosions, physics, lighting effects and more, and by delivering fluid, high-framerate gaming experiences.
  • Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Restores clarity to in-game images that have been softened by other post-process effects. RIS combines with GPU uspcaling to provide sharp visuals at fluid frame rates on very high-resolution displays, and works across DirectX® 9, 12, and Vulkan® titles.
  • FidelityFX – An open-source developer toolkit available in the coming weeks on GPUOpen that makes it easier for developers to create high-quality post-processing effects that make games look beautiful while offering a balance of visual fidelity and performance. FidelityFX features Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) that draws out detail in low-contrast areas while minimizing artifacts caused by typical image sharpening routines. Developers plan to integrate CAS into a number of popular games, and Unity Technologies plans to integrate it into its real-time 3D development platform.
  • Radeon™ Anti-Lag – Optimized for eSports, Radeon™ Anti-Lag improves competitiveness by decreasing input-to-display response times by up to 31 percent4, delivering an experience similar to higher framerates.
  • Extreme refresh rates – RDNA enables DisplayPort™ 1.4 with Display Stream Compression (DSC) to deliver extreme refresh rates, color depth and resolutions up to 8K HDR at 60Hz or 4K HDR at 144+ Hz on cutting edge displays, including the world’s first monitor to support DSC: the new ASUS Republic of Gamers 43-inch monitor previewing at E3. The new monitor is capable of delivering 4K HDR at 144Hz with a single DisplayPort™ 1.4 cable.
  • Largest gaming display ecosystem5  With over 700 supported monitors to choose from, gamers can enjoy stutter-free, tear-free gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync™6 and Radeon FreeSync™ 2 HDR technology7.

The 7nm Radeon™ RX 5700 XT, RX 5700 and the 50th Anniversary Edition Radeon™ RX 5700 XT graphics cards are the first gaming graphics cards to support the PCIe® 4.0 interface. Additional product specs include:
