It seems that Yuri Bubliy, better known for ” 1usmus ” and his DRAM calculator for AMD Ryzen processors, is going to the dark side and has leaked information, the most interesting of all being that with the arrival of AMD Ryzen 4000 processors for PCs. desktop, which comes equipped with the new Zen3 microarchitecture and an improved 7nm manufacturing process, we will see the launch of processors with a configuration not seen until now in AMD: 10 cores and 20 processing threads.
According to 1usmus, this information was hidden in the latest AGESA 126.96.36.199 microcode, and it will help AMD to further complicate things for Intel, as going from the current 12-core configuration to 10 will allow to increase frequencies and improve performance. in games against the 10-core Core i9, not to mention a price reduction, thus becoming a more serious rival and preventing Intel from making comparisons as its 8-core Core i7-10700K is better than the Ryzen 9 3950X of 16 cores, and the higher the number of cores, the more consumption, so the frequencies are lowered to reduce it and in games, the performance is greatly impaired, although this CPU is not focused on gaming, it serves Intel to make the perfect advertising.
Additionally, it talks about a new feature called ” Curve Optimizer “, this would allow to adjust the frequency of each processor core without restrictions and independently.
Finally, it indicates that the Zen3 microarchitecture will present the Infinity Fabric dividers. This should provide more flexibility to memory controller frequency settings, such as mixed mode. We will have to wait for more information to be filtered to know in detail all these features and any new ones that may have been implemented.
