AMD drops fresh Radeon RX 5700 minute print and a sixteen-core Ryzen 9 at E3 – The Tech Epic
AMD just wrapped up its Next Horizon Gaming event at E3, and as the company promised at Computex, it served up some details on the company's upcoming Radeon products.

AMD noteworthy wrapped up its Subsequent Horizon Gaming match at E3, and because the firm promised at Computex, it served up some minute print on the firm’s upcoming Radeon products. That’s no longer all we got, though—in the presentation’s final moments, AMD dropped a sixteen-core bomb on us in the originate of the Ryzen 9 3950X. I will salvage to that in a second; first, let’s talk about these fresh Radeons for a second.

So upright away, the above chart will doubtlessly give gerbils end. “What’s ‘Game clock’?” you wonder. Simply build, AMD’s old “Enhance clock” turned into once the maximum clock rate that the cardboard would hit. Since that turned into once more of a theoretical measure, the cardboard wouldn’t continuously hit that velocity all the diagram through gameplay, so for added transparency, AMD is now offering this “Game clock” metric to lend a hand avid gamers salvage an even bigger thought of the cardboard’s regular clock rate all the diagram through gameplay.

With that curiosity resolved, AMD is launching two fresh video playing cards in July: the Radeon RX 5700XT, and a a little bit de-tuned version that drops the “XT” suffix. The return to the “XT” branding for the pinnacle model is nostalgic, much more than the usage of the familiar “5700 series” moniker. As the firm acknowledged at Computex, the fresh playing cards are in step with the RDNA architecture, which is derived from but no longer only like the GCN architecture that has powered the firm’s playing cards since 2011.




AMD CEO Lisa Su holds a Radeon RX 5700XT Anniversary Edition card bearing her signature on the mask.

There may perchance be also a producing unit-overclocked model of the faster card on strategies to celebrate the firm’s fiftieth anniversary. That transfer reminds us of competitor Nvidia’s “Founders Edition” playing cards, as effectively as AMD’s cling “RX Vega Frontier Edition” card. The grey-and-gold heatsink mask comes with Lisa Su’s signature, and AMD says the Anniversary Edition will fully be readily available reveal from the firm’s internet assert material.




AMD in comparison itself to the competition in World Warfare Z.

On stage, AMD all over once more in comparison the Radeon RX 5700XT to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 as it did at Computex, and this time claimed victory in a brief World Warfare Z benchmark. We will quickly show off that World Warfare Z is a Vulkan title that performs very effectively on AMD hardware, so win these outcomes with quite of salt (as it is likely you’ll well maybe also unbiased restful any vendor-provided benchmark.)

The firm then in comparison the Radeon RX 5700 in opposition to the GeForce RTX 2060 in an real impromptu “benchmark” in Apex Legends, where one personality spammed incendiary grenades at one other. The RX 5700 held a more staunch frame rate than the GeForce card, but we cannot bid how representative this take a look at is.

AMD went on to communicate about one of the most important fresh software coming to Radeon playing cards, in conjunction with FidelityFX, Radeon Image Sharpening, and Radeon Anti-Slump. The firm demoed each purpose very quickly. FidelityFX looks to be a purple-crew version of Nvidia’s Gameworks library that gives AMD-authored visual effects for developers to exercise of their games, even supposing AMD’s version is beginning-offer. Or no longer it is no longer sure at all what Radeon Image Sharpening is. We will must take a bear a study and salvage more minute print from AMD about what this purpose if truth be told does.

Meanwhile, AMD claims Radeon Anti-Slump if truth be told reduces input budge, or “circulation to photon latency.” The “demo” of this purpose turned into once little more than an on-mask number reducing, and if fact be told turned into once a little bit underwhelming. Nonetheless, if it if truth be told works as described, it would maybe well maybe be barely gigantic for reaction-heavy games.

AMD did not provide many fresh minute print regarding the RDNA architecture on the circulation, and unfortunately, we’re no longer there at E3 to discuss with with the firm regarding the fresh chips. Nonetheless, the boys from Anandtech are on the scene, and Ryan Smith over there already has a barely solid preliminary write-up posted. Strive his article for some info about RDNA.

On the CPU aspect of issues, AMD lined the fresh Ryzen CPUs that it announced at Computex barely completely in the origin of its E3 portray, and we—love most viewers, we imagine—tuned out later on, feeling quite let-down by the dearth of a sixteen-core CPU announcement. Because it looks, Lisa Su saved the most racy for final, and launched the Ryzen 9 3950X to cessation out the portray.

Yes, certainly: it has sixteen cores, 32 threads, runs Three.5 GHz at inaccurate and boosts to 4.7 GHz. It has Sixty 4 MB of L3 cache, and it restful matches in Socket AM4 at a 105W TDP. Or no longer it is impressive stuff, and whereas the $749 mark impress looks high, protect in tips that AMD doubtlessly cannot bear the funds for to create that reasonably quite loads of these chips. We reckon these extensive Sixty 4-core EPYC CPUs salvage dibs on the most racy fully enabled Zen 2 chiplets.

AMD also announced release dates for the total fresh stuff. Launch “date,” anyway—other than the Ryzen 9 3950X (which is coming a whereas in September), the entirety else is launching world-wide on July 7.
