    Let's not forget that there is a rumour about naming them 5xxx instead of 4xxx, shall we?
    Other than that 4.8GHz boost with that roughly 15% IPC increase could do more harm to Intel than ever.
    I cannot wait to see these Zen3 CPUs.

    We shall not, as that is - a rumor.

    Industry sources have shared data about the clock speeds of a rumoured Ryzen 9 4950X Vermeer.

    So based on this sentence we should not talk about Zen3 at all :cool:

    Not surprised,we saw what xt line can do and it's barely any higher than early 7nm
    it's much,much more important for them to get the latency down than frequencies up.

    It will be much more interesting to see IF speed increases, and perhaps full bandwidth both ways (which for Zen2 it is not the case, Write is slower than Read, which makes core jumping very inefficient)

    It's only 100Mhz more on the boost than the 3950X. Hope it has some other improvements to increase performance.

    Rumours only but very promising. AMD has steadily improved since Zen 1 and trend seems to continue.

    That doesnt say anything as max turbo is extremely opportunistic and low load. What matters is frequency behavior under relative stress. If running CB for example still leads to ~4ghz runs the only uplift will come from the 8 core CCX instead of quad and whatever IPC improvements have been achieved.
    Hopefully there are real core clock / IF speed improvements too but I wouldnt hold my breath.

    The Engineering Sample has boost clock at 4.8Ghz :D

    Intel dreams will be crushed if this thing reaches 5ghz.

    My dreams will be crushed if they dont...

    My money is ready for the next build, waiting for our friend Lisa to release Zen3 so HH can give them a wild ride.

    4.8ghz on a Zen 3, 16 core cpu that will be available to the public in the upcoming months? Intel might wanna start rethinking their road map at this point. Or their management.

    +IPC, new cashe better optimized and bigger, higher IF speed and more optimized, different ccx interconnection for lower latency. I believe 20% more performance vs zen 2 series is doable.

    Gonna be swaping this 2700X space holder for a 4700X also. :)

    Crazy performance increase if true. Now AMD is going in all guns blazing.
    The 3950x is already a delightful chip, 20% performance increase on that would be insane.

    That is crazy for an ES sample. They must have had pretty high confidence the engineering sample would hit those clocks. If they really did move to 8-core CCX's with a 32MB cache that should get the latencies way down as well. This should finally be very good attempt to take Intel's performance crown away.

    I keep seeing people insinuate there will be a significant uplift in clocks from engineering samples, but there usually isn't anymore.
    The XT versions even dropped some clock speed from the original release/leak.
