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. © YouTube 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 — AMD Ryzen (@AMDRyzen) May 27, 2019 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 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.
NVIDIA launched a brand new GPU for users who are budget conscious but still want to get the best experience for that price, and AMD, just days after, announced its new chip that will compete directly with the RTX 2080. © AMD In a roundtable attended by Gizmodo, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang laughed off the competition and described AMD's announcement as “underwhelming”. He claimed that the RTX 2080 will “crush” AMD's Radeon VII in benchmarks. “The performance is lousy,” said Huang, referring to AMD's latest GPU, Radeon 7. © AMD NVIDIA introduced a ray-tracing to their new GPUs and you can read all about it here. The technology has been developed over the past ten years in collaboration with Microsoft and game developers. You can read our review of the RTX 2080 and about its performance here. In our tests, the RTX 2080 performed extremely well with certain games and you can see our results below: © MensXP Ray tracing basically traces light in real-time that basically results in better textures, lighting effects, reflections and accurate shadows. AMD's latest GPU does not support this technology at the moment and the company claims it is 25 per cent more powerful than the previous generations. When asked, AMD CEO Lisa Su about Jensen's comments, Su responded, "What I would say is that we're very excited about Radeon VII, and I would probably suggest that he hasn't seen it yet." So, I guess we'll have to wait a few more weeks to see how things shake out with final hardware and drivers, and independent performance testing.
