AMD 12 Core Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 Series CPU ES Benchmark Leaked – Higher IPC vs Threadripper 1920X

May 14

We’re less than two weeks away from the official debut of AMD’s highly anticipated Zen 2 7nm based Ryzen 3000 series processors and today we’ve got another exciting leak.
As you’ve come to know by now, the new 3000 series from AMD will include a plethora of new multi-core processors, featuring up to 16 cores, on the company’s mainstream AM4 platform.

Today’s leak pertains to an engineering sample of the company’s upcoming 12 core variant, which based on all the whispers we’ve been hearing, will likely be the company’s new all round top selling high performance chip. This is thanks to a combination of “very high clock speeds”, a high core count as well as a more affordable price tag than the top end 16 core flagship.

So let’s get into the nitty gritty details. It’s crucial to first point out that this is an engineering sample, and one that we have in fact seen several months back. Although this time it’s been paired with a new motherboard, code named AMD Qogir-MTS.  It features relatively low clock speed, as expected for an engineering sample. Running at a 3.4 GHz base clock and a 3.7 GHz Turbo. The production units are expected to operate at significantly higher clock speeds than that.

The CPU has been paired with very modest 1600 MHz DDR4 memory and a 500GB HDD. Although, that’s not really the interesting part. The more interesting bit is how this chip compares to AMD’s existing 12 core Ryzen Threadripper 1920X. And it’s actually slightly faster, especially at floating point operations, despite having a slightly lower clock speed and significantly lower memory bandwidth.

This clearly indicates that Zen 2 brings noticeable IPC improvements to the table, enabling the new chips to deliver better performance per clock than their predecessors. This, combined with 7nm’s ability to deliver even higher clock speeds than current 14nm fabrication technology means that we can expect the Ryzen 3000 series to deliver nice single threaded and multi-threaded performance improvements.

All-in-all this bodes well for AMD’s new comers, which are literally around the corner. This summer is shaping up to be quite an exciting one and May 27th can’t come soon enough.
