AMD unveiled its much-anticipated 7-nanometer CPU, the third-generation Ryzen, during CEO Lisa Su's keynote Wednesday. The processor line will launch in mid-2019, with the top processor featuring eight cores and 16 threads. The CPU will also support PCIe 4.0, a first for a PC platform, according to Su. During her keynote, the company demonstrated the 7nm Ryzen's performance against Intel's flagship Core i9-9900K, showing a higher score using the benchmarking tool Cinebench while requiring 30 percent less power.
