AMD Vs Intel, who won Computex 2019?

Intel vs AMD, Computex 2019

If a few years ago, most of us would not have imagined that AMD would be giving Intel a chance for its money. Since the launch of the Ryzen CPUs, the "AMD Vs Intel" debate has only accelerated.

Ryzen CPUs were the first AMD product in years that really challenged the Intel CPU in terms of performance and price. Since then, AMD has continued its streak, has even captured entire markets in some regions and could even become the market leader in the coming years.

Now that both AMD and Intel have revealed their products at Computex 2019, it is time again to have that debate between AMD and Intel and see who won the Computex 2019.

AMD vs Intel

The rules of comparisons are simple. I will examine the most notable products announced by both companies at Computex 2019. I will compare AMD and Intel products for their price and performance and, in the end, I will deduce who won the Computex 2019.

The best game processor in the world

The Intel CPU combined with an Nvidia GPU has always been the dominant game combination. However, with the arrival of AMD Ryzen, things began to change a bit as Ryzen CPUs showed more core / thread counts compared to Intel.

9th Gen Intel® Core ™ i9-9900K

This time, Intel has pulled great weapons and announced the 9th generation Intel Core i9-9900K, which Intel claims to be the "Best Game Processor in the World."

The processor has 8 cores / 16 threads and each of the cores is capable of boosting 5.0 GHz. Meaning that the 8 cores operating at 5.0 GHz provide a significant increase in performance.

Base clock: 3.6 GHz
Booster Clock: 5.0 GHz
Core / Threads: 8/16
Cache: 16 MB
Memory: two channels DDR4-2666

Intel introduced the 9th generation Intel Core i9-9900KS special edition processor, the first to feature the 8 cores that run at a turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz, which makes the best gaming desktop processor even better.

As for the price, the CPU sells for $ 488 and pre-orders have already started for Intel Core i9-9900K.

  • Enabling more than 220 FPS in three of the most popular PC game titles worldwide4 4.
  • With Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0 technology that offers a single core frequency of up to 5.0 GHz, players can enjoy their favorite games with up to 10 percent5 5 more FPS in popular game titles compared to the previous generation, as well as up to 37 percent more FPS compared to a 3-year-old PC6 6.
  • Capture the game, transcode and stream while playing. With this type of mega-tasks, players can enjoy up to 11 percent7 7 more SPF compared to the previous generation and up to 41 percent more SPF compared to a 3-year-old PC.

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

During its Keynote at Computex 2019, AMD introduced its 7 nm Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs. However, the highlight was the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, a 12-core / 24-thread CPU with a staggering 70 MB of cache memory.

As for the specifications, the Ryzen 9 3900X featured a 3.8GHz base clock, a 4.6GHz pulse clock and supports up to 3200MHz of DDR4 memory. Of course, the CPU is based on the AM4 socket that will be compatible until 2020. Therefore, it is not necessary to buy a new motherboard for the CPU.

In addition, AMD also showed benchmarks for Ryzen 9 3900X for multi-threaded and multi-threaded processes. Interestingly, 3900X outperforms the Intel Core i9-9900K, probably due to the high number of cores / threads.

Intel Z390 Chipset

Intel also announced its new Z390 chipset to take advantage of the "full potential of the new 9th generation Intel Core processor." That is, if you want to use the Intel Core i9-9900K, you need a new motherboard with the Z390 chipset.

The chipset is compatible with "USB 3.1 Gen 2 integrated high-speed and Intel® Wireless-AC integrated with support for Gigabit Wi-Fi speed".

AMD AM4 X570 Chipset

Like Intel, AMD has also announced its new AM4 X570 chipset, which is not really necessary since the AM4 socket is compatible with older chipsets. But unlike Intel, AMD's new AM4 X570 chipset introduces us to PCI Express® 4.0.

The new PCIe 4.0 standard DOUBLES PCIe 3.0 bandwidth up to 2 GB / s per lane, or up to 32 GB / s in an x16 slot, allowing new generations of high-performance graphics cards, network devices, NVMe units, ethernet cards and more.

AMD Radeon RX 5700

AMD also made fun of its Radeon RX 5700 during its inaugural speech Computex 2019. AMD states "A new design of computer unit" for its GPU RX 5000 Navi. As for the architecture, the GPU is based on the RDNA architecture.

AMD Navi Radeon RX 5700

AMD did not go into details, but said its GPU is 10{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} faster than Nvidia RTX 2070. However, AMD only showed benchmarks for Strange Brigade, so I hope AMD will show live game demonstrations at E3 2019 to show what the GPU is capable of.

Intel, on the other hand, is not in the GPU business, but the company is working on its own GPU that will be launched in 2020. However, Intel has confirmed the real-time ray tracing for its Xe GPU architecture.

AMD EPYC Rome and It Powering The World, the fastest supercomputer

During the event, AMD announced that AMD EPYC Rome will push the "border", which will be the fastest supercomputer in the world. According to AMD, EPYC Rome provides twice the performance per socket compared to previous EPYC models.

AMD demonstrated two AMD EPYC Rome processors on a dual-socket server that surpassed Intel's iconic Cascade Lake Xeon 8280 by a factor of two during a protein folding application. EPYC Rome processors will launch next quarter.

Intel & # 39; s 10th Gen 10nm Ice Lake CPUs

Intel has finally launched its 10 nm Ice Lake CPUs. These tenth-generation CPUs come with "Iris® Plus graphics bring large-scale artificial intelligence (AI) to the PC for the first time."

According to Intel, Iris® Plus graphics provide twice the graphics performance, 5 times the accelerated AI performance and almost 3 times the wireless speeds. In addition, Ice Lake 10 nm CPUs are the first to present Iris Plus graphics, based on the Gen11 graphics architecture. Therefore, expect some improvements in integrated graphics performance.

Intel's highly integrated tenth-generation Intel Core processors give OEM partners the freedom to innovate in design and aesthetics by reducing the silicon footprint and at the same time offering the latest and best standards and world-class performance.

Now that I have discussed and compared the notable announcements of AMD and Intel, it is time to announce the winner. Before that, here is a brief summary.

Intel announced the world's fastest gaming processor along with a new Z390 chipset for its ninth-generation CPUs like Intel® Core™ i7-9700K and Intel® Core™ i5-9600K, the 10nm ICe Lake CPUs are finally sent, but Intel is late for the party since AMD launched its 7nm CPUs and that's it.

On the other hand, AMD announced the Ryzen 9 3900X that easily surpasses the Intel Core i9-9900K.

In addition, AMD announced its AMD Ryzen 7 3800X, AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, AMD Ryzen 5 3600X and AMD Ryzen 6 3600. A new AM4 X570 chipset with PCI Express® 4.0 support that you don't need to have unless you want PCIe 4.0, EPYC Rome drives the "frontier" of the world's fastest supercomputer and the new Radeon RX 5700 GPU.

Clearly, the winner of Computex 2019 is AMD with its high-performance CPUs that outperforms the world's fastest gaming CPU from Intel and EPYC Rome that provides 2 times higher performance than previous EPYC models, Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs which still have a higher core / thread count than Intel CPUs.
