About to upgrade to a Ryzen 3000-series processor? You may want to demonstrate a bit of patience, as the latest rumors suggest that AMD’s next CPU generation will be especially spectacular. According to a post on Weibo by Ice universe, a well-known Samsung leaker, Zen 3 chips will flaunt IPC improvements of over 17 percent. His/her original comments were translated by @chiakokhua, whose interpretation is as follows:

“Internal rumors circulating among engineers at two well-known OEMs indicate that the performance of current Zen 3 engineering samples have risen to an ‘alarming’ level.”

“Judging from current information about Intel’s products that these two OEMs possess, AMD’s new Ryzen 4th generation will utterly beat Intel in both performance and power consumption.”

“AMD’s claimed ‘theoretical’ IPC improvement for Zen 3 is between 15 to 17 percent. But in testing, it felt better than AMD’s theoretical claims. According to engineers, actual performance of engineering samples could be better than that.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports of an impressive IPC uplift for Ryzen 4000 before. AMD’s data center chief, Forrest Norrod, had previously told The Street that Zen 3 will offer performance that’s “right in line with what you would expect from an entirely new architecture.”
