AMD Ryzen 9 4950X leak has appeared – and it could take Intel's gaming crown

Image Description

A new leak has detailed AMD’s Zen 3-based Ryzen 9 4950X CPU - and it should have Intel worried.

This leak comes via Igors Lab, which reveals that the so-called Ryzen 9 4950X will be a 16-core, 32-thread part with an impressive boost frequency of 4.8GHz. 

The information comes from an OPN code which reads "100-000000059-52_48/35_Y." The ’35’ at the end signifies the 3.5 GHz base clock, with ’48’ telling us the boost clock is 4.8 GHz. That’s 100MHz higher than the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, which tops out at 4.7GHz. 

What’s more, this code likely refers to an engineering sample of the Zen 3 'Vermeer’ CPU, so it's likely that these clock speeds will be even higher at launch – potentially even entering Intel's 5GHz territory. 

Some reports speculate that the processor could undergo a name change ahead of its official unveiling, too, and claim AMD could skip the Ryzen 4000 series nomenclature on desktop to avoid confusion with its current-zen Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 mobile chips. 

While this leak doesn’t tell us much else about AMD’s incoming Zen 3 desktop CPUs, we’re expecting a major improvement in the performance department. 

A previous leak claims Ryzen 4000 CPUs will deliver 15% to 17% better IPC (instructions per clock) compared to AMD's Ryzen 3000 desktop processors, which is bad news for Intel. 

AMD is expected to launch its first Zen 3-based processors in September, likely just days after Intel reveals its long-awaited 10nm Tiger Lake CPUs

  • A surprisingly high number of home workers are being subjected to webcam surveillance

    A third of workers (32%) say that they are being monitored when working remotely, up by a third compared to just six months ago (24%), new research has found.

    A new survey from the Prospect trade union says that bosses frequently use webcams in people’s homes to keep track of their remote working employees, with 13% of home workers currently being tracked by a web camera, up by more than 100% since April (5%).

    Unsurprisingly, employees are not big fans of the practice, with the study finding four in five (80%) believe something should be done about it - whether that's a complete ban (52%), or heavily regulated (28%). Just 8% of workers think their bosses have every right to plug into a web camera whenever they want and see what their remote working employees are up to. 

    Calls for bans and tighter regulation

    The survey found that bosses seem particularly interested in keeping tabs on younger workers, with those aged 18 - 34 experiencing a “significantly higher” rate of monitoring compared to their older colleagues. 

    Overall, almost half (48%) of younger workers said they were being monitored at work, and a fifth (20%) said they were being monitored with cameras. 

    Prospect says its members are concerned these intrusive monitoring practices are affecting workers in sectors with higher levels of remote working, larger proportions of younger workers, and low levels of trade union membership, such as the tech sector. It has called for a “range of measures” to protect employees, from tougher regulation, to making sure employees are always consulted, to the necessity of full transparency on how the tech is used.

    The union has also called for the government to ban using cameras in people’s homes, unless there is a conference call or a video meeting.

    At the same time, the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) - the country’s data watchdog, was said to have been reviewing guidance to employers on how to use new technologies - monitoring included.
