Following the 3rd generation Ryzen processors, the eyes are on the latest chips coming into the AM4 socket. Apparently, the 4th Generation Ryzen processors are coming in far more ambitious than anticipated.
Until now, it was known that the Zen 3 architecture would be a design based mainly on small optimizations and improvements in power consumption. Therefore, a performance similar to the Zen-Zen + transition was expected for performance improvement.
However, according to the latest leak, the Zen 3 architecture will bring about 8% performance improvement over the Zen 2. On the other hand, at the conference where EPYC solutions were introduced in England, important improvements to be made in the cache hierarchy in Zen 3 and arrangements in Infinity Fabric were mentioned. This corresponds to lower cache delays and higher clock speeds as well as IPC increase .
Another detail is from the frequency wing. According to information from AMD’s laboratories in China, Zen 3 chips can run at a frequency of 200 MHz higher than Zen 2, compared to early engineering samples of the same period. If the transmissions are correct, this may result in peak frequency reaching 5 GHz . On the other hand, the 200 MHz increase is not known as a result of TSMC’s 7 nm FinFET production process, or the result of an architectural advantage of Zen 3.

If we look back, the Ryzen chips starting at 4.1 GHz are remarkable from generation to generation. The data will show the exact results at the moment of the instant leak level. If the Zen 3 comes as mentioned, then there is nothing to say about the happiness of those who prefer Zen architecture over Kaby Lake in the first generation.
