AMD have officially revealed their next-gen Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs on Computex 2019. New Ryzen lineup includes five new parts and the flagship model Ryzen 9 3900X will pack 12 cores and 24 threads. The launch is coming on 07 July 2019.

AMD's long-awaited 7nm technology is almost upon us. Five new desktop processors along with new Radeon graphics cards have been officially revealed by the tech giant at their keynote on Computex 2019 expo.

The flagship of the next-gen hardware is a monster, 12 core, 24 thread CPU Ryzen 9 3900X, which packs an insane amount of L3 cache - 64 MB - and runs at 3.8GHz base clock and 4.6GHz boost. The new flagship will cost $499.

Some rumours and reports suggest that AMD have another monster CPU up in their sleeve. Apparently, it's a 16 core, 32 thread CPU Ryzen 9 3950X, saved for Winter 2019-2020 release to counter yet another refresh of Intel's 14nm technology.

As you can see from the lineup below, Ryzen 9 3900X is followed by 8 core, 16 thread parts and two entry-level products - Ryzen 5 3600X and 3600. Just like previous CPUs, the new generation will also come with included coolers, with and without RGB lighting, depending on the CPU.

AMD showed a couple of benchmarks on Computex 2019, and of course, the most interesting ones for us were gaming benchmarks. It looks like that with the new CPUs, AMD managed to match and even beat Intel's lineup in some scenarios.

The company claim that when compared to Ryzen 7 2700X, their new CPU, Ryzen 7 3800X is a clear winner and offers up to 34 per cent better performance in some games. For example, in PUBG, the new CPU is faster 22 per cent, in Overwatch 20 per cent, and in League of Legends, you'll get 30 per cent more performance.

As for the GPUs, AMD didn't go into detail on these and more info is expected on E3 2019. However, we know that new GPUs are based on the all-new RDNA gaming architecture and will be branded as AMD Radeon RX 5700 series.

Apparently, new Radeons will deliver significantly better performance, power, and memory efficiency in a smaller package compared to the previous generation GCN architecture.

The release date for new hardware is set for 07 July 2019, in celebration of the new 7nm technology.
