According to the results, the new AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processor isn’t as powerful in the single-core and quad-core scores, which is a bit disappointing. However, in the multi-core benchmark, the AMD chip beats the i9-9900K, while the i9-7920X beats them both.
If these results are accurate (bearing in mind nothing has been confirmed) and this new 12-core Ryzen 3rd Generation chip exists, then the pricing of this CPU will be incredibly important. AMD might not be able to compete with Intel when it comes to power, but it can certainly undercut its rival when it comes to price.
