Computex Starts off with huge AMD Announcements!

AMD have started off Computex 2019 with a some great news for all AMD fanatics, and most likely converting some of the Intel fanboys to AMD, with price to match performance with the new line up of the newly announced 3000 series processors and new gen graphics cards.


Dr Lisa Su has just finished her AMD keynote at Computex Taipei, shedding light on what AMD now has to offer, AMD can now rival Intel's CPU and NVIDIA's GPU line-up and offer a much lower price point and with competitive specs to match; we will do a separate blog on the newly announced video cards comparison at a later date.



Lisa started off the keynote talking about the processor line-up with AMD announcing 3rd generation AM4 socket with the new 7nm Zen 2 core with the worlds first PCIe 4.0 graphics card slot for much higher bandwidth for next generation graphics cards to be released.



AMD's new flag ship processor; the Ryzen 9 series 3900X has 12 cores 24 Threads, a base clock of 3.8 GHz and boosting up to 4.6 GHz on all cores and all with only 105w TDP and a price point of just $499 USD!


The AMD mid tier processor (which has the power to rival the current gen top tier) the Ryzen 7 3800X is an 8 core 16 threads with a base clock of 3.9 GHz boosting to 4.5 GHz, also having a 105W TDP is only $399 USD.

AMD have come out guns blazing, firing back at INTEL with this new line up of processors bringing balance back to the market with both performance, and a very attractive price point to match.


Lisa did a comparison against the Intel Core i9 9920X 12 Core LGA 2066 CPU, which we believe should of been against INTEL's 9900k or KS processor, which is more aimed at gaming but due to the core count we can understand AMD's decision and why they did a comparison against the 9920X. The above photo shows the performance chart that Lisa showcased the 3900X's performance increase at a much lower price point, 60W less power requirement and apparent better performance.



As we all know AMD will have a few motherboard partners creating new X570 chipset boards, but for this keynote ASUS have jumped onboard to let everyone know Republic of Gamers (ROG) will be creating high-end AMD boards to rival INTEL'S latest chip set with no compromises.


I have to say so far we are very impressed with AMD's latest line-up and can't wait to get hands on and testing these Processors in house when the go on the market on the 07/07/2019 word wide!


What are your thoughts on AMD's new line-up? Will you be upgrading? Is this enough to convert you from your Intel rig?
