Higher speeds, more memory, and wider bandwidth than the previous generation. 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen&trade processors with the 7nm "Zen 2" core2 sets the standard for high performance: exclusive manufacturing technology, historic on-chip throughput, and revolutionary overall performance for gaming. From the beginning AMD's 3rd Gen Ryzen&trade processors were designed with this philosophy, to break expectations and set a new standard for high-performance gaming processors. That’s exactly what it does.
AMD Ryzen 3000 Series Desktop processor with Radeon graphics contained in this package is compatible with all 500 Series motherboards out-of-the box, and is compatible with 400 Series and A320 motherboards when a compatible BIOS update has been installed. Please visit the manufacturer’s website for your motherboard to verify support for your processor model, and for guidance on the BIOS update procedure(s). Motherboard packaging featuring either of the graphics (shown below) are compatible without requiring a BIOS update.
The new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs have arrived boasting higher performance gains over its predecessor lineup. With higher speeds, more memory and wider bandwidth the new Ryzen CPUs look to improve on and upgrade the way you relax, work and play. The AMD Ryzen 7 3800X processor includes 8 CPU Cores with 16 threads and a base clock of 3.9GHz that can be boosted to 4.5GHz. The new CPU's are backwards compatible with older motherboards thanks to the same AM4 slot socket however with the newly released chipset of X570 motherboards you can maximize the power the Ryzen CPUs have to offer. Support for DDR4 Memory continues but with the new Ryzen CPUs comes the new PCIe 4.0 Version which has improved the speeds of which your PCIe components such as graphics cards and some storage solutions communicate with the motherboard. Blur the line between elite gaming performance and workstation-class content creation with the most advanced desktop processors in the world.
