  • AMD Ryzen 3000 processors beat sales records


    Priyanka

    In the market of computer hardware, there are two distinct competitors. And while Intel is developing its own discrete graphics cards, AMD has managed to distinguish impressive sales of one of its processors: Ryzen 7 3700X buy more often than the entire line of Intel chips.

    Ryzen 7

    Statistics shared by the German retailer Mindfactory. According to the source, in July 79% of the implemented chips belonged to AMD and only 21% — Intel. The model with record demand was AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, which accounted for about 80% of the sales of the Intel processor line.

    A month earlier, the same store announced the ratio of demand for AMD and Intel processors in the amount of 68% and 32%, respectively. In absolute terms, the sales statistics for the last months looks like this: while Intel sells one processor, buyers sweep away four AMD chips at once.

    Of course, the provided statistics concerns only one retailer and maybe uncharacteristic for the entire processor market. In addition, in the near future, Intel plans to give an answer to the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, presenting a 10-core chip family Comet Lake.

    There is an increase in demand for AMD chips in South Korea and Japan, where their share increased from 18% to 47% over the year. In many ways, the company owes such rapid dynamics to the Ryzen 3000 series, the demand for which exceeded all expectations.

      Having released the first processors based on Zen architecture, AMD not only returned to the technology race but also stirred up the market. The main competitor immediately stopped doing the same thing with slightly improved performance and engaged in an effective increase in productivity. Modified processors based on Zen 2 had to solve the remaining problems of "red". On the occasion of the release of the 3000 series Ryzen answer the most important questions.

      Key differences between Zen and Zen+ from Zen2
      The processor was divided into chipsets: instead of a monolithic crystal of cores and an integrated north bridge (memory and input-output controller), now there are three "pieces". Two of them are 7-nm computing cores with an input-output unit, as well as a 14-nm memory controller. The Infinity Fabric bus, which previously combined all this in one crystal, was laid out on a substrate. As a result, nothing seems to have changed for the system: processors after updating the BIOS are compatible with old motherboards. But the CPU itself has become much faster. Internal optimizations yielded a 21% performance increase in single-threaded tasks compared to Zen 1.

      To eliminate the "bottlenecks" associated with the division of the processor into three modules, AMD engineers have more than doubled the available amount of cache memory - the top model will have up to 70 MB of L3 cache. This solution, of course, makes the production of processors more difficult and more expensive but reduces delays in I/O operations and the dependence of CPU performance on the speed of working with RAM.
      New in Zen 2
      In addition to improvements in the layout, Zen 2 received a whole new technology. The key one is PCI Express 4.0 with a twofold increase in speed compared to version 3.0 per line. This high-speed parallel interface has actually become the standard for connecting peripherals. And if the performance of video cards is not affected by an upgrade, then for a slow data storage subsystem the doubled speed of data exchange with the RAM and the processor. Moreover, Gigabyte has already shown an SSD array with a read speed of up to 15 GB/s, using 4 PCI E 4.0 lanes. And Phison has single-chip models with a read speed of 5 GB/s and write - 4 GB/s. For comparison, the top models on PCI E 3.0 at best give out 3 - 3.5 GB/s.



      AMD came up with another important solution - they transferred the internuclear and interchip "communication" inside the chip to the new IF 2.0 bus. If before it was tied in frequency to a memory controller, now it has a frequency divider and asynchronous mode. When overclocking RAM to frequencies higher than 3800 MHz, the memory controller operates at half the frequency of IF 2.0.
      So if you need ultra-fast memory and access delays are not very important, you can go beyond the insurmountable overclocking barrier in the past. However, AMD itself recommends the use of modules with a frequency of no higher than 3600 MHz - with them the operation of the system is optimal both in the speed of linear operations and in access delays to memory banks.
      Performance gain
      It’s hard to take and say “productivity has grown by so many percents.” Because the internal structure of the CPU, the architecture for interacting with memory, the cache and process volumes, as well as the operating frequencies, have changed. Only AMD engineers know which parameters significantly influenced the speed of calculations, and which minimally improved the results. We will rely on their experience.

