AMD also teased its Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series at CES. Not a whole lot of details were revealed, but AMD said the new 7nm chips will come with PCI Express 4.0 support. In a demonstration, an early silicon sample of the 3rd gen Ryzen processor was shown to be faster than the Intel Core i9-9900K in CineBench, while consuming significantly less power.

Shown on stage was an eight-core "Matisse" processor, this model packs a 7nm eight-core chiplet fabbed by TSMC and a 14nm I/O chip made at GlobalFoundries. You can expect the Ryzen 3000 series by mid-2019.
