Ryzen 3000 series launch is on its way, but not soon enough? Waiting for a new product launch can seem to take forever, as we patiently wait to get our hands on the sweet new hardware.
I know lots of people have said since the release of Ryzen 1000 series that they are waiting for 7nm Ryzen to upgrade there PC’s. Myself I am eager to get my hands on the new processors to tinker with them. Testing, overclocking and pushing hardware to see just how much I can get out of it, is my jam. I have no real need for a bigger better cpu as my 2600x is plenty for what I do but for me its not about whether or not I need it. It’s a passion I have for tinkering with PC hardware. I must admit as much as I like gaming, I’d rather tinker with the hardware that plays those games.
I wont really get into the rumors flying around about the upcoming launch of the Ryzen 3000 series as that’s not really my thing. I much prefer to have it in my hands and testing it out for myself. Since that isn’t possible right now, it is fun to think about the possibilities. I will say though that I am hoping some of those rumors are true. For instance the 3600x with 8 cores and 16 threads. With improved IPC, 4.0 ghz base clocks and 4.8 ghz boost; sign me up for one of those. 🙂
What is known now
Last night I went to do a bios update on my current motherboard (Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro-Wifi) and noticed there was 2 bios updates. One of The new bios updates gives support for the new upcoming processors.
AMD has also confirmed that the new processors will work on all previous AM4 motherboards. There had been rumors that some of the new processors wouldn’t work on some of the older AM4 boards.
The new processors will support PCIe 4.0, so it is fair to assume that the new line up of motherboards will also support PCIe 4.0.
Dr. Lisa Su is scheduled to deliver a key note speech on Monday May 27th, at Computex. This is where we will likely hear all about the upcoming 3000 series lineup. I would personally love to be in attendance. Unfortunately that isn’t possible this year, so I will have to watch it live on YouTube.
I really hope AMD has a successful launch and their new product stack is incredibly good. We need the competition in this space to push us forward to bigger and better things. Progress is being made however, I mean look at where we are now from 5 years ago. Back then a six core processor would really put a strain on the wallet. While now six cores and 12 threads for under $300.00 is the norm. With this launch, if the rumors hold true, we will see faster clock speeds, improved IPC and more cores, at the same price point. It really is a great time to be a PC enthusiast.
Ryzen 3000 Series Launch Wait Game
For now all we can do is sit back, play some great games on the great hardware already in existence. As we wait patiently for that sweet, sweet new PC hardware that fills us with excitement. I personally can’t wait for Computex. I am looking forward to all the new hardware that will be unveiled. Its something I look forward to every year. It’s on my bucket list to make it to a Computex event, at least once. I know, nerdy right? Well this is Urban Dork after all. Nerds and dorks are all welcome here.