      The overall performance gain relative to Zen+ in the 2000 series was 21%. Approximately 13% gave architectural changes in the core of Zen 2, and about 8% - translation to 7-nm process and support for higher clock speeds at full load. The results of the dispersal also increased on all fronts. The CPU has increased the number of power and temperature control points. Now the system knows the state of the processor better - that is, it can run in maximum performance mode more often.
      The improved topology of the crystal, splitting it into three functional units and upgrade the tires Infinity Fabric enable you to squeeze out of the CPU on average on a 200 MHz higher than would be possible if a simple translation of the Zen+ to 7 nm. In addition, the x570 chipset supports new CPU overclocking tools both in UEFI mode and when Windows is loaded. In the first case, the menu was cleaned and arranged for ease of operation, in the second - made it easier to control and configure on an already running system.

      What is it all for?
      The separation of the crystal into "pieces" reduces defects in production and tightens product characteristics: iron is faster, acceleration is more efficient, prices are more variable. And new drives based on PCI Express 4.0 will make downloading games almost instant. As well as working with software that relies on reading from disk.
      Models, variants and provisional price
      At the start of sales, they promise the next alignment of forces. The senior will be the Ryzen 9 3900X - 12 cores and 24 threads at a base frequency of 3.8 GHz, but with auto-acceleration up to 4.6 depending on load. The Ryzen 7 line will include two eight-core. Ryzen 5 will be six-core, while the younger models with graphics, Ryzen 5 3400G (with solder under the lid) and Ryzen 3 3200G (with plastic thermal interface), will remain on the old Zen+ architecture. The flagship 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X will go on sale in the fall, presumably in September.

      The emergence of a new processor on the market is a challenge for overclockers: enthusiasts are trying to maximize the acceleration of iron to indicators not provided for in the documentation. But the first buyers of AMD Ryzen 3000 faced an unexpectedly limited overclocking potential of the new product. The situation was commented by the official representative of the vendor.

      It turned out that the processors of this model range out of the box work at the limit of power. AMD's senior technical marketing manager Robert Hollock, in a dialogue with users of the Reddit portal, confirmed that Precision Boost 2 technology already squeezes the best out of the new processors.
      According to him, the task of the company's engineers is to immediately maximize the performance of the product through special algorithms. Overclocking fans can't count on manual overclocking. They will get the same performance as the average user who knows nothing about overclocking.

    • OPPO Reno 3 review: Quad camera and lots of memory

      Last year's OPPO Reno 2 smartphone was remembered for its almost flagship characteristics. In the new generation, the emphasis has shifted - the role of the top-end device has been assigned to the Reno 3 Pro, and the standard “three” has become a mid-budget phone. However, Reno 3 received a powerful quad camera, high-quality screen, and a large amount of memory. We find out how good the new product is.

      Four rear modules and a 44-megapixel front-facing camera
      The main camera of Reno 3 received four modules, as in the top-end device of the series - Reno 3 Pro. However, there are some functions missing, such as interpolation up to 108 MP. All the blocks are arranged in a line on an islet that protrudes noticeably upwards if you wear the gadget without a cover.
      The main module has a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48 MP and a lens with an aperture of f/1.8. As usual, in standard mode, it produces 12-megapixel images, and if desired, you can take photos in full resolution - 48 MP. Telephoto is based on a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The ultra-wide Angle is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 2 MP sensor is designed to assess the depth of the scene.

      Telephoto, in addition to 2x optical zoom, provides a 5x hybrid zoom. The photo app allows you to quickly switch between four shooting modes: ultra-wide angle, 1x, 2x, and 5x.
      All modules can function together with HDR. This option works perfectly in Auto mode, improving both the light and dark tones of contrasting scenes. Artificial intelligence confidently recognizes the scenes being shot and selects settings.
      However, in non-standard lighting conditions, if you choose wide-angle optics, the color rendering will not always be accurate. This does not happen with the main module and the telephoto lens.

      The main module paired with the auxiliary module gives clear portraits and realistic blurs the background
      Reno 3 shoots well in mixed and artificial lighting, as well as in the absence of light in the dark. In the most problematic cases, the Night program helps out. It combines several shots and works out all the tones of contrasting scenes. For shooting with manual settings, an Expert preset is provided.
      Multi-megapixel selfies
      The front camera is built into the display and is located in the middle of its upper edge, in the "drop". The camera is equipped with a 44-megapixel sensor and a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens. The default settings are set to a 40-megapixel resolution of images. And the full one is selected by pressing a separate on-screen button. The image quality in both cases is approximately the same. Sharpness appears only from a distance of about 30 cm, that is, for example, it is impossible to obtain a macro photograph of your eye. It seems that the calculation was made for shooting with outstretched hands or a selfie stick. For self-portraits, there are traditionally many beauty options: smoothing the skin, correcting the shape of the face and nose, eye size, and so on.

