1. Testing by AMD performance labs on 08/15/2019, and on 08/17/2019, comparing an AMD Ryzen™ 9 3950X processor and Core i9-9960X, using the Cinebench R20 single-core benchmark score and Cinebench R20 multi-core benchmark score to measure single-core and multi-core performance for each processor. Results may vary. RZ3-72

2. “Advanced” defined as superior process technology in a smaller node and unique support for PCIe® Gen 4 in the gaming market as of 05/26/2019. RZ3-14

3. Specifications of 3rd generation Ryzen processors as of January 2, 2019. As of January 7, 2019, the AMD’s latest 2nd Generation Ryzen processors and Intel’s latest 9th Generation Intel Core processors use the PCIe Gen3 interface ( RZ3-2

4. AMD product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware.

5. Precision Boost Overdrive requires an AMD Ryzen Threadripper, AMD Ryzen 5 3000, AMD Ryzen 7 3000, or AMD Ryzen 9 3000 Series processor and a motherboard compatible with one or more of these processors. Because Precision Boost Overdrive enables operation of the processor outside of specifications and in excess of factory settings, use of the feature invalidates the AMD product warranty and may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer.
