Bullshit benchmarks, I want to see its against the current gen 1070 and 1080 cards,...

Hoping that 7nm cards will be good. I expect AMD to release them late next year or perhaps the year after that as TSMC is already kicking off fabs for them, doubt Nvidia will be doing anything with 7nm in that timespan though.

Providing the prices aren't stupid, my next card will be an AMD.

Intel is rumored to be putting out a "mainstream" 10-core Comet Lake-S CPU next year:

Meanwhile, AMD might put out a "mainstream" 16-core Ryzen 3 CPU.

AMD did the heavy lifting to evangelize multi-core over Ghz during the Bulldozer era.
Now Intel is taking advantage of that paradigm shift to cover for their inability to node shrink.

Even though the chip will probably be monstrous it shouldn't be too expensive to build since:

* 14nm++ is VERY VERY VERY mature
* Minimal new R&D costs to recover
* Intel owns the FAB's

I guess if these woes continue, Intel could start offering mainstream "multi-socket" motherboards,
add more DSP logic to the motherboard, hard-code more "macro ops", etc... just throw as much 14nm
silicon at the problem as possible whether it be on-die or in ancillary logic.
Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

Leak of Ryzen 3000 series, so take it with a grain of salt.

 

AMD Ryzen CPU   Cores/Threads Base Clock  Boost Clock TDP Price Debut

Ryzen 3 3300         6/12                3.2GHz         4.0GHz         50W $99 CES

Ryzen 3 3300X       6/12                3.5GHz         4.3GHz         65W $129 CES

Ryzen 3 3300G      6/12                3.0GHz         3.8GHz         65W $129 Q3 2019

Ryzen 5 3600         8/16                3.6GHz         4.4GHz         65W $178 CES

Ryzen 5 3600X       8/16                4.0GHz         4.8GHz         95W $229 CES

Ryzen 5 3600G      8/16                3.2GHz         4.0GHz         95W $199 Q3 2019

Ryzen 7 3700        12/24                3.8GHz         4.6GHz         95W $299 CES

Ryzen 7 3700X      12/24                4.2GHz         5.0GHz         105W $329 CES

Ryzen 9 3800X      16/32                3.9GHz         4.7GHz         125W $449 CES

Ryzen 9 3850X      16/32                4.3GHz         5.1GHz         135W $499 May 2019

 

In addition to the massive core count increases and price per core decreases, instructions per clock is also improving.

 

Also, I predicted 16 cores would land at $500. But 16 cores at $450, 12 cores at $300? Hot damn.

 

The two models with the "G" would be the ones with integrated graphics. Previously only some quad-core Ryzen desktop (and mobile) CPUs had integrated graphics.

 

The most exciting thing about this lineup is that quad-core isn't even a consideration. Ryzen mobile will probably have quad-core and may even be limited to 4 cores, but it's just gone on the desktop front. Big contrast from the years of being stuck at quad-core on the Intel side (and you can treat the old 4 module, 8-"core" AMD Bulldozer CPUs as quad-cores).

 

While it seems unusual for the clock speeds to be going up as you travel up the lineup, apparently the 6-8 core CPUs use a single 8-core chiplet, whereas the 12-16 cores use two 8-core chiplets. So the area of the chips containing CPU cores is physically larger and the thermals could be better. The others can be explained by TDP differences or binning/price differentiation.

There's a lot to unpack here.

 

  • More AVX-512.
  • 1 teraflops integrated graphics (although it is compared to 24 CU older version instead of 48 CUs to make it look better).
  • More explicit 10nm plans.
  • Adaptive Sync
  • Brand name for discrete graphics card in 2020: Xe
  • "Client" and "Datacenter" optimized discrete graphics cards, with "Client" apparently including integrated graphics and "Datacenter" including enthusiast (high-end) cards. Maybe that means that high memory bandwidth, non-crippled FP64, machine learning acceleration, etc. are enabled on high-end cards sold to gamers.
  • A rudimentary 3D packaging approach called FOVEROS.
  • Hybrid x86 chips, e.g. using Core i3 and Atom on the same die. Compare to ARM big.LITTLE.