      Selfies in 44MP mode
      The smartphone records 4K videos at 30 fps. The supported format is Full HD with 30 and 60 fps, as well as slow-motion clips in HD and Full HD. During movie shooting, you can freely switch the zoom.
      In 4K mode at 30 frames per second, the gadget produces a picture with the correct color reproduction and high definition. But when working with hands, stabilization is noticeably lacking.
      Shooting in Full HD at 60 fps uses Ultra Steady Video 2.0 stabilization, which makes the picture smoother.
      Work and entertainment without lags
      Reno 3 is built on an eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. The new product in AnTuTu gives out figures comparable to the results of Kirin 970 and Snapdragon 712, and slightly ahead of Snapdragon 710. And in the Geekbench 5 rating - is on par with Snapdragon 845. This speed is sufficient to avoid slowdowns in any applications.
      8 GB of RAM allows you to run multiple programs simultaneously. The built-in fingerprint sensor acts quickly and accurately. There are no performance problems in games. In the popular WoT: Blitz with default graphics settings, the frame rate is confidently kept at 60 fps.

      The device has only one main speaker, which produces clear sound without distortion up to about 90% of the volume. Plus, there is support for Dolby Atmos. In this software add-on, you can add surround sound and a bit of bass - a great option for multimedia applications.
      Unfortunately, you will not be able to create a full stereo pair, because the speaker is quieter than the main one. But in Reno3 Pro two speakers shake as if you are holding a good Bluetooth speaker in your hands. Complete in-ear headphones deliver high-quality sound. Thanks to the audio jack, you can connect your favorite accessory.

      The built-in storage is not too large: 128 GB. But it is easy to increase it by using a microSD memory card. It is placed in a triple slot next to two nano-SIM cards. We had a 512 GB test card at hand - it worked without problems.
      High autonomy
      The gadget is powered by a 4025 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. A 20 W adapter and a complete cable during the test provided recharging at high speed. For example, from 33 to 78%, the battery was charged in 13 minutes, and up to 100% in 27.
      An hour-long shootout in WoT: Blitz (display brightness - 50%) consumes 11 percent of the battery. That is, without going to the outlet, it is about 9 hours of offline gaming. In Flight-mode, with the same brightness, about 4.4% of the battery charge is spent per hour playing the video in Full HD. Therefore, you should expect 22 hours of offline video viewing. Excellent results!

      If long-term autonomy is not so important, you can disable power consumption optimization in the settings and select "High performance". In this case, the device will work a little faster, and the battery consumption will be stronger.
      Great screen
      Reno 3 is equipped with an AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a resolution of FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels), and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display occupies 90.8% of the front panel area, has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front and thin frames. The image is clear, with rich but natural colors. The viewing angles are large, and the brightness reserve is sufficient for using the phone on the street in any weather. With minimal screen light, it is comfortable to read in a dark room. And at night, you can switch to "Dark mode" - in fact, this is an inverse version of the design: with a black display and a white font. Many people will find it even more convenient, and it also saves battery life.
      Branded shell of the seventh version
      Reno 3 is running a proprietary ColorOS 7 shell based on Android 10. When comparing with the previous version, you can see that the font has not changed, but many icons have been redrawn. However, their shape and size can be easily changed at your own discretion. The screen can be converted to a split format - just make a three-finger swipe up.
      Specifications of OPPO Reno 3
      DISPLAY: 6.4 ", FHD + (2400x1080), 20: 9

      Summary
      The OPPO Reno 3 is an interesting device with balanced characteristics. From the first minutes, the beautiful design, slim body, and high-quality 6.4-inch screen make you happy. Later on - high performance, fast recharging, and good battery life. The advantages include the photo-filling, including a 44-megapixel front camera. In addition, the built-in drive can be expanded with a memory card, but not to the detriment of the second SIM card - a trifle, but nice.
