3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors:
· More CPU cores and more simultaneous threads than Intel
· More performance for your dollar at every price point
Since 2017, the first two generations of AMD Ryzen processors have delivered impressive value, generally beating Intel for performance per dollar for multithreaded CPU performance. However, Intel CPUs have been generally faster at single-threaded performance, and, at the high end, Intel has also beaten AMD for multithreaded performance.
Intel remained the performance champ, while AMD became the value champ. However, with the new 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors shipping on July 7, the story is changing.
Now Ryzen is at rough parity with Intel Core desktop processors for single-core performance and meanwhile is beating Intel by a wide margin for multithreaded performance at the high end of mainstream desktop CPUs — all while easily exceeding Intel Core desktop processors for performance per dollar at every level.
You can see a bar chart of comparative performance by enlarging the graphic above. Multithreaded tests were run using the industry-standard benchmark, Cinebench R20.
Below is another performance comparison using the PassMark CPU Mark benchmark test. Testing so far shows that the $199 base Ryzen 5 3600 (a six-core CPU) has nearly tied Intel's flagship $499 Core i9-9900K CPU, an 8-core CPU. Meanwhile the $329 Ryzen 7 3700X (an 8-core CPU) is beating the Intel Core i9-9900K by 20%, and the Ryzen 9 3900x (a 12-core CPU) is beating the Intel Core i9-9900K by a shocking 59%!
Above: AMD's new Ryzen 9 3900X CPU is beating Intel's flagship Core i9-9900K desktop CPU by 60%!
Digital Tigers is pleased to feature 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen processors in the new Stratosphere Mini R4 workstation, which supports up to five monitors with fast performance at a terrific price. If you're someone who hates to choose between performance and value, why not choose both?
You may configure your Stratosphere Mini R4 system with any of the CPUs below:
AMD Ryzen 5 (3rd Gen)
AMD Ryzen 7 (3rd Gen)
- 6 cores processing 12 simultaneous threads
- Ryzen 5 3600 (standard): 3.6 - 4.2 GHz
- Ryzen 5 3600X: 3.8 - 4.4 GHz
AMD Ryzen 9 (3rd Gen)
- 8 cores processing 16 simultaneous threads
- Ryzen 7 3700X: 3.6 - 4.4 GHz
- Ryzen 7 3800X: 3.9 - 4.5 GHz
- 12 cores processing 24 simultaneous threads
- Ryzen 9 3900X: 3.5 - 4.7 GHz
3rd Gen AMD Ryzen's advantage over 9th Gen Intel Core CPUs
AMD's 3rd Generation Ryzen processors unleash faster performance than ever, with faster clock speeds, more cores, more virtual cores (measured by thread count), and more performance per dollar. Multithreading performance will typically favor 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen over 9th Gen Intel Core CPUs when comparing CPUs with the same number of cores and similar clock speeds.
To be specific, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 processors offer 8-core/16-thread architecture (simultaneous multithreading), while 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processors have 8-core/8-thread architecture with no simultaneous multithreading. Similarly, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 5 processors offer 6-core/12-thread architecture (simultaneous multithreading), while 9th Gen Intel Core i5 processors have 6-core/6-thread architecture with no simultaneous multithreading.
While number of cores typically matters more to performance than the number of threads processed simultaneously per CPU, at the same number of cores, simultaneous multithreading can boost performance by 20% or more. Certainly Intel agrees that simultaneous multithreading offers real performance benefits, because Intel builds this feature into all of its better high-end workstation and server CPUs. However, Intel chooses not to enable simultaneous multithreading (which Intel calls Hyper-Threading Technology) for the great majority of 9th Gen Core processors. By contrast, every AMD Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 CPU ever shipped offers the feature.
With more cores and more simultaneous threads, more work can be done in parallel, enabling smoother multitasking, more responsive financial trading indicators, and even faster web browsing when many tabs are open. There's a 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processor to meet every requirement and budget. Choose yours by customizing Stratosphere Mini R4 and pricing your complete configuration today!
Double-speed PCI Express 4.0 unleashes fastest-ever SSDs
Stratosphere Mini R4 is based on AMD's new flagship X570 chipset, which in turn enables the industry's first PCI Express 4.0 motherboards. PCI Express 4.0 doubles the system's internal bandwidth, unleashing higher performance SSDs and graphics.
Prior to PCI Express 4.0, the fastest SSDs have been plateaued recently at peak read speeds of 3500 MB/s and peak write speeds of 3000 - 3300 MB/s, nearly the theoretical limit (4000 MB/s) of the four PCI Express 3.0 lanes that serve as the communications channel for PCIe SSDs. Now with PCI Express 4.0, bandwidth per lane has been doubled, and the benefits are immediate in the form of much faster PCIe Gen4 SSDs that are already coming to market.
While these new SSDs are available from different brands, they all use the same Phison E16 controller and Toshiba TLC NAND flash memory, so are essentially the same product. This is because AMD invested $15 million to develop the new controller in nine months and to encourage partner companies to bring these blazing-fast SSDs to market in time for the 3rd Gen Ryzen launch on July 7.
Phison is one of the two leading independent SSD controller manufacturers whose controllers drive the industry's fastest consumer SSDs not made by Samsung or Western Digital, who make their own controllers. The existing Phison E12 controller drives our latest standard SSDs for Stratosphere Mini R4.
SSD options for this system
Stratosphere Mini R4 supports dual PCIe M.2 SSDs. You may configure your system using any of three types of NVMe SSDs:
- Affordable, fast Phison E12 SSDs in 256GB / 512GB / 1TB / 2TB capacities
- Samsung 970 EVO Plus, our most popular SSDs, with superb performance, in 500GB / 1TB / 2TB capacities
- Phison E16 PCIe Gen4 SSDs, with breakthrough performance up to 5000 MB/s, in 1TB or 2TB capacity
NVMe SSDs bypass the traditional SATA storage interface in computers and connect directly to the CPU via four dedicated PCI Express lanes. Those lanes are now double wide with PCI Express 4.0. The physical form factor for most NVMe SSDs as well as some SATA SSDs is known as M.2.
In 2009, Digital Tigers was first in the industry to ship SSD drives standard in desktop workstations. We've shipped thousands of systems since with Intel and Samsung SSDs, and only one has ever failed in customer hands.
