Everyone loves a good rivalry in tech. Apple vs. Samsung. iOS vs. Android. PlayStation vs. Xbox. Intel vs. AMD. Now usually, Intel has dominated the processor performance and market-share crown. But that changed with the release of AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series of processors with their Zen 2 architecture. AMD absolutely crushed Intel in terms of performance, to the joy of PC enthusiasts everywhere. Now, as Intel had come to dominate the computer processor market, they had also become stagnant. They have been struggling with their 10nm yields for years.
The return of a competitive AMD has meant that the return of excitement to computer CPU segment. So, people are no doubt excited to see what AMD is going to do next with their Zen 3 architecture along with desktop-class Ryzen 4000 processors. These are expected to launch October, as we recently covered in a different article. According to a Twitter user, @1usmus Zen 3 CPUs are going to release in October. He posted that AMD was not interested in providing additional performance for Zen 2 as the Zen 3 release is in October.
And he seems to be on a role. According to another tweet by him, the Ryzen 4000 series is going to have a 10-core processor. With this AMD seems to have set their sights directly on the flagship Intel Comet Lake CPU, the Core i9-10900K which also has 10 cores. According to him, he was able to uncover all this information using the AGESA 18.104.22.168 firmware. Another feature he has found out is the “Curve Optimiser”. It will allow uses to configure the boost of the Ryzen processor. In addition, users will be able to customise the frequency for each core without any restrictions.
Overall, it looks like AMD is going to crush it again.
