What can you expect from today's event?
AMD will be introducing the Zen 3 microarchitecture for its next-gen Ryzen 5000 CPUs. The Ryzen 5000 is the successor of the Ryzen 3000 CPUs which housed the Zen 2 architecture.
By naming the new CPUs as Ryzen 5000, AMD has skipped the Ryzen 4000 naming scheme to avoid confusion between their successful Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs.
Last month, the specs for AMD's Zen 3 based CPUs were leaked. Zen 3 microarchitecture focuses on three key aspects- significant IPC gains, faster clocks, and higher efficiency. Zen 3 seems to be leaps and bounds better than the Zen 2 architecture.
The new Zen 3 based CPUs can prove to be game-changing especially if you are a professional gamer or streamer. So if you are one of them, make sure you tune in for the event. If you are not, tune in nevertheless.
