The Third-Gen Ryzen 9 is a 7nm-Based CPU with 12 Cores

With a price that’s more affordable than Intel’s offering

AMD announced its third-generation Ryzen processors at Computex 2019. Leading the pack it the Ryzen 9 9300x—the first 7nm-based consumer CPU with 12 cores and 24 threads. AMD’s flagship Ryzen chip has a base clock speed of 3.6Ghz and a boost clock speed of up to 4.6Ghz. Compared to its closest rival—Intel’s Core i9-9920X—the Ryzen 9 9300x has a 105w TDP, which is more efficient than Intel’s 165w TDP.

All third-generation Ryzen chips come AMD’s Zen 2 architecture, and the company claims of up to 15% performance improvement across all applications compared to the previous generation.

It is also more affordable as well: the Ryzen 9 9300x sells for $499(~Php 26.1k), which is a fraction of the Core i9-9920X’s $1189(~Php 62.1k) asking price.

The rest of the 3rd-generation Ryzen lineup includes the 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 7 3800X—a mid-range processor that offers base and boost clock speeds of 3.9GHz/4.5GHz for $399(~Php 20.9k), the Ryzen 7 3700X, the Ryzen 5 3600, and the Ryzen 5 3600X.

All third-generation Ryzen chips will be available on July 7.
