Advanced Micro Devices CEO Lisa Su announced the third-generation Ryzen Desktop processor in a keynote speech at CES 2019, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas this week.

AMD showed that the new high-end consumer chip could run Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 4 at more than 100 frames per second at a high resolution. Su also showed a chip and said it will support the ultra-fast PCIE 4.0 standard.

The chip is based on a new version of the Zen architecture, which can handle 52 percent more performance per clock cycle compared to the previous generation.

The chip will debut in the middle of 2019, as will AMD’s new Epyc processor for servers.
