AMD unveils new processors and graphics cards – South African pricing

AMD has launched a variety of new desktop processors and graphics cards, which it claims are designed to push the limits of gamers, enthusiasts, and content creators.

The new third-generation Ryzen CPUs boast higher clock speeds and larger L3 cache sizes than the previous generation, and the hardware giant claims the chips are well-equipped to provide a superior gaming experience across both 1080p and 1440p resolutions.

These processors also have improved efficiency numbers, offering up to 58% better performance-per-watt for the Ryzen 9 CPUs, and up to 30% better performance per watt for the Ryzen 7 chips.

The new Radeon graphics card lineup comprises two pieces of hardware that AMD claims are great value for 1440p gamers – the Radeon RX 5700 and the Radeon RX 5700 XT.

These GPUs support GDDR6 memory and PCIe 4.0, and provide up to 1.5-times the performance per watt compared to the previous generation.

Rebel Tech told MyBroadband that it expects these new CPUs and GPUs to arrive in South Africa later this week.
