We're just weeks away from the launch of what should arguably be AMD's biggest CPU launch of all time with its next-gen Ryzen 3000 series processors and now new leaks tease some performance numbers and CPU clock speeds.

AMD's new Zen 2 CPUs: 15% improved IPC perf, up to 4.5GHz |

AMD is in much need of an IPC boost and that's something the new Zen 2 architecture will take care of, doubled with the frequency reaching heights of 4.5GHz we should see some huge performance improvements over the current Zen-based Ryzen 2000 series CPUs. Mix this in with the exotic 7nm process node and you have a recipe for success for AMD, and with Intel supply issues continuing into Q3 2019 and no 10nm desktop CPUs in sight until possibly 2022... it could be potent.

The new Zen 2 architecture will arrive with an improved memory controller that will support DDR4 RAM at over 4000MHz, an improved execution pipeline, doubled core density, half the energy per operation, and so much more. The improvements that AMD will be delivering with the third-gen Ryzen CPUs is going to be mighty impressive.

We should expect big things from Zen 2, which will include:

Zen 2 improvements

  • Improved Execution Pipeline
  • Doubled Floating Point (256-bit) and Load/Store (Doubled Bandwidth)
  • Doubled Core Density
  • Half the Energy Per Operation
  • Improved Branch Prediction
  • Better Instruction Pre-Fetching
  • Re-Optimized Instruction Cache
  • Larger Op Cache
  • Increased Dispatch / Retire Bandwidth
  • Maintaining High Throughput for All Modes
