AMD's New Chipset Will Challenge Intel's Flagship Processor & It's Perfect For Indian PC Gamers

AMD announced a new chipset at Computex in Taipei today which is said to challenge Intel's top of the line Core i9 9920X chipset. It's called the Ryzen 9 3900x chip that has 24 threads and 12 cores making it one of the top gaming processors today. Another impressive feat about the new processor is its price, AMD announced the Ryzen 9 3900x chipset will sell for $499, which is half the price of Intel's offering.

Currently, Intel's Core i9 9920X chipset costs t $1,189 and upwards. Even when adding import duties for Indian customers, AMD's offering is very much more affordable and may just become the preferred choice amongst gamers. 

Here's an exclusive #COMPUTEX2019 look at the newest edition to the Ryzen family, the 12 core/24 thread 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor. https://t.co/OgLHoqWv9T pic.twitter.com/75FzfpdiKx

The 3900x is clocked at 4.6 GHz boost speed and has a total cache of 70 MB. In fact, it even uses less power than Intel's i9 9920 x as it has a 105 watts of thermal design power whereas the i9 uses 165 watts. AMD claims that in a Blender demo the 3900x is 18 per cent faster than Intel's offering. 

To say the least, AMD has also launched more affordable chips from the same family i.e. a 6-core, 12-thread 3600 for $329 and an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3700x (with 4.4 GHz boost, 36 MB of total cache and a 65-watt TDP); for $329 and an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3800X (4.5 GHz, 32MB cache, 105w) for $399. The pricing on the new AMD processors are not only aggressive but makes it more affordable for PC gaming markets such as India.

AMD also announced the next foundational gaming architecture i.e. RDNA. RDNA will power the upcoming 7nm Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards, which feature high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface. Currently, the pricing has not been revealed yet but we expect it to be cheaper than Nvidia's offering.
