Gamers rise up! AMD, the company that is one of Intel's major rival has come up with a bunch of new ultra powerful and future proof processors. These not only take your game to the next level, but give your device a massive edge over the competition. Chip-maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has finally lifted the curtains to reveal six new CPUs, including the powerhouse that is the world's first 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X desktop processor which promises to transform the graphic experience.

At the "next horizon gaming" event at E3 here on Monday, AMD president and CEO Lisa Su announced the generational gear shift based on AMD Radeon RX5700 series graphic cards and 3rd generation AMD Ryzen desktop processors.

Based on the Zen 2 microprocessor core and new RDNA gaming architecture, the next generation enhancements promises a whole new experience for AAA and esports games. With the 16 cores that the processor houses, it is surely one of the best performing ones. As of now, there are no benchmarks other than the ones that AMD has given, but we expect the processor to have outstanding performance.

"We have made significant technology bets to push the envelope on high performance computing and give the gamers the hardware they need to power the experience they want," said Su.

AMD's new processors promise super fast frame rates, realistic visuals and image quality to the games blurring the gaps with reality. Not only is that great for gamers, but even for film editors and graphic designers, this is a huge development. Apart from the CPUs, the entire gaming experience will undergo transformation with memory support, drivers and screens.

The new line-up will be made available from July onwards and at a price less than the competing options. The flagship 16 core 32 thread Ryzen 9 3950 is priZed at $750. It has a huge 72 MB cache.
