With a potential launch in 2020, speculation surrounding AMD’s next-generation CPU architecture is beginning to heat up. The newest rumors come from one of Red Gaming Tech’s sources, who claims that Zen 3 will bring IPC gains of over 8 percent. They also confirmed reports of early engineering samples hitting 100 to 200 MHz higher than Zen 2.

Being conservative (and this IS NOT what a source told me, I am giving an example), let’s say AMD hit 10 percent IPC gains with 200 – 300 MHz higher on average for zen 3, but still retain the same core counts as now, it would still make for incredibly compelling chips, especially for gamers.
