An engineering pattern for a 12-core, 24-thread AMD Ryzen CPU has been noticed over at userbenchmark. The core-heavy chip is working on the AM4 platform, and from that we are able to deduce that it’s one of many first engineering samples we’ve seen for AMD’s 3rd Gen Ryzen processors.
Running at 3.4GHz base and clocking as much as 3.7GHz, this engineering pattern runs a good bit shy of the present Ryzen 7 2700X at 3.7GHz/4.3GHz. We’re not fearful, nonetheless, it’s nonetheless early days for AMD’s 7nm Zen 2 chiplets, with a launch not anticipated till someday late May/early June – simply in time for the Taipei tech present, Computex.
AMD introduced third Gen Ryzen over at CES this 12 months. During the keynote, Lisa Su held up a naked AM4 chip, providing up a glimpse of AMD’s Zen 2 chiplet design. That’s one 14nm I/O chip with a single eight-core 7nm chiplet crammed to the brim with processing cores. However, there was additionally enough space for another chiplet to make it onto the AM4 design – doubtless opening the door to as much as 16 cores of processing energy.
And this newest engineering pattern seems to be to be additional affirmation of AMD’s excessive core-count aspirations. This chip options 12 cores with SMT enabled for 24 threads, the results of two of these chiplets occupying the identical package deal substrate.
Top chips: These are the best CPUs for gaming proper now
As for the way these two chiplets carry out, that’s not fairly as sure. Sure, we have results (shout out to TUM_APISAK for his or her diligent leak-hounding), however we all know comparatively little about this engineering pattern for any legitimate comparability to be made. The benchmarking system was additionally working only a single 4GB system reminiscence of two,666MHz – removed from the perfect loadout, that’s for positive.

But if we throw warning to the wind and examine Granny Smith’s to the best Valencia Oranges in any case, this pattern manages a single core rating of 116pts, simply shy of the Ryzen 7 2700X’s rating of 120pts. In multi-core testing, the resolutely extra core-abundant engineering pattern manages a rating of 1,741pts, whereas the eight-core 2700X manages simply 1,355pts. None too shocking.
