In 2020, due to the impact of the epidemic, in addition to the recent surge in notebook computer sales, other PC markets have been impacted, and motherboard manufacturers are worried. However, AMD’s just-released 7nm Ryzen 3 series two quad-core CPUs and B550 chipset are expected to be life-saving straws.
The Ryzen 3000 series with the 7nm Zen2 architecture launched in July last year is mainly aimed at the mid-to-high-end market. The lowest is the Ryzen 5 series. The Ryzen 3 series was only released two days ago, mainly the Ryzen 3 3300X and the Ryzen 3 3100. Compared with the first- and second-generation Ryzen 3, the synchronous multi-threading (SMT) technology is also enabled for the first time, both of which are configured with 4 cores and 8 threads, and natively support PCIe 4.0 and DDR4-3200.
The Ryzen 3 3300X has a base frequency of 3.8GHz, a maximum acceleration of 4.3GHz, a second-level cache of 2MB, a third-level cache of 16MB, a thermal design power consumption of 65W, and comes with a ghost Stealth radiator, priced at $120.
The base frequency of the Ryzen 3 3100 is reduced to 3.6GHz, the maximum acceleration is reduced to 3.9GHz, the L2 and L3 caches are still 2MB and 16MB, and the thermal design power consumption is also 65W. It comes with a ghost Stealth radiator and is priced at $99.
According to data released by AMD, the CPU game performance of the Ryzen 3 3000 series is 20% ahead of its rivals, and its content creation performance is 75% ahead, with a very obvious advantage.
In addition, AMD also launched a new generation of chipset B550, which brought PCIe 4.0 technology on the X570 to the mainstream market. It still uses the AM4 interface socket and is fully compatible with the first, second and third generations of Ryzen CPUs and Ryzen APUs, of course. It is more recommended to match the Ryzen 5/3 series, which is cost-effective.
Under the combination of Ryzen 3 4-core + B550, the mainstream PC market is expected to usher in a new wave of growth this year. Major brands including ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Colorful, Gigabyte, MSI and other major brands have prepared about 60 B550 platforms. Willing to win.
The new generation of Ryzen 3 series will be launched in May 2020, and the B550 chipset host will be launched in June. The performance of motherboard manufacturers in the first half of the year can finally be recovered.
